That's right. Talk about making someone feel unwelcome. Hey that's my seat, you cant sit there. Now if the place was empty enough that I could easily get another seat then fine I would probably move (but not go back), but if it was busy or I was with a group of friends who were all sitting there then you better believe I would put up a fight, drunk or not and then I would absolutely not be back. I think that is a very rude thing to do to a paying customer. It tells me that they value me less than someone else and they have every right to feel that way about someone that brings them that much business, but then I have every right to choose to spend my money at an establishment that values me as much as the next person.

Then you need to try Singha, a Thai beer. My favorite with extra spicy Pad Thai and pork.

Where at? I remember a place in Charlotte at University Place that had a huge selection of Beer and Wine. I miss that place.

does it bother any of you when you're watching tv or a movie, and the characters grab a beer and you can't make out the bottle? It bothers me. I must know what they're drinking.

The last time I had one, when I was 19 years old, I was at a party in a house on Lake Dallas. I remember eating Floating Island, then drinking a Black Russian. The next thing I knew, I woke up on the deck of a yacht on the lake and the sun was coming up. Thankfully, I still had all my clothes on.

I don't think it was the Blac Russian. I think someone drugged you.

Heineken.. always seems a bit skunkish to me... but that is part of its charm
The reason Heineken has the skunky taste is the Tettanger hop, which is a strong german hop known especially for the qualities. If its in the sun for an extended period of time, that intensifies.

Corona has more of a harsh astringency due to using certain cheap grains, corn and hops with little malt backing, plus if you put it in clear bottles and keep it outside, good lord, we do have a skunking! (to a bad beer anyway!)

So yes, the sun will skunk your beer. But sometimes, a small taste of "skunk" is a type of hop, try a different beer from another brewery if you don't like the hop profile.

Also drinking a 5 day old keg will not skunk, if anything it will get moldy and smell like super sweet vinegar. If you remove the tap and keep the keg cold it will curb that.

Words to the wise...

My 2 cents anyway, CHEERS

I don't drink beer that much, but I do like a Corona with lime or a George Killians Irish Red (bottle or ice-cold draft).
A little kindness goes a long way.

I like beer, it's not my first choice, but I do like it. My first choice is a good single malt Scotch, then wine, then beer. My favorites would be a nice and hearty Guinness Extra Stout if I'm feeling hearty, or a good crisp German beer like Warstiener if in a lighter mood. I don't drink domestics anymore, they just don't appeal, if I'm tight on money I'll pick up Heineken.
