If you dont like 60 min you should stay away from most IPAs unless they're super well balanced. Try another style of beer. Hoppy/bitter isn't something everyone loves.

you try the 120min ipa sonny?

lol @ that comment about Blue Moon, somewhat true IMO but I ain't gonna hate.

Anyways, I just copped these today. I have tried all but the Three Philosophers. I've heard a lot of good things about it, however Sonny told me that the cherry flavor threw him off and he wasn't that fond of it. I hope it's not overly sweet because I'm not that fond of beers like that. I tried beer that had passion fruit in it and it gave me a horrible stomach ache as well as diarrhea.

Haha being a 18 year old college student hasn't afforded me many opportunities to try good beer. I drink what I can find

That being said, I'm open for some recommendations

Was slightly joking/being a dick. I drink Blue Moon at family gatherings and shit cuz it's better than Bud Lite and Coors but I don't go out my way to purchase it. As for recommendations, this thread is full of them. Some beers may be an acquired taste. You just gotta try different beer styles like IPA's, stouts, etc. When I was 18 I hated dark beers, now it's usually what I drink, although with the hot ass weather I can't drink dark shit all the time, gotta go for some lighter stuff.
Jul 26, 2011 @ 05:53
agreed, i was the same way at 18 nasty. once you turn 21 it'll be easier to check out various beers.

asking your dad if he wants to kick back with a 12 or 6 of something nice from bevmo or another local liquor store might be a good way to start though. that's how i started getting into different brews.

To be honest craft brewing has always been on the rise in popularity and it's becoming even more popular in the recent years. Even 7-11 is catching on. The one near me stocks plenty of Sierra Nevada, some Stone, and a few others.
Jul 26, 2011 @ 15:03
No worries guys I didn't take offense to anything said.

I had some dark beer the other night, it was so gross haha. I'm sticking to the light stuff. I'm still dying to try a heineken though
Jul 26, 2011 @ 15:33
When I was your age and I didn't like dark beers but I wanted to expand my horizon instead of always ordering generic beers, I tried Hefeweizen. It's a wheat beer and pretty good. Try some of that, you'll probably like it
Jul 26, 2011 @ 19:41
I'm 18 and I started trying different beers just this year. When I was like 15 and shit I drank nothing but Budweiser, bud light and shit after a while I got tired of the same taste. Heineken was always my favorite but then I started drinking Dos Equis, if you can get your hands on some St. Pauli Girl it's pretty good too.

Never heard of an "extra" IPA. i assume its like a double IPA / imperial IPA?
Jul 27, 2011 @ 02:57
^ double Indian Pale Ale which usually have alcohol content above 7% by volume & it tastes VERY HOPPY and BITTER. We had to drink it down with the bite of chili fries and burgers lolol.

im thinking of trying Duvel next time :D It has over 9% alcohol content

yeah double IPA is not for me. ps i tried New belgium's Ranger IPA. Did NOT like it at all

Good fucking choice.

I couldn't stand beer until I tried Sierra. one and a half Torpedoes and I'm talking shit to EVERYONE. The friendly kind of shit talk though. smokeyface

If no one's mentioned it yet try Old Foghorn. Nowhere near as stout/bitter as Torpedo. Smooth citrus wash that leaves a pine aftertaste. Or something like that.



There's another one that my beer connoisseur friend has me hooked on, I'll throw it up later.
