    Perhaps if you drink enough of them the pic will look correctly oriented:)

    I helped my son mow his lawn today because his mower is in the shop. He graced me with a new beer to me for my efforts. KC Bier Co Munich-style brown lager dunkel. It is very much in the camp of dark Shiner Bock but with a dunkel finish. Quite tasty.

    My father was not a heavy drinker but he very rarely missed a night without a drink or two. He always said that he enjoyed a drink more that most and a second one was mighty good. It was a rare occasion that he had a third. Wellers and water was his drink and I never saw him drink anything else.

    I wonder why it's difficult to find in LA? It's readily available here in Kansas. My father always bought his Wellers by the case and most often from Oklahoma. He and my mother were both Oakies and we traveled there often to visit family. Buying in Ok had nothing to do with the fact it was cheaper and their state liquor tax was less than Ks :)

    Maybe it's a regional thing with Wellers. I remember as a kid that Coors was not sold in Ok. but available in Ks. My uncles relied on my father for a Coors fix for they thought it was the best beer brewed.

    I always thought Wellers was smooth as silk. I was more of a Jack Daniel black label sort of guy. It was just a little more lively. I switched to beer a few decades ago and have never gone back. I went though a spell of drinking dark rum. Rum, ginger ale, and a slice of lime is a clean refreshing drink. Ron Rico dark Jamaican and I were very good friends. :) I got into bloody Marys for a while too. Spicy hot with a stick of crisp celery was my preference. Smirnoff vodka worked just fine. Hard to beat Jack and water though. Nowadays it's Shiner Bock for me. I like both their regular and their dark. I try this and that now and then but Shiner is my go to.

    I have yet to find a bottle of Wellers in my little piece of NY, it's just not here. It's the one bourbon I really, really want to try but just can't unless I go on a big adventure to I don't even know where. Le sigh. Guess I'll just stick with my Maker's 46 because yum!
