Yay, I just had my first Sam Adams Oktoberfest on tap last night. 'Tis the season for a good domestic. Between Oktoberfest and Winter Lager, my faith in American beer is restored, only to be ripped away by the cruel hands of February, when I head back overseas until September.

I've had bottled Oktoberfest from Sam in my basement for awhile now (almost a month, I think) - MMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMM!

Remember - Sam Adams Lager was approved to be produced and distributed in Germany (meaning it conforms to the purity law); how many domestic beers can claim that?

We're fortunate enough to have a few local "Micro" brews here - they're nice because they normally have local names, good flavor, and are not too expensive (not in the Budweiser category, but then again they don't taste like water, either).

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Samuel_Adams_(beer)

That's what you were talking about?  Oh, I could have told you about their contracting out for bottled distribution - I've been on the tour in Boston 3 or so times.  However, When they slapped the Sam Adams name on the label, they were only brewing in the one local brewery in Boston (The Boston Beer Company).

Nice place, by the way.  You get about the equivalent of a pint and a half of free beer at the end of the tour.

Reading the history, seems very little is made in Boston - an R&D brewery. It's fine with me...we just used to chuckle about the great Boston beer made in the old "Arn brewy" in Pittsburgh-speak.

Oh yeah - the brewery there is large enough to only supply R&D, and kegs to the local market.  Now, their major production site is in the great beer-making state of.... Ohio.  (Home to a massive operation for Budweiser as well).

I'm tired and I want to go to bed

And it went right to my head

It was early last December, as near as I remember
I was strolling down the way in tipsy pride.
Not a soul was I disturbing, as I lay down by the curbing
And a pig came up and lay down by my side.

As I lay there in the gutter, thinking thoughts I cannot utter,
I heard a high born lady pause and say
"You can tell a man who boozes by the company he chooses"...
And the pig got up and slowly walked away.

 ;D

If skinny drank more beer, he would be large enough to not die from said attack of the fatty.

The moral: never sleep in the same bed with someone who is either (a) not a beer drinker, or (b) more than double your own mass.

Never Write Poetry With A Hangover

By Christian Ward


I fed last night’s verse
packs of cigarettes
and half opened cans
of Guinness

brown rimmed craters
started to appear like
cracks in the pages,
but I was too sober to notice;

I still had the taste
of the half eaten
verse in my mouth,
which was slowly
falling out, leaving
holes in the carpet.

A postcard of better times
still hangs in the back
of my mind.

I haven’t destroyed that yet.

Drinking song time!

 USED TO WORK IN CHICAGO
Oh, I used to work in Chicago
In a Department Store
I used to work in Chicago -
I did but I don't anymore.
A lady came in and asked for a hat
I asked her what kind she'd adore
Felt she said, so felter I did
I did but I don't anymore!

“Booze! Booze!” the firemen cried, as they cam a-knockin’ at the door;
Oh don’t let ‘em in ‘til it’s all mopped up, somebody shouted “MacIntyre!” MacIntyre!!!
And we all got blue blind paralytic drunk when the Old Dun Cow caught fire."

LET'S DRINK UNTIL WE GO!
BY ROGUEHAMMER

Breakfast is a good meal,
O' good ol’ bacon and eggs,
The whites give you your fingers
And the yolk gives you your legs!

Lunch is a better meal,
Cheese and buttered toast,
Butter gives you lots o’ warmth,
But it's bread you love the most!

Dinner is the best meal,
Meat, bread, fruit and cheer!
And froth gives you the hiccups,
But body’s better here!

Yea, better still are drinking times,
Better than the best,
For as we know, the drinks are yet
Better than the rest!

We don’t care for tea and loibl,
All we want is ale,
We’ll drink and drink and eat and eat
And again until we’re pale!

O, the skies are good for flyin’,
The fields are good for lyin’
But as we well know, the rest is just for show,
We’re drinkin’ till we’re dyin’!
As we well know, the rest is just for show,
But we're quaffing, till we go - ho!
"For I am With thee, withersoever thou goest"

As a result of a thousand million years of evolution, the universe is becoming conscious of itself, able to understand something of its past history and its possible future.

Oh, yeah... that Ukie-Canadian accent... *scary*.

as for your wondering:
I wonder why every conversation in this thread, always comes back to alcohol.......

I suppose the answer is that we use the e-drinking in this thread to kick back after long days of theology, ecclesiology, politics, and the like...

I guess this makes the thread more like the OC.net local pub - a place to talk about random subjects and enjoy a few e-suds.
