I don't like beer at all.  And I'm not too keen on hard liquors either.

I did develop a taste for wine in the past years.  Especially some great stuff from Chile.

I also have the occasional (read frequent) Smirnoff Ice.  And I really enjoy some fine liqueurs from time to time like Amarula, Baileys, Tia Maria and Amaretto.

I like beer. But it makes me fat. So I stick with whisky, or tequila.., or rum, or vodka, or gi- :O

I read that a Chilean cabernet has more antioxidants than any other. Which is why Chilean winos never get cancer.  :laugh:

But I really can't drink any of those malt liquors, like Smirnoff Ice, or Zima, or whatever. Everytime I've had one, it twisted my guts up into a such knot. Never again.

I believe the most appropriate beers/ales for Agent would be those brewed by Unibroue :p

Seriously, they're in Quebec, and they're great - La Fin Du Monde ("The End of the World") is really tasty, and it's 9% ABV.  Maudite is also quite tasty.  Haven't tried any of their other varieties yet.

Basically, with alcohols, there are several things to consider:

Beer/Ale:
- fresher is tastier, so if you can find a local brew, it will almost always taste better than something imported/trucked in.  The exception to this is any large-scale domestic American beer (Bud, Miller, Coors, etc) - you can live in the brewery and it will still taste bad.
- if you like something a little sweeter and less "beer-like", you can either try a fruit beer - the Belgian-style "lambic" beers come in a variety of flavours, commonly cherry, raspberry, and strawberry.  Also on the sweeter side are dark ales and German "festbock" beers (I've recently taken a liking to Holsten Festbock - pretty tasty, and the only Festbock I've seen around these parts).
- avoid any beers by "Faxe" (Danish, I think).  They all taste like their secret ingredient is dead skunk.
- otherwise, beers/ales have been brewed for centuries if not millenia (apparently Egyptian slaves were fed strong beer to both nourish them and keep them pacified, and some have said the Sumerians wrote down beer recipes that archeologists have uncovered).  There are many, many varieties - you can likely find 1 or 2 you like.  Experimenting is half the fun :)

Wines:
- find out if you're adversely affected by the tannins in red wine - some people are sensitive to them and get large headaches from it.  If so, you'll have to stick with white, which limits your options.
- I'm a fan of red.  I've found that a cabernet-merlot blend is generally a good overall choice - many producers in many countries make them, and they seem to be hard to screw up, and are generally middle-of-the-road in terms of sweetness and overall acidity.
- if you can't find cab-merlot, I've found a safe bet is an Australian cabernet sauvignon from Lindeman's - reasonably priced, consistent quality.
- in general, wines from Australia and Chile are safe bets and seem to be decent quality for a decent price (both have premium offerings now as well - some of the Masi wines are up there, but are extremely good)

Hard liquor:
- you'll have to see what you like.  Personally, I'm a fan of amber/dark rum (Havana Club is my current favourite brand, but it's a Cuban import, which I doubt is available in the US).  I'm not a fan of whiskey or Scotch (don't like the smokey flavour). I also enjoy good vodka - we recently started to get "Slava" brand 4x distilled from the Ukraine - very, very smooth (the same distillery makes a 3x distilled product called "Zirka", which is also very good, but you can tell it's not quite as smooth).
- in terms of mixed drinks, I usually drink a "Cuba Libre" (rum, coke, and a lime) or a "Screwdriver" (vodka and orange juice). Otherwise, not a fan of a lot of the fancy cocktails.

Also, incidentally, I've had Prairie Fires and I have to say, if you're at all into hot food I find them pretty light-weight.

Anyway, have fun :)

I should print some of this stuff out. :p

As for the 'prairie fires,' I do like spicy food, and I can take the heat, but my stomach can't.  Even putting some hot sauce on food will mess me up (I still do), so I can't even imagine drinking it straight. :O

Screwdrivers are good.

Also, while were making a list of advice, stay far, far away from sashimi (or any kind of sushi for that matter) if your planning on drinking later.

Lastly, I absolutely love hot foods, hot sauces and hot spices, so that's why I'm so interested in the Prairie Fire thing. Whenever some kid brings a bottle of Dave's Insanity Sauce or anything like it too school, I always own classmates in the "see who can handle the most hotsauce" comps. And yes, we do actually have those occasionally :p

The one major type of beer I haven't tried yet is a buckwheat beer (which, incidentally, is gluten-free).  I see my local liquor store is carrying one brand of it now, and I'm curious - I like roasted buckwheat quite a bit (normally called "kasha" in various cultures), so I'm curious how the taste compares.

Anyone here tried one?

Do you also have 'ride hard' comps?  :p


Cobalt: I had Redrock a little while ago, can't remember if i liked it or not.

Probably didn't.  :D
