I dont l like beer ...

Before you ask me "Boy, you some kind of faggot?". My preferred drink is neat bourbon so dont doubt my manhood. I just dont like the taste of beer unless I am already pretty wasted haha. Any suggestions on some craft beers to try to maybe branch out? Yes I realize this could go poorly.

What kind of beer have you tried, and of those that you've tried, which did you hate the least? Maybe we can figure something out for you.

Everyone is just going to tell you to try whatever their favorite beer is, and most of them probably suck. Just go to the store and buy beers of a few varieties and see what you like, then go back and buy more beers of the variety you liked.

I mostly have just tried what ever is available at parties, Bud Light, Busch Light, etc etc . Probably the best two in the light beer genre I have had is Yuengling and Stella.

Where does one get the actual European beers? Like I said earlier in the thread I believe the imports are changed to fit American tastes so they sell better. I would like to has a taste of the regular stuff. I could be wrong on that but let me know.

Got any pubs around you that have the samplers? One restaurant that we love to go to has "Three Little Beers". Every few days , the owner picks 3 new beers and serves them in 6 oz glasses (appropriate to the beer type) on a rectangular plate. Its a great way to introduce yourself to different beers without knowing what to try, served in a full size glass, etc.

Try something dark, for a starter, perhaps a nice Porter, then maybe move on to Stout, if you like the darker beers.
Link Posted: 12/13/2013 11:38:15 AM EST
Maybe something with a higher alcohol content like a dopplebock?
Something with less hops?

Cool. I always like to recommend local beers, if I can. And in your case, I can.

Check out Blackbeard the Imperial Stout, from COAST Brewing Company. It's a seasonal (winter) and you should be able to get it, especially if you're anywhere near Charleston.

I do know a good bar near here with over 100 varieties of beer so I can swing by and try a bunch at some point. Anything from a can or long neck that is readily accessible that is worth a shot or are those to be steered clear of?

One neat thing you can do, is see if that bar has a "World Tour" kind of thing. Bars that have that many beers available often do. You sign up, and try a new beer every day (or whenever). Then you get some kind of prize if you complete them all. There's a popular place here that gives you a cool jacket if you complete theirs (it's like 300 different beers, or some shit like that). One of my coworkers did it.

Don't worry about whether it comes in a can, or a bottle, or is on tap, etc. It means nothing, when you're talking about really good craft beer.

Listen to Sub, he know what he is talking about. As an IPA fan I have to say that you need to give them a try. I just moved to NC and the local brewery in the little town I live in has a fairly good one. The brewery is called Aviator, I don't know how far their distribution is. But I'd say look for an IPA from Flyingdog, Snakedog is good it's about 7%, Raging Bitch is better and generally most people like it, 8.3% and a lot of my friends say it is their favorite, if you are brave try the double dog, it is 11.5% but some people think it is a bit much. Or try Dogfish Head, Either the 60 minute, it is 6% and smooth and mild or the 90 minute, it is 9% and has a bit more flavor, but is too much for some. A good starter IPA would be Sierra Nevada Torpedo. It is on the cheaper side but still good flavor and a little stronger that what you are used to.

Yeah trust me, haha, I will need to travel somewhere to pick up some good ones, but Bi-Lo might have some of the other brands you might suggest that are more mass produced.

Stay away from clear or green bottles. Other than that you are good to go. Most people prefer bottles, but cans are actually better for the beer

But the neckbeards really are drinking slightly hoppy-flavored water. Its like wanting a burger and going to McDonalds. Im not dumping on McDonalds because I want to establish burger dominance (sans the peeing) over my fellow carnivores, its simply because I want a real burger and not some 'patty' that is only slightly bigger than some of the change in my pocket.

Well, I'm not going to suggest anything "mass produced".

Craft beers with (more or less) nationwide distribution you might want to check out, include Stone, Dogfish Head, Great Divide, Flying Dog, Southern Tier, and Russian River. These breweries make a lot of different styles, and all of them tend to be decent examples of those styles.

And if all else fails, Samuel Adams is freaking everywhere. Just stay away from their gimmicky holiday/fruity/bullshit beers. Stick with the standards.

Generally I have started beer haters off with maltier or sweeter beers, and avoided the ultra hoppy IPAs.

Belgian white beer (Blue Moon is one example of a macro version) and hefeweizens (wheat beers) like Spaten Franziskaner are a good start if you like a fruitier, less bitter beer with some good flavor.

Brown ales (Newcastle, etc.) are also a good intro for medium-dark with low bitterness.

Porters are dark and thick, much like a stout but not as bitter.

When you feel like venturing into the more hoppier brews, try like hell to find one fresh and on tap, since so many bottled IPAs are just burnt-rubber bitter without some of the more subtle and interesting floral notes from the hops.
Link Posted: 12/13/2013 12:09:52 PM EST
There are simply too many variations of beer to possibly lump ALL of it nto the same "I hate beer" statement as Miller Lite, Bud Light, Coors Light, etc.

It's like saying "I hate liquor" after drinking some really shitty tequila.

It sounds to me like you just hate light beer.

I dislike IPA, tastes like drinking grandma's perfume.

I'll second the idea of trying porters and stouts though. I'll take a nice roast over ridiculous amounts of hops any day.
