    Post up your drink recipes, favorite beer, or a seasonal beer you think people should take a look at. Heck post up your favorite bar if you wanna give em a shout out. Feel free to tell bar stories or whatever crazy stuff has happened to you while enjoying a few.

    No drinking and driving out there people, be safe.

    Sam Adams Cream Stout. If you're into stouts you gotta give it a try.

    Parabola Barrel Aged Russian Imperial Stout "
    Firestone brewing Co.

    http://beeradvocate.com/beer/profile/2210/41815
    "Pours jet black with a 1/4 finger head that coats the surface of the beer. Aromas of coffee, vanilla, whiskey and chocolate, a little bit of booze and hops. The taste is just amazing, more bourbon and vanilla, strong roasted coffee and malts and a long finish. Creamy mouthfeel with light carbonation. At 12.5% ABV it isn't overly hot. Overall one of the best stouts I've had."

    If you like heavy, this is IT. If you think guiness is filling, your in for a real treat to this one.

    Right now, I've been having Shiner Bock cravings... but then again, I'm a sucker for a good Marzen / Octoberfest. The Fat Tire "Hoptoberfest" I've been liking, too. Like Benjamin Franklin said... "Beer is proof that God loves us." Amen, Brother Ben!!

    As far as available pretty much anywhere beer is Smithwicks. There is an October fest beer called something like king pumpkin that's awesome, and so is chimay. Now I want to hit the pub...

    Shipyard Pumpkin head is almost the only pumpkin beer I like and it is amazing, Not too spicy or pumpkiny but encompasses the taste of fall perfectly

    Blue Moon Pumpkin Ale... I'll have to try the Shipyard Pumpkin. I love the other Shipyard ales and tried them all except for pumpkin, when I was in Portland, ME.

    Others I like...
    Shiner Bock and any Shiner you can think of.

    Guinness

    Harp


    HB (Hofbräuhaus München) - Helles Hefeweizen is really good as well as the darker beers. I've been to the famous Hofbräuhaus in München (Munich) many times. http://www.hofbraeuhaus.de/en/01/hist_anfang_en.html

    Southern Star ales - It's a locally owned company... look for it in the next few years. The Alch content is high and will kick your butt if you aren't careful. http://www.southernstarbrewery.com/

    Basically, I like any Ale or stout. All lite beers are good for is... well, I can't think of what they are good for, as they all taste like watered down beer.

    Shiner is always a good go-to beer.

    Recent beers I've been drinking that I have been most impressed by are:
    Gread Divide Espresso Oak-aged Yeti Russian Imperial Stout
    Boulevard Tank 7
    Oskar's Old Chub Scotish Ale

    The Pumpkin head is a little too sweet for my tastes but they also make one called Smashed Pumpkin that is awesome!

    Shipyard Pumpkin is pretty dang good, but so is Post Road Pumpkin Ale, brewed by Brooklyn Brewery. Very nice autumn beer.

    BUT...it's November now, so the winter beers are starting to make their return :)D) Sam Adams Winter is out on tap at most bars around here, and the grocery stores are starting to rotate in their winter specials. Mmm, beer beer beer.

    Over the weekend I enjoyed some 1792 Ridgemont Reserve bourbon. I'm not much of a spirits kind of guy, especially the "darker" ones like cognac, whiskey, scotch, etc. but this stuff was GOOD. Really hit the spot quite nicely. It also layered well with the multitude of beers that followed..."liquor before beer, you're in the clear; beer before liquor, never been sicker" as they say ;)

    I enjoyed a couple Sam Adams Latitude 48, some Paper City Brewery Holyoke Dam Ale (local brewery), as well as some other really special and rare beers from my buddy's collection. I forget the names of all but one (the last one we had), Troegs Flying Mouflan. We opened a total of 6 aged/rare/sought-after bottles, all aged at least 2 years. Saturday was a goooood night :D

    LOL I love all the drinking threads.... I've been known to drink amongst other things... been to every bar and club in Denver and Boulder so if you need any recommendations im your man. Lots of good bar stories....

    I will say though in my years of bar hopping and clubbing I think Piano bars are top notch... You always have a good time at a piano bar...

    There's a piano bar in OKC that I've been needing to get up to. I've heard good things about it.

    So at an open bar when you're not trying to get embarrass yourself drunk on front of coworkers, what is a quality mixed drink that I should try?

    Depends on tolerance, and your choice of booze.

    Personally I would go with something simple with vodka.

    The first time I had Tuaca was at Copper Mtn when I was 20... Never did really like the stuff, now its every where and I am still not a fan.

    It's an upscale bowling alley supposedly. I think I might try an old fashioned or something like that.

    Try a Manhattan. Or a Sazerac, if the bartender knows how to make one.
