    Remember Falstaff

    I remember Falstaff mostly from the Saturday Major League Baseball national TV broadcasts announced by Dizzy Dean and Pee Wee Reese. I was a kid during the late 50's and early 60's and I loved watching them more than anything. The advertising was pretty much personal, although there were regular "produced" ads, as well.

    When I was older and started trying beer, I wanted Falstaff. It never really cared for it after actually drinking it.

    Re: Your favorite beer

    Since I've been offline for four days I'm catching up and found this thread really interesting. Since I lived in Germany a couple of years during the long time working for a German company I really cut my teeth in experimentation on better beer there. Since then I've come to enjoy many types and styles of beer.

    I drink more beer in volume each month than bourbon. I live in a college town so when we want to go out for pizza and beer it's Bud at $4.50 to 5.00 per pitcher.

    As Dave said, when someone else is paying I can help them run up their tab quickly with many choices. I've brewed beer (homebrew) and belong to a club where folks bring their homebrew or their regional favorite. Wherever I am I usual try a local beer. So.... I don't have a favorite at all. I really enjoy the variety and the differences!

    I collect beer memorabilia and yesterday I picked up a Wiedemann sign. It was brewed in Newport, KY and was the popular drink of my inlaws. I appreciated Dave's post which took me down memory lane. Those represent some of the signs I have or will pick up when I can find them cheap.

    I try not to let anything with the words "light" attached to it touch my lips, though!

    Your subject "your favorite beer" led everyone to beer while your question was, "what are (you) drinking when not drinking bourbon. My other favorite spirit is tequilla. But I won't lead us into that discussion... And I only drink 100% blue agave.

    Greg,Why is it blue? What is agave? Where can I get some pull-kay? Is it really that sexy?

    Linn,

    Yep, you've read some of my writing elsewhere.


    Life is so full of choices. Do I go home and have a bourbon or a tequila?

    Simple rule. When in Mexico drink tequila. When in Kentucky drink bourbon.

    When at home drink what you feel like and see what happens to your pants.

    Re: Your favorite blue beer

    Speaking of blue beer....

    unlike some of my friends I don't want colored "beer."

    Fruit and beer don't mix.

    Now chocolate.... that's another matter.

    Re: Your favorite blue beer

    Omigawd, Greg - you gave me a flashback to my bad old days, at Coyne's bar in Oakland in Pittsburgh, eating Hershey bars and drinking Stoney's beer with Sam Thompson chasers. Find me a wormhole into the past and BEAM ME UP!

    Re: Your favorite beer

    My non-bourbon non-beer drinks are not nearly as glamourous:

    I have @ home:
    1 bottle Goslings Black Seal Rum
    1 bottle Captain Morgan's Spiced (exclusively for holiday eggnog)
    1 bottle Jose Cuervo Gold
    1 bottle Tequila Nacional (a gift)
    1 bottle Seagrams 7 Crown (for guests)
    1 bottle B**ven** S****h 21 year port wood (another gift)


    I usually have bourbon or beer though, the rest is mostly gathering dust.

    Re: Your favorite beer

    With age comes the appreciation for darker, fuller flavors....be it beer or whiskey etc. I too much prefer darker beers from ales to porters. Most commercial lagers I can hardly stand to drink. I think the age of 35+/- tends to be a turning point for many...taste buds died off or simply turned over!

    Re: Your favorite beer

    On vacation 10 yrs ago in Britain I really enjoyed "Theakstons Ale." It is imported to the U.S. I enjoy Black and Tans (Michael O'Sheas is a U.S. maker). Bass, Harp, Guinness, S. Adams, Goose Island, Anchor etc. Michelob for regular commercial lager.

    Re: Your favorite beer

    Tonight it is a cold, frosty mug of Pilsner Urquell. I am usually more of a porter/stout kind of guy, but this is a nice change of pace.
