Re: APB for Missing Modern Drunkardists

I never posted nearly enough to be in any list, but reading these boards (and occasionally chiming in) was enough to make me feel like I wasn't drinking alone. I spent a lot of days and nights browsing the forums, laughing at the hi-jinks and learning a thing or two about drinking by proxy. Many goo...

Re: Death's Door

Great post, thanks! Do you suppose it's simply adulterated (diluted) to expand it's market share? Fire water is too mature for the young crowds. We've seen Jack D. take that route and it was profitable. I have no "inside info", but my guess is yes. It's probably dumbed down a bit for the average co...

Re: Death's Door

While I agree with everything regarding the philosophy of commercially available "moonshine" and white whiskeys of today, I feel the need to clarify one thing. Death's Door's website may have mentioned the background of the name, but I've no patience for marketing speak. Door County is the admittedl...

With all due respect, you sir are full of shit. Amazon doesn't list any books remotely similar in title to this. Where are you doing your book shopping?

Re: What are you reading now?

Promising and thick. That's what she said. I am well into A Farewell to Arms at the moment. I believe it's scientifically impossible to read that book without a flagon of the finest, cheapest wine available at hand. In honor of next Tuesday's holiday, I'm going to tackle Joyce's Dubliners . To the ...

Here's the last of the whisky and beer to you!

Cheers!
Not at all, I'm actually quite honored! Thank you for the drinks, sir!

Re: Mead?

I have limited experience with mead, but I can attest to the fact that it's most delectable at room temperature in a tall plastic cup. I found a stand at Milwaukee's Irish Fest that was selling Bunratty Mead a few years ago....after several cups of the elixir I thought Irish Wolfhounds were hilariou...

Nature is beautiful at its most violent and chaotic. Embrace the wildness, in the storm and in yourself. And meditate heavily with aid of Johnny Walker. You've got it right. Let it all keep turning.

Re: Land of Amber Waters:The History of Brewing in Minnesota

I had to bump this thread because a few months ago I found myself at Summit Brewery in St Paul and found the book for sale in the gift shop. I took the brewery tour of course (with Travis Bickle and a non-MDM booze lover named Jeff) and guess who the tour guide was? Mr. Doug Hoverson, author of "Lan...

Can I post here? TravisBickle and I used to work at a movie theater and basically ran the place most Saturdays for a couple years. We would cope with undrunkenness during 13 hour shifts by keeping a few bottles stashed upstairs in the projection booth. Oh, hello customer. Your movie is blurry? Let m...

For the entire state of Washington's sake, I certainly hope Matty Hasselbeck isn't planning on making any guarantees next weekend. I think he learned his lesson the first time courtesy of Al Harris.

I can't honestly say I've ever been a sugar daddy for two years for a male friend. I don't even think I've done it for two days. All of my friends have two legs, and I expect them to use them. Except for when they're legless at the bar...then I steal their money and drink it!
