Re: How do we stack up?

Perhaps if you'd laid off the beer during your infant years (6 decades of drinking?!) your brain would be less addled and you'd recognize Boddys for the swill it is

Re: How do we stack up?

Swill?? Surely you jest?

Here is the story. In 1997, I was doing some consulting work in San Diego. A fellow I was working with (a Brit)
said "Do you like beer?" I said, "well sometimes I enjoy one." He says, "Come with me after work and I'll
introduce you to the best beer (ale) you ever had".
I was skeptical, but after work I drove what seemed
like forever to this English pub type bar where I sampled
Boddingtons for the first time. On the way I was
thinking. "this is a long better be good!"
Exceeded all of my expectations and I am a very fussy guy. Never had better before or since, and I've sampled
a lot, believe me. Just goes to show there is no
accounting for taste.

John - Stop calling him Shirley.

Had to do it. Sorry. Apologies all around. My bad.
Be fearful when others are greedy, and greedy when others are fearful. Just another form of "buy low, sell high" for those who have trouble with things. This rule is not universal. Do not buy a 1973 Pinto because everyone else is afraid of it.

Hello Chuck-Lyn! I've tried Shiner Bock. Not even
close IMHO.
