Booze and Beer
« on: September 29, 2005, 09:15:58 PM »
I was just curious as to what the beekeeper's choice alcoholic beverages are.  I'm a beer man typically Molson Canadian or any imported lager, but I am also partial to some PA beers such as Pocono, Appalacian, and Yuengling.

Beer for this beekeeper :)

And I like a PA beer also. Stoney's,
from the Jones Brewing Company.

Very familiar with Stoney's.  A case of 16 oz. returnable bottles for $5.  Then I went upscale and switched to Iron City.  Don't so it anymore, though.

Is none a choice?

Cheap beer is good to kill slugs in the garden.

Special occassion dinner with my wife Post Family wine (one of Arkansas' wineries).  

    When the urge stricks and I'm not on meds (LOL FOF) then a single malt or Dickel #8 (I think the other is rot gut nasty tasting).

Everyone said it couldn't be done. But he with a chuckle replied, "I won't be one to say it is so, until I give it a try."  So he buckled right in with a trace of a grin.  If he had a worry he hid it and he started to sing as he tackled that thing that couldn't be done, and he did it.  (unknown)

I thought of a Bumper Sticker (or teeshirt) saying lately while brainstorming for product ideas for Beemaster's Online Store (coming soon) and one idea was "Beekeepers put the Bee in Beer!" Thought it was cute, still do :)

BTW....

I was going to mention and then got side tracked (my middle name) and moved off topic, I like three beers 1) Yingling Lager 2) Molson Ice and 3) Becks Dark.

In the much much HARDER department, I'm a Long Island Iced Tea person "IF" the bartender makes them right. I find the ones that taste BOOZIE are NOT for me - I like a smooth and Summery tasting drink that goes down smooth and doesn't make me feel like I'm TRYING to get wasted by slopping a lot of drinks together.

P.S.  Thanks for the TEE-SHIRT okie-dokie, I have a really cute worker bee riding a motor-cycle chopper (no kidding here either) and the "Bee in Beer logo works very well with this one :lol:

Update: just incase you are all following along, I've got several images had drawn and just need to JPEG them up and size them right with the right fonts. MOST of the Online sites that do shirts, cups, bumper-stickers, etc., have got minimum counts that are totally impractical for my wallet.

So, I'll be going local and try to work up a co-operative deal with the printer, keeping them totally involved with my goals and the needs of the people who wish to purchase any of my unique beekeeper related FUN gear.

Not to forget, I still hope to have a Beemaster Forum Regional Camping Weekend as soon as next year - we had some serious interest in THAT, so I think it might be a fun time and a chance to display a tableful of products that have srpouted from the mildly twisted mind of the Beemaster  :shock:

P.S. again..... I hope Beth is doing okay, haven't heard from her in a while. If anyone has - let me know :)

Beer only for me. Every now and then I really appreciate a pale ale,preferably an India Pale Ale(no particular name brand) because this type of brew has a very strong hoppy,bitter flavor unique among beers.

Have never tasted mead.  Thought it was primarily a drink from the past days of my Norwegian ancestory and basically unavailable anymore unless I want to go to Scandinavia.

Beemaster, is there any way we can get an early look at the images you have or are you going to ceremonily unveil them at a major awards show in L.A.?  :D

you can still make a good mead if you have acess to good honey there are recipes available at any homebrew supply and recently have started seeing a few comercial lables in the wine section of larger better stocked liquor stores,  dont go for the cheap ones you'll be disapointed.

About the Artwork...

I'll dig out my scanner and hookup to the new computer or just take a few photos of the artwork with the digital camera - there are 4 primary designs which work well on teeshirts and 3 of those on cups/mugs.

I'm just getting to my job now and won't be on the computer tonight, hopefully tomorrow I'll get the images done. I've always had a talent for comical artwork and these look pretty good :) The workerbee design is the common theme between the images - one on a motorcycle (chopper actually) two workers on a flower talking, a third in an Army outfit and the forth a 3D looking bee looking upward as if looking right into a camera lens.

I'll get them up as soon as I get a chance, I look forward to opions...

Am I right in thinking you americans call "lager", beer? And that you don't have real beer (i.e. ale) there at all?

Have you lot ever heard of Michael Jackson? No, not that one, the famous beer drinker?

He has a great website Here

Ahh, I've poked about a bit further, apparently this lot  "Brooklyn Brewery's East India Pale Ale, with arousingly fresh hop flavors. " make some of the real stuff. Anyone had any?

My favourite beer is Harveys

Some history below:
200 Years of Harveys in Sussex
The name of Harvey has long been associated with the supply of beers, wines and spirits in Sussex. Records of 1794 recall the delivery of Old Red Port, Sherry and Claret within a twenty mile radius of the medieval town of Lewes. However, it was under the management of John Harvey (1784-1862) that the Bridge Wharf Brewery was established on its present site by the River Ouse, overlooking Cliffe Bridge, Lewes.

In 1880 part of the original Georgian Brewery was rebuilt and this portion, the Tower and Brew House, dominates the scene from Cliffe Bridge. This is a beautiful example of a country brewery in Victorian Gothic Design. Behind it stands the other half of the brewery, the Georgian fermenting room, cellars and Vat House. The fermenting room and cellars structurally have remained unchanged although they now house modern plant and equipment. The same applies to the Brew House, but the Vat House has now been converted into a modern bottling hall.

In 1984 a second brewing line was completed, doubling the production capacity from 25,000 to 50,000 barrels a year. The building for this new plant has been added in front of the Tower in a similar Gothic style, right down to the arched ironwork window.

Today, Harveys remains an independent, family company with a seventh generation of Harvey's descendants involved in its affairs. Selecting the finest quality Pale and Mild Ale malts, together with the choicest Kent and Sussex hops, brewing from our own fresh spring water, and a yeast which has remained unchanged in the brewery for four decades, has resulted in a range of beers which have delighted the people of Sussex and neighbouring counties for many years.

And I drink it in here, as its on the way home from my hives. I always stop for a beekeepers half (i.e. half a pint), on my way home.

.....The greatest changes occur in their country without their cooperation. They are not even aware of precisely what has taken place. They suspect it; they have heard of the event by chance. More than that, they are unconcerned with the fortunes of their village, the safety of their streets, the fate of their church and its vestry. They think that such things have nothing to do with them, that they belong to a powerful stranger called “the government.” They enjoy these goods as tenants, without a sense of ownership, and never give a thought to how they might be improved.....
