The hops are free, so what's worth drinking?

    Our fair state has joined the 20th century, just in time for the 21st.


    I drink very little beer myself, and I kind of doubt I would be interested in much of the new stuff, since I don't like bitter drinks. But is there any gourmet stuff I ought to give a chance?

    In Alabama?

    You might try to find some decent tap water.

    Oh, I get it. An Alabama joke. ::)

    Our tap water is fine; it's our sewers that have problems...

    And yeah, it's been so long since I saw a decent beer... was a treat when Publix had Labatt's Blue on sale tonight; tho I was intrigued by a Blue Moon-like beer with the orange already in.

    Dixie, the Belgians do wonderful things with beer. Not necessarily bitter.

    But you have to not mind floaties in it.

    I'm a big fan of Blue Moon, and today I had a beer similar to that inside the bar at the Verizon Center. It's called Shock Top. Very good. Very expensive, although location had more to do with price than quality.

    Like Blue Moon, it's a great beer on a hot day.

    Shock Top is an A-B product. I drink it only when I go to my laundromat during happy hour.

    Not sure how long it'll take for you to get the high-test stuff in Bamer, and I have no clue if these guys distribute that far South, but I'm a huge Southern Tier Brewery fan. If you can get your hands on one of their big-bottle beers, do it. Their Unearthly IPA is my favorite pale ale, I've heard marvelous things about their creme brulee stout, which is supposed to roll out soon, and their Pumking is quite possibly the greatest beer I've ever had. We're talking 9-12% beers, so they'll knock you on your ass.

    I've tried 90-something different types of beers at Taco Mac now. If we had a low alcohol percent law, I wouldn't have had nearly that count.
