sorry ,im gonna have to go across the border here and say kokanee ,good stuff eh?? :THUMBSUP
There's a definite seasonal component to this. Hot summer days call for a light beer, such as mirror pond :YUM , or bud if I'm pinching pennies. Cold autumn and winter days scream for two of my favorite beers, Jubelale :YUM (Deschutes) and Wassail :YUM (Full sail). And a beer I love to drink anytime....Anderson Valley IPA. Good 'n hoppy! :THUMBSUP
While I HAVE waxed a bimmer while sipping my micro brew, I also pack a few bottles (that's right, bottles) in to the alpine lakes. Nothing like humping in a tube 9 miles up some mountain and enjoying good micro. Has created a few beer moments, but I won't go into any more of those.
FYI: I always pack the empty bottles back out, as well as plenty of cans that others often leave behind.
I am a hick at heart! I just happen to like Mac & Jacks after fishing but during; the silver bullet! You can take the boy out of CWU; but can't take the CWU out of the boy!
Flip Down Fly Boy! :BIGSMILE
I would have to go with coors light, but Oly stubbies do fit quite well on the ole' southfork=)
PS...On those cold mornings though there is nothing like a quick shot of Rumplemintz to sooth the throat=)
Mac and Jacks, miror pond, fat tire or a steelhead beer (after landing a steelie). BTW, I can't find it anymore, do you know where I can get a pack of steelhead beer???
excellent topic :THUMBSUP
Regardless of the fact I may be considered yuppie-ish, there is no ale finer than Fort Collins finest, Fat Tire.
I like Warsteiner.
Here's a quick test to see if you are drinking a real beer or not.
Pour your beer into a glass and hold it up to the light. If you can see through it - it ain't real beer.
Lovely day for a Guinness.
For in the field beer.....Sierra Nevada Pale Ale. On tap beer- Mac and Jacks, Wyndemere Hef, Mirror pond, Black Butte, Moose Drool, and Rosyln Brookside Amber.
Just say no to old lady beer....aka LIGHT beer... My brother says I'm a spoiled beer nazi for never having to experience cheap beer...I just say I'm privilaged to know and appreciate the difference. :TONGUE
But, if someone else is buying...I don't complain much.
Everytime I find a tossed can of beer littering the fishing sites it is a Coors Light. Does this say something about the Silver Bullet drinkers?? Put my vote down for a tasty Heineken. Skunky, light and easy to throw down. mmmmmmmm - beer.
What do I know---I'm just an old man
Well since I don't drink anything on the river,if I did I would be spending all of my prime time in the woods peeing because everything that I drink seems to go right thru me,but if I did it would have to be Diet Coke.
The ol' Diet Coke. Mebbe I should start drinkin' some DC and loosin' some weight. :LOVEIT
My first two chices don't seem to be available in WA: Grain Belt Premium and Leinenkugel's.
So here's another vote for Kokanee! (or even better, Kokanee Gold) :THUMBSUP
I'd have to 2nd the Guinny. After the first frost, that's about all I'll drink!! Although....Moose Drool from Big Sky Brewing is a fine brown ale.
I enjoy ice cold non alcoholic beverages personally. Guinness brews a really nice one called Kaliber and some of my other favorites are: Callister, Haake Beck and even St. Paulina Girl has a decent non-alcoholic. And let's not forget O'douls Amber. Yep. O'Doul's is short for "O'Doyal Rules" hahah Made that one up myself.
There's nothing better, I repeat: nothing better, than a bottle of Dry Fly ESB after a good day of fishing. You can brew this delectible ale at Ted Farmer's Heads Up Brewery in Silverdale, WA. He may even have some on tap for your pleasure. :BIGSMILE
I vote for Grolsch, but on occasion, when pursing the elusive fish on our local waters, I take the BOB LAWLESS approach:
Vest pocket #1 - tall and narrow, to fit the 1985 bottle of superb white wine, crafted in in a small, and heretofore unknown, pocket vineyard in California. The grapes obtain their nurishment from a creek running through the vineyard. The creek contains a band of 12-16" German Browns, who are quite partial to a #18 Royal Wolf drifted just so. The wine is known for it's fruity-oakey-sweetly fishy-bratwurst flavor in the mid 1980's batches.
Vest pocket #1 attachments: When fishing with reds, I have a velcro anti-tip attachment that allows me to bend over at the waist and unhook fish with out spilling any of the wine while it is breathing for the prescribed time.
Additional pockets = Aged cheese pocket, padded pocket for European crystal wine glasses, cork screw pocket, red and white checkered table cloth pocket.
Definitely have to go with an Oregon Beer, like Mirror Pond or Black Butte.
Heinekin. nough said.
