IFIND IT REALLY sad that there are some people who are basing there decision of who to vote for on who they would rather have a beer with. If W. is re-elected, chances are he'll be drinking alone. Those of us in the lower and middle class probably won't be able to afford to buy a beer. People need to wake up and vote on the issues. Gore was a bore, but he wouldn't have made most of the country poor. Now is the time to atone for that mess of an election in 2000. Don't leave it to the conservative Supreme Court to "reappoint" W. Let's elect John Kerry and take our country back.

Beer is no longer the cloth coat of beverages, once associated with fast food and cheap dates, acceptable only at the beach, on the foul line, or in front of the television, according to Hal Rubenstein in Elle magazine. Beer has become as fashionable as high-topped sneakers. Currently, the most popular new beer in California is a light, spicy Mexican beer called Corona. What is unique about Corona, however, is how it often is served - with a wedge of lime pushed down the neck of the bottle.

The reasons to cook with beer are as varied as the types of beer. The best reason is that beer can have so many nuanced flavors - unique to each particular brew. There will be sweetness from malted grain, bitterness from hops, and rich fruity tones from the yeasts and other ingredients that combine during the brewing process into a liquid with many possible culinary uses. Belgians have beef-and-beer stew - carbonnade flammade, which rivals the French beef and red wine classic, beef bourguignonne, full of savory meat and vegetables brought together with a sauce featuring Belgian ale to great effect.

Beer bonbons Beer and chocolate have long been classic companions. But they can now be savored in the same sweet gulp with this exquisite six-pack of brew-infused truffles from Christopher Curtin of West Chester's Éclat Chocolate. Crafted as a limited edition fundraiser for Philly Beer Week, Curtin tapped six outstanding local beers to flavor these confections. I especially liked the bright smack of Victory's Hop Wallop, the dark richness of Stoudt's Fat Dog imperial stout, and the fruity pucker of Iron Hill's Belgian-style cassis sour ale.   A pretty pilsner Sip your beer in style with this hand-blown Pilsner-style glassware from Simon Pearce.

THE Daily News editorial "Wrong Cure for Stop-n-Gos" (July 6) correctly indicates that the beer-to-go permit process violated the due process rights of storeowners because City Council commingled legislative and prosecutorial functions. But the editorial rationalizes Council's actions by using these businesses as scapegoats for many of the problems in the city. So it's necessary to provide the other side of the story. Your editorial states that granting a state liquor license to a store depends on Council's acceptance of a beer-to-go permit.

Sidled up against the polished cherry-wood bar, watching the bartender tip a tall, slender glass at a perfect 45-degree angle beneath the shiny brass spigot, creating just the right frothy head on the amber ale I had ordered, an image flashed through my head: Boy, had my beer-drinking come a long way since the days I sat with my college friends on a park bench in the median on Broadway, passing around a bottle of Colt 45 hidden in a paper bag. ...

GRATITUDE TO Harrisburg lawmakers reaching their long arms into the way the city does business is not something we welcome every day. In fact, the messages we send are usually the opposite: Whether it's the takeover of the city Parking Authority or Harrisburg's attempts to Big Foot our zoning authority over casinos, our usual message is "Go away. " But we're grateful for the new state law that puts some sense back into the process of issuing stop-n-go beer takeout licenses.

It definitely wasn't Miller Time in Yeadon Thursday night. Upset with a growing problem of teenage drinking, about 30 residents packed Borough Hall, wanting reassurance from council members that they and police would monitor the sale of beer at a deli on Church Lane. The residents are concerned about the proposed expansion of Span's Deli, at 706 Church Lane, into a convenience store with added seating for patrons. Although the deli has sold beer for about 15 years, residents said the expansion would add to an underage drinking problem in the neighborhood.

Phillies fans - well-known for their ability to boo losers - get a chance to bellow loud and clear about the food and drink lineup at Veterans Stadium. A City Council committee holds a public hearing today to hear fans' opinion of the ballpark grub. The lead witness is Joe Sixpack, the People Paper's voice of the beer-drinking public. Councilman Jim Kenney organized the hearing after the Daily News exposed the half-million-dollar suds-skimming scam perpetrated by the Vet's concessionaire.

Martha Warburton of Middletown said she was disappointed. Not angry or vindictive, just disappointed. She and her husband, William, had appealed to Judge Melvin G. Levy in Delaware County Court Monday to hand down a jail sentence for James Bewley, 25, for buying beer for four teenagers, including their 17-year-old daughter Heather, on the night of Aug. 9, 1988. Heather was killed later that night in an auto accident related to the teen drinking. Levy listened attentively to the Warburtons' impassioned plea and, after noting that Bewley, of the 300 block of South Providence Road, Nether Providence, had no record, sentenced him to three years' probation and a $750 fine.

WITH THE LONG Independence Day weekend around the corner, now's the time to get ready for some backyard (or roof-deck) entertaining. A few cases of summer ale are a good start, but to make the party even more memorable, get in touch with your inner-Martha Stewart. For inspiration, I tracked down Denise Sabia, an interior decorator from Ambler whose own backyard beer garden was recently featured in a photo spread in Country Living magazine. "You don't have to go crazy, spending $20,000 on a project," Sabia told me, explaining that "we're not talking about wine - this is beer, and it should be simple . . . There's plenty of easy, creative stuff that any person can do very simply.

IT'S HAMMOCK time - the lazy months of summer when a boy can dream. This one's already got his feet up and his can in the ice bucket, imagining how to make Philadelphia an even better beer-drinking city. For example: *  Bring back the drinking car on SEPTA trains. How much more tolerable would your commute be if you could enjoy a cold Kensinger while rumbling home from work? Onboard beer sales would attract new riders and generate revenue for the transit agency. *  Give the city's official seal a beer.

TWO AUTHORS dominate the beer section of my bookshelf: the late-British newspaperman Michael Jackson, and Randy Mosher, the Chicago-based author whose Radical Brewing and Tasting Beer are bibles for any beer enthusiast. When Mosher stopped in town last week with his latest, Beer for All Seasons (Storey), I couldn't pass up a chance to sit down for a couple of beers. Here's an edited excerpt of our conversation.

The can-cracking crowds at the Pennsylvania Horticultural Society's new beer garden at Ninth and Wharton have some of South Philly's favorite sons watching over them. We may never know how the famous "Sound of Philadelphia" crooners on the mural feel about pale ales and pomegranate margaritas being poured right under their noses, but it's clear this pop-up's creators appreciate the music heritage. That much is evident from the menu alone, featuring "Al Martino's dry-rub pork ribs," a grilled chicken sandwich named after Frankie Avalon, and a bacon/peanut butter/banana dessert called the "Chubby Checker.

WHEN PEOPLE ask me to name my favorite beer, I usually say, "My next one. " But beer drinkers can be a nostalgic sort (you still know the words to the Schaefer jingle, right?), and sometimes I find my thoughts drifting back to beers of the past - beers that are gone but not forgotten. We've got a lot of them in Philly, of course: Schmidt's, Esslinger, Gretz, Ortlieb's and so on. A couple weeks ago, WIP sports talker Glen Macnow and I asked listeners of our weekly "Bar Talk" podcast what beers they'd like to see brought back from the dead.

You'd have to drive to the Lodge at Woodloch in the Poconos for that.

Cheese(s) of the month, bolstered by beer Beer makes just about everything better, and it's especially true with washed-rind cheese, whose flavors take on extra dimensions when yeasty brew is added to a brine brushed across the rind during aging. Two excellent examples using local beers come from Pennsylvania farms. Tommenator from Keswick Creamery near Newburg in Cumberland Valley is a semi-firm raw milk tomme, whose naturally mild flavor takes on a hoppy tang and malty resonance, thanks to a Troegenator double bock from Tröeg's Brewing Co. A considerably more assertive beer cheese is the funky wedge from Calkins Creamery in Honesdale called Levon's Luck, a softer round that reminds Aimee Olexy at Talula's Garden (where it's included on cheese plates)
