Well thought I'd start a thread for myself and other alcoholics. LHMark and well, I cant think of any others, come to mind.
So, Questions are:
1) Whats your favourite lager?
2) Can you name the difference between beer and lager?
3) How much do you drink in a night?

1. Brooklyn Dark Lager
2. I'm pretty sure its different in the way its brewed giving it a different consistancy
3. Well this week I've been drinkin Absolut every night this week, though I will be drinking Shiner this weekend, a nice Texas brew they started to sell out of state.



It's not your typical water beer. It's heavier. I'm gettin tired of the light beers.

1)Honey Brown
2)There is no difference in beer and lager. Lager is a type of beer, ale is the other. Lagers are fermented longer and at cooler temps than ale. Also, in a lager, the yeast does its work at the bottom of the mix, and in an ale the yeast works at the top.
3)6-8 beers and 6-8 Long Islands and/or Jager bombs.

And you?

1) Whats your favourite lager? Stella Artois, such a lovely pint  Wink

2) Can you name the difference between beer and lager?

The World's biggest category of beers, lagers are all brewed using lager yeasts that sink to the bottom of the brewing vessel. Brewed at a lower temperature than ales, they are stored (or lagered, from "lager" in German) for up to 6 weeks before being sold. Most mainstream American beers are lagers, as are most German beers.

3) How much do you drink in a night?
Depends, sometimes 5, sometimes 10, sometimes 15. More, when I'm at parties though.

1) Whats your favourite lager?

Depends what mood I'm in, usually Budweiser, Stella or the weird complimentary stuff they serve in Wetherspoons on Curry night.

2) Can you name the difference between beer and lager?

Lager is brewed using bottom-fermenting yeast, and at a colder temperature for longer. Beers are fermented using top-fermenting yeasts, and heated during fermentation to between 15 and 25 degrees, and brewed for shorter periods than lagers.

3) How much do you drink in a night?

Depends, if I'm only out for a quick session at lunchtime then usually 4 or 5 pints, on a night out (i.e. a drinking session) I usually drink about 3 pints an hour, and generally drink for about 4 - 5 hours.

1. I try not to, at least in public anyway. Coors Light is passable if push came to shove.

2. I don't class lager as beer! Lager is the fizzy stuff you get from the electric pumps; beer is the stuff you get hand pulled from barrels. Beer in this sense being real ale rather than the catch-all lager.

3. On a drinking night, maybe 6-8 pints in public, less if drinking at home.

See you at the Bath beer festival in October - I'll be behind (and under) the bar!

1) I stick to the US Domestic brews... Miller High Life, and Bud. Not much on lagers or dark ales. Although I do like Lowenbraue(sp) and Hieneken a lot too

2) BAB got the differences correct, or lack of differences as it were.

3) After work, we stop by the local "do-drop-in" for a few. Usually I'll have a couple beers, and a couple shots of tequila. If I'm not in a mood for beer, I'm known to have a few bourbon on the rocks... Preferably Jim Beam.

It's a tie between Newcastle and Stella.

Depends on my purpose that night. If I'm trying to get drunk, about 6 Newcastles will have me feeling pretty good. When I was in college still, I would probably drink 6-9 a night, and feel fine. I can't drink like I used to.

Usually I drink wheat beer and pils but when I have to choose a favourite lager I would say Stella and Foster's.

Quoting Gkirk (Thread starter):

Another brewing process, don't know the details though.

Quoting Gkirk (Thread starter):
3) How much do you drink in a night?

It depends, within the week much less than on weekends. Sometimes 4 on an evening, sometimes 14 on an evening when I am on a party. My record is 20 (a whole case of Erdinger 0.5 liter bottles), a buddy and I bought a case for each of us, we started at 7 PM and finished the 20th bottle at 6 AM on the following morning (and beside we even smoked a substance which contains THC).

Stella completely slipped my mind, its tough as hell to get it on tap around here. I know one place that does it and its like $5.50 per pint.

Alaskan Amber is based on a recipe from a turn-of-the-century brewery in the Juneau area. It was voted "Best Beer in the Nation" in the 1988 Great American Beer Festival Consumer Poll.

ANCflyer, you have good taste in beer. Bitburger is one of my favorites, as well as Paulaner Hefe-Weizen, Warsteiner Dunkel, Spaten Optimator, and Southern Tier Phin & Matt's Extraordinay Ale.

Warsteiner Dunkel

What?  Wow!

Warsteiner Dunkel isn't available here in Germany but once I heard that many other German breweries do also brew dark beers only for the export market, Beck's and Holsten for example.

In my opinion is everything what comes from the Warsteiner brewery just nasty. Their Pils is the most disgusting I ever drunk and easily the worst beer which is available in Germany, it is really beyond me that so many people are drinking that piss.

Warsteiner pils is pretty mediocre mass-market beer, about as good as Becks. But the Dunkel we get here is surprisingly good. Dry, roasty malt flavor with just enough hops to take the edge of the sweet aftertaste. We'll get you some if you come stateside next spring.

I think that Beck's is better than Warsteiner. By the way, did you ever noticed that Beck's is tasting different in Germany and abroad (even than the Beck's that LH is serving)? A buddy and I once took a bottle from a LH plane and compared the tast with a Beck's from a bottle we bought in a local supermarked, the difference is not big but you can taste it.

You can be sure that I'll show up in your area next spring and I would love to drink a dark Warsteiner! Of course I will bring a lot of German beers for you guys!
