Keystone Light for life !!!

I mostly drink wine or beer. The only difference is now I drink more expensive wine and beer.

Most domestic beers not labelled as IPAs are swill. Yuengling was my favorite until, with Budweiser's help, it got mass-produced. Another one ruined by mass-production is Landshark

JD said...

I used to not drink at all. Now I drink everything but gin.

Zilla3 said...

I used to love Midori Sours. But I don't really drink. If I do, it'll probably be a White Russian.

Several times.

When I was just of age, screwdrivers were my favorite.

When I was stationed in Germany, at first wine was my favorite. Then it switched to beer when I realized German beer wasn't the same as our mass produced beers of the time.

For a very short time, I loved tequila.

Then I went dry for a while.

Then I started liking wine again.

And now, I mostly like IPA.

Mooney said...

Like mostly everyone, I would drink whatever for the buzz. Now it’s a proper old fashioned.

J said...

As a knucklehead young guy in Chicago I remember favoriting one American beer for a while, say local Old Style, and finding others completely undrinkable. Then I'd switch to Budweiser or Miller or even nasty Olympia and like it just as well, now hating the one I liked before. I guess your palate gets trained.

Nowadays it's Sancerre.

Was milk, now ice cold Red Bull

Started with Pink Zinfandel and Coors light (ugh)... most recently I liked Vodka Tonics (Gray Goose or Tito's) and the only beer I like is Guinness and I can't drink wine anymore. Now I barely drink as the effects are not worth it as I feel achy from even one glass of wine. I stick to water, iced tea or coke.

Brayson87 said...

Feel like I used to prefer party mixed drinks but nowadays it's either good vodka or plain beer.

MountainMama said...

High School parties it was sloe gin and OJ, or a sloe screw, then I went to beer and shots and that is pretty much my go to. I do love a Tito's Bloody, very spicy, with a pickle spear. I also enjoy a nice Pinot Noir.

momo said...

I didn't drink for more than 20 years and then well I turned fifty and night sweats and mood swings and the like made me go back to beer. It's got estrogen or some shit that eases symptoms. I like Guinness in the winter and Hi Life the rest of the time. I don't like IPAs. They give me a headache and make me want to go to sleep. Once in a while I like a shot of Jameson, or if it's cold out, more than a shot. ALSO LOVE SAZERAC. OMG so good in coffee.

Farmgirl said...

Was: Coffee, light and sweet
Now: Coffee, black

Troy Dyer said...

When ya boy Troy was a younger man, it was “PBR me ASAP”, then when I moved back to the Midwest, I liked to imbibe with a can of Hamm’s.

Middle aged Troy can’t do too much beer so a glass of whiskey neat is a go to, but usually my better half and I stick to wine.

AlleyKat said...

Thanks for the tip momo!

AlleyKat said...

Builders...2x Yorkshire teabags and a spot of semi skimmed, perfect!

WickedBee said...

I used to like Smirnoff Ice until one day it felt like battery acid in my stomach.
Now I like gin (Bees Knees made with lemon and my own honey) and whiskey neat or with lemonade.

AListDiva said...

I have always Bud light gal, but now I also enjoy Michelob Ultra or a Stella. My favorite mixed drink go to has always been rum and OJ though.

herbert arnold said...

i used to drink beer mostly sometimes mixed drinks but now its arrowhead mountain spring water. i dont drink alcohol anymore, just got tired of it.

LaurenMaye said...

@ Farmgirl, Yes!! Also love home made lemonade and root beer :)

gabes_human said...

Before it was legal for me to drink it was a cold Lone Star or Annie Green Sorings Country Cherry. Now that I’m older and wiser it’s a neat single malt Scotch Roman aged Medco.

gabes_human said...

Darn autocorrect-not Roman -or a nice Medoc

Flashy Vic said...

Beer? Any lager, I'm not fussy anything wet and alcoholic...except Stella, which tastes of an Arab's jockstrap. And Harp which is a crime against humanity.

And I like my whiskey the way I like a seventies porn star. just get my lips round a nice Black Bush. I'm patriotic.

Aquagirl said...

I’m a total IPA girl 👧🍺!

Aquagirl said...

Unfortunately one of my nephews just got deployed to the Middle East. VERY limited communication, but yesterday I got a pic of him on a beach with someone riding a camel behind him. Under the camel is an empty bottle of water & a half-empty bottle of beer. My sister asked if I thought they were his, and I said of course. She asked me if I’d drink the rest of a beer that a camel walked over, and I said no, but people in America do it everyday—they drink Budweiser!

La Morena said...

God my favorite in my early 20 and beyond was wine coolers . Remember Matilda Bay?? Today a nice hot cup o tea with lemon or a Dr Pepper will do just fine .

La Morena said...

@J!! I’m from Chicago a south side girl !!

Unknown said...

Use to be beer beer beer but now it’s beer and Negronis

Vince said...

I got sober so yeah.

OKay said...

It's changed tons. My very first bevvie of choice was vodka and OJ back in the day. It's now red wine, but there have been a LOT of steps in between.

DarylsBigFan said...


Too many personal questions.
Creepy.

Annie578 said...

Diet Coke pour toujours!

Zilla3 said...

Actually, amaretto and OJ is pretty damn tasty.

Ann said...

@Zilla3 I love Disaronno amaretto. Whether a stone sour (like yours) or a plain amaretto sour. I don't do much drinking today but the occasional cold beer with pizza or an amaretto sour. I also love Appleton rum and coke. As a young kid I'd drink anything. I don't know how I avoided becoming an alcoholic but I'm grateful I outgrew the need to drink myself to passing out.

Nicunta said...

I've always been a whiskey girl. Seven and seven when I was younger; now I like Southern Comfort or a whiskey sour.

MissDavie said...

When I was young I thought both wine and scotch were undrinkable. Older me thinks they are both delicious.

GentleBreeze said...

Beer, wine, vodka.

I used to drink scotch mixed with apple cider. Now I drink vodka neat.

Mango said...

I used to order White Russians or from frou-frou drinks like pina coladas. Now it’s Pinot noir (I live in wine country), vodka soda, or maybe a Heineken with a sandwich or a margarita rocks (with salt!) with Mexican food. Cheers! 🍷

momo said...

Oh my first favorite in high school was Jack Daniels in a Coke Slurpee. OMG So good, such a bad headache. We used to make them in the theatre in this place we went to watch foreign films on the weekend. Shocking, actually, Memphis had a theater that did foreign films for a dollar. I remember seeing Luna one afternoon. YIKES wasn't expecting that!

Count Jerkula said...

I stopped drinking Becks after Lucas showed me an article describing their buy out by InBev and how it was no longer made in Germany or with German hops.

I am no music nerd turned coffee nerd turned beer nerd. I am not paying premium prices for domestic beer. I am almost 100% on Yuengling now.

I remember in the 90s when Yuengling was getting a foothold in NJ and some bars had it on the import list. Arguing with waiters & bartenders. "Imported from fuckin Pennsylvania? GTFOH w/ that price. Stuff is cheaper by the keg than Bud."

memyselfandi said...

Started out as Zima. Then cranberry/vodka or tequila sunrise. Now I'm more into craft beer and sweet wines.

Goodau said...

It used to be good wines especially champers. Then I discovered the glorious world of straight, single malt whisky, sipped. The big, bold, smoky, peaty ones. Now my medications do not play well with alcohol so I allow myself a very occasional light pear cider. Usually it's cold water or straight, black coffee.

luna said...
