    Yuengling. I'm not sure what else. I kind of rotate everything.
     
  9. Yes. Precisely. It's exactly one Metric Shit-ton.

    It's not accurate at all (dry weight and fluid weight are different "ounces"), but it doesn't even have to be close for me to answer. Certainly Schlitz in the mid 1970s, PBR in the 80s/early 90s and Berkshire Steel Rail and Lost Sailor since. Probably others but I'm absolutely positive about these.

    I lived in Ireland for a year in my college days so I would have to say Guinness easily. Also Bud from my college/post-college days. Now that I'm older and there is so much good craft beer, I rotate a lot depending on season and whats available that probably the only beer I drink year round is Hennepin. No matter the weather, a tasty Hennepin always hits the spot.
     
  40. 3x/wk at Schlenkerla x 4 beers avg. per visit x 6 years = more than my weight
