Singlespeed & Fixed Gear "I still feel that variable gears are only for people over forty-five. Isn't it better to triumph by the strength of your muscles than by the artifice of a derailer? We are getting soft...As for me, give me a fixed gear!"-- Henri Desgrange (31 January 1865 - 16 August 1940)

What are you drinking?

The incendiary "I'd been drinking..." thread awhile back got me thinking:

Just what IS everyone drinking?

When I can afford it, I prefer:
BEER: Lagunitas IPA, or anything with mass hops and a high alc.%
WINE: Black Mountain, just cuz the name is badass
BOOZE: some good Scotch, like Laphroig, it's like a peat fire in yer mouth

When I'm broke:
BEER: Ballantine's 40s
WINE: Charles Shaw, what else? Carlo Ross, I guess...
BOOZE: White Horse Scotch

Bottoms up!

Tecate. (but too lazy to throw in a twist of lime).

I like a lot of hops myself. If I have the dough I generally go for a good stout, brown ale, or barley wine. I just had a Goose Island IPA which was alright, but I like their Oatmeal Stout a lot more. Left Hand makes a wicked good Milk Stout, and Sammy Smith's Oatmeal Stout is heaven. As far as barley wines go I really like Old Guardian, which is Stone's. There's another one I tried recently that I liked a lot too, but I can't recall the name. For brown ale Brooklyn Brewery is pretty good, but there are a lot more. I just learned that Brooklyn Brewery is 100% solar powered too. I think that is really cool.

If I'm short on cash or I want quantity over quality I'll usually go for Pabst, Milwaukee's Best Ice, or some gin and tonic with lime.

sierra nevada's ipa is better than goose island's. IMO. a local bar has Centennial IPA on tap, which is really good. also 750 mL bottles of Affligem that are ~8%. the $/alc ratio is about the same as PBR.

i used to drink pbr, but then i figured out i can get the same pint with twice as much alcohol for twice the price and get twice the taste. SCORE!!

Oooh ooh, I almost forgot about that Gonzo Imperial Stout that Flying Dog has (or was that just a one time thing in memory of Hunter S.). Speaking of dogs, Old Leghumper is pretty good too.

brooklyn is not bad but they support a proposal to build a stadium in the middle of brooklyn which is not cool with lots of people who leave here.
I drink(right now) 1 pint 8oz heinekens and becks from a deli downsairs for $2.50.Since 1991 that price went up from $2.25. Damn inflation
best ever is pilsner urquell.

in general:

beer: belgian, english, american, german (though i had a very good polish beer with dinner)

wine: french, spanish, italian (lots of leeway here too, but that's the gist)

in the fridge:

la fin du monde

maudite

Ommegang Hennepin belgian ale (this is in my fridge 100% of the time, partly because it's so damn good, and partly because it's at C-Town across the street)

St. Peter's english ale

brooklyn pilsener

and currently drinking: St. Peter's golden ale. it's fantastic.

I'm sorry, but that is a REALLY disturbing picture. Look like a bunch of "funboys" who shoud "get a room." (beeeeep, cybertron)

I drink a lot of PBR and MGD. When I go to bars I drink Guiness.
When I drink wine I buy the second cheapest bottle, or I rock the Rossi-posse.
Liquor is nasty most times, but I have been known to enjoy some very high-end russian vodka.
