That's really a weird coincidence.
I usually don't drink beer, but today I felt like it and you make a thread about it.  :crazy:

I just had 2 cans of Yebisu and 2 cans of Asahi (500ml each). (I'd prefer German beer, but I drink what I can get here.)
I think I drank it a bit too fast, because I'm feeling the effects already. I hope my typing isn't affected too much. (I'll check back tomorrow.  :D )

I really don't drink much at all.  But I was at a wedding last weekend and there was an open bar, so I figured why not.  Had a Coors Lite (awful!) and a Yuengling (not bad!).

'Black Butte' porter; One of my favourite locals. It has a froth-y, almost stout-like texture and a deep, burnt cocoa character to it. I miss being able to have a Caffrey's though, and I could surely go for a pint of Hen's Tooth right about now... I can find the draught-style cans (better than bottles) from time-to-time, but there's none to be had on draught locally/  :bomb:

I really see it more as an entire drink category.  Like water, soda, juice, milk, tea.  There's also beer.  (and wine, and liquor).  I didn't really drink much of anything alcoholic until I was 28, so I'm not drinking just to get buzzed.  I'm just bored of always ordering a Coke or unsweetened iced tea when I go out :P

You guys over in Europe and Scandinavia are lucky. You will not find Tuborg in America, wont find Leffe in that style, etc...

Although we do have some of the best micro-breweries. I just tried Dogfish Heads winter Beer and its delicious, and like 12% alcohol!  :o

If we could expand this to "alcolholic beaverage" instead of "beer" ...

On Monday night, I had my first drink out at a friend's fire. UV blue mixed with lemonade. Two jars of it and I was good to go (already high though, so that's probably a factor). You call it a pussy drink, I call it tasty. :P

I am drinking a bottle of 7-11 Cabernet Sauvignon.  This is actually supposed to be one of my "off days" for drinking (try to drink only on the weekends and on Thursdays, my off day, through the week) but was just feeling a bit frustrated tonight and needed a drink.

Before that, my last beer was a microbrew's dunkel.  Before that I had some Belgians, and some German weizen beer and a hoppy "Czech-styled Pilsner" from another microbew.  Made my own brews for about 2 years or so, and just love to drink finely-crafted beer.  Usually don't drink to a terribly drunk point anymore, tipsy at best is usually my max by now. Just a sign of getting older I guess.

New Castle Brown Ale.  Leftovers my father-in-law brought a few weeks ago.  If I'm picking the beer (and I have the cash), I'll pick up a Trappiste ale like Rocheforte 6.

Where is that beer from?

I remember drinking Polish beer all the time while in Germany.  My one German friend's parents lived in Cotbus, near the Polish border, and he would always cross over and bring back some beer for us when he went to visit his folks.

Now I am drinking 7-11 beer, titled "The Beer".  Cheap, but not very tasty.  Trying to scale back financially at the end of the month, hehe.

Last beer I had was a Shock Top Honeycrisp Apple Wheat!

It was actually the first beer I have EVER actually liked. I absolutely hate the taste of Hops, so finding Shock Top is amazing so now I have an option when I dont want to pay exorbitant prices for Strongbow or other ciders  ;D

Why don't they send those Japanese beers to Taiwan?  We just get the shitty Japanese beers here, piss water is how I like to think of them, same with the local Taiwan brews, Korean brews, and Chinese brews.  Right now the best thing I have access to at the convenience store is Becks, which isn't saying much, since they are quite low on my list of German beers.

I used to like lagers a lot, but by now, so many of them just taste flavorless to me. I would love to try my old favorite German lagers again, fresh and on tap in Germany, to see if my opinion of them would have changed by now or not. 

Last beer I drank was a local Taiwanese beer.  It really doesn't do much for me, but neither do the more expensive imported beers readily available here, so why not go local?  I remember visiting that brewery when I first arrived in Taiwan, and I got a special tour, after the production manager had found out that I brew my own beer as a hobby.  He asked what I thought of the Taiwanese beer made from his company, and I was a bit more honest than I should have been, oops!   :-[

I like Radler too...I first had that in Germany.  Fun fact:  It is named for the word Rad, or wheel, basically as a bicycler's drink so that they could drink and ride.  Hehe.  At least that's what my German friends had always told me.

I drank a 4 pack of Cass last night, a crappy beer from South Korea.  I never saw the beer before, and the convenience store recently got it in.  That stuff was terrible, and today I have a mild hangover, bit of a stomachache,  and the beer shits.  Grr...

And that is how you know if the quality of beer is good or bad.  Last weekend I went up to Taipei and went to a beer festival, where I sampled about 50 different craft beers.  The size of the samples varied, but needless to say, I ended up getting drunk, and so did everyone I think.  But I woke up fine the next morning, no headache, hangover, or anything, since the beers were top quality and had ingredients in them that end up reducing the effect of hangover the next morning.

What's that for? I already drink pretty fast sometimes, but I've heard of some people taking a whole glass of beer in one shot. Drinking that fast you can't possibly enjoy it that much can you (unless it's nomihoudai and you want value for your money)?

I drink pretty fast. I dont chug beer or anything, but a bottle of beer is usually no more than 5-10 sips depending on how thirsty I am. This is why I shouldn't really drink alcohol.

Ah well...

I love trying different beers, and one of my hobbies when vacationing is checking out the local breweries around.  With the Asian side of things, most of the mass produced beers suck, but I have still tried most of the ones I could find here, from Thailand, Laos, Korea, Taiwan, China, Japan, etc -- this is my attempt to see if I can find which beers offer the best flavor, for the cheapest price.  Even among the crappy beers, some rate higher than others imo. 

Over the weekend I was actually at a beer festival, and most of the beers were brought in from breweries around Asia; however, this was a craft beer convention and most of the samples I had were of an excellent quality.  I wish the macrobreweries could produce beers of such a high quality. 

Also, I am not really a big fan of Molsen.  I only had it once or twice, but that was enough for me.

Oh I know Karlovach, and I know radler-style beer.  The radler I know is from Germany though, mixed with orange or sprite.  Considered a bicyclists's beer, since there was less alcohol.  I'd like to try that one Smeg, but I don't think I'll ever find it for sale around these parts.

A few nights ago I had drank a few shots of some Taiwanese Lychee Vodka.  It is quite nice, imo.  I still have about half a bottle left, but I won't be able to touch it until next weekend, I think.  Yesterday I felt really sick, went to doctor, was put on medicine.  So no drinking alcohol for this boy until the medicine is out of my system!  Sucks too, since this was a three-day holiday, and the weather is nice, so why did I have to get sick now?   :(

IPA...is that one made in Iceland or where?  That looks really good...I haven't had a good IPA in about a year or two, so hard to find in Taiwan.

Last beer I had was Bit Burger, a lager from Germany.  They started carrying it here in Taiwan for the summer, and this brew really brings back memories, as I had drank it a lot on tap when living in Germany.  Now I don't really drink lager anymore (prefer more flavorful, stronger beers), but this really hit the spot after running, and was good for memories too.  Gotta stock up on these once I get paid.  ;)

I actually can easily get a few ciders from Sweden here in Taiwan.  I love apple cider in particular, as I come from an apple region in the USA.  However, some of the Swedish ciders have been getting a bit too sweet for me as of late...good when I first drank them, but too sweet now.  I hope this change doesn't mark some internal body changes as well.

Swedish food and drinks are generally sweeter than in more southern countries. Many foreigners thinks Swedish candy is too sweet anyway. I think it has to do with the fact that it's a northern country (more energy is needed when it's cold). However my friends from Iraq eats some really really sweet pastry that's too sweet for me.

That's quite interesting.  I've always liked sweet things, but the last time I had one of the Swedish ciders, it tasted almost syrupy.  And that just made me feel like I was going to get diabetes or something, so I stopped drinking it.  I forget the brand though.

I like that style, how is that particular beer?  I always that Japan sucked at making beer, but then I had visited several Japanese brewery stands at a beer festival in Taipei, and had tasted some pretty good craft beer from Japan, among the crap. 

I don't have to work tomorrow until quite late in the afternoon, so I am drinking some beer and cleaning the apartment.  Now I am having a strong stout from one of the Danish breweries...not really my favorite, but at 8% alcohol it is acceptable if I want to have a merry time.

The Belgi isn't *technically* beer.  It's a "beer flavored liquor", which just means that it was made in such a way as to avoid Japan's harsh taxes on beer. 

As far as hopposhu (the beer flavored liquors) drinks go, it's definitely one of the better ones.  Pour it in a nice beer glass, serve it at an appropriate temperature and it's pretty good. 

I wouldn't say that Japan makes shit beer, but pretty much all of the popular brews are *very* mediocre.  And at like 300 yen *per can* it's not really a good value. 

Kirin used to have a REALLY good Stout, but when it came back, the formula had changed.  Now it's undrinkable.  It's like three parts Guinness Extra Stout, one part yesterday's black coffee.  :( 

Tonight, I'm going with actual beer.  Typhoon's comin' and I don't need them to dig my body out of the wreckage surrounded by cheap fake beer.  I want 'em to dig me out of the ruins of my apartment,  EMPTY Asashi Super Dry can clutched in one hand, Dogbone controller in the other.  Yee-haw!

I'm honestly not sure that I would consider Asashi Super Dry as being a good beer.  Asashi is actually one of the Japanese brands heavily imported in Japan, and aside from one or two, they all just taste like water to me; however, I am not one to criticize one's personal taste in brews, and am also one that never turns down free beer ;)  Whenever I make it to Japan, I want to go Famicom game hunting and maybe tour / visit some of the local breweries.  I know, I am so cultured when visiting foreign countries  ;D

I just ran out and came back, and am drinking a Bear Beer Strong Lager, which taps in at 7.7% alcohol.  By looking at the can, this one was made in Germany but by a subsidiary of the Danish Harboe brewery company.  Definitely not my favorite beer by a long shot, but there is a special going on in Taiwan, basically a tall four pack for $1.70 per can, or just shy of $7 total.  Considering the other options available and prices, this one offered the best bang for the buck, so that is what I grabbed.

Yay for not working mornings for Wednesdays, Thursdays, and Fridays this July.   :)

7% something beer is quite common in Sweden too. I don't like it though as it tastes mostly alcohol (of course after a number of beers it doesn't matter anymore).

Someone got a bottle of Hitachino Nest White Ale for my wife since it has an owl on it (http://i.imgur.com/ZLHsrn4l.jpg).  She didn't like it very much (tastes too much like beer).  I enjoyed it, though (tasted like beer ;D).

For the new year I decided to make the infamous resolution again, of losing weight.  Oh, and an upcoming half marathon in March also made me realize that I need to do something about my weight situation, and as such, I greatly reduced my alcohol intake for about a week now.  Last night I was out with some friends though, and I had a Sam Adams Winter Lager on tap, before moving to a small local brewery and having one of their own brews, Ghosts in the Graveyard I think it is called.  Very yummy stuff. 

I think that this year I want to take up homebrewing again, as I am just missing the craft beer scene so much when I am away from the States.

I haven't ever tried the beer you drank, but I generally like strong beers.  I've found a few at about 15% alcohol, but that is incredibly strong for a beer; after about 11 or 12%, you really need to manipulate it to make beer.

I don't really like Budweiser, at least not the American version.

I had a large Heineken can after my run tonight.  I got off of work and got home around 10 pm, then went for a run, so I needed something to relax.  As a whole though, I have been drinking a lot less beer since my mom has been visiting me.  Tomorrow I *might* stop at the import shop on the way home from running errands, to see what sort of interesting beers they have.  It all depends how lazy I feel.

Is the Canadian Budweiser the one from the Czech Republic?  If so, you are drinking the original Budweiser beer.  :)

I am finishing up an Extra Strong 12% beer by Harboe, a Danish company, before heading to bed.  The beer is mediocre at best, but I wanted to relax with a nice buzz and some warmth before drifting off to sleep tonight in my cold apartment.  I have made a conscious effort to cut back on my drinking dramatically over the past few weeks (though I started to make a 12 liter batch of apple wine...go figure), but over the weekend I just can't resist the urge to drink a few and relax, clear my mind and also open my artistic side.

It's not bad at all. It tastes nothing like Canadian Budweiser though. It has a very sharp kind of citrusy bite to it.

Yeah I don't think Czechvar is bad...it is the original Budweiser, and IMO should be the only Budweiser (basically the American company copied the name back during the 1800s, but back then American Budweiser actually tasted fairly good...i.e. like a German / European lager.  Only after prohibition did it (and a lot of the other German-American breweries, i.e. Busch, Pabst, etc) begin watered-down and start to taste like swill.  I had read a very interesting book on the history of beer in America, and I would have loved to be able to taste some of the macrobrewery beers when produced by the (mostly) German founders during the 1800s.

Right now I am sipping on some fermented apple beverage before heading to bed.  The beverage I made / am making myself, and is currently somewhat comparable to Germany's Apfelwein / ebbolwoi, though I hope to make It more into a cider before I am finished.

Let's bump this bad boy to the top.  Last beer I drank was a Taiwan Gold Medal beer...not really my favorite, to be honest, but in the rural areas it is hard to find decent beer locally.  :(

Last week my girlfriend decided to come and stay the night, and since I didn't have to go into work until late on Friday, we decided to get a bottle of lychee vodka and have a fun night.  Things started out fine, we took a few shots, mixed some drinks, and also ate some nice snacks that I had purchased for us earlier.  We dimmed the lights, put on some club music, and it was looking to be a nice night.

A few hours later though, we nearly finished the bottle of vodka.  Then things took a turn for the worse.  I don't remember exactly what happened, but I do remember lying on the floor and playing with my cat's one cat toy, batting it around.  A little while later my girlfriend had told me that she peed on the tile floor a bit, before heading to the bathroom.   :upsetroll:  Then I miraculously ended up making instant noodles without burning the apartment down, befor calling it a night and heading to bed.  Damn I am still recovering from that night, that is how I know I am getting old.

I have been cutting back even more lately. I am down to 2 beers per sitting and for the first time in my life, I actually don't feel like drinking all the time. I think I'm actually ready to stop getting wasted altogether and just have a few beers every once in a while.

What ever the case, the last beer I had was Czechvar. The taste is really starting to grow on me. It's nice to slowly slip one over an hour or two.

I've found that the more active I am, the less I drink.  On the nights that I go running, I usually don't drink at all, and if I do have a beer or two, it is never to the point of getting drunk or wasted.

The night I drank all the vodka with my girlfriend, the night before I had ran 15 k or so.  Talk about going from one health extreme to the next.

I recently got a bike and although I don't feel 100% comfortable riding it yet (I haven't rode a bike in 10 years or so, and never in a city environment), I took it out for a test run today, and hope that after my half marathon on Sunday, that the next week there will be some nice weather where I can plan some nice bike rides in the more rural areas.  Once again, won't be drinking when doing that stuff, and probably won't have the desire to either.

Where I sit, in the larger cities you can get a small selection of German beer, but I've come to discover that I much prefer beer on tap.  My tastes are also changing with beer, and I much prefer craft beers.  But I am curious to see if any of my favorite German beers, from when I was in Germany, are the same as Manuels

I don't actually have any favorite brands, but since I'm from Bavaria I tend to prefer Bavarian (Erdinger, Franziskaner etc.) and Czech brands.
I like "dunkles Weizenbier" (dark wheat beer) and "Bock" type beers.

Bock beer in my opinion is VERY. Strong tasting, bordering on the line of tasting like hard alcohol. You can get a 7% here and it tastes way stronger than a 9.5% Belgian style triple that you can also get here.  Not a bad taste, but very strong tasting.

I drank 2 8% FAXE beers last night. I have looked FAXE up on beer review sites and it always gets horrible ratings but I really enjoy it.


Title: Re: last beer you drink???

I think it depends on the brand.
Some of the bock beers can be quite creamy and mellow.

You've never tried it before? 

I like it,  but it is better served slightly chilled, as opposed to cold.  Many of the bars / stores sell it refrigerated, and that is too cold...it takes away from the taste and I don't like it that way.

Guinness is not the best beer in that style, but it is quite popular, and available.  That is why I drink it.  If I had access to others of that type in Taiwan, I would rather purchase microbrewery varieties.

Post by: fcgamer on May 12, 2015, 03:48:21 PM
Funny, I will now take back the comment I made last post ;)

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 ;)

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.

Right now I am on my 2nd FAXE beer. 500mls at 8%abv. Good stuff.  After this one I'll have a happy smokey smoke and sip a 3rd FAXE while playing some games.

Depending on the med, I'd probably still have one or two drinks. It may compliment the buzz ha-ha. :p

In all seriousness though, I hope everything is OK, and I totally feel the getting old thing.

Hell yeah there's pork rinds over the pond! I can only eat a few though before the oil becomes too much. The first couple bites are always the best!

Also, $5.99 CAD Little Caesars pep and cheese pizzas are awesome for the price. They were my go to lunch for a while.

It was some sort of craft beer. We had a get together and my boyfriend bought a variety pack of craft beers, all of which were good. I think the last one I had from it was this lime flavored thing.

Carling.  Here in the UK it's cheap, shitty lager.  I think they employed the "Black Label" moniker they used in the ads here to sell it in other markets.

Blue Moon Harvest Pumpkin Ale.

Not bad!

This variety pack also has a Chai Spiced Ale, which I was curious about since I like chai tea.  It's not a subtle spice and the beer is anything but subtle.  I don't know how I'm going to get through the remaining two bottles :-[

Chill it till it's about to start frosting and then drink fast haha. That's what I would have done back in the day anyway. I did a bit of drinking over the thanksgiving weekend(in Canada). Mostly Budweiser but some other stuff as well. Stella Artois and some other stuff.

Not really my last beer but a story of my last big drinking party in Japan this summer.

We where supposed to go with nomihoudai (all-you-can-drink) but we where waiting for some other friends so we decided to take a few quality drinks first while we were still sober (nomihoudai in Japan is more about quantity). I had some good nihonshu (saké) and imoshouchu (sweet potato liquor) and all was good, our firends showed up and we went with the nomihoudai. Our friends, who were still sober, wasn't happy with the quality of the nomihoudai drinks so they ordered some more expensive drinks and gave me the cheap ones. Also of course since it was nomihoudai I also kept ordering a steady flow of beer to get as much bang for the buck as possible. I think we ended the nomihoudai with some more hard liquor when the time was up. Damn I haven't been that wasted in years, I somehow managed to get back to my hotel before the last train went though.

Maybe it's good that we don't have nomihoudai in Sweden.


Title: Re: last beer you drink???
Post by: fcgamer on October 16, 2016, 12:23:37 PM
I've just about given up drinking all hard liquor, and rarely drink wine although I like it.  Now I am giving up beer until my brother comes to visit on the 26th of this month, so abstaining from drinking for ten days.

Lately I think my drinking has been a little over the top, and I just want to get away from it.  Gonna also try to start jogging again in the evenings.

Oh sake! I'm no expert but I absolutely love sake! I prefer heated sake the most, but some types of sake are better served cold, and in summer cold is probably best. If you don't know which one is best you could try both ways I guess. I've never prepared it myself so I don't really know how to do it, but I think heating is usually around 40° or so but there are several types of heating.

You know, I think I've seen this before in Taiwan but always passed due to the low alcohol content and higher price (all craft beers are going to be higher here). 

I am drinking now a Kasteel Donker 11%, $3 Belgian beers, I don't miss the $7+ they tax for these back in the States.

Oh I see, yeah maybe it's better heated. I know many Japanese that don't like nihonshu (as sake is called in Japanese) that much, but some of them say that they like it only together with Japanese cuisine. Personally I love the "ricey taste" of it and can drink it together with about any food though.


Title: Re: last beer you drink???
Post by: fcgamer on May 13, 2017, 02:19:50 PM
I never drank sake heated, but maybe next winter I will try.  When I buy it and drink at my apartment, I just drink it room temperature, not bad at all.  I think it tastes good, but it doesn't taste nearly as strong as it is, so it can easily catch up on me (in comparison, I usually drink "strong" beers", also room temperature, and with them you can taste the alcohol content in them.

Got drunk at the Chicago O'Hare airport (then had my flight canceled and had to sleep on the floor). Stuck with Goose Island since they're local :

Goose IPA
312 Urban Wheat (best of the night)
Goose Green Line Pale Ale
Matilda (wish I had drank this one earlier so I could have appreciated it)

Tsingtao - unremarkable, but tasted plenty good after some spicy vegetable soup.


Title: Re: last beer you drink???
Post by: fcgamer on June 18, 2017, 04:22:58 PM
Yeah, Tsingtao isn't the best, but the local stuff I bet was amazing.

I had a few Heinekens and a Grand Kirin JPL.  The latter is quite nice, but I only drink one or two of those at a time, then switch to something cheaper if I want to drink more.

The Family Mart near me frustrates me...every summer they have a selection of summer beers, from around the world.  Some are mediocre (like Pilsner Urquell), but others are actually fairly nice, like some craft brews from Anchor Brewery in the USA (I have no idea how Anchor compares to other craft brewers in the States, I've been away for too long, but anything craft over here in Taiwan is nice compared to what is usually available, and the pickings are always quite slim for this sort of stuff).  So last week or so they had posted on the beer fridge and also the front door they have this sale, buy three of the summer beers, get 20% off.  The only problem is that the shop doesn't carry any of those beers...

I talked with the cashier the other day, then she referred me to the boss and I spoke with her, and she said the reason is because there isn't enough space in the fridge.  She asked which beers I wanted, and said she would get them in.  But so far, no dice, and since Taiwan is such a small island, next day delivery is pretty much expected, so it seems like this just isn't happening. 

The thing that makes me the most frustrated though, is the idea of advertising something you aren't even carrying for sale.  Last August or September I remember the same sort of bullshit, where a drug store sent out sales fliers and among the stuff was a cream that was supposed to help with eczema and psoriasis.  I went to a few of the shops and tried to buy it, but they then said it was only available in the capital city.  Again, I was left scratching my head and wondering why stores even bother to put stuff in sales fliers and run specials on products they don't even sell.  Maybe it draws more customers into the stores, but in the end, it just pisses me off and makes me want to shop at those stores even less.

The last beer I had was on May long weekend.

The longer time goes on, the less interest I have in alcohol actually. I used to get so wasted and just make a fool out of myself. It put a lot of strain on my relationship. Being in more of a sober mind now, I see how destructive I used to be (I'm sure some of you remember how drunk I used to get. Let's not forget the " inhibitions set to -50" thread lol...) and don't want to ever get back to that. I'm pretty sure I'm completely done with alcohol.

That's great news Max - sound like just growing up and Fatherhood to me though, don't be so hard on yourself :)

I rarely drink either, but I like to enjoy a small whiskey on a Friday night every now and then. 

So I hardly ever drink beer now, unless I'm watching TV with my Dad.

Thanks Luke. Means a lot. :) I also want to be a better role model for my kids. My oldest son (6) only has one kidney, so the lifestyle I used to live with all the alcohol would be dangerous for him. I still smoke pot thpugh. It keeps me level headed. I have cut down on that too but that's going to be a lifelonger I think.

The idea of having a nicely chilled beer on a hot sunny afternoon is extremely appealing though lol...


Title: Re: last beer you drink???
Post by: P on June 19, 2017, 10:18:11 AM
Yeah good to hear Max. Alcoholism is quite common here unfortunately, and I try to be careful to not get addicted to it.
I also drink much more to enjoy the beer rather than to get drunk nowdays. Getting wasted was also more fun when I was younger (suddenly everyone around me seemed to be on friend-terms with me, yay!). I'm usually fine with one or two beers, it's especially good tasting after karate practice and the like.

Got drunk at the Chicago O'Hare airport (then had my flight canceled and had to sleep on the floor).
Ouch! What happened? Getting drunk while waiting for a plane doesn't sound like a good idea.

The thing that makes me the most frustrated though, is the idea of advertising something you aren't even carrying for sale.  Last August or September I remember the same sort of bullshit, where a drug store sent out sales fliers and among the stuff was a cream that was supposed to help with eczema and psoriasis.  I went to a few of the shops and tried to buy it, but they then said it was only available in the capital city.  Again, I was left scratching my head and wondering why stores even bother to put stuff in sales fliers and run specials on products they don't even sell.  Maybe it draws more customers into the stores, but in the end, it just pisses me off and makes me want to shop at those stores even less.
