Currently I'm sipping some Breckenridge Whiskey, which is pretty good for only being aged 2 years (according to the internet, they conveniently leave that information off the bottle), smooth and tastes very strongly of butterscotch. I can't claim to have tried a huge variety yet (drinking in moderation, and on a budget will do that), but some favorites of mine are W.L. Weller, Buffalo Trace, and Elijah Craig.



I was looking at that yesterday- I didn't think there could be any "Bourbon" from anywhere but Kentucky... Sort of like Champagne and the region in France... Or Napa Valley wines from Napa Valley.

So it's very butterscotch-y? I tend to like those after accent tastes- like the Vanilla in Woodford Double Oaked (I refuse to buy Woodford anymore- the TV commercial killed it for me- and the prices went up by half)

I'll have to try this.

Last night I was drinking Palomas. I had 2 on an empty stomach. Not feeling so sharp today. Otherwise, my latest favorite is Pineapple/Coconut Jumex mixed with a little Mango Jumex and Captain's. Fun, fruity and it'll **** your world up.

That includes the 1957 Esquire Magazine Bartender's guide.


We also picked up this nifty 1940s Bakelite bar set, it's really cool.

Unless I'm in the mood to try a new brew (which is pretty often), I reach for this one most of the time.

I like Fat Tire as its all around easy to come by. I like Great Lakes Eliot Ness, The Wright Pils and Dountmunder. I also like Dark Horse Brewing Perkulator from time to time. I like Goose Island 312 but don't wish to support a brewery that sold out to the big boys. There is quite a lot of good beer available here in the South Bend Indiana area.

One nearby LBS, just a couple of blocks from my place, has a Fat Tire neon sign in their front window.

Central City Brewing, a local brewery in Surrey, just south of Vancouver, BC, is a good standby, especially if you like an aggressively hopped 'West Coast' IPA with backbone:


I see lots of love for Unibroue here. Great beers...and being a property of Sapporo (Japan) means good distro.

If I was going to pick a favourite brewery from Québec (having lived in Montréal for 6 years, just across the river from Chambly, where Unibroue has been based since the brewery's founding), I'd pick Dieu du ciel, probably one of the best and most stylistically wide-ranging breweries in North America. Harder to get, though I have seen a limited selection of their offerings in the Bay Area, in NYC, and elsewhere...but always worth a stop if you're in the neighbourhood.

Cappuccino, espresso, coffee. Not the "big chain store" sugary, milkshake, 7-11 slurpee of the coffee world. The real stuff.

As for alcohol, I'd rather save my calories for dessert.

Have been drinking a lot of cocktails lately. Negroni's, Manhattans - the lot.

as for beer, nothing like a good Trappist after grinding away on the hills near the monasteries where they brew 'm. Or a nice light pilsner style brew while wrenching.

Bottoms up and rubber side down, C&V!

Just a good, basic American beer! Yes beer!

All of this girly-man, she-she beer with citrus or pumpkin or apples, or orange or God-knows-what added to it is for guys who don't like beer!

Heck, Pabst Blue Ribbon won America's Best Beer award in 1893, what else do you need to know?

There are so many beers out in the public eye since I had my last one

But when I did have a beer or nine, I was a Guinness man.
Also drank a lot of Pinkus.

My favorite was Corsondonk monks pale ale. One of those and you don't operate any machinery.

There was a store on the state line that used to stock Olympia just for me, I liked that it said "good luck" on the can! Hamms as well.

Nowadays, I drink gobs of tea while working, Taylors of Harrogate, Thompsons Irish breakfast, lots of loose leaf Russian and white teas. I have some stuff that a friend sends me from Korea, I cant read the label, but drink one pot and you can lick your palms and climb a smooth wall.
Every once in a while I get a sixpack of Clausthaler NA beer. Its pretty damn good, probably the best NA there is.

For the record, it was stopping that got me into C&V. Two weeks after my last one, a friend asked me to do a short tour. Didn't have a new bike anymore(I stopped drinking for good reasons)but I did have an old Motobecane Grand Touring in rough shape. Disassembled it without any of the right tools, money, or knowhow, put it back together, and it got me through 400 miles with panniers. Everyone I rode with was so amazed that an old decrepit looking bike could be so light, and that it made it, that I got interested in Vintage road bikes for real. Have never regretted not having a new bike, even though I can afford one again

Summertime - Gin & tonic. Sometimes with bitters, sometimes without. I prefer the pine of Tanqueray but a dry gin is also excellent.

Not summertime - Tequila. Best bang for your buck and smokey smooth, Don Julio Anejo. Lots o cash, try Don Adolfo Extra Anejo.

How do you get your Heady Topper? You drive to Vermont just before it is delivered?

My choice for Strong Brew lately has been Dogfish Head 90 Minute IPA or Harpoon's Leviathan IPA, serious stuff. For more mundane stuff it has been Harpoon IPA. When a friend was visiting last week we tried Flying Dog's Raging *****. It was much better warm than cold. Otherwise the various tastes are just too incoherent.

I'm old fashioned; a martini is gin, vermouth, stirred not shaken. Whisky is single malt Scotch, neat. Well, any good bourbon or Tennessee whiskey is also fine by me. The most complicated mixed drink I make is a gin and tonic. Tequila is also best served neat but a margarita on a hot day is nice.

I enjoy a good beer, be it a stout or ipa. American lagers are thin at best; I like beers with weight on them.

It's water and watered-down Gatorade for me when riding.
