Beer Thread

Generally an unmoderated forum for discussion of pretty much any topic. The focus however, is usually politics.

No biggie. I don't care where you got it. I just thought it was funny that a whole wall of Bud Lite, particularly under a "Craft Beer" sign, was considered by someone other than me to be a major error.

Sorry. I misconscrewed your "Sure, and that pic was originally. . . " I thought it was funny too, especially in light of JTA's praises of Bud Light!
Maybe I was expecting too much by insinuating that "Craft" beer was intended for consumption on watercraft!

Drink This Juice to Skip a Hangover

What about cocktails with pear juice in them or:

It's going to be a lot of pear drunks plus a non-pear control test to see what works and doesn't.

Which beer would you more associate with a trashy redneck?

Heinekin, or PBR.

Has to be one of those two QUICK!

Trick question. Either, trashy rednecks drink whatever beer is in someone else's frig.

I prefer the term "old-fashioned."

Until the eighteenth century, many Westerners including children drank beer almost continuously. They had to; this was before water filtration and drilled wells. The local creek might be collecting run-off from a field of cattle or sheep or horses upstream.

Folks even began their day with something called "beer soup." (Beer, eggs, butter, salt.) Later, people began each day with a cup of coffee. Some explain the industrial revolution as the inevitable consequence of a world where people suddenly preferred being jittery to being drunk.

PBR won, only because the patch says "Pabst Powered", like Popeye the sailor man, except with PBR.

Where was the survey? It's interesting because at one time, PBR would have been associated with rednecks and college students looking for cheap beer. That would have been helped along by the song "Rednecks, White Socks, and Blue Ribbon Beer" from early 70's sometime. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4N3iVHxP8FQ

More recently, since the PBR brand has returned (but not the beer), it's more associated with hipsters.

I don't really have a stereotypical connotation for Heinekin. Other than if it's free in somebody else's fridge, do rednecks drink Heinekin? And if so, is it just a chaser for Bud Lite?

Yeah pbr is a bigtime hipster beer.

While we're on the topic of beer, have you ever been to Pisgah brewery? I went there a few weeks ago, not too bad.

I watched parts of Ken Burns' Prohibition: A Nation of Drunkards episode on PBS last night. One of the things it mentioned that I didn't know was that the dry movement was heavily anti-immigrant and groups like the heavily southern Anti-Saloon League were anti-black because, of course, it's those people that drink and cause problems. Sigh, some things never change in America.

It also pointed out that thanks to the Woman's Christian Temperance Union and others Jesus would have been jailed for turning water into wine.
