:confused: :confused: :confused: :confused: I just had 2 more tonight, and they kick a$$:D

What is your preference for beer in the bottle?

How about Pacifico, with a lime wedge jammed down inside it? Well, no, but do you have Corona Lite.?.. :devil:

In terms of bottled beer, my current favorites are Stone Ruination, Stone AB, St. Stan's Red Sky, Grant's IPA, Ballantine IPA, Pinkus Ur Pils, Pilsener Urquel, Sam Smith's India Ale (dark bottle), Orval ale, Cooper's Stout and Lindemans' Kriek. Throw in a Bohemia or a Humbolt Hemp for good measure.

Newcastle Brown is a great beer, it's just that the clear bottles allow it to be damaged by light (fluorescent, solar) so easily that it's not in top form when sold by the six pack. :monkey:

Ballast Point is a homebrew shop gone wild...the guy just opened a commercial brewery a few years after selling supplies out of a freakin' closet, over near University of San Diego. Now, he brews darn good stuff, but I haven't seen it in bottles recently. It's carried by several restaurants, for sure.

Loo, are you buying it in bottles from Whole Foods, maybe? Damn hippies get all the good brew...

No.
Actually i have ben buying it from a local conveinance store in La Jolla and it's sold in the 22oz. bomber bottles for $3.25.

I drink alot and i think they are pretty potent.

We should hook up sometime and drink a few.
Beyond Bikes is having a Kranked 5 movie deal at some place around Lake Hodges in 2 weeks.
Ya gonna come out for freebies?
They had a keg of NewCastle (Much better than bottle) last time and boy did i get "tore up from the floor up"!

I think you were there but we never met.

A keg of Newcastle is a really good thing! I missed the keg at the "opening" party because I went up the night before to get my parts for a build-out I was hot to finish. Hey, I will be all over going up for the Kranked 5 thing. When and Where (I'll go look at the site)?!

Erm???? On tap??? Newkie brown is a bottled beer only isn't it? I've certainly never seen it on tap in England (this includes having spent many hours in pubs in Newcastle)

Really? Madness..... Must be on export only.... perhaps it's because you get enough sun to cause damage through the clear bottle.....

Anyway, preferences for bottled beer, Chimay has to be near the top. Batemens XXXB is a realy good bitter if you don't want something quite as thick or alcoholic as the chimay....

Don't know if you get Theakstons in the US, but if you do then Old Peculiar is an excellent ale - but somewhat addicitive, and causes serious co-ordination issues after about the 8th pint.

not sure, its dark
here is some interesting trivia....




The 1980s saw Newcastle redesign its bottle label and adopt the slogan "The One and Only," an affectionate moniker for the original which was popularized in 1928 by the Newcastle Journal. A new advertising campaign, entitled "The Dog," exploited the North East euphemism of "I'm going to walk the dog" meaning "I'm off to the pub for a bottle of Newcastle Brown Ale."

Newcastle Brown's growing worldwide popularity even spurred an Australian brewer to launch a hostile bid for the company in 1988, but Scottish & Newcastle was not about to take this sitting upside down. This attempted seizure, in turn, fostered an intense backlash in Newcastle, with locals passionately rallying behind our "Keep Us on Top!" campaign. As a sign of solidarity, the Newcastle Brown label was inverted until the takeover was quashed.

(starting late here, apparently!)

Newcastle is the only beer I regularly have around the house... About 10 friends and I get a keg of it every year for the Superbowl. Mmm.. Newcastle keg...

Because of this thread, I am going to pick up a 12-pack today.

If you ask me, everyone should drink Newcastle.. The world would be a better place. The only reason people get violent when they're drunk is because they're drinking <choose: bud, miller, natural light, keystone, or insert your favorite cheap beer> and it tastes like someone pissed in it. Who wouldn't get mad if someone pissed in your beer?

Geez...

Thought this thread needed a refresher...

Played drinking Downhill Domination with Newcastle last night ... every time the person playing knocks someone off their bike, everyone else has to drink.

Mmm... Newcastle...

News Bulletin: More Newcastle happenings last night...

Me and one of my old high school buddies, two twelve packs, two pizzas and a season of The Family Guy on DVD.

Life is good.

And Newcastle only makes it better.

there should be some RIDE mixed in somewhere in there ;)
The ride comes before the family guy, beer, and pizza - who wants to ride drunk and stuffed with grease and cheese??
