These days though I don't drink like I used to, I tend to favor whiskey over beer. Though when I do drink beer, I like Miller Genuine Draft.

Yeah, I know... I'm not a snob.

draught beer is far superior. Boulevard Pale Ale is my favorite pedestrian draught beer. Avery Mephistopheles if I'm feeling more adventurous. It's been known to cause hallucinations and delusions of grandeur. Much like Free State C3.

Don't really care for the fancy beer. As a friend of mine once called it "cheerleader beer", I prefer a Busch Lite or Bud Light. I do remember drinking Schilitz in high school.

Generally, the darkest brew a bar has on tap. That usually ends up being Guinness or Free State Oatmeal Stout.

A couple of years ago, I had a Belgian beer with a 13% alcohol content that I liked, but I don't remember the name of it. I'd like to find it again. It had a bold flavor.

What's with all the smoke around the town, is there a fire somewhere? Surely they wouldn't have a controlled burn on such a windy day. It's playing havoc with my asthma. Alex, what's the story?

Back atcha jq. I was in an IPA kind of mood when posting, but there are many other fine examples I left out; some of which you captured as well as the Japanese beers noted below by Vertigo.

As Tom T. Hall once sang: "As a matter of fact, I like beer."
