Has anyone heard the rumor about Richie Incognito visiting the Broncos?

I was gonna post this ...

It helps to distract people by having the mascot land on their heads ...


What people here don't know apparently, but I think I recall from growing up in 3.2 Colorado is ... the advertised number - that's the MAXIMUM Alcohol content. It's very rare any beer comes right up to that number.

Most 3.2 is ~2.6, most 6.0 is ~4 or 5.

I'm skeptical of the "maximum" statement because they could simply put any number they want on there to potentially boost sales, knowing they'd never hit it.

There is nothing that is as overrated as alcohol percentage in beer.

Meh, no big deal, I just have gout, and if I drink somewhere in the 3-5 beer range it'll set off an attack. So I just decided that I wouldn't drink beer anymore (especially because the good stuff seems to affect it worse and I'm a snob!) So I drink whiskey, rum, scotch and cognac almost exclusively now.

Whats in beer that effects gout, but other alcohol does not?

I don't see Seattle fans as big beer drinkers. Do they still make Zima?

If you get bored of the hard stuff, Sake is really fun. Really enjoy it.

I do like Sake too - used to go to a great sushi/sake place in Palo Alto years ago when I lived in the SF/SJ/bay area.

And weed isn't legal in NC.... yet.
