    Well, here's to ya - I'm having a glass of wine at the moment... I practiced for about 4 hours today, including learning 6 or 7 new songs my band is probably going to play... Then, I tweaked the action on my favorite bass a little, and it's just playing fantastic... I got a freshly built 15" 8 ohm Black Widow for one of my cabs this week, and in the next week or so will be adding a 410, and an AEB to my gear... I'd say life could be worse...

    nice? clean? I think bud tastes like it would if I were to mix some dirt in with swamp water, there are far better tasting beers without the heavy alcohol content or heaviness in the stomach some beers will have. Personally I am a huge fan of belgian beers or any nice pilsner will always be better than that nastiness

    gah, German beer is what you have to drink if you want the good stuff! Tried the stuff when I lived oversea's (heh, I was 12 back then when my mom let me try it ^^).

    I love to kick back in my recliner, watch some TV, and just make up riffs in different keys for fun. It always amuses me, and it's good practice.

    German beer...bah. I was surprised how light most German beer is. I went to Stuttgart in March for a couple shows, and I drank the native beer while I was there, and while it tasted good, the alcohol content was about the same as a Bud. Dave Edmunds' drummer was from Sweden and he brought beer from Sweden because he said German beer was "p***water." Hard to argue. On the bright side, though, I drank way more beer in Germany in those two days than I have in the last two years, and I never got a hangover, even though I did get fairly sloppy drunk.

    random fact- Beer and Larger (lager?) aren't the same thing. The brewing process for each of them are a tad different casusing them to havr to use different names.

    I don't think people can tell a difference though.

  15. To me, lager isnt a beer, but most people class lager as a beer, to me ales are beers

    Difference : Ales are top fermented and Lagers are bottom fermented


    + True largers have to be largered, which means they have to be stored for at least a month or 6 weeks (cant remember which)
     
  16. Well i haven't tasted as many beers as you have during my short life but for me macfarland is the best...
    Beer made in my country (Greece) is worse than piss but at least it is cheap :p
