    I love dark beer.. Sam Adams, Dogfishhead,fat tire etc.. i also love to slug down 3-4 every evening.. but several months ago i noticed my belt was awfully tight in my normal spot so I looseded it a couple of holes..lol.. finally i made the switch to Michelob Ultra, quit eating anything white and have lost 12 pounds in 4 weeks..lol... I'm at 200 right now.. 2 things worry me.. will I dry up and blow away and will my trap scores plummet because of my gut not hanging over my belt??

    That Mic Ultra is going to put you at a serious disadvantage sooner rather than later.

    This is my favorite time of year - mai bock/spring bock season. I am enjoying a delicious Seirra nevada Glissade as I type.

    i can't believe that you can actually drink an ultra. drink 2 kingfisher light lagers, walk a mile before bed and then post back in the morning. good luck with it

    blkcloud--- Have you tried Sam Adams Pale Ale? That has been my vice lately. I have went up 2 jean sizes since having back surgery last year. Must be all that hardware they added. Can't be the beer. I refuse to believe that something that tastes that good does that much harm. Thats my story and i'm stick'n to it.

    switch to Guinness, or my all time favorite, Aventinus (14% alcohol). I'm 49 and my waist size has grown only 2 inches in 25 years (Levis size 29 to 31). Maybe it'll work for you, too. :)

    Oh you gotta drink at least a six pack every day, plus the occasional bottle of wine.

    My favorite is Amber Bock by Michelob. Another thing is I prefer my beer to be cool not cold. Seems like you get more flavor that way.

    Where are you finding the Dogfishhead beer? I'm in Missouri and can't find any here.


    I do like the Fat tire beer great malt flavor and not too heavy on the hopps.

    I am not going to comment on weight but I can surely blame a bit of the extra I'm carrying to DosXX or Killians Red and a few Sam Adams....i plan to try some of the new Natty Boh too

    Jim101---My brother lives in Godfrey, IL and he picked up some Dogfish Head beer in Granite City, IL. I'm not sure which store he got it from though. He bought the Indian Brown Ale. I tried one and it was pretty good stuff. Don't think i could drink it all the time though. Just not my cup'o'tea.

    I guess i may be assuming you live in or near St.Louis though. For some reason i do that all the time. I guess much like when i tell people i live in IL and they think Chicago. I'm at the other end of the State(Thank God)!

    I like dark beer with a raw egg in it.

    Obsidian Stout, Black Butte Porter, and some other local darks here mighty fine.

    Don't go overboard and lose that gut. On the trap line it's a balance thing. Most of the top shooters have one. They know what they're doing. Use the beer to wash down pork chops and fried potatoes, then have one with ice cream for dessert. Those scores will go up.

    Note to trapshooters:

    Management has spotted a trend lately. There is nothing wrong with having a Bloody Mary or two with breakfast to open the eyes and get the blood flowing. Everybody can enjoy a Martini or three with lunch. If you don't like tea, a couple of beers will do at tea time. Nothing wrong with a highball or two to whet the appetite, and most people like a bottle of wine along with dinner. Top that off with a brandy after dinner, and no one can sleep well without a hot toddy night cap.

    But, this damn business of sip, sip, sip all day long has got to stop!

    Sincerely,

    Management

    My favorite was Beck's Dark , it was used to chase a Peter Luger's steak. Its been 25 years since I had anything that good. or even close to it.

    "Eat your way to triple A" would make a great t-shirt for trapshooting.

    If you like a very dark beer with an intense flavor try Bourbon Barrel Stout by Bluegrass brewing co, Louisville, Kentucky. It's barrel aged and very good. Cost about $9 a four pack, pour carefully into frosty mug as it has a good head.

    Stout beer has also added some girth to my frame, Try Amstel light, it's no stout but has some decent flavor and very light on the calories.
