i eat a lot of Indian food and there are some damn fine Asian beers. Taj Majal is sort of India's budweiser; Himalaya Blue (?) was really good, but i've only seen it once, and there was a Thai beer a friend used to get but the name completely escapes me at the moment.
my last year in college i took to what my roommate and i called 'the Trader Joe's Six Pack.' we'd go get six bottles of two-buck chuck (charles something-or-other... it's a lot better than you'd expect for a $2 bottle of wine, but it's still a $2 bottle of wine).
also, Atlas Peak makes a superb sangiovese.
Jamaicans drink ginger beer, actually, Dystopic, not ginger ale. Love the stuff (though I dislike ginger ale). It's non-alcoholic, of course, but still very tasty.
now that you mention it, you are absolutely correct.
-- Newcastle Brown Ale (UK)
i swear they watered down New Castle in the U.S. about 5 or 6 years ago... or there abouts. Killean's got poorer here right around the same time.
My wines local (Lodi CA).
Lodi... should i apologize? one of my old roommates is from Lodi.
My Tequila is either Herradora or Patron.
if you ever see it (and haven't tried it), i'd recommend Tarantula Azul.
Seagrams 7 and 7up or sprite is another mixer I like sometimes. Only gin I have found that I like is Blue Saphire
cheers to 7/7s, even if whiskey does make me roudy.
and agreed, the only gin worth drinking is Bombay Sapphire. especially after a big meal, i love a Sapphire martini (extra dry, just a little dirty).
(Hint: always have a buddy with a pickup truck standing by to take your broken leg drunk azz to the doctor and dump yur bike in yur driveway)
ever tried downhill ice plant surfing? hint: use an old board.
