Red Truck, Colorado brewed eh? It sounds familiar, just don't know if I've seen it on the shelf or just have heard of it before. Will have to try it. I'll keep a look out for it next time I make another beer run. There's lot of choices out there with all the small micro-breweries around. I've had a lot of good ones, but also a lot of bad ones too. I guess what it all boild down to is what tastes one acquires. When I reached legal drinking age, micro brew and craft beers were making their way into the market. As spoiled as I've become with all the choices of full flavored beers I get a bit tired of the over useage of Hops in most American micro brew styles. There are just some beer styles that are by definition not supposed to be overly hopped. It's hard to find a good balance between malt and hops with American micros anyway. I've always prefered malty brews.
As a result I still from time to time go back to the same beers I first came of age drinking....the American macro lager. As a teen while mowing the lawn during those hot summers I'd occasionally sneek either a Coors or a Miller from a fridge my parents kept in the garage . Dad either never noticed or didn't seem to care that I'd snag some because he rarely ever drank Don't know why he ever bought beer.
Couldn't resist reserecting this thread. Sometimes I just have to talk about things other than firearms and hunting.
Coors Winterfest beer has been once again released after a brief retirement. Actually it's now know as just Winterfest by (AC Golden Brewing Co). Not a bad beer, a little bitter than I recall it being from before it's retirement. If any of you here who live in Colorado are into beer Winterfest is once again available. Ive always been a big fan of Coors Banquet, but was always happy when Winterfest arrived.
Scotland is known for its quality ales, we have alot of places here that make it and i was at a beer fest not long ago, it was amazing :thumbsup1:
American beers (or lager) is ok but I still love our ales and the German beers too.
I agree. I certainly prefere British and Scotish brewed ales better than most American micro brewed ales. Problem with our American craft ales is the hops, more specifically the amount of hops used, way too much hops. I think the British stuff is much more complexed and tastier without being overly hopped.
I enjoy a beer (a cocktail as well) from time to time. My favorite brand is definitely Ommegang microbrew, Abbey Ale and Ommegeddon in particular.
For everyday, 'swill' , its either Genesee regular or Miller Lite, but I will accept anything that's given to me.
I'll too generally drink what ever beer I'm offered when I'm a guest. Doesn't matter if it's Ham's, Miller, PBR or whatever. I'm surely no beer snob. I do like a few craft ales, but generally I find myself buying and drinking mostly Coors Banquet beer most of the time, especially in the summer time.
One of the things I struggle with when afield is keeping my rifle clean and in good working order. Small amounts of dust and dirt collect moisture; moisture can freeze rendering your action immovable when you need it most. I have seen this happen on multiple occasions, and over time, I’ve learned the cause and how to prevent this from happening.
The first thing that you need to avoid before going afield is leaving excess oil on the gun. Oil will trap dirt and sand in all the wrong places....
