Talking about good beer, anyone remember Texas Pride, Buckhorn or Pearl? Yea, good times.

In my days at UT we would hit the Black Cat Lounge on 6th to listen to Banana Blender Surprise, eat free boiled hot dogs and drink $1 Pearl Lights, PBR or Mickey's hand grenades.  Can't beat it.

anyone had any Balconies out of Waco?...They started with a single malt that won every award worldwide. They make a bourbon as well and then some stuff that might defy labeling. Pretty pricey.

I second that Red Breast recommendation and the Middleton rare...wow!...unbelievable, but at $250.oo a fifth, a bit pricey.

Yes, big fan of Balcones.  Ben Milam as well.

How's Devils River?  I've seen billboards all over Houston advertising it but haven't tried it.  The only rye that I buy is Sazerac because it makes great Sazeracs...

 

I like using it in old fashioned, very smooth. However I have also started using a Basel Haden Dark Rye and it's really good in that old fashion too.

I always ask this question of power drinkers - why do you drink flavored alcohol?  It surely can't be for the taste (Scotch tastes like I imagine iodine would taste).

So I can only assume one drinks to either get drunk or get a buzz on.

Why?

 

P.S: don't get me wrong, I like a cold beer now and them, but my preference is diet Dr. Pepper.

I'm just like you. Some wines taste good enough to drink them on taste alone. But thats about it. Scotch is awful. lol

IMO, people are just wired differently. What tastes good to you or me probably isn't a big deal to them.

Which brings my next question . . . if you're talking about a bad taste or lack of taste, why in the hell are you drinking Diet Dr Pepper? lol I drink mostly water and sweet tea, but enjoy a cold bottle of Coke now and then, and on rare occasion, an ice cold shiner bock.

I've tried it, it's very nice.

 

I am a bourbon guy though I've been known to sip a Sapphire and Tonic from time to time.

 

If I'm mixing, it's Crown and Diet Coke (sue me I like the taste better)

 

But mostly I like the small batches with just one ice cube or whiskey stone.

 

1792

Buffalo Trace

Bluiett

Angel Envy

A new favorite I have discovered, Jefferson's Ocean

Also, the white labeled TX makes for an excellent after dinner sip.

And i can vouch for JoeyWa's collection, had fun sampling one night.
