My favorite beer comes down to Hefeweizen and/or Coors Light.

I don't know why, but I've always thought Coronas were a bit overrated. And Samuel Adams don't taste very well. I tried to force myself to like their Summer Ale but it just didn't work.

I also like this stuff called Hornsby's. They taste just like apple juice. And by no means they're wine coolers. I think they're like 6%. I get them in 6-packs at Vons.


As far as drinks at bars, I just go with a scotch and coke. I'll try something new once in a while but this combo just works for me, as far as getting to that perfect "buzz" zone.


What are your favorite beers? Drinks?

I rarely get mixed drinks. I keep it simple.

Whiskey and beer.


I like irish whiskeys and single malt scotch. Type of beer depends on my mood and budget. My favorite style is India Pale Ale (IPA). But I've had, and enjoyed, just about everything under the sun.

If I'm at a bar and want to get buzzed very quickly, I will order a couple rounds beer+whiskey (not mixed together), aka a boiler maker.

I usually I subscribe to the "When in Rome" philosophy of drinking. When I am at an establishment with a certain aesthetic (mexican restaurant, white trash bar, irish pub, snooty cocktail lounge, sushi restaurant, blue collar bar, dance club) I will pick a drink that matches that aesthetic. Pabst Blue Ribbon at the working man's bar, negro modelo at the mexican place, etc.

However, there are some bars I frequent where I will always get the same thing because the drink has become inseperable with the establishment. For example, I always go to this one bar for happy hour and will only order Tiger beer. Another bar I will only order PBR. And another, only cans of Tecate.

So, it really depends on the establishment. If I'm by myself in my house I usually have some cheap stuff in the fridge, but also try to have a sixer or two of quality beer as well.

Stella Artois....what a good tasting beer cold. I stopped buying beer well over ten years again . I tried it for the first time 3 weeks ago.

Guiness has alway been a first choice ordering out.

I vary on the beer. Everything from Mac&Jacks to Heineken, to Guiness (love a black and tan) to micro brews. Just no Bud, Coors, Miller etc. (and Corona is the Mexican equivalent of Bud)

In a bar, it depends on the season: Summer is Tanq and tonic or mojito, winter is more single malt scotch ore the aforementioned black and tan.

A good Syrah/ Shiraz or Pinot Noir is a good substitute for beer or mixed drinks.

You could save a lot of money by letting someone else buy and drink the Heffi, and then have them pee in your glass, giving you the equivalent of Coors Light

You might try a splash of water in the scotch, however. Brings out the bouquet and the flavor (learned this in Scotland).
