I would have been in my early 30s ...

I didn't like it.

I got horribly drunk (not on beer) when I was ~14 yrs old. The good news is that it pretty much kept drinking from ever being a problem for me. I randomly tried beer off and on as an adult, but never found anything I liked. During that time, I did develop a taste for some wines, but I was very picky, and could only drink a little before the taste started going 'off'.

Anyway, fast forward to 1997 (yes, I'm old). I'm in my early 30s, and have a business trip to Germany. One of the first places my German coworkers take me, I say I don't really like beer. So the waiter was quite patient (and spoke extremely good English) and had me describe what I didn't like about beer. After a few samples, I found two that I actually quite liked. One was a German wheat beer, and the other was an English stout.

Now I like some beers, and love the rise of micro brews, as some of them are fantastic. My taste is rather expensive, though, so it's a good thing I don't generally drink more than 1-2/week.

Now Sake...that could become a vice for me. ;)

That's what I'm talkin about. Hefe and stout do not taste like lager.

I also don't generally drink more than 1-2/week; my expensive taste and my cheapness keep me safe from alcoholism.

I was probably 14 or 15 and had a couple michelob's at an end of season soccer team party. That was also my first experience with bed spins later.

All beer that is ice cold is good beer :D even nasty Lonestar Light. Beer brings all South Texans together both hispanics and whites or whatever :eek: Just saying beer unites us as one people one country that being South Texas aka technically a part of the USA :lol:...

Everyone's taste is a bit different. Just like my daughter says cilantro tastes like soap and peanuts taste like a burning chemical to me.

I do like many beers. Lagers, ales, stouts, but can't stand overly hopped beer or wheat beer or flavored added beer.

It seems most microbrewery brews I've had are competing to out hop one another. To me, hops isnt a flavor it's a seasoning. Too much seasoning ruins a beer, to my taste anyway. Reportedly, hops were used as a preservative back in the day which is why IPAs are hopped so heavy as they were a loooong time ago.

I've even made my own beer in the 1990s. I had my own custom labels, too. Turned out that making good beer cost me as much as buying good beer, and the wife objected to the malty house aroma on brewing days.

I'm not a fan of wine either, and there are many liquors I like but I don't like scotch or vodka.

Such is life. Plenty of things for us all to choose from.
:lol:

Wine gives me a splitting headache even just a glass. I don’t like the taste.. Beer is so woven into the fabric of the culture it’s normal. The hot weather makes Keystone Light a best seller. Cheap light and cold and basically a low grade swill but it’s easy on you’re head the next morning.

Blanket statements like this tend to be made by folks whose experience is minimal at best. Go to a taproom or brewpub and get a flight. The spectrum of beer types is wide. There are plenty that I avoid...nearly all wheat and fruity beers in my case. Saying "all beer tastes like crap" is like saying "all bread is terrible" when all you've experienced is Wonder Bread. It's not a fair assessment.

Beer is nectar of the gods. A few years back the cheerleaders at the wealthiest HS in San Antonio got minor is possession citations it had to make the news :rolleyes: but they couldn’t say got busted with beer it was they were busted with imported beer :lol: the whole city jumped all over their arses oh it has to be an imported swill? Judge didn’t buy any of it they got the standard fine like everyone else and the local media had a field day.

Ice chest gets heavy so a a good Burro would do is improvise. So I use the wheel barrow to move to cold swill from place to place :D
