Highly recommend New Holland Beer Barrel bourbon. I have had basically all of them and it is special. The history behind it is interesting too.

Only recently found this brand at my local, will be trying it again with dinner.


Nineteen crimes turned criminals into colonists. Upon conviction British rogues guilty of a least one of the 19 crimes were sentenced to live in Australia, rather than death. This punishment by "transportation" began in 1783 and many of the lawless died at sea. For the rough-hewn prisoners who made it to shore, a new world awaited. As pioneers in a frontier penal colony, they forged a new country and new lives, brick by brick. This wine celebrates the rules they broke and the culture they built. .


  1. Grand Larceny, theft above the value of one shilling
  2. Petty Larceny, theft under one shilling.
  3. Buying or receiving stolen goods, jewels, and plate...
  4. Stealing lead, iron, or copper, or buying or receiving.
  5. Impersonating an Egyptian.
  6. Stealing from furnished lodgings.
  7. Setting fire to underwood.
  8. Stealing letters, advancing the postage, and secreting the money.
  9. Assault with an intent to rob.
  10. Stealing fish from a pond or river.
  11. Stealing roots, trees, or plants, or destroying them.
  12. Bigamy.
  13. Assaulting, cutting, or burning clothes.
  14. Counterfeiting the copper coin...
  15. Clandestine marriage.
  16. Stealing a shroud out of a grave.
  17. Watermen carrying too many passengers on the Thames, if any drowned.
  18. Incorrigible rogues who broke out of Prison and persons reprieved from capital punishment.
  19. Embeuling Naval Stores, in certain cases.

Beers is easy. I remember when I could work the next day after a 1 liter of bourbon. Now after a 750 I'm suffering. But I'm not very big either.

Seems some of the convicts preferred America...

"Only those who have stood within the bars and heard the din of devils and the appalling sounds of despair can imagine the horrors of the hold of a convict ship." - John Boyle O'Reilly

Some men overcome adversity. Others make an art of it. In 1867 John Boyle O'Reilly was given a sentence second only to death in its severity: transportation. O'Reilly, however, was no ordinary convict. He published poetry throughout the harrowing journey to Australia and, once there, outwitted prison guards to escape to America.

A British conscript turned infamous convict, Michael Harrington is perhaps best known for orchestrating one of the most daring escapes from Australia. In 1876, Harrington, along with six others, braved a massive typhoon in nothing more than a tiny rowboat to board an American whaling ship in what is now remembered as the "Catalpa Rescue."

Not today, gents. 12 days into sober October. (I may have cheated on the 3rd as some friends took me out to dinner for my birthday and being mama raised no fool, I can't pass up free drinks.)

Had to wait until I got home. Oddly enough they don’t sell adult beverages at high school girls volleyball games. If they were to change their mind and give it a try, the hosting booster club would make a small fortune.
You might need to try Catholic school. My dad ran the liquor and gambling concessions for both my grammar school and high school Fairs.

It wasn't until I left New Orleans that I realized that all school fairs don't have beer trucks, cash bars, and casinos.

Hang in there. Someday you'll graduate to single malts.
We like them too, just not any of the 'peaty' ones. The gamut of flavors that are in the Bourbon's though (low rye) is our main interest here. Lot of that has to do with cost. Good Bourbon 'to the dollar' is a lot more accessible to us than good Scotch 'to the dollar' (squared)

Simple economics.

Nah, I think that's called alchynomics.

Hate the taste of any scotch I tried and I have tried many.

Bourbon and Rye is where it's at....along with Gin

You find

Always drinking...LOL

The reality of drinking is like living on the edge of a straight razor. I'm not talking about problem drinking. There is an obvious difference. The issue with people that like to drink find themselves in is related to the moment.

The malady is "binge" drinking. I hate that phrase because it isn't accurate. But it is all I have. The reality is I can go out and have one drink and be totally happy. However, if I am out with the right people at a happening event....well...game on. I can drink all f'ing night. It is scary. My wife is like...this isn't normal.....HAHAHAHAHA

Let me hear from fellow drinkers. What motivates you in these situations

I am literally having a full blown bar installed in my house next week.

Sinks, 2x beer fridge, 1x wine fridge, 1x champagne fridge, ice maker. Trying to figure out how to incorporate taps for pony kegs.

You faggots are invited over. Pool table to go infront of it is next.

Any ideas for cool bar glassware?

I don't drink but I sure do love my sodas. 280ish different ones since June 2011. I think I might have a problem with them. Also have a good 12 new ones at home.
