Those giant 64 ounce bottles bring back fond childhood memories for me. It was an accomplishment to finish one in less than an hour ... and I was all of 115 lbs back then! :woot: :funny: The 16 ouncers
( Pounders in MA speak) had little puzzles inside the cap that were fun to figure out as you got completely annihilated! Little pictures: screw + 'ed = screwed ... stuff like that. I know ... bad example, but I can't remember one of them!

One ol' timer described the flavor to me very well: SKUNK PISS.


I remember those Smitty. We used to call them something similar but the name eludes me. They were especially foul if drunk warm we we did whenever it was offered...hell free beer was free beer!

I also remember picking up two quarts of beer at the corner grocery for 50 cents each. We would each chug our first one just before Saturday Night Live started, just to get in the mood, and then nurse the second quart for the rest of the show. Those were the days of making Foster "oil can" pyramids in your room! :drunk: :partyhat:

However, I respectfully disagree. Shiner Bock is not a bad beer in Texas or elsewhere.
That guy must have been talking about Lone Star beer. I have been to Texas many times.

Picked up a six of railbender last night. Not bad. I'll try another one tonight and see if it grows on me some more.

In general, I do like most of Eire's beers. Heritage Ale is very tasty and Ol' Red is a favorite in a growler. I've had Drake's Gold before as well as Mad Anthony Ale. Would like to try some of their other beers too. Too bad they don't make all of them year round.

Pete's wicked Ale used to be a favorite of mine until more interesting local brews became available.

Are you talking regular grand dads or the bonded variety?

Having my first railbender of the night...starting to grow on me some more... :partyhat:

I just brewed a Barleywine ale, weighs in at about 11%ABV. Nice warm beer for the cold months. Commerially, I think Victory brews some of the more kick you in the ass beers out there. Their Old Horizontal (Old Ho'), Golden Monkey, Storm King Stout, and V-12 all weigh in at or above 10% ABV and will keep you lit during during these short winter days.

Is that a homebrew recipe for Delirium Tremens or the Belgian original? Love the pink elephants on their bottles!

If you want to try a really kick-ass brew that tastes good to boot try some He-brew Jewbulation. It's 13% and tastes wonderful. Also try some Weyerbacher brews. They are uncommonly smooth and tasty considering their strength.

It's a homebrew clone of DT. I've always been impressed by the He-brew beers.

I tried Big Foot tonight. It has been out for a few years anyway. Someone told me about if several years ago but tonight was the first time I saw it on the self where I live. If I had to compare it to something I'd say it is very similiar to Dogfish Head 90 Minute IPA. I think a 4 pack of Dogfish is about the same price as a 6-pack of Big Foot. Hmmmm

Sunday night I had Blue Moon on draft in a restraunt. On draft it is a really good beer. It is better than Blue Moon in the bottle.

I found something new to me yesterday! :D Bard's Sorghum Malt Beer. It's pretty good. :D It got me to wondering what sorghum was. Turns out it is a versitle crop. The grain can be used for ethanol production, animal feed, food or beer. The stalks can be used like sugar cane. This video has nothing to do with beer but it is an education about sugar production from sorghum stalks.

I've had one bottle a few months back and gotta say I enjoyed it too. It was different from any beers I've had. Malty and just a little molasses-sweet with a good bite. Drive across the mid west and you'll spot sorghum growing all over the place. Sorghum also makes it healthier because it's gluten free, a must for Celiacs & those that watch their glycemic index to regulate blood sugars. Probably one of the few beers folks with these conditions can enjoy.

When I worked on a dairy farm, it was grown then freshly chopped and fed to the heard. As I remember, it put a nice green sweetness to the air and the milk cows took too it like candy when we called them in off the pasture. I'm sure I've seen the syrup in the supermarkets either with the cane syrups or in the international food isles.
