I went to Bells a few months ago, had never even heard of it until a work associate and I had to go to Kalamazoo. Their Stouts are some of the best I've ever had.

Excuse me, I'm making perfect sense. You're just not keeping up.

I have the luck of being born in Kalamazoo.... So, when the brewery opened up - we heard about it right away.... Back in the 80's you could buy a "cube" of Bell's Amber - (it was a plain cardboard box, with a plastic bladder inside - like todays "box of wine --- it contained about 3 gallons -- for about 8 bucks.....

A riding bro of mine and I were on our Nortons - cruising about - with an open cube of Bells on the back of my buddy's bike-- we'd drank about half of it -- when we got pulled over.

The cop obviously hadn't been to Bells -- he had no idea we were hammered and running around with a bigassed open container right out in the open....

Oh man, I want a cardboard box full of Bells Bourbon Stout. I live a few hours from it, and I'd gladly make that trip for 3 gallons of that stuff. You've only recently been able to buy any Bells in my area, and most of the good stuff isn't bottled.

I haven't seen the cubes in years. Of course, I quit going to the brewery when it became commonplace in stores around here. I guess I should ride down sometime and see if I can get a cube to honor Monk's (the bud from my story) memory... He's been gone over 20 years now.....

But if I'm drinking domestic, I'll have a coors light (first choice) or a miller light (second) or a blue moon (other first choice - with a goddamn orange, dammit). I do like Dos Equis if I'm at a Mexican restaurant and I need something low on abc to drive home - and there better be a damn lime.
It will have to be a hot guy that I don't want to offend because he's been a gentleman enough to buy me a beer for me to even partially drink a Bud Light - and it will damn near ruin your chances with me to see you drinking one.
My ex drinks "only" Bud Light if he is having a beer - but we started dating before I knew I'd grown out of my allergy to brewer's yeast. I don't understand why people will willingly drink deer piss when there are much better options available, many times at a much more affordable price.

At the moment I'm drinking Blue Pants Brewery "Wheat with Peach" - a seasonal offering from my hometown. It's not the best, but beats the domestics any day. (Not all peaches come from Georgia - just good marketing.)


I've already had chianti on my you're fuck hot, I'm hot, social propriety mandates we not get naked, not quite date. Still deciding if I'm gonna have a nut brown ale from Blackstone Brewery. I'm well above the legal limit. Autocorrect is certainly my friend. Listening to some KICK ASS music, though. I love my city. So fucking much.


Sometimes I wish we all still lived in caves.

I think we need to party.

RE: Favorite Beers
Yeah, I don't drink big domestics any more. When I do, it's local stuff.

My favorite summer beer is Fireman's #4 Blonde Ale, from the Real Ale Brewing Co out of Blanco, TX. It drinks like a lager, but is more flavorful. Gosh, it will cool you down, too.

Favorite winter brew is New Belgium's Portage porter, thick brown goodness in a bottle, chocolately-coffee overtones.

Really like Leffe, but it is sooo expensive over here Sad

RE: Favorite Beers
I live in Boston, as the screen name implies. Close enough to Vermont that there's usually some of their really boutique micro-brew stuff floating around my social circle. The Alchemist's Heady Topper is alleged to be the best Double IPA on the planet. I've had it a dozen times. It is DAMN good, but I'm wary of calling ANYTHING the best on the planet - that's a bold claim since who can realistically claim to have had ALL the beers on the planet?

Anyway for really special occasions I love a good Firestone Walker Sucaba - it's a barrel-aged barley wine style ale. So incredibly complex and amazing.

For everyday drinking/refreshment I can always dig:

Troeg's Nugget Nectar
Left Hand Milk Stout
Founders All Day IPA
Jack's Abbey Smoke and Dagger
Narragansett Shandy (made with Del's lemonade - a Rhode Island classic)
Samuel Smith's Oatmeal Stout
Guinness - it's the world's most ubiquitous stout for a reason
Ithaca Flower Power IPA
Rogue Dead Guy
Longtrail Double Bag
Anchor Steam
Cigar City Jai Alai IPA

I also brew my own beer, which I generally prefer over just about anything commercially produced, though unfortunately I haven't had as much time for it lately.
