mmmm... beeeeeeeeer....

This is my first week of a pledge, with friends, to not drink during the week....
...it's been easier than I thought,
but, god damn, am I looking forward to Friday afternoon!

I drink Black Label. It's the only beer
a bit sweet to some maybe, but it's better than miller and bud and hansa and ...


So thank you Canada, you gave me two of my favourite things; my beer, and Devin Townsend.

I only sipped it a couple of times 20+ years ago.

Why do people drink it like water?


Why not?

First of all, there is no such beer type as "American". We have everything in this country from rye-heavy ales, to hoppy pilseners, to oat-based stouts, to fruity lambics to $160-a-bottle triple bocks.You Have No Idea What You Are Talking About. If you want to take the worst that we make as the representative example, I can say of European cars that they break down at least once a week, smoke horribly even when new, and are very dangerous. But how does that make you feel? Am I being fair?

Agree with you, don't understand the attraction, unless it's cheaper.

Maybe it's what they call an acquired taste, I never acquired.

Thanks for the explanation, if the beers you mentioned have a bad taste, I wonder why they're so popular unless it's the money issue.

LOL oh come on they're not that bad... On a rippin hot day, you'd take an American beer if it was offered...

Its cold...wet, tastes like water...


Not like ye can't get drunk off em...



As a Brit I've often heard about the not so good reputation of American beer, and some of the exports that make it over here don't do it justice. A few years back though I was in a place called Newark in Delaware and found a lot of the pubs had their own micro breweries that created really excellent beers that did them proud - shame they seem to keep them a secret.

Here is something strange. In the past, the most important grains for making bread were changed because the best grains got used for making alcohol. That left inferior grains like Wheat and Oats for human consumption. Most flours nowadays still have a little rye and barley added but the majority is still used for alcohol making.

They even cut down all the apple trees that Johny Appleseed planted in England because people were making wine out of them and it was destroying the families.

And I don't like the taste of liquor. When I get a mixed drink I can always taste that horrible vodka/rum or what-ever is used, and I can't imagine how its like to drink that at a party.

Beer on the other hand

You always know how the beer tastes, and it always gives the same buff.

Go beer!

Thanks ATS. After getting sucked into this thread yesterday I went home last night and bought a case of Sam Adams Summer Ale. For some reason all I wanted was a beer!

I'm one that generally doesn't like the taste of beer. However, I have tried some that were far better than others.

I'm really more of a hard liquor guy, if I'm going to drink.

You know what they say "Ask a stupid question, get a stupid answer"

To get drunk.

Because it's the only way they can stand it ! Very few people drink it for the taste anyway.

Actually, beer has a lot of nutrients in it. Or rather it used to, there's probably less now because of all the modern processes we put it through.

This was important in the middle ages and other times when there was poor nutrition as it provided many nutrients people wouldn't have otherwise gotten.

As for today? Beer tastes nice if you can find the right kind. It's funny, the most popular beers (Miller,Budweiser, etc) also have the worse flavor.

If you want a good Black and Tan, you should try Mississippi Mud.
