Yeah . . . if you're a woman.

Stella Artois is the champagne of beers, but for my money, I think Guinness is the way to go when it comes to gaming and drinking. I don't know that I've ever enjoyed Guinness as much as I do while gaming.

People accentually drink Stella? Why it has no real taste whatsoever. At least drink Fosters that has a real taste to it.

I mostly drink local beers because the breweries in WI totally own. I also have 3 friends that brew their own stuff.

Beer hipster cred aside... there are a few mainstr- nah, no, actually I pretty much stopped drinking any of the mainstream beers. I'm a total beer snob now. But I do enjoy Guinness every now and then. It's just that there are better stout beers to be had that are local. IPAs and Stouts are my poison.

last table included some PBR,  Molson, guiness, Gin, JD, Wizard, strongbow, limes, tonic water. and a wee bit of sake

As the temperature increased from 33* up to 45* then we'll break out the margaritas and Kampari. Mabye some some rare imported Irish green brews.

There will be a backyard BBQ with sangria,  hamburgs, Old fashioneds, hot-totties, Irish cream into coffee and dribble in some Kahlua. 

I feel like one solid drink will sate my thirsts. All things in moderationl.  Especially when dranks in game demand the drink of one out of game.

I wish I was Tom.

Pabst, huh? So, what's gaming with hipsters like? Do they suggest you bring out the old Random Harlot Table (thanks, Gygax) so they can game ironically? 8D

Edit: Do they also hold Svirfneblin up as their favorite race, 'cuz they're still underground?

Ran a game yesterday with rampant pre birthday drinking. apart from a few points the game went off without a hitch. Well except for my new players distracting themselves with smart phones ... should ban those from my table.

Whoa. Why are you assuming that these hipsters would even play D&D to begin with? It's way too popular. True hipsters play games like Everyone Is John! Crap. I just posted that on a forum. Now they have to find something else to play.
