    I've become a fan of wheat beers. The wife picked me up a six pack of Shock Top the other day that was actually pretty good. It's an unfiltered Belgian style beer with a hint of citrus.

    I had a Shiner Blonde at a friend's place this weekend. I love the Shiner Bock, so I figured I'd give it a try. It wasn't bad at all.

    Now I'm getting thirsty.
    Any free beer is a good beer, well not really!

    Funny how one person taste for something is so different than someone else. Really I liked the stuff!

    They are all white.

    The Grigio is lighter than Chardonnay.

    I know it's winter and I should be drinking reds, but I hate what they do to my teeth. However, I did read somewhere that red wine, even though it stains your teeth, is actually good for your teeth.

    For a nice cheap wine I like Bogel Chardonnay (white) or Marlot (red). Around $9 a bottle.

    For cheap wine go to Trader Joes and get Charles Shaw (Two Buck Chuck). It is literally $2.99. And it isn't bad.

    What's the deal with wine in a box anyway? I have been meaning to ask someone this for a couple weeks now. For some reason on tv shows, or other things in pop culture I have seen a lot of stuff come up about wine in a box, and jokes concerning it. Could someone please explain to me what is up with the whole wine in a box thing?

    They are polar opposites. The Rhys Pinot Noir is about as close to a French Burgundy as you will get from a California Pinot Noir. Extremely light and loaded with complexity. The Turley Zinfandel is high octane, in your face, punch you in the mouth huge wine.

    I love Kris Pinot Grigio French

    Also my favorite anytime is Cakebread Chardonnay Yummy
    Agree with you on the Cakebread Chard. Buttery toast! I am not a huge Chard fan, but I like Rombauer as well for a similar price point. If I have to drink white I am going German Auslese Riesling or super sweet French Sauternes.

On the palate Samuel Adams® Winter Lager is rich and full bodied, robust and warming, a wonderful way to enjoy the cold evenings that come with this season.

    Brought home a six pack and it was gone before the night was over. Couldn't believe I had drank all six of them, but them "The Boss" admitted that she drank two of them and she liked it so much, she drove to the store to buy another six pack the next day.

    Now I don't know if it would be a beer I would drink all the time, but it really hit the spot the other weekend.
    The Sam Adam's Winter Lager is the best one they have imo. Very smooth, slightly sweet and all so delicious. I also have a fondness for their Summer Ale. The first time I tried the Summer Ale oddly enough was in Boston a few years ago. The locals there just refer to is a "Summa". After I had finished my first Summa, the bartender asked me, "Yo bud, ya want anotha Summa". Geez I love that town.

    Yep. My sister bought me the variety pack. I liked the Sam Adams Light and Summer Ale. The regular Sam Adams is ok. There was some fruity one that I didn't care for, and the Winter Ale just wasn't for me. I used to be strictly Bud/Bud Light, but I've been expanding my tastes the last couple years. I've learned that dark beers and green bottles aren't for me.

    I like to make my own black and tans, so currently I am drinking a black and tan consisting of a French beer "Kronenbourg" (the tan), and a Harpoon Chocolate Stout (the black). Lovely I must say.

    Not a fan of the sweeter wines. Finding out that among my friends , I stand alone on that issue.

    You sound like a fan of "The Pub". They have several great custom black and tans.
