Some times I drink a couple beers the night before a run will it effect the run? Do you think this affects my performance? Will the fact I have a couple beers waiting for me at the finish help inspire a faster time?

Happy New Years All - now back to beer.

Last year's "Beer" thread has been safely and securely locked away in a remote depository beneath the Appalachian Mountains ... okay, it's really on a Flash drive in my backback, but as long as no one tells, we're in good shape.

I have a lofty goal of compiling the three previous "Beer" threads into one volume by the end of this year, along with whatever we come up with in the next twelve months.

Anyone who would like to remain even MORE anonymous than their CR login name already may be, should let me know; i.e., if InsideRunner would like his super-pseudo-pseudonym to be like "IndoorRunner."

Thanks for all the good work last year.
Cheers.

Randy.

What just happened? This is too funny. How about if I delete mine and we stick with just one of these puppies?

Let's keep this one ... if my name is on record as "Topic Starter" some may consider that a bit too self-serving.

I would agree, but someone that we don't know just posted on yours with a long list of Sam Adams. It would not be poilte to just erase his/her message, plus I need to respond to calling Cherry Wheat a beer.

Perhaps there needs to be two threads: one for Beer and another for American beer, just so the two topics don't get confused.

Thanks to whomever (I threw it in the escape pod before I pulled the self-destruct)

How many different Sam Adams brews can you name?

1. Old Fizziwig Ale.

2. Christmas Porter.

3. Boston Lager.

4. Sam Adams light.

5. Cranberry Lambic (worst Sam Adams in my opinion.)

6. Winter Ale.

7. Summer Ale.

8. Chocolate Bock (does this really exist? I've never seen it.)

9. Octoberfest.

10. Black Bock.

11. Triple Bock (?)

12. White Ale.

13. Sam Adams Variety.

14. Cherry Wheat.

15. Sam Adams Boston Ale.

16. Samuel Adams Hefe-Weizen.

17. Same Adams Pilsner.

NOTE: I am not employed by or associated with the Sam Adams or Boston Brewing company in any way. In fact, I have given up drinking for 6 months to concentrate on running - just in time for baseball and Summer Ale.

Good thought, except for two rules of "Beer Thread Operation":

1) The Beer Thread can never stay on topic for too long

2) All topics must eventually become confused

There are actually between 47 and 63 rules & guidelines. No one quite knows what they all are, so we are most likely in constant violation.

Some very nice ones can be had 22 oz. at a time.

Example: Just before the Xmas holiday I had Dogfish Head Pangaea.

quote:
from the website:
Brewed with ingredients from every continet (crystallized ginger from Australia, water from Antarctica, basmati rice from Asia, etc...), this is slightly spicy ale, with a mouthful of rich flavors.

7% abv


Imagine a fruitier (orange), spicier (ginger/clove) version of DFH :60 IPA and you'd be pretty close.

All of the 10.5 beers served at Redbones are good and strong.

4) Running as a topic is not well tolerated in BEER

Interesting - how would you define Beer vs American beer?


PS it is all good isn't it?

I think someone is trolling for a Good Beer vs. NASCAR Beer discussion/fight.

I think we've done that to death.

5) All archival questions must be submitted to me, since I own the archives.

Aren't they just opposites?

Like flammable and inflammable (I'll let the NASCAR fans sort that one out--but then again isn't their slogan "what goes around, comes around'.

Could I add <ahem>

6. Regular participation in Beer Thread discussions is optional.

?

Maybe "sometimes optional"?

LT - you wrote me an email a while back that I'm afraid got lost in the fray that was/is my life. I never answered it, and I apologize. However, if it's any consolation I have been successfully telling your knock-knock joke to dozens of people - and giving you due credit.

6a) The definition of "regular" is up to the individual ... your results may vary.

Just out lurking and couldn't resist jumping in....I have a friend who, for years, thought beer came in three packs.....because every night her Dad would pick up a 6-pack after work, and by the time he commuted home, he'd walk in the door carrying a 3-pack on the plastic 6-pack holder.

If it was MY dad, that would have been a zero-pack.
