    • Exactly. It was the extreme bitterness of the several IPAs I'd tried that turned me off to it. And like you say, the fact that 70% of what you find out there in the stores is in that one specific style is really annoying. I know they can't literally stock everything, but come on man. But just like you & Surge, I'll drink an IPA if you hand me one. But when I'm headed out to the store to buy stuff to drink at home on my own I'm basically gonna be looking for barrel aged stouts and porters. Harder to find in recent years, I seem to only be able to find the same handful of options whereas 5 or more years ago there seemed to be a plethora of options in that barrel aged niche. I've been assuming that part of my inability to find variety had to do with the fact that I've moved out to a more rural area now where it seems the local farmers and redneck tradesmen are perfectly happy drinking the cheapo major brand piss water. Nothing else to add other than everything I've ever tried from Stone brewery has always been ass afaic. That's just how business works though, any moderately successful small town brewery will get bought out by the majors sooner or later, it's inevitable.   If you just don't like beer, (and there's nothing wrong with someone not liking beer) then why join in on the beer convo? We get it dude, you've made your point. You don't like or drink beer anymore. OK great, thanks for stopping by with that informative PSA.
    • Make all beer taste like shit seems closer to the truth.  
    • Having problems with my computer lately it is a 20 year old IMAC, that is my excuse and I am sticking with it  Weihenstephan is without a doubt one of the best beers I have ever tasted about $6 a bottle here but worth it. That being said I try to avoid beer as much as possible and stick to clear alcohol when I drink, I lift weights and don't need those estrogen bombs in my system moobs and dickey do's are the last thing I want to be rockin. Vodka straight up with lime and soda water or Single Malt Scotch neat, vodka martini's and Black Russians are tasty too 🤘
