    This thread is inevitable on any subforum concerned with food & drink.

    So what are you favorite beers?

    Mine would be:

    The original Czech Budweiser:

    Reissdorf Kölsch (Kölsch is a style of beer only brewed in Cologne, Germany. Super quaffable without being watery, best beer style for a hot summer's day):
    [​IMG]

    And finally, not the best out there, but certainly best in its price class, and my daily companion:

    Also, honorable mention goes to a craft beer I had in the US, Breckenridge something, that was the hardest kick to my taste buds a beer has ever delivered.

    Yeah, you yanks have more (and better) beer than you're generally given credit for. I guess the stereotype is from the 80s and before when, at least according to my dad, there was only watery piss brewed with rice made by one of four or so giga-breweries.

    Not to say that stuff isn't still around, I've had the dubious pleasure of drinking lots and lots of "Natural Light" when I spent a year in the US back in high school, man that stuff tastes like refridgerated piss.

    You could have used an actual good whisk(e)y as an example you know, instead of this mass produced piss.

    Yeah, we already have a "favorite liquor" thread courtesy of our gender-confused friend. This is about BEER you fucking ingrates.

    And I agree that Jack Daniel's, while serving its purpose, is by far not the über-whiskey you yanks believe it to be.

    I agree. Beer blows. Whiskey is where it's at. I prefer Crown to Jack though.

    I don't drink beer often...but when I do...
    I don't drink any of that nasty light shit. Dark brew only.

    I don't really get it... I like whiskey a lot, but I never really saw it as an either - or thing.

    I drink beer as a beverage - e.g. when I'm thirsty, or when I want something to go with food, or to drink something while watching a movie etc.. It's also a social beverage, but it's a beverage none the less.

    Now whiskey is a drink. I drink it, well, when I want a drink. I may drink the cheaper stuff to get drunk, although I like vodka more for that purpose. So yeah, not everyone likes beer, that's no surprise. But whiskey is IMO not really an alternative to beer - I wouldn't drink whiskey when I'm thirsty, or any other time I would normally drink a beer, see above.

    Wine would seem more like an alternative to beer to me, but maybe there is some fundamental difference in how and why people drink that escapes me.

    And don't give me any of that "only pussies who can't handle the hard stuff drink beer" shit, because that's fucking bull.

    And therein lies the difference between us. I'd rather drink whiskey than damn near anything, lol...even water. Light beer always tasted like carbonated aluminum to me, which is why I'll only drink Guinness on tap, but even then, if the taps aren't being maintained at the right temperature, the Guinness will taste like fucking ashtray water. So, I stick to whiskey (and plenty of it).

    I used to love vodka and Red Bull, but since I drink mine so strong, it just started tasting like lighter fluid.

    You know what tastes like sex (other than sex?)...two parts Crown, one part peach Schnapps, and three parts Red Bull. No lie. Best drink ever.

    I take it you're American? Because your light beers taste like shit indeed. As I said, there is good beer in the US, but there does seem to be a lack of good, pilsner-style beers that are light enough to drink when you're thirsty, yet actually have a pleasant taste of their own.

    Drinking whiskey as much as you appear to do is not for me, in combination with all the pot I smoke it would probably cause me to lose any semblance of a functioning life, but to each his own, I guess.

    Also I don't really like mixed drinks, I prefer to drink my alcohol straight, with ice. But that combination does sound intriguing - I would have to substitute the Crown, though, you can't get it in German supermarkets and I don't know of any specialty liquor stores in my town.

    What can I say, I do not partake of the alcohols and so my beer selection is limited

    Tastes nice, but you can get way better for the price.

    Heineken is nothing more than piss sold at a premium. I wouldn't even give that shit to a hobo.

    It's not too bad, IMO. I admit to having sort of a rose-tinted view of it, since for me, it is holiday beer. It's often the only beer available in drink-yourself-stupid resort-towns like Lloret de Mar or Benidorm.

    Sangria-from-a-bucket is proof of this concept; that stuff tastes nasty by most unbiased accounts, but since in my mind it is inevitably connected to wasted nights in Spain or Croatia, I tend to think it's not so bad.
