    I don't think he was really saying that Bud was a great beer. At least I didn't gather that.

    I didn't say it was a great beer. Its like a utility beer that there really is no bad time to drink one. And when I said it was responsible for 70% of my beer intake that 30% is still more beer than most people should be allowed to drink :). I've drank plenty of microbrews, I've drank a fair bit of imports, I have a pretty good idea of the variety, flavors, ect out there.

    Edit: Wanted to toss this pic in here.

    I liked the Nile Special from Uganda when I was there. 500ML of strong beer at about 7.5%.

    I also like Buddweiser or Bud Light. It was a spicy kick to it after you swallow, and it doesn't upset the stomach like some beers will do. I'm Canadian, but I can't stand Molsen or Labatt Blue.

    I drank Natural Ice for a weekend once, its pretty strong, like 6.2 or 6.5%? Taste isn't real good.

    Well there must be a reason why Budweiser is the number one beer... Luckily there are over 700 beers to please us all. You might get kicked out of Canada, however.

    That is easy! Its a cheap beer that all the rednecks here in the south love! :D Personally I get a headache if I drank just one!

    Its more expensive than Natural Light, which is about 5x better than Bud Lite. Both by same company.

    My favorite's are Negra Modelo, Dos Equis, green bottle, and Tecate, all from Mexico, not that I drink any of them that much anymore though. I'm one of those boobs who drinks Bud Lite most of the time. What the heck, you can get it anywhere.

    Carling Black Label extra cold and Carlsberg Export extra cold are two of my favourite beers. I only drink in my local pubs and never at home.

    Regards Howard :)

    I do not drink beer, but once a friend of my families came down, and when asked what kind of beer he wanted (on my mothers tab) he chose milwaukee's best. I found it kinda funny, he drank about a 6 pack a day of that stuff. Seemed like low quality redneck beer to me. Idk

    Being a college student I have bought my fair share of cases of natty (natural light)

    but guinness killians and yuengling are my favorites.

    Being from Wisconsin I am really surprised how noone has mentioned Miller products of any type. Miller is probably the most popular beer around here with Bud products taking a close second. I guess it is really popular cause it is made here, probably as Bud is made in Missouri and why it is so popular by SNGX1275.

    If I had a beer to drink all day and all night it would probably be a case of Miller Highlife longnecks (bottles) it is a beer with decent flavor and isnt as heavy as most beer.

    But it has to be from a bottle, beer from a can does not taiste good to me for some reason.

    As SNGX has said, these beers are meant for anytime, they are light, watery and hit the spot on hot summer day without making you feel like you had a steak dinner as some of them full bodied ales can. And lets face it, they are a cheap buzz which most people are looking for anyways.

    Also a quick question ? Do any of you weirdo's drink your beer warm ? Like go into a bar and ask for a "Nice Hot One" I heard that is heaven to some Eurpeans.

    However I do enjoy a good beer that could make you forget life a sip at a time, that said.

    Hacker-Pschorr Weis - A really awesome german beer served in litre bottles with a full body and great skunky taiste similar to Heinekin but a ton better is probably my favorite, if avaliable beer. They make a version you can buy in the super market but it is not the Weis brew and isnt as good.

    I do have love for high life in the bottles. The price is sure inviting.

    I also hit up the mickeys hurricane and steel reserve....:D

    I lived in the Prague a few years ago & drank the local Brew from the České Budějovice area & the town Budweis has long been well known for the beer brewed there since the 13th century (the German name for České Budějovice), is "Budweiser Beer"," The American lager was originally brewed as an imitation of the famous Czech original & I can tell you it's nothing like the original! It is a Superb Beer! In Spain I have the local brew "Mahou Classic" it tastes very smooth without the chemical taste of San Migel.
    I'm getting thirsty now, calls for a nice cool Mahou
    Cheers

    If I was to throw a party I wouldn't invest in a good beer, I would simply grab Coors Light 36 Pack x2.

    oh wow how did I miss this thread??? (I must have been drinking ;))

    I love beer (perhaps a bit too much ;)) honestly, I have no single favorite beer... I like many different beers for many different reasons. each beer has it's own unique qualities. in the winter months I only drink "darker" beers, in the summer months I generally drink "lighter" or "clearer" beers. as I'm typing this message I'm drinking a Miller Genuine Draft (I won't mention how many I've consumed already ;))

    I prefer thicker/darker beers, however the high prices ususally prevent me from enjoying them as much as I would like to. as a result, I buy common non-light beers such as Coors, MGD, etc (don't really care for budweiser).

    I have recently started making my own beer. it takes about a month to make a 5-gal batch of homeade beer, but it is worth it :D making beer is actually quite simple, but there is alot of planning and preperation required to successfully produce a good tasting batch. if done correctly, there is no greater reward than being able to drink the beer that you "slaved" over for 4 weeks to get just right. also, it ends up costing about half the price to make your own ales than it costs to buy them "pre-made" at a store.

    drink up! :chef:

    Classic remark :D

    The Czech beer mentioned above ... I've had 1 last Xmas. It was in a 6-Pack of Mix-European beers I received as a gift. Not bad :)

    Asahi is fast becoming my choice of beers this month!

    All these posts show is that there are good marketing reasons for why there are over 1200 different brands and labels of beer in this world. Further they show that there are few good reasons why people drink what they drink. Most beers are lousy drinks that luckily have alcohol in them. Most people drink them for the alcohol, not the wonderful flavors....

    We ran a bar for many, many years, and made a lot of extra money betting that people could NOT spot their own favorite beer in a taste test.

    Any body who thinks they can pick out their own beer from a panel of beers is being foolish if money is involved. Most beers are not distinctive enough to make a difference.

    This entire thread is a joke...

    Completely untrue! Hell if I wanted to just drink to get drunk I would drink liquor! It will get you drunk much quicker!


    I bet you anything you could blind fold me and I could tell you the difference between Guiness and Budweiser! Another completely false statement based on opinion I presume.

    Why did you bother even posting then?

    But that would be easy. With 99 beers, there are at least 17 that taste like Guinness... I made my computer money for a long time betting against guys like you. Almost nobody can do it... Interestingly, Hamms drinkers could usually pick Hamms, and St Miguel drinkers could always tell St Miguel... and there is nothing like Bier 333 because the viscosity changes with every bottle. Most people think they can tell, but since they are already into the habit of buying only one or two labels, they don't realize how similar most are.

    It is not enough to tell they are different. You have to pick your label... cooled to 38 degrees.


    You want to put up the cost of a trip to Arizona, I will buy the room for a week, and the beer. Do you do PayPal?

    Been drinking raybay?
    Most punters will be able to tell the difference between Newcastle Brown Ale & their regular beer (I would put money on it & I run a bar in Spain now!)
    Peace as always

    what's that remark got to do with the price of Bananas?
