1 beer: waste of calories
2 beers: bare minimum
3 beers: now we're talking
4 beers: perfect
5 beers: whoa, partner, back it up!
6 pack: I see, so we're getting hammered tonight--got it

you don't have to apologize, you're allowed to like whatever you like.

i freaking love IPAs, but i understand that they're not everyone's cup of tea.

i love beer. i mean i really do, i just love all of it. i'm able to enjoy anything from a coors light up to a 120 IBU imperial IPA and everything in between.

the hardest genre for me to break into has been the sours. that's been an acquired taste for me, whereas most other beers have been love at first taste.

beer rules!

^ You're like my brother in law. He loves beer too--of all types. He actually enjoys the taste of it, but he's kind of a bit of an alcoholic so I think the buzz is a big part of the equation.

I love beer as well, but I love it for more than just the taste, of course. I like everything beer has to offer, lets just put it that way...

Count me in the group that doesn't care for IPAs. More than that, the whole IPA thing is annoying because you can go to a bar and half the beers on tap are ales or IPAs. I do however enjoy sour beers!

What I'm really into are malty German lagers and wheat beers: schwarzbier, hefeweizen, dunkels, helles, Berliner weisse, doppelbocks, marzens (Oktoberfest style), and of course my favorite, weizenbock (Schneider Weisse Aventinus). The problem is that they're more difficult and time consuming to make and so very few American craft brewers attempt to make these styles.

Yep, that's me.

In rough ancestry terms, I'm 50% German and 50% irish.

I 100% LOVE beer

As I should.

I think IPAs are garbage, but I like almost every other kind of beer. My go-to outside of the winter (when I'd drink stouts) was historically wits, but I'm really, really into the farmhouse ale, wild ale, and sour styles which are now gaining popularity.

Bitter beer is disgusting. Sour bear is incredible.

Give me a hefeweizen, wit, strong Belgian ale, dubbel/ trippel any day. Either that or a Guinness if nothing else available.

I think most people get into craft beer through IPA's and then go down the rabbit hole and end up discovering another style that is truly their preference. Like I'll still have an IPA or whatever once in a while, but I've since gone down the rabbit hole to basically only ordering Pilsners, Kolschs, lagers, and other lighter crisper styles. I'll be in the mood for an IPA or darker beer like a porter or stout once in a while or depending on the food, but my go to is ironically now the light stuff.

A. Why wouldn't you drink beer with dessert? There are so many beers that could be dessert in their own right, why wouldn't a super hot (boozy) imperial stout go with thick rich chocolate in exactly the same way as a boozy port wine also goes with dark chocolate?

B. No, coffee is disgusting. I don't drink it with dessert... or any other time of day for that matter. I don't understand how people like it, it's gross ass dirty water that tastes super bitter.

C. Cheese is the only food. Everything else is just sustenance so you can live another day to eat more cheese.

Agreed. I'm an avid tea drinker (out of habit and enjoyment - caffeine actually puts me to sleep), but I don't get coffee. There was a brief period when I was in high school I would get a cup every morning because it made me feel like an adult. Pretty soon after I became a vegan and started drinking it black. After about a year of straight up black coffee I realized I actually hated the stuff. Stopped drinking it around age 19. I went for six years once without touching it, but it's more frequent I try it every year or two now just to remember it's rubbish.

all of you guys who can't stand IPAs and coffee and other bitter stuff are probably just super-tasters.

super-tasters have a higher than normal sensitivity to bitter flavors. they make up ~30% of the population.

i'm ever so glad that i'm not a super-taster. thank you Pizza God.

No. I love Brussels sprouts and eat them like once or twice a week. I also drink grapefruit flavored water every day.

I love bitter, just not in beer/coffee form.

so you're not a super-taster, you're just super-odd

some of the hazy IPAs being brewed these days taste eerily similar to grapefruit juice; you should give 'em a try if you love the bitterness of grapefruit.

Funny discussion... I drink a lot of (Italian-like) coffee in cafés, but can't swallow any kind beer. I spit it out. It's really too bitter. It would make me throw up long before getting actually drunk.

I still can drink some wines, like Champagne or drinkable wines, but I have more and more difficulties in swallowing alcohol.

It sometimes feels embarrassing as alcoholic drinks are often used as something to "socialize" in our society.
I mean, at some point, you're supposed to be an adult and do like other grown-ups, unfortunately.

But fact is vanilla or strawberry milkshakes are far easier to swallow.

I don't know that a $70 bottle is scotch is a good idea for someone who clearly doesn't like the taste of alcohol. Maybe instead, a bottle of low alcohol Berlinner weisse or perhaps a dry cider, like Commonwealth. That's less than $10 for two bottles.

That's what I mean... people laughing.
That's obviously too strong for one's sensitive palate and throat.

Champagne is funnier IMO. It's the very party wine over here, and not always so overpriced.
You can drink a lot of it and go drunk without any excessive pain. Lol.

More and more regions can produce similar sparkling white wines. I think Australia can fairly make it nowadays.
That's fine.

Not crazy about IPAs but if there is a fresh hop version available I'm all over that...such a different experience.

Speaking of France...I was there a couple of weeks ago and was expecting to only find Kronenbourg 1664 everywhere but the French have a pretty decent craft brew scene. Plus all the stuff from neighboring countries...
