A viking ship appears on the horizon, a likeness of Loretta Lynn carved into its bow. Rare birds flock together to sing Francoise Hardy as soul hits. A sunset of blips and bleeps fills the air.

Did anyone listen to WZUM am in the 70s?
Avatar Tue. 9/10/13 11:11am Cecile:

glenn - you should try Killebrew, created by Harmon Killebrew so he would have something to drink at picnics and parties when he stopped drinking. Good herb flavor, but smooth like Dad's.

Goose Island make some good soda. Their ginger beer and root beer is deee-licious.

We are trying at every brewpub we go to get them to make sodapopcoke. They have a great vibe, great food truck food, but nothing special for my friends in recovery. Some do, thank goodness.

Cecile - ha! No my dad soldiered on and is still alive to tell the tale. He moved us all out to sunny California in the 70's but is still very much a part of the Steeler Nation. That aside, I think the worst canned beer I ever had was Narragansett beer. That took all the fun out of everything after I drank it.
Avatar Tue. 9/10/13 11:15am glenn:

dad's is a good one. i have to admit, good ole a&w is one of my faves.
Avatar Tue. 9/10/13 11:16am Cecile:

Great name, bad brew apparently.

The Steelers are the Packers of the East Coast. You don't leave Steeler Nation, you get carried out feet first. (My aunt bleeds black and gold)

A&W comes w/ heavy nostalgia here for drive-in & fries...
Avatar Tue. 9/10/13 11:17am Cecile:

a&w fresh is awesome. Remember when you could buy it in cardboard cartons?
Avatar Tue. 9/10/13 11:17am glenn:

there' s a brewery in nova scotia called propeller. they brew both beer and soft drinks, which i think is a bit unusual. are their others?
Avatar Tue. 9/10/13 11:19am Cecile:

I look forward to the Steeler playoff buffets. To say they are overflowing is to do them injustice. And the whole damn town is covered in black and gold streamers.
Avatar Tue. 9/10/13 11:19am Cecile:

There sure are, glenn. There is a brewery in Milwaukee that started with root beer and moved to beer.
Avatar Tue. 9/10/13 11:20am Cecile:

Sprecher started with sodapopcoke.
Avatar Tue. 9/10/13 11:20am ᏠЄႶႶỊѺµЄ:

Being a kid in California, we did the A&W drive-thru thing. I remember the commercials in the 70's where people would hold the can with their thumb and pinky to make it look as if they had a glass mug. I spent lots of time as a kid trying to do that.
Avatar Tue. 9/10/13 11:21am Cecile:

hahahahaha, jenn.
I loved those cold glass mugs. Root beer is the only "brown pop" I like.
Avatar Tue. 9/10/13 11:23am dc pat:

"thumb and pinky" funny, never saw that but now I want to try it.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 9/10/13 11:24am tim from champaign:

I rarely drink pop but i do enjoyed trying ginger beer and root beer once in a while. I also like a Jaritos now and then too.
Avatar Tue. 9/10/13 11:25am Trouble:

went to a swanky soho boite last week and they were serving narragansett!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 9/10/13 11:25am Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

...(digression but) what exactly is this Bitters thing the Brits do - ??
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 9/10/13 11:25am Jeff:

I only found out this year that locals pronounce "Latrobe" with a long "a". Who knew?
Avatar Tue. 9/10/13 11:26am Cecile:

All are delicious - I almost never drink pop because I'd rather save the calories for booze, but a good glass of pop is pretty special.
Avatar Tue. 9/10/13 11:26am glenn:

well, bitter is a beer. bitters is a digestif. which are you referring to?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 9/10/13 11:26am Jeff:

"...from the glass-lined banks of the Latrobe river..."

wait, I think I may have gotten something wrong there.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 9/10/13 11:27am Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

...like the health food store ginger ale that's about (serious) ginger more than sugar - great stuff - some w/ raspberry or cherry...
Avatar Tue. 9/10/13 11:28am northguineahills:

Valerie June, I dig!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 9/10/13 11:29am Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

glenn: That would be relevant.
- Yeah neato VJ tune.
Avatar Tue. 9/10/13 11:30am Cecile:

bitters are extracts of plants dissolved in alcohol that give cocktails some zing.
Avatar Tue. 9/10/13 11:30am Cecile:

bitter with no s is a kind of beer.
  Tue. 9/10/13 11:31am moxie:

bitters is made with gentian root, also a key ingredient in Moxie.

Trouble - were they serving Narragansett ironically? Cause that is the only way that is gonna work.

- Is English Bitter Beer like IPA or Brutal Bitter out of Portland, OR? (I gotta start somewhere...wiki perhaps...)
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 9/10/13 11:32am Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

Si !
Avatar Tue. 9/10/13 11:33am Cecile:

no, it's pretty medium in the hop department, interstingly enough.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 9/10/13 11:33am Jeff:

English Bitter has some bite, but doesn't usually seem to go overboard with the hops to the extent of smelling like a christmass tree.

Don't get me started on the "hops as extreme sport" movement in American beer.
Avatar Tue. 9/10/13 11:34am glenn:

i always found bitter sort of sweet. maybe that's just me.

A martini is great with a drop of orange bitters.
Now you can actually find them, thank you cocktail geeks.
Avatar Tue. 9/10/13 11:36am dc pat:

I got a can of Moxie when I went to Maine. I had it in a cabinet for a year until mrs. dc pat knocked it off the shelf and it exploded all over the kitchen.
Avatar Tue. 9/10/13 11:36am Cecile:

Maja, did you embroider that piece? That has stitches I've only seen in books!
Avatar Tue. 9/10/13 11:37am Cecile:

I had some moxie. It was like Jaeger with no alcohol. No thanks.
Avatar Tue. 9/10/13 11:38am glenn:

oh cecile, you STILL got moxie.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 9/10/13 11:38am Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

Thx Jeff. Tasty maybe w/ fairly low ABV. glenn says sweet...
...Someone gave me a Moxie not too long ago. The rep is they taste nasty - I thot it wasn't so bad w/ the gentian - rooty taste - better than a malted battery-acid Cola far as I'm concerned.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 9/10/13 11:38am Jeff:

...and I vastly prefer Manhattans made with good orange bitters to those made my Dad's way with Angostura (which used to be the only bitters anybody had heard of or could get back in the day).
Avatar Tue. 9/10/13 11:39am Cecile:

hahahahaha, glenn
Avatar Tue. 9/10/13 11:40am Cecile:

Jeff, they are much easier to find now. I'm surprised. And not just orange.
Avatar Tue. 9/10/13 11:40am Cecile:

Rev, I have never developed a taste for Coke unless there is a quart of ice cream in the glass.

I'm scared of energy drinks for some reason. For some reason gulping a handful of trucker speed seems more appealing than chugging an energy drink.

the older I get, the more ice cream I eat. I've been eating that stuff every night lately.

rev, a nurse told me that my elevated caffeine consumption would ensure I never would get Parkinson's.

on the other hand, how would you know?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 9/10/13 11:49am Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

- On the Caff to Cocaine Spectrum, Guarana is in-between somewhere - & they promote these drinks as having less caff than coffee (prob. to kids too!)...I do it *myself* for work in place of coffee sometimes - but I see somebody w/ a can & do think 'speedfreak!' somewhere in the back of my mind...
