I think my beer IQ is 2+. Sam Adams Boston Lager most of the time and Sam Adams Winter Lager from November through January when it's available.

The '+' is for when those two are not available.

You're thinking of airboats, like the father and son Homa Indians use (Jay and Jay Paul). Most of the swamp boats in that series are flat bottom as a shallow draft is required to negotiate the back waters they hunt. In Florida, gator hunting is more restricted. No one gets 100's of tags. There is a lottery for available permits, which may limit the hunter to 2 gators per season. There is a road that passes through the Big Cypress National Preserve, part of I-75, called Alligator Alley. Along the main canal, in cooler months, we have counted hundreds of gators, sunning on the bank. They have amply recovered from the brink of extinction, many becoming problems in neighborhoods that border the glades. Too many stupid people that think feeding them is cool, but scream bloody heck when the family dog or cat goes missing.

I reckon I won't be wrasslin' any gators. I can shoot center and I ain't gonna be caught without a gun if I go into gator country.

I like Sam Adams Boston Logger. And I only have 2 or 3 beers a year. I prefer a good wine......

Was that down in Dade county at the resort and casino off of Krome Ave and Tamiami Trail (US 41)? Bolas had mentioned some friends in the Kendall area.

How many have tried more than 5 styles on this list

Beer Styles Great American Beer Festival

If all that you've tried is a light colored American style lager, then you know as much about beer as the wino drinking Mad dog knows about good wine
