    Not uncommon. Some people have been cursed with allergies to some of the ingredients used. That is sad I obviously do not have that issue

    I don't drink it to get intoxicated. I just love the taste, the aroma, and the whole experience of trying different ones. In fact, I avoid getting drunk in general - I hate the headaches it brings on. That's why I almost never have more than one beer at a time, and never ever more than 2. In fact, I'd be surprised if I drank more than 2 beers in any given month.

    Back in 1966 I spent two months working at the Elaston Werke in Waldkraiburg. My time there taught me what a good beer should be. From what I understand most of those old little breweries were bought up by the big ones. The factory had no drinking water. So it was the German version of coke or citronia or beer. No choice there!!!

    When I read about the evils of drinking beer, I gave up reading.

    A growler is only a half gallon, right? That's not that much beer for a week's consumption.

    I LOVE to drink a beer after a long ride, no matter what time I finish (and it's almost always before noon). I only have ONE though.

    If I had an emoticon of Homer Simpson drooling, I'd post it. Oberon has been my favorite for several years now, having supplanted Anchor Steam.

    I would say I am probably approaching at least 250 different brews I have had in the last few years. May have been disappointed 2-3 times. I find characters I like in almost all of them, so.................yeah..................I like beer

    I hope to brew my own one day. My Dad used to make some type of "Malt" homebrew that was pretty stout.

    Yes.
    It is not about the destination. It is about the journey getting there.
    Competitors work until they get it right, but champions work until they can't get it wrong.

    Nope. No beer for me. I'm convinced that my taste buds just never matured as most people's do. When your a kid, it is all about what is sweet. As you grow up, most people learn to appriciate more complex flavors, like the bitter taste in coffee. But I never did that. I have not tasted this flavor "too sweet" that I hear people talk about. I have never liked the taste of coffee or beer or most alcohols. I gained all my weight drinking soda pop and eating ice cream. But my wife enjoys having a designated driver around when she wants to meet friends for a few beers.

    the only beer that I've ever met that I didn't like had some ridiculous ingredients like orange peel, or coriander, or both.

    Not for me. I remember being allowed tiny tastes of my dad's beer when I was a kid and loving it. Once, when I was 8, we were on vacation at an uncle's house in California, and he and my dad were hand-cranking ice cream in the hot sun - they had a couple of cans of beer at hand for refreshment during their exertions, and while Dad was taking his turns at the crank, my brother and I snuck the entire can.

    I loved it then, and still do, although my tastes have matured. Back then those beers were the basic pale American lagers (Bud, Schlitz, Hamms, Pabst, etc.) that I largely think of as tasteless now.
