While I do give my buddy crap about drinking Bud Light and Corona exclusively, at least he drinks what he likes and I really can't (and won't) fault him for that. The great thing about beer is there's now one out there for everybody's taste. Even my wife will drink the fruity beers and she's not a beer fan. Back in the 80's I couldn't have imagined any other style of beer than what the Macro breweries were dishing out. I'm a big fan of variety and this is the golden age of beer as far as I'm concerned. Let's not spoil it by being assholes to each other. The same goes for wine and coffee too.

I just hate when someone says that my light beer or mass produced beer is piss. Fark you. I want to drink something refreshing at the moment, not something that is going to clog my sinuses and destroy the flavor of what I am eating.

/been on a Beck's tear. afterall, its one of the best 3 German beers

that was a reference, don't list what your top 3 German beers are

Beer snobs may be annoying but Andrew Zimmern is disgusting. I love the premise of his show and he can even come across as a decent host, but when I watch him chew his food with his mouth open and hear him smack his food I want to reach into the TV and slap the hell out of him. Disgusting pig.

Everything they make is good and they have enough variety to pair a beer with almost any food.

In defense of domestic light beer drinkers:

They don't care. Most importantly, they don't care what YOU are drinking, either. When is the last time a guy with a Bud Light sneered at your microbrew?

That question posed, here's another - which group harbors the most assholes?

I'll let you guys figure it out.

The best beer I ever had...

www.savourasia.com

Bia Hoi. Costs about 10 cents a glass. Takes about five gallons to get a light buzz. It's usually poured for you out of a dirty plastic milk jug into a dirty plastic glass. But got-damn is it ever God's nectar when you're sitting on a little plastic stool in Oldtown Hanoi with a big bowl of pho

The most memorable beers I've ever had have never been about the beer.

dickfreckle: When is the last time a guy with a Bud Light sneered at your microbrew?


A month ago a guy drinking a PBR tallboy told me that Goose Island 312 was "piss" and he'd rather drink anything than it.

As far as beer snobbery goes, its one thing to insist upon not drinking "working class beer brewed in the midwest out of cans" in favor of something you haven't heard of in a bottle. If it involves you drinking a "High Test" 18.5% ABV that smells like gasoline and tastes similar and telling me that my unfiltered wheats are "girl beers", and unless I'm drinking something so hoppy that my tongue goes numb I don't "appreciate" real beer, go fark yourself.

/yeah, im sure your tactical nuclear penguin tastes "great"

10 to 1 says most beer snobs would fail miserably at telling expensive from cheap in a blind taste test, just like wine snobs fail every time somebody does it.

Oooohhh, look at me, look at me, I know something you don't, I'm better than you.

Don't get snobbish about anything you eat or drink. Doing either of those things doesn't make you anything special.

Seriously. How did machismo get intertwined with hops? It's to the point where the macrobrews are the only ones you can drink more than two of in a sitting.

That's not snowflakey enough. What beer defines you as a person? What beer will show the world how special you are? These questions are much more important than thirst or beer or ever enjoying anything.

I love a good highly alcoholic, heavy, delicious craft or microbrew.

But I'm going to Lollapalooza today and they served Budweiser, and you know what, I also love that. So I'm going to drink about 15 and enjoy all of them..

The weak and stupid will latch on to anything available to turn it into a social status symbol. Hence why you can't go to a bar nowadays without this stranger interrupting you to make himself feel important by making some snide comment on your lite beer. Hence why I don't go to bars. Because I'm not let back in. Because apparently you can't throw a half-full pint at someone's head.

Most of the people I've met on brewery/brewpub tours got into craft beers for the same reason you just stated.
I love craft beers because I enjoy variety and quality. YMMV.

borg: Andrew Zimmern is an ex-homeless crack whore who often jokes about TMZ & The Smoking Gun not being able to find his old mugshots.


You say that as if its a bad thing.....

Seriously, though: I like Zimmern, even though I think BIZARRE FOODS is a bit too stunt oriented
as a show, and he has a very good point about how foodie fetishization often ruins the simple
pleasures for the rest of us.

And despite myself, and knowing that he's happily married, when I read this quote:

"I like it. I like it very dark and very strong."

I couldn't help but think "I bet you do, big boy..."
