    A good stout will cure whatever may ail you.

    Baring that, a lager, and in some cases, an ale will suffice.

    I'm allergic to crappy beer.

    My usual standbys (that I usually buy in "bulk" when I go to the store) are Sierra Nevada Pale Ale (or pretty much any Sierra Nevada) and Dos Equis Amber. Also the Lawnmower Ale offered by a local brewery called St. Arnold (and their other brews as well, all good stuff). Breckenridge's Oatmeal Stout hits the spot. Tsingtao is another favorite. And there are many many other, more exotic and lesser known, microbrews that I've tried and enjoyed but I just can't remember the names of right now (maybe I should make use of that "beer diary" my wife got me for Christmas).

    But in a word, yes, I enjoy a fine brew! Pretty much any kind, except for the "lite" beers.

    The last time I turned down a beer was because I misunderstood the question!

    Different beer for different situations. Sometimes a stout, sometimes a Pale Ale, sometimes a lager, sometimes an amber ale. Just like wine, I like whatever is best for that moment.

    I enjoy beer, but I'll decline the contributing to the poll... they all have their place (except maybe the carrot juice).

    Guinness Stout is my all-time favorite brew. I also like British ales and German and Canadian beers. I'm not a big fan of most American beers, but I do like the "smaller" brewery products such as Samuel Adams, Anchor Steam, etc.

    Usually I'll favor a shot of Cuervo or Wild Turkey over a beer. :p

    i lean towards the stouts though.
  12. I'm a real ale person. I like Old Speckled Hen and Butcombe Blonde. I'm also partial to Sierra Nevada Pale Ale. But my fave drink of all is Merrydown Cider.

  14. Why are there over 6500 votes for carrot juice? I knew we were a healthy bunch and all, but bassists tend to like their beer.

    If you're anywhere near Philly, you gotta have Yard's Extra Special Ale. It is the beer that made me love beer.

    Out here in Wisconsin I've come to appreciate Tyranena's "Bitter Woman Ale". It's super hoppy!

    I'm sure most of those votes are not honest answers and simply chosen for the humor aspect. I mean, c'mon, carrot juice?? Yuck!!

    I'll have a Sam Adams Light, please.
