I know that the exotic drinks are probably the choice of most people on this site, but is there anyone here who would surely pass up that Mai Tai for a beer?? I will be the first to count myself on that list. I love my beer. It makes me happy, and witty, and handsome(well, the beer doesn't really do that. I'm already a looker), and obnoxious, and bolligerent. I just love my beer. Anyone else love their beer??

I know a few guys on this place who love there beer, me included but I will not pass up a good mai tai for a beer. Some of the guys here are expert mixologists. Hang around, you'll see. Don't feel put out but this subject has been discussed before.... in fact someone will probably post a link to a past thread soon.
Now I'm gonna get me a beer...hey it's easy.

Well, there is one drink that I really enjoy, the Coconaut. But I'll still pick a beer first. It's like alcoholic soda, I love it. Working on a 12 pack as we speak. Drinking beer, watching a Melvins DVD, painting. It's a good night.

Hey Larz-

Find EKU28 . A "Very Intense" beer. Drink a 6 pack and then tell me what you think. High Times in Costa Mesa has it if it's not avail. in Whittier. Stop talking and go on this mission. Trust me!

Interesitng question Lars...
This would be a major problem for me:
to drink a "Perfect" Mai-Tai or to drink a perfectly poured pint of guinness...
I'd probably end up drinking them both...but the guinness first.
However, I never run into this situation, as niether of the two are ever available at the same drinking establishment.

EKU28--he's not kidding. I've tried it. If you can get past the taste, it will definitely get you f***ed up! I was told at the time it was the world's strongest beer.
Here's a page about it.

Ben, I used to drink that stuff at the hofbrauhaus in Olde World Village (just down the road from you in H.B.). Some ass kickin' brewsky fer sure! Lately I been drinking it's little brother, Spaten Optimator (weighing in at 7.2%). Of course when I feel like I need to excellerate the inebreation process, I bring out the local favorite...Stone Ruination Ale. Which (as Monty Python would say) has a bouquet like an aborigine's armpit and really opens up the sluices at both ends.

Lone Star Beer, and Shiner Bock are my beer faves. I've tried others, I'll drink others if given to me, but I always go back to the Texas beers. Love those German imigrants/transplants. Oh and I don't drink light beers. I have one word for that PI**-Water!

My faves make me 10ft tall and bullet-proof.

Favorites:

English ales are my all-time favorites: John Courage, Fuller's ESB, Samuel Smith's Nut Brown Ale, Newcastle. They're so well-balanced between bitterness, sweetness, and fruitiness.

German beers run a close second. So many varieties are avialable: bocks, lagers, pilsners, Weiss beer. My recent favorite is Kostritzer, a black lager!

Belgian beers come in third. Lambics are my favorite after-dinner beers.

But on a hot day I still like an ice-cold Budweiser or PBR.

Did you check out the page? Includes this quote: "I agree with my friend Henk. EKU is the pits. You wouldn't want to pour this piss down the throat of your mother in law. It must have been brewed by Nazis."

Anyway, I'm currently working my way through Michael Jackson's Great Beer Guide, which has a different beer on each of it's 500 pages. It comes highly recommended as it's so clear and concise, and looks like this in the UK but I understand it looks like this: in the US.

Jackson also publishes an excellent guide to Belgian beers. I get little articles from him each month with my belgian beer-of-the-month shipments.

Folks in the Bay Area (and beyond) should watch this space for a Belgian beer tasting party at my place in a few months. I have a huge collection of rare and unusual beers in many styles from Belgium and I'm anxious to share.

Shipwreck, the next Stone Ruination growler fill is April 16th & 17th. The Special growler fill after that is the 2003 Double Bastard Ale on May 7th & 8th (Mother's Day Weekend)! Woo-Hoo, I'm getting my 3 liter filled!
