Default What's your dirty secret?

No, not what you're all thinking. Get your minds out of the gutter.

I mean do you drink crap beer and if yes, which crap beer do you drink? I have to admit that I drink Busch light if I'm out of home brew and don't have the funds to drink good beer. I figure if I'm going to drink water, I might as well drink cheap, low carb water.

C'mon guys, confess!

I drink all types of beer, commercial stuff included. I usually keep a stock of Bud Light in the beer fridge, as that is the commercial beer of choice for my brothers, and me too when I am not drinking good beer. I also like Corona once in a while. I come from a large (9 kids) Irish family, so a good supply of beer is a staple. I know that compared to good beers and home brews that it is basically water with fizz and alcohol, but when nice and cold it can hit the spot.

and I am not ashamed to admit it...

I find that what (commercial) beer I drink depends on what mood I am in. Sometimes, I prefer bottle conditioned ale, and sometimes I just like a four pack of Fosters! I'm not into the whole booze snobbery thing (the wine conno's have got that side of things well wrapped up! ) One ale I really love is a local brew to me, HSB bitter brewed by Gale and Sons brewery, and it is only £4 ish for a four pack...good stuff!

Experiment, try a variety of ales, and when you come back to your homebrew you will remind yourself of that whole different level......

That's easy, Asda 4 pack bitter for 88p ($1.50) but only when I'm at a BBQ and have to drive, I drink 2 and leave 2. (2.8%)

Dude, there are limits, there is a line in the sand, and you have just pole-volted over that line!

For all you American cousins, Asda = Wal Mart

It's better than cola or pond water. (Just)
At present I'm drinking Leffe, A blond Abbey beer. 6x12oz.
The bottles will come in handy for early drinking samples.

I soak sausage in Coors before grilling. Then the Coors goes on the compost heap.

Hi my name is Scott and I'm an ocassional crap beer drinker.

Yes, I have been known to keep bud light as well as Shiner Bock in my fridge as staples. I don't have now but I do still ocassionally pick up a six pack.

There I've said it. The shame, the shame

Leffe, nice beer! I spent a few days in Leuven a few years back. The Belgians sure do make good beer.

I don't think that there is much shame in it. It is what it is...Mass produced weak tasting beer. I think the sad part is that for a large amount of people, that is the extent to which they have dipped their tow into the beer pool, so to speak. Kinda like living on WonderBread, having never tasted "fresh out the oven" homemade breads. Doesn't mean that I don't have a PB&J on Wonder from time to time, but with good meals it is always good fresh bread.

That's the analogy I use......
