Beer.
I prefer JW Dundees Honey Brown, but I'll drink anything that hasn't been spit, pissed, or ashed in. Your turn.

When it comes to beer, I like stuff like Guinness or Bass or Corona or even some Sam Adams beers (like their summer ale). People call me a beer snob but I don't think I am...I just don't like stuff Natty Light or Beast Light. It's just because a cheap-beer hangover is something to be reckoned with...
posted by Zach Beane on Jun 01, 2000 03:43PM

I'll go with a Bass now and again, but my personal favorite is Kilians Irish Red. Coors Light is for those times when I don't want to fill up on beer.

A few weeks ago in Decatur, Illinois, I ordered a Moosehead at the local bar. The bartender couldn't believe it. (At first I thought his double-take was a reaction to my youth--upon questioning he said, "No, I can't believe you ordered the Moosehead.") Am I drinking too manly a beer?
posted by Ever Curious on Jun 01, 2000 06:30PM

Ah yes. Canadian beer. They know how to make it. I have fond memories of the beer-fest in Blacks Harbor Canada (well, I remember MOST of it at least) It was sponsored by Moosehead. Enough said. But to answer your question: the Canadian women drank it, so there is no reason to think Moosehead is too manly for you, Amity.

I, personally, was deeply shocked to my foundations this morning when I first heard the devastating news: Japan has haulted the production and usage of beer vending machines. Yes. It is sadly true. No more beer from the same places you purchase cigarettes, candy, junk food, and condoms. A travesty, an utter tragedy. I say we do something about it. I say we Americans buy all of the overseas beer vending machines and set them up here in America. Cause hey, beer goes a long way, you know? Remember the slogan: Beer: helping ugly people have sex since 1892. Don't you forget it, Mister. Beer vending machines should be here to stay!

I must say i agree...Beer has been helping many unfortunate ugly people find sexual release within one another. And we should give praise to this fact and thank nature for hops and barley. And from a personal point of view i must say that my personal favorite would have to be Corona, or Bud Ice, or some other lighter beer like that. Its good stuff and it makes us all smile, unless we're yukin' about 5 gallons of florecent blue and green fluid into the porcelain gods mouth...thats when its been a bad night and the beer just dont wanna chill!

I'm shocked as well Cody...they got rid of beer in the bleachers in Wrigley field...now that takes half the fun out of baseball...I mean now you can't even watch the drunk bleacher creatures when the game gets boring...poor Chicago!

I LIKE BEER, by Tom T. Hall

In some of my songs I have casually mentioned
The fact that I like to drink beer
This little song is more to the point
Roll out the barrel and lend me your ears

I like beer. It makes me a jolly good fellow
I like beer. It helps me unwind and sometimes it makes me feel mellow
Whiskey's too rough, champagne costs too much, vodka puts my mouth in gear
This little refrain should help me explain as a matter of fact I like beer

My wife often frowns when we're out on the town
And I'm wearing a suit and a tie
She's sipping vermouth and she thinks I'm uncouth
When I yell as the waiter goes by

I like beer. It makes me a jolly good fellow
I like beer. It helps me unwind and sometimes it makes me feel mellow
Whiskey's too rough, champagne costs too much, vodka puts my mouth in gear
This little refrain should help me explain as a matter of fact I like beer

Last night I dreamed that I passed from the scene
And I went to a place so sublime
Aw, the water was clear and tasted like beer
Then they turned it all into wine

I like beer. It makes me a jolly good fellow
I like beer. It helps me unwind and sometimes it makes me feel mellow
Whiskey's too rough, champagne costs too much, vodka puts my mouth in gear
Aw, this little refrain should help me explain as a matter of fact I love beer

Warning: Beer Contains Female Hormones

Yesterday, scientists for Health Canada suggested that men should
take a look at their beer consumption, considering the results of
a recent analysis that revealed the presence of female hormones
in beer.

The theory is that drinking beer makes men turn into women.

To test the finding, 100 men were fed 6 pints of beer each. It
was then observed that 100% of the men gained weight, talked
excessively without making sense, became overly emotional,
couldn't drive, failed to think rationally, argued over nothing,
and refused to apologize when wrong.

No further testing is planned.

You've gotta hand it to Grolsh - they maike a mean brew! I love that beer man. It is good stuff. They've been making it for quite a while. I mean you really can't go wrong with a beer that comes in a big green bottle with a resealable cap like a mason jar...

Found a new awesome beer!! At Salem Beers works they have Blueberry Brew on tap and it comes with blueberries in it that float from the bottom to the top-quite amusing when you are drunk:)

If you go out tonight keep an eye on friends!
Police warn all male clubbers, party-goers and unsuspecting pub regulars to be more alert and cautious when getting a drink offer from a girl. There is a date rape drug going around called "beer" and it is generally in liquid form. The drug is now being used by female sexual predators at parties to convince their male victims to have sex with them. The shocking statistic is that "beer" is available virtually anywhere! All girls have to do is persuade a guy to consume a few units of "beer" and simply ask the guy home for no-strings-attached sex. Men are literally rendered helpless against such attacks. After several "beers" men will often succumb to desires to perform sex acts on horrific looking women who they would never normally be attracted to. Men often awaken after being given "beer" with only hazy memories of exactly what has happened to them the night before, just a vague feeling that something bad occurred. At other times these unfortunate men might be stung for their life's worth in a familiar scam know as "a relationship" - apparently men are easier victims for this scam after the "beer" has been administered and have already been sexually attacked.

Please! Forward this to every male you know. However, if you fall victim to this insidious drug and the predatory women administering it, there are male support groups with venues in every town where you can discuss the details of your shocking encounter in an open and frank manner with a bunch of similarly-affected like-minded guys. For the nearest support group near you just look up 'Public House' in the yellow pages.

BEER... "Helping ugly people have sex for over 200 years!"

I have a newfound love for Michelob Light, Milwaukee's Best, Natural Light (and its chilly brother, Natural Light Ice), Pabst Blue Ribbon, and Old Milwaukee. They are truly the finest examples of "quantity, not quality," and I think it's time for quantity, quantity, quantity!

Oh, also I like Molson Ice and Molson Golden, but they aren't quite at the level of Natural Light.

Pabst Blue Ribbon... Voted America's best in 1893.

I personally would like to let everyone know of my affection for beer of every and any kind...except O'douls...that fake ass imposter. But if I had to pick a beer, it would have to be Bass. But y'all know how I feel about Miller High Life...it truly is the champagne of beers. I also wanna give a huge shout out to the mini-kegs. One of the greatest inventions of the 20th century. I also have to set everyone straight here...beer has been getting people laid for more than 200 years...it was invented by the egyptians.

el menu de el conisour de la cerveza:

Newcastle-- nutty brown ale, slightly crisp
Einbecker-- german black beer,expensive,
tasty
Harp-- "irish" lager (made in canada for US
export) rating: eh
Bishops Finger-- "kentish" ale, very krisp,
very tasty A+
Spitfire-- by the makers of bishop's finger
(Shepards Neade) another class act
Zyweic-- a polish porter, not for coors fans
very stout, rich, and filling
McEwans scotch ale-- rich, powerful, creamy,
and sweet
Monty Python's Holy Grail Ale-- yes, monty
python has an ale of its own. says
its tempered over burning witches.
Zambezi-- a lager from zimbabwe. a bit gritty
Youngs Chocolate Stout-- English. Chocolate.
Silky. just like the bottle says.
St Peter's olde style porter-- something
about this beer just says drink more
of me. comes in a cool green flask/
bottle. salud!
Rouge Brutal Bitter-- I am not a fan of
bitter style beers; this beer
ain't right either, but once one gets
past the petrol taste, one finds a
truly spirited brew.
Tennents-- a scotish version of the lager.
Fosters-- "Australian (Canadian in the
Estados Undidos [US]) for beer
(Lager)." often comes in a nifty
24.5 ounce can-- !that's is more
than 2 standard beers!
Old Rasputin-- american mircobrew, as thick
and bitter as the misery of Russia
itself.
Bass-- the red triangle pale ale, it's pale-
it's ale- and when poured over gennius
it makes a black and tan.
Sterkens White Ale-- this has to be the
strangest beer i've tried. tastes
similar to a traditional belgian ale,
very tart, and the colour of ?fresca?.
Kostriker-- german scharzbier, the label says
Goethe drank this " black beer
a heart of Gold.
Tanners Jack-- brewed in leather, tastes like
it as well, a decided favorite of
the BSDM crowd.

of tasting this brew each day
during the advent season
Welcome friends to the world of beer...

Light Beer...liiiiight beer....let me see... It's good for one,and only one thing: FAST and EASY drinkability. So if you know of an occasion when you will be consuming a retarded amount of beer or in this case, beer flavored water, I say LIGHT BEER IS KING!!!!

Well Im talkin about Lite beer......Liiiiite beer. Light colored beer, sure, it can be good stuff, corona, miller, bud. But Lite beer is a step even further down....flavored water. If youre lookin to cut back on the carbs, drink som'n harder, and mix it up with some soda pop if its got too much of a bite for ya. Otherwise, be a man and drink a real beer!

also, i'd like to add that when in dire need of a beer, any beer is good... in your vision (when in need), all beers have no label... they all say "beer" or "drink me".
~beer is good... when in need, beer is great. (but i usually use beer as a chaser after hard drinking)

There is a much overlooked beer that has been an American tradition for quite some time. I think Greg would agree, PBR is a fine beverage, especially for someone on an economy budget. Cheers,
