Those beer runs to PA were getting really old...

They aren't bring the Porter, so you aren't getting the goods. The Black and Tan is only half bad. Lager? Eh. Light Lager, haven't tried that one yet. Chesterfield Ale notable lacking in distinction. Looks like they aren't bringing that one either, oh well.

Well as the Lagers go, I kinda of like that one. It has a bit of bite to it.

 

I was weaned on Iron City. So, Yuengling is pretty upscale.

 

The Porter will soon follow.

 

Anyway, its nice to see some variety. When I first came here, it was ALL the typical union beers. If you wanted upscale, it was watered down Heineken. That was about it.

 

Anyhow. I'm drinking Strawberry Mango Margarita and Cuervo Gold out of a bucket right now. Classy...

The Light Lager is not that good.

I was born and raised on Yuengling in Philly, so I'll toast one to you for finally getting some variety in WV! Let's hope the Porter comes sooner, and not later.

 Yeah, cheers! Variety is nice, agree the Lager holds up well to generic American lagers.

For a while, Yuengling wasn't  "exporting" the Porter from Pennsylvania, in order to keep the home state porters supplied. I still don't see it around here much. There is a Spanish market less than ten blocks from here that has it. It's in the same little five store strip where I do my wash. When they started carrying it, I bought a six pack at least once a week for a while and encouraged them to keep it in stock. I don't think it's very popular with their clientele, but they have been carrying for maybe a couple years now. I think the Miller guy brings it. In the summer, I usually prefer a lighter brew.

I seem to be the only Anglo who uses that Laundromat. It's interesting to me, like going to a foreign country.

I love shopping at the Hispanic groceries.   Spicy stuff is actually SPICY and you can get bubble textured juice drinks with carageenan bubbles.     Never could wrap my head around Latino sweets though, seem bland and farinaceous?

I agree with you about Latin sweets; not such a big fan, though dulce de leche can be quite good in small quantities.

Horchata is simply amazing, though! One of my favorite drinks of all time, hands down.

BTW, nice vocab with the farinaceous! Had to bring out the Merriam Webster for that one

It is so good to see something really important being discussed here.  Beer is an older recreational sport than skiing. 

Would love to send you all some of our micro brews from out here but we just don't have enough to share.
