so I've been shopping for a new standard...so far I've enjoyed "Maduro Brown Ale" from Cigar City Brewing

but as the brewery suggests this is a classier heavier beer you might enjoy with a cigar, so when I went ahead and drank 6 in one sitting it made me quite ill

a lighter one I've enjoyed is the "Gentleman's Relish" which sounds like the name of a strip club despite being a kiddy beer at 4.2% (typical of English browns), it's overly creamy, and I can only get it at this one bar blah blah blah

I've just been drinking Shiner Bock in the meantime
Agreed re: the hoppiness - as someone who enjoys good craft beers and ciders I HATE the trend towards overly hoppy. And if you talk to a lot of other people who are into beers, that's the kind they prefer. Sad state of affairs.

Shiner Bock is good stuff. Shiner BLACK Bock used to be my standby - easy drinking. Not even sure how the hell I had it all the time tbh because it's from Texas and I'm in Michigan. My early 20s were a blur.

This conversation would sound gibberish to some people.

I'm not a huge fan of hoppy beers but they can still taste fine even if it's a bit of a shotgun blast to the mouth, and I'd rather drink a double IPA to get turnt than a better tasting beer for the flavor.

I've drank them for sure. But, I'm usually looking to only turnt to about 6 out of 10 decibel levels. And given the choice.... I'll take a non IPA every time. I'll drink Coors Light over most IPA's. That's actually my bar / show preference when nothing good is available.

I'm enjoying one of these tonight. I learned this today. Jesuit Brother Ambroise was apparently Canada's first recorded brewer. What is it with religious folks making beer? The Belgian monastery make crazy potent beer, and now this guy?

I think I've heard about quite a few monastaries making beer or wine, it does appear to be a "thing". Maybe it keeps the lights on.

Or.. lights off? For the meditation.

Keeps that water bill paid anyhow, they seem to garden often.

Oh god gross. I do not have a discerning palate but there's still something wholesome to any kind of craft beer whereas a Bud, Coors, Miller, etc tastes sickly and unpleasant. I mean I drink almost entirely malt liquor but that's because I drink for effect and don't care to spend more. After a certain volume it tastes fine anyway. Except corporate piss beers are like water to me so I'd have to force myself to chug them continuously to get anything but a vague buzz.

I feel the same way about Molson and Labatt.

Despite people up here talking smack about American beer, there is a TON of great beer south of us.

Dogfish Head in Delaware, Rogue in Oregon, the gagillion beers Sam Adams make, Alchemist in Vermont. Those are just a few breweries from whom I've sampled their stuff. I like Lakefront in Wisconsin as well. Americans make the best IPAs. Dogfish with their 60 minute, Alchemist with their Focal Banger, they're just awesome.

There's also this one.

I'm just drinking bloody marys again anyways.

Beer doesn't cut it some weeks.

Sometimes I need to remind myself that I want a house on 10 acres in the next 10 years, way more than I want an easy breezy low responsibility career now. So like.. buck up, buttercup. Whiny little bitch. Get **** done, son. House on 10 acres. Be a sheep or live the dream?
