Recently, I have not had the urge to drink at all. It's been three weeks since I had a beer. I will usually get a six pack on Friday night and it will last me 3 or 4 days. Anyone else go through those phases?

i ALWAYS have beer in the fridge, i just figured it was part of "the bachelor life" type of thing... i actually drink about 3-4 beers every week, not including pubs or bars... it goes well with other activities (iykwim...)

Enjoying my new favourite beer :)

Lately, mostly beer. Jever, when I can find it; Pilsner, when I can't.

I'm willing to recommend two vodkas straight: Boyd & Blair (American) and Zubrowka (Polish).

Over in the UK, wine fans should check out the larger branches of Marks & Spencer. Their selection used to be a bit conservative, but in recent visits, there were some rather interesting wines, and not all from the usual countries either.

Including some nice Sauvignon Blancs

As well as the usual countries, they have wine from Lebanon (sadly not Chateau Musar), Croatia, Turkey, Slovenia and Greece. I've tried a few and been pleasantly surprised. Croatia is one to watch, according to wine buffs, as the climate and geology is very similar to Tuscany.

I've had some decent Bulgarian wine recently as well...

Reading this thread has made me feel a bit common (I am). I've been so unadventurous when it comes to booze there are probably loads of drinks I'd like but have never tried.

 

Stella Artois is my lager of choice. I'll occasionally dabble with whiskey, though don't drink it often enough to have established a favourite. I've enjoyed some ales and "proper" beers when presented with them, but when left to my own devices I go back to my uninspired ways. Sometimes when I've got home and haven't had my fill I steal my dad's wine (cheap stuff generally). Used to hate red, but after having no alternative on a few occasions it was like a light switch got turned on and suddenly I liked it (that was a really strange experience).

 

I cannot drink cider as it was the first drink I got wasted on and it makes me ill. Similar case with straight vodka. I played a game in my teens where the objective was to chug as much as you could in one go. Not good!

 

Pro tip: Absinthe can lead to midnight fights in graveyards and loss of shoes.

Plenty of different types of beer, not much of a lager fan mostly darker stuff and ales. Some lagers are ok though. Got some nice craft brews here in ontario. Current favourite drink overall is my bottle of Bowmore 18 year old single malt scotch. A good scotch is indeed amazing.

That's one thing I haven't tried yet, scotch. I need to get around to doing that.

I quite like it, its not for everyone. But something that is definitely worth a try. The Glendronach 12 year is quite nice and is slightly on the sweeter side since its aged in sherry casks. Good one to start with.

I don't keep it around anymore because there's no point: it won't last. Almost the same story with Canadian too, I'm afraid. redface.gif I suppose that's my word of warning / encouragement.

Another Glendronach fan! biggrin.gif

I'm really surprised to see beer and liquor as close as they are together in the Poll. I thought beer was going to blow everything out of the water, and I thought wine would be a little higher.

Caipirinha



lime ● sugar ● ‎cachaça ● ice



Or, in the colder months, an Old Fashioned.

bourbon (Knob Creek or Woodford) ● splash of gomme syrup ● dash of bitters


And if it's got to be beer, Fullers ESB - except on those rare, happy occasions when I find myself in the UK, when I will gladly drink any and every hand pulled bitter I can find.
