I'm also at a loss with things like Whisky, scotch, cointreau, brandy etc. -The flavour in those is pretty much akin to going to see a heavy metal band live and standing right in front of the speakers- no sound, just a screaming decibel drill paired with a body-reverberating rhythmic thud. Perhaps that's the reason they're usually paired with cigars?

one of my favorite drinks is whiskey and water , but i also like cigars and putting my head in the amplifier and standing very close to speeding freight trains .

I'm desperately ignorant about beer in general.

The first time I went out with my cousin (who works at a family owned brewery) she ordered me a glass and declared, “This is an excellent wheat beer! If you don't like this, you're nuts!” After one uninspiring swill, I declared it tasted like tortilla-chip flavored soda that had turned. I guess I'm nuts.

In my opinion it's safe to assume beer gained it's original popularity from availabilty and cost efficiency, because I certainly can't be convinced they made it for the taste. Point in fact - people just want to get drunk for cheap.

When I worked as a guard in a prison, we found a batch of hooch made from raisins, lime juice (and a few things we couldn't identify) after an entire bunkhouse got drunk and rowdy one night. They made the batch in a toilet.

I couldn't help but think at the time that it probably tasted better than Miller regardless.
