Brewing beer and watching hockey is one of the greatest pleasures in my life.

Just wish I knew more people out here who did both.

The holidays are the perfect time to watch hockey. The World Junior Hockey Championship starts December 26th. That is some of the best hockey you will see anywhere.

Homebrew and hockey are definitely a good mix!

I love watching hockey, and I love playing hockey. I love making beer, and I love drinking beer. Put them together, and it's like heaven. Except sweaty.

:off: Yea, hockey! After a two year lay off we finally got a roller rink to let us play!! I'm so friggin excited I can hardly stand it. Yes it's only roller hockey, but it's a monumental step for this state. Cripe, I hope my knee can still take a butterfly.:eek:

And yes, I will be drinking beer afterwords.:)

I found out last night that my hips can no longer take a good Butterfly....ouch. I haven't played very much over the last few years, and last night I found out why. It won't stop me from playing, but I realize I am not 180lbs and 20 years old anymore.....At 240 and 31 I am feeling the pain. Gonna keep going to try to get my weight back down.

So who is excited about olympic hockey???

There is a bar at the rink where I play, and you can go in and order case(s) of beer to your locker room for post-game!

Hah, Sabres - I've got a 42-year old barleywine I'm going to crack open when my Leafs win the Cup.
So, not any time soon then? :)

Um, let's go Sharks, all I have to say. They only work we need to do is to learn how to close out a game, and to not choke in the playoffs. Easy, right?

Maine Black Bears really need to revise their policies. We have no real hockey teams here other than Minor hockey. But a town 25km away has a Quebec Senior League team. They allow you to buy up to 12 at a time to bring back to your seats. Complete awesomeness.

They completely fund the team's travel costs with beer sales alone.
