I've been working with my contractor on a deck project all day. Pretty tired and I just cracked open a nice lagunitas IPA. (Rhymes!)

Not really an IPA fan myself - but I did have a REALLY good one on St. Croix from a local brewery to the island, Leatherback Brewery. Sadly, they do not ship to the mainland. :(

I prefer darker beers like porter and stout. Been really liking whiskey/bourbon barrel aged stout lately.

I used to like dark beers, but I guess I got my stomach full of that. I'm now into lighter beers, Czech style.
Never tasted rye beer, though. I think I should.

I hope you are feeling better Graeme. My mom had to have her's removed when she was in her 60's, which was 15 years ago and she's doing fine.

Don't partake of the trio if you are driving an AVX later.

Okay you guys, I hope you all enjoy your beers.

As neither Sophia nor myself partake, we will toast you all with our glasses of wine instead tonight, as we spend a cosy night in :popcorn:

Hi all. My wife and I are not big on beer, as we prefer vodka/tonic and a slice of lime. However, back when we lived in Illinois, I would occasional stop in a European ethnic pub on the south side of Chicago after my service calls were done and then heading out for the long ride home. The most popular request was the German Hacker-Pschorr weiss bier (wheat beer) with a small slice of lemon in the beer mug. This has a very robust flavor, and before moving to Florida, I bought a custom mug.
Hacker-Pschorr.JPG
Since moving here to Florida, it is very hard to find. The closest thing readily available around here is the Belgian Blue Moon Wit bier (which includes coriander and orange). As I said, were not big into beer, but I always get a 6 pack for St. Patrick's day (to go along with the corned beef, cabbage, and potatoes). And also with Oktoberfest coming up soon (to go along with the roast pork, sauerkraut, and dumplings).
I hope that all of you have a great weekend worldwide and also a nice Labor Day here in the US.

I wouldn't say no to thick red wine and blue/white cheese either... (Sorry, I don't know what the general word for molded cheeses is.)

I like red wines, but the tannins in them give me headaches, except for our homebrew elderberry...

Beer is sorta like cars to men, a lot of makes, and we want to drive them all before we die. :lol:

Besides my usual brand, the last "different" beer I tried was this one. A tribute to The Tragically Hip, perchance? :lol:

That bottle beside it is an old "stubby" from years ago, before Canada switched to the American style bottle in the mid-eighties. Ahhh, to be a teen-ager again... ;)

All the best,

This thread sure does not make it easier being teetotaler. I started that regimen a few months ago because I like wine too much, if I have it in house it will be consumed. Beer comes in second. I like IPAs, the light ones, and Hefeweitzen with lime. Hope you all have some nice beers this Labor Day weekend.
