I am a coffee snob. I am not a beer snob. To me, the important aspects of beer consumption are as follows:

1) Taste. Yes, it must taste good. That is why I tend to gravitate towards microbrews because they just taste so darned good. Plus, it's home made!Would you eat a fresh baked cookie or a Chips Ahoy? One exception: Yuengling. Now tell me, all you Yuengling drinkers out there, tell me true: Is that not a beer with a polished micro brew taste?

2) Label. I am a nut for cool labels.

3) The Vessel. BIG thing with me. Rick Bravo got me into consuming my beer in the wide, frosted, barrel shaped mug so common to European (German and Irish) ale houses. Something about a mug.

4) The holidays bring me an extra tich of joy since beer companies produce their "Beers From Around the World" gift packages. One day I'll sip a Heineken and imagine a stroll through Dutch country. The next day I may drink a Red Stripe and imagine a Jamaican corn rowing my hair by the cobalt blue ocean (Ya Mon! By the way, I have no hair). The next time I might enjoy a Moretti and picture the leaning Tower of Pisa.

5) But, for the beer I grab after a hot day mowing the lawn, I reach for my trusty Old Milwaukee. Why? Because it's the beer Steve McQueen made famous! If it's good enough for the King of Cool, then by gollies it's good enough for a bum like me. At the height of his popularity, McQueen was rumored to have agreed to do stunt motorcycle driving on a low budget film for $200.00 and a case of Old Milwaukee. Yeah, he was that cool.

6) Then there's Guinness...

In order of preferance these days:

Guinness
Red Stripe
Fosters
Michelob (the real stuff, not that low carb yuppie crap)
Corona

After that, I switch to water because as the Python skit says:
"Your American beer is like making love in a cannoe...
It's f&*$#%g close to water"

And as Robert Cray sang, "Don't be afraid of the dark."

Tequilla upgrade

I keep looking for the Tequilla button on Vegas, but it seems to alude me.

You'll find the Tequila button on Adobe Premiere Pro 2.0

(OOooh that was bad! I jumped off the Vegas ship 6 months ago when Sony Media Software told me that Vegas does not support Windows 64 bit operating system. And I was such a loyal user, too.)

Ohhhhh I LOVE to eat Japanese. I spent a year in Okinawa, Japan, courtesy of the US Government and found the food and culture to be exquisite.

Yuengling is probably my favorite beer. Good taste at a reasonable price. Started drinking it in upstate NYS. That is, until they stopped distributing outside of PA for several years. Now it's back and I'm happy I don't have to trek it down to Philly for Yeungling.

I really like Yuengling. The black & tan is best, but it can be a little harder to find. I was introduced to it in upstate New York as well. (Still live there.)

Okay, I confess. It's Holsten Maibock what I drink. It's light and smooth and 7% alcohol. :-)

[QUOTE=Jos Svendsen]OOh

I am not into promotion of different beer brands. I mean - there is no discussion that the local brands here in Denmark are far superior .... So there is no discussion.

Hold up there a minute.
Sure -if you compare your local brews to our "national" brews, you'd be right. But there are a large number of micro breweries that are popping up that are starting to cater to the discriminating videographer/beer consumer.

Case in point- "Angelic Brewing" in Madison Wisoconsin used to make a wicked "Crop-Circle" Wheat brew. And, I myself have brewed a stellar India Pale Ale with a crisp aftertaste, and an unusually high alcohol content.
Thank you.
