    My mom offered me a sip of beer once. I declined, but my brother didn't. He liked it.

    Beer's a'ight. I think when you first taste it you don't like it, but it grows on you. Just one of those things.

    Yeah, beer is definitely an acquired taste.

    Even now, I tend to get attached to particular beers but as a whole I'm not a huge fan.

    Aye, brand loyalty. We all do it, whether it be bands, beans or booze. And for me that'd be Deepchord, Heinz and Stella Artois. haha stella.

    I'm a fan of Harpoon, though I don't know how available they are outside of New England.

    It's not so much brand loyalty as flavor loyalty though? Like, I really like pumpkin ales and a lot of autumn-themed beers like that.

    You can get it around here.

    I dunno, a lot of times a standard IPA or lager or wheat beer or what have you will taste the same no matter what company makes it. There are exceptions with the specialty stuff but I bet I could get 5 different IPAs from 5 different companies and I wouldn't be able to tell the difference.

    That being said, I usually get Yuengling because it is the best beer for the lowest price. It allows me to not drink budweiser/coors level garbage and yet still not pay a lot of money. At school it was Lion's Head which was incredibly cheap for the quality, but I haven't seen that around here.

    Ahahaha, I remember when I would go to stupid parties in college and it was always Bud or Coors or Natty Light because it was super-cheap and people were just drinking to get drunk. (Also Natty Boh, because I went to college in Baltimore. But Natty Boh is a cut above other shitty cheap beers, imo.)

    When I go to parties now, with people who are around my age (usually also grad students or recently out of college), and I see that kind of shit I always think to myself, "Aren't we a little old for this?"

    How common is it? I remember it was pretty rare in Baltimore, but it's in every liquor store here because it's a local brand.

    Also add me to the bandwagon of people who think Stella is gross.

    It's as common as any other beer I guess. You can get it at most bottle shops and beer distributors that have a decent selection. Yuengling is the most common because that's the local thing (#PottsvillePArepresent #America'sOldestBrewery #Sold"IceCream" #SurvivedProhibition #YOLO), but you can still get it.

    I don't think it's gross, I just don't like it and I will never buy it. If someone offers one to me I'll drink it.

    Stella is really cheap, it's the type people drink just to get drunk, hence it's affectionate nickname 'Wifebeater'.

    It's not really cheap here. Here, they market it as a high class beer even though it really isn't, and people fall for it and buy it anyway.

    Aye that happens everywhere, our crap whiskey will probably be sold as premium in the US because the general US public are unlikely to know what scotch is of a high standard. So the price sets that standard, by giving it a high price it marks the item as a premium.

    That moment when you want another drink but you barely have any soda left so you make a drink that's like 75% rum. #Tasteslikeshit #butIdon'tCare #YOLO

    This was me on Sunday during Mad Men, which is why there are some key plot details from that episode I had to ask people on Tumblr about the next day.

    Speaking of which, I think this picture is representative of this thread:

    okay for alcoholic drinks I LOVE BEER... beer for life.. my favourite is Asahi Super Dry from Japan :D i also really like Molson Canadian...uh but most bars and stuff don't have those (the sports bar my friends all like doesn't have Canadian! wtf?) so usually in those cases i drink Alexander Keith's and it's pretty alright. usually most places i can get Canadian or Keith's so i can live between those two haha.

    um. too many bad times with whiskey, so i can't really drink it anymore... i LOVE LOVE LOVE fireball though. tastes like hot cinnamon! and weirdly even though i hate black licorice i love Jagermeister which tastes exactly like black licorice. iunno and i also love Rockstar Vodka... but i HATE energy drinks normally and i dont drink vodka straight. OH and i love coolers. like Mike's Hard Lemonade and Vex and the like. i usually prefer lighter tasting beverages i guess...oh and you can get these premixed Jack Daniels + Cola that are pretty cool even though they don't have Diet Cola and the formerly mentioned bad whiskey experiences. LAST BUT NOT LEAST i love tequila sunrises (for those who dont know it's like... tequila and grapefruit, orange, etc juice, i love citrus juice so i guess it is natural)

    OH are we talking about beers we hate? add me to the Stella haters. i dont like Heineken(sp?) either.
