So this time instead of just mentioning what you're drinking, let's talk about why we're drinking it.

I'm having Shock Top: Raspberry Wheat. It tastes like your usual wheat beer, but has a raspberry aftertaste. It's not present in the foreground taste. It's a nice aroma.

Does it come with a straw, a cherry on a toothpick and a teeny umbrella?

Grey Goose & club soda. Normally I never buy Grey Goose, but this was a gift from a friend.

my only issue with shock top is that its a Budweiser ( right? or coors but i think bud ) product where they pretend that its not and pretend that its a "craft beer". which its actually not.

i prefer honesty in my alchoholic beverages :lol:

i was drinking a Sublimely Two-hearted ( Trademark owned by me ).

half a pint of Bells Two Hearted topped with a half pint of Stone's Sublimely Self-Righteous.

two hearted is a hefferviesen or at least something like it. and self righteous is hardcore. so the two hearted cuts the bitterness and adds some sweetness balancing the pint gloriously.

it fucking good.... and like 9%+ ABV

Try mixing it with a stout. Pretty good if you get the right pair and mix.

Earlier this week

Bell's Two Hearted Ale - Not bad. It reminded me of expecting and orange but taking a bite of grapefruit.

Bell's Brown Ale - Ok. It would be a good standby beer if it were more readily available.

Raspberry Stout?! You, sir, are a genius.



Also, this one for BoneKracker. It is one of my favorite beers, but I haven't had one in a while:

Old Rasputin Imperial Russian Stout

Try mixing coffee, tea and beer into one beverage. Optionally add vodka and redbull.

To paraphrase Dennis Leary, what's wrong with beer flavoured beer? All these flavoured beers for the sensitive palate lead me to believe that beer drinking isn't for those that drink them.

There are those who drink to get drunk, or just be a general ass. For those who aren't neanderthals, we don't live in communist Russia and enjoy more than one thing. Do you eat only one kind of meal all the time? Or only one kind of carbonated beverage, or other non-beer alcohol?

if you can find Brother Thelonious on tap, highly recommended. Bottled is not bad either.

All beer is flavoured - go back long enough and hops were, well odd.

Although, I've never taken to fruity ale myself.

I only drink carbonated water
I never mix cheeseburgers and pizza
I don't drink fruity beer

Just finished a four pack. Was a bit disappointed. Not nearly as good their other faux-belgian (felgian?) beer, Pranqster.

It is belgian style, with fairly high alcohol content, but it doesn't have the strong alcohol flavor that you often get with Belgians (particularly bad ones). Instead, it has a very clean, easy to drink taste. It is one of my favorite beers.

Felgian... isn't that that thing unicorns do to centaurs?
