  2. Ha!
    The marketing department got you. :smug:
     
  3. For hands free play, you need to make one of these, then get a straw.

    Or do it the old hands free way.

    whatever is cheap usually does the trick. I like PBR.

    That's a very good idea, because lifting the bottle to my lips repeatedly really gets in the way of playing.

    A nice 100%-de-agave tequila, preferably blanco, on the rocks. Beer just slows me down and makes me stupid(er).

    I prefer being temporarily stupid, so I don't know how bad I sound, LOL.

    I had some Troegenator Double Bock not long ago, and that was great, but it was 8% or 9% so it snuck up on me and my playing pretty quick. Moscow Mules are pretty good for practicing too.

    I've only tried ones from a local brewery here in Seattle called Hale's Ales, but man... Delicious!

    Have you ever done the alternate version, the Kentucky Mule? Replace the vodka with Kentucky straight bourbon.

    For a guy that doesn't drink very often, I sure am weighing in on all of this a lot :p

    I just can't get into Scotch Ales, or scotch for that matter. Too smokey for my taste.
     
  15. This is mild, but still a little malty, like a light Porter. How about Island Hoppin' Brewery, from Orcas Island?

    Had their Kolsch at my wedding, and have partied with folks from the brewery. We're spending Christmas on the island this year as we did last year.

    Nice. We ate Christmas dinner at the bar there last year. Cool spot.

    They're northwest beers, so I'm not sure how common they are in the rest of the world.

    It depends on what I'm playing at the time, if it's Tex- mex I drink Pacifico, if it's Nortena I drink Tecate, If it's country I drink Coors light, if it's Blues, Rock or Top 40 or anything else I drink Micros...:D
