Okey dokey, as threatened, to give you Axiomholics a place to express yourselves - here is the newly bumped beer thread.

ObContent: WhatFurrer brought up Anejo and other boutique tequila. Personally, I can't afford the stuff, though I would like to. Am I the only one who perceives "good" tequila as markedly more expensive than comparable brands of different kinds of spirits? I mean, I know you CAN spend lots of money on good hooch, but it seems to me that a decent bottle of Bourbon is $30-40 and a decent bottle of tequila is $50+. And there is very damn little tequila between the rotgut and the premium.

Draught beer rarely gives me a headache. I don't know how you guys can drink multiple american megabrews on weeknights. Good for you; I'd be a mess.

I've found pretty good tequila around $40, but I'm afraid I haven't really started dabbling in the really interesting, boutique brands. I've just had the superpremium from known brands, such as (yeah, I know) Cuervo something-more-expensive-than-1800-in-an-interesting-bottle and Herraduras Tres Generacianos. (I will now slaughter Spanish spelling!)

I'll have to second your impression of tequila pricing, Tom. $40 bucks will get you a very nice bottle of bourbon or Scotch.
I try to keep it in the $20 range for tequilas : Puerto Vallarta ain't bad, but it's very light; Herraduras Blanco and Reposado are both lively, but the prices have gone up from $20; Milagro is a silver that goes down like water, but it's prices have risen too; Cuervo Tradicional is 100% Agave.
I currently have a bottle of Cazadores Reposado ($50 for a 1.75L), which is very good. I also have a bottle of del Dueno Anejo ($20 for 750ml) which is not.

When it comes to tequila, I generally go for Sauza Hornitos. It checks in around $25 and I think it's excellent at that price. Definately my tequila of choice. If I want to put in more, I go with Patron. The only time I'll go cheaper is if I'm throwing a party or something, and then I just get Cuervo.

This reminds me that I need to try a bottle of tequila a coworker of mine gave me. He takes an annual month-long vacation to Mexico to visit his family, and one of his cousins either works for or runs a company that makes tequila. He brought me back a bottle, but I've yet to crack it open.

Hey Andrew - thanks for the recommendation. What happened to your avatar today?

Last night, I had a (reliably delicious) Black Butte Porter with pizza from a favorite local hole-in-the-wall. Adding to the pleasure was our venue next to the outdoor, 50-meter pool on the shores of Puget Sound in which my daughter was jubilantly enduring yet another swimming practice. Of course, I had to be clandestine about the beer, but you'd be not at all surprised how well a nice porter slides into a coffee travel mug.

Often, the ability to savor the beer in the glass is really about the people and the place. That was the best beer I've had in a long time.
