Out of the Blue

Happy International Beer day! I put away a fair bit of oat soda in my younger days, but it's been a long time since it was my beverage of choice. I do still enjoy a cold one on a hot day, though. But I don't have what would be considered good taste in beer, as I am not really big on the hoppiness favored by connoisseurs. My tastes run to old man beer, basic classic American lager. But I can't even qualify as a proper hipster, as I can't stand PBR for its decided lack of a clean finish. My beer of choice is Schaefer, which remains delightfully crisp and bitter despite changing hands and reformulations. That makes it a good thing that this is not my passion, because it is one of the hardest beers to actually find on the shelves.

I've always loved their slogan:

"Shaefer, is the, one beer to have, WHEN YOU'RE HAVING MORE THAN ONE!"

I've always interpreted that as: "If you're only going to drink ONE beer, then have a GOOD beer. If you're going to drink all night and get sloshed, might as well save your money and just drink Schaefers."

My taste leans towards craft IPAs and Brown Ales nowadays, but if I was going to have an old skool watered down American beer, I'll take rolling Rock over Schaefers any day.
Though slogans often don't really reflect the realities of a product, I think that one actually connects directly to my affection for it, even after a couple of likely reformulations. That clean finish I praised means as you drink them you don't start to get a gack buildup in your mouth, which is what I was complaining about with PBR.

Schaefer is the one beer to have,
when you're having more than one.

Yeah beer tastes like piss... sign me up for fruity vodka cocktails instead.

Y'all just haven't had a good beer. There are more types of beer than soda, I'm sure you could find one you like Cheers

I've always wanted to try mead, but I've never seen it for sale in stores. I've heard it's easy to make, but I'm not going to drop $$$ on brewing kit until I try it first.

We do water Kefir. The children do it all themselves, and I imbibe mostly when I'm having digestive issues. Home grown bacteria will set you straight.

I do not drink beer at all as I do not like the taste, generally. What I do like, however, is mead. To the point I have a gallon carboy in a bedroom closet fermenting away for another three weeks. Mead is stupidly easy to brew, forgiving, and you can get started doing it for under a hundred bucks. After that, all you need is 2.5 pounds of honey, water, the yeast of your choice, maybe a little pectic enzyme to clear up your mead and you're back to brewing.

Edit to add:

An active charcoal filtration system can make rain water safe to drink as it is pretty good at stripping out not just PFAs but lead, chlorine, and other unwanted chemicals. A cartridge system works best in terms of ease of maintenance. For Mrs. Burrito, I homebrewed a filter of a fairly deep active charcoal bed topped with ZeoBrite and she tested the Hell out of tap water, rain water, and even water from the Colorado river. All of it came out potable.

I rarely drink alcohol at home. But during the pandemic I went ahead to bought some home. Killian's. My default these days when I'm out and they have nothing interesting is a Fat Tire.
