Do you truly enjoy the taste of beer?
.
You'd think I would considering my german heritage but beer just ain't a flavor I crave. I will have a few but it isn't my first option.
For me Vodka has been my go-to the past 10+yrs. with a varied list of mixers. Unlike beer, I don't get that bloated feeling with Vodka.
.
What and why do you enjoy your drink of choice?

Im that guy that hates IPAs. I do like sours and wheats.
Yesterday i mixed it up and had tequila palomas, much better tasting than any beer.
Also broke out a expensive bottle of bourbon. Tasted good, but not great. I dont have the expertise to know whats good about a $50 bottle or $150 bottle.

Beer? Hell no. I can deal with ICE cold Corona's on a hot day, but that's about it.

While making dinner? Berringers White Zinfandel.

After dinner? Jack Daniels Single Barrel or Patron XO.

Coffee time? Kailua or Bailey's.

Anytime? Rum!!! Dark? Light? Love it all. Capt. Jack Sparrow knows his alcohol. 👍

90% of the time- Tequila, topo Chico, lime and jalapeño. If I’m lazy just tequila and soda. Don’t really ever have hangovers from that combo.

vodka soda once in while. Bourbon on the rocks. Maybe some red wine. Beer once in a while. Don’t like that bloated feeling you get form it though.

Same here. Although an ice cold bud light after doing yard work on a hot day is nice. I also drink Claws.

A lite beer is refreshing on the river in the heat.

However a Vodka/lemonade or Vodka/Pink Drink or Faderade is refreshing as well.

Definitely like beer. It grew on me over the years. My regular is Coors light. But I like a
bunch of others as well. medium hopped IPAs, Hazy ipa, sours, are great to. I enjoy hitting brewerys and getting flights.

I drink some mixed drinks now and then but I can't do whiskey, vodka or any hard alcohol straight up for the most part. Not a big shot guy either.

ICE COLD BEER is great on a hot day. Excellent beers from the tap are tasty. And when in Germany, beer is divine (the food, not so great)

Otherwise, a good red wine and vodka with flavored seltzer is the best

Gonna have to try the tequila & topi Chico. Usually a vodka & / tonic / cranberry / pick a lemon aide. Been doing the vodka & Trader Joe’s. Watermelon and cucumber aide lately .
Can only have a few beers and they aren’t refreshing anymore.

I’m a beer guy. Chasing after the finest craft brews. Porter, Stout, Brown, Red, Pale Ale, and IPA (but not the latest fruity trend). The latter is really ruining the selection at stores as it’s 80% fruity IPA of craft brews. Sucks.

An ice cold lager while working outside or boating is refreshing.

Jack and Coke with the wife is fun too 😁

Have you tried Orange Blossom Vodka? No mixer needed.

I love beer, pretty much all of them except sours. Hazy DIPA is my current fave and I enjoy trying them from all different microbreweries.

Miller Lite for regular drinking beer. The Michelob Ultra cactus lime is delish too.

Love a good Paloma or marg too. Vodka is good, but not something I consistently reach for.

It all depends on what ambiance you’re around and what the end game is. Me personally, I get burnt out real quick drinking the same shit over and over.

When it comes to beer, I’d rather drink a mediocre ipa like space dust than any of the other piss water beers readily available. To me, it is about the flavor and have found myself throwing back porters, stouts and ambers lately. This morning I cracked open a Belching Beaver Peanut Butter Milk Stout for breakfast and that shit was delicious. Last week, we went up to Newbury Park to visit some friends and ate at Tarantula Hill Brewing Co. Their hazys, specifically the Liquid Candy, was by far some of the best hazy selections I’ve ever had. Their kombucha seltzer’s were surprisingly delicious also.

I don’t consider myself a beer snob by any means, but I do appreciate a well crafted beer made by local breweries.

Bacardi (clear) and diet coke. Been that way for at least 10 years. Rarely a hangover. If I can get caffeine free DC then I get to sleep just like a beer drinker passes out.

I like the taste of beer...pretty much any beer except stout/porter. I've lost my love for heavy beer like IPA's except for maybe one or two out to lunch/dinner or something.

Miller Lt and Rainier are my go to beers...that and black cherry white claws lol.

I'll take a Tito's and tonic though over anything else with few exceptions.

Definitely agree. 1 or 2 of the heavy beers is all want. Plus they are sometimes 8% to 9% lol.

I'm a huge fan of heavy 8-10% alcohol iPas. That said I'm realizing beer comes with a price and in not loving my gut right now. We are getting a rowing machine and I'm switching to vodka soda for awhile. Love a good Mai Tai ala Billy's in Newport a good glass of wine or a good rye on the rocks

I can't stand IPAs. Love super cold Coronas.

Vodka with V8 splash tropical blend and soda water is my current goto.

Coors light all day long.. but after a weekend of 20-30 of them ..like this weekend I gotta switch it up. Burned out on it. Ice cold corona with a lime hits the spot. Or a nice Michelangelo will do it.

I've heard of that, but never had one. Did it taste good or just super strong.

I also drink Coors Light, because it kinda tastes like beer, and the old lady hates when I drink Jameson 12oz at a time.

If I drink beer, its Miller Light.

We are huge intricate cocktail fans. Meaning cocktails that involve multiple ingredients and lots of prep. Mostly tiki rum based drinks. We have a bar with probably more mixers and high end rums than most large bars.

The new ones (retro summer) are good....but other than that the bud light ones suck except strawberry when you can find it.
