Title: Bar's open! What'll you have...?
Post by: JediMAC on April 10, 2003, 10:19 PM
It's come to my attention that a certain lady 'round here is in need of some liquid refreshment of the free (and beer) variety, so I figured I'd jump back here behind the JediDefender bar and open this bad boy up and get the party started!  So what'll you have?  Pick your poison!  I hope no one minds if I enjoy a nice stogie while I tend the bar.  MMMmmm...

Hopefully someone can entice Beedo to stop by soon though, as he's a much better bartender and drink mixer than I am!  Those Devil Dogs he makes are to die for!  Nigel... you out there?  Don't make me do it alone here buddy.  Our members here deserve better than me!

Carrie, what kinda beer can I get you?  A Newcastle?   8)

Matt, you smoking that happy stuff again?
Title: Re: Bar's open! What'll you have...?
Post by: Carrie M on April 11, 2003, 01:23 AM
Matt, I would love a FREE Newcastle, thank you very much.  :) And don't shortchange yourself, I'm sure you'll do very well at removing the bottlecap.
Title: Re: Bar's open! What'll you have...?

Matt, you smoking that happy stuff again?

Nah, just a nice cigar.  Nothin' special....  What can I get ya' Chris?   :)

Carrie, I think I need your assistance with this Newcastle here...  Is this damned bottlecap a twist off, or are my hands getting all bloody for no good reason whatsoever...?   :-\

Ah Matt,
 I have been waiting to break out a few new stogies myself. I am a connoisseur in the making with a fine cigar. I will bring over an extra Arturo for ya, but while you are behind the bar grab me a cold guniess draft.  All the talk about those yesterday made me thirsty.

Post by: DSJ™ on April 11, 2003, 09:30 AM
Matt, make that 2 Guinness's. Wayne, would it be OK to have a fine cigar?
I have not had one in awhile & it will keep me off the cigarettes for abit.
I hope more people show up so we can make a toast to the JediDefender's bar, were its a place that everyone knows your name.  ;)

Well since theres more cigar smokers here I will just leave the humidor on the bar, help yourselves. we can switch off restocking it.

Post by: Mikey D on April 11, 2003, 10:10 AM
You know its 10 am on a Friday, its the home opener for the BoSox, so its the perfect time to start drinking.  Matt, better make it a triple shot of Guiness.

And thank you Wayne for the stogie

 ;D :D :) 8)

Guinness all around!!!  In fact I enjoyed two last night.  I cannot believe how awesome the stuff actually is.  Nectar of the Gods perhaps.

Tonight please mix me up a Whiskey on the rocks please, a nice Canadian blend please...
Title: Re: Bar's open! What'll you have...?
Post by: Carrie M on April 11, 2003, 10:40 PM
Tonight, I want a fun Rum thing, with pineapple juice and Midori. Can you handle that Matt? Oh, forget it. (barges way behind bar to make her damn self).

Pass the knife and fork, I'll have a Guiness too.


Failing that, a nice rusty nail with a beer (any Steinlager floating around these parts?) will do.
Title: Re: Bar's open! What'll you have...?
Post by: JediMAC on April 12, 2003, 04:37 AM
Alright folks, this isn't funny anymore.  Someone's gonna have to make a serious Guinness run here pretty soon, 'cause I'm just about out!  Brent, you're going to have to stick with the Rusty Nails for a while, 'til we can restock on the Guinness.  Brad, uh...  sorry, but I'm gonna have to see some valid I.D. from you, my friend.  I've heard rumors that you're not even half of Brent's age...   ;)

And did anyone mess with my stuff back here behind the bar?  There seems to be a few bottles out of order, and as you all know, I'm a stickler for order!  I'm gonna have to keep my eyes on you guys...

Keep the stogies comin' Wayne!  I'd also like to make a request to everbody here...  I'm glad to see you're enjoying the bowls of peanuts and pretzels so much, but please don't spill them all over the bar.  Did I mention I'm a stickler for tidiness too?  Thanks!  Now if I can just remember how Beedo used to make those Devil Dogs, I'll be in business!  Carrie - any recollection?  You were there...

Get the bar open early today, got a lot of sports to watch today for those who enjoy those, Playoff hockey, Busch racing, basketball, baseball and even NFL Europe football.
And for those who don't like sports we will have other entertainment.

 OK I made the run for Guinness run. A few cases should hold everyone for a bit ;) And open a window all the cigar smoke is clouding the room.

Okay, like what? Are we talking trained animals, or strippers (is there a difference)?


Matt, here is Beedo's recipe for Devil Dogs, which I found with a little search over at Rebelscum:

THE DEVIL DOG
So called because it's black, with a vague hint of red, and if you try to walk home after drinking it, chances are you'll be found in a ditch. This recipe serves 2-4 people. If you drink it all yourself, it serves you right.  

1 measure each:
light rum
clear vermouth
plain vodka (as in, not flavoured)
gin
Ribena or similar blackcurrant juice concentrate
Kahlua

1.5 measures each:
lovage
shrub
(Both are herby, mildly alcoholic cordials that vastly improve the flavour of anything to which you add them.)

2-3 drops black food colouring
1-2 teaspoons chartreuse (optional)

Mix the ingredients together, then pour over ice into 2 - 4 glasses. Garnish with mint or parsley if desired, for that found-face-down-in-a-country-hedgerow effect. Drink slowly, unless you want to hear your liver scream obscenities at you.

Title: Re: Bar's open! What'll you have...?
Post by: DSJ™ on April 12, 2003, 08:06 PM
I think I will stick with another Guinness. That Devil Dog recipe sound like a  Pan Galactic Gargle Blaster. Though tempting, I should drink it closer to home, providing I make it make far.  (http://www.snowtroopers.ca/images/faintthud.gif) ;D

Is that old Juke Box in the corner wired for sound & if so, any requests for tunes?
Title: Re: Bar's open! What'll you have...?

OK its after noon and I just got a second job so I guess its cause for celebration. I get to have a little spending money again for my SW pursuits. ;)

 Hey Bartender pour me a Jack and Coke. And while your back there turn the jukebox up. Get these others a drink to. On me

Don't mix your drinking too much Scott. Remember, it's like having shooters on the side. Too many & mixing =  (http://adwoff.com/ubb/graemlins/bigbarf.gif)   ;D

Oh I have another cool beer. Hey, anyone up for a game of pool?

Been there, done that.  (more times than I care to remember)

FX, you'll have to be a little more specific with your beer order there, or I'll just wind up sliding you one of the cheap, nasty Meister Chows from the fridge out back in the garage...  So what'll it be?   :)

Dale, I'd be more than happy to kick your Canadian butt in a game (or ten) of pool!   :-*  What'll it be - 8 ball, 9 ball...?  BTW, did you bring a pool table with you?  Otherwise, we might have to stick with the foosball table over there in the corner...

Anyone else care for one of Beedo's famed Devil Dog's?  It's definitely got some bite to it!   :o  Not for the beginners, to be sure!

Now if Scott would kindly stop playing (and dancing around to) Barry Manilow's Copacabana on the jukebox, I could really go for some Simon and Garfunkel while I mellow out with another of the Sarge's fine cigars, and a nice brandy...   8)

Post by: Carrie M on April 15, 2003, 09:54 PM
I brought a case of Pilsner Urquell with me tonight for everyone to try that hasn't already. Gotta love a good Czech beer. I know I do.  :)
Title: Re: Bar's open! What'll you have...?
Post by: DSJ™ on April 15, 2003, 11:33 PM
I thought the pool table was in the back room! I guess that were the washrooms are.  ;D
Good thing I always carry a mini pool table.  :P

(http://www.paramountzone.com/Executive/A18bB.jpg)

Or we could play foosball. Been awhile since I played so I maybe rusty.

May I have one of those Pilsner beer's Carrie? It may help my game. I will buy you a drink of your choice when you are ready.  :)

Well I think its time I step up to ye ol' preverbial bar and have myself a few drinks...

Lets start it off with about 5 pints of Guiness on tap, room temperature. Some Crown Royal sounds nice right about now as well. And I think I'll finish the night off with some Saki bombers

OK, Put me down for $1000. on  :-X for the win.  ;D

I'll have a Cognac. What brand do we have in this joint? Courvoisier, Hennessy? Heck what ever is available. I'm buying a round.

Hey, who let those 2 guys in here?

Oh my services are distinctly designed just to irritate JediMac.  If that means cheering on OCB and inciting a fight, I am so there for you.  Maybe we could do a tag team thing.  Scott and I versus Matt and Angry Ewok.  He seems to dislike me now too ;)

If you need other services, please, let me know.  I live to serve.

Post by: JediMAC on April 17, 2003, 07:09 PM
Alright...  First things first - Heiny's for Matthew and Mike, comin' up!

FX, sorry buddy, but the JD bar here is quite upscale and sophisticated - we don't have any of that cheap Budweiser crap here.  You'll find a few Meister Chows out back in a fridge in the garage though, if that'll suit you.   :-\   Help yourself...

Now to the matter at hand:  We have to figure out where we're actually going to host this mud brawl between Bulky Sweater "Hollywood" Matt and the Minnesota Maniac...  Here at the bar, or over in the fight thread?  Don't matter to me really.  All the crazy drunk fans are already in here, so maybe that would help...  Dunno.

Looks like Carrie's ready to host the match, Adam's ready to call the match, Scott's still goofing around swinging at nothing but air (which is all he'll be hitting when he gets into the ring for real) and pounding shots (which will help to numb his pain), Brent's being his usual annoying, pestering , irritating, aggitating self  :P, Dale's wisely preparing to reap the rewards of OCB's impending annihilation, and I'm just kickin' back with my cigar and brandy watching this whole 3-ring circus here unfold - as calm and focused as Kobe in the final 30 seconds of a close game...   8)

I'll have to politely decline any offers for a tag team match this time around though.  Scott's mine, and mine alone!   :-*

AHH Its friday(and payday) the weekend is about upon us. Lets all break out our favorite drink and enjoy. Hopefully mother nature will cooperate and spring will actually start and the grills can roll out. The bar needs a spring cookout. After all no heavy boozing on an empty stomache :P


 Meanwhile I will take a Froack(?) ale to tide me over. Haven't had one since last summer.


 Also someone get that dancing chicken off the pool table.

Ain't love a b***h, Carrie?  That's a bummer your man's so far away.  So you're in ChiTown, remind me how far away is he again?  I want to say Colorado or somewhere near there...

I'll have whatever you're having.  Better to drink with friends when you're down - though a whole case might be a bit too much.  But we'll play it by ear...   :'(

So do you have plans to move out to be with your fella sometime soon?  I'd guess yes based on your location blurb in your profile here.  If so, just try to keep that happy thought in mind right now!   :)

Ah, thanks luv.  :)

He lives in Rhode Island, and I will be moving there to be with him in a few months. It's just going to be really hard until then, and there's no way to quell the lonliness in between visits, with the exception of phone calls. The calls help I guess, but it's just not the same.  We wait with such anticipation to see eachother, and after it's all over, it's just really crushing to have to let go.  It'll be worth all this when it's all said and done and I'm living in RI, I just have my moments of weakness (translate= whiny-ness). And for those moments, we have alcohol.

Cheers, Matt.  ;)

Colorado... Rhode Island...  I was pretty close there, eh?!   ;D  Not sure where I got that idea from.  Well, 2 months ain't too bad in the grand scheme of things really Carrie.  Just hang in there and try to keep yourself real busy in the interim - that's the best way to keep your mind off of it!

But I know it's especially hard parting ways when you just got together with someone for a number of days and regained that oh so comfortable and happy feeling to be in each other's company again.

It's tough for me just to spend a weekend with some of my old college buddies sometimes (and my wife's the same way with her friends) - the guys I used to spend every single day with for years back in school, but now just get to see for a couple days every year or two.  Getting together again with them is so great, and it so feels like old times - like we were never even apart.  But then when it comes to an end, you feel like you just smashed your thrilling car ride into a wall at full speed, and then you're left with a totally sad and lonely feeling for a while - and the good times are immediately gone, left only with memories again...   :'(

I better stop now before I start crying like this graemlin!  My point is, it's always hard those first several days after you've gotten together with a loved one or very good friend.  Hang in there - it'll get better.  And keep yourself busy!

And drink this smooth shot of Southern Comfort with me to ease the pain!   :)

Dang, Rhode Island.  Hmm, lots 'o boxes round here with Star Wars and RI stamped on them.  Nice for your collection, better for your sanity.  Hang in there.  

That's the cool thing about being married.  No matter how much I drive Mrs. Bug nuts, she still likes to have me around.  And vice versa.  Lots of things are taken for granted, but better that than to be apart (yeah, I know, I'm not helping, but something for you to look forward too).

Thanks guys, I appreciate the kind words. Matt, it may actually be several months before I move to RI (looks like 3-5 months right now). I'm in love, I can't help but think about him. So, I have to just deal with it knowing that the end result will be very worth it. I will continue to cry when I need to, and yes, drink occasionally.  :)

Oh, and would anyone like to help me move?

Anyone?

Come on, I don't have that much furniture.

Carrie, if you pay for my plane ticket, I'd be there in a minute!  I'd even drag my wife along to help out!  Moving always sucks, but add a little pizza and beer and usually that's enough to entice all of your friends to help out!  Wish I could pitch in.  So you're just moving across town right, not too far?

Already had way too many Sam Adams tonight just watching the Lakers game, so I probably won't be much good come Saturday morning anyways!

Good luck, and don't forget to lift with your LEGS, and NOT with your back!   :-*

Well, I'm all moved in and now I'm surrounded by unpacked boxes.... eek. I've unpacked some, but it seems like a dent hasn't even been made. Everything went pretty smoothly, except with my computer.  I almost didn't have internet when there was a problem with Windows, and THEN a problem getting onling with the new cable modem. Anyway, I'm here, and I'm okay.  :-*

I've had a couple of Tyskie beers tonight (I live in a neighborhood very heavily populated with Polish people, so there's a  lot of good Polish beer to be had around here).

Cheers from the Northwest side of Chicago, everyone!

Agreed, cans rule. BUT, I'd take a Murphy's over a Guinness anyday (please nobody hurt me for saying that).  :-*
Title: Re: Bar's open! What'll you have...?
Post by: Nicklab on May 7, 2003, 12:01 AM
Murphy's is definitely a little less bitter than Guiness.  I can understand why one would like it.  But I've gotten so used to Guiness that I don't find it bitter at all anymore.

I don't mind the pub draft in a can.  But I'd really rather have draft from a tap.  Call me a purist.  And there's just an art to pouring a pint, and leacing that little shamrock in the foam.

Another of my favorites (along with Beedo :'() is the good ole Woodchuck Cider which now makes Pear and Raspberry flavors.

I'll never forget my last week of College when I discovered the fruity goodness of the Granny Smith variety...Barkeep, send me down a nice one  :P

Carrie, I haven't tried the Spring Ale I don't think.  I love the Sam's Cherry Wheat though, a great beer.


Silly Sidebar:  If I ever make that first million and can retire early, I am going to go back to school and get my Brewmasters degree and open a Microbrew/Resteraunt.  Lifelong dream, silly, sappy and sentimental but I would love to do it some day :'(

Ug.  Coolers.  Not good.  Not bad in the general sense, but...

Shortly after I returned from Australia, I went out with a bunch of buddies to a local watering hole.  They had a contest running in which you got a coaster for each drink you consumed.  At the end of the night, they auctioned off a $50 gift certificate.  Well, the auction started reasonably with tables bidding 1, 2, 4, 8 and so on.  Our first and final bid (there were six of us) was 74!  It came out sounding more like thefty whore, but they counted them up anyway.  

Problem was, you were supposed to take the GC, go home and come back another time.  Being marginally loaded ::) and freshly back from Aus, my buddies cooked up a story about me being from there and this was my last night in Canada.  They relented and let us use the GC.  What did we order?  Triple Gin and wildberry coolers.  we used the wildberry coolers as mix for the gin.   :-\

Me no like coolers.
Title: Re: Bar's open! What'll you have...?
Post by: Reconsgt on May 9, 2003, 09:23 AM
Most wine coolers give me heart burn. I usually stay away from them, But I will take a good hard cider when I can. I used to buy woodpecker until they stopped selling it around here, now its woodchuck when I am in the mood for one. There is always homemade cider as well.

 I will have to give the Murphys a try. As for bitter with Guinness, I guess I don't really notice it anymore. I will also take a good ale anyday. Like Scott said (I beleive he said it) Summer time is great for micro brews to crank out some special blends. Good beer cigar and a fire in the back yard. Summer will be enjoyable

 Marinate flank steak in Guinness overnight and grill to medium rare or desired temp.

 saute onions until carmalized
 
 place on a baguette and top with Boursin cheese and onions

 I have no idea what Boursin cheese is but the pic looks very tasty

One of the first signs of being an alcoholic is setting time parameters around when you can drink.  I kid you not, it's in the AA list.  

Besides, that's what light beers are for.  Up north we call them 'breakfast beer' ;)

Well, we didn't go to Friday's (or as Virex referred to it, Chotchkie's- an Office Space reference), we opted for the Cheesecake Factory instead, which was a wise decision. The drinks and food were amazing. Just amazing. The Junebug at Friday's has Midori melon liqueur, pineapple juice, and I'm not sure what else, but it's damn good.

The drinks at the Cheescake Factory are VERY good!  But it's still a little too early here in New Jersey for a little drinky-drinky.  And I've still got work to do.

Right now, I would normally opt for coffee.  But since I gave up caffeine, that's kind of pointless.  Think I might get a refreshing lemonade right now.

Ah, you reminded me of what part of the dark ages we were in for the longest time.  Beer and liquor stores, as well as bars, were closed Sundays up until about two years ago.  Only place you could drink was in a restaurant or at a sporting event (football, baseball, hockey, horse racing).  Used to be pretty funny to see the lineups at 1:55 am at the beer stores on Saturday night.  Bunch a drunks making darn sure they had more for the next day.  :D

Now now don't get to hard on us midwesterners, here in WI it has been 2AM boozing ever since I can remember. You want to see backwards drinking take a look down south to the dry counties and no booze sundays. What would a football game be without a little alcohol haze ;)   and for a disclaimer not all  southerners are not backwards just the booze policy.

I was talking to my cousin's husband, and he's from Alabama.  He went to Auburn, and was always a fan of Auburn football.  He told me that the tailgating for the Auburn-Alabama game starts on tuesday for a saturday game.  And he said they start REAL early!  The funny thing is, he said they all would try to sober up by sunday morning, so they could go to church!

MAn to be college age again. I think if I started on a tuesday for a saturday game nowadays it would kill me (or I would wish I was dead)

 I did catch an Alabama game when I was down south. It was a lot of fun. It was the only other college game I saw besides the Badgers up here.

don't you just love that? i had a guy last week who "couldn't wait any longer" to hear from me about the shipping cost for his item, so he sent me an extra dollar to cover shipping for his figure. A DOLLAR. ONE... $1. mind you, i emailed him about 16 hours after the auction ended (which was around 1am my time), and he told me he got tired of waiting and had already sent out payment. tired of waiting? i was like, "you've got to be kidding me!!"

Hmmm... sounds interesting.  I had my first Red Bull today, I just had to find out what all of the hype was about.  Not bad, but had a bit of a medicated taste to it - I can see the Vodka helping with that!   ;) 

Always keep your booze in the freezer, you never know when you'll need it.  My Crown Royal Rye lives there too.   :)

EXACTLY!!!

And that's why I choose Grey Goose above all others, 'cause it's got a sweet taste to it... it's awesome. Try it, you won't be disappointed. I drank about 6 of those tonight, along with another 8 - 10 Amstel Light bottles (my current beer of choice)  ;D

It's actually a French Vodka (yeah, I know.... **** the Frenchies, right? Well, the  Vodka is awesome). The best Vodka I've ever tasted, to be honest. If you're into Vodka, it's up near the top, at least in my opinion. A bit on the expensive side, tho... a liter cost me almost $40, and only last me like 2 days :(

But, damn, it's delicious. And it's kinda crazy, with the whole Red Bull thing going on, I get drunk, but I'm wired at the same time  :P

Crown Royal, proudly distilled in Manitoba and only in Manitoba.  

Grey Goose is available, but I'd be surprised to see it in Kindersley.  Might have to check Saskatoon.  Probably run you $40-50 CAD for 750 mL.  It is nice, but I have no great love of Vodka.  I think grade 9 killed that.  Maybe grade 10.  Grade 10 definitely killed rye.  

I like beer.  Beer likes me.  It's a nice relationship.   Urp.

They were in HUGE pint glasses- I had one and was drunk... my second just kicked that up a notch... but the butt-grabbing was before I had any, so I can't blame it on that, I was just in a good mood before the drinks- which just makes the alcohol so much more effective...

Mmmm... had a good evening hanging out with my next door neighbour - he introduced me to Vodka and Coke.  I always thought it sounded liek a weired combination, but this has just become one of my favourites.  I'mm gonna sleep good tonite.   :)  :D

Now just substitute the Coke with Red Bull and you'll be all set. And how many did you drink Jesse?? I'd hate to have tried to speak to you, after seeing you type lke that  :P

That mead you're all talking about reminds me of some crazy **** I drank a couple weeks ago- absinthe.

I think it was bootlegged, because I don't see how one can get absinthe into Iowa.

It tasted terrible. And the X-Box controller on the floor started talking to me about it's day.

So that's it for my first and last experience with absinthe.

BTW- jokabofe has the greatest avatar ever. :D

You can actually order Absinthe in small quantities from places overseas.

Yep. That was the almighty Absinthe. I've tasted it on a few occasions, and while I'm not the biggest fan of the taste, it's not bad when mixed properly. And the results are awesome (as it looks like you found out already).

Dang, reading this thread makes me thirsty! And it's only 10 am here.

Don't drink much of anything other than water now that I've gotta stay sharp watching the 15-month old and the 36-weeks prego wife. Now and then when we visit the mother-in-law, she'll break out her vice of choice (organic champagne), and I'll have a small glass of that, but that's been it for at least a couple years.

Before that, a nice Kentucky bourbon and some Coke would hit the spot on occasion. It's gotta be Kentucky, not Tennessee...there's a distinct difference. Some smooth and potent Belgian Ale would also hit the spot from time to time. Chimay Blue (9% alc.) is dang good, and the others (Red, 7% or Triple, 8%) aren't too shabby. The U.S. also makes a nice "Belgian Ale" called Ommegang which is nearly as good, but cheaper!!

Okay, hope that got my craving out of my system for at least a little while. :)

Well, did you ever make some of those Vodka/Red Bull's yet Jesse?

I'm hoping really really hard that the hotel bar at C3 stocks Grey Goose and Red Bull, because I've been to several bars in my area that don't. Needless to say, I won't be going back to any of them in the future.

I used to make beer runs into Quebec when I went to school in northern NY.  We would literally cross the border, make a U-turn to go to the Canadian Duty Free store, buy a case of Molson Brador, and go back to campus.  It took all of half an hour.  A thing of beauty!

Yes, just Kahlua and tequila over ice.  In the old days it was called a Brave Bull.  Not a great name, but certainly exceeding anything with cockroach in it.

Still on that Bud Select bandwagon.

I did pick up this stuff in Illinois earlier this month called Michelob Golden Light. It's alright, but I'm sure my piss has a higher alcohol content than that stuff, even though the alcohol content in the beer is higher than what's allowed in Iowa. Bleh. I'll bet the cigarettes are weaker too.

Iowa seems to have some pretty strict liquor laws. You can get Everclear and other hard stuff, but any beer with greater than 2-3% alcohol isn't to be found.

A little off topic, but, when I was younger I lived in Old Town Alexandria.  As luck would have it, my favorite bar/hangout was a block over and up from my townhouse. ;)  After crossing the street at closing time (which was quite a task sometimes :o), all I had to do was keep my left hand on the side of the townhomes/rowhouses and I would find my way home.  My friends and I literally crawled home a couple of times. ;D

I first tried it about a month ago myself. I bought a six-pack last week (the second-most expensive six-pack I've ever purchased, BTW) and drank the whole thing in two nights.

It's great stuff. I notice a slight toffee flavor in it, but then again, I've smoked for years, so that might just be me.

I'd try it in a pub before sinking the money on a six-pack in case you don't like it, though. The stuff was pretty pricey.

That would be Canadian Club rye whiskey for me.  Grade 10.  That's a remarkable 26 years ago and I still won't touch rye.  It made mastering Scotch a challenge too, but it was worth it ;)

Well, it didn't happen the other night, due to some miscalculation on my part, but--oh geez--did it ever happen last night.

And how!

I woke up this morning to find a pile of dirty towels and clothes on the bathroom floor, and had no idea how that stuff got there--until I remembered that--oh yeah--THAT'S WHAT I WAS SLEEPING ON AFTER I WENT TO THE BATHROOM TO PUKE ALL THE RUM AND COKE AND WHISKEY UP BUT NEVER ACTUALLY PUKED IT UP WHICH, I SWEAR, IS A WORSE FEELING THAN ACTUALLY PUKING ITSELF.  And, since I thought at some point I would be puking all that stuff up, and since I was really tired, I apparently piled all the towels and clothes up to use as a pillow while I slept it off on the bathroom floor.

What's really strange, though, is that I have no memory of waking up and getting in my real bed.   :o

Oh, and I also apparently logged in here at some point and changed my name.

Drinking is fun.

Mmm, beer.

Thought I'd join in on a topic that I know I will visit many times in the future.
There are many levels of imbibers.
Most people consider themselves "casual drinkers".
Then there's that dreaded "a" word at the other end of the spectrum.
I like to consider myself a "professional drinker"... somewhere in the middle.
Though I don't actually get paid for drinking... I could and would!  ;)

Tonight's beverage of choice for me is...

I learned my lesson last time I bought a sixer of Stella... there weren't enough!
So, today I bought a twelver... and I'm now on #5!

I've been working in Iceland for nearly a week now.
I've been trying all of their local brews and this is by far their best for daily consumption...

(http://www.randburg.is/is/viking/images/viking01.jpg)

I have put away quite a few these since arriving the beginning of last week. These babies are $11 apiece in a bar! Even if you buy a six pack at a store they are $3 apiece.
That's not just this brand... that's ALL beer here! I'm going broke!  :)

Another good one I've tried here...

I actually had something new tonight that relates to this. I had a bottle of Guinness Draught and it was suggested to me to get a shot of Dr. McGullicuddy's vanilla. What you do is put a bit of the vanilla in your mouth, don't swallow, then take a pull of Guinness and swish it around in your mouth as if you were tasting wine, then swallow.

It's pretty sweet, but not bad. Nothing I'd do again, though.

Then I saw someone dump the vanilla into the bottle and drink it that way.  I thought it was a waste of Guinness.

In keeping with the holiday theme, I fondly remember my mother's homemade egg nog she'd make every year for us (when we were old enough, of course ;)). It was her own recipe, but basically the same as all the others (except it seemed like she added enough bourbon and brandy to choke a rhino), mixing cream, eggs, sugar and liquor into a slurry of holiday heaven. It was the best alcoholic beverage I've ever had. I miss your egg nog, Mom, and miss you even more.

Anyone else dare to make their own nog?

Delicious!

It's St. Patrick's Day, so what better way to celebrate the life and death of the patron saint of Ireland than by drinking a ****load of beer?

I'm headed to an Irish beer-tasting event here at 1 PM, followed by a gathering of family members, most of whom are of Irish descent. We're going to sit around a long table and make fun of each other, again while drinking. After that, it will likely be a smaller gathering of people, staying up until 2 AM drinking some Guinness Extra Stout, since that's what everyone is supposed to bring to this thing.

You know it's going to be a good holiday when you don't know where you're going to sleep for the night.  ;D

"Samuel Adams Cherry Wheat® follows the centuries old American tradition of brewing beer with native ingredients, in this case Michigan cherries as well as a touch of honey. The sweet fruitiness of the cherries is balanced against the crisp, cereal note from the malted wheat and the subtle citrus flavor from the Noble hops. The end result is a sweet, refreshing beer that is light on the palate but long on complexity."

At present I can't discern the honey, but darned if I can't taste the cherries. Light and very refreshing, without being weak or watery. Definitely hits the spot.

Unlikely. I'd like to travel somewhere, with somebody, but where and with whom is still way up in the air.

2 of the 3 of us are now US-legal (instead of 0/3 last summer) so part of the urgency for going northward has dissipated. ;)

I started in on Blue Moon back in 2005 when I was down at Purdue University.  There's a local company now brewing something very similar, so it's no stretch to get it.  But I'll probably have too many Blue Moon over the next couple of days and hopefully at least one pumpkin beer.  Maybe I'll get some Frankenberry too so I have the whole Halloween season covered. :-X

Not a beer for sissies.

8.8% ABV.

"This one-of-a-kind brew uses enormous, almost reckless, quantities of Hallertau Mittelfrueh hops, 12 pounds per barrel to be exact, which give the beer an unmatched flavor dimension and complexity.  To put that into perspective, a barrel of Samuel Adams Boston Lager® contains about 1 pound of hops per barrel and ordinary beers contain about 1.5 ounces per barrel."

So I picked up one of the Sam Adams Winter Sampelrs: 2x each of Boston Lager, Old Fezziwig Ale, Cranberry Lambic, Cream Stout, Holiday Porter and Winter Lager. Should be interesting.

So far:

(http://i5.photobucket.com/albums/y151/ValinKenobi/Inebriation/samadams_cranberrylambic.jpg)
"Samuel Adams® Cranberry Lambic is a fruit beer that draws its flavor not just from the cranberries it is brewed with, but also from the unique fermentation character imparted by the rare wild yeast strain. The result is a flavor rich in fruitiness and reminiscent of cranberries and bananas, cloves and nutmeg. The yeast fermentation also will create a slight sourness on the sides of the palate, a signature of the original Lambic style which, with the subtle cereal note from the wheat malt, remind its drinker that, as fruity a beer as this is, it is still a beer."

It's not bad by any means, but I'm not personally fond of this brew. I like cranberries, but not in my beer. I feel like I might just as well have drank this
(http://www.gotbeer.com/content/user_1/mikes-cranberry-logo.gif)
and probably enjoyed it a little more. Still, I can't fault them for attempting it.

Post by: Nathan on November 24, 2007, 08:39 PM
(http://i5.photobucket.com/albums/y151/ValinKenobi/Inebriation/samadams_holidayporter.jpg)

"Introduced as a member of the Winter Classics Mix Pack in 2004, Samuel Adams® Holiday Porter with its rich malt complexity has become a favorite among our winter seasonal brews. In total, five varieties of malted barley are used in the brewing process including a variety of German malt called Carafa®. The Carafa® gives our Holiday Porter its smooth, roasted malt character. Add generous portions of imported hops to the mix and one has a brew that is both robust and high in drinkability."

I like this one much better. Hints of chocolate. Mmm...

(http://i5.photobucket.com/albums/y151/ValinKenobi/Inebriation/samadams_winterlager.jpg)

"The first thing one notices in a Samuel Adams® Winter Lager is its color: the deep brown of winter. Then comes the magical aroma which promises something special on the tongue. The warm aroma of cinnamon and ginger which blends with the roasty sweetness of the malted barley and hint of citrus from the orange peel. And after that first sip the promise is fulfilled. On the palate Samuel Adams® Winter Lager is rich and full bodied, robust and warming, a wonderful way to enjoy the cold evenings that come with this season."

It's decent and the cinnamon and ginger is nice enough, but "robust" and "full-bodied"? Not buying it, sorry. It seems kind of weak actually.

Looks like Jim's batting 1 out of 3 so far, but I'm looking forward to the Cream Stout and Old Fezziwig....

Post by: Nathan on November 28, 2007, 02:14 AM
(http://i5.photobucket.com/albums/y151/ValinKenobi/Inebriation/samadams_creamstout.jpg)

"Samuel Adams® Cream Stout is a true cream stout, balancing body and sweetness with the natural spiciness of grain and hand selected English hops. Our Brewers use generous portions of roasted chocolate and caramel malts as well as unroasted barley to impart a fullness of body, a roasty malt character and rich, creamy head. Its dark mahogany color make it almost as easy on the eyes as it is on the palate."

It's not as "creamy" or as good as Guiness, but still reasonably awesome. No doubt it would have been even better if I hadn't been slugging the scotch beforehand and killed my tastebuds, so it's a good thing I still have one left.

2/4 with just Old Fezzi to go. Well the sixth one is regular Boston Lager and we already know that's good, so I guess it's 3/5.
Title: Re: Bar's open! What'll you have...?
Post by: Morgbug on November 28, 2007, 01:15 PM
I'm not sure that Guiness should really be thought of as creamy, should it?  Most cream ales I've tasted have just about nothing in common with Guiness so I don't know if you're making a fair comparison. 

Man I miss college.
Title: Re: Bar's open! What'll you have...?
Post by: Nathan on December 1, 2007, 10:41 PM
Fair enough, and I will defer to your superior knowledge. ;) I'm still new enough at this that I'm still getting the nomenclature down, and that was the best adjective that came to mind.

I've never had any cream ales, so I was mostly working from the "stout" portion of the name. Guinness--and the few other stouts I've had--have some different texture that this stuff lacks; I think there might be a greater quantity of hops in the Sam Adams. In that case I don't get the addition of "cream" since it doesn't seem to have anything in common with cream ... but like I said, still working on the analysis skills.

Right now I'm on the last new flavor:

(http://i5.photobucket.com/albums/y151/ValinKenobi/Inebriation/samadams_oldfezziwig.jpg)

"Samuel Adams® Old Fezziwig® Ale is the Christmas cookie of beer. Bursting with spices of the season and a remarkably full body, it helps those long winter nights pass much quicker. The full body hits the palate first with a depth of malt character ranging from sweeter toffee and caramel notes to the more dark, roasty chocolate notes. Then come the spices in full force. Cinnamon, ginger and orange peel dance on the tongue bringing with them the celebratory spirit that goes hand in hand with the season."

Overall verdict: the Holiday Porter and Cream Stout were the best, Cranberry Lambic least favorite, and Winter Lager and Old Fezzi somewhere in the middle.

I split a 12 pack of the Winter Sampler the other night with my brother...I've been a huge Cream Stout fan for years so that by far is my favorite.  The other 5 go like this:

Great

#1 Cream Stout
#2 Winter Lager

Good

#3 Holiday Porter
#4 Old Fezziwig's

Vile

#5 Sam Original
#6 Cranberry Lambic

I think Original Sam Adams is one of the worst "beers" out there.  I am not and never will be a fan of the taste of hops.  I really can't stand it but they make other good stuff.  I usually do like fruit flavored beers (SA Cherry Wheat is another one of my favs) but for some reason I just can't get in to the Cranberry.

I checked both liquor stores here and no luck on the Schell's sampler. Turns out the one I had been thinking of was the Summit sampler. It's got 3x each of Winter Ale, India Pale Ale, Extra Pale Ale, and Pilsener (and yes, that's actually how they spell it).

Just finished a Winter Ale. Really good stuff--reminds me of the McEwan's Scotch Ale. I've also tried the India Pale and drinking a Pilsener right now. Not bad, but so far not as good as the Sam Adams Winter Sampler pack.

Yeah, good times.  But just to elaborate, the old man was drunk, whereas the much more youthful JediMAC was only 'buzzed".  But yeah, we sampled far more than a handful of brews last weekend, at more than a handful of fine drinking establishments.  I lost track too, but I know there was a fair amount of Guinness consumed (as always), and then other randoms, from various Sam Adams, to Coronas, to everything in between.  I just wish it hadn't rendered you so completely useless for the majority of Sunday...  :P

Limited time offering and worse yet, they had a "vat accident" so the amount produced is about half of normal.  Had to drive to the other side of town to get it as it only ended up being shipped to the "french" part of town, St. Boniface, for Festival du Voyageur, the largest french winter celebration in Canada outside of the Quebec Winter Carnival. 

Had to spring for four cases just to make them last a while.  It's usually sold through by end of March at the latest and we won't see it again until the following February.

I visited their distillery when I was over there this January. I got to taste-test Jameson, Paddy, Powers (which are two other brands under the Jameson umbrella) along with a Scotch (which was Johnny Walker) and an American whiskey (Jack Daniels). I had never done a side-by-side like that so I didn't realize what a difference there was. The JD is freakin harsh compared to the rest.

Production-wise, the biggest difference is that Irish whiskey is triple-distilled, while Scotch is twice-distilled and American only once ... I'm sure most of you are aware of this but it was news to me. ;)

Fort Collins Big Shot Seasonal Ale

I found this in (for lack of a gentler term) the clearance rack at the liquor store. The stuff is surprisingly awesome and I'm seriously contemplating going back for a few more. It was $1.99 for a 22 oz ... the giant bottle makes me feel kind of hobbit-like. ;)

I've had quite a few new (to me) beers lately.

I discovered last weekend that New Belgium has a summer seasonal called Skinny Dip. It was still August, so I bought it a sixer. I really, really like it, but I haven't had a beer from that company I didn't like. I also found an Octoberfest out already, from Point, so I bought it. It's OK, I'm just not ready for marzen-style stuff yet.

Then, my folks went to Wisconsin over the weekend, and on the way, visited the brewery in New Glarus. I'd never heard of this company before, probably because they don't distribute in Iowa, only distributing in Wisconsin. Anyway, they brought me several beers to try. I had a bottle of something called Spotted Cow. It was just okay, in my mind. I look forward to trying more, and making a trip to Wisconsin before long to try more of what they make.

$30-$50 a bottle depending on where you buy it.

But this is the smoothest stuff you will ever find. No need for licking your hand dumping salt and eating a lemon afterwards. one shot of this has so little of a bite to it that a beer chasser is all you need.

When I was in San Diego last year I meant to grab a bottle of Patron Tequila but totally brain farted.  Of course the difficulty is in taking it back with me, because I have to stop in Minneapolis when flying, so getting it back means packing it.  I'd intended to grab it at the airport, but that makes life difficult with the new liquid restrictions. >:(

Actually I almost got PBR but it cost like an extra thirty cents for the case. :P

Haven't tried Schlitz though--and are you referring to the older formula or the reinstituted "classic" formula?

"Samuel Adams® Cream Stout is a true cream stout, balancing body and sweetness with the natural spiciness of grain and hand selected English hops. Our Brewers use generous portions of roasted chocolate and caramel malts as well as unroasted barley to impart a fullness of body, a roasty malt character and rich, creamy head. Its dark mahogany color make it almost as easy on the eyes as it is on the palate."

It's not as "creamy" or as good as Guiness, but still reasonably awesome. No doubt it would have been even better if I hadn't been slugging the scotch beforehand and killed my tastebuds, so it's a good thing I still have one left.

2/4 with just Old Fezzi to go. Well the sixth one is regular Boston Lager and we already know that's good, so I guess it's 3/5.

I'm going to have to revise my earlier opinion. This stuff is phenomenal. (http://i5.photobucket.com/albums/y151/ValinKenobi/Forums/booyahdance.gif)

You are a Scotch drinker now?  Very cool.  Here is a very dangerous link for you.   (http://www.thewhiskyexchange.com/)  If you ever end up ordering from there, lmk, I'd like to go in with someone as they won't ship to Canada (our laws) :'(

Currently six bottles of Scotch in our house:

Cragganmore is probably my current favorite.  Can't get Cardhu here anymore sadly, though you can order it from that link.  The first two (Glengoyne/Macallan) are both duty free exclusives.  The Johnny's are ok for blends, I typically use the Black for making Rusty Nails (Scotch/Drambuie) and the green was just to try.  I'm not nearly as snobby about blends as a lot of folks but can agree with the statement that single malts are typically better.

Don't own a bottle (yet), but my personal favorite is

I don't mind Glenmorangie at all.  I actually downed a bottle of basic Glenfiddich in record and enjoyable time back in October and found it to be very good for what seems very common around here and reasonably priced. 

I was digging around on the Balvenie website after Scott posted his and they have a Scotch matured in rum kegs I'd like to get my hands on, but too pricey and not to be found around here.  I love me some rum too.

no harm in Glenfidditch....although it's on pretty much every bar around here too, and I'll usually pass it over for a better blended scotch...or sometimes a bourbon.

Not a huge bourbon fan, but I have fallen in love with Woodford Reserve.

The Glenfiddich was from a small local store while I was running a conference and couldn't get away.  It was that or Glenlivet and I have some smaller bottles (15/18 yo) at home so thought I'd try something else.  It's common as dirt but I quite enjoyed it - may have had more to do with a need than any great flavor. 

No love of Bourbon - abused that too much skiing in my late teens and early twenties: two wine skins, one with Bourbon, one with Baby Duck used as a chaser for the Bourbon.  It's a wonder we didn't ski into any trees.  I have a bottle of Jack Daniels that is still sealed and must be nearing 40 years old; it's a pity it doesn't age in the bottle. 

Dale, it's always happy hour somewhere in the world.   ;D  I like the Big Rock stuff for sure but try to stick with the local Fort Garry stuff (which I think Scott will likely come in and claim as Minnesota's  ::)  ;))

Michael Robinson’s Old Ben Ale is a malty English-style brew boasting notes of dried fruit, nut, and caramel. A slight bitterness balances the combination of five malts in this full bodied beer. Light brown with reddish highlights and good clarity, the ingredients of this English-style brew are all American with the exception of the yeast which is distinctively English. Created to enjoy on cold nights or as an after dinner treat, Mike’s Old Ale is 9% alcohol by volume, about twice that of the average beer. An experienced homebrewer, Mike was recognized as a finalist in the 2008 Samuel Adams LongShot American Homebrew Contest, as well as in the 2007 Samuel Adams® Patriot Homebrew Contest.

Ben Miller’s Mile High Barley Wine is a dark red, flavorful brew with rich plum undertones to complement its caramel malt flavor. A self-proclaimed ‘hop head,’ Ben used several varieties of citrusy American hops in this beer, creating its resiny aroma followed by clean bitterness. Ben’s Barleywine is his 100th homebrew, brewed to commemorate two years of enjoying the hobby.

Jeremy White, who works in the IT department at Samuel Adams, channeled his love of Belgian beers to create his Lemon Pepper Saison, a classic Belgian-style brew. Jeremy’s flavorful, refreshing and lighter-bodied beer is brewed with Grains of Paradise, an exotic tropical spice also found in Samuel Adams Summer Ale. The peppery flavor is complemented by a slightly sweet aroma with hints of vanilla and citrus, making this beer the perfect cool down to a hot summer day.

The Eye of the Hawk Select Ale was first released in 1984 - a direct response to customer demand for a wider variety of our traditionally brewed ales. Eye of the Hawk Select Ale is produced year round. Generous amounts of Pale and Caramel malt and our special proprietary yeast strain produce an extremely well balanced ale with an alcohol 8% ABV (alcohol by volume). Eye of the Hawk Select Ale is coppery amber in color and characterized by a luxurious caramel malt flavor, a substantial mouth-feel and a slightly warming yet dry finish. Like all of the ales brewed by MBC, Eye of the Hawk Select Ale is bottle conditioned. Bottle Conditioning is a traditional Old World technique whereby actively fermenting yeast is introduced into the mature beer right before bottling, resulting in the development of natural carbonation and rich flavors in the bottle.

It's that time of year again  ;D

(http://www.winnipegomyheart.com/wp-content/uploads/2009/02/fort-gibraltar-beer-300x225.jpg)

Only brewed locally for the Festival du Voyageur (http://festivalvoyageur.mb.ca/wp/) which I think roughly translates to: **** it, it's cold, let's go play outside and drink lots of beer while we're at it. 


It's again that time again and here's the updated can from last year, being used again this year:

A great many things, or so I've been told.  But most importantly is the fact that my ancestors were thrown out of Scotland many years ago and landed in Ireland.  So basically I get confused between the two  ;)

Nice.  The Talisker in there is a bit of a surprise though; I sure haven't got my palate to that point yet. 

No Glenmorangie?

Nope.  Not the biggest fan of it to be truthful.  Perhaps it's un-Scottish of me to say but I'm not the biggest fan of anything Glen...  That said the image has a 12 and 15 year old Livet, a 14 year old Goyne and a 12 year old Fiddich.  I also squirreled away two bottles of Glenfiddich's Snow Phoenix.  I do have a friend that absolutely loves Glenmorangie so I can drink it at his place. 

Or Johnnie Walker Blue for that matter?

Don't find it worth the money.  We did side by side taste tests years ago with Blue, Gold, Green and Black and while there was a perceptible difference, I simply do not find it different enough from the Gold (or really the Green) to make me drop that kind of money.  The cheapest I've seen it is about $160 a bottle and there are an awful lot of types of Scotch that I can buy for that kind of money.  It's an excellent product to be sure but I think most people buy it to say they have it rather than to drink it.  Or I just don't make enough money. 

Scott, saw your post elsewhere.  If it helps, I'm up to 14 bottles in the house (not including the airplane or other small bottles).  Some are getting quite close to empty.  I'll almost always have a bottle of Black Label around (excellent for rusty nails), a bottle of Cardhu now that it can be found stateside again and a bottle of Cragganmore which is clearly my favorite right now. 

As of the moment though, I'm consuming one of these:

See, I could take or leave most Fiddich as just "blah", and Glen Ord is probably the worst drink...not the worst scotch...the worst drink...I've ever had.  But Glen Morangie...Oh my.  My favorite scotch by far.

Makers is fantastic, and I'd like to try this edition.  For my bourbon money though, I'll put Woodford Reserve up against any high end Scotch any day.

Yeah, not the biggest fan of bourbon either, but up here we get only the basics for the most part: Jack or Jim.  But I will be down in TN in November, so I'm completely open to recommendations.  It would seem somewhat blasphemous to go all the way to Tennessee and bring home a bottle of Scotch.

My wife was nice enough to get me a bottle of this:

To create the perfect taste we let every single drop of our spirits run over the breasts of a special woman, one whose characteristics we saw reflected in the liquor.
 
This sensuality awakens the true character of our brands and gives them an identity, a soul, a spirit, a G-Spirit.

Y'know, I never responded to this but I should have some time ago.  I thought, at the time, I wonder if this isn't a marketing ploy.  Turns out, maybe I was right.  Never did anything to the brand but sure as **** I bought a bottle.  LOL. 

Anyway, sitting around drinking my last can of SurlyFest and also enjoying a lovely glass of Glenfarclas 12 year old and it is spooky smooth.  I swear I could drink this **** for breakfast.  Yum. 

And at the same time as I picked up the Glenfarclas I grabbed me a mini-pack of Glenmorangie.  I thought of you, name, at the time.  So finally there's some Glenmorangie in the house.  It looks something like this:

(https://www.thepartysource.com/express/images/inventory/GLENMORANGIE100ML4PK.jpg)

That said, I've got about 15 bottles of Scotch in the house right now, not including the airplane sized bunch. 

1. Glenfarclas 12 year old
2. Balvenie Caribbean Rum Cask 14 year old (x2)
3. Cardhu 12 y/o
4. Johnnie Walker Black
5. Johnnie Walker Green
6. Macallan 12 y/o
7. Macallan Elegencia 12 y/o
8. Glengoyne 14 y/o
9. Cragganmore 12 y/o
10. Cragganmore Distiller's Edition
11. Glenfiddich Snow Phoenix (x2)
12. Glendronach 15 y/o
13. Caol Ila 12 y/o

And just to show I bear no ill will to the Irish either, I've got a bottle of 16 y/o Old Bushmills.

Listening to Ralfy's vlogs? 

And I'd suggest there's some discrepancy with the pronunciation of Caol Ila.  Brian Cox says "Cool Isle-a" but every pronunciation I've heard from others is "cool eela".  So I'm not entirely certain Mr. Cox is absolutely correct.  It's #13 on the list I last posted (which I've both added to and subtracted from since that post) so I purposely went looking for the pronunciation.

Sure, if you like.  I have way more bottles than that now.

Nice!  I should talk.  I probably have a half a dozen bottles of different types of bourbon in my liquor cabinet right now.

I'm not much for bourbon unfortunately.  A youth wasted with Jim and Jack as shots didn't progress well, something entirely unfair to the good bourbons that are out there.  Same can be said for Canadian rye whisky.  I do however appear to have 44 sealed bottles of Scotch and one lonely bottle of Irish whisky at the moment.  Plus six open bottles of assorted whisky in the house.  I only buy whisky I intend to eventually drink.  On average, I kill about six bottles of Scotch in a year.

I tried it, wasn't bad but a little too sweet for me.
