Steel reserve maybe? It's actually not too bad as long as it's ice cold.
Regarless of the temperature, I can't seem to put that stuff down. I like Crazy Stallion though, or maybe a good old fashion, Olde English!

+2 to Orfy.

I can make wine from fruit.

Oh, and there are wild hops waiting for me to harvest them all over the place over here.

Favorite beer? MINE.

Interesting article a I read a few weeks ago in the paper, said that despite the economy being in the toilet right now, beer sales haven't changed much and people have not compromised their taste for cheaper beer.

Beer will get you through times of no money better than money will get you through times of no beer.

Bad economy's a reason to drink, if there ever was one.

As much as we harp on hooch around here we might all be sharing hooch recipes in the not so distant future

Say what you want about hurricanes, but they have kept Louisiana's economy on the up and up for the past several years with no sign of going down anytime soon.

I agree with Orfy.

As an aside. I tend to think of it like this. Did anyone ever think we'd have a "Hop Shortage" and see the prices skyrocket? Make sure you all buy some extra grain to have around. Worse case (as long as you store it properly), you'll make out because the prices of grain seem to be continually going up as well. Best case, if we do have shortages (for whatever reason) at least you can be brew!

Brew what you like. Do this, and you will find your inner brewer.

Well, apple juice is still pretty cheap, and not likely to run out or become too scarce. That, dextrose and montrachet are pretty affordable. I stick to homemade apfelwein.

And I'm a .308, 45 acp, and 12 ga magnum kinda guy. And i'm stocked up already.

Once a month I buy enough to last me the month of:

Food Staples.
Pet food
Beer Supplies
(I also make sure I have fuel money to get to work)

Anything else can whistle. I don't need anything else.
Have a beer on me.
