Somewhat but I still enjoy drinking commerical beer. Drinking a Paulner Hefe right now. Having a Having a Red Stripe keg party tomorrow as well. I know how much some people hate Red Stripe but I'm a fan.

Most of the time when I have a beer I used to drink lots of, I think it's terrible swill, but there are a few that I actually like a bit more now that I can appreciate their complexities on a different level.

He probably means Magic Hat's HI.P.A. Not sure why it's called HIPA and not just IPA

I'm not that way. For the most part, except for a few styles such as IPA or Stout, if the beer makes foam, then I like it. It all depends on the mood I'm in.

I was in our local beer store, and they had a six pack of Genessee Cream Ale bottles for $6. When I visit my dad in Ohio, it's $10.00 a 30 pack (cans).

We must have gourmet taste!

My favorite brews come from Sprecher and Capital Brewery in Wisconsin. The Blonde Doppleboch from Capital is fantastic. I still drink store bought, but I'm definitely more of a micro brew fan.

Beause homebrewing has gotten me in much closer touch with the process of beermaking and all the ingredients and processes, I pay a lot closer attention to what I'm drinking. While I was never a BMC guy, even moreso I'm focusing my non-HBS drinking on local microbrews, making sure to try as many different things as possible, even things I doubt I will particularly enjoy. That's probably the single best thing that this hobby has done for me, create a much greater appreciation for beer. The closer you get to something (at least for me), the much greater my appreciation for it.

The six pack holder says "not quite pale ale", I just thought it was closer to a pale ale than anything else, it is unusual to say the least.
