5500 year-old Chemical Evidence of Beer
If you believe the NY Times, it dates back to Iran, circa 3500 BCE. I have a friend whose beer knowledge is much more extensive than mine and he was telling me about somebody attempting to brew beer from an ancient Chinese recipe they extrapolated from running a chemical analysis on an old jug. I'll ask him about it, see if he can provide a link and I'll get back to you.

RE: ALCOHOL
It's Saturday! Yay!!
   
I usually shop at a soft-discounter. Their policy is: Having the lowest prices in the neighborhood by limiting the choices. It's a philosophy I subscribe so I shop there. So what you see here is a "small" choice of Belgian beer. Wink
   
Today I choose "Gulden draak". Fancy shrink-warped bottle.
Strong! 10,5%! Sweet taste and very faint acid. Smooth to drink. Tasty but dangerous liquid due to it's smoothness/strongness. IMHO it lacks some character. 4/6

Yeah I heard the "liquid bread" bit. Didn't know it came from the Egyptians.

@cfhm
That's one beer I would love to try any day of the week. Smile

Nice! I just got off working my two job day, so I'm pouring one of the last two bottles I have of my favorite beer-Lakefront's Holiday Spice Lager. My buddy bought a six pack and stashed it away at the end of the holiday season so he could give it to me for my birthday a month ago. An excellently smooth mix of bananas, citrus, hops and clove that needs a heavy pour for a decent head.
Gulden Draak is on my tour list, I should be hitting it up in late april or may. I've been looking forward to it, I hear good things. Hope you enjoy(ed)! And on a side note, your daughter is adorable.

My friend hasn't gotten back to me, but if they succeed and distribute that stuff, I will certainly have my eye out for it.

Thats intersting. I wonder if they already used spices like hop to give it flavour.

I like the seasons-beer as well. heartwarming when it frezes. But as soon as thaw sets in the become to "heavy" to drink.

This one is different. The flavor flows better and it's not as heavy as most winter beers, it's more medium bodied and well-rounded. I could drink it any time of the year.

RE: ALCOHOL
Well, didn't expect to steer away from beer, lol, but I tried something new and alcoholic yesterday. It was a carbonated sake served cold from a local Japanese hibachi place. I have had warm sake (yum!) but never cold, and definitely never carbonated. It was like a champagne almost, slightly sweet ending, definitely tasty.

RE: ALCOHOL
Beer and saki, separately or together in a saki bomb.

I don't handle most hard liquors well but something about raw fish enhances the effect of the saki without having to go over board and something about the saki enhances the taste of the fish.

I also love sangria maybe because it's light and has fruit in it.

You're brave. Pot is one thing. Shrooming is a scary concept for me.

RE: ALCOHOL
Ahhh, fellow shroomer. I personally prefer LSD blotter, but shrooms are ok also. And as all of you can see on my avatar, I also smoke every day. Concerning alcohol, I drink beer and whiskey. I don't smoke cigarettes .

P.S.
You wouldn't believe how LSD or shrooms can open your eyes concerning religions... I know a guy who almost became a priest (roman-catholic), he finished theological college and was on his way of becoming one-of-them and then he tried LSD. Now he is the biggest atheist ever and he takes LSD and smokes weed regularly. So, it only took one dose to open his eyes. A dangerous one dose, but still, now he has seen the light and can be saved. All it took is a bit of risk.
