    New question here. What's In The 'Fridge? Friday

    hey drinkers -

    its been a while since I've seen a nice tall, cold beer thread. The holidays are upon us and nothing says "shopping denial" like a good beer buzz. Or a nice cola burn, if thats your thing.

    Whatcha drinkin'?

    Me? As nasty as it sounded at first, the Pumpkin Ale turned out to be surprisingly nice. More spicey / clovey than pumpkiny. It complimented last nights chile rather well. On standby is various mexican beer; Corona, Negra Modelo, Pacifico, etc. And of course some Rogue Dead Guy Ale.

    Looking forward to some more Samuel Smiths Oatmeal Stout too. 'cuz oatmeal is healthy.

    Cheers!

    There's always some Magic Hat or Saranac laying around my fridge, but lately I've hada lot of German biers left over from a party a few weeks back... mostly Pils and some Oktoberfest brews. That won't last long...

    But I am switching abck and forth between wine and beer too... a recent wine tasting "forced me" to pick up 2 mixed cases of wine. A very nice mix of reds and whites. Mostly CA, Australia, NZ etc.

    Fridge selection-

    Tommy Knocker Maple Nut Brown- Year round favorite.
    Highland Brewing company- Oatmeal porter. This one is a recent discovery while travelling in TN. Great stuff, soon to be a winter favorite.
    Negro Modelo-Always.

    That's the status of my fridge today.

    On the counter top is a bottle of Bonnie Doon syrah. Fantastic.

    Still on the low-carb kick

    I'm stuck on the low-carb merry-go-round and can't seem to make myself get off. I'm down 35 - 40 lbs, but stabilizing. I'm still on my Miller Lite kick, having sworn off regular guzzling of mass quantities of micros last March to lose weight. That was easy in the summer, since I'm not a big fan of summer-style micros (hefeweisens and the like), but now that it's cold out I'm pining for a big tall stout, porter, or spicy holiday ale. I'll do a nice micro on a special occasion, and I drank pi$$-loads of Guiness when I was in Rhode Island a couple of weeks ago, but every day beer is limited to Miller Lite and the occasional post-ride tall boy of the Pabst Blue Ribbon, and this past Monday night I downed a 40 of OE 800 while building up a frame. Good times.

    Good job!

    great movie! Paul Giamatti is awesome, and the rules are that you MUST go have wine afterwards. However - "No F*cking Merlot!"

    side note: Fighter of Foo Dave Grohl sat behind me in the theater. Neat.

    Great movie!

    There's half a bomber of homebrew ESB in the fridge. Everything else is in the beer closet including the most recently brewed batch of Christmas spiced ale. Its time to bottle soon. Pyramid Snow Cap is GREAT this year, and I'm usually not a big fan of Pyramid brews. In the closet, I've got a couple barleywines, some Bell's Expedition Stout (aged over a year), an Apache Trout Stout (aged), a couple winter brews (one aged) from Dick's Brewing, a bottle of last years Full Sail Wassail, one of last years Sierra Nevada OSA, an aged Dick's Grand Cru and quite a bit of homebrew (lots of Rye IPA, some more ESB and a few bottles of an attempt at a cloned Bell's winter ale recipe).

    I'll share

    I've been in a full liquor/wine/beer rotation for the last couple months.

    Liquor: Gin. Lots of it. Sapphire is good, Beefeater is good, Citadelle is excellent. Tonic water in the fridge.

    Wine: Pinot Noir! On the wine rack. Been able to find some nice cheap versions, Cartlidge & Boone or someone or other was pretty nice. Also getting into a Semillion/Chard mix mood for white. Black Swan?

    Beer: Lots of them that have been mentioned. The Avery Quad Belgian knocked me down a last week. My head's still spinning. Full Sail IPA in a bomber was super tasty. Dale's Pale Ale, straight from the can, rocks. And New Belgium's winter beer, Frambozen. Can't go wrong with that one!



    Could someone pick me up from detox next week?
    Take the long cut, we'll get there eventually.

    Cool! I'm going to a free screening tonight!

    BTW, CA Trader Joe's have Tule Vista Cab for $1.20 a bottle and it's way better than Cheap Chuck.

    Coors Light and plenty of it, why? Because we don't get anything other than the regular domestic and common imports around here.

    High Life tall boys to soak the brats in. Amber ale homebrew to savor. Guinness, red stripe, leinie's berry (wife's). I'll travel far for a Mac & Jack's African Amber on tap though.

    yards - thomas jefferson ale.

    8% alcohol, and supposedly made from the same ingredients thomas jefferson used in his own homebrew's.

    all i know is it's pretty good, and two give me a nice buzz! from this i have concluded that i think tom used to like to get his drink on real propper like!!!

    and i got some yuengling lager (but who in eastern PA doesn't have at least a couple of those tucked in the back of the fridge for "emergencies" )

    I have nary a care for celebrity oo-ing and ah-ing. They are just people. BUT - I would love to visit - you know, "hang out & have a beer" with Mr. Grohl for an hour or so. For some reason he seems like such a fun person with a great sense of humor.

    Dunno why him out of anybody but hey that's what I think.

    hijacking my own thread

    it was a small art house theater on a Sunday and he was with his mom (!) and another couple.

    he looked so plain and 'normal' that I dismissed him as a look-alike. The "FF" tattoo on the back of his neck was the giveaway though. I was tempted to say something to him... but refrained.

    Rock stars are people too.

    Pretty good stuff there Hollywood, I was pleasently surprised as well. Anyway, I have some Mission Street Pale, Deschutes Cascade Ale, and some Bridgeport Ebenezer seasonal. In the freezer one-fith of Stoli for when the martinis start to flow. White Russians are good too. So I strayed from the original post a bit. Johnnie Walker Red and Yukon Jack in the cabinet keeping the Tanqueray and sake company. Back ups to beer. All that said, it's 5 somewhere, right?

    Nothing....

    ...........at least here in the office. I just cracked open the last Hoegaarden from our sad little mini fridge. I'm still coming down off my usual wheat filled summer. Maybe I'll make it a year round thing this time. I never met a Paulaner, Franziskaner, or even Brooklyn's wheaty offering I didn't like.

    torture....

    There's nothin' in my fridge right now...but i plan to remedy the situation with guinness.

    But first, the GF just got a new job, and her office is 5 doors down from SuperMex. So I'll be having Negra Modelos to start.

    Anyone ever try a shandy? They're big in England and Scotland as a breakfast drink.

    Yeah, that there is a fine beverage. I've also heard them referred to as "raddlers", but I think that may be 1 part lemonade 1 part ale.

    We need to do the fixed gears and beers deal soon. Winter is upon us and I can think of no better way to celebrate.

    Homebrew: Brown Bush and Bitter Kerry (Amer Brown and Golden Ale, respectively)

    And, just off the stove...a Belgian Wit wit (ha!) about two pounds of cherries and some orange peels in it. Coming out of the primary fermenter tomorrow morning is an almost black stout. Winter brews!

    A fifth of Bacardi Black Rum, a two liter of Coke, and a lemon.

    Yeah, yeah. I know it's not Mount Gay, but sometimes I just like the dark stuff.

    Me...I busy wrapping my lips around a nice bottle of Sprecher Abbey Triple Ale (courtesy of Ernesto...thanks man!!! ). Tell Annabel she picks out good beer, I've never had this one before. It is a nice mild, full flavored beer. Has a hint of sweetness, with a lovely aftertaste. All around very nice to the pallet. I just hope it doesn't give me the shyts...

    in my pants

    This is what I have in my fridge. Some Moose Drool, a gallon of milk (remember, I'm from_Wisconsin), some Gerber, alligator head meat, ENO, some Dean's something or other...I am about to drink some, so leave me alone. I need it like an alcoholic right now. Haven't had a beer in 2 weeks...beer...does the liver bad...gotta prime the liver...gotta win, I must win against the voices, especially the Japanese voice. I hear it all the time and I am sure it tells me what to do, but I don't understand a word that voice says.

    After finishing off a bottle of Chimay Blue and Ayinger Celebrator Dopplebock last weekend, I needed some good stuff for this one. So today, I picked up a dub deuce of Rogue Mocha Porter, along with a big bottle of Ommegang, a belgian ale brewed in NY. I looked at the Delerium (which I love), looked at the Ommegang, and looked at the prices...Ommegang it is! It's rated very well on RateBeer.com, so I hope it'll be good - a cheaper substitute to the other strong ales would be nice.

    BTW, is that Pumpkin Ale by Blue Moon? I hope not. I tried some, nasty stuff. I think it's because I hate Blue Moon...sorriest excuse for Belgian White I've ever tasted. Owned by Coors...that's all I need to know.

    Dunno why him out of anybody but hey that's what I think.
    I'm generally not one to go crazy over celebrities, but I was listening to the latest Tom Waits album shortly after it came out a month or so ago, and for some reason it occured to me just how cool it would be to go fishing with Les Claypool and Tom Waits.

    Now before you write me off as a complete loon, hear me out. Now, I don't even *like* fishing, but if you've ever listened to Primus it's pretty obvious those dudes like to fish (or at least Les does), and Les Claypool and Tom Waits have played together on quite a few different projects over the years (Did ya know Tom Waits is the voice of Tommy the Cat?). Given all that, it's not entirely out of the realm of possibility that maybe they go fishin' together. So how cool would it be to be hangin' out on a boat w/ Tom & Les and a cooler full of beers just fishin' and shootin' the bull?

    As for the beer, all I have in the fridge right now is the lone remaining Gordon Biersch Marzen lager, from a sixer I picked up last weekend.

    3 bottles of James Boag's Premium Light.
    Thanks for reminding me that I need to start brewing up some Porter and at least one other home brew for summer.
    Just for the record. I saw someone mention that fantastic Australian wine Yellowtail. Guess what?!??! It is not a wine that is even available in Australia. I had never heard of it until my Canada/US trip about a month or so ago. Mind you I tried it and it is not too bad.

    I would still rather a Penfolds, Tyrells or Bin 555 though.

    Me? As nasty as it sounded at first, the Pumpkin Ale turned out to be surprisingly nice. More spicey / clovey than pumpkiny. It complimented last nights chile rather well. On standby is various mexican beer; Corona, Negra Modelo, Pacifico, etc. And of course some Rogue Dead Guy Ale.

    Looking forward to some more Samuel Smiths Oatmeal Stout too. 'cuz oatmeal is healthy.

    Cheers!

    Gotta have the Rogue! Dead Guy is a favorite, but I thought I'd try something different this time.

    Since my wife and I have decided to more to Oregon next year, I went to Bevmo and picked up some Oregonian brews on the way home. This pic is from last Friday, but the fridge has the same contents today. Good stuff, but I can't have more than a couple a night unless it's 30 deg or less outside...which it isn't.

    Lol

    Yup, that is a bottle of #5 in front on the shelf (the half-full clear one with the yellow cap). Yummy. And those water bottles are Cream Puff bottles... hard earned, yeah, but sadly empty at the time of the photo. Hey Padre, you're doin' the 'Puff next year, ain'tcha? Yee ha.

    Whatever. In any case shiggy and I are lickin' forehead to the next chance to ride with you 'n yer wonderful bride Leslie. You guys headin' for Sea Otter in '05? I hope to do so myself.

    Back to beer... my Mirror Pond keg is close to empty... I might get a keg of Jubelale next.

    Merry Christmas!

    One of those Port Macquarie vinters is pretty tolerable, too. Big circle on the label? I've forgotten... I went and had lunch there when I was in Port. Nice cellar, but terrible food and service - clearly catering primarily for tourists.

    Porters are fun. Last night's brew session was a toss up between a raspberry Porter and an 'anything goes' Wit. So...Cherry Wit it is. I've neve rheard of one before, but we'll see in a few weeks!

    Late breaking beer update

    Just today I crammed a new half-barrel of Steelhead Rhino Red into the Sparty Kegerator. Mmmmmmmm! Being the sole beer drinker in the house, 15.5 gallons ought to last me about three months. Come on up whenever you get the chance... I'll draw you a pint or two and we can swap lies about what super duper mountain bikers we are.

    Hey, if things go as planned, I Otter Sea ya in April '05.

    Enlightenment, yo!

    Can't believe ya'll overlooked the elixer, AVBC IPA! Nothing else compares, though some stuff has it qualities. Oh, it makes me so hoppy! Tractors can't pull me away. The Madam just brought be one before dinner. I suggest you get one too. Like the SSs, and its derivative, the formum, nothing else compares, assuming you've got the knees and liver to handle the assignment. My head will destruct in my 70s, if not sooner or later. Stand up and stand back. And a hoppy amen to all.

    Mix 1 half Guiness (can) with 1 half Sam Adam's Cherry Wheat. Wow what a combo, like a dark cherry chocolate candy.

    That Cherry Wheat is different. After wandering around for a half hour in Evansville, Indiana trying to find a decent beer store, I gave up and went to a random place. That was the most interesting thing they had, so I got it...I didn't mind it, but everyone else who tried it hated it.

    If you're ever down around Lexington/Versailles/Frankfort in Kentucky, you should wander around and see some of the distilleries. Labrot & Graham, especially, is in a very pretty part of this area in Woodford County, called Millville. There's also the massive, very cool, and mostly abandoned Old Crow/Old Taylor distillery on that same road. Wild Turkey, in Lawrenceburg, is very close by there and is located next to the nifty Tyrone Bridge...still scares me to drive across it. If you're here around Christmas, Buffalo Trace opens its doors each evening so you can drive around and see their Christmas decorations, and take the kids to see Sandy Claus. Used to be the highlight of my vacation when I was younger.

    You can get to all of these, plus Jim Beam's Old Grandad plant, within thirty minutes of each other...makes for a nice little trip around a beautiful area.

    Mmmm, that reminds me...I need to break out the Buffalo Trace for some bourbon balls soon.

    Ha! I went to Ohio State for a year...'nuff said. Let me know when you come down, I could show you some sights in the area, and maybe we could get some ridin' in. I live in Lexington now for school, but I'm from Frankfort, so I know the area decently well. Just right off I-75!

    Good old Santa Clause, Indiana...what a great place! My dad's from Jasper, so we used to visit that park with my aunts and uncles sometimes, it was great. Always clean and never packed, my dad and I would have a blast. The Banshee was always my favourite...haven't been out there in probably 8-10 years, I wouldn't mind going back.

    Not exactly in the area, but it is easy to get to from central KY, about two hours west on I-64. A pleasant alternative to the monster amusement parks.

    Newcastle Brown Ale, Red Hook rich amber ale, Harp, Heineken, and a growler of Mud Shark Up-River lager. I've got a dumb question for Y'all. Where do you find your brews? I love to sample the micro brews (example - the growler of Mud Shark) but have a hard time finding them. Is there a beer of the month club or something?

    Louisville and Lexington are blessed with Liquor Barns, some local stores that carry quite a bit of good stuff. There's also one near Cincinnati with some interesting rare brews.

    Surprisingly, Wild Oats carries a few good brews...not much of a selection, but it's better than nothing.
