Re: Comfort Drinks

Drinking beer from a 750ml. In NZ, a wooden crate of a dozen longnecks used to be one of the most common ways to buy beer. As a student, standing around sipping from one outside on a sunny day was part of the scenery. Also, while I was single living in Sydney, buying and drinking a longneck while I ...

Re: Drunk Travel Log

Sounds fantastic. I’ve been a bit suspicious about NO because my friend got mugged there; and my brother was drinking in a bar there when a guy who’d just been stabbed stumbled in bleeding all over the place. So, I figured it was kinda rough. Algiers Point looks pretty cool, though. I’ll have to put...

Re: Beer, Bourbon and BBQ Fest 2019

That looks really fun. But, did you go in winter? Barbq in winter seems a bit odd. I see there’s one in Knoxville in July. That would be cool.

Re: 2018 Vegas Trip

Thanks for the report Artful, but... umm... you all go to Vegas and we get a story about pancakes and hash browns? Sounds like you were really bouncing off the walls! We all made a pact to never discuss certain things that may or may not have happened. There was a lot of urine involved, and even so...

Re: FAVORITE BEER (high-end/low-end)?

So disappointed. No Coopers Stout? I love that shit if I can ever find it. Nice licorice crack and easily swillable. I was thinking tap beer. With takeaways there’s a lot more choice. Generally Aust beers are not the cheapest and Coopers is semi-craft. However on tap Coopers Green is widely availab...

Re: Malts and other cheap strong blasters

In New Zealand you get a lot of craft beer in plastic bottles. Traditionally flagons, or riggers, as they’re sometimes known, were the cheapest way to buy takeaway beer and were fairly uninspiring. Nowdays, it seems, small breweries produce kegs rather than going to the expense of bottling. So, you ...

Re: 2018 Vegas Trip

Actually, so do you in the middle pic. So, I guess it is the flash. Or is there some werewolf thing you’re not telling us about? Your avatar looks kinda like a werewolf polar bear, now that I look at it.

Re: 2018 Vegas Trip

Nice pics.

Maybe it’s the flash, but that blonde chick has eyes like she’s just beginning the transformation into a werewolf.

So how did it go?

Did anyone clean up or lose their shirt?

Re: FAVORITE BEER (high-end/low-end)?

High end: Stone & Wood Pacific Ale. It has a hint of pear in the nose which makes it smashable. Not that I’d know. It’s twice the price for a case as the sort of beer I drink, so I’ve never smashed it, really. Just the odd schooner here and there. Low end: depends where I am. Back home it would be S...
