    God bless it. :cool:

    Any particular favorite types or brands? I'm pretty much all over the map. I haven't drank the cheaper, mass-produced stuff (Bud Miller etc) in a long time as IMO it sucks, but I'm also no trend whore or sheeple putz who drinks something because it's popular or considered "cool" to drink. Often I'll get the best avail or what appeals at the grocery store out of convenience.

    Being a relative newcomer, you may not be familiar with the search function here at USMB.
    Properly utilized, you would have found five entire pages of threads with the word "beer" in the title.

    That said, I like Ales and also Pilsner type beers. My favorite is probably Fuller's ESB.
    My get-drunk beer is Bud Light. Relatively inexpensive and the hangovers are predictable.

    I'm familiar. I didn't see any that seemed to be for general discussion of beer. Well actually I saw one and all it had were cut n pasted images of beer - why someone would bother posting that on a message board I'll never know, but to each their own. Point being I was interested in general discussion and thought it might be a good idea to start up a general thread to discuss what people like (or not) and why, what they're drinking lately etc.

    Probably the worst beer I ever drank was called Buckhorn. Back in college (70's) we got it for maybe 50 cents/six pack.

    "worst beer ever" is a tough call. The first I ever had was a Colt 45 and that has to rank (and I do mean RANK) up there. Schmidts, Schlitz, Black Label, PBR...really any dirt cheap beer is classic "get what you pay for" stuff. Gross.

    Funny how the bad beers are just as memorable as the good ones. LOL
    I really enjoy Corona Light. Not qute as rich. Easier to slam down.
    Geez you'd think with NAFTA the stuff would be $3 but it's closer to $7.
