    A good ole CL made with Rocky Mountain spring water! Could there be anything more refreshing? Born and raised on the stuff...but don't hold that against me!

    Thank you, TreeFrog! Scott was making fun of me (until
    I impressed him with my taste in scotch)!

    There is a category you left off....HOMEBREW. I normally drink Micros but I am able to make my own that I like just as much.

    I just brewed my first batch and it turned out awesome.

    Homebrew IPA
    9 days fermenting
    4 days in bottles

    $35.00 for fixins
    5 gallon batch
    50+ 12oz bottles

    $0.70 each
    $4.20 per 6 pack (would be $8-$9 if I were to buy it)

    Next batch will cost $25 for 8 six packs.

    Mancard be damned! I have 2 beers I drink witha fruit, corona with lime (need something to cover the after taste up :tounge:) and Shocktop with orange. If you like Blue Moon give shocktop a try, just be forwarned that its an unfiltered beer and therefore should be poured into a glass. The orange acutally brings out other tastes in the beer (oh and yes I can drink any beer withouth fruit).

    I actually tried fat tire this past weekend after finding it at the local food lion. It is a pretty good beer however, i couldn't wait to get back to the familiar crisp of the black and tans. I would say my Fav of all-time would still have to be the sweetwater line

    Could not agree more. I am actually cultivating yeast from the bottom of Sweetwater IPA to use in my own brew.

    you forgot to add in your time and effort labor prices..and how many 70cent brews you went through to make it! haha!

    i just breeze through the liq store..grab a case of CL's for $17 (71cents per ice coldie) and move on! =)

    i get you point though...it is fun making your own! Hobbies are good.

    No real "effort" at all.
    Time....
    Brew day:
    15 minutes prep gathering ingredients, washing brew pot, sanitizing fermenter
    60 minutes boiling the wort(unfermented beer)
    20 minutes cooling the wort and transfering from brewpot to fermenter

    Lots of waiting

    Bottling day (5-10 days later):
    30 minutes washing and sanitizing equipment and bottles.
    30 minutes transferring beer to bottling bucket and filling bottles.

    A little more waiting..For carbonation to build in the bottles (3-7 days.)

    ENJOYING GOOD BEER!!!



    Yes but I don't drink CL. The stuff I drink costs $8-$9 a SIX. If I drank CL it would not be cost effective or produce a product anywhere close to matching the "flavor" of CL.
