This may be true... but it IS delicious. Tastes just like one of those fireball candies. I wonder if it would mix well with pumpkin cream liqueur...

To be fair, I'm wondering what everything would taste like mixed with pumpkin cream liqueur because I have some that I've never tried.

I don't generally like whiskey (or whisky), so I'm okay with that title Laughing

I generally prefer vodka, Stolichnaya in particular. As for the Grey Goose vodka thing, a number of people have called them out for essentially being a standard-grade vodka with the price jacked up because it is A) Made in France, and B) They advertise it as a premium product.

Still in WA. It's still weird about hard liquor. We privatized liquor sales, but limited licenses to stores with 10,000sqft of retail space unless there was no liquor store in something called the "trade area," which is apparently an undefined term. So all the grocery stores sell liquor, and there's the odd liquor store. BevMo has applied to open stores.


And then there's Canada, where (in BC at least, not certain about the other provinces) you have to go to a liquor store or a wine store to buy any kind of liquor (other than de-alcoholized... ewwww). Always thought it was weird going into Washington state and seeing booze on the local grocery store shelves.

That used to be how we sold hard alcohol. Grocery stores only carried beer and wine. Florida is even weirder... they have drive-up liquor stores. "One beer, please!" They even serve them cold.

I'm trying to decide if that is hilarious or terrifying. Probably both.

So, how much do people generally spend on alcohol? Canada seems much more expensive than the US, and Cuba has both beat I think ($5 (Cuban $ is about on par with US $) for a bottle of 15 year rum? Yes please).

EDIT: Also, drinking Mojitos and Pina Coladas on the beach in Cuba has to be one of the most pleasant things I've ever done, followed by a cuban cigar.

I am pretty sure that Texas changed the laws but I know they used to be able to drink and drive as long as they weren't drunk. I hear tale they still have strip-clubs where you can bring in your own beer though, they are fucking classy like that.

In Pennsylvania, you can't have "strip clubs" in places where alcohol is served. They have to be go-go bars, i.e. things and pasties, but no full nudity. IF it's full nudity, it's BYOB (bring your own booze).

Or maybe that's Jersey. Or maybe both, It's been 12-13 years since the last time I went to a strip club. Strip clubs were WAY more exciting when I was 16-17 and knew I wasn't supposed to be allowed in there.

I drank a LOT of beer yesterday. It was Oktoberfest with tastings of EVERYTHING! Including the last sample of Terra Incognita, a collaboration between two of my favorite breweries - Sierra Nevada and Boulevard. The Boulevard rep took my sampling glass out of my hand just so he could give me the last sample. Facinating stuff - it smelled like _funk_ but tasted like a good sour. I am in love with sour beers.

I don't like sour beers alone, but I think they pair with a stout really well... Plus double fisting makes you look cool.

I like sour beers all buy themselves. They really, really hit the spot for me. We have some Tart Lychee sour beer by New Belgium in the house (and mother of god it is amazing on tap) and we drank the Love Child #2 by Boulevard already (NOM NOM NOM!!!). Sour beers are the thing that I can sit and drink all day without getting bored. I am really excited that they are becoming more and more popular so I can try more of them.

Oh! Avery has a white IPA in cans that is the closest to Boulevard's Smokestack #2 White IPA (which was just amazing). Totally worth a try - not hoppy like the IPA title would indicate.

I'm wary of all IPA's... I drink mostly stouts and porters. I like my beer dark, heavy, and with lots of flavors. Like a meal in a glass. Everyone seems to love IPA's, though. Every bar has at least two on tap here.

Have you tried any of the Dog Fish Head IPA's? The 90 minute is crazy good.

Also, on a darker note, I'm a fan of Magic Hat's Ravell (it's a porter)

Yeah, it has to do with the heavy taxes on the stuff up here. I think smokes are far more expensive north of 49, too.

In Ontario, you can only buy beer in beer stores or liquor stores. In Newfoundland (as in Quebec) you can also buy beer in a corner store.

A six-pack of domestic horse-pee (Molson's etc) is $10-$11.

EDIT: Just went to the Beer Store site. They have Molson Canadian listed as a "premium" beer. Shocked
