When I was in high school / college, all you could get was swill from the big national and regional brewers. Nowadays, any decent sized town has at least one micro brewery. The variety is amazing. And, Sam Adams is a helluva good mass produced beer.

These are wonderful times we live in.
Damn, I coulda sworn I've seen Yuengling on the shelves before. I looked around, but they didn't have any.

So I'm continuing with my Samuel Smith discovery:


EDIT: I must say Imperial Stout > Nut Brown Ale

Going to a big party tonight, going to see if I can find this:



If anyone has any suggestions that has a similar taste to this, do tell.

Local package store is warehouse size, but they still don't have everything.

So I bought a 1pt 8oz bottle of Beck's tonight and put it on ice in the freezer to get it nice and cold and went to take a shower. I took kinda long and when I opened the beer, about half of it was slush. Have you ever had this? It's like a beer margarita (a beergarita, get it?), but without the gay. I don't think I'll make this a regular thing, as it's a little hard to drink, but it was a nice change.

</cool story bro>

Blue Moon is a good'n, already mentioned.





These are all beers from where I live (including Blue Moon, which is traditionally to be drunk with orange), and I am partial to the localish type stuff.

Fat Tire used to feel like a heavier beer to me, and was actually the heaviest I'd go. When I started with beer, I was more partial to things like Blue Moon or the wheat beers, like Sunshine. But the older I get, the more these taste like water and the more I lean toward the more hopsy beers, which I consider "heavier". I've still not tried guinness. The Cold Hops is supposed to be a British inspired beer, and is the hoppsiest and more full flavored of my common beer indulgences. Recommended!

In a drunken 18 yr old state I once tried to make beer slushies (while already drunk). Ice, shitty Puerto Rican Beer (Medalla Light), a blender = worst idea ever. But the heart behind it is nice. Basically, it's fucking hot and the coldest of cold beer doesn't sound so bad.

LOL, I can only imagine what happened when you tried to blend carbonated beer.

I'm more talking about natural freeze though. Since beer is more or less a homogeneous mix of water and alcohol (and other stuff) and alcohol doesn't freeze in normal freezers, you can expect a beer from the freezer to basically be slush: the water will freeze, but the alcohol won't and so you should get slush.

Oh, no, I gottcha. Just expressing that I am totally behind the impulse for beer slushies.

Well, I did end up finding this and grabbed the last two bottles the store had. This shit is fucking good. None of that extremely hoppy bitter taste; it tastes exactly how it says on the bottle.
