Other than Cyrillicos and those swag gangstas from The Night Watchmen, no. There are not.

Ahhh.......................It was the "swag gangsta" slang that threw me.  I'm not even really sure what that means, but I'm guessing it has something to with feathers in hats  ;D.

Really, this is one of the most disgusting ideas I've ever heard of. This should be outlawed and the inventor should be sent to a gulag.

LOL, my brother in law gave be a bottle of that bacon maple beer.  I tried it, but couldn't get through it.  I think the strong bacon aftertaste and the sickening maple sweetness just didn't do it for me.  He would drink it for breakfast.  To each their own, I suppose.

You're supposed to use a modicum of taste and discrimination when shopping for beer in the U.S., ignoring the mass marketed fizzy bourgeois slop that some quite mistakenly call "beer".

Brooklyn Ale is the only name I can remeber. I might have also had a pint of Samuel Adams too. Unfortunately I don't remember any others. The bad impression might have something to do with the fact that I generally dislike all kinds of pale lagers.

due to high-alcohol content and thickness (and some sweetness) this is a dessert beer, so you won't really need more than one or two in one sitting.

It depends on the mood. Mostly I prefer ales and pilsners these days. I used to like dark lagers but at some point many of them started to taste way too sweet. Quite a shame since dark lagers are how I got into beer in the first place. Velkopopovický Kozel Dark in particular used to be my favourite. Those were the days...

I wanted to give them a chance. I like to pick completely random beers without knowing anything about them beforehand.

Huh?  Jokes about the beer thus your dark hour is regarding beer, or jokes about your dark hour?  IDK, what your dark hour is about, but if I did I wouldn't joke about it, homes!

If something is going on that you need/want some assistance with, if "nothing" more than prayers, I'm sure there's not a person here who wouldn't do what they could for you.  But when you drop a cryptic message in the middle of a conversation about beer and other "RANDOM" stuff....well...it's kinda hard to make sense of it.  Care to elaborate?

Is there something specific we could do, celticfan?  I can't really afford to fly you home to the good ol' US of A, but if you let us know a bit more about what is going on with you, perhaps we can find some way to help?

Yes, I remember that, and I don't think anyone made any jokes about it.  Just the opposite, really.  He never did get back to us about what was going on or even why he was there.

If he's an American citizen and for whatever reason destitute and/or in trouble, the best thing to do would be to get himself to the U.S. consulate and/or find a Catholic or Orthodox church to help him out in whatever way they can and he needs.

Mor Ephrem is William and I's new nemesis.
Until I see the resurrection of the dead and the life of the world to come, I will not believe.

So is grammar, apparently.

You're supposed to use a modicum of taste and discrimination when shopping for beer in the U.S., ignoring the mass marketed fizzy bourgeois slop that some quite mistakenly call "beer".  

You see no problem in this statement of grand supposition?   :laugh:

agree. anyhow usa is a beer-lover's paradise on par with Germany or Belgium.

 ???

Those that I've tasted have seemed fairly dull pale lagers.

The variety and quality of beers being produced here has exploded, but I don't know if this is reflected in what's available in Europe yet. But there is truly a vast assortment of great beer available in the US now, to the point where I would have to agree that we are now on par with Germany and Belgium. If you came here you are guaranteed to find something you like.
