Re: Club Lounge - What are you drinking now? (Alcoholic Version)

2.5% beer is the law? You're joking. I suppose you're out of hotdogs as well, and that your potato salad is German and the coleslaw has pineapple in it...

F***ing read the first post I made about this:

Last night I went shopping after 21:00, when you can't buy anything with more than 2.8% alcohol. So I got some 2.5% alcohol rye IPA, it was really good, full of flowery hops.

You have the attention span & reading skills of a 12-year old redditer.

BTW, 15 posts in 10h to the "what are you listening" thread alone? That's sick even for you.
Maybe you should get off the interwebz for a while?

Dude, look at my eyes. I've seen shit, your opinion means nothing to me. Any comment anybody ever makes about someone else is almost always a reflection of what they hate about themselves. I'm not perfect, nobody else is either.

Alcohol. 5% proper beer alcohol, that's what I'm drinking. Perfect for spamming the "Listening Now" forum on a dull Thursday night, especially when I was tired, up too late, had to work the next morning but was still having fun by myself on this forum. No thanks to you, I guess. Try shopping earlier when your stupid laws let you buy a real beer, it might improve your attitude.

Kinda the opposite of your experience.

That sounds chill. Here we have All Day IPA at 4.7%, it is quite nice.

That betrays a very different cultural approach to drinking.

Compare to Finland:
People might whisper about your "alcohol problem" when you take a glass of wine with lunch, but it's perfectly normal to pass out drunk every saturday.
But it's getting better. People are starting to realise that "alcohol" and "culture" aren't antonyms but actually belong together.

Re: Club Lounge - What are you drinking now? (Alcoholic Version)

My wife's niece lives in Chigasaki and the other day sent us some beer from a local brewer called Kumazawa. This IPA was very nice - 6% but dry and well-hopped with a wonderful, almost grapefruit aroma.

Inspired to read more about IPA beers, discovered:
"The common story that early IPAs were much stronger than other beers of the time, however, is a myth."

Re: Club Lounge - What are you drinking now? (Alcoholic Version)

Guinness stout in a bottle. It's been a while (several years), and it tastes... earthy? Like dirt, I'm drinking chocolate-infused dirt. Probably not a fresh six-pack.

Guinness is only 3.5 or so, I think, so philosophy busted. I regularly drink IPAs that are near 7%, they taste great. I agree that higher than that things can get very iffy, it's a rare beer that tastes good at 8 or 9 percent alcohol by volume.

Two nights ago I had sauteed grouper (now called wreckfish because the tourists know that stupid term, ship wreck) with heirloom cherry tomatoes, asparagus chunks and a softly creamed corn paste with niblets thing, cooked by a Chef, exquisite. Best plate of food I've had in months. And I only had to wash all the dishes in the restaurant to get it.

Oh, and drinking Guinness...

Guinness ABV, I was short a bit, but close, it's 4.2%.

I'm celebrating, I landed the service bartender gig at the restaurant in Charleston, I'm front of house again after 2 years on dish.

Menu PDF, scroll down to 'Espresso Bar' and then down to 'Cocktails', those are the specialty drinks I'm making now, beers, ciders and wines are listed after that...

10 bucks a glass. Eh, it's a living.

I've always wanted to try one of those.

Back at it on the IPA, 8.2% ABV this time:

I was pretty sure Guinness was usually 5% in Japan, but it turns out there's a whole range:
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Guinness#Varieties

Guinness Special Export Stout at 8% might be worth trying.
