What are you guys drinking tonight? Why are you drinking? How is it?
Pic relevant. Southern Tier Choklat Stout. Just picked up a bomber and I'm drinking it out of a pint glass.
Flunked out of university and started at a community college this semester taking Information Systems courses. Just got done with midterms and I'm at the top of each of my classes. Taking the Network+ exam after this semester is up. Feeling real fucking good.
Celebrating with some beer.
the Choklat is awesome. Don't drink the Creme Brulee unless you like obnoxiously sweet things. I couldn't finish it.
Currently drinking Elysian Space Dust IPA. The hop bill sounded good, it's not that great, but not bad.
Too much beer hipsterism these days, but I'll go ahead and ask so I can get flamed.
Any suggested beers for a Guinness lover? American beers taste like piss 9 times out of 10 so I have a pretty hard time picking out a beer that isn't my tried and true. Might have to go to World of Beer one of these days and do some testing.
guinness is unique in that it's a very light beer that people think is heavy. So it's not a very good place to start.
What beers have you tried? What flavors do you like/not like?
Got uni tomorrow, so enjoying my last night of freedom. Shits pretty good.
Loose cannon IPA. Tastes kinda dry hopped with tons of floral notes. Barely an IPA in terms of bitterness but certainly the best thing out of Heavy Seas
Founders Breakfast Stout, if it's in your area.
Founders Porter, too. Super tasty.
DuClaw Sweet Baby Jesus and Dirty Lil Freak are Demi-God Tier.
If you're in the PA area, Springhouse makes amazing stouts. They have a PB&J stout that's slamming. The Thin Mint Stout is rad too.
I've tried basically everything I can get my hands on. Being an Amerifag, it's mostly IPA's and other bullshit. I might have to get a real stout one day and see how I like it. IPA's just don't do it for me.
I never cared for IPAs myself, they just seem bitter for the sake of bitter and hoppy for the sake of hoppy. Just out of curiosity, would you recommend anything? I wouldn't mind finding an IPA I liked.

lol thanks for making me feel good abt myself OP
but in all seriousness keep working hard
I'm with you on this. My friends are all IPA people and I can barely get the stuff down. If it doesn't taste like carbonated water, it tastes like piss in a bottle. Any IPA suggestions?
I've been drinking stouts and porters almost exclusively for the past few months because I've gotten so tired of the Hop Arms Race IPA's have started. I don't give a fuck about who can make the best hop syrup. Give me some subtle flavor! Give me some nuance!
IPAs are an acquired taste, some people love them some hate them. If you hate the bitterness, check out some east-coast style ones; they use more fruity hops instead of going for the whole "licking a pine tree" thing the west-coast ones do.
But anyway, I'd suggest just finding a store that does a mix-a-six pack thing and checking out a bunch of different styles until you find something you like

Drinking Sam Adams boston lager and some captain morgan's rum.
I've been doing that. I'm an east coaster and Publix supermarkets do them for cheap. I've found some ones I can stomach but nothing that excites me sexually like the sight of the OP.
Shout out to all my Stout niggas
It's in my top 5 of mass market beers.
Bonus: if you can get a hold of this shit, do it. It is ridiculously good.
Year? As in school? Should have graduated in 2012. MFW.
PA. USA. Got it through a monetary transaction with a beer store clerk.
saisons are so fucking good and this one is the best at 8%
NY nice. 3 philosphers for me.
