Boycott any beer with less than 5% alcohol.

Yes and I really prefer 8+ ABV except at pubs where they want to put the more potent stuff if sniffers and tease glasses
I agree with Hondo Gravel as beers should be in pint servings and not be diet beer.

I’ve been mostly drinking gin cocktails lately, so I’m fine with this. Anyone for a gimlet?

Very stereotypical PNW Sunday today, starting taking the no. 2 bus to Petite Provence for a scramble and coffee, finished with a croissant with raspberry sauce. From there we walked division checking out what survived the plague until we ran out of shade, then picked up the no. 2 bus again into the city. At Columbia outlet i picked out two pairs of non cotton hiking shorts and the wife a high upv long sleeved shirt for herself. Upon paying i realized my credit card was back at the restaurant, so the wife paid and back to the no. 2 for us. It seems we've all forgotten how to do things, as the lady in front of me at PP was also there to pick up a forgotten credit card. Giving up on downtown Portland, we walked east along Division looking for refreshments, liquid rather than pastries.

All that to say, at the food truck pod we selected I had a PINT, not one of those ******g chalices or whatever they hell call those 12 ounce artsy shaped glasses. What is the damn point of high ABV if the glasses are tiny? Stupid regulators.

From there we took the no 14 bus then the no 9 bus to a Vietnamese sandwich place, where I chose a French ham and cheese on baguette and the wife a salad. I suppose French sandwiches at a Vietnamese restaurant are the result of French colonialism. The baguette was underwhelming.

The no 2 bus took us most of the way home; we walked the last mile, ducking from shade to shade. ATM I'm having a PINT on my shaded balcony. The AC is broken, but the fridge is cold.

Public transit ftw.

They rounded up to 11.2oz on the bottles in my fridge right now.

In the summer I often wish for smaller beers. It would be so nice to have 8oz cold ones to take on bike rides. My legs sometimes start locking up if I sit down for a pint.

I choose my beer for taste, rather than alcohol content or wackiness of name or ingredients. Shape or size of container is irrelevant as I can pour and drink as much or as little as I want, it isn't that hard to figure out how to pour enough into a glass.

There's no taste under 5%. That's just basic science.

Ice chest aka cooler science? I’m experienced with cheap light beer living in hot humid climate but I think I might have got the cooler down lol. Many coolers thru the years but Yeti is the best and I’m not talking NASA coolers here the cooler overpriced and at an outdoors vendor. Keeps the beer cold the steaks in the basket ready to go etc etc .. yup the Colorado Gatorade is light but the ice chest rules..

Ease up there, Merry, we have two more movies and few sequels to go.

But enjoy that chalice. It's the least bad option.

That's Mt Hood. Ranier is more roundy on top, while Hood looks like what a little kid would draw for a mountain. St Helens looks like a mountain that the top third blew off.

The sweet view of Hood is from my balcony.

I'm going to formulate a product called Beer Booster. It'll come in a small six-pack of bottles about the size of a 5-hour energy drink, and it'll be used to fortify your beer. It'll be basically 90% alcohol, with flavorings that will enable the user to turn his Dollar General cheapo beers into delicious, high-quality craft beers simply by pouring it into his partially-drank beer container. Now your Keystone Light will be just as tasty and fulfilling as Heady Topper! I'll be rich!

2x 12oz beers > 1x 16oz beer!

I'm addicted to IPA's these days and it's only through shear force of will that I'm able to choke down a lager anymore. STONE IPA (available in 24 packs at Costco) are my staple.

Heh. I actually let the air out of a good friend’s tires during a Christmas Eve home made pizza party I threw back in 1987. He was stinking drunk and was going to ride home. We told him he had two flats. Later, he was going to try to ride home with two flats so we took the wheels off and hid them. Another party goer eventually drove him and his bike the relatively short distance.

That good friend has been clean and sober now for close to 20 years. He’d likely be dead otherwise. While I first missed the good-times, partner in crime version, I’m now grateful he’s alive and doing great. In 2018 he drove nearly 5 hrs. to pick me up after I had to abandon a bike tour due to horrible weather. He then drove another 5 hrs. back to his place in the country and then another 2 hrs. back to the city the next day.

As part of my service to other forum members, I am accepting your unwanted, unused, full beer containers, and will dispose of them at my own expense.

Another variation on your get rich scheme would be to offer six-packs of empty beer bottles for repackaging cheapo beer. The key marketing hook is to include labels that should make the swill appeal to so-called craft beer aficionados. Labels should feature wackadoodle names( i.e. "Vulture Vomit" or "Weasel Wee") and exotic ingredients (i.e. "Unicorn Urine" or "Roasted Angel Feathers") and 15% alcohol regardless of actual content. Sure to satisfy all the requirements for impressing most beer snob bros.

pity. it's lager weather. a decent little brewery in your backyard makes a decent compromise. brouwerij west out of san pedro (close to the uss iowa) makes
an ipl...india pale lager called daewon vs beer-vol 1. it doesn't suck. if i can (consistently) find it down here in san diego, surely it's available in the greater la area.
tasting room is sweet and the beers are top-notch. they are doing some interesting stuff there. three weavers over in inglewood rox as well... their seafarer kölsch
is a staple. pretty sure you've crushed their expatriate ipa at some point.

and yah, ipa's are usually my go-to as well.

I have a cool poster, like maybe 4 feet wide by 12-18in tall, of a view that includes Ranier, Hood, St Helens, and um, the other one.
