I have an 8.45 ounce bottle of Sam Adams Triple Bock, ca. 1994, an ale brewed w/ maple syrup, that I was given as a gift. I just found it again in a cabinet. It's been sealed well, kept in dark spaces in air conditioned spaces mostly. Safe to drink? Keep aging? Bury in a landfill?

Can you buy the Czech beer Gambrinus in the U.S.? Or can you order it online and have it shipped to the U.S.? I got really into it when I was in Prague and now I miss it.

Why does drinking beer make me sick? I've tried different types of beers (ales, stouts, weissbeers) and without fail they will make me feel nauseous about an hour after drinking. Why? [more inside]

Is there an American maker of good ginger Shandy? I can get the Carib brand in my neighborhood, but the ginger flavor is kind of sucky. Alternatively, is there such a thing as an alcoholic ginger ale made in the US? [more inside]

I have lived here for almost all of my adult life and don't know this-- What is the best package store in the Boston area for beer? I want something like Beers of the World outside Rochester, NY and I can't find it: beers from all over the world, and regional beers from the US. I know of some decent places, but nothing that makes me feel like I have just entered Mecca. Lets try to keep it in the 495 Loop, but I will drive further than that if the place sounds really fantastic. Baseball season is here and summer is coming so I am looking forward to some nice beer.

Where can I find a digital copy of this beer commercial: It starts out with our protagonist (I think it's Joey Slotnick
) walking, and a voiceover -- "You're at a party. You've got a cold beer, and a brand new shirt. You're . . . a tiger." Then, he takes a sip of the beer and his face shrivels up, and a couple of girls cringe. "Whoa! Bitter Beer Face!" Then, that's solved by drinking Keystone Light, and then the scene switches to noir; he's in a white tux with his hair slicked back, both of the girls on his arms, and he says in a David Niven accent, "Pack your bags -- we sail TONIGHT!"

I'm not much of a beer drinker, but I found out (when visiting family in Philly) that I really like Yuengling. However, I live in Portland, OR, where there is no Yuengling in sight and my beer drinking friends have never even heard of it. Based on this preference, what other beers (esp. those common to the northwest) would I enjoy?

I'm looking to build a site that allows its users to submit and/or search pricing and availability information for "widgets" at local brick and mortar retail stores.
The model I have in mind would be similar to the user-supported gas price sites that popped up about a year ago, in which people entered what they paid for what type of gas, and other users then could type in a zip code and see the best prices near them.
So, being a non-programmer (but willing to learn through trial and error), what language/framework/open-source code do I use to build this? [more inside]

I seem to remember hearing about a brewery in a European city using old utility pipes to deliver beer directly into peoples' houses. Did I make that up? A friend thinks so, and I agree: it sounds too good to be true. Has anybody else heard this?
