Hey, RobA, where in the Mountain State are you? Don't worry - it's a school night for the kids and I have a full schedule tomorrow so I'm not going to try to come steal your beer!

Yeesh! Spending my first 22 years in Wisconsin -- a state where 18 year-olds could legally walk into a bar,and anyone who could drive or get driven to a bar, could walk in and get served -- Leinenkugel's was not the beer of choice -- even as under-aged drinkers.

We had Northern, Fitger's, Brunig's, Blatz, and a few other local brews that went national, like Hamms, Schlitz, and Pabst.

Leinenkugel's had a two-word nick-name I can't possibly write here without being moderated. It was based on the picture in the center of the old label -- half vulgar racial slur, and half just-plain nasty vulgar. Totally nasty.

I've not had a Leinies in years. But, it wasn't a pleasant beer.

For it to have survived all the other better breweries -- somebody must like it. But, then there are a lot of really nasty Pennsylvania beers that survived, and I like a lot of them.

Burping and Gurgling,
Ken

P.S. If anyone wants to send me a case, or two, of beer from your local area, I'll be glad to evaluate it.

Ken, Illinois was just like Wisconsin regarding drinking age. I hit it just right. When they changed the regs to 21, I was good to go.

You forgot one of the Wisconsin staples - Point Beer!

Leinenkugel is not a microbrew though.

We can send as much to you as you need, Guv.

Ken, I place no credibility in the opinion of anyone who eats things that can't even be pronounced and I suspect are temporarily buried to ripen.

I just found out that there are a couple of local Leinie distributors around here. I'll be checking with them.

BTW, I think Lone Star Beer, the State beer of Texas, is terrible tasting stuff. Like the old time Jax, it tastes worse going down that it does coming up.


It's not about the fish. It's about the pond. Take care of the pond and the fish will be fine. PB subscriber since before it was in color.

Egad! I got so carried away by Dave's praise of Leinenkugels', I forgot to report . . .

In the last 50 years, I've spent immeasurable hours in waders, kayaks, canoes, small boats, big boats, and on ships. To me, the quest for a fish dinner just isn't worth the risks involved with alcohol induced fishing -- and I love beer!

I'm a long ways from being a teetotaler. From unfortunate experience, I'd have to say that risk shouldn't trump death.

For me, alcohol doesn't start until the beer battering for the catch-of-the-day is ready for cooking. At least in my mind, alcohol doesn't start until we are off the water and the fish are cleaned -- unless we are well over the age of consent -- over 80, over 90, over 100.

Don't call me mature,
Ken

Any of you guys like Rolling Rock, my dad use to love that beer but other relatives thought it tasted like pee. If we all had the same taste I guess it would be pretty boring, that's what I tell my wife when I eat Jello with can milk. sick

When are you heading back? I won't be home from work until late (tomorrow) Friday night, and I have to pick up one of my grand daughters mid-Saturday morning in Winchester.

But, if Saturday afternoon, or Sunday afternoon are available -- maybe we could have a fish fry. You bring the fish, or just goodwill, and we'll provide all the rest. I'm just off US 50, about 2 miles from Capon Bridge, and about 20 minutes from Moorefield/Petersburg.

Regards,
Ken

I was closer to Michigan when it was 18 in Michigan. I didn't go to drink though. I went to meet girls. blush

Fantastic! A buddy and I are thinking about a late September canoe-camping float trip for a couple of days over on that section of the river, probably through the Trough area. I may have to get in touch with you for some thoughts on that sort of trip since you've been fishing there for so long. I'm a couple of hours away and don't know the area as well as some closer to home, but there's always water there. Have a great time!

DD, if you like a good amber, and want to try a made in Texas one, get one from your King of Beers. Now, I cant take Bud, but Zeigenbock, made by Bud plant here is nice. Try it. Hard to find, though, unless you go to a Specs or similar. Abita Springs, from LA, is also good.

I love Rolling Rock. How did they know what pee tastes like?

And to think all this time I've been wondering where they sent the urine samples for testing.

Rolling Rock used to be brewed about 10 miles from where I live.

I can't stand it, at all, and pee is a good word to describe what I think it tastes like. No offense to those who like it though.

No offense to those who like what? Pee? Or Rolling Rock? grin

Thanks! That's kind of you and it would have been nice to meet a fellow pondmeister. Unfortunately, I'm leaving right after we get off the river tomorrow late in the afternoon. I've got a 4-1/2 hour drive back to PA.

In all the years I've been coming here I've never fished the Trough. I hear it's beautiful. Pray for rain if you'll be fishing the river any time soon - it is really low. We spent a lot of time on this trip dragging our boats through skinny water. I'd be glad to offer any advice but keep in mind that the number of years I've been fishing in the area does not necessarily translate into a wealth of knowledge!

When I was in high school about 150 years ago Rolling Rock was all we could afford. Then, about 5 years ago I was in London on a business trip. I was taken to a trendy new bar (I would have preffered a pub) and guess what they served? Only 2 American beers - Rolling Rock and Bud! Surely they could have chosen something better to represent the USA!

I spent many a Friday night at the Dixie Chicken in College Station, killing pitchers of Ziegen with my friends and playing dominoes.


Pearl is probably my favorite swill beer, although it's only available in Texas and Oklahoma I believe.
