Drink like a Pirate today!

I really can’t stand Talk Like a Pirate Day. I think it’s cheesy and annoying as all hell. I say the hell with it and if you have to deal with people speaking like pirates you might as well drink like one! Here are my suggestions on how you too can Drink Like A Pirate Today!

Rum
Sailor Jerry – Step away from the commercialism of bottle shelf quality Captain Morgan’s and get yourself a quality rum. Sailor Jerry will not only make a man out of guys but a wench out of you ladies. Trust me, it’s a state of bliss that can only be compared to liquid love.

Beer (you’re only getting overviews this time kids)

  1. Anything from the Heavy Seas collection at Clipper City. 2 of my favorites are:
    • Peg Leg Imperial Stout – 8% ABV. Dark, medium body and tastes like coffee and chocolate.
    • Loose Cannon IPA – 7.5% ABV and my session IPA. Perfect blend of hops, decent head and that perfect little twang to make you remember who’s boss
  2. Piraat Blonde – 9% ABV Belgian Strong Ale from Brouwerij Van Steenberge N.V. Great head with a golden body and flavors of citrus and banana. Also causes you illusions of pimp appeal to the opposite sex.
  3. Shipwreck Porter – 7.8% ABV from Arcadia Brewing. Punch you in the face and steal everything you have craft beer. For the last 3 years this has been in my top 5 of favorite all time beers. It ferments in whiskey barrels so the character will absorb some of that flavor. Like beer? Like Whiskey? Try them both together and find out why you can only drink 2.

There is your list. Go out and drink like a pirate today but remember, even modern medicine can’t cure everything. Be responsible.
