    The RSR Annual "What's Everyone Drinking?" Thread



    Now that the Ravens are on top of the football universe, it's slow here at RSR. Thus, the OT stuff is allowed to flow once again.

    While we wait for the start of another football season, what better way than to pass the time by shootin' the shit about libations?

    So lets hear it, folks!

    You beer heads, please post whatever suds are tickling your taste buds these days.

    Wine drinkers, share whatever dead grape has your heart right now.

    Cocktail crowd, let us know what's cooling in that rocks glass of yours.

    My current choices ....

    Beer -- Tin Cup Ale from Baton Rouge. Fell in love with this in NOLA during Super Bowl weekend.

    Wine -- Arista Vineyards Zinfindel. Perfect with a filet! Found it

    Cocktail -- Moscow Mules. Can't get enough of them. Had a proper one in Berlin in August (copper cup and all) and fell in love with it. Perfect for those 90+ degree / 90% humidity days.

    I'm in Oahu right now and while the beer selection is pretty bland, the cocktails are outstanding. I don't even pick anymore, I just keep asking my server to bring me their favorites.

    Best one I had was an Absolut and tonic watermelon smoothie with fresh pineapple and ginger.

    When I do go beer it's either Longboard or Rolling Rock. Nothing great or even very good, but when it's 85 and the tropical sun is beating down, nothing beats a cold beer.
    My motto was always to keep swinging. Whether I was in a slump or feeling badly or having trouble off the field, the only thing to do was keep swinging. -Hank Aaron

    Jealous ASB ....

    Mrs HR and I were going to hit Hawaii before the baby was going to be born but we switched to NOLA once the Ravens made the Super Bowl.

    Be safe.

    I picked up a 6-er of Lagunita's Brown Shugga Ale.




    Not bad. Not my favorite from them though. Their "Lil Sumpin Sumpin" IPA is phenomenal. I also enjoy their "Hop Stoopid" ale.

    As far as a sipper...I have a bottle of Feckin Irish Whiskey. REALLY tasty stuff. It doesn't have that bite that you find in Bushmills. Jameson 18 and Red Breast are still two of my favorite, but Feckin is damn good.

    Well, 10 days ago I'd have said Macallan 12 year -- but I finished my Christmas bottle in the wee hours after the .... Ravens Won the Super Bowl!!!! AGAIN!!! (God I love saying that....). Looking forward to getting my birthday bottle in a few weeks.

    In the meantime, it'll be the bottles of Argentinian Malbec our next door neighbors gave us, along with our ever-present cans of Modelo, which goes really well with where we live -- in the South, by the ocean, where more often than not, even in winter, the tropical weather prevails over the cold, dry air from the north; Modelo might as well be the official beer of this area, and the canned version is generally preferred to the bottled...

    Going to Jamaica and Grand Cayman in March, looking forward to whatever the local specialties there might be; I will be sure to report back my findings.
    No one likes us, and we don't care.

    I enjoy a Modello Especial with a lime every now and then. I prefer that to Corona.

    Both way better than Corona.
