But, don't follow them. They'll lead you down that path.
That's why I didn't follow last weekend. Besides, I bought a zuk.

Have you seen this up there? It is also brewed by Yuengling and I like it a lot. I buy it when in PA. I've not been buying much Yuengling here at the beach lately. 50/50 shot of it being skunky down here.

Yep you sure did, and I thank you for it!

Even gave Big Blue a bit of a bath to finally get off some of the salt/grime..New SS front brake lines and pads coming this week too, so I'll be ready to roll!

Oh yeah, the good Lord Chesterfield is good but I only see it in the holiday mixed boxes that they put out. Yuengling is not quite enough. It's more than Bud or Miller but I want alittle more hops and body. I need to try that Bock that Mike is talking about. I guess that when it really gets down to it, I like a medium sweet, full bodied yeasty English or Dutch ale. Yuengling starts out ok then goes a little watery on me. I buy it when it's hot out. It's good in the summertime with clamato.

The word I came up with is Yuengling-esque to set the proper expectation

I'll try any beer once, twice if I like it I lean torwards the Malt but after spending a bunch of time in the PNW I can appreciate a hoppy brew....they got some winners out there...Deschutes was a favorite...brewers like Hops out west for sure...my pick for an IPA, Inversion:

Well yes sir, nothing quite as nice as a good beer. Part of the good life for sure.

Good news and bad news. The Kroger on Jeff Davis near Rt 10 carries several varieties of Yuengling. Lord Chesterfield Ale, Porter, Black and Tan, Lager and Light. Alas, no BOCK though. I was really wanting to try that.

Pretty sure I rode this. If it's on the IT/FR border, that is.

The camera is deceiving. It's not as narrow as it seems. I did it on an old XT600.

OK, I looked it up. I was in the area, so that's probably it. Man, that was almost 20 years ago!
