This is exclusive to just beer. What brands, what times, with who, what memories? Any beers that aren't around much anymore that you used to like?
On principle, I enjoy a lot of working class old man type beers. I'm not sure why this is a "principle" of mine, but a lot of my memories from being a kid are of my grandpa or my dad drinking old beers like Schlitz, Old Style, PBR, and Hamms, and I dunno, I think I always thought when I would become an adult if I drank beer I would drink the kind of beer they did.
If I buy beer at the store and I just want beer and not much else matters, I'll buy Old Style. It's the beer of choice of my Pap, and it's also the beer of a true cubs fan, haha. I also enjoy PBR and other beers of that type. I get a lot of flak from my peers about drinking those kind of beers, but I dunno, I think they taste good and they're cheap.
My dad used to deliver beer like Hamms, Old Milwaukee, Schlitz, and the like before I was born. That stuff is hard to find anymore, but there is a dive bar in Iowa City that still sells Hamms, so whenever my dad comes up to visit we go there and have a can of Hamms together...it's kind of nice to share things like that with my dad, we don't have moments like that that often so I'll take them when I can get them, even if it involves beer.
Another cheap beer i drink is Busch Light, but thats more of a necessity than by choice. Every tuesday night myself and a few other mass comm graduate students go out after class to a place in downtown Iowa City called Sam's Pizza...they have 50 cent pints of busch light! And we all sit down together and drink and talk about mass communication, haha.
But I have palet for decent beer as well too. If i'm in the mood for "good" beer, I'll buy a 6 pack of Warsteiner, Blue Moon, Boulevard, Harp or Leinenkugels Honey Weiss. I also really enjoy Guinness. I visited the ole brewery @ St. James Gate in Dublin in 2004.
I generally enjoy drinking beer, and I try to experience as many different beers as possible.
now who's next!?
