Abraham Lincoln: If you would win a man to your cause, first convince him that you are his sincere friend. Therein is a drop of honey which catches his heart, which, say what he will, is the highroad to his reason.

When I was 16 I could walk up to almost anyone and order a Guinness and they'd serve me just to see if I'd drink it. I was complimented for knowing what a black and tan was because most Texans drink piss.

/mmm Guinness

People who order food or drinks based on how it "looks" deserve whatever they get.

Apparently, British women are dainty little flowers. I order pints all the time.

Every two pints?

Huh? Girls cant order beer?

Damn I guess those 5 pints of IPA I had last night were a figment of my imagination. And I ordered two of them when It was just me and the bartender in the bar. OOH.. the horrors.

The last time I was out drinking I ordered an APA, an IPA and a DIPA and drank them all in a two hour sitting. Slightly impaired. Women in Britain don't drink beer? WTH do they drink?

Chameleon: Apparently, British women are dainty little flowers. I order pints all the time.

Same here. I like to have a pint of Keith's IPA if I'm having fish and chips. I'm somewhat of a ber snob. I won't drink piss like Miller, Bud, Coors, Blue, Canadian, Kokanee, etc.
 
2007-09-08 02:34:52 PM
WTF? I know plenty of broads who order beer.
 
2007-09-08 02:41:50 PM
I know several real-life female drinkers. In fact, there's a beer festival in Birmingham next week (new window). They're pretty much the exception to the rule though, I'd say the female drinking habits are a 1/3 split between lagers, wine and girly cocktails in my experience.

And no comments about 19-y-o girls in bars yet? Shame.

Girls I know who drink beer:
lots.

It helps when you live in Vermont, the state with the highest number of breweries per capita in the nation.


I love Vermont (beer).

" I'm somewhat of a ber snob. I won't drink piss like Miller, Bud, Coors, Blue, Canadian, Kokanee, etc."

That stuff is only good when it's hot as blazes out. Real beer is just too much when it's 98 degrees out with 90 % humidity

When it's hot, I still drink real beer, but I'll go for the special summertime brews, which tend tpo be lighter and good for enjoying out in the sun.

Why should that be an issue? Not everywhere has absurd drinking ages.

CraicBaby: When it's hot, I still drink real beer, but I'll go for the special summertime brews, which tend tpo be lighter and good for enjoying out in the sun.

I read an interview with the brewmaster at New Glarus Brewing Co. (a Wisconsin-only microbrewery, but a damn good one), and I was really surprised to see that he listed Coors as one of his favorite beers... "Nothing beats a simple beer on a hot summer day after a long hike in the woods."

I still remember my first date with the present Ms Costas. When I offered to buy her a drink and, after agonising over what I'd think of her, she finally asked "Umm... Would it be alright if I had a pint of Spitfire please?", I knew it was love...

One of the few good things about Ohio is any beer from Great Lakes Brewing. Mmm. Good, good, good times. I need to remember to ask for Edmund Fitzgerald for my birthday (born on the anniversary of it going down, my parents got married at the Detroit Mariner's Cathedral - good enough reason as any, eh?).

Try a UK ale, or a Belgian Trappist ale, or even a US microbrew beer sometime. You might be shocked to discover that it's supposed to taste of something.

If you choose your drink based on how you think it will make you look to others, you should be drinking Grey Goose with Guido. You deserve it.

/pops like a bottle of shaken ale

I'll give them a free pair with every pint.

My girl drinks good beer, and buys me rounds too. She is so awesome!
 
2007-09-08 08:37:06 PM
My girlfriend would have a serious dilemma: She has a serious shoe fetish but cannot stand Ales.

(Do it for a Stout or Porter and she'd never leave the bar...)
 
2007-09-08 08:50:50 PM
I would order the two pints, get the free shoes and give the beer to my beloved, or anyone else who was there. I can't stand beer, to me it is the second most disgusting drink there is.

/the most disgusting drink is mango juice. I don't care how many of you out there object - I just plain don't like it! :)

I can drink three beers to one against my fiance. He didn't even like the stuff until we were in a locale where I could demonstrate what good beer was (Yuengling needs to be distributed more widely,) and it still took a good four months for him to develop a taste for it. Of course, among our friends many of the females either prefer those tacky 'malt beverage' jobs that taste like Skittles at the Betty Ford Center or straight Scotch, which is my first choice, even over Yuengling Black & Tan goodness.

Dommes drink like dommes. Little subby-boys can have their Bud Lite and wine coolers while we belt our Dewar's and beat them with fresh nettles.
