Clearly your job does not require urine testing.

 

Oh, and yes, I do eschew both VB and XXXX, in favour of metrosexual-approved booteeq beers. Why? Because they taste better. By several orders of magnitude.

I feel for anyone living in a place where great beer is hard to come by. We're lucky in Northern California to have Russian River, Lagunitas, Bear Republic, Trumer, Sierra Nevada to name a few... and then some smaller makers in SF proper: Magnolia, Speakeasy, Almenac (makes mostly Sours which are gaining popularity), and Anchor Steam if you're into that, which I'm not so much.

But one of the best American breweries I've come across in the last few years is actually out of upstate New York, home of the baseball hall of fame. Ommegang out of Cooperstown. Especially the Saison.

And now I'm thirsty and its only 8am.

I'm a philistine; I generally prefer well known beers to craft beers.

My two favorites are probably Pilsner Urquell and Krombacher. I have one of those two when I get home without fail.

Though on a really hot day, and I'm drinking outside, Cerveza Sol.

I'll occasionally have a Texas-Czech beer called Shiner Bock.

I like Ommegang a lot, too. My girlfriend and I went to Portland, Maine last spring and aside from having an amazing time together we noticed that there are microbrews all over that city.

Boston, specifically Cambridge, has a very good beer selection because there is a big hipster community there. I may roll my eyes at hipsters, but a lot of them seem to know their beers really well.

I'm much more into wine and spirits than beer, but I do enjoy the occasional American craft beer (Ommegang's a favorite of mine, as are most things from Founders, Bell's, and a small regional brewery in North Carolina called Foothills).  Also Belgian abbey ales and tripels when it's a bit warmer, and the occasional German doppelbock and English stout when it's cold. 

 

 


 

Clags, last night I had a dream about neat tie patterns.  I might need an SF hiatus.

I used to do quite a lot of projects in Belgium, back in the days. When you're talking about beer, no other country comes close...

Belgian beer is and always will be my favorite.

I dream about clothes or posting on SF occasionally

I'm not much of a beer drinker but Tripel Karmeliet is the best beer I've tasted.

Nothing wrong with that. I'm a big fan of Sam Adams Boston Lager. It doesn't pass bearded hipster muster, but I think it tastes good.

Me too. Growing up in California you can't help but be exposed to great wine. The Kentucky connection has instilled (distilled?) a great love of spirits in me too, especially for Bourbon.

Cross Posting this from SWD. I'm new to the business side to things and need to start developing my wardrobe for internships and such.

I currently own this J. Crew suit that I had tailored a while back, and obviously it's too tight and there's pulling at the buttons. Is there any chance I could have it let out at all, or is it far too small at this point?  The jacket is a size 40. It seems like it's decent in the shoulders, but I included a shoulder shot to see if I should size up to a 42. Any advice would be very appreciated. Apologies for the shitty photos/posture

Shiner used to be a good beer back in the '80s/early '90s, but it was unrecognizable the last time I had it. I've easily consumed my own weight in Shiner. Maybe twice my weight... shog[1].gif

ShakeEmUp, it's really hard to say much about your suit with those pictures. Maybe repost some pics where you're relaxed and standing naturally? The things you're doing with your arms are kinda weird...
