Beer Hangovers

Saddleoflamb | Jul 27, 2008 07:39 AM

Back in the day , both before I knew better and before the advent of the full blown onset of the Micro revolution, I can remember head splitting beer hangovers...........we're talking curled up in a fetal ball, thumb in mouth ,crying for my mother, beer hangovers....(late highschool/college....pre marriage /kids).
These were initiated by imbibing one too many mass produced Buds, Coors,Michelobs,....even some of the imports Heineken, Carlsbergs.....some ,what I thought were quality American brews Andeker(sp), Prior Double Dark.....
Now this wasn't a regular occurrance, but when it did happen I was out for a matter how many gallons of cold water and aspirin .
This all changed /went away since the creation of Sierra Nevada and the ensueing rise of the Micro Brew.....have never again had that cranium thumping , crawl back under a rock, experience........why?
Was it the additives? The quality of ingredients?........
Bud comes to mind as the most vile offender........What brings back not so fond memories of lost weekends to you.......
