    OT-Corona vs Blue Moon Ale

    WOW, what a difference.
    I ran out of lime, and had to switch. The first few gulps were quite an assault on the taste buds. I'll power thru though.
    I think I'm not as good as I thought.

    Who ever mentioned beer. I'm rehydrating after a 300 mile mt bike ride with 100,000 ft of climbing.
    The lime was to prevent scurvy

    Blue Moon is hands down better than Corona IMO.

    Have you tried this Rogue Dead Guy Ale? A few of those chased with a Guinness or two make for a tasty little treat now and then.

    Ah you just finished the AZT 300? Don't wait til after you finish, drink during. Trust me, it helped me. BTW, it only has 40k of climbing.

    Good advice on drinking during the event, thanks. My GPS has been acting up, so I'll take your word on the elevation change.

    What would Chopper Read say about those beers? Aside from touting his own beer....Chopper Heavy, he'd say "HTFU!"

    Corona will never pass these lips again. The only Mexican beers worth drinking are Bohemia and Negra Modela, and occasionally Pacifico, if I'm thirsty.

    I bought the Blue Moon due to a recomendation.
    I normally stock Corona and my personal fav Newcastle.
    Unless of course I'm somwhere that has Guinness on tap.

    This time of year, I grab some Dogfish Head Punkin Ale while I can get it. Drinking one as I type this.

    I'm a Blue Moon fan, especially now that I can buy it in cans! But with so many great canned choices out there now, even some local brews, I can't limit myself to just one kind!


    Or just one.........!
