Just don't drink so much that it ends up being a dreadfully ugly guy...(or even a good looking guy for that matter).

I drink because it satisfies the soul.

I drink because I love beer. I rarely get drunk though, most of my beers are < 4% so I can enjoy many pints at a time if I choose.

It's about the flavor of beer for me. I don't mind a good buzz once in awhile, but drinking beer (esp the stuff I make) to get totally sh!tfaced is not how I roll. Sipping a good beer and trying to pick out all of the unique flavors involved is about 90% of the experience for me. I find it amazing that various grains are capable of adding flavors like coffee, chocolate, fruit, tobacco etc... to a beer.

I also enjoy brewing, because it's a relaxing activity when you prepare everything right. I'm sitting in my front yard right now (about 75 degrees out today), sipping homebrew with a mash on. Country music playing and I'm chilling out telling you all why I like beer. What could be better?

I drink beer cause I love the taste. I don't really go for the high ABV stuff, though they make for a good night cap now and then.

Sometimes, when situations merit, a quart of Apfelwein can work pretty well. Just remember the general warnings.

I drink because I love a good tasty dark beer with a good meal, because I like a lighter ale on a hot day, because I can get a happy glow, because I enjoy drinking something I made from scratch with my own hands, and especially because my stomach demands barley based beverages!

Sounds good. I was just being my usual s*&t talking self initially. I really love trying new beer. Dont get me wrong im still young enough that a good buzz is always a good thing (will i ever grow out of this) The beer i just kegged is only 3.5abv so good flavor goes a long way.

I'm in the low ABV crowd too. I love being able to have lots of beer on a Friday or Saturday night and still feel great and able to put in a good day's work the next day.

All in all, I brew because it's very, very cool. Especially on tap.
