Greetings in that Divine and Most Precious Name of Our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ!



To my Colt 45 packin brotha Gebre, please. Up yo low budget game :)

And anything from a can - in my, admittedly not massive, experience - tastes terrible.

LOL. Didn't say I was proud of it.  ;)

Wasn't hating, that was my honest recommendation :)
I used to drink Tecate 24z until Rolling Rock came out with em.  That is my after-work wind-down special.

stay blessed,
habte selassie


I remember the months I spent in Mexico where Bohemia, Dos Equis, Tecate, and Negro Modelo could be had for next to nothing. I don't know how Corona became so popular. I always hated that stuff. But I loved me some Bohemia and Negra Modelo!

Picked up some items for tonight:


Freixenet Cordon Negro Cava

And of course...



2007 Chateauneuf du Pape Cuvee Reine des Bois Domaine de la Mordoree

Had several of these this weekend:


And rather too many of these:


That following morning:

Not strictly a liquid intake, but a necessary remedy for the previous night's bacchanalia

If it weren't for such women, I would've spent more nights than I can count alone. Although for much of my time drinking, beer and wine were strictly food items. Vodka was my alcoholic beverage.

You have a Slavic soul.   Wine and beer are definitely food items meant to compliment a meal.  Vodka is for serious drinking.

This is blasphemy. Everyone knows that beer is a godless latinization developed in Germany. True Orthodox Christians drink vodka and smoke cigarettes in the Narthex.
...Or it's just possible he's a mouthy young man on an internet forum.
In the infinite wisdom of God, James can be all three.

Then count me out. I gave up the vodka nearly five years ago and I am an off and on smoker, more on than off over the last year.

And unless those who dream of hailing from Middleterrania or who actually come from there have their ridiculous hookahs out, I keep the smoking on the down low out of respect for the primarily non-smoking crowd I know of.

I think people should generally avoid working at a place that creates or distributes beer, considering how awful beer tastes. I have similar feelings about vegemite.

Yep, I was being cereal.  Mavrodaphne is the best.

You haven't had the right beers.  This August, buy Octoberfest from Sam Adams.  If you do not like it, then there is probably no hope for you.

Orthodox (and, indeed, Roman Catholic) monasteries have been making wine (and, in western Europe, also brewing beer) for many centuries. If it's OK for monks to make wine (and it's by no means all intended for sacramental use) and sell it to support themselves
Link? I would love some wine made by Orthodox Monks (USA please...Im not trying to pay an arm and a leg).

Interestingly enough, I've never been into Sam Adam's Boston Lager, to hoppy for a lager, but I got some Latitude 48 IPA, and it is almost as good as Stone's IPA.  Indulgent, luxurious, thick, creamy, bursting with aromatic flavor with fruity understones.  A great brew :)
