That explains it!  Are we talking about this being given to you in place of mother's milk, or perhaps sometime a little later? [Image: laff.gif]

I don't think it actually replaced mother's milk for me, but I been sippin' my Dad's 7&7's for as long as I can remember.  [Image: crazy.gif]

Beer. Harp and Guinness are nice, as well as any of the Pilzners. Another one, which is great, but I don't know if they have near you is a Flying Dog. Excellent brew! Also, try supporting your local microbreweries, they've got some great stuff.
 
On the sweet side, try a Margarita. It's nothing more than jacked up lemonade. Or some sparkling white wine.

Hello:
 
I am still dry and sober. I am still deciding on what exactly to drink and when. Perhaps I shall write all your suggestions on several pieces of paper and put them in a hat of some sort, and whatsoever I draw out of the hat, that I shall drink. As long as I don't take every suggestion from the hat, I should be fine [Image: laff.gif]

The most efficacious remedy for this quandary, in my estimation, would be a visit to the local petrol station which stocks a decent selection of alcoholic beverages. Pick out several which bear names that are recognizeable to you, and/or appeal to you in some way, ideally something mentioned in this thread. Take your selections home and sample them judiciously to see what you like. Personally, I would avoid the beers which are deemed fit for mass consumption, like "Miller lite" and "Budweiser" and the like. Try some beer, of a less-well-known brand, as somebody pointed out above, microbreweries are wonderful for this. Try some wine, and try some "hard liquor." As Catholics, we know that to deliberately "get drunk" is a mortal sin, so, though it's probably obvious, focus on what appeals to you, and not on what has the highest proof (highest alcohol content.)

Hello.
 
I had not thought of this before. I shall indeed look into this and see if any petrol stations exists in the vicinity. Also, I shall look into the microbreweries. Perhaps I can request a tour or something if I have free time.
 
Now that Lent has passed I will feel less guilty in initiating such aesthetic endeavours. Aesthetic is key word, because I am not looking to "alter my consciousness" (I can do that without any substances [Image: smile.gif]) but just something that tastes good.

I think I got this from CatholicViking.
