No, I'm not talking about Gatorade or anything like that.

What alcoholic drinks do you drink, if any, for the big games?

If I decide to drink, my early game drink (especially for those 11am college games) is the Bloody Mary. I love V8, tomato juice and anything with a spicey kick so this is a natural pick.

As far as later games beer is the obvious choice. I don't like to drink that much so a couple of beers is just fine by me. If that's the case then I'll stay away from light beer. I enjoy Budweiser.

Beer until I can't stomach it any more then pretty much anything, if I can't find something which really takes my fancy, I'll take a few large Vodka & Red Bulls or aa few large, neat JD's.

I enjoy beer with the game, I do tend to drink proper beer Very Happy but come football season I get in a few bottles of Coors and some peanuts.

Unless the Patriots are playing I usually miss the first half the the early games as we tend to have Sunday dinner around about kickoff (I love sky + (tivo)) so I guess my pre-match drink is a glass of wine if that isn't too strange Surprised

On those occasions that I choose to drink during games, I will drink something along the lines of Bass, or Kirin Ichiban (Japanese beer). Much like my love of big words, I like imported beer. It costs more, but it tastes better, and it's also a lot stronger, so I generally have to drink less to achieve the desired result.

Sometimes, I'll drink Mike's, the hard lemonade, or the lime.

But usually, I just have soda. I'm generally not much for alcohol before 5. It has to be a special occasion. Or mimosas.

I was in the Albuquerque airport at 10am on Saturday. There were two old ladies at the table next to us. One was eating a pancake breakfast with a glass of orange juice. The other was having some tacos and a big ass margarita.

I love airports. It's 5 o'clock everywhere.

Unfortunately popular social drinks turn my stomach. All I can drink without hurling is hard liquors, and it makes me look like an alcoholic. Captains on the rocks for all occasions!

Kirin Ichiban is good, I'm also a fan of Sapporo. It's a standard whenever I visit a Japanese steakhouse.

Imported beers are a favorite of mine, including Samuel Smith, Kwak, and Harp.

My favorite beer is Sierra Nevada...always makes me think of football cos I usually buy it in the winter--especially their Bigfoot Brandywine style ale. Great stuff.

I always have a Kirin Ichiban when I go for sushi. It's fabulous sushi beer.

I'm just glad someone else around here knows what Kirin Ichiban is. Most people I know don't really delve into imported beers unless I make them. They like to make with the Miller and Bud Lite. Blech. I'm a beer snob, and I'm perfectly okay with that.

I will drink Harp when I go to a place with no Bass. I will not, however, drink Guiness. Horribly sour stuff. No thank you.

Have you ever had Tsingtao? Chinese; quite good. One might not think of Asia as beer country, but they do pretty well for themselves, believe it or not.

I'm also a fan of both Kirin Ichiban and Sapporo. Especially Sapporo for a good sake bomb.

Absolutely. Most people just think of Irish, German, Belgian, and English beers for imports, but there are some great beers from Asia. I think I had Tsingtao at BD's Mongolian grill, and liked it.

The Polish put out some good brew too.

My favorite import right now is Grolsch, it was on sale for a while for 7.49 at Dominick's (not the big bottles, just the regulars).

I picked up Tsingtao at Party Source on a humble one night. I think I was looking for Kirin (which makes excellent beer metts, by the way) and they were all sold out. I thought the Tsingtao looked interesting, so I picked up a six pack. I was quite pleased with it. It was only $8, a leap of faith I could afford. We like to cook, so if it didn't work out for drinking, it could always become a beer batter or something.

Polish beer? I never would have thought to try it, but I will.

I had this really fabulous Scottish beer at a bar that we went to for a Christmas party. I cannot for the life of me remember the name. It was delicious and thick and dark, and the taste had this smooth kick of chocolate right at the end. That stuff was amazing. Ring any bells by any chance?

the only one that comes to mind is robert the bruce because i think there is a chocolatey after taste, but that's a gimmick beer like monty python's black knight ale...so I'm not sure if that's it.

sounds good though.

No, that's not it. But the joking nature of that name sort of reminds me of Arrogant Bastard Ale. It comes in a rather large bottle and isn't particularly tasty. (Think those "Bitter Beer Face" ads from the '90s.) It pretty much dares you to finish it once you've started. I only had a swig of someone else's. I'd imagine finishing the whole thing would be somewhat akin to giving your taste buds the finger.

Oh well; I suppose I'll simply have to go back to The Pub (no, that's the name of the place) and have it again so I can find out what it is.

Oh no, what a horrible, horrible thing. Very Happy

Rum and coke...but usually only on Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Years....and on days that end with "y".

But mostly just water. I know. Boring.

And V8 is good stuff.

I never expected you to like V8. You were a picky eater as a child if I remember correctly. Almost everyone I know hates V8. I love the stuff.

I do too. I hated it as a kid. But I love it now. They make a spicy variety too. Tasty!

Best sports drink? Great minds... I like to start my sports day with a bloody mary, using some of that spicy V8, a little TJ, a little Grey Goose and other specialties to enhance the flava. This is then followed by numerous beers of European origin. I try to time my consumption so that the inevitable b double e r n a p occurs during one of those boring big ten taffy pulls for which the farmer conference is so famous. I find that a two hour beer nap during a big ten game enables me to miss very little action, yet I'm rested and ready for the real football in the SEC and Pac Ten that comes on later in the day and at night.

Jim Beam, no ice

And yes I come off as an alcoholic at first, but I don't drink that much.

That does sound quite lovely. I thought I was the only person who uses V8 for bloody marys. More flavor than a lame-o tomato juice. I sort of make mine like a very dirty vodka martini: V8, vodka (usually Skyy, because it's cheaper than Grey Goose, but still not bad). Garnish with two big damn green olives and pour a tiny bit of the olive juice into the mix. Queen olives from the bottom of a mix of vodka and V8 are tasty. Very Happy

This sounds probably completely gross but I have this new mix that doesn't use clam juice, but uses crab and lobster in it. Whoever doesn't like bloody mary's just got sicker. pale

Actually, that sounds pretty good. Better than clamato juice.

Definitely not a fan of the clamato.
