Yes, I'm a cheap sucker ...but its cheap!

  1. My wife sent me to the store for sour cream... and beer.
    Well, she didn't really send me for beer, but I figure since I'm out, it's Monday and there's no beer in the fridge what the hell.
    Normally, I buy Busch Light (bottles when I can find them) or Bud Light. Bud gives me a headache.
    Bud Light's on sale $8.99, but wait what's this? Steel Reserve? $5.99 a case, humm?
    Intersting. A beer I've never heard of. Only two 12 packs left, good till Nov. 12 according the box and its only $5.99.
    1993-94ish ...
    Deadeye Dick on the radio, 'Boomerang' on the Tube and old WVGolf on the fraternity couch settling in for a night on hazy memories with an ice-cold 12 pack of Schlitz Ice.
    Worst headache ever ... worse than the weekend of Red Dog and Big Macs. Even worse than the 10 cent Black Label keg night at the local backwoods bar.
    It was cheap and I got what a paid for ... a cheap drunk, a fat chick named Bonnie and memories and a rash I couldn't scratch off with a VD comb the size of Rhode Island and enough cream to fill Lake Huron.

    Tonight, It'll be Steel Reserve, Law & Order and my lovely wife.

    Anybody had any experience with it? I never heard of it before....

    If you enjoy the memory of drinking Schlitz ...
  4. Steel Reserve update: Cold silver can, 6.0 alcohol by volume.
    I'm guessing its brewed by one the big companies, who are trying a market a different beer.
    Can says The Steel Brewing Company of Fort Worth. Spin it around and it says product of Milwaukee. Box says a product of Trenton Ohio. Who the hell knows.

    On a side note: The wife is quaffing a glass of Carolina Red, a product the Duplin Winery. Very good. If there's any wine drinkers out there, I would highly recommended the Duplin Wine. It's made in North Carolina. We discovered it at the OBX.

    Ummmmm yeah. As a veteran of the Steel Reserve, all I'm going to say is this. We used to drink 40s of the shit back in college to get really hammered. And most of the time, it only took one to get me going and if you did two, you were going to wind up somewhere naked and not remember how or why you got there.
    And the hangover will be the worst thing you ever experience.
    Just thought I'd warn you now.

    Could be worse, you could be drinking Camo.

    Why not pull a Billy Joel and go straight for the shoe polish?

    Then again, it could be the early morning bout of diarrhea that's especially unpleasant.

    I like Bud but it gives me a headache, too. Why is that?

    Well, I can't find Moe's Tavern for a Duff ... or a Fudd.

    Re: Songbird's Bud headache

    I think it's all the shit they put in it to make it foam up unnaturally.  A good lager doesn't spooge up in the glass like that synthetic crap.

    That, and the gnomes who piss in it.  Not only are they mean, nasty gnomes with foul-smelling piss, they're Cardinals fans.
