A good IPA kind of beer is great though any beer with friends will do. I enjoy wine and the occasional bourbon or scotch, but beer is my go to. On a Saturday, working out in the yard and then grilling some food, 6+ beers over a 5-6 hour period is not at all uncommon. <BR> <BR> A typical M-Su beer/drink routine goes like this: nothing M/Tu, one Wed, two-three Thurs, 4 Fri after work, 6+ drinks over the course of the day Sat/Sun. <BR> <BR> I joined SP on Sunday after...
