Warning:This is NOT another BMC rant!
When you've got a half case of BMC sitting in the fridge and one outstanding craftbrew, when do you drink the craft? I've had this debate with people before. I ALWAYS drink the craft first. In fact, sometimes I'll have two Old Rasputains and then hit the PBR and get ugly with my buds. Saving the other two Rasputains for another day.
Reasoning tells me that the drunker I get the less I truely taste the essence of the good beer, especially Pale Ales and lighter beers. Thats why when I'm out to hang with the party hammer I leave a couple for the next day and drink BMC to finish the night. Anyone else do this?

I do the same. I want fresh tastebuds for the good beer. Sometimes late in the night, if people are slowing down and just hanging out, I'll grab another micro/homebrew to drink a little slower.

Look into honkers ale from Goose Island, good price point and a great all night drinker. There are others as well. Quellfrisch comes to mind.

I really don't care for BMC, and don't drink it anymore.

I agree, if you have something you have been dying to try, 1AM after a bunch of drinks is not the time to try it. (somehow it still happens though )

I go for it first, too. Have a couple good brews to start the night off and then move into something else once you can't taste as well anymore. I don't care for BMC, so I usually switch to gin.

There is no better feeling than getting drunk off homebrew or high quality beers, though! Real nice buzz, and much less of a hangover in the morning.

No...In fact someone has a quote by me as their sig line on this topic.

I drink the Bmc/or many bmcs first...then I kill that lingering crappy overly sweet after taste that seems to coat the teeth, with a craft or homebrew. The hoppier the better.

There's that old saying "saving the best for last." (Which btw, is actually biblical, it comes from Jesus turning the water into wine at the wedding of Cana...It was served last.)

When I have to choose between one good beer and BMC- I find the Liquor.

My reasoning would go like this:
Does the BMC have twist tops, if yes, then just toss it, it's worthless. Else, invite friends over to drink it all.
Then: Drink the craft brew while waiting for friends to arrive or after the BMC dumpster run.

I absolutely cannot stand BMC beer.

+1!
The closet I have is Red Stripe and PBR, but I really like both, and closer to BMC than that is my keg of Bier Munchers Cream of 3 crops.
Other than that, I just don't buy the junky beer....it's money that could be buying grains.
