Just found it in the fridge? I wish I had a beer fairy that came and filled my fridge up with beer every night. That'd be sweet. How did you get yours?

It's not owned by Budweiser. They have an agreement with AB to market it here in the US, it's also not a pilsner either. And it's not mediocre. It's no Krombacher, Wartsteiner, Mahrs, or Krugbrau but it's still a really solid lager.

Pilsner Urquell is also really fuckin good.

Almost like becoming a beer fan is a cool/hipster thing to do


I'm no hipster. I'm a beer fan because I love beer. I love beer so much I went to Munich for Oktoberfest (and yes that makes me sooooooo fuckin awesome ;-) ;) :wink: ). I'm like you, I drink what tastes good, I never read reviews cause that's for jagoffs.



Just being a snide prick here, but technically there are really only 2 kinds of beers: Ales and Lagers (the types of yeast used in fermentation, top/bottom fermented respectively). A pilsner, hells lager, bock, marzen, dortmunder, etc fall into the latter while stouts, ambers, hefes, barleywines, dunkels, kolsch, most belgians are all ranges of ales.

As I type this, I'm about to crack open a a Brooklyner-Schneider Hopfen-Weisse (Weizenbock) which is a blend of a Schneider-Weisse Wheat then dry-hopped with Amarillo and Palisade hops.

Doooods, sometimes aint's no thang wrong with dat if da time is write!

/My drunk ass, on Saturday for the 3rd of July, when my parents meet my GF's parents for the first time. Nothing long with a little pain, anxiety, and awfulness to down quickly so I'm thinking about something else. I'll put it this way - my parents are pretty small town (but worldy folk) and her folks are Swiss-Dutch nationals. Awesome.

Nah you're not a snide prick. I just have a powerful lust for Pils, which is a lager, but I just consider them two somewhat different things. Kinda like a shark and a walleye, sure they're both fish, but different in looks and taste.

I don't drink Ales, dark beer just doesn't fit my pallet.

I'm drinking Spaten Lager.... and it's goooood. (oh and my good friend Mr. Turkey is here as well)

Wow - I wasn't even drunk when I wrote that. What I meant to say was nothing wrong with a little paint, anxiety, and awfulness to down quickly so busch light made sense. But seriously, I am going to be absolutely stupid on Saturday - good thing her parents, who live in Chardon, hang out only other Europeans for the most part. We're going to be having fun and shitfaced, so hopefully our parents hit it off well.

Last Friday I drank a 4-pack of Monster. Good stuff. I followed that up with a couple Bud Lites and some 64 cal shit my cousin had. Tasted like water. Some family came in late Friday from PA. They had 4 cases of Yuengling. Good shit.

Why exactly don't they ship Yuengling to Ohio?

If I drank a 4-pack of Monster I would be left trying to decide if the room spun less with my eyes open or closed.

I would then do the logical thing. Take the dog for a walk. I've taken the dog on drunken walks long enough that my wife got in the car to come looking for me.

True story.

I asked a distributor in Erie the same question. Said they don't want to dilute their quality or their distribution methods by adding more states. They have a brewery in PA and FL apparently andfeel like they can cover where its available now without reducing quality.

Take it fwiw but I've had Yeungling in TX and MI so at the end of the day I don't know what to believe.

Peek's right, they don't have the means to add any more states without sacrificing quality...

Only 2 breweries (PA & FLA), that are taken over by family members as the last ones retire/die...Anheiser's been trying to buy them out for a while so they can be called "the oldest in America"...

Only available in 11 states + DC: Pennsylvania, New Jersey, New York, Delaware, Maryland, Virginia, North Carolina, Florida, South Carolina, Alabama & West Virginia

Market Garden Brewery is open now, btw.

Stopped by real quick yesterday for a beer. They were out of their IPA and pale ale but had the Gordian Strong Ale and it was excellent. I'll definitely be going back soon.
