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)

Goose Island Green Line was great, but once they sold to InBev I quit buying it.

PBR is my go-to easy drinking beer. Hopefully when I move I can find a store in Louisiana that sells it--not sure how far out of the midwest it's gotten.

+1 for the Malbec recommendation. Also, Spanish reds like tempranillo and granache and blends of those are pretty good.

My favorites are Three Floyds and Half Acre. Half Acre does some really amazing collaborations and stuff. I'm bummed I missed out on Sticky Fat although I'm going to a beer/food pairing at Uncommon Ground next week and they're supposed to have it.
Yeah, I had been drinking, and mistyped. Half Acre is great. Which Uncommon Ground? I live by the one on Devon.

You know RGNY, I love old Burgundys. Petrus, Chateau Rothschild, Chateau Lafitte, J.L. Chave... But honestly, my favorite wines come from America. I know exactly how you feel.

We are neighbors. I live about 1.5 miles west of the one on Devon. This is the event I'm going to next week.

Because I'm poor (and cheap) it's usually whatever beer is cheapest at the local skeevy liquor store. That usually rotates between PBR, Tecate, and on the rare occasion - Modelo.


For special occasions, or around Christmas bonus time, I usually splurge on craft beer. I live right down the street (literally) from Metropolitan brewery, so that's pretty cool. If anyone is in the midwest, I highly recommend you check out New Holland Brewing Company's stuff. Their stuff is fairly easy to find in Chicago, and I visit the motherland (holland, mi) at least 4 times a year for the good stuff. Very ambitious offerings.

Kaz, I'm by Bananas Foster, if you know where that is. Granville red line. I'd love to go to that dinner, but unemployed guys can't afford that, and even if we could, I wouldn't go solo. My wife is a vegetarian and doesn't drink, and the only person I know that would go is working.

Edgewaterdude, Dragon's Milk is one of the best beers I've ever had. I second the New Holland love.

Is there anything similar to the Leinenkugel but better? Tryna develop my beer palette.
I don't know about the Leine Oktober, but regular Leines are a nice, light wheat beer from what I remember. Widmer Hefs are one of my favorites that is commonly available. I'd definitely give a Hoegaarden a try sometime as well, although they can be a bit pricey. Some wheat beers are like drinking a glass of bread.

I hope you guys talking about milk are somewhat kidding. I'm not Mr. Anti-milk (well, actually I guess I am) and this is not the place to get into it, but there are more reasons not to drink milk than to drink it.

just feel lucky you can drink a glass of milk knowing you're not gonna be bloated like a balloon for the next 5 hours, followed by mudbutt for another 5 hours. sigh, the suckiness that is being lactose intolerant.

I know this one.

I used to down milk all day long, and then when I got to college the freaking dorm rooms and their never ending supply of Coke got to me. Now I'm seriously afraid to drink even two sips of milk.
