This. It took them a few hours to understand that my parent's weren't separated even though one lived in Canada, and the other in Scotland. The phone conversation was hilarious. "No, I still love my husband, we're not divorced, we're only physically separated for the time being"... "So, you and your husband are getting a divorce when he comes back to Scotland?" ... "No, Me and my husband are not getting divorced" ... "So is your husband just on holiday in Canada?"... and so on, and so forth.

Sup, Horsie.

Woke up at 2 AM, couldn't go back to sleep, now I'm drinking a cup of scolding coffee in an attempt to stay awake long enough to reach school. Once there, I'll have access to an unlimited supply of coffee.

In other news, I just had a dream so vivid, I can still remember it. Not often I have dreams I can remember, but this one. I was on of those vertical roller coaster things, where you get hoisted up high in the air and then dropped. It felt exactly like I was there, I could feel the G-forces pushing me into the seat, squishing my body together.

That's when I woke up, because I realized that gravity was working upside down. I was in free fall and my body was being squished into the seat. The realism of the dream coupled with this anomaly was like getting hit in the face with a brick.

Imagine walking outside one day and falling up. That's the kind of ******** it was. Because I genuinely thought it was real, until I woke up.

I don't pay €2 for a beer just to throw it down my throat. If I want to throw beer down my throat I'll buy some Palm.

Who said anything about shotgunning it? You only listed three beers.

I take my time with these beers and I want to remember every little detail about them so I don't tend to drink more than one per day.

Also, Xsarus: What would you serve this beer with.

I should mention that it is an important question but not one that needs to be answered quickly.
I'll probably serve that beer with part of the Christmas dinner I'm apparently hosting. Smiley: grin

Ideas and/or tips for the main course or the entree are welcome as well. the dessert has already been decided and will consist of a good sweet or oatmeal stout and chocolate. Smiley: grin

Reviews say it's a fairly sweet and fruity beer.

Edit: the pine part has me wondering what the **** to go with though. And either an entree or the main course is good.

Meat.

Meat goes well with beer.

Yeah, the main course will include some sort of meat, but not all beers go that well with meat and beer can go with so much more than just meat.

While yes, beer can go with more than just meat, I really can't think of a single beer that didn't go with a nice juicy steak.

I wouldn't really pair something like Boon Kriek with a steak, it's just too fruity to be a good match.
Edit: I probably wouldn't pair a steak with a sweat or oatmeal stout either but those are really dessert beers to me.

Steaks are also really expensive. If you are paying 2 euro per beer already, then your budget isn't massive. Plus, depending on how many people will be served, actually making the steaks could be really annoying.

Probably just 4 people and we'll likely split the costs as none of us have a particularly large budget so we can afford some luxury (aside from the very fancy beers).

Golden or blonde ale, American wheat ale, lightly hopped lagers. Since these beers lack both maltiness and hoppiness, they work best as thirst-quenchers. Try them with super-hot food, such as blackened redfish. Once your tongue has been assaulted with hot spices, it will no longer be able to appreciate an intricately flavored beer, anyway.

Weissbier, dunkelweiss. You want to be able to enjoy the flavors of the yeast, so stick with delicate foods, such as a delicate soup or pasta or light cheeses. These beers also work well with lightly flavored vegetarian dishes, such as grilled vegetables, or light chicken dishes.

Amber ale. A good all-around beer for any food that isn't sweet -- something sweet will detract from the maltiness in the beer. It complements sandwiches, hearty soups and pizzas. Also a good thirst-quencher for barbecue or Mexican food.

Bitter, pale ale, India pale ale, German/Bohemian pilsners. While hops can kill your tastebuds when paired with many foods, they do make for some particularly good matches -- fried seafood, for example, because hoppiness cuts through grease, or anything with vinegar as a main ingredient. They also complement smoked, boiled, steamed or broiled seafood. And they can enhance the spiciness of highly spiced cuisine. The fruitier pale ales also will complement lamb, beef and game, or try them with liver paté.

English or American brown ale. Hamburgers and sausages are hearty enough for either kind of ale. The English brown may match nicely with smoked fish, while game dishes can stand up to the hoppiness of the American brown.

Porter, dry or oatmeal stout. Think hearty foods -- meat dishes with gravy, barbecue, shepherd's pie, stew. Oysters are also ideal. Both these beers and the brown ales will stand up to stronger cheeses such as sharp cheddar and blue.

Cream or sweet stout, imperial stout. These are made for chocolate, and imperial stout pairs especially well with dark chocolate. Also try chocolate-and-fruit desserts, such as stout cheesecake with raspberry sauce, or something with caramel or pecans.

Vienna lager/Oktoberfest/Mäarzen, dark lager, bock. Like amber ale, these are good all-around food beers, and they're not as filling as ales. The lagers will cut some of the heaviness in sauce-based meat dishes - chicken paprikash, goulash or pork rouladen, for example - and will stand up to their strong flavors. The perfect beers to serve with pretzels and mustard. Sweeter bocks, such as doppelbocks, can complement heartier, spicier desserts, such as pumpkin pie or spice cake.

Fruit beers, lambics. Sweeter fruit beers and fruit lambics can be paired with light fruit desserts, such as souffles or chiffon cake, but sour ones will probably overwhelm fruit flavors. Some people like to drink lambics with dark chocolate. Entrees that are prepared with fruit - i.e., raspberry-glazed duck breast - can pair nicely with fruit beers. Consider enjoying these alone at the end of the meal.

Old ale, barley wine. Most foods don't stand up to these stronger beers, and you'll probably lose the maltiness in the beer as well. Try a really strong cheese or a piece of super-dark chocolate, or serve them alone or with a cigar.

A few more guidelines:

Don't always match like with like. As you can see from the suggestions above, lighter beers tend to go well with lighter foods, heavier beers with heavier foods, but that's not a hard-and-fast rule. And if you're cooking with beer, you don't have to serve the same beer you cooked with alongside the dish. Often, you'll want to serve a beer that has the opposite characteristics of the one you cooked with. For example, chef Skversky finds the yeasty hefeweiss that he uses in his potato soup too "palate-coating" to accompany the soup, and he prefers to serve it with a light, golden ale.

Think ethnic. Try German bratwurst with grilled onions and horseradish with a German dark lager, English stout with steak-and-kidney pie, English brown ales or bitters with mild sausage, or a hoppy American pale ale or pilsner with raw or steamed New England clams.

BeerAdvocate also has some tips for each style of beer. The problem with the pine ale is that the gruit/herbed ale kind of beer is so diverse that there's no default pairing for it.
