Lately I've acquired a love of New Belgium's Trippel ale. Same style as my favorite beer from Dragonmead (Final Absolution) only it's cheaper and easier to find.

Alright, trying a Copper Line Amber Ale with dinner... it's tolerable. Better than the others, but I think I just don't like too much hops (not that I drink much to begin with, the beer-drinking's pretty much picked up out of a need to pass these stones...).

edit: Now drinking a Carver Sweet Potato beer. Actually not bad, but I think I may simply not really like the burn of alcohol all that much. Just need these stones to pass...

Pick up a Belgian white - Blue Moon, Fat Tire, or UFO. No noticeable hoppy taste.

I was introduced to Gulden Draak via Go Get a Roomie!, and while I was on my last training trip in CA, I got the chance to try it. Very strong, kind of a strange whang to it...not bad, but not something I'd choose as a regular brew.

St Patrick's day so far:

  • Michael Collins (Tom Collins with Jameson substituted for gin. It'll fly you to the moon and leave you in orbit.)

  • Frozen Margarita ('s green)

  • Green Beer (mystery brand)

  • Guinness pot roast

  • Draft Guinness (about time I classed up my tab)

I was going to further update, but my phone battery died.

  • Crispin Pear Cider

  • Harp brownie with ice cream This was a really involved thing where basically they had a special menu for the day and this was only on the regular menu, so they couldn't give me one. But they didn't tell me that until after about half an hour, and only told me that clearly fifteen minutes after that. After I'd already let the waitstaff charge my tab to my card with the brownie on it.

  • Went to Dairy Queen, got a mint oreo/m&m Blizzard.

I just got back from Seattle Beer Fest. I had a lot of different beers, some of which were good, and some of which were not so good. However, there were two beers that absolutely blew me away with how awesome they were (which is why I decided to post something here). They were both barrel-aged beers from Seattle-area breweries that I consider to be otherwise fairly mediocre. The first was gin barrel IPA from Bellevue Brewing. The second was a bourbon barrel stout from Fremont Brewing called Kentucky Dark Star.

Finally got around to finishing off my bottle of sherry I bought... oh my, maybe a year ago. I was reclining on the couch while I drank it and didn't notice anything until I stood up and whoosh.

I wish there was such a thing as box whiskey. I like the price of box wine, but I prefer spirits.

Just realized this thread existed. I love my drinks, so I figured I'd join in.

My first official drink when I first turned 21 was a glass of Crystal Head Vodka, I still have the bottle which I've kept for sentimental reasons.

Since then, over the years, I've mostly been a rum drinker. My drink of choice being a rum and coke. However, I've taken a shine to White Russians for rather obvious reasons. Sadly, I don't get to drink that often due to living with two recovering alcoholics... though today I had the opportunity to mix a drink for myself since they were attending a wedding for the day. It was rather nice...

Is not impressed.

Going back to Not Your Father's Root Beer — it also make a very tasty not your father's root beer float with a scoop of good vanilla icecream.

Found a bunch of out of season beer in the clearance corner while grocery shopping. Picked up a six-pack of Shock Top pretzel wheat for $3.50.

Pretzel wheat is one of those beers that absolutely shouldn't be good but somehow is.

Avenuewriter, you're a good roommate.

Now then. Let's talk BEER! I'm from Colorado, and our microbrew culture is ridiculous. There are SO MANY microbreweries. And so many of them are good! I'm partial to Dry Dock Brewing; not sure if they sell their beer out of state (yet), but it is amazing. Their vanilla porter is the most vanilla-tasting beer I've ever had.

This banana bread stout may be the first flavored beer I've tried that my immediate reaction to the first sip wasn't "this is vile".

I've recenly come to the conclusion that my preferred cocktail is either vodka+water or karsk (vodka+coffee). Unlike a martini, which is 3-4 shots of vodka or gin with nothing but some vermouth (which I despise), some olives (which I also despise), and a bit of melted ice to take the edge off, those go down smoothly.

Other mixed drinks tend to have stuff I'm not in the mood for as part of the recipe and I'd rather not suffer through something that's non-alcoholic and as disgustingly sweet as a Shirley Temple.

I can't remember if I've asked this before, so: flavor- and impact-wise, how does mezcal differ from tequila? I'm not much of a tequila drinker but have been curious about trying mezcal for a while now.

Impulse bought a bottle of Chardonnay while I was at the booze store because it was marked 3 for 10. It had the softest cork I've ever encountered, and since my corkscrew is still "spare screw sunk in and pulled out with claw hammer", I did more tearing than pulling. Also whittling. And then the last third was more interested in going down than coming up.

So I have a three dollar bottle of wine with cork crumbs in it.

Thank goodness the mead I came for is a screwtop.

[up]You might want to get a sommelier's corkscrew.

I don't drink wine. A lot of my friends and relatives do. I have a sommelier's corkscrew similar to this one because they sometimes forget to bring one.

I got my hands on another bottle of Lithuanian beer (after a flip-top of dark Butautu I enjoyed a couple of weeks ago and sought in the supermarket today), this time spiced dark beer called "Senojo Vilniaus" (Old Vilnian).

Even better than the Butautu. Although the local breweries are pretty good, I enjoyed the Fortuna Black I got on Thursday.
