I hate the lager :sick:


How long ago did they change to S.S.?

I'll assume it happened long before 94-97 when I was out at college in PA, but I could always taste a difference between Lager I had out there and what I purchased here in NJ. I went so far as to email them many years ago and asked why I couldn't get fresh tasting Lager over here...I don't recall what became of that... :drunk:


They took the copper ones out in 1984 or 85 at the Main Brewery The other two always had S.S.

What? No votes for MEISTER BRAU??? :funny: I think you can buy a keg of that stuff for $4.99! :lol: :D

My favorite beer of all time is Sam Adams Octoberfest -- every year I try to stock up before they stop making it (end of Oct.), but I drink it all before the first week of November! :beer: :cheers:

My go to beer is the Yueng Lager. But I like to try different beers all the time. For Christmas I bought a few cases of Tyskie, a nice Polish Lager at 5.6%, very tasty. I also bought Troegs Dead Reckoning Porter, another tasty brew, brewed in Harrisburg,PA. And also had some Smithwicks Ale,brewed by Guiness in Ireland.Very smooth.

In honor of their 13-11 lead and in hope of a victory over the hated "G-strings", I'm drinking a liter of delicious Ommegang 10th Anniversary "Chocolate Indulgence" 7% ale -- out of my ancient ceremonial Eagles beer glass. :cheers:

Quite comparable to the Young's Double Chocolate I recommended earlier. Plus higher-octane and more of it. :up:

Hey Tully, Stockingfull, and upstate the 13th annual CNY brewfest is at the fairgrounds in syracuse on saturday january 31st. Ill be the big drunk guy there screaming how I love coal heat and fine microbrews. You may find me staring(with my mouth closed though) at some lovely coeds there too. As for my favorite brewery its Middle Ages of course(in syracuse) its 20 minutes from my house. I like all beer...period. I used to love a good easy going Keystone light buzz but now I am back to what we made fun of in high school OLD MILWAUKEE.. but when we go to the brewery I dont mind paying for the good stuff too. I would love to hoist a brew with some fellow coal burners sometime...let me know if your travels bring you to syracuse on a saturday afternoon or something. Oh yeah since were in a recession I blast all my buddies when were out and there buying Blue or Blue light(damn canadian beer) I tell them to drink american damnit... Jim

cheapheat, where the hell ya been?? :woot: Last I remember, weren't you gonna chop the roof off a Taurus or somethin' and get some coal at the June '07 Pottsville meet? :verycool:

OK, Bud, you gotta helluva idea there. And, as it happens, my boy's a frosh goalie on the Syracuse Club hockey team and they have a home game on Fri nite, 1/30, so maybe we'll come up and watch him get splinters at the game, then be ready to toss back some :shots: at the Fairgrounds Saturday, hopefully early enough in the day to get to Middle Ages (or should we do that Fri :gee: ) since I've been wanting to get there too.

Let's see if we can round up the other 'carbon fibers' in the CNY area and have the board's first meet outside PA. :cheers:

Hell, maybe I'll throw in my skis and get a run or two in at Song Mtn on Fri, for old time's sake...

But I have to remember that I've got to do the whole round trip in 35-40 hrs or less, or my fire'll go out! :hangover:

The Europeans (certainly Germans at the top of the heap) and the Chinese actually make the best beers (the chinese use german methods and grow great wheat, rice and hops)

Hey Stocking and everyone else, the Taurus 150 is out of action Ive had three vehicle since then one of which was a mercury sable and that would haul 800 lbs of coal no problem.. Back to the beer, Im not sure what middle ages hours will be friday but they will definately be at the show as well as Dog fish Head and most of the others named above. You mean your boy plays for the Crunch? My friends go to those games all the time Im just not into hockey much. Well figure something out Im sure. Jim

A question for you Yuengling fans. After hearing the community here rave about Yuengling I tried my first and I really like it. My question is that the Yuengling eagle on the cap and the Anheuser-Busch eagle look very similar. Is there a connection between A-B and Yuengling or just coincidence
