    Wellllll...it takes all kinds...

    LOL!!!

    Seriously...I actually liked their bock beer they came out with several years ago. But it didn't sell enough, so they quit making it.

    Have you ever toured the brewery in S.A.? There are more taxidermy-ed mutant two-headed farm animals in there than you can shake a reachin'-stick at. And then they give you free beer at the end. Nice! You need a beer after you've seen all the two-headed goats and calves and fawns and snakes!

    Cherie :D

    That explains so much! LOL!

    If you're ever in S.A. for a few days, go to the Lone Star Brewery. Its a strange, funny, entertaining way to spend a hot summer afternoon. It isn't moving, or historical, or beautiful...its just weird fun! Kinda like the Snake Farm, but less educational. :D

    Have you tried the new Shiner Black ale yet? Its too expensive for me right now...bein' broke and what-not. But I'm curious to hear if its worth the $13!

    I have tried it, and I don't really remember how it tasted, so I think it's nothing special. It wasn't good enough to make me think "wow this is great!" and it wasn't bad enough to make me spit it out. So basically a middle of the road dark beer.

    Huh...so prolly not worth the $13 Super S is charging for it. 'k. Thanks!

    I wish Abita would sell their beers in Texas. They make some nice brews.

    I thought you could get Abita in Texas... they make turbodog, right? yeah, I just looked 'em up, and they make turbodog and purple haze, both of which I've seen around, if not in HEB then in liquor stores. I don't know that I've seen any of their other brews, though...

    OH, YAY!!!!! :hyper:

    The bartenders at The Watermark over in Columbia, LA, told me that Abita is not sold outside Louisiana. I'll be sure and enlighten them when I go back to get Mama in the spring!!!

    Gawd, those are good brews! That Purple Haze reminds me of one of the old Celis brews. I sure do miss Celis Brewery. *Those* were *excellent* brews!

    Well, gotta get the groceries put up and run over to the ice house and load up gear. Hubby and I both have rehearsals tonight, and all our stuff is at the ice house.
