  • An important question of taste and timing.

    The situation.

    You have two very good beers. (Pick whatever your favorite beer is.)

    You have three decent beers. (Again, pick yours.)

    And finally four cheap beers. (you know what to do)

    You want them to last for two days.

    In what order do you drink? Why?

      Day one: Decent. Cheap. Cheap. Excellent.
      Day two: Decent. Cheap. Cheap. Decent. Excellent.
      (presuming my goal involves drinking them ALL over two days)

      It's like a standup routine. You tell your second-best joke first, to get people involved. You save your best stuff for last.

      Day two gets the bonus of having a ramp-up to the good stuff.

      And since I get drunk off of beer faster than any other alcohol, let me tell you that I would be fun to be around for these two days.

        Drink the good ones first; you won't taste 'em after a while anyways.

          I'd drink the cheap ones first, saving the best for last. Besides, it's hard to go from a great beer to a cheap one. They just don't taste the same once you're palette's been spoiled.

              The question is, why only nine beers? That doesnt even give you the opportunity to have an even split between the two days.

              As for me, one top notch beer each day at the beginning, followed by a decent beer and topped off with a mediocre beer. Three is plenty for me to relax. If I wanted to get hammered, I would have simply not bought the $10 worth of beer in the first place and got a cheap bottle of hard liquor instead.

                Well, If you don't start drinking until late in the evening on the first day into the wee hours of the second day you can just get it over with in one session.

                    You gotta remember this is about taste. Because for me, 9 recognizable American beers are just barely getting me buzzed. I have a super high tolerance for some reason and it usually takes a case or two to get me drunk. Especially with the cheap beers. I can drink light beers all night long and never feel a thing. German "Perminator" or "1878" is a whole different story, though. Those beers knock me out pretty quick.

                    I really need to fly back to Germany to re-stock on beer. I usually pick up about 4-5 cases when I go. Guess I'll have to wait until the Spring semester's over. :-(

                      See, this is exactly why this man is in charge. That's tactical drinking right there. Apophis is a master strategist.

                        Re: An important question of taste and timing.

                        This was my decision.

                        cheap, cheap, decent, decent, cheap

                        cheap, decent, best, best, (cheap if last one from next day left over)

                        Here is my reasoning.

                        The first beer of the day is ALWAYS good. And because it is so good I tend to drink it kinda fast. So I drink the first one in about 5 minutes and the second one might as well be one with the same taste because it is going down fast also.

                        I can now drink a couple of the decent ones because the initial buzz has hit and I can now slow down and enjoy it. Final cheap one is optional depending on what is on TV.


                        Second day I again start off with the cheap one(s) again, then the final decent one and finish off with the good ones. I leave the good ones for last because if I don't feel like drinking them all I will have an good "emergency beer" sitting in the fridge.

                        At first I worried about drinking the good ones while to inebriated but 5 beers are not going to be able to do that. If I was to drink all nine maybe.

                        I have a beer budget. I promised my wife I would only drink 18-20 a week. Saturday I over spent just a bit. Another problem is she bought my beer for me and bought bud light (aka the cheap stuff). I love my wife with all my heart but she doesn't know beer.

                          This must be, without a shadow of a doubt, the most important and relevent topic we have ever discussed in the depths of the Sandbox. I'm not joking. These are the little things in life that can make such an impact on our little existance in this vast universe.
