I am turning 21 tonight (January 7th) at midnight. Obviously everyone knows what that means.
I still live in Cleveland too. This is basically an OT to ask a few questions about beers/local places and stuff like that. Also, the season is over and it feels about time for the first OT of the thread. I always thought the ones where people talked about beer and stuff were interesting.
I have a few questions to start up the conversation.
What are some good bars around Cleveland? This is directed at current/former residents. Basically ones with a nice atmosphere not filled with a bunch of bros trying to mac on the ladies, while avoiding the grenades (if you get this, you watch the Jersey Shore, are a bro, or know a bro). Also, I don't want to go a place where you play 6-7 bucks a beer. Those places do exist I believe in Cleveland. Basically, chill bars/clubs to drink that aren't overpriced.
What are some good suggested beers? I dunno if we ever had an OT Beer thread, but this isn't just that. I do like Great Lakes, but I don't always want to pay 12 bucks a 6 pack. I dunno how many good beers there are at the Yeungling price level (about a dollar a beer).
What are people's favorite brands/types of spirits? Yesterday I noticed that there is a licensed liquor store down the street. YAY! This place isn't in a great neighborhood but they have stuff like Skyy vodka that I know is expensive. I don't want expensive, but best tasting and smoothest (often, they aren't the same).
What are people's favorite mixed drinks? I really want to try an Irish Carbomb this weekend. Dunno if I will. I also don't know a ton honestly about mixed drinks (I know Whiskey Sours are delicious).
Lastly, any wine drinkers out there? I'm just curious.
