    I love beer so much, I would stick my balls in a microwave to get a license to buy it... if that's what it takes.

    Well, since I change avatars more frequently than I change socks, I'll update. This is a picture of Maynard Troyer driving the last Pinto-bodied asphalt modified he drove, pictured at the Big O, Oswego (NY) Speedway. The following year the majority of cars in this class had bodies based on the first generation Chevy Cavaliers. Such as the Wilsberg 5, based on Long Island, and driven in a dominating fashion during the 1982 season by Greg Sacks: http://i12.photobucket.com/albums/a240/thebullfather/used/Greg_Sacks5_1981.jpg

    Mine is the painting by Minnesota artist Gregory Euclide that was used as the cover for Bon Iver's second album. This image captures a lot of what I love about where I live in Wisconsin--looks like a pretty good fishing spot...

    My avatar is a photo I took on a rainy January evening of the Belgian bar, A la Mort Subite. The name itself is named after a high stakes "sudden death" game played by workers. Located in central Brussels, it's a solid bar / brewery. They brew their own lambics and have a respectable beer list. (Who doesn't in Belgium?) Their appetizer of cheese and meat is solid and comes with an interesting addition, celery salt to add to it. It actually is quite a nice condiment! Anyway, it's a cool place to grab a snack in Brussels, though I'd say head over the La Rose Blanché on the square for dinner : )

    Buick Grand National "turbo 6" logo. The logo is used to represent the Buick turbo Regals of mid 1980's.

    I was born and raised as a car kid/guy. A turbo Regal was my first "fast" car. It's been 28 years since the last turbo Regal left the assembly line, and they still turn heads and win at the drag strip.

    Buick PRIDE! :grinning:

    I recently changed mine to honor my father-in-law who passed away recently. It is a caricature of himself he created for a graphics design business he had hoped to open. I have incorporated it into my homebrew logo as well.

    Mine represents the desire of man to live a simple life where great beer and sandy beaches are bountiful. And where if you believe that, then I think you need your head checked. HAHA I had a bottle of Huna at the beach and took a picture... end of story.

    I walked into a German beer hall in Brooklyn, called "Der Schwartze Kolner," and I was blown away by the tap selection. I hadn't had much exposure to German beer at the time, so I was immediately grabbed by that row of taps. I took a picture of it, saved it, and it seemed wholly appropriate. As I recall, I tried to work my way down the line, but I didn't make it past the half way point. The bar has a new name, but it is still a German beer hall. It's not too far from the Barclay's Center.

    I got mine at a poster sale at the University in my city but i'm sure you could find them without any issue online.

    A Google search of "Vintage Guinness Posters" yields plenty of results.

    I'm from Pittsburgh and, until last month, was living in the Lawrenceville neighborhood. Did a trade with a guy for a bunch of Bissell Bros Substance and Swish. Went out to my car one day, looked up, and for the first time notice that "Bissell Way" was right behind my apartment. I ran inside, grabbed a can of each beer, snapped the picture, posted it to Instagram, and tagged Peter Bissell. He approved.

    It's a painting by Leon Golub called "Fuck Death". It was his reaction to terrorist action; I've appropriated it to mean any unnecessary (read unchosen) loss of mortality.

    Had Kwak for the first time at a Czech/German restaurant in Boerne, TX, on tap no less.
    Absolutely entranced by this incredible beer. Wish it was available on tap somewhere up where I live now on the Olympic Peninsula.

    Benjamin Peret, poet

    Why wander about between two hedges made of stair-rails while the ladders become soft
    as new-born babes
    as zouaves who lose their homeland with their shoes
    Why raise one's arms towards the sky since the sky
    has drowned itself without rhyme or reason
    to pass the time and make its moustaches grow
    Why does my eye sit down before going to bed
    because saddles are making donkeys sore
    and pencils break in the most unpredictable fashion
    the whole time
    except on stormy days
    when they break into zigzags
    and snowy days
    when they tear their sweaters to pieces
    But the spectacles the old tarnished spectacles
    sing songs while gathering grass for cats
    The cats follow the procession
    carrying flags
    flags and ensigns
    The fish's tail crossing a beating heart
    the throat regularly rising and falling to imitate the sea surrounding it
    and the fish revolving about a ventilator
    There are also hands
    long white hands with nails of fresh greenery
    and finger-joints of dew
    swaying eyelashes looking at butterflies
    saddened because the day made a mistake on the stairs
    There are also sexes fresh as running water
    which leap up and down in the valley
    because they are touched by the sun
    They have no beards but they have clear eyes
    and they chase dragonflies
    without caring what people will say
