Tonight, Woodford Reserve.
Fat Tire tonight.
Living high on the hog. ;p
Various forgettable beers at a cook out. Highland Park and Glen Livet oloroso Nadurra when I got back to the house.
Several SA Summer Ales, an Angry Orchard, and sipped some Jameson.
We dined out last night, I had a couple of glasses of Merlot with the meal and a single malt with the coffee. Really enjoyed that.
Oculto, Sol, Heineken cities edition. Finally a Heineken that wasn't skunky tasting---not great but not skunky.
Visiting a former schoolfriend, now resident in Savannah GA, we were reminiscing schooldays, the 'old' country and all, over a very good meal in one of those run down areas that had become gentrified with the injection of speculative cash. The name of the restaurant escapes me now, but the lasting memory was of my, oh so British faux pas of not remembering that Americans like their beer seriously cold.
Invited by my schoolfriend's husband to have a beer with him, I dithered over the choices. Coors, Miller, (pre Miller/Coors merger) Budweiser and those, so called, popular beers were not to my taste but I didn't want to offend. The waitress, probably hearing my English accent, suggested a Heineken. "That would be fine," I told her, adding,"but please don't pre-chill my glass with ice cubes." "YOU LIKE WARM BEER?" came the reply, along with an over acted jaw drop.
At the same time, a kick in the ankle from my wife, told me that we were attracting attention. I smiled at the waitress, pointed to my gums and said, "sensitive gums." "Ah," she said smiling, as if all was forgiven. For the record, warm beer is disgusting, but you don't have to have it so cold that your lips stick to the side of the glass.
For most of those beers you listed, you have to drink them cold or they would not be palatable at all.
Last thing I had to drink was a Red, White, n Blue margarita on the Fourth.
They still taste like The Can.
I'm having Red, White, and Blue tonight...........
The red, white and blue in The Can.
You need one of these:
Tried 'Red Apple Ale'. Not near as good as Angry Orchard, IMO.
I've never liked beer, used to drink whiskey by the pint - these days I don't drink alcohol but I have the occasional San Pellegrino Chinotto.
these days I don't drink alcohol So very sad. Life is over!
Watermelon martini! summertime you know. Or as we say here summertime ya all!
You are as right as rain!
Sipping/guzzling a few Angry Orchards at the moment.
