    Beer.

    After a long week for cyclone fans, Its Friday. Work is over and it is time to throw a couple back. I am going to buy a few 6 packs tonight, and wanted to see who could give me the best recommendation. Straying away from my normals which happen to recently be, Newcastle, Guiness Extra Stout, Red Stripe, and leinenkugel creamy dark and wheat.

    Re: Beer.

    I wish I could get a Great Lakes Christmas Ale, great beer.

    A Blue Moon sounds great as well.

    Re: Beer.

    Not sure what anyone else thinks about it, other than I know BrianHos probably doesn't like it cause you can still see through the glass once poured. But Beach Bum, the Budweiser seasonal brew isnt bad.

    We first had it when we toured the plant last summer in ST Louie, and it was su-poib. It's worth picking up a six pack to try at least.

    Re: Beer.

    I must recommend this:

    Delirium Tremens - Brouwerij Huyghe - Beer Advocate

    But good luck finding it.

    I know the Happy Gnome bar in St. Paul, MN has in on tap. One of the best beers I've ever had. It also has won "Best Beer in the World" at various contests.

    Brewers Website:

    http://www.delirium.be/

    Oh, and, YES, it is 9.0 ABV

    As you should. Miller may be the the worst scourge on this earth since the plague. However, unlike the plague, it is a silent killer of good taste that has insidiously worked its way into mainstream society.
