Talking

Nothing, but an old friend stopped by an gave me a quart of Apple Pie in a jar. Made with Shine.
Apple Pie in a Jar Drink

"This tastes just like apple pie! Great in the autumn around a campfire or on a hay-ride. Put it in canning jars with rings and lids for that down-home country appeal."
INGREDIENTS:
1 gallon apple cider
1 gallon apple juice
6 (3 inch) cinnamon sticks
1 1/2 cups white sugar, or to
taste
1 (1 liter) bottle 190 proof grain
alcohol (such as Everclear(TM
))
DIRECTIONS:
1. Place the apple cider, apple juice, cinnamon sticks, and sugar into a large pot. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat, stirring until the sugar has dissolved. Remove from the heat, and discard the cinnamon sticks. Allow the mixture to cool to room temperature, then stir in the grain alcohol. Pour into quart-size canning jars, seal with the lids and rings, and refrigerate until ready to serve.

I love Apple Pie! It is so smooth, you don't taste the alcohol. I'm trying to be good and not drink, but that sure is tempting

Rusty Nails. They go well with action, thriller, and - well - most movies.

Dale's Pale Ale.

Super hoppy, but not real heavy. 6.5% abv, $13.99 for a 12 pack of 12oz cans. Buzz starts Midway through #3.

Pairs well with pastrami on multi grain with mayo and cheap American cheese.

Pale ales are so trendy. I keep waiting for everyone to wake up and realize that while it IS fun to say "pale ale" they taste terrible.

There's a beergarten near us that I go to a few times a year, and all they have on tap is pale ales. I end up getting a red wine.

Lager all the way.

It's an acquired taste, to be sure. I used to revile the bitterness, but now I prefer it. If you can get past the first one, Glatt, they are typically more complex and tasty than a one dimensional lager. Not calling you simple, as I'm sure you weren't calling me trendy. Just pointing out that they do have more to offer than a squinched up face.

Tonight there is an open bar tab for the band, as we do one set of Blues Brothers songs at 9, and then drink until when.

I won't be drinking cos I have to drive an hour home and then wake up tomorrow and spend 5 hours preparing the whole T-giving feast.

I simply hate the taste of beer. I've never been able to develop a taste for it

Oh, I'll still drink it. Nothing better than a cold miller light in a hot shower, but if I'm drinking to get festive, I can't drink enough to get buzzed.

Yeungling is my go to beer at the bar cuz it's cheap... but it makes me fart all day afterwards.

As for bitter beers, Dogfish 90 minute IPA is one of the best, and strongest. Troegs perpetual is also a good one. Victory Hop devil and Hop Wallop are excellent as well.

Duvell Belgian ale is a good tweener. Try that some time.

I drink beer cuz it's the cheapest route to Happytown, not cuz I like the taste...If I drank for the taste, I wouldn't be drinking Bud Light, that's fer damn sure.

I've identified LaBatts ice in 24oz cans to be the cheapest ticket to buzztown. You get 12 for $11.99. That's like 50c per regular 12oz can. It's 5.1%abv.

drink 2 quickly and you're on your way.
