Im close in that respect.
Like most, I prefer a beer to be cold. But I think it's more important if you're drinking a lager or pilsner type beer. Ales seem to be able to handle things better once the initial chill is gone. I've tried to get my wife more into drinking ales for that very reason. By the time she gets to the bottom of a Stella for instance, it's pretty tough to handle. In contrast, I've had a lukewarm Lagunitas at the beach before, and while I obviously enjoyed the cold ones more, it was still good.
A good Oktoberfest is still a delight at room temp. I don't care to try any others like that though.
Hey, I'm not knocking you guys, I'm just saying what works for me given my experiences where if one can have a COLD beer, any fookin beer at all, it's the best beer ever. Everything else in this thread is icing. You have no idea how many times I gladly paid $5-$8 for a can of cold heiniken or stella and in those circumstances they were hands down the best beers EVER. PS That said, I'd still take a cold Stella or Bud Lite Platinum over just about anything else. I just like what I like. Same with vodka, it's practically all I drink and I only drink one brand, not because I'm a vodka snob, but because it's the one i like.
IPAs are not my thing. Give me a lager any day of the week and preferably before work. Also love the porters and a huge fan of room temp, tapped, Guinness.
Guess what? When it's the only thing available, I'm happy to drink a COLD, sh*tty IPA too! And yes, being an Eastern European traveler, I guess I'm technically a COLD lager fan over other beers.
Love German stuff and many of them settled in TX so a lot of stuff out of the Big State is also very good IMO.
You don't strike me as a Tito's guy.
Tito's is for douche bags and college students who think it's cool (which means "douche bag").
My wife bought me a mini growler of Orlando Brewing Papa Midnight. It's an Imperial Stout at 9%. Really solid beer. I'm not the type to usually notice the 'notes of flavor' but you could definitely pick some out in this. Noticed almond, coconut, chocolate and coffee. I don't think they sell it in bottles, only growlers. If you ever find it available to you and enjoy Imperial Stout, definitely give it a shot.
After the great weekend last week, I didn't have it in me to bring a negative to the table. But after my great experience with Saugatuck Beam Me Up Stouty(rum barrel aged), I gave their Bourbon Barrel Imperial Stout a try after the game. Haven't been that disappointed in a stout in a long time. It really fell flat and simply tasted like an over-the-top porter where they stopped trying to perfect. I love all beer, but if you're charging close to $7 for a single, you've set your own bar pretty high. I still recommend the Beam Me Up, but definite pass on this one.
I have a bottle of Tito’s that I keep for a certain buddy that comes over to watch ball ️ ️. Dude only drinks vodka redbulls . I tell him to knock it off and find another mixer or he’s gonna have a heart attack at 35.
Making it a double vodka Red Bull smooths out the Red Bull. Tell him to try it with Russian Standard.
I’ll relay the message my friend . Assuming the RS is your one and only, correct?
When not in Russia, Belarus or Ukraine, yes. It’s what they drink abroad too. That or Stoli. The regular RS is good for mixing, RS Platinum worth the little extra if shooting cold. PS Every club I’ve ever been to in that part of the world has a cold bottle of vodka with six Red Bull’s on the menu set up in a clear plastic holder that looks like a revolver cylinder with bottle in middle and Red Bull in six cylinders around it. Law, this is my Eurotrash/Serebro girls showing
Stoli is what I’ve always preferred. Nice bite to it that you didn’t find in the trendy vodkas. Makes the best bloody Mary’s.
What dafuq did you expect after reading those names?
Try Russian Standard, it’s a step up from Stoli with exactly what you’re talking about... nice bite, but clean with none of that sh*tty after taste like Grey Goose, Kettle One or the others
I’ll give Detroit credit. He knows his vodka . Stoli is good stuff. I’ll be on the lookout for the russian standard .
If you’re in FL, my Publix has it and so does ABC in Gainesville, so it’s around. PS Stoli comes in a 3 liter bottle with a pumper top... so I’ve heard.
