Mostly Whisky and Beer Anagrams

Some of these really aren't very good. (Should I blame alcohol for that?) They're just a bit of fun to remember some good drinks by.

This is not the world of the raging drunk:

To go on a bender = 'God! Beer at noon?!'
Drinking to excess = Corks exit ends.
Binge drinkers ~ drink beers, gin, ...

It's the realm largely of the beer or whisky bore who laments 'It's all lager & alcopops these days...'

(All lagers and alcopops = Local lads plan a grope.)

But, above all, my hope is that it's a warm and flavoursome world.

Single-malt whisky

Gordon & MacPhail = Plain good charm.

Ardbeg Islay malt = Balm aids greatly.

Bowmore Enigma = Amber wooing me.

Beg: "Oh, buy us a _real_ drink!"
~ "Get Aberlour A'bunadh whisky."

Drink. Gab the blue hours away. -
Get Aberlour A'bunadh whisky.

Thirsty? Real weak? Glass empty? Why not drink a scotch? =
Sip a twenty-year-old Mortlach whisky (cask strength).

The Glenlivet, American Oak Finish = Heighten main flavor in elite cask.
(US spelling, for obvious reasons)

Laphroaig = 'Hi, oral gap!'

Bunnahabhain - 'Westering Home' = The binge: brain-wash one human.

Glenfiddich = Child Fed Gin!

Glen Garioch = Age long. Rich.

Balvenie = Evil bane.

Lagavulin (classic malt) ~ as victuals, calming all.

Dalwhinnie Scotch Whisky = Whine "a kind which's costly".

Bowmore Mariner (fifteen-year) = No more water? Fine fiery amber...

The Glendronach Sherry Cask = "Clean cherry red! Gosh, thanks!"

And an Irish one:
Bushmills (a blend) = Bah, Dublin smells!

Water, malted barley, hops and yeast!

Tastes differ:
Pissy lager = Greasy lips?   --What do they put in this stuff?

A collection of modern craft-beer fads, on which opinions vary:

  including, in the 'vomit-inducingly closer to dessert than beer' category, their

Below are a few items for the less discerning drinker, some of which one might call

A few things that are a bit more Baltic- or Nordic-specific

Lithuania's farmhouse beer = Our aim: Bathe us in fresh ale.

Tanker beer = Break & enter
Tanker beers = Berserk. Neat.

At the time of writing, the jury hasn't weighed in on this soon-to-be-available local drink from a newcomer on the scene:
Level Eleven Rainbow Juice =
Ale newbie: clever/juvenile?
Accordingly, this could refer either to the brewer leading us beyond the realm of hipster beer or to someone just leaving the unfinished drink on the table:
Level Eleven Rainbow Juice =
I leave juvenile-clown beer

Sori Brewing = Sober wiring?

Other drinks and the end of the evening

AleSmith Speedway Stout =

Weird, sad Moneygrab Beer(TM).
Or perhaps
Brewmeister Armageddon ~ made most rewarding beer.

(And for A Tale of Two Beers, visit here).

If the latter beer hasn't scared you away, you might consider this drink:
The Purple Possum Habanero Mead =
Ultra-mad men's pepper abuse! Oh! oh!!

If you like to mix your drinks, you could try these perhaps:
White Russian = Wash! It's urine!

A Planter's Punch = A slurp penchant.

After all that, you might be

If not, you might need something stronger:

the 'madness in a bottle'.

Fortified wine:
If free, I down it!

Vintage port =
Tag it 'proven'.

And for anyone who's had enough to drink that the late-night junk-food kiosk looks attractive:
Draught beers = Death-burgers!

I'll drink to that...
She drinks a toast = So it's tankards, eh?

For those who prefer a non-alcoholic tipple, tea might be on the menu.
English Breakfast = Relief bags - thanks!
Twinings Breakfast Tea = Best at first awakening
Black or green doesn't matter:
A hot cup of keemun? Darjeeling? Assam?...
...Greens do a fuel-up OK. Jasmine? Matcha?

Finally, this new offering from Starbucks sounds as if it might, erm, drive one to drink.
The S'mores Frappuccino =
Un-promo: 'Shit! Feces! Crap!'
Men, it's 'cup of horse crap'.

That's all for now...
