Ok we all love Mastercraft Boats, we know Doug homebrews his. But I perfer Miller Lite, what is your adult beverage of choice?? So I can have some if you visit! :toast:

07-28-2004, 05:18 PM


07-28-2004, 08:29 PM
well, i cut my teeth on Natural Light...the parents, aunts, uncles and everyone else in the family drinks Coors Light....but for me its always Miller Time :toast:

07-28-2004, 08:48 PM
If I'm drinking cheap beer I'll go w/Bud Light. But, I think I have Guiness, Corona and some Sammy Adams in the beer fridge at the moment.

07-28-2004, 08:49 PM
I miss my Belgium beer, but it's either Miller light or good French Bordeaux like Fronsac or St Emilion!

07-28-2004, 09:15 PM
Most of the time I use Tequila. But occasionally will have a Coors Original

07-28-2004, 09:18 PM

I need a magnifying glass! What are those avatars?

Dude, I'm gonna call you stealth. You never show up on my "whose online list" or my buddy list. I know you're on cause I see you posting.

07-28-2004, 09:23 PM
I was trying to do it quick. Kids are getting ready for bed and its Chinaco time:D

07-28-2004, 09:35 PM
I usually stay with Miller Lite. Helps keep the belly flat. Thnx for the pic Rem! :D

07-28-2004, 09:47 PM
Life is to short to drink cheap beer! Bring me another Sam Adams or Seirra Nevada thank you.

Usually JW Dundee's Honey Brown for me. Cheap darker beer... soo smooth!

07-29-2004, 09:07 AM
In winter, which is short down here, I like alittle Crown Royal in the evenings.

As a general rule, I don't drink lite beer (not that I turn it down either). Usually, if I'm going for quantity over quality, I'm with Lone Star (National Beer of Texas) or Original Coors.

Samuel Smith's Imperial Stout, Oatmeal Stout, or Nutbrown Ale

New Belgium Brewing Co.'s Fat Tire or 1554 Belgian Black


Dos X Amber, Bohemia, Negra Modelo

Shiner Bock

Personally, I like it all

07-29-2004, 12:05 PM
Anchor Steam
Sierra Nevada
Watney's Red Barrel
The Duke's Best Bitters
Keystone Light

07-29-2004, 12:09 PM
Bud Lite. It helps me keep my girlish figure. ;)

07-29-2004, 12:22 PM
I agree with Dan...Keystone Light. But only when they're out of Old Milwaukee Light.

07-29-2004, 12:30 PM
I stick to the light beers when I'm operatin' any of the heavy machinery :headbang:

I stick to the lite beers when somebody puts krazy glue on the can and I'm trying to throw it away. :D

07-29-2004, 02:41 PM
So whats the normal, Doug Beer?

east tx skier
07-29-2004, 03:15 PM
Define normal? If you mean, what I drink on a regular basis, the answer lately is Dos X Amber w/ Lime, Shiner Bock, or Fat Tire.

07-29-2004, 03:28 PM
FAT TIRE, what the he!! is that??

east tx skier
07-29-2004, 03:47 PM
Fat Tire is a beer brewed by the New Belgium Brewing Co. of Ft. Collins, CO. Because they are a small brewery with limited output (and from what I've read, intend to keep it that way), it is only available in certain states. I'd be surprised if you couldn't get it in Louisiana since Texas is basically drowning in the stuff these days.

07-29-2004, 03:57 PM
I think I'll just stay with my Miller Lite, Rusty Wallace would lose his sponser if I changed! :cry:

I encourage everyone to drink as many different types of beer as he/she can. If you run out, you can always start cooking your own.

07-29-2004, 04:12 PM
And to facilitate this, I give you the most useful non-boat-related information I've found on the internet.


07-29-2004, 04:18 PM
I will drink a bud light and coors light if there are no Miller lights within reach. :eek:

lakes Rick
07-29-2004, 07:06 PM
uummmmmm Fat Tire.. I can assure you its available in Oregon...

07-29-2004, 07:10 PM
I'll have to try one then. :toast:

07-29-2004, 07:47 PM
I have had Fat Tire draught in Calgary.... I wonder if it's the same Fat Tire?

That is one of my all-time favorites.


07-30-2004, 10:05 AM
The best beer in the world, is the open bottle in your hand!

My poison of choice is Leinekugel's. Sam Adams for the High brow.

:toast: Happy Friday everyone!

07-30-2004, 11:42 AM
who would the Hawks be crushing Ted?

07-30-2004, 11:43 AM
MICHIGAN again!!! Or whoever that team is that they play 11/13/2004...

07-30-2004, 11:44 AM
funny, if you follow this thread up about a dozen posts, it's a little Big10 love fest.

07-30-2004, 11:46 AM
I noticed that... Seems like a lot of Big 10 fans.
I am from Iowa but went to UT Knoxville. I guess I can go for both since they are in separate conferences.

Farmer Ted
07-30-2004, 11:47 AM
Iowa State or LSU :banana:

07-30-2004, 11:59 AM
BC...I bleed green for MSU...but went to Miami of Ohio for their business school. I pull for MU but until last year they stunk and didn't have tailgating. MSU on the other hand knows how to throw a tailgate.

07-30-2004, 12:05 PM
Tailgating is one thing both U of I and UTK do very well.
IMHO, most of the Big 10 schools could tailgate any other conference under the table.

07-30-2004, 12:08 PM
Agreed, Then again:

I don't think there is a problem anywhere if you have the above.

07-30-2004, 12:13 PM
What, LSU fans are already starting for the home opener. Nobody can stay with the coona$$es in south Louisiana. Forget it, they can't. I've been there and I will not go back. They start on Friday night for a :friday: Saturday night game.

07-30-2004, 01:04 PM
I did some searching on the web for logo's and came across a downloadable animated IU cursor's. I thought it would make a great avatar. Go Big Ten! By the way, are any of you guy's Big 10 football fans? I played from '90 to '94.

07-30-2004, 02:20 PM
I for one wouldn't know what to do without MSU football in the fall. It gets so bad that my wife will not talk to me during a game day. You must have played against Tony Banks and Tico Ducket if you played during the early Nineties. IU had a pretty good run in the late 80's...too bad the wheels kind of came off after Anthony Thompson's era.

07-30-2004, 04:17 PM
Henry Weinhards Private Reserve or Coors original, those are both good beers out on the water. Being from the Pacific NW (Or e gon) there really are to many to choose from.

07-30-2004, 04:38 PM
I have both good and bad memories of Mich. State. Walked away with the Brass Spittoon once and ended my football career the next time. We had good years in the early 90's. Peach Bowl '90, Copper Bowl '91, Independence Bowl '93. Wheels came off when they fired Mallory. By the way, who's drink'n? I gotta have a beer!!!

Let's start a football thread in the fall! Can't wait.

07-30-2004, 04:48 PM
smitty, being a Purdue grad, i've been trying to find the inverse of your avatar, but no luck yet. where did you get that, do yo remember?

07-30-2004, 04:55 PM
Waiting to process an order then it is off to the watering hole.

Football season should be fun.

07-30-2004, 07:18 PM
7:00, Thatís it for me.

Looks like rain this weekend so I may have to enjoy a few:mad:

:headbang: GO BOILERS GO!!! GO BOILERS GO!!! :headbang:

07-30-2004, 10:27 PM
Awesome avatar H2Oskeefreek. I look forward The Bucket game every year. I go no matter where its at. I know that IU's current record against PU is pretty poor. But, we won 4 out of 5 years I was playing.

Stevo, I'm parked down at Pinecrest. I'm renting a lift for the summer. This is my first year on the lake. I got to admit that we mainly cruise around on week nights and the occassional quiet weekend (yeah right). I have seen you out once or twice. Nice ride. We'll have to set up a time and place to meet. If your out on the lake this weekend, I have the Maristar with the customer Red and Black cover at Pinecrest. Check out the SS exhaust if you have a chance.

I love this forum. :dance:

07-30-2004, 10:29 PM
In keeping with the spirit of this thread, I'm drinking Sam Adams tonight. I'm feeling a little bit saucy.

07-30-2004, 10:53 PM
First of all, great looking boat! my son noticed the exhaust right away when we stopped by the marina. We rented there for two seasons until my brother in law bought a place on the lake. Now I get the brother in law special and keep my own lift there. I would like to put a course in next year and am looking for fellow skiers to share. It will need to be the sinking type because you know how crazy it gets out there! There is only one course on the lake and it is an accusink. They ski very early and sink it and don't seem to be very interested in new friends. My 93 S&S is at Expert for a full off trailer buff and detail so I am having withdrawal right now. Will you be out this weekend?

07-30-2004, 11:07 PM
Sorry about the withdrawl. I sent my Dad's '84 American Skier to Expert last year and was very impressed with the results. You will be very happy when you get it back. As for the weekend, it is up in the air as to when we will get out. We have a birthday party next door for the kids to attend. Their having a Dino Jump! Most likely late in afternoon or early evening for a cruise. Does your brother also have a Mastercraft? I think I know where you store your boat. By the way, is the water safe to go in to? :eek:

Rick, are your Ducks staying with those sweet GREEN uniforms, they broke out last year. The Ducks are the PAC-10 team I pull for.

08-02-2004, 10:56 AM
Pleasure meeting you last night. That Maristar could be put on the showroom Floor! Beautiful boat!
Feel free to stop by anytime when you see us out there.
Be careful, it's shallow inside the ball.

08-02-2004, 11:45 AM
You like those BUT ugly uniforms too....

Actually I am not a fan at all... All the football games do here is bring in TOO many people who have too much money and are a bunch of rude drunks... Grew up here, and you could walk in, get a ticket and enjoy some football.. Now its all sold out to the Californians who moved here and took over.. Over 50% of all reserved seats are purchased by people living in Portland ( over 100 miles away) ..

Its not about football anymore, its all about money...

Some trivia... The duck coach, Belotti, got divorced last year. Too many people trying to protect him to hear the real story..

The EX Mrs. Belotti, was caught in the back of a police car with their neighbor ( a cop) BUCK nekkid, in a park, doing the wild monkey dance..... Didnt read that one in the paper did you.....

08-02-2004, 01:16 PM
Just got my MSU ticket pack this morning.

Three games for $102 per set of tix...not a bad rate

Go State!!!!

08-02-2004, 03:06 PM
Thanks Stevo for the comments. Sorry if I seemed a bit out of it last night. I spent the entire weekend catching up on the "honey do" list and I was exhausted. The great thing about that boat is that I spent half as much as a new one and as you can tell, that boat looks pretty new.
Not to complain, but the price on new boats is getting out of control. Out of the big 3 competitors, Mastercraft has priced themselves somewhere in the middle. Correct Craft made a huge jump with the 226 pricing around $75K while Malibu is keeping the 23 VLS at around $45K. At about $60K for a new Maristar, I'm quite happy with what I got.

And, Kudos to all you College Football Fans.
Is it Friday yet? I need a beer!

08-05-2004, 10:49 AM

Is it too early to start drinking?

I agree with that. nothing like an ice cold beer. And of course, guitars atuned good and firm feeling women.
