    Trying out this beer from one of our local breweries. A rather pleasant if unusual taste.

    Nice looking McDonald's.

    And since I'm in the beer thread....I'm just trying some Negra Modelo. I'm surprised, it's actually pretty good.

    So we're on a family road trip for the weekend. Having lunch at the McDonalds in Matamata (aka Hobbiton) and they have this big picture of The Green Dragon on the wall)

    Just had a Moa Imperial Stout.

    Zym, you might try tracking some down. It had pretty much no carbonation.

    I've been successfully staying away from beer for the past few months, because of how hard the carbonation is on me. I'm a little bummed, because I do like it, but oh well. My guts thank me for it. (Beer is by no means the cause of my gut problem, but the carbonation is nothing but bad for it.)

    I really like Weyerbacher's Blithering Idiot (having one now). It's got quite a kick, though (11% ABV).

    Pain from start to handing it off after a couple of sips.
    See if you can try the Ballast Point Grapefruit Sculpin (IPA). It is like the gateway drug into IPA's! haha.

    I, personally am not the biggest fan of IPA's, but the Ballast Point Grapefruit Sculpin and regular Sculpin are quite tasty. I highly recommend it.

    As the old Irish toast so aptly puts it:
    Here's to a long life and a good one, a quick death and an easy one, a long love and a true one, a cold beer and another one.

    "TASTING NOTES:
    5 malt old dark was introduced into the Speight's range in 1992 to meet consumer demands for the classic 'dark' beer. No prizes for guessing why it got its name. By carefully selecting, roasting and matching 5 separate malts we have crafted a dark beer that gives rich, creamy, chocolate fudge flavours swiftly followed by coffee overtones. Perfect for warming the cockles on a stormy night."

    Fortunately, whisky does not cause such a problem for the ol' gut.

    Actually, doesn't matter HOW they taste, they're full of hops, and hops is now an established health food. It's even good for my migraines.
    I haven't tried them, because I have no issues with gluten. I believe Omission brewery has an entire line of gluten-free beers.
