    That's crazy talk. You probably just don't know much about whiskey. I'm a bourbon man but there are great Canadian and even fucking Japanese whiskeys. One of the most popular brands of whiskey in the world is Canadian.

    Being protective of regional alcohol is stupid considering anybody can do it well.

    I don't get this US beer is shit considering how many breweries make goddamn beer in America. Many of them excellent.

    I mean he pretty much ruined the brand anyway when he drank it out of a plastic cup at the press conference

    Personally I'm a rum man but if I'm going dark it's French cognac or Kentucky bourbon.

    Tennessee apple pie moonshine is fantastic too. Big winner at parties.

    Exactly what I'm thinking. I read the article thinking he had it for a long time, but he filed to register in May 2016, beating Conor by a few months. He probably got wind that Conor was going to start making a whiskey and raced to trademark "Notorious," this was during the Mayweather fight hype.

    That's cool with me I prefer good ole fashion Kentucky bourbon. The kind that keeps you warm in the winter.

    Yep. Kentucky bourbon is criminally underrated.

    The craft beer market is amazing in America. I’ve always bought craft beers from around the world. I live in Colorado now and I can say that this is probably the beer capital of the world. There are great breweries on like every corner here

    I’m not worried about where IPA or Pilsners or whatever came from. Unless you’re writing a history of beer novel that shit doesn’t matter. The fact is America is producing probably the best beer in the world now.

    Ya, I guess technically America didn't really create any beer. Though we did popularize the cheap yellow fizzy water. I prefer it to European green bottled beer personally. But only drink the mass produced beer on a hot summer day when nothing else is available.

    Is that true? Did Jeff squat on a dozen site names to keep a splinter group from getting a decent one?
