Joyeux Noël!!

Merry Christmas or happy whatever you want!

I'll be away for the holidays so don't expect a new pairing before at least early January. I plan on playing great games (old and new) and drink some nice brews.

What games will you play?

It's a great time to try out multiplayer games and revisit the classics. Let's see a couple :
- Super Mario Bros 3
- TMNT 2 Arcade Game
- Duck Hunt (the perfect game to get your uncle to play)
- Mario Party 1-2-3 (these are the best of the series)
- Donkey Kong Country 1-2-3
- Super Mario World
- Mario Kart 64
- Anything that you have fond memories of!

It's also perfect to try a bunch of new beer or again, go back to your favorites! I have some IPAs, barley wine, weizen bock, stout and I'm trying a new pumpkin ale.

If you want to try something out of the ordinary, take a look at the Sink the Bismark! from Brewdog. They call it a quadruple IPA and it comes with a whopping 41% ABV. It has an intense hop taste, a syrupy texture and a really strong alcohol presence. Drink it as you would drink a fine scotch. It comes with a steep price since you have to ship it from Scotland but if you're looking for a special gift for someone (or yourself), try out this "extreme" beer.

Again, have fun with your loved ones, plenty of games and beers for all of you!!

Play and drink responsibly.

Donkey Kong's Bock

Welcome back beer gamers!

This time I have a classic Super NES game for you. A game that I have fond memories of and that I always love to go back to, alone or with friends. This gorilla is more than just a big villain who kidnapped Pauline and forced Jumpman (AKA Mario) to come and rescue her. Yes, I'm talking about Donkey Kong's biggest role since he was born : Donkey Kong Country!

Contra makes me bitter!

Welcome back Beer Gamers! I've got another hard game for you today, check it out!

One hit kill, lots of bullets, your buddy kills you because he makes the screen scroll up, no more lives, AAARRRGG! That's Contra in a nutshell. This is a classic run and gun game that I never get tired of. What should you drink? Something that will keep you on your toes with its sharp bitterness and give you the power you need!

Can you guess what style I'm talking about?
