    Yeah I really like using them for standard ambers, ira's, pa's, ipa's & all lagers. I save the proper for imperial's doubles and such.

    That Quilmes is a new one to me, but I've had all those other beers at some point. Sometimes, I tick for a location, and sometimes I'm just curious...

    I found the Colt to be the most offensive (sorry! I know some folks dig it!); the O'Doul's was just silly (this cannot possibly be what "people-who-want-beer-but-cannot-have-alcohol" want :astonished:) - it was like, mildly dirty water; and the others were all just pretty much versions of Bud from other countries - the darker color on that Marathon showed some promise, but I found it just as bad as the rest :grimacing: ...I thought the Tusker had the most "heart." Unless somebody's going on a tour of such beers, I wouldn't recommend any of them... :stuck_out_tongue: lol

    I've fallen asleep with a good amount of a good beer still in the glass. I've kept it in the fridge and then drank it the next day even though it was flat.

    A couple of months ago I drank an entire 750 of Duvel from the bottle. I was already drunk though.
    I like the taste of Lime-Aritas, Mango-Ritas and Straw-berritas.
    I think very hoppy beer is overrated and if the climate messes up the quality of hops this year I'm gonna laugh pretty hard about it.
    I don't drink craft beer JUST for the taste.

    I haven't drunk a BMC since 1993. When my hockey team won the championship, I faked drinking the victory Bud and crinkled my can as I threw it in the trash but the can was full and made a thud.

    Never liked the old school west coast/rocky mountain cascade IPA's. Got into IPA when Vermont served up the fruit juice IPA's, and the glasses already existed. What luck!

    I would say my biggest sacrilege would be that I do not have all the proper glassware and the vast majority of my beers are pored into a Wiezen glass.

    Using an 8 dollar bomber simply to boil brats in.

    This is totally off-topic but I've had the old Würzburger jingle stuck in my head for the past two days and I had to let someone know...

    'Würzburger, Würzburger, real German beer! The way it tastes here is the way it tastes there!'

    And, now, if you're old enough to remember it, so do you.

    You're welcome.

    I take beers that I don't want or are past their prime to my softball buddies and pass it off that I am full of goodwill! :slight_smile: They don't know the difference so no real crime, right?

    Although I enjoyed their beer, I knew the place would never survive with the set up they had. It was just too big.

    A few years ago, I brought a can of Heady on the mountain with me. It mostly froze in the sub zero temps. I then brought it in the car ride home, leaving it in the dash cup holder. Fell asleep, and when I awoke, it had gitten warm. I was so frustrated, I just basically chugged it right then and there.
    Also have mixed entire cans of Sip of Sunshine and Heady. I still do it. I think its great.

    I've made chili and beer bread using Founder's Breakfast Stout. Celebrator doppelbock is also good in chili - anything with a strong malt flavor and on the darker side gives it added body.

    We made a chocolate stout cake using a Cadillac Mountain stout... freakin' epic.

    Of course, I also have been known to drink Steel Reserve straight from the can... but when I do I usually chug and it's gone in 8 seconds.

    I know both breweries, but fully type out their names to avoid confusion.
    However, I see people interchangeably use the two acronyms for both Indiana and Belgium.

    I did the same thing with a CCB White Oak Jai Alai, right on Central Ave in front of Cycle Brewing. I had just picked up a couple crowlers of Crank, and went to put them in my cooler in the back seat, which had three 4 packs of WOJA that I picked up at CCB 30 minutes prior. I immediately smelled beer when I opened the cooler, and saw a small stream shooting from a can. I grabbed it, popped the top immediately, and chugged it while holding a finger over the pin hole. It was so damn good, I had to take one back into Cycle and give to the beertender just because at that moment, I felt someone else needed to taste that beer.

    As far as sacrilege, I will sometimes crack open a bomber of something strong (9+% ABV) at the wee hours of the morning after drinking for hours, knowing theres no way in hell Ill be able to finish it. Then I wake up pissed at myself when I see I drank maybe 1/3 of it before passing out....and I do it ALL THE TIME.

    this may be kind of an odd one, but making fun of somebody else's tastes/preferences. one of the great things about craft beer is its diversity and appeal to a wide variety of audiences, I think it would be "sacrilege" to ridicule that.

    I will open at least 6 at a time and cap them back in the fridge. Variety is the spice of life and rotating them is key to bring more different ipas in the house.

    I agree. Lots of bad design decisions, especially with regard to the scope of the place. That cavernous beerhall (intended as the centerpiece of the operation) was even apparently something of a local joke, from what I've heard (I have visited the area every summer since the late 1970s for an annual convention and have come to know many of the locals).

    The entire complex, including the hotel (once a nice place but which had seriously gone to seed) and brewery (which was gutted more than a decade ago), has been now been demolished, except for the restaurant/bar that was once attached to the brewery.
