    Had a nice Geary's Hampshire Ale in a properly frosted mug today at the Kennebec Tavern in Bath on the river. Very nice after a few miles of snowshoe caching!
    Sheesh! That was 30+ years ago... And the countries in Europe had so many beers - every large village had a brewery.

    I know this isn't beer, but it's a good story nonetheless.

    That whiskey has been "on the rocks" for a very long time

    I wonder if any of it will ever hit the market. Would bring a wicked price, I'd bet...

    yeah, but what a treat that would be to try some 100+ yr old whiskey! I wouldn't mind enjoying some of that history.

    You birds stick with the nasty beer swill. The whiskey is mine!
    I have no enemies, but I'm intensely disliked by my friends.

    In another thread, "Sam Adams Noble Pils" was mentioned. Since RULost2? and I are in Massachusetts - the state with a liquor store on nearly every corner - I managed to pick up a 6-pack of this stuff.

    Sheesh! GRRREAT! I'll stick with the barley/water/hops!

    (We took a different route, not through Boston, so we didn't tour the Sam Adams brewery as we planned. And since we're supposed to have a blizzard tomorrow, we probably won't make it on this trip. But the liquor store is only a mile away, and I have 4WD...)

    I've got some connections, if you need any support I can have a few cases dropped in by helicopter...

    Heck, Bruce, your memory is fading. Every SMALL village had a brewery. Every large village had two or three! Cities...four or five!! At least it was that way in Germany.

    Sheesh! Although I lived there for 7 years, I left Europe 25 years ago. At my age, I can barely remember being there! LOL!
