    Woo buncha old bastards drinking around the table talking about BBS's and shit. Finally I'll be on the other side of those SysOp gatherings back
    in the 90's and I can drink. :)

    The last time I saw another BBS person was about 2016. It was nice! And prior to that was like 2006. They're out there, somewhere!

    Good choices. The darker the better, except Guinness. As for scotches, I

    I thought I liked all dark beer until I had a home-made one that was too dark.

    All the major brands (Heineken, Becks, St Pauli Girl, etc) taste great to me, but I was at some restaurant in Albuquerque where they make their own beer,
    and I thought "the darker it is, the more it will taste like Guiness, and the more I will like it," but I was wrong! The waitress was nice enough to switch it for a lighter, more manageable one.

    What's up with that stuff? I thought the dark color came from the roasting,
    not from the alcohol content.

    I guess too extreme might not be always good. I prefer balance.

    Yeah, I guess they must have a good bunch of returns for that kind of "niche" product.

    I was not aware either, maybe it was just a coincidence too.

    Cheers!

    When you say balance, it makes me think about an IPA that we have in the
    states called "Sierra Nevada." It has a flavor that is on the extreme side of pale ales, and that flavor strength is balanced with its alcohol content.

    Sometimes cheap beer, like coors light, has weak flavor with seemingly high alcohol content; that's no way to enjoy a beer!

    It's my go to beer when I am south of the border.

    I haven't had a "commercial" beer in over 10 years, I always drink micro-brewery. I don't really have a goto beer, I like to try different stuff every time. Also, I don't drink much so when I drink one, I appreciate it :)

    Cheers!

    That's a good motto! Don't let the Dos Equis guy fool you though; his beer is ok if ice-cold, at best.
