Hey PatriotThunder - if we plan it right with a day in between - to heal - and a couple days in a row for travel - we could take the show on the road! Travel from one brewery, distillery, vineyard to another. Write a book, film it and sell the documentary to highest bidder, rinse, spit and repeat. Folks are always looking to make money from life on the road. We may be on to something here. I think we're gonna need a thread with Bloody Mary Recipes before we go.

I too am a craft beer loving diabetic. But I have learned to use it as a carb substitute. Hmmmm let's see, on the one hand a potato, on the other hand a beer ?? Just keep your finger stick tester nearby to see how you're doing. It also helps that I have insulin in case I overdo the carb thing. And then there is exercise, a long walk will earn me a beer. Cheers!!
P.S. On a 6000 mile, 18 state tour out west last fall we visited approx. 20 micro breweries, and I still have all my toes. Bob

There's a brewery on-site at the 2013 Nat'l Rally at Amana Colonies. Guess where I'll be doing MY next round of taste testing.

How is it one careless match can start a forest fire but it takes a whole box to start a campfire?

Diabetics & Beer

Beer may be a carb, but alcohol is not and will lower your glucose, sometimes a lot. If you're taking oral meds for type -2 be very careful. Alcohol may enhance their effect to the point you go hypo.

Hypoglycemia feels enough like a buzz that you might ignore it. Do that and you're putting yourself at serious immediate risk. In addition, every hypo episode does cumulative micro cellular damage to muscle (especially cardiac muscle), nerve tissue, and several important organs that you need to be kind to.

If I know I'm going to be drinking even one beer I skip my meds (glypizide). It's better to be slightly high (pun intended) than low. I've never been a heavy drinker but I do appreciate a good brew now & then.

Newcastle, Fat Tire, Sam Adams. generally I lean toward darker beers but say what you will, there is nothing quite as refreshing on a hot day working in the yard as a watered down tasteless Bud. Or a real Fosters. A craft brew would be way too heavy.

Micro breweries have raised the bar for everyone. And thanks for that. There are at least 6 of them within 10 miles of my home. Some better than others but they're all good. A countrywide microbrew tour would be a very big undertaking. It would take YEARS! And by the time you finished there would be thousands of new breweries so you'd have to start all over!

Ah, I get it. Lifetime job security!

If you get to the Minneapolis/St. Paul area, try Surly; any of their beers.

No offense to anyone with a love for those - they just don't work for me.
Ahh, Tecate. You have just transported me back 40 years ago when I went to Mexico as a young man. It was a good Mexican beer for sure. My kids like Mexico's Corona. I am not to crazy about it. In fact, I don't even care for it. Right now, my beer of choice is an IPA called Harpoon Rye. Truly a full bodied "hoppy beer". In fact, I am imbibing in one right now!We are so fortunate today to have all of these craft beers and micro breweries. When I was growing the beers of choice were Bud, Miller, Heineken, Pabst, Lowenbrau, I could go on and on. I drank them all!
BTW, we manufacture beer bottles where I work. It is what I do for a living.

If you are in Tucson for the winter, visit Borderlands Brewery downtown. They have several rotating varieties, but their Porter is outstanding.

Thank you sir for your service to this country, for without you and your beer-bottle compadres, we would be relegated to drinking beer from cans, like barbarians.

I am now on my 3rd Big Flats lager. Brewed by World Brews, Rochester, N.Y. Brewed for sale only at Walgreens stores, $3.33 a 6 pack here in Texas. With sales Tax $3.50 for a 6 pack. I like it better than Bud or Coors.

In deference to the last gasps of summer, I'm celebrating with a Leinenkugel's Summer Shandy.

This of course after 2 glasses of Captain Morgan's Private Stock Rum.

Me? I'm having a nice Woodford's Reserve bourbon to kick off the Labor day weekend thanks to a recommendation from flagship1.

If you like Woodford Reserve, you must try the Double Oaked Limited Edition. It is even more of what make Woodford delicious.


This is a great thread!

I actually looked for that (again on flagship1's recommendation) at my local liquor store, but they didn't have it. I had to settle for standard W.R., which really is a settlement I can be happy with.
