I can't stand dark beers such as Toohey's old and Guiness, horrible stuff, same with bourbon can't stand it.
I guess that means we won't be tearing up Freemantle any time soon then eh?
Way back in HS it was hard liquor for me. And some pot. My time in the military taught me to appreciate beers from around the world, and lots of pot. I never had a thing for American beers. Even Canadian stuff is blah. I like the wheat beers that I can never say the name of, but to be honest Guinness is God's drink and I can prove it. Guinness is Irish right? And the Irish are pretty much Christians right? But God, if you go for that stuff, did most of his work in the middle east. Cradle of civilization and all that. So after God got off work did he stay there and party? No! He went to Ireland and threw back a pint or two of the darkest finest brew his creations could create. They had a bit of help of course, because, you know, God can get a good drink when he wants it. But then he goes back to work and does like all people (and immortal beings I guess) and started talking about all the partying he did on the weekend. THAT is why almost every bar in Israel carries [url=http://beer.trash.net/beerpage.php?beernum=422]Maccabee[/url] and [url=http://beer.trash.net/beerpage.php?beernum=17]Goldstar[/url] and (of course) [url=http://beer.trash.net/beerpage.php?beernum=947]GUINNESS[/url]! Hey I even found a bar there that had a Saint Patricks Day special. What other reason than divine intervention can you think of that would explain why the middle of the Jewish world in the middle of the middle east would celebrate a dead Christian Irishman?
Anyway these days I'm more inclined to a double shot of kentucky sourmash straight up and a glass of water on the side than anything with bubbles in it.
