    Any beer drinkers here?

    I LOVE BEER!

    Yup, not afraid to admit it. I love all kinds of beer; domestic, import, micro-brew, home-brew. Mostly I love trying new IPA style micro-brews, but Miller High Life is my guilty pleasure . My wife is Canadian so you would be hard pressed to not find a Labatt or Molson in our fridge.

    I have never been a huge Bud fan, but lately I have been enjoying the hell out of the new Budweiser American Ale. Besides Sam Adams I think it is now my favorite mass market beer.

    So what do you guys and gals drink?

    I tasted a sip of beer once as a child and thought it was gross, and never drank a single drop of beer after that.

    Do you not drink Jenna or maybe wine? I love a nice Chianti Classico too.

    I'm a fan of Leinenkugel Sunset Wheat and Sam Adams Cherry Wheat. There are also some breweries near me so I drink the local stuff as well.

    I occasionally drink a few sips of wine if I'm at a social occasion where everyone else is drinking wine and expects me to drink (i.e. when making toasts), but I try to avoid it when possible. I don't like the taste, and I'm also afraid of getting drunk or addicted.

    Yup Leinenkugel's is one of my fav's as well. I like the original the best, but the flavors are nice too especially the honey wheat.

    I like Guiness Stout. I rarely consume alcohol though so it is less then a 6 pack a year. I don't mind a shot of whiskey every once in a while either

    Not only have I married a Canadian, but I've also been fortunate enough to grow up in the micro-brew rich Pacific Northwest.


    We have some of the best beer in the world right here.

    Gave up avidly drinking a long time ago, along with smoking. Aside from the occassional cigar and beer I do not partake. Believe it or not my beer of choice is just the old Bud. Leaded not unleaded. As little as I drink it won't hurt me.

    I began going through some of my parents things at my Mom's residence after she recently passed and found an old bottle of Old Smuggler's Scotch. Knowing my stepfather he probably bought it in the 70's at a K&B drugstore in New Orleans for $5. I brought it home and am considering cracking the seal on it. I don't know anything about the name brand. It's probably the cheapest thing you could have bought at the time.

    Well, I will admit that I tend to be a bit of a beer snob. My version of domestic is Sam Adams... it is about the only mass=produced domestic that I will drink. The rest just come off as watered down piss to me.

    I take pride in (through my frequent travels) sampling microbrews and imports every chance that I get. Some of my favorites include Rogue Dead Guy's Ale, Hobgoblin, Arrogant Bastard, most everything made by Delerium, and the list goes on.

    We have a lot of Micro Brews here. I only drink domestic at a gathering but in my fridge you will find good beer, not watered down versions

    I prefer an IPA, but I also like a good Porter.

    I have many grawlers to the Mircro Brews in about a 60 minute radius. The only bad part is a half gallon of beer at one sitting is not very good for you.

    My fav. is by Tyranena
    Tyranena Brewing Company

    They have a IPA "BITTER WOMAN"
    Tyranena Brewing Company

    They also have a IPA that shows up time to time called BITTER WOMAN FROM HELL

    I better go cruise, i could sit on this subject for hours
    Somebody Please, what the hell is that smell?

    Yes. Yes we do.

    I have to admit that I'm a beer girl through and through. Our local microbrews are what I prefer, but will drink a Guinness from time to time. However, my general rule of thumb is that if I can see through it, I won't drink it.

    I'm a pussy when I come to beer. I just like good old Coors Light or Bud Light.

    BUT, when I want something with some more substance, my absolute favorite is Sam Adams Light.

    I am currently in mourning. Samual Adams Octoberfest is no longer availiable. I love beer, but I have purposely had to limit myself to loose some lbs.

    The midwest does pretty well for craft beers as well. My favorite local place and probably the most well known around here is Founder's brewery.

    Here are some of my fav's:

    Cetennial IPA (My favorite beer ever)

    Dirty Bastard (mean ass Scotch style ale)

    Two Hearted Ale (great beer from Bell's brewery that is named for the river in MI and the Hemingway story)
