So, you have all been there. You are at a bar or restaurant watching a game or hanging with some friends and the only beer on the menu is B/M/C and in my case Yuengling is also on the list here in PA.

What do you do? I don't drink liquor, and wine is considered too feminine by some, if I even want that sleeping pill. So what do you order?

Personally, I have stopped drinking, unless there is a high quality beer that I want to drink. Even if like Hoegarden, and Guiness are on tap I will not drink a beer.
I am still trying to fight off allowing a beer gut to form on my midsection, so I allow myself to "take nights off" from drinking when I go somewhere without what I consider good beer.
So now I am an ultra beer snob to these guys who only see me drinking my beer or some really expensive stuff that they are afraid to try.

Is this just me? I honestly can not drink the mass produced beers anymore, my tastebuds have been spoiled. The closest thing to a major brew that I can drink is some Sam Adams (but even that is tough anymore).

I'll take a Yuengling or Hoegaarden over Boston Lager, but all three are decent beers in my opinion. But I rarely go to places that don't have good beer on tap when I want to drink, and thankfully, most places around town at least carry some Swamp Head beers now.

Really? You're that insecure, and/or that governed by other people's opinions? Really?

Your tastes and preferences are your call. I can understand the opportunity to fight the beer gut. I love beer in almost all forms, and always find something on the menu to order. It's never my first choice , but drinkable/enjoyable.

EAC bmc bashing threads are so tiring.....

I don't like rice adjuncted light lagers, or rice adjuncted lagers in general, not because they're BMC, or made by the "evil empire" and I'm "better" than those folks that drink it, but because they contain rice. So I don't like bud, bud light or sapporo for instance. But if other folks do, it's their choice. If that's all that's available, I'll drink wine or mixed drinks.

BUT, if they have Sam Adam's or Guinness, or an "MC" beer that is corn adjuncted, such as Miller, or Michelob, or more than likely here in Michigan Labatt's (like when I'm at a hockey game,) and if I'm in the mood for a beer, then I'll have that.

It's beer for chrissakes.....it's all about what you like, it's not about elitism.

... and yeah, High Life ain't a bad beer, especially if you're eating pub-grub kind of food. I'd rather have a nice IPA, but High Life, or a Molson or Labatt's Blue (if I'm up in Buffalo), those go down pretty nice when eating pizza or burgers, too.

Reevy - Do you really have to bash people all the time?
1. I am assuming you are talking about BeerAdvocate?
2. What is EAC?
3. I have never bashed bmc on here before and I really am not with this post....Did you read the subject? What do you order? I just said I won't drink them, how is that bashing???

You have some great posts on here Reevy, but there are also people who don't even bother posting on this site anymore because of your comments to them after posting a question.

Now that Yuengling's hit Ohio, some of the guys from hbt went down and brought some up here. I'm really impressed with their "Traditional Lager" and the Lord Chesterfield's ales. But really more so with the lager. It's rich and full flavored.
