Update.

by

I apologize for the lack of updated threads lately. I haven’t been able to get to my computer much both at work and at home because I have been really busy with my work.

I am also in the process of moving from Rochelle to Dekalb (only 15 minutes apart) but I am mostly moving by myself so it is taking me a while. I should be settled in my new place in the next couple weeks.

I will try to have a complete update on the state of this site by either Monday or Tuesday so stay tuned.

Thanks for being patient and sticking around everybody. You guys are the best.

    Dekalb, eh? Well, that’s just great. You’re gonna have to meet me at Fatty’s for a beer or two. Its the best bar in town! And I may get to put a face to “The FroDog.”

    Frodog, moving sucks, doesn’t it? I just bought a house back in Madison about 8 blocks from where I grew up. The worst is having to go back and clean the old place. But at least now I can start brewing beer in my basement!

    Hi Mac,

    Home brew hmm, not such a bad idea. I’m in a state of flux these days as far as my beer of choice. I’ve been an Old Style drinker since I was 18. At that time, it was brewed in La Crosse using the “fully krauesned” concept. G. Heileman Brewing Co. sold the business to Pabst in the 90’s. They brewed Old Style without krauesning for three years before sub-contracting the brewing process to Miller in 1999. I never noticed a drastic change in taste during this change in the process. Pabst has recently decided to return to the original formula that was used in La Crosse.

    Kris and I went to a surprise birthday party for her brothers 24th a couple of weeks ago. At the bar, I had about four Old Style’s from the Miller process. Then the bartender gave me one of the new beers from the original formula. I couldn’t tell much difference at the time.

    I bought a case of the new stuff last weekend. I got some free time on Sunday night, so I decided to put down a few belts while I was checking the sports threads on the computer. I immediatly noticed that this new beer tasted like shit. I continued to drink about six beers, and went to bed. On Monday morning when I woke up, my head felt like somebody was pounding on my head with a fucking sledge hammer. After 33 years, I think my days of drinking Old Style is over. Do any of you guys have any suggestions for a new brew? I enjoy a good taste that flows smoothly, but not too heavy.

    Keith, thanks for the info! If you’re looking for a “mass-market” type, the new Schlitz is really good; it only comes in bottles. The canned stuff is the crap recipe. That’s what I usually have at home for my “cheap” beer. I still drink Point on tap at the Plaza, and still try a whole bunch of micros at home as well. One that I really like is Central Waters’ Happy Heron Pale Ale, brewed in Amherst (right outside Stevens Point). A friend of mine who I used to tend bar with turned me on to that. Hope all is well!

    MadCityMac,

    Yes. Moving does suck. Especially when nobody you know has a truck because the ones that did traded them in for smaller cars a few years back when the gas prices were at record highs.

    Plus, I had no idea such a small apartment was such a bitch to move in/out of.

SHOW DA FIRE AND PASSION, MY FRENDT!
