I guess I'm a snob. I don't drink domestic beers. I think they're inferior. I love Negro Modelo, a dark Mexican beer and Hefeweizen, a German beer that takes a squeeze of lemon. Great stuff.

Our stockpile is quite meagre as husband doesn't drink - not because he has a "problem", he just became a bigtime health nut after he turned 40. Once in awhile he'll have a beer or cocktail with friends or for a celebration, but it's a rarity.

So, our fridge currently (& usually) just contains a few black & tan beers, a bottle of pinot grigio (my favorite summertime white wine, & I like to switch around different brands), a large jug of Gallo Chablis Blanc - used primarily for cooking (is terrific for steaming shellfish), Aquafina water, Diet Coke, & lemon-lime seltzer. That's it.

As far as hard liquor, once in awhile I'll buy a bottle of Bacardi Gold rum if I feel like having a "Diet Coke & Rum" (I'm sure you know that the Diet Coke cancels out all the calories in the rum. . . . ;)), vodka for Bloody Mary's, tequila for Margheritas, or Tanqueray if I feel like a gin & tonic - but except for guests, those are occasional purchases, not the norm, & presently I don't have any of the above in the house.

Oh, I do have some dry vermouth, dry sherry, marsala, & cognac in the cupboard, but have them for cooking, not imbibing.

Mylegsbig and lulu, Canada allows each province to set their own legal drinking age. In most provinces the age is 19 or above. Only in Alberta is it 18 (and Quebec?)and even here there is talk of raising it to 21 as there have been some issues with the younger crowd being a bit too rowdy. (Whyte Avenue in Edmonton during hockey playoffs)

Mylegsbig, the comment about AA was supposed to be humorous in light of the large amount of alcohol in one refrigerator.

As to whether this thread is valid or not, that is up to you to decide. I stated my opinion that I didn't see the point in it and would not have posted again here except I felt there were some things I needed to clear up. My apologies if I offended you.

I agree, domestics are just fizzy water to me.

For another refreshing twist on the Hefeweizen, try with oarange too. Whilst living in Holland, I fell in love with it.

Very true! And even if not alcoholic, most young men would find a 'useful' purpose and down all that stuff in no time. As for me, I would polish off all that beer in one weekend, and feed all the liquor to strange women

as for this guy, maybe he just collects beers and bottles and uses them sparingly. I know a couple guys that hardly even drink, just collect bottles of beers and spirits. However, most of the stuff on that guy's list is pretty bad, and i don't see why anyone would want to collect some of it.

i digress-


I don't understand what the problem is with asking people to compare liquor cabinet contents in a subforum called alcoholic drinks? lol.

Well, at least i didn't until i saw this guy's age.

is 18 legal age to drink in canada?

Well thank you mylegsbig.
I don't drink all that stuff. As I said I mostly drink a few shooters, a few mixed drinks, and the drinks from the list of coolers. The beer is all my dad's. The stuff in the cabinet is what we drink now and then. Alot of the bottles are unopened, or things we save for guests. We can all control our drinking.

The legal drinking age in most of Canada is 19, but in Quebec, and I think Alberta it is 18.

But my parents say if I can drink responsibly they'll let me do it. And I have been, for 4 years. When I'm drunk, I know when I'm finished, and I stop.

Hefeweizen is not a German beer. It's brewed right here by Budweiser. I taste tested it at Sea World when it was first launched. I like it, but it's not a true German beer.

Actually, Hefeweisen is style of beer. It has it's roots in Bavarian wheat beers, but any brewer can make one and call it hefeweisen, just like pilsner, pale ale, or stout. (A rough description of the etomology of the name... Mit-hefe, or with sediment, Weisbier - wheat beer. Hefeweizen being wheat beer with sediment).

The style is defined as being a wheat beer that features flavor notes that can include clove, banana, even bubblegum.

Oh, we were talking about brands so I thought she meant the stuff that is branded Hefeweisen which is a Budweiser product.
