You mean you do MOD work drunk

Why else would I do it?

Nah, seriously, I might drink 1-2 beers a week, usually when I'm lucky enough to be watching a late-night horror movie before bed. I haven't really had any free time for the last several months, though, I've been buckling down trying to finish up the new release (that I've been working on for over a year).

Oh, and since I'm making some (way past due) updates...


Those of you that like dark porters, AMB finally has their porter back out! I haven't seen it on store shelves yet, but you can get it at the brewery, and Dooley's (on Main Street Wilkesboro) has some on hand. It's not the cheapest porter I've ever bought, but it's definitely one of the richest!

The last time I saw those was at Lowes on 421. They had a case with 3 or 4 other flavors, but if you ask they'll happily open it up and let you make a mix-pack.


I liked those, too

If you get a chance, you should try the Saranac S'mores Porter. Lowes has it on tap right now, but I don't know how long it will last. It's definitely a sweeter dessert beer, along the same lines as the Duclaw's Sweet Baby Jesus, but I like it.

If anyone sees any Blue Moon Cappuccino Oatmeal Stouts, let me know. They're seasonal, hard to find and sell out quickly.

If your idea of a good tasting beer is Coors light..... you might be a redneck.


Coors Light is perfect for all day drinking - start around 9 am and call it a day about 12-13 hours later, or push on til the next day. I believe that's what Wade Boggs drank when he drank over 130 beers in a day.

During the warmer months I do occasionally reach for a wheat beer I'm pretty sure that I've tried both ****'s Belles and Bad Penny, too. I know that I've seen them at Lowes, and didn't Applebees carry one of them for a short period?

Jason, I read that you prefer stout but my favorite craft beer is an ale, "Angry Angel" from Big Boss Brewery in Raleigh. If you get a chance, try it. I can never find it at local stores here but they usually carry "****'s Belles" which is a Belgian wheat beer. You would probably like "Bad Penny" a stout beer.

Jason, I'm pretty sure Chendo was directing his comment to Twit. Anyone that thinks they made a taste choice by drinking coors even though they drove a Budweiser truck, is clearly a redneck
Note from GoNC: a portion of this post was removed for trolling. I have to admit that I appreciated the joke and sarcasm, but still...

Yes, I was calling out twit...not jason...

Dang ot...sounds like I missed a good one from old aficionados...someone pm it to me

Backwater, when I was younger I did appreciate liquor a lot more than beer. In my old age, though, I'm less interested in the alcohol and the buzz, and now I'm just looking for unique flavors.


I still enjoy a good, high end rum, tequila, or whiskey, but I usually save those for social settings. When I'm home alone and enjoying a movie, that's when the beer comes in

I don't want to throw too much at you guys at once, but I want to warn you guys against one of the grossest craft beers I've tried. I understand that tastes vary, and in a few years I might be different and love this one, but for now it was absolutely horrible.

That's Weyerbacher's Sunday Mole Stout.

A single beer was about $5, so I thought it had to be pretty special. And it had a cool label that pulled me in, but I should have known better; traditionally, the cooler the label the worse the flavor is. The description says, "imperial stout made with coffee, cocoa, cinnamon, and peppers". I usually like imperial stouts with coffee and a hint of a cocoa, so I thought that cinnamon and peppers might just give it an interesting kick.

Nope! That "mole" is supposed to be like mole sauce in Mexican food (pronounced MO-lay), so it had a distinct flavor of dirty feet mixed with chocolate and pinto beans.

I had never had a Mole Stout before, so for all I know, this might be the best mole stout in the world as compared to others. But it is NOT for me, and if anyone ever offers me a mole stout again I'll smile and courteously refuse while discreetly throwing up a little in my mouth.

Oh come on, the sarcasm was part of the point. That's not fair.
