..to fetch beers from th' garage 'fridge as I read and post is gettin' annoyin'... I either gotta move th' 'pooter closer to th' "locker" or grow longer ARMS!

*sheesh*

P.S... The: "Oh, Princess?!? Fetch me a BEER!" has netted me (so-far) multiple bruises and several nights onna couch, FWIW. /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/wink.gif

I've GOT "oneadoze" not ten steps a-port... it's as nunyas says: 'desire for convenience'... Homer Simpson has a hat I covet.

Rich: My frellin' WIFI laptop took a powder, and I used to set it on top of the garage beer locker to read/post. Looks as if it's time to replace th' thing. Then it becomes a matter of which direction to set the chair....

You silly, silly men. If you would drink something that comes in a 750mil bottle rather than a 12ouncer, you wouldn't have to worry about refrigeration or getting up and walking a few feet to fetchabrew...

ummm, Tony: My maths skills were honed well: I kin kount ta 12 (half-a-kase), then dublit to equel ONE... then dublit and arrive at both cases... 'sides: I have friends who're lawyers... they have double cases alla time! AND they seem to fit 'em in to a proper schedule.

I live in a land where Augie Busch has a monopolistic lock on the sale of what is called "beer"... It ain't ~pleasant~ but it is ~so~. There is a truely Irish pub a few miles from us, owned/operated by ex-pat Irish brothers. I can get a near-proper pint of Guinness there. It's a treat I indulge in a few times a year.

OOoohhh!!! Herself's Birthday is this Friday!!! A good plausible excuse!! /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/cheers.gif /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/thirsty.gif

My area can best be described as the front line of a clash between hillbillies & city folk.

Fortunately several good restaurants have popped up that cater to the type of people that the 3 colleges in the area attract.

This is a relatively recent development and one that provides good Guinness drinking opportunities.

The difference of culture can be interesting.

One night while having a pint........
Overheard a visitor to the area say he had just hit a deer on the way to the restaurant.
His wife still looked very shaken by the whole experience.......
Two guys in pickup trucks apparently stopped to ask him if he wanted the corpse.
The first was disappointed in the condition of the deer and left.....
The second gutted it out in front of the visiting professor and his wife, chucked it in the truck & sped off.
He was describing the whole incident in great, astonished detail.

Hope the locals don't scare em all away.

We have it pretty good here in Northern Colorado. Other than the Bud plant outside Fort Collins and the home of Coors just down the road, Fort Collins also has four microbreweries, all of which have at least two star beers out of the five to six that they offer. Plenty of pubs with Guinness as well as English brews. Even the Liquor stores have good selections of beer and ale in this area. /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/thirsty.gif

I never drank a beer that I didn't like. They are all better than whatever is next. Makes the selection easy.

Ummm - that would be "Tres Equis", JB! If it's Mexican Beer you're into, I like Tecate and Bohemia.

And if you like Killian's, you'd like our Blackhorse Pub's "Barnstormer Red" - my personal favorite down the street here.
