The beer goddess authorized a release of funds for the consumption of bier last night.
Every since my dream, I was...thirsty.

I drank Bitburger last night.
And it was good.




Picked up Ang Lee's Lust, Caution today (the NC-17 Edition). Will expound upon Alexandre Desplat's score once I watch it.

The Beer Goddess is a kind, lovely person for allowing your consumption of the drink!

Yes, she is. There was a price to pay, however - there always is when you bargain with the goddess. Suffice it to say, I paid that price in full!

I've never tried Bitburger Pilsner.

Admittedly, its the "Budweiser" of Germany. But in the states, when you have to have that 'Rhineland' taste (as its not brewed in the Bavarian region) you just gotta reach for it.

Actually, Budvar is the Budweiser of Germany.

Ah, Budvar! That's a Czech beer, actually - and a damn fine brew. Much better than its US namesake, but for Czech brews, I'll take my P.U. Great find, BTW - have you had it? I've only seen it stateside a couple of times.

I've only ever read about it. There was a great article a long time ago that I read where some American beer geeks went on a Euro-trip with a few cases of Abfliegen and a few cases of Budvar to see who was truly the "king" of beers. Very silly and entertaining.
galinda822 at 2008-02-19 20:39 (UTC) (Link)
Maybe next time I'm down visiting I can try it.
I've liked every beer you've introduced me to so far.

It replaced Pilsner Urquell as my pilsner of choice last night if that tells you anything ;)

It speaks volumes!

My two favorite pils are Penn Pilsner from Penn Brewing and of course Victory Prima Pils, both made in our state. I guess freshness counts.

Does Latrobe make a pilsner? I love their Rolling Rock.
time3 at 2008-02-19 22:51 (UTC) (Link)
Not that I'm aware of.

I'll keep an eye out for Penn and Victory Prima. Its hard to find good a pilsner.

You can clear this up for us.

My brother Matt and I have been arguing about what movie it's from. I told him it was from the Tim Allen movie I haven't watched for awhile and he said "No it's not!"

What gave you that idea? My avatar? You have chosen...wisely.
snapper521 at 2008-02-20 19:36 (UTC) (Link)
Because I used to watch the movie every day. :-| I loved the movie. Don't ask me why I loved it so much I had to watch it every day... but yeah. :-P

Another show that was thrown out there was Star Trek, but it don't look right.

Anyway... :-) Muchas gracias para tu ayuda. (Many thanks for your help).

Mom said it was getting close to being WWIII
