    Interesting theme Klaus! At least there is an easy subject to find (I say that after two days of frustration with our refrigerator, whose ice maker has stopped making ice - a real PITA, considering I mostly drink water and don't care much for warm or slightly cool water).

    Looking forwarding to contributing and seeing what folks come up with...

    Nice and (very) available topic this week Klaus so as I cannot use my studio here are a few quick and easy pics to get things rolling. Will try for a better selection when I have more time maybe over the weekend, until then these will have to do.

    As it happens, I tend to 'pick up' a sample of the local whatever (preferably either weird or interesting, or both if available) when I travel, here are some fairly recent examples.

    1) Water, water, water:

    2) Cider Brandy & Ginger Liqueur

    3) Cockburn's Fine Tawny, Special Reserve Port & Fine Ruby Port

    I tend to drink water mostly, so 'others' tend to be given these, if they fancy them :)

  3. Pawl, I tend to be the opposite. We'll get along very well. What a great collection of fun drinks.

    Timely reminder as I'm almost out.

    Actually, I've had those bottles three years and they're all still alive.

    Nice shot West! It's amazing all the effort the companies doe in packaging and marketing their products. Some of the boxes and bottles seem more interesting that the contents - to me. :) 
     
  8. Those dark bottles suggest they might have contained something to my liking.

    I was going to say, they look like they are getting low... but if you've had them that long, they must be for special occasions - like odd numbered days, days when there is sun outside, nights when it is dark... :)

  11. As an avid college football fan, I often need a wee dram as a nightcap to calm down after an exciting game on TV.
     

  12. By the way, that's "whisky". I was corrected while in Scotland three years ago.

    I try a "new" micro brew everytime one comes out, only a few get a second look. I believe wineries started the whole art label thingee.

    Locally brewed, one of my favourite dark Ales.
     
  15. I know better, but Safari thought otherwise :mad: 
     
  16. Interesting . . there is a French wine called Parallel 45!
     
  17. Some of the names these "craft" beers have are just astonishing..... Actually, right now I've got a bottle of "Sweet Baby Jesus" ale or beer, whatever it is, in my refrigerator....it's been there a while. A friend gave it to me a long time ago and assured me that I'd love it because apparently it tastes kind of like Reese's Peanut Butter Cups (which I adore), only with a hint of beer/hops and an alcohol kick to it. One of these days I'll get around to actually opening the bottle and trying it, but that name.....just seems a bit sacrilegious to me, and I'm not an especially religious person.

    Anyway, it IS fascinating to wander through the beer section of even a mainstream grocery store these days and see some of the weird names on the beers and ales!

    This is what I drink 90% of the time. I love these beer glasses that I got from a tour of the Red hook brewery years ago, as they are really thick, and keep drinks cold.

    This sampler of micro brews was given to me several weeks ago, but I have not yet gotten around to trying it. Included are: Brooklyn lager, Longboard island lager, Blue Moon Belgian white (wheat ale), Wolf’s Ridge clear sky cream ale, Great Lakes India pale ale, and Jolly Traveler (wheat ale brewed with lemon peel, pomegranate juice, orange and spice).
