Nice to see the boys and some quality cheek action – thanks Consul! I find myself drinking ESB, Old Speckled Hen, Shiner Bock, and some cider on a more regular basis these days. For years I have primarily drunk that Texas favorite Shiner Bock and only pulled out some British beers on special occasions. But as I’m less than a year away from hitting fifty, I decided that life is way too short to not be drinking quality all the time. There is nothing wrong with Shiner Bock, but it is no ESB for sure. I go to Spec’s for my beer and although they have a big choice I still find myself gravitating to my old favorites. Maybe I should start a guest beer of the week program? If only Kentucky was here to advise me.
