Funny, I will now take back the comment I made last post Wink

Asashi has apparently been making some new line of beers, based off of craft beer styles.  Apparently the second installment in this series is Asashi's "Dry Pale Ale".  I saw this beer at the convenience store, so I grabbed a few cans and was impressed.  The beer was reasonably priced, and quite hoppy and flavorful, compared to the other choices available in these parts.  This is about as close to craft beer as I can find here, without searching out some specialty shop, I hope this one stays around and isn't just some summer exclusive, like they usually do with importing beers into Taiwan (basically in the summers the convenience stores import a larger variety of imported beers, but during the spring, fall and winter we are stuck with dregs).  This one is a keeper, and I am quite surprised by that.  I wonder what other beers in this series will come out.

On another note, TTL (Taiwan Tobacco and Liquor) just released a Honey Lager.  I had high expectations for it, since another local restaurant makes a honey craft beer; however, TTL got it wrong and their version sucks.  To me, it just tastes like their weak lager with some honey added into it...not particularly good.  On another note, I actually (accidently) insulted the guy in charge of the quality control at TTL, about three years ago, but that is a story for a different time Wink

I had a Toņa with dinner last night in Nicaragua. Still not a beer guy, but it's dirt cheap here. That said, I gave the other half of it to my friend and ordered a rum and coke instead.

Hard alcohol, the forbidden fruit.  Cool

Haha just kidding. I'm not missing anything but messy sloppy times. I can't just have a couple so I avoid it at all costs. The last beer I had was a Faxe which was about a week ago.

Went to the sushi place nearby and they apparently don't serve Asahi anymore...

Had a Heineken instead.

Consider yourself lucky  Wink  Heineken is a much better beer than Asashi...

Asahi Black beer is pretty much the only Asahi beer to drink for me.  Light brings back bad memories..

In an effort to cut my consumption down even more I decided to give some low alcohol beer a go. I had 2 0.5% beers the other day. Honestly, not too bad, and I even got a little pretend buzz from them haha.

Around 2010 I had somehow contracted C-Diff, and my doctor had originally misdiagnosed it, saying I had Chrohn's Disease or Colitis.  He gave me a large list of items not to eat, including the following:

-fried foods
-raw vegetables
-alcohol
-caffeine (so no tea, no chocolate)
-dairy products

It was nuts, as it seemed I couldn't eat or drink anything! 

Later I had more tests done, and after the true cause for my problem was revealed, I went through several drugs until I finally got cleared up. 

Why am I sharing this?  Well, during that time I had decided to give non-alcoholic beer a try, as well as non-alcoholic wine.  I personally felt the beer tasted better than the wine.  Although not nearly as good or with as much variety as craft beer, for example, the non-alcoholic beer available (I had found lager as well as one other type, I forget) wasn't bad, to everyone's surprise.

Yeah, low alcohol wine sucks for anything other than cooking.

Last night I had a few budweisers and a few brewhouse(cheap beer) and got fairly intoxicated for te firs time in a while. It was a good night. The morning however sucked. I had a major headache which is something I haven't got from alcohol in a while. I guess that means I have flushed it from my system.

That's great news though, I think! 

In the near future, I think I am going to be drastically cutting back my alcohol intake.  I really need to lose some weight before I go to Japan, or I will literally get murdered in my sleep by roommates for snoring loudly.  And I know drinking beer is definitely one of the large players stopping me from my weight loss goals.
