Thread: This (not) Bud's for you old_gregg: the official craft beer thread.

  1. #1

    Default This (not) Bud's for you old_gregg: the official craft beer thread.

    I hope this thread will help old_gregg and I finally bury the hatchet.
    The crux of what has traumatized us about CUF/CG is that we thought they were our friends. And their identity as BYU fans turned out to be the most important thing to them. What empty lives! What a damning indictment of the LDS Church!

    He who drinks beer sleeps well. He who sleeps well cannot sin. He who does not sin goes to heaven. The logic is impeccable.

    Damnit, this was supposed to go in the diner. This is why I don't start new threads.

    the title is also a little bit confusing.

    i first thought of the old Pearl Jam song.

    Certainly not recent, but certainly old_gregg's craft beer thread is a good place for this story. The Budweiser ad about craft beer did not go over well.

    It is a poorly executed play on the this Bud's for you slogan. Bud is most certainly not a craft beer.

    i understand the reference but confused as to why you placed "not" before the bud?

    I was concerned that if the (not) was placed after Bud that the interpretation would be that the beer is not for old_gregg. I wanted to convey that the beer is for old_gregg, but that it is a beer that is not a Bud that is for him.

    Understood.

    disagree with your choice but it is my (not) thread.

    I'm a big tent person. I would welcome discussion of craft root beers in this thread.

    Not so fast! DH is certainly going to point Clark to one of the following existing threads.

    The good news is that mild barley drinks are expressly allowed in the Word of Wisdom. You are free to participate.

    I would put this at a lesser priority than you providing us with full details of what ethnic cuisine is a gimmick and which is legitimate, but can you also provide us with details of which sins are okay while still being "guided by the whisperings of the holy ghost" and allow one to "bear the solemn responsibilities of the melchizedek priesthood."

    I've been able to discern that despite being expressly allowed by the Word of Wisdom that mild barley drinks are not okay. However, it appears that pornography is okay given your complaints about the amount of nudity in Game of Thrones this year.

    Thanks in advance.

    God created Adam and Eve in his own image in the Garden. And they were naked. If we want to be more like God, we should all be praying for more nudity - especially in Game of Thrones.

    Well, Joe Public was right. I did start a craft beer thread. However, there has been no discussion of craft beer in the craft beer thread.

    It appears that originally this thread was an effort to bury the hatchet with old_gregg. I am no longer interested in the stated reason for starting this thread.

    Squatters Fifth Element. There is a reason it sells out so fast.

    Sours are fantastic, a nice counter point to the hoppy IPAs. I've got 2 more bottles of the Fifth Element in my fridge. It is sad that is it until it is released again next year.

    I got a growler of craft root beer from some wine shop last year. I guess I was just curious about it. It was pretty good, but it had a bit of a problematic yeasty aftertaste. Blechh.

    You should not drink a sour if you don't like the yeasty aftertaste.
