I forgot to respond to this till now and I hate to jump into a catfight, but this bothers me:
Mark, get a sense of humor. Aspiring indie talkalot filmmakers and watering hole patrons don't mix. You missed the whole point. If your enthusiasm for the hops quality of the lastest oregan born microbrew overshadows your ability to kick back and toss down some suds with some good buddies who are throwing some effort into your ill-fated project, then you don't know jack. This isn't the napa valley point system of the highest rated brew. It's a glory story thread of the merits of mixing inflamable liquids with diy techno art.
I don't mean for this to be a personal attack, it's not fair amongst people who haven't met each other. You wouldn't have set me off if you hadn't included "Barf" and "sooo amateur" in your feedback. But five will get you twenty that you have never in your life started "the day with a beer and a shot."

Slightly edited so as not to appear like one. Keep it cool, folks!

*Sigh*

Easy there, killer. My comments were made with tongue firmly planted in cheek and a side of sarcasm. Apparently, my humor is a bit obscure.

The Long Trail is a hiking trail located in Vermont. Long Trail Ale is good stuff. If you can get some, check it out. It's very hoppy and chewy. I'll understand if you're not partial to that kind of beer.

I have started the day with a beer and a shot, but not when I'm working. It was a double entendre, having a beer while getting the first shot of the day, hence the beer and a shot. There have been those shoots where I wish I were drunk, because it eases the pain.

I have worked for free/beer, but only for a few good friends, who are great people, great directors and who repay the favor by getting me paying gigs. I do it because I believe in them.

I drank part of a Bud 40 and I almost puked it tasted so bad, but I finished it anyway.

I make my living as a DP and Gaffer here in New York and often utilize my innate ability to kick back and enjoy a brewski.

Cheers.

I've had several glasses of wine with a friend.

Just trying to clarify things.

Guys, you haven't had beer until you drank Belgium beers :) And I ain't even
from that country. But whatta you know, it does border Holland. Ah.... perhaps
I need to pour myself one tonight.

Cheers!

Fair enough, my apologies for getting too worked up. At the end of the day, there shouldn't be too much room for arguing over someone else's brew choice. Again, my bad.

I'm starting to attempt a semi-switch to wine for health reasons (too many family members have heart problems), but I'll still kick back with a cold brew every now and then.

I believe it is just the nature of a good videographer to be picky. Of course we're going to choose "difficult" beer over Miller and Budweiser. Although it could be a guy thing, too. I brought Grolsch to a screening last night, while a female videographer brought Miller High Life.

What do you think of that (Dutch!) beer Grolsch? Lot of people seem to like
it (being sold all over the world), don't really like it myself. Do drink it some-
times though.

Heath: I'm on the (red) wine every once in a while as well

to heath: I recently read and article in a health journal (interesting reading when you're waiting on new tires!) that said it's not the wine that's healthy, it's the alcohol all together! They suggested 1 drink per day to reduce the risk of heart problems. Also, red wine is made from the grape peel, as opposed to only the center (in white wine), and the peel is the healthiest portion.

My favorite beer is Corona, with a good, fresh lime..... mmm. I also like Newcastle for a dark beer, just slightly sweet with an excellent flavor. My favorite red wine is any good full-bodied Merlot.

Some of my most "creative creations" have come from being slightly inhebriated! I like a good drink of Stoli Vodka (sometimes with a Red Bull to chase), and for a change, a Gin & Tonic or a Jack & Coke really get the creativity going.....

As Dave Matthews says... Drink and be merry

Yeah, well, enough of anything is bad--I've read about people who overdo it with vitamins and have problems.

Weirdest drink I've tried is the Black Tooth Grin apparently loved by the metal band Pantera. A little bit of Coca Cola on top of a shot of Crown.

If you want to try a great Mexican beer pick up a Negra Modelo some time.
