    I've drank keystone for about 6 years. I like it, it gets me drunk, and it is cheap. No need to change. For 20 bucks I can get a half gallon of whiskey and some of my friends can have a good time, or for 20 bucks I can get a 30 pack of Keystone, and all of my friends can have a good time.

    A friend of mine swore up and down Shiner Bock was the greatest thing and as a Texan I owe it to myself to love it too.

    I couldn't finish a sip it was so awful.

    Yeah, I like Shiner Bock but it's definitely not my favorite beer in the world. I'm really more of an ale person, especially with lots of hops. I love bitter things.

    Yeah I figured out I am an ale person too with a bit of a IPA thing going on. I bought some more Arrogant Bastard today along with some Ruination IPA. The tastes of these things reminds me of grapefruit rind which ain't too bad.

    Try an Old Rasputin.

    This is a tasty drink that you should drink (if you drink, and like double IPAs)

    That's fine. But it's been popular for a while, and I don't see increasing popularity having any major impact on the price.

    Also,

    Whiskey: .5 gallon * 128 fluid ounces/1 gallon * 40% ABV =

    Keystone Light: 30 cans * 12 fluid ounces/1 can * 4.2% ABV =

    Do that math real quick.

    This thread still tangentially related to having a taste for alcohol or not?

    This is pretty related to that. And interesting too.

    Especially starting around 1:25.

    Somebody bought me some Maker's Mark for my birthday. Drinking it side-by-side with some barrel select Buffalo Trace. Also, the store I work at just got a selection of experimental barrel pints from BT, but not the stupidly expensive Experimental Collection ones. Huzzah.

    BT is my go-to bourbon of choice, but I haven't had any of the barrel select.

    The distributor rep that gets the Trace for us picks out a new barrel every 6 months or so. The current one is super-delicious.


    Come next week, I'm getting me a bottle of High West Double Rye! as a present for myself. Also, got some awesome mid-priced tequila for margaritas tonight. I heart alcohol. I also love working in a liquor store.

    Seriously! I don't understand it. I'm not too picky with beer nowadays, but I always feel that way when try to avoid getting a pitcher of IPA.

    I'm quite fond of red and amber ales.

    that's really all their is to it
    lotta hop heads here

    there are still plenty of other beers people drink
    it ain't like you're going to find five taps with pale ale and then one tap with bud light

    I need to try the Kraken.

    My favorite cocktail ever is a Green Alaska.
    3 parts Gin
    1 part Chartreuse
    1 part Orange Bitters
    Shaken. Drink out of a cocktail glass.
    It's probably the strongest thing I've ever had, mainly because the 140 proof Absinthe I drank was diluted (because absinthe is not something you want to drink straight. Ever.)

    Fortunately it's the Hale's Supergoose and it's really god damned good.

    I really don't know anything about beer at all. Someone enlighten me. Because all I know is that Asahi Super Dry is pretty alright, and Blue Moon is tasty stuff.

    EDIT: Also I had some Guinness once and it was awesome but chronically overrated
