I cant drink Bud Light, Miller Light, Coors light and most non micro brews, except Sam Adams , that is pretty good stuff.


The Change was made when I drank my first Paulaner after a friend kept raving about this wheat beer from Germany after a trip. Now I hate regular beers, but I find that a lot of people especially my inlaws always make comments about why I dont drink regular beer. I usually state that I dont like water flavored beer with alcohol added to it. I am not a beer snob, but I cant stand junk beer, its like eating Burger King over tenderloin steak .

Do your inlaws all drive Gremlins?

[Historical note for you youngsters: for much of its bleak history, the AMC gremlin was the cheapest car in the US.]

I've been called a beer snob and i don't deny it, i wear it like a badge. I am a proud beer snob. I want a beer that isn't made by just a machine. I want a beer that has Barley and Hops. I want a beer that has FLAVOR most of all.

The closest thing to BMC I will drink is Yuengling, JW Dundees Honey Lager, or on the rare occasion Steel Reserve. Most of the time however I refrain from anything that isn't either Mine, something I haven't tried, or a good craft brew.

I will MAKE people pour their beer, i get called a snob. I make them drink Ale's warmer than lagers, i get called a snob. I call BMC watery piss, i get called a snob. Wear it as a badge of honor, say it loud, say it proud.

I AM A BEER SNOB AND DAMNIT I LOVE BEING A BEER SNOB!

Beer is like sex, or pizza. Even when its bad it's still pretty good.

I'm not going to choose to drink BMC if there are other options, but if I'm at a buddys house and he has bud light I'm not going to turn up my nose...

I probably am less of a snob now then before I started to homebrew. I just picked up a 30 pack of Miller High Life to fill out the fridge. I find that I can enjoy all beers for how they are now.

I still can't drink Budweiser though. It still goes right through me like my insides are the Autobahn.

That's how I feel too. I wasn't always a beer connaisseur. I used the drink the same stuff that my friends drink now. Like most people here, I drink my own most of the time and buy the really good stuff to supplement it. But to turn your nose up and insult someone else's brew is really tacky, IMO.

I can still enjoy a macrobrew from time to time and just enjoy it for what it is. It's kind of like having a glass of Kool-Aid instead of pure fruit juice. It is what it is. Maybe it's my working class upbringing, but I'm not above anything.

That's me too. I'll drink what you have at your house and won't complain about it.

Ditto and ditto...

Miller Genuine Draft is my weekend beer when I am going to have several, or when I am not going to sit down and really enjoy a beer.

Smithwicks has become another favorite.

I have never been able to drink Bud.
