    Well I know it is a "stupid" Question but I think many people can actually discuss about this very well :)

    everywhere in the World people drink Beer (well at least in most parts of the World) and I for one do not understand why !?!

    I have tried several different kind of Beer like Alt, Black Beer, Pilz, Japanese Beer with and without Sake, Beer with Cola/Fanta, wheat beer with Banana juice .......

    and all of it was awfull :(

    so WHY? how come so many people love it ? (my dad couldn't live without beer)
    Still many people I ask say it doesn't taste good ... at least not in the beginning ... still everyone is drinking it.
    When I was in the Army (lucky only a very short time) I was the only one not drinking so I was some kind of outsider and they allways tried to put some beer into my coke and whatever and thought I would not nice -.-V

    People like to get drunk and do stupid things. I enjoy the taste of Heineken and Budweiser but that's pretty much it. I don't even drink often because of all the carbs and calories in those drinks. I also don't enjoy getting drunk.

    If you drink good beer, you don't drink to get drunk.

    I've never liked beer (except Monaco, basically a panaché (beer, lemon soda) with fruit syrup), but I started to drink some in university. We had a "beer bar" in the campus, so I took the opportunity to try a lot of different beers. That's when I noticed that the main thing that I hated in beer was the bitter taste, which wasn't that strong in white beer and aromatized beers (Desperados, Cardinal lime cut,...). After that I started to get used to the taste, and now I can drink pretty much all kind of beers except Guiness (malt). I also like the chinese beer Tsing Tao, because it's lighter than others and has a little flower taste in it :)

    Nope I don't like the taste, I've tried a huge selection of brands thanks to my dad but it's not my drink.

    Some brands I tried:

    • Heineken
    • Grolsch
    • Jupiler
    And many other brands. Give my some sweet nice liquor and I am happy ^_^

    Try any kind of Canadian beer & problem solved, best in the world. Seriously though it's a social thing for the most part but then there are obviously people who abuse it like alcoholics.

    Because it gets me drunk :P
    But it does taste rather good once you get used to it. I still like the taste of (certain) soda better though.
    However, great beer does taste pretty good.

    I dun like it.
    Tastes horrible and just isn't drinkable.

    I prefer Absinth, Whisky, Limoncello and other hard liquor.

    Beer and wine will get you drunk but liquor is quicker.

    I don't really like beer that much. It has an okay taste, some tasting better than others. Sometimes I do really crave a beer, and it tastes good. But for some reason I vomit if I drink beer (sometimes from only 2 sips).
    So I drink pretty much everything else! :D Cider, wine, whisky, vodka, moonshine, absinth. yumyum

    There are so many different types of beer, you gotta find the one for you, I prefer brown ales and amber ales(very picky on the ambers) my favorite would be Trappistes Rouchefort 6 or 8 (fruity, pricy tho $6+ ec, my dad also loves it, but some people call this "old people" beer). I cannot stand to drink budweiser(or most mass produced beer), if I must I would go with a coors light (but yes, these beers taste like piss I feel).

    Not true I have 1-2 a day if that. I also don't like getting drunk, yet I do like beer.
