That was a good description, ringmir, thanks. I'll bet you can still taste that beer today, eh?
That IPA reminds me of many I've had. Tastes like spruce. Not my cup of tea.
Slightly off topic, I had another bottle of the $2 Charles Shaw Shiraz that won some gold medals at an int'l tasting event. Smells like a lumber yard - must have been aged in some very fresh barrels.
Tried CSI Miami, couldn't get into it.

OK, i DO watch survivor also.. dolly was a cutie, and she raised sheep for a living.. good country girl.

i dont watch ANY of the autopsy shows.. i think there are about 5-6 combined on the different channels.

st paulis girl is now my supersticious favorite. i won good money playing poker while i was drinking it saturday night.

i would sure like to try a 9% alcohol beer!!! i think the highest i have ever had was 7%.

Duvel is a good beer at 9% abv. Smooth as could be - maybe the reason for its name?

Love playing poker too. What do you guys play?

In reply to:

What do you guys play?



it depends on what mood we are in..

the majority of the time(75%), we play standard no limit hold'em.. it cracks me up that this particular game has gotten sooooo big here in the last 2 years, and i have been playin it since i was a kid(literally). when i was in elementary, we used to play it with M&M's.. my dad was a big card player, so i grew playin poker, gin, spades, hearts, rummy, and then learned uecker once i got into the army. i cant remember a family gathering when we didnt have some sort of card game going.. anyway, got off track..

we usually play no limit hold'em, but often just do dealer choice. 5 draw, 7 stud, mexican sweat, omaha, etc.. and my buddies like to roll dice, but i aint into that..

we just have fun, and keep the money at minimums.. but, saturday, we had 7 guys show up to play, and it was payday, so they wanted $20 dollar buy in, winner take all.. i got some good cards, and 4 hours later, i was victorious.. i ended up buying more beer and pizza for everyone, and then watched the rest of them roll dice the rest of the night. they were mad cause i wouldnt roll with them and let them get their money back.. boo-hoo..!! they know i dont roll the bones!

It's euchre where my family comes from (Indiana). I'm curious if you learned different rules... Peter has this rule where you can steal the deck (!) and he'd never heard most of the myths and hints (sit with the bathtub, etc.).

I've always liked 7 card stud, but the hold 'em tournaments on TV have got me hooked.
Different game when you're playing $2-4 hold 'em than the no limit game, I discovered. Gotta play a lot more hands and call more bets. And slow-play. And crank those free beers as fast as you can.

steal the deal, Ken, not the deck.

ok so, poker is a much more reasonable thread-jacking for this thread than "Survivor". Personally I'll play some poor-man's hold 'em every once in a while ($0.25 $0.50 blinds, low limit). This way if I'm the big loser for the night I can still chalk it up to "cost of entertainment" and not feel like I'm walking away pants-less. But I'm really not much for gambling in general.

Could you guys at least give a passing mention to the kind of beer you usually drink when gambling? Sheesh. And last time I checked, watching reality TV was not the sort of activity with which one typically associates consumption of delicious beverages. So yeah, smoking, drinking and gambling go together.

I recently had a Porter from St. Peter's Brewery in the UK. It was really fabulous - much more robust and hoppy than most traditional English beers. It was in great condition, too.
