the best sting story i ever heard was from a seventh day adventist beekeeper friend of mine. forgive me if i'm repeating myself. you have to understand that seventh day adventists are so clean in every way that they squeak when they turn their head. charlie wore a spotless white bee suit, never cussed, and never mentioned anything off-color in all the years i knew him.

at breakfast one day he explained to me how he was once caught short in a bee yard, and went to the bushes with his toilet paper. he hid from his people, but not from his bees. unbeknownst to him, one of his six legged employees lit on the paper he had laid on the ground while his attention was elsewhere. describing this to me, charlie the seventh day adventist looked me in the eye and said,

". . . and when i picked that paper up, that bee stung me right on the pucker-string of my asshole . . . "

i was dumfounded, and didn't quite recover my composure until after he had left.

my own story is similar, but without the drama.

although the girls have hit me three times now.


Into the distance a ribbon of black
Stretched to the point of no turning back
A flight of fancy on a windswept field
Standing alone my senses reeled
A fatal attraction is holding me fast how
How can I escape this irresistible grasp?

I like a nice hard cider, especially in the winter time but I've never been able to develop a taste for Southern Comfort. Hits me like a ton of bricks and gives me horrible hangovers. I call it Sudden Discomfort.

In but a few moments time I'll be firing up the FORTY INCHER, and then we're off to Belgium, for the MTO Rally held in Oosetende... grin

Where I shall be quaffing all sorts of wonderful Ale, Belgium being known for beer and all... wink

BUT, I discovered at the BSAOC International in Holland t'other week, I'm partial to a drop of Captain Morgan's Rum, I also love me Brandy, been known to have Vodka, and Southern Comfort. Not in the same glass y'all understand, I don't drink till I fall down, or indeed have a problem with it. If I do fall down, it's due to me being tired and worn out... bigt

Right that's me lot, time to fire the bike up, and off to yet ANOTHER weekend of fun, later dudes... beerchug

OK I need to ask, What is a hipster? I
I drink Pabst. I drank it along with Blatz, Old Style, Miller and when in the U.P., Stroh's
This started in the mid 70s.
At this same time beer can collecting was a popular activity, so I would try other beers from around the country.
Allen Bond took Heileman Brewing (Old Style and Special Export) with a buyout. The Company was just broken up and sold piecemeal.
The Business Section of the Milwaukee journal ran a story and interview with an official of the Pabst Brewing. They had stated how the company was doing.
In the story the official stated that the stock was trading at a value that was less than the company was worth.
A short time later Paul Kalmanovits Started a leveraged buy out of the company. The real Pabst brewery was soon shuttered and striped.
So for awhile most of the beers I started with were no longer available.
Fast forward to today.
The beers are back, but in this area they are brewed at the Miller Brewery on State st. in Milwaukee.
Many micro breweries have opened in Wisconsin in the last decade. I enjoy some of them. I will take a trip to try them, especially if they are connected to a restaurant.
While these beers offer new tastes and can become complex with how the flavor can change while drinking them, when I want to just have a simple beer that I do enjoy at home, Pabst works.
I will help friends and they ask what kind of beer do I want. When I say Pabst, they will say "oh come have a good beer". I tell them it is what I like, it's just a little nicer that a 30 pack is $16. So it is a win both ways.

An individuals taste for beers and ales is subjective, some folks like nanny goat piss others do not

I also like a good taste of Jameson (having one now in fact.) Tullamore Dew is quite good as well.
As for beer, I usually buy Yuengling Black & Tan, a good, reasonably priced dark beer. When I'm out it depends on the bar. The closest hole in the wall has Newcastle for $3. At my favorite dart bar I drink Shiner Bock. Sundays out for the dart draw at Nashvegas they have Yuengling Porter, a bit heavier than Black & Tan. They also have a local brew on tap. Yeeha Dunkel is a very tasty German-style dark beer.
Loves me some Guinness too!

So is Strohs still around? I drank quite a bit of it when I lived in Tennessee in the early 80s.

I would like a Guinness too, if it had any taste to it......

Sorry, but IMO, most over rated beer on this planet. I avoided the amazing stouts that are available simply because of Guinness.

Oro Brewing in Mesa AZ makes a stout that is simply amazing. Great Basin Outlaw Milk Stout is pretty over the top too in the taste department too.

Interesting, Rich. I like a properly poured Guinness. A lot. But as my father used to say "if I thought you were right , I couldn't agree with you more!"

Ed,

A lot of people have told me the same thing about Guinness......but to my taste buds, no matter how it is served, poured, etc., it come off dry, bland, and no real taste. There are some other craft brews that I hear nothing but praise and I find bland at best.

And I know there are some beers I find very good, are not well received by other people. Brew Kettle White Rajah comes to mind. I find White Rajah to be an amazing beer.....other people have very unflattering comments about the taste.

I do find the difference in people's taste in beer to be interesting.....

For whatever that is worth

My go to stout has to be Southern Tier Mocha.... unbelievable!

Here in Canada's wine country, we're enjoying the Grape and Wine festival! So I'm enjoying a glass of local Baco Noir sitting in my studio working on some music for someone! Hopefully tomorrow I can get out for a ride, as the weather here has been spectacular!!!

Today it's been a couple tins of Fracture imperial IPA. 9.1 percent so they're great sippers. Managed to get all the BSA's wiring off the bike, and started sizing wiring to build a new loom. Will save that for a non drinking day however! Now, I'm going to sit back and enjoy the rest of the day!! Cheers!!
