I love Shiner Bock. It's kinda "malty" but still refreshing.

You can never have too much beer in the fridge or too many bikes in the house.

After reading this thread (and drinking a cheap beer) I just fired up the barbie and tossed on a couple of Costco sirloin patties! I'm not even that hungry...but I can ALWAYS eat.

That is the official beer of Hondo Texas yes it’s cheap and light and goes down fast when ice cold. Forgiving in the morning and it great for hot weather. And grilling.

sorry, no peruvian lime chicken picks as the grill was too hot and crazy to put the tongs down at any point.

Damn, I remember the days of having a fridge stocked with more beer than food, but that was when these were still considered fairly "new"............
