    • I had a buddy in college,... now 20 years back,... who was from Uganda, part of the peace keeping force, dude had stories for days. He was older (like 27ish at the time) but whatever,... anyway he’d keep his cases of beer in the closet and say, ‘drink it motto like a real man!!’ Motto in his language meant warm or room temperature,.... I chilled with my boy so often that to this day I can drink anything warm or room temp,... no thing. I really would like to know what ended up happening to Egaunza, he was great people but long to short,...

      You could leave a Highlife in the sun for two days and I could drink it normal.

            I too appreciate room temp beer, high life in particular.

            • Hey ACamp, keep an eye out for St Arnold Pumpkinator. Just released over here, and our HEB had it in the business center since it's so popular. Might be worth asking the beer/wine rep of your local store.

                • Wild Basin hard seltzer after a little red wine with some pizza tonight. Earlier I went to Save the World, who was 1 of 2 Austin area breweries who placed at GABF. Good beer but even better deals (if you remember to bring your old glass).

                    • Mama brought home a Stone variety pack from Costco. I'm not really a Stone fan besides Enjoy By's but this has a couple I've never had. Fear Movie Lions DIPA and Cosmic Runestone IPA.

                      Just finished the Cosmic. It's really good. Drinks like a light DIPA and you can definitely taste the juniper they say it favors. It's also on the sweet side in the middle before finishing dry. The FML is supposed to be good per BA so I've saving that for some tri tip tonight.

                      The other two in the case are standard IPA, (meh) and Delicious which is even more meh.

                      It's amazing how much better Stone IPA is at the brewery vs in bottles. Biggest gap in craft beer I've experienced.

                                • I'm stocked for tonight, whether it go well or poorly:

                                  1 can of Dia de Los Muertos inspired Chocolate Bon Bon

                                  Sixer of ABW's Double IPA Lazer Salad

                                  Some hard seltzer during the game

                                  Can of Tropical Salty Lady gose by Martin House

                                  And 1 special thing in case things go well (or to drown my sorrows). But I'm hoping for it going well!

                                      Tropical Salty Lady gose. Excellent variant of the normal Salty Lady. ACamp, I think you'll like.

                                      Basque style cider I picked up on the way after Mass. Good, almost a bit like a wild ale. A bit funky and crisp.

Thanks for commercialism they have partnered with a distillery to make their own St Elmo's Bourbon that just needs cola and a few cherry's. It wont be the same but lucky me!

Had 1 last beer in my old place today, Jolly Pumpkin Oro, which I've had before. They can it now for some reason, but there was a weird after taste that was a bit off putting. Still a good beer, but not as good as I've had before

It's not too cold yet, but people online are freaking out like it's 20 below and not 20 degrees. But the roads are absolutely insane! I know that they don't have snow plows, but they iced over almost immediately and with how many hills are around here and the fact that people were driving regardless, it's pretty much nothing but ice anywhere. It'll get worse overnight once all the churned slush freezes over, but it's already essentially shut down the city. Hell even the 7/11 next door is closed, who knew they ever did that?

                                                                            Anyways I'm mostly alright cause I stocked up on food and whatnot this past Friday. But I didn't get enough, *gulp* beer. How in the world am I gonna last Fat Tuesday without beer? Might need to crack into my "cellar" instead.

                                                                            Anywho, right now I've got some Barrel Aged Ten Fidy I got on sale last Tuesday. This'll keep me warm tonight at least.

Highland Park 12 and Glenfiddich 12 are my go-to. I had McCallan 15 recently. It was ok. I'd like to try the 18. I also tried some Ardbeg 10. That has a very distinct flavor. I liked it, but I'm not sure that could be a daily drinker for me.

                                                                              I've recently enjoyed watching Outlander and drinking a whiskey or two. Anyone have a good suggestion for my next bottle? $50 or less preferably.

I've looked everywhere and can't find those posts (Can't even recall who posted them). I have a $50-$100 short list going and wanted to cross reference.

                                                                                  Thoughts on these:

Pretty tough to find right now and stores here are limiting purchases to a single bottle... when you can find it.

                                                                                    Fortunate that my brothers picked up a bottle to sample before my Lenten abstinence. At about 63% ABV it was soooo smooth.

I received a box with four glasses, a couple of bottles of water to cleanse the pallet and four small bottle of whiskey labeled 1, 2, 3 & 4. There's a tasting chart where you can score them on spice, aromatics, fruitiness/floral, wood and grain. I didn't get to participate that day so I haven't opened them up yet. The rep told me they are Maker's Mark 101, Buffalo Trace, Heaven Hill and Doc Porter Rye. anyone try any of these before?

I've heard so many people rave about it and seen it described as the best IIPA in America, but I wasn't really impressed. It was fairly good, but nothing special at all. There was nothing bad about the flavor, just nothing particularly distinctive or unique. A bit of a disappointment after all the stuff I've heard about how exceptional it is.

I had Buffalo Trace once when I went on a tour of Bourbon distilleries back in '10. It was OK, but not my favorite. Some people really like it though. The tour of the distillery was very interesting and enjoyable.

Did some comps vs the brands I normally buy. Vodka and Canadian Whiskey are very solid as drink mixers, and incredible value. The Vodka was as good or better (in Bloody Mary's and Cranberry/Pineapple) than several higher end brands I normally buy. The Canadian Whiskey was pretty close to Crown for Crown and Cokes/7s. Just no reason to spend more if you enjoy those drinks IMO. The scotch leaves a lot to be desired. Not bad at all, just not near the value of the others. I'll probably still spend more on some of the higher end options. Rarely do scotch or bourbon straight anymore, so not a big deal.
