Crestor !!

Any drug that requires monitoring liver functions should be out-lawed. Research is indicating that you are more likely to die with low cholesterol than with high cholesterol, so statins in general could be minimized in use. The liver does around 108 functions in the human body. You only get one liver. Until stem cells pass the FDA (YUCK!!!) to replace liver cells, and the research is indeed happening presently, ... the medical community should seriously respect the liver.

Crestor should be an illegal substance, merely due to it's killer side effects.

What's with all the smoke around the town, is there a fire somewhere? Surely they wouldn't have a controlled burn on such a windy day. It's playing havoc with my asthma. Alex, what's the story?

When the sons-in-law makes fun of my Bud Light I just tell 'em next time I'll bring armadillo urine (Lone Star).

I love local beers experienced in their region. It is one of the things I look forward to in traveling.

At home, there is often a Bud Light in my fridge. I blame my dad.

Dang, Beatrice beat me to cold as an answer. Any Anheiser Busch beer, I like lagers.


Rara_Avis 2 years, 1 month ago

Probably Pabst Blue Ribbon, with a spritz of Right Guard in a can. It's a good workin' man's beer. I used to like Heileman's Old Pile but I don't know if they make it anymore. I generally don't waste time with beer. I won't drink anything weaker than cheap malt liquor.

Generally, the darkest brew a bar has on tap. That usually ends up being Guinness or Free State Oatmeal Stout.

A couple of years ago, I had a Belgian beer with a 13% alcohol content that I liked, but I don't remember the name of it. I'd like to find it again. It had a bold flavor.

Don't really care for the fancy beer. As a friend of mine once called it "cheerleader beer", I prefer a Busch Lite or Bud Light. I do remember drinking Schilitz in high school.

draught beer is far superior. Boulevard Pale Ale is my favorite pedestrian draught beer. Avery Mephistopheles if I'm feeling more adventurous. It's been known to cause hallucinations and delusions of grandeur. Much like Free State C3.

Falstaff? How about a Schilitz? Man, that will take a guy back.

These days though I don't drink like I used to, I tend to favor whiskey over beer. Though when I do drink beer, I like Miller Genuine Draft.

Yeah, I know... I'm not a snob.

A pint of Guinness in O'Connor's pub in Galway, on St. Patrick's Day.

Got ya

It looks like there are a lot of tourists in the brewery. It seems to be a trend.

Boulevard Wheat is up there toward the top of the list. St. Arnold Brown Ale is its neighbor.


tange 2 years, 1 month ago

The only evidence I can find, these days, are four empty, dust covered Free State growlers. I haven't even traded their deposits for a cold one. Not doing a 12-step, not even the two-. Just seem to have sidestepped.
