Double Chocolate Beer Love


My normal beer of choice isn't anything unusual. I enjoy Bud Light, Dos Equis and of course Lone Star. I am a good Texan girl, ya know. But when I want to savor a beer, to revel in the flavor of a very good beer, I choose one that is not only a non-Texas brand but *gasp* not from the states at all. I prefer a beer from Wandsworth, Britain. There, I've said it. I am officially out of the closet. Established in 1831, Young's Brewery has a full line of beers with outlandish sounding names such as Kew Brew, Ram Rod, Waggle Dance and more. The one that I luxuriate in is Young's Double Chocolate Stout. Chocolate malt and dark chocolate are combined with a rich, robust beer and the end result is delightful. The liquid even feels smoother, creamier and a single glass more satisfying than a regular beer. An acquaintance of mine once remarked that sipping a Double Chocolate Stout was like drinking a beer milkshake. Won't you relish one with me sometime?

If it's gotta be yellow with head, Lonestar can't be beat. Other favorites include (in no particular order) Tsing Tao, Negra Modelo, Tecate, Bass, Harp, Sierra Nevada Pale, St. Arnold Elissa IPA, and Fat Tire. BOOOOOOO to Bud and BLECH to Coors.

gosh.....were do I begin? I love beer....mmmmm beer. I could use a cold one right now. Hell it doesn't even have to be that cold. Right now I love Delerium. Great smooth finish with a helluva kick. Chimay makes a fine brew as well. Those monks mean business when it comes to crafting a fine beverage. I love the micros...try to support the locals but like Kaya, will suck down a good ol' lonestar anytime of day. Hell they even taste better @ Ginny's on a hot sunday afternoon for Chicken Shit Bingo......;)

Beer...Beer...Beer...lets' go drink!!!

I hate beer, but that sounds worth a swish.
