d) I need no e-peen...i have a real peen...
e) I just noticed my coffee maker turned off...i have to pour the rest of my coffee before it gets cold
well...I'm not going to ask for verification of the real peen...might violate the TOS, not to mention scare small children. Either way, thanks for the horrible mental image.

Have yourself a bottle from the Rogue brewery. I prefer Dead Guy Ale, but you can try whatever strikes your fancy.
Granted all the good beers are micro-brews, but there are still a bunch of great brews out there made in America.
I love Troegs locally here in Hershey, PA (ever hear of Hershey Chocolate? Same town).
Not a fan of the hoppy stuff but their dopplebock is quite tasty!

My buddies and I have this argument all the time Yuengling is consistently mediocre wherever you go...I'm not much of a lager guy though.

I'm sticking to my Killian's though.

Sweet! I love micro brews as well

Where I grew up (in Oklahoma) and when I grew up (in the 1970s and 1980s), you were pretty much talking these as your choices:
- Old Milwaukee
I've come to revel in the microbrews and even in making my own beers. But, I think that's partly because of growing up when I'd go to a party it was Coors or Bud that was in the keg or ice chest...not something tasty...
But, Guinness just seems like a beefy beer...that quenches my sense for a full taste...doesn't taste like I just opened a bottle of Canada Dry soda water.
Guinness is not the best porter, BUT you can get it anywhere and it's always good!
