In the UK, back in the 1970s, before alcohol advertising TV was banned, the commercial (non-BBC) networks ran an ad which showed a couple of Irish guys drinking pints of Guinness. One says "They say Guinness is ninety-nine per cent water". The other takes an incredulous look into his glass and says "Never!"

@farmerman,
When I was a pup I was not a fan of Guinness, but developed a taste for it as I grew older. I quite like the draught can with the nitrogen widget, and I was surprised to find out recently that it's a relatively "light" beer in terms of carbs and calories.

What temperature I want is totally dependent on the type of beer -- the more body it's got, the warmer I want it (up to the aforementioned "cellar" temp, I suppose). And if it's summer and I'm in the mood for one of those cheap American piss beers (usually PBR or Simpler Times, 'cuz they're both made nearby), I like it best ice cold in a frosty glass. If it's winter and I've managed to get my hands on a bottle of Snow Cap, I'll let it sit out in the kitchen for a few minutes before I get to drinking on it. (If I'm feeling patient, anyway.)

Digressively, though, I have to say that the thick frosty mug that's been kept in the freezer is a major childhood sense memory for me -- takes me back to dad's after-softball drinking sessions at Station 108 pizzeria on the highway home, where I'd sneak sips and the Spanish olives from everybody's mug. Summer there was very hot and dry, though, so maybe there is a connection there.

In the same plant where Augsburger was once made. Have you even been to Monroe? I was going to Baumgartner's even as a wee little one, lots of memories Monroe baby swiss and mustard on rye sandwiches, my favorite.

@hawkeye10,
The connection is that both Baumgartener's and the beer plant were for a very long time both owned by the Huber family. They sold Baumgarteners in 1986 I think, the brewery in 2006. Larry the Cable Guy made a visit to Baumgartener's in the following clip:

BTW- I also love me some Limburger...with onions and stone ground mustard on Rye please!

@hawkeye10,
Actually haven't made it down there -- did work a spay/neuter day where a Baumgartners bartender was volunteering, so now I need to get down there some weekday afternoon: he owes me a beer and a limberger and onion sammich...

@patiodog,
Too bad current owners ruined it...they use a marshmallow fake rye now (or did two years ago)...still worth the trip though. They make some good cheese in that town, check out the creamery store too.

If you are ever out in Olympia Wa and see a guy walking around in a Baumgartener's cap it is probably me, but more for good memories of when Huber owned it than now. We used to often drive up from Rockford on a weekend day just for some great sammies and beer. Huber used to put kegs of their stuff in there that was not available any other place but for maybe their Berghoff Restaurant in Chicago.

I don't drink beer all that often but in the hot summer in California and New Mexico, and even in February in Mexico, I like a relatively light beer like Pacifico cold. In northern california by the coast, often chilly and damp a lot of the year, I like dark ales room temp. In winter here in NM, I might have a Negro Modelo, which is a dark mexican beer, room temp. Where are the tortilla chips?

Hand pumped non carbonated beers should not be served ice cold, I think that would ruin the flavour. Lagers like Budweiser should be served cold as stout should be (Guiness etc)
