My New Favorite Beer

Dear friends brought us a small present during a recent visit to the Beach. It was a four pack of gourmet beer picturing a Vintage Airstream. The Airstream on the label is even being pulled by a red and white tow vehicle similar to our Fred and Ethel. Actually, I'm not a big fan of frou-frou beer, but the label is fun to look at while drinking real beer.

Brian, a double IPA is definitely NOT a frou-frou beer. Take it from me who's son is a master Brewer and keeps me well supplied.

Bottom's up.

I have, in fact, tried the Moose Drool. As I recall, it was not to my liking even though there was a Moose on the label.

As to the frou-frou beer. My definition of frou-frou is any beer that costs mote than $15 a suitcase. My regular brand is Miwaukee's Best Light.

As children we grew up speaking German in the home as our parents were "fresh off the boat". At a camp 2 years ago my younger brother asked what kind of beer i liked as he volunteered to procure the beer. I immediately quipped that I was a great fan of Von Anderen. Translates as "from others" and, as he was buying, it meant that whatever he brought was going to be Von Anderen. He didn't get the joke and spent half an hour at the beer store looking for the brand.

A suitcase full of beer for $15? That's not frou-frou, that cheap, lousy beer.

There are only two kinds of beer: good beer, and better beer.

I don't know...have you ever had Schlitz? or Rheingold? Yuuuch..
I for one am very happy with the range of beers available today. There is a Tap room restaurant near me that has a dozen or more craft beers on draft, with a new list daily.
Sure is fun. (But not cheap)

I do remember both Schlitz and Rheingold. They were admittedly a little stiff, but not undrinkable. Many years ago I lived in New Orleans, and even developed a taste for Dixie. In those days, Dixie was only sold in the New Orleans area and the adjoining Mississippi Gulf Coast. Other states did not allow it in.

"Beer--the answer to, and cause of, all of life's problems".

Homer Simpson.

Oddly, I can relate to that statement.

I love craft beers, but my daily driver is Natty Light (ok, go ahead, say it). Try a Jailhouse Brewing Company Misdemeanor Ale sometime with a burger. Good stuff.

That is only true if someone else is buying the beer.
