When I first moved to WI my roommate and I would buy Leine's Original in heavy brown returnable bottles. It was good beer, and we could buy it for $12 a case as long as we returned the bottles...

A couple years later they discontinued the returnable bottles due to costs and increase in popularity of recycling. It's still good beer, and it still comes in brown bottles, but they are the regular thickness...

I don't drink beer because I have never gotten used to the taste. And as for wine, unless it is a wine cooler that tastes like a sweet juice I don't care for it either unless I cook with it.

I have a 3/4 bottle of Boone's Farm strawberry something or other in the fridge that has been there since last summer.

I like lemonade, iced tea, and gasp -- cherry koolaid!

Have you had Red and White? Red really didn't taste all that fabulous, to me. White was eh. Nothing tops a blue. And what's this....a Doree? Hmmmmm.

I had a Fat Tire for the first time tonight and let me tell you.....YUM. YUUUUUUUUUUUUM.

Yum.

Been drinking fat tire for about 5 years, very nice well rounded "in stock" beer. Colorado has had some MORE then acceptable fine micros out for a while now, and besides Brooklyn Breweries, might have had more to do with the enlightening of palates then any other micro.....of course, just my opinion.

Green bottles to me typically mean skunky beer.

You'd be surprised. The Tampa plant is the former Stroh's plant and it's monstrous. Reminds me of the Bud brewery in Houston that we used to visit as kids.

Does beer labeling in Canada still indicate alcohol content? If so, what's the % for Keiths?

I've heard there is a perverse theory in the US that revealing alcohol content would encourage drinking of beers with higher percntages of alcohol.
