I'm drinking a Stella Artois, it just popped into me head.
Not the entire bottle?!

Stella.

A great Adult Malted Barley Pop.

Had a few of them last week when Mrs. Racer and I were at the Oregon Coast.

Happy New Year.

One of the nicest beers I've had is Hoegaarden Verboden Vrucht. If you can get it where you reside, it's well worth it. I also like the beers produced by the Upper Canada Brewing Co in Toronto. Nearly impossible to get here. Heineken is still a lovely beer. If you ever go on their brewery tour in Amsterdam, you get a free gift if you can prove it's your birthday on the day of the tour.

I've always enjoyed a Becks too. Locally, Monteiths brew really nice beer. Steinlager's not bad either. And, I do like a Guinness from time to time!

I like stouts, porters, basically anything dark, heavy, and hoppy.

That sounds good. Barossa shiraz - good choice. 2004 was, I recall, a normal year with normal rain. Then we had a few drought years, which gives more intense flavoured fruit.
Thanks! The wine was superbly flavoursome, the cellar makes wine from low-yield vines. There was a bit of volatility, which settled out after about 20 minutes of breathing, but the cork was in absolutely perfect condition and I feel the wine would happily age another 5 years, possibly not more. I have some 2000 bottles as well, which are certainly better.

Oh please yes. If I can see anything through the bottle it isn't going to make it.

The only lager I can drink is Sam Adams.

Of course, when I was younger I was not quite so picky...

And after four or five good Stouts I can't even tell you my name let alone what kind of beer I may be drinking.

I honestly don't much like drinking beer at all. Never did, but it doesn't matter since I can't handle alcohol straight anyway. Even beer and wine messes with my liver too much. I do like to use Guinness in beer batter for fish, onion rings and that though. My Gran she used to put into her soups and stews but I've never cared much for that. A lot of the pubs here will do that. I'm just like "Eh. No thanks!"

And just what will you do with 2,000 bottles of wine, pray tell?

Er, isn't that rather obvious? (over a period of course!)

If it were a K-9 it would be a dog unit in an emergency force, but a K-3? Your guess is as good as mine


A K-3 is 1/3 of a dog 😁

I second this. There is nothing in the universe that is better than a good stout after a day of skiing.

Love a good amber ale, too.

Nah, dark beer is way too bitter. Fruity pale ales are the way to go.
