The Pub / Re: Another book thread
« on: December 12, 2011, 04:27:07 PM »
I recently read "Truth to be Told" by Hatty Swiggs. It's a self-published book by a first-time author that turned out to be remarkably good. If you're at all into music and especially if you're an Elvis fan, I'd highly recommend it.

Pimp My System / Re: My Home-Brewhouse Build

Nice! I'm very interested to see how this turns out. I'm building a house and have included a dedicated room in the basement for brewing. Besides a sink and a floor drain, I don't really know what the hell I'm going to do.

WTF? Just because it's "California's leading cause of smug" doesn't mean it's not a nice car. My brother-in-law has one. It's comfortable, reliable and gets great mileage. Get over yourselves. It's not like it's a Yugo.

Anyway... Pretty amusing mod.

Anybody seen the promo video for this yet? It looks interesting. I was reminded about it by this blog post: http://www.thirstypilgrim.com/2011/12/beer-tv-news-and-orval.html

You can go straight to the video here:

Commercial Beer Reviews / Re: Not Digging This Pumpkin Ale.

When used to chase cheap Irish whiskey, pumpkin beer becomes amazing.

Oh, and the recipe for my father in law is - open the can and dump it into a dish, leaving it in can shape. ;)

It's the ridges that make the presentation perfect :D

It's a thing of beauty!
I grew up thinking cranberries were can shaped, that's the only form I saw them in until I moved out of my parent's house.

Yep, me too. Although my mom would usually slice up a portion of the cylinder for a little extra flair.

Whew! I was ready to post my first insult on this forum.

It's a good, albeit overrated beer. However it has recently become more sour to me. I have a difficult time supporting an organization (unless it's a prison) that welcomes and shelters admitted child molesters. Then again, he confessed, so I guess it's not a problem.

"Ge" was definitely not a typo. It's the slang version of "gij".  It's "southern speak" in both Holland and Belgium. That said, my knowledge base stopped updating in the early 80's. I suspect only the old farts (like me) talk like that now.

Interesting. I don't recall hearing that. It's true, old people talk pretty funny, especially around my 'hood. The men sound like they're imitating Goofy.

Yahoo might like this better:
Zo maneer, spreek je vlaams?

Like Phil said, allez is taken from French and usually used in place of "so" or "like", depending on your age. "Ge" was just a typo. He meant "je".
