From The Bar! The new place for all things related to adult beverages.

Recommended Posts

Welcome to the new From the Bar section of the mygolfspy forum.

 

Here we will be able to discuss all things related to beer, spirits, and wine; both on and off the course.

 

We are living in a pretty amazing time when it comes to alcoholic beverages. The craft beer industry has exploded in recent years, with craft spirits, and small vineyard wines just behind.

 

From local favorites, to emerging national brands, there are a ton of choices these days. This will be our place to explore these choices.

 

In addition to discussing the beverages themselves, we will also be looking into the key pieces of beverage gear that will help you take and enjoy your favorites on the course. No one looks forward to warm swing lube on the 12th hole!

 

We've got to have the right equipment for our games. for all aspects of our games.

 

Keep an eye out for new and interesting content as we expand our coverage of beverages, and the 19th Hole content in general.

 

Cheers to you fellow MGSers!

Cool with me. Not to sound like an old prude but you will not hear much from me there. Nothing at all wrong with you guys doing that carry on. I quit drinking about 8 years or so now but I will have a beer every now and then here at the house. No hard stuff for me at all. And I am not offended in any shape or form. 

 

I can probably contribute though from my past

Probably will be interesting. I'm not much of a drinker really. I'll have a cold beer occasionally after a round or on the weekend sometimes.

But like Stu... if beer and liquor is your thing....get after it. Hoist one for ole Plaid. Cheers.

Bourbon IS whisk(e)y. All Bourbon is whisk(e)y.... not all whisk(e)y is Bourbon.

 

To be Bourbon, it must be made in the USA. It must be aged in new, charred, oak barrels (almost exclusively White Oak). It must be aged no less than two years to be Straight Bourbon. It must be at least 51% corn. It must be distilled at 160 proof or less. It must go in the barrel at 125 proof or less. It cannot contain any additives or flavoring.

 

 

Scotch.............. later...lol.

The local bar I frequent just discontinued Iron Horse Irish Death, a dark smooth ale that is my go-to beverage after golf.  It was replaced with an IPA which is not really my cup of hops.  No other dark beer on tap.   :(

For the bourbon drinkers, if you have not tried it, bourbon and Mt. Dew. Country people call it Mt. Hollar. City people who use Jack Daniel's call it Jack-a-Dew.

go on........

 

 

Well, I now all grain brew, having started using extracts about 10 years ago. Just recently I bought a grain mill, so now I can buy my base grains in bulk and crush them as needed.

 

The house beer is a James Squire Golden Ale clone call Dr Smurto's Golden Ale. It is apparently one of the most commonly home brewed beer back home. I brew a Vanilla Porter, which is very tasty. I also brew a Summer Ale for the wife...she likes putting the lime or whatever in it.

 

The wine, I do from kits, using 16 litres of juice...those take a lot of time with a minimum of 5 months or so before they're ready to drink. I usually do a Riesling for the white and a Pinot Noir for the red.

 

This is the beer fridge.

      Next steps to my road to improvement
      Current
       Adding the Mizuno MMC FliHi 4 iron to the bag once it comes it to replace my hybrid. The hybrid has too significant of a draw bias, not terrible, but I also draw the ball naturally already, and will probably go in and out of the bag, but I'm looking for better shot shaping with the FliHi and have that 210 to 225 distance into the green and off of the tee. Working on my putting. I'm rolling the ball nicely now with a slightly open stance with my current putter. I have another putter that I can get the ball rolling online, but the pace is off. Future step is to actually get fit for a putter. Working on my natural tempo and swing speed for the driver to have more consistent drives. See below for more info. Next
      Driver shaft optimization. Not looking for a new head yet. I like my 2017 M1 460. Interested in the journey of testing some shafts. Right now my shaft is determining what kind of shot I can do. Slower speed and tempo than my natural speed and tempo. This has lead to a great deal of inconsistency of trying to find the "magic speed and tempo" and I know that isn't the way to go. Swing speed training. I'll have multiple shafts at this point so I can game whatever is best fitting me as I go along. And I can always swing a little slower or club down to hit a fairway. Future
      Get fitted for a putter > get fitted for a driver/shaft and woods from a high level, reputable company willing to discuss numbers and takes the time and right approach. Open to custom shafts and not just from the OEM cart like at a Golf Galaxy. I have only been fitted to a driver once, but didn't purchase as I did not like the experience, small selection of shafts, and I wasn't swinging my natural speed and tempo like I should have.

      I'm really liking the new UI on this forum. It looks really clean!
