    Made the mistake of having a HT, then a StoneTen, then 2 5 Racers followed by 2 Sumpins...Seemed like a good idea at 3:00...Having trouble typing now....

    I don't drink well in the afternoon, I get sleepy real quick, I do better after dinner and a full stomach. The initial buzz is really nice though.

    For me it's Oberon. Love to keep it cold in my fridge and crack one after some yard work, a bicycle ride, or motorcycle ride.

    I've been "experimenting" with shandys. San Pelegrino makes very nice fruit, (citrus), sodas: lemon, orange , blood orange and grapefruit, that I've been mixing 2parts beer to 1 part San Pel. My favorite to date is 2 12oz southern tier 2xipa with 1 12oz grapefruit San Pelegrino. But Stella makes a nice easy base for any of them. [​IMG]

    Festina Peche is my go to (on the third case of it), but otherwise my habits don't change that much. Actually end up drinking more traditional bitters and milds for the low ABV and easy drinking.

    Had that for the first time last week. Great stuff.

    I'll have to see if it's available in Texas. The Great Divide selections available here seem to be limited. Really enjoyed Titan IPA, though.

    I'd reach for some Genny Cream if it wasn't $8 an effing six-pack down here.

    I've gotten reaquainted with Sierra nevada Torpedo. Great anytime. I won't bore people with my local favorite that few outside the Houston area can get...oh what the hell...Southern Star Pine Belt Pale Ale is great for this time of the year. I'm enjoying Dale's Pale as well.

    Exactly right. When it's hot and your sweating like a pig and you take 5 second swigs it has to be easy. I can't pull on an IPA like that and enjoy it, ones a pounder ones a sipper.

    I'd probably opt for a good Pale Ale or Hefe, myself, rather than Miller Lite, or hell, even a Schlitz or PBR would work. To each his own. After all, it's beer...how bad can it be?
  20. That. sounds. awesome!!! I'm a big fan of those sodas, too.
