I usually buy Deschutes brewed beer, a brewery in Oregon who makes good stuff, but I'm in college, still trying to find part-time work, and the IRS is STILL processing my refund. So for me, Rainier is as good as craft beer when I can't afford craft beer.
4.5 kiltlifters, all on the company's dime. Meeting at work went late and and the boss made right. 15 years ago I would have drunk diet Coke... 20 years ago it would have been a vodka and grapefruit. Why did I briefly go back?!?
Tonight, Saturday, I'll be drinking some Canadian beer, perhaps Carling, watching my Toronto Maple Leafs try to take down the Boston Bruins in game two of the first round playoffs.
What's interesting, is that I served my mission in Boston, but I'm a Leafs fan, Raptors fan, and Jays fan, but I do sometimes root for the New England Patriots, in spite of Brady and the Trump loving owner.
Friday night? Mostly IPAs (I Pee Ale)/ IPL. Had some ciders in there (that must have been where I lost a chunk of [$20s] change). Then a protein shake and a wine (why not?). The vodka and White Russian went to the [great] band. They were grateful. Fine men too. Today it was non-homo milk, with phat, a protein shake, a cold common coffee and a glass of water. Though I don't much feel like home repairs or tinkering tonight, I might have a screwdriver... with my snacks and/ or supper. Edited to add: I think I'll have that now! Noonday Sunday. Beautiful.
Happy Sunday - Sunny day - to all ye who may be getting a late start on your weekend, or like me, forgot or go green, mean and wo-man or machine. Whatever you think or drink, just don't let it stink... and always remember how and when to wink. I'd better get that drink! 1201
I'll come (go) out for coffee today. After the in-and-out crowd quites doing that. After yesterday and last nights storming, it's a gorgeous day! It'll be a soothing sitting. (not chewing or spitting), a warming high and a zooming Zen.

I love reading all of your passions for a good drink. As a purveyor of libations, I often wonder what the hell some of you are thinking. OTOH, I am always amazed at the quality of drinking most of you are attached to.
For instance, someone who focuses on a good Scotch. Or, another who is impressing a friend with a special red wine. Or the DIL who wants to make sure her FIL has a happy heart on his 60th birthday.
I sadly believe that Utah suffers culturally from not allowing the approved non-prohibition laws of our nation to be applied. We have become an anomaly among the other states. It's as if prohibition were somehow, still in effect, if only to discourage the practice. BY made a lot of money off of the (so-called) gentiles by running booze throughout the Territory and the State continues their gutting of the alcohol trade today.
I can only guess that the present situation will change is when the revenue source begins to sour. That might occur with the legalization of marijuana and the ending of opioid availability. Or both. Not within most of our lifetimes here but, it's going to happen. TSCC cannot control information forever. It's going to change our whole culture when the whole system of lies is laid out to the world to see. And if that day never comes, the law of equilibrium will make sure that there is a change of beliefs.
Jose Cuervo Golden Margarita mix, ice, shaker, lime juice, two shots of Cuervo Silver Tequila, salted tumbler. Boom, boom, out go the lights. That's what's happening at Cake and Ms. Cake's hacienda tonight.
My go-to Scotch (when I need one) is Glenfidditch. Our very own Brigantia (who hasn't been around much lately) introduced me to Famous Grouse when I visited her in England years ago.
In general, I can't tolerate much serious drinking, so I like a tasty Margarita made with a light touch. And since I have to limit my sodium intake, I only drink from the one area on the glass. I can't bring myself to say "Hold the salt."
We don't keep alcohol in the house, so I'd say I get an alcoholic beverage once every month or two.
