Yeah, until the microbrews came along, it had to be Becks or Dortmunder Union for me -- or Guiness when I could find it. Domestic beers had nothing going for them. Growing up in the Midwest, though, we had a plethora of choices from Detroit and Cincinnati: Stroh, Burger, Hudepohl, Wiedemann. Stroh's (from MoTown) was the least obnoxious of the lot (sorry, Cincy!). When I moved to Washington State, things were even worse: Rainier and Oly ruled the day. Both were awful.
Then came the big mergers and the local breweries either got gobbled up or went out of business. But now, things are great. Even here in little ol' Port Townsend we have a great craft brewery. Their stuff is amazing!

Say goodbye to Ohio's ABV limit for beer.
Ohio Gov. John Kasich today (May 31) signed House Bill 37, which does away with the 12 percent cap. The new law -- designed to help grow the state's booming craft beer industry -- also allows open container districts and sets new labeling requirements for high-alcohol brews.

Which art in barrels,
Hallowed be thy drink.
Thy kegdom come,
I will be drunk,
At home, as in the tavern.
Give us this day, our foamy head,
and forgive us our spillages,
as we forgive those that spill against us,
and lead us not, into incarceration,
But deliver us from hang-overs,
For thine is the beer,
The bitter and the lager,
Forever and ever!

DOH! I doubt if Whit was offended by the Barman's Prayer, but you just crossed the line calling Episcopal priest Whit a Catholic! YOWSAH! Let me step away from my computer a few paces so the lightning bolts can get a clear shot at Mike!
In the Finnish language the word for hangover is "krapula". Which I always think is great, it sounds like feels. Turns out it comes from the Latin "crapula". Which is also in the English/American dictionaries as "crapulous".

I know plenty of Christians that would object to the promotion of alcohol. On the other hand, I know plenty of others that drink like fish.
Personally I think it crossed the line in suggesting that larger was a good idea :)

Better to not wear anything on your body that could lead to disasters. Which is one reason I don't have a wedding ring, despite being married. Wife is in total agreement.
