100% dark & bitter. I'm, uh, shocked.

Let me also say (thus proving this test correct), that it's been a LONG TIME since Sam Adams could be considered a microbrew!

(100% dark & bitter, 0% working class, 33% genuine)
box of microbrews

Microbrews, though obscure, are pretty tasty things, and they continually win beer contests. I, personally, have a hard time getting past the hype and the slight air of pretention that surrounds any discussion of "hoppiness," "5-star scales," and the like. But their non-working-classness notwithstanding, Microbrew is one of the best categories on this test: dignified, intelligent, rare.

Personality-wise, you have refined tastes (after all, mircobrews are usually kind of expensive), but you know how to savor what you get. Your personality isn't exactly light and bubbly, but very you're well-liked by your close circle of friends. Your sense of humor is most likely on the dark side, but that's just another way to say sophisticated, right? Just remember to act like a Pabst every once in a while, and you'll be perfect.

heh. netflix them from the start- trust me. The 3 hour "first episode" is a little much- but it's sensibly broken into units (originally a miniseries). The rhythm gets stronger afterward- but you need the extensive character development and the well, logistics, of it. In the meantime (you have until October) I shall not post too many spoilers unless they're under a cut.

Nononononono. You misunderstood (misremembered)! I have been watching it from the beginning, and with rapt attention from soon after the start of the regular show (I was entertained by the mini-series, but wasn't sure it would make it as a real series). I am completely enthralled with it, but I missed the last two (I was in the desert for the first one, and I haven't had enough free-time in the correct headspace to watch them. (Probably this weekend, at the very least they're on Jonah's TiVo, so I'll watch them before I move on Friday)) The last one I saw was the first one with the Gaius / Six juxtaposition. It was DEEE-LICIOUS! Renewed my faith. Sean also keeps beating on me for not watching them, because I think he really wants to talk about the "guest appearance" you alluded to earlier.

Does C get into stuff like this? I ask because I have a feeling you'll go for it, but I feel a little weird possibly dooming her tele hours towards something she might not like...eeeee.

I hope so, but I'm afraid that I've hyped it ("hands down best show on TV...best show I've seen in a VERY LONG TIME, possibly EVAR!" etc.) so much that it won't live up to the expectation. She seems skeptical. She half-watched (background) the mini-series. I think (the other) C was watching it, so I can only assume his running commentary didn't help matters. (ahem, retracting claws now) I have the first 1.5 seasons on DVD, so hopefully I can get her caught up before October. I'm hoping for a reaction similar to mine (well, that's too much, I'm just hoping she enjoys the series more than the mini, and gets hooked.)

Party like it's 1554, man. That brouwerij rocks my socks. Please pardon our enthusiam out here, only in the past month has the stuff been available east of the river. I'll be over it by the time the Oberon release party happens:) Perhaps a care package is in order?

Aha, I didn't remember that it wasn't available out your way. I was distracted by the Dead Guy on tap. (Missing the Beetle, hanging out with you & M, ghods I was such a tool) I was introduced to Fat Tire when my Dad came to visit some years ago (ISTR playing pool with he & Craig, but I don't know why they both would have been in CA) and he was shocked to find his local Boulder microbrew on tap in CA. But dammit, I'd easily trade....well, hrm...yes, I would definitely trade Fat Tire for access to Oberon. But I'd rather have both. *sigh* But care packages. That might not be a bad idea. I can send you ginger/garlic paste & Ptis in exchange for a pile of whatever you can get at Rich's for $1. (Also missing 25¢ knockwurst. :)

I will definitely seek out the 1554. I know Bevmo was carrying other New Belgium brews, but I don't think they had that one, I'll poke around, sounds like I can go to WF?

Oh! I guess this Wednesday night is my last (board) Game Night. (At least with the South Bay crowd) that sounds like a reason to go buy some (and keep it for myself. :)

It may not be in quite the same league, but my new house is 2 blocks down from the Anchor Brewing Brewhouse, and they apparently do tours. OH! That reminds me! Junipero!!!!! I hadn't put that together. I'm living 2 blocks down from where it's made. Nick (yes, dirty hippy) & Salim had martinis at Zibibbo on my birthday made with this heavenly gin that I later learned was made by the brewmaster at Anchor Brewing. It's perfectly balanced! Your care package will definitely include that.

Enough babbling for me. Too much for everyone else, I'm sure.

EDIT: Ok, this is too funny, one of LJ's spellcheck suggestions for your "enthusiam?" "anathema!"

erm, I had been fattired. I think. Now I remember you're just little behind, god- how embarassing!!!

Wait- you *want* Ptis? I thought you hated it? You can get Ptis out there? Just to clarify- *I'm* talking about the weird Polish pop.

I am so confused.
