Now that is totally cool. I've had "close encounters" with horned toads, scorpians, rattlesnakes, coral snakes, sea snakes, and even a bear once, but I've never seen a tarantulla up close. Did you pick him up and let him crawl all over you?

Nah on letting him crawl on me. Guess they can bite and it's painful but you gotta piss them off. He did seem a little pissed when I took his beer away. Got all puffy and macho like he wanted to start a bar fight.

Don't care for bugs (especially scorpions!) but these guys are so big there more cuddly looking than anything and they eat scorpions and other buggers. I'm on an acre and if I go outside at night with a spotlight in July/Aug there all over the place. It's cool as their eyes glow green in the light. They live in the ground in mouse holes which is another good thing as I don't believe they cohabitate

I kept answering that I liked dark beers, lots of roasted malts, high alcohol content, but I ended up being matched with "Kangaroo Lager" or whatever it was. Come on! I don't want to spend the rest of my life with a lager!!! I want an ale!!! Preferably a stout or porter.

I see a divorce in my future.

Appropriately enough, I came up Porter. I was hesitant to answer the hot model question, thinking that'd throw it off. I don't think I've ever seen an ad with a model holding a porter or a stout...despite Guinness being "good for you."

Oh, so you're a lager kinda man eh?

I've had mixed results with lagers... some good, some bad. The last lager I tried, (pilsner) cheated on me. She was a beautiful German blonde, but a real cold (fermenting) beyotch. She left a bad taste in my mouth. I'm sure I'll see another lager, and even a pilsner, but I'll be more careful, because I don't want to get hurt again. In fact, I may have to use the old line, "Can we just be friends?"

Ales, on the other hand, are hot (fermenting). And they "put out" (shorter fermenting and conditioning times) a lot quicker. Give me a hot, ebony ale, and I'm set for life.

See, ales are like blondes. Always good looking and worth a run about. Lagers are like brunettes. Generally are pretty decent, with less numbers of quality than blondes. But, those that are at the pinnacle of beauty can really knock your socks off (Ayinger Celebrator).

(as for homebrewing, never have made a lager)

I have nothing against Ales. Have a nice English Ale bottled right now. I just prefer Lagers. The jury's still out on Porters and Stouts. Wheats are good, IPAs leave me a little puckered sometimes though. I'm not much of a hop head, but isn't that what homebrewing is all about? Making the beer you like the way you like it.
