I find porters to be too heavy most of the time. I enjoy a good IPA now and again, but if I'm honest, it seems to be the easy way out for microbrewers, two scoops hops, one scoop sugar, clever name, bottle, sell. They mostly taste good but they often taste more or less the same, and you come away almost feeling like you just ate a big bowl of Cap'n Crunch.

Light beer has fewer calories and fewer carbs.

In a perfect world, I would drink mostly high quality/imported lager beer, the likes of Dab, Becks, Zywiecs, Grolsch, but at the end of the day when I'm winding down, a cold, light, Anheuser Busch product in a glass does me just fine.
My daddy taught me the absolutely best tasting beer is free beer.

I've never really had a "crap beer," and I occasionally drank Dixie when I was in college (it was free). I have had beers that were "just okay," based on my preferences. Some so-called enthusiasts' inability to appreciate inexpensive and refreshing American lagers makes me question whether they are truly enthusiasts, or just poseurs who want to be seen with the "right" product.

The truth is everyone has to develop a taste for the awful stuff.

No thanks! I prefer to spend my money on crap vacations.
You nailed it. Even though I drink beer nothing tastes better than a chocolate milkshake.

Nobody drinks beer because it tastes good they drink it to get a buzz.
Colt 45 or King Cobra gives you a buzz quicker and it tastes the same as all the other crap.

I prefer wheat based beers than ipa,stouts,etc. I like patricks poison, which I believe is an imperial red ale, but I digress.

I like the company full pint and east end in terms of beers local to PA.But since the beers I like isn't national, I tend to stick to what im used to and can drink: bud light, yuengling( yes, the exception of a lager).

ive tried plenty of different souts, ipas, lagers, imperial, you name it and it just hasn't been my thing. I know ill most likely enjoy a wheat based beer over the others so I drink those.

also, they tend to be cheaper (wheat beer) so I save myself money by drinking them and get more for my buck.
