    There is a possibility that she'd rather watch me freeze to death than put up with my drunken snoring.

     I suppose drunkenly singing to sway her wouldn't work.

    It's worth a shot.

    On the other end of the spectrum there's beer from one of the local breweries going for $1/can around town right now -- not entirely lousy beer either:

    I'm not sure there's a cheaper beer on the market right now, not even the generic swill is quite this inexpensive.

    Just recently had the chance to again have a couple of glasses of Salzburger Stiegel Beer ( still give it the thumbs up ). Anyone else out have a chance to try some Austrian Beer ?

    Well as this thread is about beer let us continue with that subject. Recently I bought a bottle of a beer called Mongozo ( from Belgium ). It is a nice average beer but what I found interesting about it is that it is Gluten free and also Organic ( is it then a health-beer ? lol ).

    How did it taste?  Most/many gluten free beers are made with sourgum which is horrid stuff.  This one says it's a "buckwheat white".

    Thanks for the post Grobe. My regular brew is of course still the one and only Old Style Pilsner. This Mongozo beer also calls itself a Pilsener ( they use the extra " e " lol ) but it reminds me a bit of a light beer. They have a list of ingedients on the label which reads: water, barley malt, rice, yeast and hops, no wierd stuff there.

    I am not a big fan of dark beers, but I recently purchased a bourbon stout and let me say it was well worth the $9.

    Most of the pilseners brewed here use the surplus e as well. I think they are named after the town and environs of Plzen in the Czech Republic, which means that pilsner should have two 'e's, but no i. But I suppose if they sample enough of their own product it becomes difficult to spell anything correctly.

    There's no "I" in beer!

    (except of course, if asked, then yes, I will have another)

    Nice to see your post Ivandh. Being a fan of history I could add a couple of points here. Prior to 1918 the town in question was called Pilsen and that area was contolled by the Austrians. After the end of World War One the map of Europe changed a bit but the beer is still Pilsener ( or Pilsner  lol ).

    --- That is a very good policy AlCzervik.

    As the bourbon stout goes, I assume aged in bourbon barrels? Some of these are phenomenal, especially when the oak starts adding interesting flavours (is that vanilla? Nope, oak.). Many of these just get better with age too, especially if really high in alcohol. The alcohol bite fades to the background and the flavours mellow nicelyrics to the point where it can taste like candy. Make no mistake, though, all that alcohol is still there.

    Yesterday was St.Patrick's Day but I did not have the usual brew from Ireland. However I did manage to locate something interesting: Irish Cider by WM Magner of Clonmel, Tipperary ( 2 thumbs up for this one ).
