Huh?
I was referencing American beer.
My drink of choice is American whiskey.

Ah yes Hassel. You and I are like minded people.

Fuk beer! lol. Let's get to together and have us some good old fashioned whiskey. Just like in the days of the wild wild west. Although vodka is not so bad either.

But to stay on topic, when I go to buy some beer, I just close my eyes and pick one. lol. Beer is meant to be enjoyed when it's picked completely random. Ah, some day you youngons will understand. Till then, Cheers!


Hassel, that line is from Ghost World, yes? Hm. I thought it was a pretty good movie for an indie.

Having spent the past weekend on a terrific bender giving myself a failed liver and a two-day hangover, I feel qualified to add a little to this thread.

Sharing a case of Amstel between 3 people is rocking awesome. Sharing 2 cases of Amstel between 3 isn't so good.

Youngun? I reckon you are a bit mixed up. The joy of beer is sampling as many brands as you can - much like some beery pokemon fiend. Gotta drink them all. When you find a good beer or a selection of good beers, you stick with them. Thats my story, anyway.

So is a "Black-n-Tan" an abomination &/or abuse of beer? Is it morally & ethically right/wrong? A stout(or other heavy dark) is great! An ale is lovely and pleasent... On their own, each brew stands alone as what it is, and makes the brewer and drinker happy... Should the be mixed? Poor the stount into a mug of ale and it sinks to bottom looks pretty cool, tastes good together, costs more to order at the bar, but is it right? The brewer brewed the ale to be an ale, not to have a stout plopped into it. The brewer of the stout brewed the stout to be srong, thick and firm without question...Now some genius watters it down by dumping it into a mug of ale.
What the hell are they doing? Is it right? What do real beer drinkers think?

Peace,

FINALLY! Seven, you get it. Beers are made with all different kinds of flavors and tastes and styles. It's a shame many forumgoers don't see this and will probably never appreciate different styles of beer. All beer should be appreciated. And to answer your question, no. Do not mix the drinks lol. The only time it is acceptable to mix beers is when you are intentionally trying to insult the brewers. Beer's an art. Art should be appreciated as is.

I guess another way is to send a letter to the brewers and mention that their drink tastes great mixed. May be they'll try it and start brewin a new flavor of beer.

Won't you eventually just stick with one you like? I mean, for Coke, I probably wouldn't touch the other flavours besides the original one if I had the choice. And you'd eventually run out of choices from your local bar, wouldn't you?

Guinness in the overall winner in my book. But it's expensive as hell to get in bottles over here plus tap is better, so I have to wait until I'm of age (in 2 short months) and get it from a tap.
For now I go with cheap American made Budweiser... (stop and wait for the Aussies and Brits to get their jabs in on how gross Bud is)....
My first legal beer will be a Guinness, I'd like to try Boddingtons too. There's a Pub downtown that has all the good stuff... hmmm I long for November.

When I was in Ireland there was a cider I think, called Bulmers... anyone know about this stuff? It was good.

Uh...hold on a second there little man.
First you posted that what brand of beer you drink really doesn't matter, because all beer is good for is getting you fucked up.
Now you say that beers need to be tasted and appreciated seperately so as to taste what the brewmaster was trying to get you to taste.
Which is it?

As for stuff that's fairly availible in the states, I usually opt for Killians Irish Red. It's not a light beer and it's got some decent flavor to it for something sold in the States. It's also about $7 for a 6 pack, so it's not terrible on the wallet.
I like it.

I feel that I should mention I've been thoroughly enjoying a case of Boddington's, bought (and generously shared) by my father. He hardly ever drinks American beer, which is probably why I don't care for it too much, myself. I usually prefer darker ale (as I mentioned before) like Guinness and Beamish, but I must say, this Boddington's is damn good. A little on the bitter side, but a fine lager, never-the-less

I may have to make another trip to Maggiano's. I noticed while eating lunch there the other day, that they have Stella Artois on tap. I was drinking bourbon, so I didn't try it, but I remember somebody recommended it.
Drank Moslon whilst watching my Bucs stink it up this weekend.

Prips
falcon
Zippfer
Norrlandsguld (swedish name)

Coming from the UK there are to many beers to choose one , tonight i was drinking Old Rodger , a 7.9% dark beer from Devon . Bloody nice too , makes standing an art after a few . If i'm in a pub for the night then it's Stella as it makes you fight hard . :fencing:
