Beer

Beer

When we last left the Hicks, Sarah was puzzled by John's unprecedented interest in two of our dining choices--
Rose and Crown, and Biergarten.

What is it that has provoked his interest?

Well, what two nations are renowned for great beery goodness?
UK and Germany.

And if there is one thing John appreciates, it's beer.
[this smilie is of a very dark lager, no?]

I had mentioned to him the concept of "beeeeeer flights."

[Think of the 3rd Rock from the Sun episode where the aliens discover "Rooooom service."
This is the amazement with which John has embraced the idea of beeeeeeer flights.]

Beer.
Friend of Hicks everywhere.
I believe thatt studies have shown it has also replaced moonshine as the hillbilly beverage of choice,
most likely because they have discovered it is cheaper and easier
--considering the cost of raw materials and gas prices being what they are--
to just walk down to Skeeter’s “gas and go” and pick up a forty,
rather than firing up the still.

John is very much a casual drinker. An occasional beer.
Usually Amber Bock, but that is mostly because:
1) it’s one of his favorites
2) it toes that fine line between pricey and cheap, the one he is not willing to cross at this point.

Right now, it's all about the cost saving measures.

Repeat it with me: “Saving up for Disney, Saving up for Disney, Saving up for Disney....”

But I digress...

John has been known to chuckle at the Simpson’s episode in which they travel to Australia, and it goes something like this:

Marge to Bartender: “I’ll have a soda.”
Aussie Bartender: “Bee-ah?”
Marge: “No.. soda.”
Bartender “Bee-ah?”
Marge: “SOOOOO-DAHHHH!”
Bartender: “BEEEEEEEE-AHHHHH?????”

LOL

Consequently, he has always wanted to try beers around the world.
Epcot just happens to be the one place he can do that.

Maybe THAT’S why Epcot is his favorite?!?

Well, that's another vivid, albeit short, look into the world of Hicks on Holiday.
I'll be updating more soon, I promise!
[Got to keep stringing it out until Sept., right?]

Wow, and I didn't even bribe you to say that! LOL

Psst -- you need to update your siggie. Tessa is 4 years old now!

Gotta love those princess costumes. K and E are taking them this time. You'll have to tell me how you managed with them in the parks.

Later!

That is one of our favorite Simpson's episodes!

Of course, it must seem like all of them are our favorites, but we do quote that one to each other a lot. We also like playing knifey-spooney when talking about beeeeee-ahhhhhhh.

Try a Kronenbourg 1644 in France if that's not too highfalutin fer ya!

Two others that I really like are:

Dos Equis in Mexico
Boddingtons in England


I'll get back to you later with some more - I need my hubby to jog my memory.

Hello fellow hickster! You know the other day, while driving down the "main" street in town (which isn't really Main St.) and all the cars were stopped in order to let a family of ducks cross the road, I had to think, "Wow, this IS a small town!" But, I love it, we have such nice people here!

Anywho! I'm loving the report! Makes me want to take a trip with 14 other family members to Disney too! Oh wait, we are allready doing that!!! WOO HOO!!!

My girls usually wear the princess dresses to Disney. As long as they are comfortable in them at home, they should be ok at Disney.

I did not realize how much John and my hubby were alike! Beer, sunglasses, loves Disney when we get there.... Next time I crash one of your parties, I will have to bring him!

Boy, that Hkite sure has a gorgeous family, doen't she?? Her younger sister is particuarly perdy.

I thought about writing a trip report, but someone (who'm I'm married to) once told me, "Teresa, you tell stories so boring no one in their right mind would want to listen to them."

A friend came over with a 6 pack of XX the other night. Check.

Boddington's. Got it!

Yeah, put Jay on the case. I'm not a big beer drinker, but if someone speaks "Guy" I can usually pass it on to John and he understands. LOL

Yup. Seen 'em do it for the geese too. WELL, you went right by our house and didn't even wave!

It's going to be VERY hot, so I am thinking I will bring the dresses in a big ziploc and change them at the restaurant. Or something like that. K's Aurora gown has long sleeves. Suggestions appreciated.

I think you and hkite should combine forces on the next one, and tell the same story from two perspectives. Could be fun. Could be evil. Either way, you'll attract a readership. I am sure your stories are perfectly interesting!!! He's just bored because he's heard them all.

Thanks for reading!

Also available in England: Stella Artois (not bad) and Guiness (Jay's favorite but keep in mind this is the beer that drinks like a meal). I don't know if they serve it at Rose and Crown, but Murphy's is also pretty tasty.

And how can we forget Japan??? Try the Kirin Ichiban beer - quite tasty!!

Sometimes in Canada you can get Moosehead (a lighter beer, but not bad).
A better beer but not always available is La Fin du Monde - yummy!

If it's available in Italy try Peroni.. very good!


That's it.. I'm tapped.


For what it's worth, these are all beers that Jay and I have both tried and liked (well, maybe I don't really like Guiness much). So your hubby has "four thumbs up" instead of two.

John definately is a Guiness kinda guy, so he's making notes. Tell Jay thanks!
I'll probably be old(er) and gray(er) before I will get any alcohol again.

Baby is worth it though. Don't need her getting tipsy too.
I always was a bit of a light weight anyway, so even if I could, I probably wouldn't be able to hold much. LOL
Now there'd be some good Hick family memories!

Funny you would mention the Aurora outfit, because i was going to add you should be ok as long as they aren't wearing that one! Those long sleeves are killer! It's been hot when we went, mid to upper 90s and the girls were fine, but if you want them to look nice, (and not like a drowned rat) the ziplock bag is a very good idea.

Hmm, kind of reminds me of a book we have, the tale of the three little pigs told from teh wolf's point of view! I'm not sure which one of us would be the pig and which one is the wolf in this scenario though!

Hey everyone, I'm going to be off board over the holiday. I'll try to have an update when I get back.

Awe, you're both cute little fuzzy wuzzy wolves. LOL
I still think it would be an interesting read.

Hope to see you soon!
