Hmmm. 2 hours mowing the yard in summer, do i want a beer, or whiskey?

Then, chatting with good friends after a fine dinner on a cold winter night, do i want a whiskey, or beer?

If you don't want to sip on a fine porter after a nice dinner on a cold winter night or do a shot of whisky every 15 minutes while mowing your lawn, then that's your own business.

You don't sound like fun.

The problem with whiskey is that it is too efficient. I grew up in Kentucky and love a good bourbon, but if I buy a fifth of Woodford it disappears way too fast.

So I'm enjoying the craft beer craze. I like an IPA that doesn't go overboard with hops. I have been really enjoying a local hefeweizen lately. I like a good ale and the occasional porter or stout. I'm just not getting the sour beers that some craft breweries are putting out. To me they just taste like their fermenters have an acetobacter infection.

I've had a little nostalgia lately, and I know it's totally misplaced, about the earlier days of the craft beer boom.

When you found a brewpub it was a novel concept to the general public.  People would walk in and order a Budweiser, and it just totally blew there mind that a bar didn't serve it.  Let alone the fact that they made their own beer.  So they'd say, "well, give me whatever you have that's closest to Budweiser."  These brewpubs, almost universally ale breweries, almost all had a blonde ale for that very reason.  I still really love blonde ale.  Was very popular back then, basically extinct now.  If it's not barrel aged or super hoppy you might as well forget it these days.

Same with American Pale Ale.  Was *THE* top selling American style until 2011.  Nowadays if you do manage to find an APA on the shelf it'll probably be out of date.

I know, I know.  First world problems, stop liking what I like, etc.  Still, I fondly remember back when it was all unexplored and new.

Gallup has found that beer is most popular among men...Less-educated and middle-income Americans also tend to choose beer.

Where have I heard this before?

Whiskey while mowing leads to crop circles.

Port is a suitable drink on a cold night.

Beer is God's way of telling us he loves us, or it's barley's way of evolving rapidly.

I *am* fun, goddammit.

Porter is my favorite winter brew, but port is fine, too.

Beer may be the alcoholic beverage of choice, but vodak is the alcoholic's beverage of necessity.

A little misleading since 56% prefer something other than beer as their beverage of choice. But the reason that beer is preferred over wine or liquor is simple: it's much cheaper and easier to get.

That's odd. APA's and blondes are all pretty widely available, at least for me. There are a few places around me that tend to adhere to a single style, but those are typically ones that specialize in Belgian's or farmhouse ales. The majority will brew across the spectrum.

Alcohol content per dollar, liquor is the better value.
Good beer isn't cheap, and cheap wine is ubiquitous.
Beer is popular because it it the sweet nectar of the Gods!

I don't drink much beer anymore; I just seem to have burned out on it, and I'm not into the skunky hoppy craft beers. Living in Wisconsin, this pretty much makes me an alcohol pariah.

I'm firmly in the whiskey over beer camp. Mix cheap scotch with soda and a twist if you don't want to get drunk too fast... Don't know why you'd do that though.

Beer is also the most readily available.  Here in NY at least, grocery stores aren't allowed to sell wine, but they do sell beer.

Personally, I don't dislike beer, but if (red) wine, vodka, tequila, bourbon, rye, or gin are available, I'm reaching for one of those first.
