^In my opinion, Stella is WAY over rated.

 

I will freely admit that I know nothing about beer, especially compared to the rest of you. But I do enjoy the taste of Stella, so I drink it. I also like Guinness. There are two tastes that really don't go together...

And I say keep doing that Dave. I, for one, don't care for any of the Great Lakes stuff, so I don't get Wally's infactuation with it. I'm sure there are people that don't like Fat Tire (just plain silly).

Yeah, I think taste in beer is really personal. I have a friend who is usually a "beer snob" (I mean that in an endearing way), but she recently went on a tour of the Coors brewery in CO and has now decided that Coors Light is her favorite beer. She said they explained to her that smaller microbreweries were dirty and that they could not control for quality, etc. Whatever, but I'm still not drinking Coors Light!!!

 

Also, I was at a conference in Boston and one of my colleages went to get a beer from the open bar and came back with a Bud Light. I asked why he didn't get a Sam Adams (since it was free and we were in Boston, after all). He said Sam Adams had "too much flavor." D'Oh!!!

Everyone has there own taste. I really don't care for Fat Tire, but that's just my opinion. New Belgium wouldn't be where they are today if people didn't like it.

This weekend was Adam and Ellen's wedding. At the reception I had "a few drinks". lol.

 

Here I am showing off my favorite, an Amaretto sour. I'm pretty sure Heath has a Guiness and Kim has a Sam Adams, but I know nothing about beer, so I could be completely wrong!

If you're wondering where I have been all weekend, I didn't die, I was at friend and fellow BACT and Beer Thread member, Adam's wedding to Ellen. First, the rehearsal dinner on Friday night:

AEWedding011.jpg.06e301c412f163da7f066a4f4372815a.jpg

I end with another #9, and as soon as the glass arrived, I had to go pick up some hotties at the airport.

AEWedding010.jpg.7d06d8b8223beb64116efde00fe3f880.jpg

Adam's sister is still too young to drink, but soon enough she'll be all over the beer thread

AEWedding009.jpg.52d1a57151452302fc0376d1897e3303.jpg

Tim gears up for some pre-Oktoberfest fun

AEWedding006.jpg.cc60043de9cf617bb2ee2a1a5e565043.jpg

Even Leann can't resist the power of the Hoe

AEWedding007.jpg.0bd6b6c3b452d195f513df937ca86e8c.jpg

They used to have Chimay on tap instead! WHAT?! says Tom

AEWedding008.jpg.882849f0bdc3b4498af107afd95ce133.jpg

Followed by Hoegaarten!

AEWedding005.jpg.384a696d1e8f149cd21730fa664cb5bb.jpg

This time Magic Hat #9 on tap for all!

AEWedding004.jpg.b10dbc176af41d574bd23e4310450f9e.jpg

Finally, at the rehearsal dinner (also at the hotel) Adam and Ellen enjoy their last moments of single life...together

AEWedding001.jpg.77671fe4e03bbd41f72f3653c1cad5a2.jpg

First, at the hotel bar I was in need of a beverage after driving thru Connecticut traffic (even though it was only like 8 miles in CT). Sam Adams Summer Octoberfest I guess (the tap said Summer Ale, but the taste was very Octoberfest)

Onto Saturday, the wedding day...with 5 hours of open bar!

AEWedding074.jpg.3f5c17bde4aeca847f828447824d8196.jpg

And we end the reception with some espresso...with Sambuca!

Even the groom had some time for drinking

AEWedding049.jpg.7403c6632caeb2041a46365294407da6.jpg

This hot little number (taken, sorry boys!) enjoyed her amaretto sours something fierce!

AEWedding048.jpg.c2434256f2191f3a6d031d808f870f9d.jpg

It tasted like old books you keep in the attic or basement

AEWedding047.jpg.6b8eb4a2982dbd8cc310f1c5b001ecbf.jpg

I decided to pretend to be classy and drink some red wine

AEWedding041.jpg.51765c85d1916c9698a2c9ee02b7cb26.jpg

But I'll wash it down with some Bass

AEWedding040.jpg.65e38c9692a8db536dea21c5b34bdc7a.jpg

I'm not sure what it tastes like

AEWedding039.jpg.4c07e00e35d04450247e3c6afb4e782a.jpg

I was told it tastes like spinach

AEWedding038.jpg.b65b952a30766773896c7636f3a1ccf6.jpg

I'm going to eat this orchid

Kim comes up for air

Enough to do some making out! :D

AEWedding042.jpg.6fd52a8c02fae60a8bdae593b4d8109f.jpg

I wonder how much Heath had so far?

AEWedding034.jpg.8087fc98321e512c18181765c0c7e0ce.jpg

and some Bass for me

AEWedding033.jpg.1beeb48361d115fbcfe9673c94b4af06.jpg

Out to mingle, more beer for Tom

AEWedding035.jpg.ce6653579a631997628ef64375ccff31.jpg

Tom couldn't decide, so he had one of everything

AEWedding032.jpg.5d39609c5ce99f13c4c7d2d65fa5fc36.jpg

They had a really nice quality selection on tap

AEWedding031.jpg.2fd8ece7de54058ada5048868eac40a4.jpg

At the reception, I enjoy a Sam Adams in the Bridal Suite

"Its not beer, but its alcohol!"

After the ceremony, the best man popped the bubbly

But the party didn't stop there! Next was the unofficial BACT Attack on the hotel bar!

AEWedding101.jpg.33e2dfc657386cb17af2e3f7b7ff2def.jpg

and after getting out of her dress, Ellen and Adam come down for one final drink with their friends before shoving out for Walt Disney World

AEWedding102.jpg.d6ea3ea6236c0e1a2114f5c8ae751146.jpg

Even Walt, Todd, and Krista join us

AEWedding103.jpg.57056f07bd97cf0691083d79affac8a2.jpg

The regulars kick back a few Sammy's too

After driving thru Connecticut and NYC traffic, by the time I got home I was ready for another new brew.

AEWedding191.jpg.16d50c6fac38c166f157cd5789262d84.jpg

But when it warmed up a bit, it was really tasty!

AEWedding190.jpg.8c3fd27c623c7ea5945bb798d9f4b768.jpg

I wasn't sure about the taste at first, seemed too much alcohol

AEWedding189.jpg.752003d7d7280eaafc1381e228792e4f.jpg

Nicole, that pic did turn out pretty good didn't it?

 

Wally, what's up with all the bottles of Stone IPA man? I thought you were retiring form beer. Don't tell me that your trip to Stone rekindled your love for the good stuff.

 

Over Labor Day weekend, I stopped into a 7-11 in Carlsbad and not only did they have 22 bombers of Stone 10th IPA but bombers of Fat Tire as well. IN THE FREAKING 7-11! Needless to say Kim is working on her job transfer now.

Again, congrats to Adam! Poor bastard.....

 

Here's what I was up to last week while the wife was out of town.....I've just about finished off my Sam Adam's Brewmaster collection.

 

Is anyone else getting little red x's for my pics? They were all up last night...

I passed out shortly after this picture, from pure New Belgium happiness!!!

^More like poor Ellen!

Its never too late to start drinking for the night!

 

Tonight's selection was from Terrapin Brewing in Athens, GA I wasn't expecting much because its a pilsner, but it really surprised me. A nice mixture of hops, sweetness like a Belgian, and a decent finish. This was some good stuff!

beer09180602.jpg.a2d734ea31304c6ed6d6497d6edf0691.jpg

Definitely something I'll look into getting the next time I'm in Georgia (or Frederick, MD) Thanks, Heath!

beer09180601.jpg.0d2eb30bc443ad5344d5fb5a0f3c0194.jpg

I can't quit beer man. I'm mainly watching what I eat and trying to exercise everyday to cut the weight to reduce the strain in my back. My beer intake has dropped dramatically though.

 

I can't quit you... I mean beer.

Had a Moosehead, Dos Equis, and Michelob after work today, only one I kinda liked was the Michelob.....the others were just not right.

 

 

Oh, and it'll be a while before ANYONE in this town gets some Pumpkinhead, the distributor won't have it out here for at least another week. I'll be frequenting BevMo and Whole Foods and Trader Joe's to see if they have it yet though!

The BevoMo here in Sac already has a whole pallet of it.

Correct. Well I like Stella. Here in Belgium Stella is like the regular everyday beer. Everyone drinks it
