I grew up sippin' PBR from the back of my Daddy's truck. When I see kids in skinny jeans and Ray-bans paying four damn dollars for a bottle of Pabst I cringe.


That being said, Screaming Blue beats Blue Moon on blueberry beer any day of the week.

Hipsters love to be ironic and patronizing toward other people's traditions and cultures. That said, it's never a bottle, they love to feel all interesting and superior while drinking the PBR tall boys.

To a lesser extent they did it to my Lone Star beer here in Texas. When I moved away in '04 you could get a sixer of 16 oz. tallboys for $2.99, I moved back in '09 the price had jumped up to $5.99 a six pack and it seems to be the rage with the ironic crew that is hipsters.

Bless the hipsters: they are a source of much innocent merriment. When I was living in Boston, back in the '70's, Coors beer could only be found in Colorado and a few adjacent states. It was consequently in such demand back east that a Harvard undergrad from Colorado (or thereabouts) drove home for spring break and underwrote the cost by bringing back a case of Coors and selling it ... for several dollars a bottle.

I like either craft beers (anything by Great Lakes Brewing Company) or German beers. I first had beer in Germany as an exchange student my senior year in high school (it was legal there).

So there are only a few hundred certified Cicerones in the world. That is essentially a beer sommelier. I'm one of them.
To respond to the thread's title- yes, beer is food. It is a consumable source of calories and nutrients. That makes it food.
Earlier there was a question regarding bottles versus cans. Glass is chemically inert, making it a better vessel than metal. However, metal does not allow light in at all and completely avoids opportunity for light contamination. Bottled beer versus canned beer flavor variance is most apparent in lighter Pilsner style lagers. If you can find bottled PBR it is a perfect example. Out of a can or tap it is total crap but from a bottle, especially if given a proper pour, it is actually VERY good. Much more so if you can get to have it away from any hipsters.
There are an ever increasing amount of and variety of outstanding craft brews in America and a resurgence of wonderful Real Ales in Britain. Look up the Campaign for Real Ale to find some incredible nods to beer history gaining popularity once more. I'm happy to make recommendations, discuss beer styles, or chat about beer history with anyone interested in learning more about beer. Same goes for wine. I've a bachelors in grape growing and wine making and am taking my sommelier certification exam as soon as it is offered next here in Las Vegas.

This is in no way bragging,but I've seen my Daddy down twelve King Cobras during the span of one SEC championship, he took a little nap when the Vols won, and busted out the other twelve pack from the garage and didn't sleep that weekend. Yeah um, he likes football and beer, who am I to judge.

Lately I'm on this ale shit too,like the crisp stuff, Yuengling is sooooo good with hot wings,peanuts,pork rinds(with hot sauce) and popcorn. It's the best beer to go with pub grub ever.

Beer consumption depends a lot with seasons for me and when weather's get warmer nothing better than a cold beer! I'm pretty picky about brands I drink and mostly go for Leffe or Grimbergen

I will drink any kind of beer, but if I'm paying I prefer anything from the local brewery, Big Rock. Their Honey brown lager is my go-to beer and it's ridiculously good- crisp, sweet and not overly hoppy or bitter (don`t get me wrong- hoppy and bitter can be good but most of the time I prefer a clean finish) . They also make a really nice wheat ale (Grasshopper).

What I like best about beer is that you don't have to worry about whether it goes with whatever you're eating. Beer goes with EVERYTHING. *



*And it's good all by itself, too.

I've decided to try some international beers (not counting German). England & Ireland have some good brews. But I'm planning on getting a bit more exotic than that.

My local liquor store has beer from Africa & Asia. So I'm going to gradually try them. I may never get to visit the actual country, but at least I can drink the beer.

I love me some Shock Tops, and I've heard Guinness is very good, but I've never tried it.

I can't recommend McKenzie's enough if you're in a cider mood.

Guinness is good if you like dark beer. I really enjoy the flavor of dark beers as opposed to light, so I get it sometimes. My favorite is Beck's dark, which is imported from Germany. Great Lakes makes a few good porters. I like the Edmund Fitzgerald and the Eliot Ness (ironically, named after a Prohibition-era enforcer in Chicago). Had to try the beer after I saw the Supernatural episode.
