Have you tried the DIPA's from Bent Hill Brewery ? My second favorite ...as well as Farnham's DIPA offerings !

i'm in training to lose weight, and can't be drinking anything

but a recent experience with an entire bottle of johnny walker red in altogether too short a time has allowed me to stay away with a bit more determination than usual.


every day you do not take a chance is a day of your life that you will never get back.

Similar tastes in bikes and beer! I've actually got one in my hand right now as I try to figure out this handlebar controls thing. Haven't tried Bent Hill but you talk a good DIPA game so I'm totally taking your word for it and I'll give it a try. How hard is it to find, I've never actually looked for it so won't know if I've seen it. Ach, why ask, that's why there's Google ;-)

I like Canadian Club, but have to admit the Royal or 12 year old stuff on ice is the way to go. But recently [and I could be hung for admitting this] I tried some in a glass of coffee cola. Never had it before but I thought it was rather good for a mixer.
For beer I generally only drink Coopers Pale Ale...its all I have in my fridge. I can't stand the trendy 'dry' beers and for some reason just one will give me a headache.
And you can keep all your heavy Guinness and Kilkenny beers, taste like they are made with muddy water to me. Feel like spewing on the smell, they honestly have to be toxic!!!

Alex, last time I was out in New Brunswick, they were still working the Control Board thing, but that was in 1996, I think, so they might have wised up. I remember we went into combination restaurant/supermarket/liquor store near Hartland, and the booze section was separated by a low wall with a cash register, all purchases had to be paid for before looking for eggs, bacon etc.


Mike, home is where we moor it.

Same in Pennsylvania . We are just getting beer in some of our supermarkets but as you said its still separate. Pay for that first at the dedicated register then do your grocery shopping .... But we are slowly moving into the modern age

I'm trying a new Irish whiskey called Proper Twelve. Can't say what the twelve means, darn sure isn't 12 years old.
Tested straight shots and it's got a bit less burn than Jameson, a bit more woody taste.
The rocks test will take a wee bit longer. I'll report back.

Update: I do prefer the Proper # Twelve. It is both smoother and more flavorful than Jameson.

Same here, but I exercise while I drink. There's a cup holder on my bicycle.

Got a raging head cold going on so at night it's been a cup of hot mint or chamomile tea with a shot of Krupnik (Polish honey liquor) in it. Soothes the throat, opens the sinuses, and puts you out for the night.

I’ve found a terrifyingly delicious triple IPA from Flying Monkeys brewery called Sparklepuff. It’s actually scary how smooth it is. Also had a chance to try a 14.5 percent stout by a brewery up here called Nickelbrook. Beer was called El Bastardo. Delicious but I only bought one 8 ounce glass and that was my day!

Dude I knew in Syracuse always had a keg of Kilt Tilter stout, about 9%. Very nice but I always ended up s**t faced by half time of the game we were watching.

Forty years ago Southern Comfort tried to kill me, haven't able to stand the smell of it since.

I have just had a pint of Fuggles "brown and beery" ale. In a little village pub, served in a dimply jug, at cellar temperature.

Bloody marvleus.

St Peter's Suffolk Gold (ale) and "Ubu" (more ale, this is from Warwickshire, although the name sounds like a flash restaurant). Possibly a single malt to follow.

St Peter's hits the spot, taken with cheese.
