Bears seem to like Rainer:p

bear drunk.jpg
BAKER LAKE, Wash. – When state Fish and Wildlife agents recently found a black bear passed out on the lawn of Baker Lake Resort, there were some clues scattered nearby – dozens of empty cans of Rainier Beer.
The bear apparently got into campers’ coolers and used his claws and teeth to puncture the cans. And not just any cans.
“He drank the Rainier and wouldn’t drink the Busch beer,” said Lisa Broxson, bookkeeper at the campground and cabins resort east of Mount Baker.
Fish and Wildlife enforcement Sgt. Bill Heinck said the bear did try one can of Busch, but ignored the rest. The beast then consumed about 36 cans of Rainier.
A wildlife agent tried to chase the bear from the campground but the animal just climbed a tree to sleep it off for another four hours. Agents finally herded the bear away, but it returned the next morning.
Agents then used a large, humane trap to capture it for relocation, baiting the trap with the usual: doughnuts, honey and, in this case, two open cans of Rainier.
That did the trick.
“This is a new one on me,” Heinck said. “I’ve known them to get into cans, but nothing like this. And it definitely had a preference.”

I can imagine this bear just before passing out was singing, "In Heaven there is no beer, that's why we drink it here..."
Plumb should petition the state to change the name to "Black Bear Beer Lake" or "Drunken Black Bear Lake" or "Beer Lake". :p

That shit's fucking hilarious.
As for me I'm not a fan of wheat beer (damn I almost spelled bear) but a brewery around here makes a classic "Transmission Fluid" with beet and ginger and is one of my favorites. They just started canning them so I'm stoked about that. Other than that I'll enjoy some stouts, porters, lagers, Czech pilsners, Belgian ales, IPAs.

We homebrewed some honey porter last year (top: fermenting, bottom left: bottled).

Late Buddy of mine used to bring Grain Belt Regular back to Ohio when visiting his homestead in North Dakota....back in the day, if it had alcohol in it, and was cold beer, I could drink it...:laughing8:

My favorite is FREE beer. Usually not picky at that point.

Lake Louie Warped Speed Scotch Ale is the house beer at my place. It's a bit on the heavy side, but I ain't drinking for my health.
