It's not that I like drinking it or would choose it over any other options, I just like being gracious and polite when someone goes out of their way to buy me something.

Just like when my grandmother buys me some tube socks for Christmas. I hate them and won't wear them, but I don't throw the bag of socks in her face and say "**** you grandma, I don't like these kinds of socks!@$%" I just say thanks and take them home with me where they might get worn on a rare occasion or turned into rags.

Or, you could fall in to the catagory that gets heartburn from swill. Bud, Coors, Busch... 1 can and it tears me a new one. Maybe it's the rice, I dunno. I had one guy says, "I have Tums" and still offered me a Coors. Dude, if I have to take an antacid to drink it, do you really think I want it that bad?

Most level headed beer drinkers have no problem and understand.

But every other week he gets to the course way before me and already has the cart ready to go and the cooler full of beer. Yeah, I could just turn it down or break it to him that I don't like BL, but it isn't worth the trouble. It's cold enough that you can down it in a few big gulps without tasting much.
The golf course is, strangely for me, a place where I can drink almost any beer. Last week, someone handed me an icy Amstel Light at the turn and it tasted pretty darn good.

I understand what you are saying but I don't think the tube sock analogy applies. The tube socks are thrown in your drawer and you never have to wear them. The Bud Light you are going to dump down you gullet.

I guess there are two things at play here: A) how much does a guy hate Bud Light and B) how much a guy is worried about offending somebody if he says "no thank you"

Some people would rather drink BL than risk offending someone.

As I see it, if someone is offended when I turn down their Bud Light, the problem is theirs not mine.

I think the more appropriate analogy would be if your Grandmother offered you a glass of X'mas eggnog and you said "no thanks Nanners, I'm really not a fan of whiskey, but I would love one of them there Ruinations you have in your fridge."

I went to an ale house tonight, they don't serve BMC. My kind of place! The bar tender was definitely a beer snob. Apparently I had the audacity to ask why they didn't have Stone on tap (99% of the good beer places in San Diego that I have visited have Stone), and got the response 'There is a lot of beer we don't have on tap', followed by a list of some very good beers they did not have on tap. Snobby point taken without offense! Stone isn't a requirement, I was just a little surprised. Not that there wasn't enough awesomeness anyway.

Oh, they had Alesmith's Speedway Stout, served it with a little piece of dark chocolate. SO GOOD.
