What beer would you not be caught dead ordering?

Several come to mind:
Pabst Blue Ribbon

Wait one minute, what's wrong with Pabst Blue Ribbon?!?

Now hang on here guys! I am not saying Pabst is the best beer out there, in fact its not even close, but it does score very highly in two of my categories:

1) Its a great lawn mowing beer (its hot outside, you're mowing the lawn and you are looking for something light, cold, and thirst quenching. No need to get fancy, you're not going to be savoring it...you're thirsty and you need something to get the job done)

2) Beer/Price - in its price range its hard to beat!

All I'm saying is, you can order a Pabst and keep your head held high unlike some of our Ruby drinking friends lol!

Besides, when it is hot around here, the lawns are dead. If not, go in your favorite air conditioned pub and have a good beer and wait 'till tomorrow. It will be cooler.

I just had to mow this week.

A high school friend of mine who's spend the last five years living in Scotland ordered a pint of PBR last summer because he'd heard stories from me and my friends about it. He wanted to objectively compare it to a Scottish beer, Tennents, that can be purchased in the UK for roughly the same price as a Coca-Cola. After taking the first swig of his PBR, he said - and I quote -

"I never thought that I would ever, ever find a beer as terrible as Tennents - let alone worse. This is remarkable."

Well, if you're drinking PBR, I don't think "taste" is really what you are going for...

I like how the admission my one moment of drinking indiscretion has ignited such lovely discussion and mockery. At least I can proudly say I never had one of those "I only drink Boone's Farm/S. Ice/Mike's phases because beer is icky phases"...

I was a lot poorer in college. Back when you could get an 8 oz PBR for a dime in the local dive bar, our regular fare was apple "drops" from the local orchards (free) which we had pressed for $5 a barrel and made into hard cider.

Beer was hangover medicine.

Oddly enough, both are bottled at the same plant east of Los Angeles... So I guess it is all about that fresh Sierra Nevada water??

Yep. In beer land, to an extent you get what you pay for...and in the case of PBR you aren't paying for much. There's the dirt cheap stuff, the micro brews, and then there's Pliny.

Speaking of which, I talked to my Publican, and February is "the Younger" month



Pliny the Younger

11.0%ABV, 1.098 O.G, GOBS of BUs
Pliny the Younger was Pliny the Elder's nephew, in the case of this beer, the "Younger" is a triple IPA. Pliny the Younger is hopped three times more than our standard IPA, and is dry hopped four different times.
Seasonal release (February) available at the pub and for distribution.

That's right-- GOBS of BUs

it is being brewed now.

Lets see how much lawn get mowed this month

I have yet to try Pliny. I should probably put that on a "To Do Before Graduating" list. 3 more months..

you might want to consider working up

try RR's Blind Pig first.
If you like that, try Pliny the Elder

Then try the Younger. It will give you an endorphin kick.

you don't start out eating Habañero peppers, do you?

Then again, gradually wading into cold water is just torture, sometimes you just have to jump straight in and enjoy it...

(And if Blind Pig and the Elder are torture, who do I have to kill to get to that prison??)

Why do I feel like I have a dream involving a huge goblet of the Younger and a mound of Scotch eggs coming on?

I really like Walking Man's Homo Erectus and Lucky Lab's Super Duper Dog, which both appear to come in right around 100 IBU's.

Do I need more training or am I ready for the Habeñeros?

I say go for it, Grasshopper.

Just remember that the IBU and SCU(Scovil Heat Units) are both logarithmic in scale, and I'm not sure where "GOBS" is on the scale.


Or as my dad used to say "if you go in that surf and drown, don't come crying to me."

Last year Belmont Station, Horsebrass, Henry's Tavern(by Powell's), and...um...my favorite pub carried it Very Happy some suburban places, too. Use the locator, or all three have twitter feeds telling you when they tap stuff ( though sometimes they don't with PTY- see below)

They each get 2 or3 kegs maybe twice a week (Tuesday's and Fridays, I think) and a keg goes in a couple of hours.
The Horsebrass has been know to "back room" a keg for the regulars and email them the tap time.


Because of the high ABV, I think all will only serve it in 10 oz glasses. Protecting us from ourselves, I guess.

I call them a Child's portion. One smart ass wench put a rubber nipple over the glass when she served it to me.

Last year I knew it was on tap when I walked in to see 12 people at the bar. One guy had a Guiness and 11 were drinking 10 oz glasses of beer.
