Ebay rules.

Last summer I was at Busch Gardens in Williamsburg, VA and my wife and I had dinner at the Irish Pub there--in the pub they serve Bare Knuckle Stout, brewed by Budweiser in the New Hampshire brewery I believe. Its pretty good stuff. Real dry stout along the lines of Guinness. Anybody ever tried this stuff?

Well, I found a cool tap handle and 8 glasses on Ebay last night....I can't wait to get it for my new kegerator. Now I just have to brew another stout!

That's awesome! Didn't think Bud pulled anything like that, but hey...more power to 'em!!! I still think the mass produced commercial beers should put out a line of finer brews. Sure, it'll cost more, but I'd like to see what they'd be capable of....

Bud is trying that currently, with the one they call "select" I believe....I haven't tried the beer yet, probably will sometime just to see what its all about.
Years ago Miller tried it too. They had a brew they just called "Miller". It wasn't too much different if I remember correctly. Darker, slightly more malty version of High life.

I'm not one of those people that constantly denounces macro swill--I drink it. I happen to love High Life. I don't think there is a better beer on the planet on a hot summer day after mowing the lawn. I could care less for the light beers by Miller and Bud or most of Budweiser's beers in general, but I'm always open to trying it--or drinking it if there isn't anything else around.

Ahh, the champage of beers I'll admit to liking those for a mid-afternoon NFL game. I was raised on that stuff coming from Milwaukee... Also a Tecate with a lime at the pool is nice when it's 105+ out here (AZ). No stout or porter when its that hot!! Corona blows IMO though. I just can't imagine anyone liking that swill. I don't know if I've ever had one that wasn't skunked up.

Before I head out, we need to sit down and pull together a good stout recipe...to honor the new tap, if nothing else. We'll each provide 1 sixer of stout of our own choosing, to you know, help the creative process and stuff.
