Besides making beer,(and of course drinkin' beer), sharing my beer and bull$#!*in is one of my favorite pastimes. Just wondering, if you could drink a beer with anyone alive or dead, who would it be?

Tom Waits, he just seems like a down to earth (but neurotic) kinda guy who'd be fun to barbecue with--and I really dig his eclectic music. Even better would be a party with Tom, Hank Williams (Senior), Bob Dylan, Townes Van Zandt, and Leonard Cohen--as long as Bob wasn't too uptight to kick back and enjoy himself. That'd be pretty darn cool. Hmm and maybe invite Einstein, Feynman, and, oh, don't forget BP and DC and Walt (no offense to anyone I forgot)!

looks like i am not the only one having a slow monday. i'll go with charlize theron and dfh 120 min ipa. i dont think drinking with a dead person would be fun. the conversation would be one-sided and it might be smelly.

Dan, a *very* long time ago it was my job to pick up a young Townes Van Zandt at the airport just before a concert. He had gotten drunk and missed an earlier flight with the other (eminently forgettable) artists on the bill that night. He slept in the back seat of the car the 50 miles to the show and we never really had a conversation. Of course he's long gone now, but your mention of his name brought back the memory.

I thought of going the exquisite babes route but decided that'd be exploitative (of the beer) and besides what would we possibly talk about while I'm trying to get them drunk. Another great back-and-forth would be Carl Marx and Groucho Marx.

Maybe Pete Townsend....

And of course, anyone online here would be a fun time :)

I almost didn't post for fear of bringing this thread down but I would've love to have a bunch of beer with my dad when he was my age.

Other choices:
Hophead and BBB... just because
My sons at my age... that would be a hoot.
Pamela Anderson ... 2 very obvious reasons
John and Jim Belushi

when Sting retires do we call him Stung?

All the original guys form Monty Python, with Cheech and Chong for an extra kick.

Or maybe Stevie Ray Vaughn, but he's have to bring his guitar!

My good friend Jason Griffin. He helped get me into home brewing.

He died last year. I miss him dearly. I wish I could have one more night to hang out with him and toss back some beers.

Sorry to get depressing,

My grandfather. He was a tiny little man but a beer drinker of legendary proportions. Suck down 6 or 8 during the day while working in the hot sun, then a few more in front of the tube at night. We used to play bocce and he'd tell stories and let me win. Gone 11 years now and I still miss him. I open my beers with his old Ballantine Ale bottle opener.

What? No Phil? Oh, wait, he's more of the heroin type.

I still want to know what happened at that party after the stars won the stanley cup that resulted in the cup getting tossed in a pool.

I'd love to have a drink with Winston Churchill.

In reality though, I'll be way up in northern wisconsin the weekend after next drinking homebrew with about 12 of my friends from college. A couple of them got me into homebrewing and there will be 4 kegs of homebrew up there. Well, that and a whole ton of Jack Daniels. Good times, indeed.

Yeah Brandon, originally I would have said Phil, but I'd prefer not to have heroin at the party!

Any party at Vinnie's house has got to be insane, and if you make it a Stanley Cup party? Ooooohhhh...

I'm SO looking forward to Damageplan!!

Where in N. WI? There isn't much better than sitting out in the woods "up nort" with a campfire having a beer. It's a wonderful experience. Obviously I assume you won't be doing too much of that in Jan in WI, but you know what I mean.

Isaac Asimov. A guy who knew just about everything about everything and loved to talk. Not likely I'd get a word in edgewise, but I'd be laughing for a week.

My vote would be my dad and my grandfather. Dad died about six years before I started homebrewing (Grandpa died when I was an infant), and I recently found out from my mother that he used to help my grandfather brew beer when he was a lad.
I guess the apple doesn't fall far from the tree...

My father was a lot older than I, and I'm getting to be as old as dirt myself. He was old enough to remember making bathtub gin in the 1920s and even having a free lunch with nickel beers in saloons prior to Prohibition. He might have enjoyed being part of a brewing session. My mother made wine from kits after I had grown up and moved out of the house. I know she would have enjoyed meadmaking.

Bill Clinton. Bill would be the designated driver, he wouldn't inhale, he would be in charge of finding the chicks. And let us not forget the joy of watching some red-neck republican getting his butt kicked by the secret service guys.
