I'm not a big beer drinker and I change my mind often about which ones I like.
At the moment I'm fond of making beer shandy with carling Black Label and Homemade Alcoholic Ginger Beer.

If we're out, especially at the authentic Irish pub about 20 miles from home, I like to get a Guinness draught. Hubby refers to it as the beer you chew. H'es a Bass Ale kinda guy while I like the heartier brews. Just make sure it is NOT highly hopped - don't like the bitter.

We rotate our supply based on season - heavier if we have beer in the winter, less heavy (but NEVER "light") in warmer weather. I'm always jonesing for some Great Lakes Brewing Company since we live 600+ miles from back home in OH.

If you're ever in southwest FL head for Fort Myers Beach. There's a bar on the strip called House of Brewz that has a wall of 50 taps. Shot glass samples till you find what you want. They had a milk stout when we were there that was so smooth it was like a milkshake! (Left-Hand Brewing Co.)

You don't like the bitter, but you like Guiness?

Negra Modelo in a frosted mug.

Remove mug from freezer, rub mug rim with a lime wedge and invert into a saucer of sea salt. Drop lime into mug and pour.

Modelo Negro, when sitting by the ocean on a warm Mexican beach, with a squeezed lime wedge dropped into the bottle.... Almost forgot about how good it was!

Don't care for beer, but I know what Shrek likes and I'm good about finding him new ones to try.

When you go for one of Sam Adams tours, you get to taste what ever beer they are making that day. And not just a small sip. But a full glassful. Nice to have Sam in your backyard. Too bad I don't drink.

I don't find Guiness draught bitter. Maybe it's the keg, maybe it's my tastebuds. Or maybe the creaminess masks any bitterness. Might decide different if it was from a bottle.
