But if you're still in college, racing cars, going to tractor pulls, Nascar, wearing Oakley's with suits, then okay drink up. Where's the keg, dude?
Oh come on, not REAL beer. Sorry but mainstream lager-derivatives are NOT beer in the true sense (swill really). Just avoid the typical rubbish. CHimay is good but there are better trappistes. Unfortunately Matt, those WILL be more fattenning (especially Trippel- three times the fermentation means three timnes the sugars to be broken in to alcohol). And there can be immense complexity in beer, btw. I'll have to agree though - wine or hard alcohol if you want quantity.
