When it comes to alcohol I'm pretty set in my ways. I drink beer, whiskey (neat) and the occasional wine with food.

I don't think I've ever had an IPA that I can stomach and Coors is on the other end of the spectrum but also garbage. I have an "every day" beer that is affordable, available and drinkable. That's Budwiser.  Heineken is one of my favorites but costs too much to be my regular stock. I'm sure that there are many beers out there that I can't name or haven't tried that I would like just fine.

I drink a variety of whiskey depending on mood and budget...and there are many that I haven't yet tried. My favorites are scotches but there are several that I've really liked over a range of price points.  A run of the mill Glenlivet 12 makes a good staple. There are more expensive scotches that I like but the "budget" thing does enter into it. Still I can be pretty content with a stock of glen-12.

Cant ignore American whiskey. Bourbon is exclusively American and, again, there are many that I haven't tried but some mentioned Woodford Reserve and I like that. I'm currently working a a bottle of Bulleit bourbon. My wife has been wanting to try some rye so I recently picked up a bottle of Whistlepig when I came across it. I haven't seen any of the Bulleit rye.

I'm sure there are similar whiskies or beers that I couldn't tell apart in a blind taste test they are definitely NOT all the same. A person who isn't familiar and can't tell the difference is making a mistake thinking everyone else is just as dense.

I didn't say anything about moonshine. I used to buy a stock every year (mostly as a novelty) from sources I thought were pretty good but...I have never had a moonshine that was anywhere near as good as any of the commercial whiskies that I drink.

How long do you think the engine will last doing that? Gasket failure within a month or two and engine seizes up.
Or fuel lines leak and burns car burns up

Psssst. Dillwad.

Alcohol that isn't at minimum 90% alcohol, you got problems trying to get it to burn in a car without damaging the engine beyond repair!!!

That would mean 180 Proof and there isn't a "moonshine" made that is that proof.

Nice effort at being a abject MORON, but you need to check your FACTS before you post incoherent drivel like you do.

I would suggest that anyone do the Kentucky Bourbon Trail. You'll tour some of the most famous distilleries in the world. Maker's Mark, Wild Turkey, Jim Beam, Town Branch (which is in my hometown of Lexington where you can also tour horse farms in the horse capital of the world), and Woodford Reserve, to name just a few.

You know when you leave a pot of coffee on all day then realize just before bed that you have to turn off the pot?
Next morning in a haze you get a cup and slosh down that big mouthful of cold, burnt deliciousness...

Put a head on that and it's close.
Obviously there are millions of people who love it.
I was introduced to it in the 1970s when our choices for import beer wasn't too great.

I can drink Guinness all day any day. My wife and I toured St James Gate where they brew it in Dublin 10 years ago and I’ve been a fan ever since.

I gave travel to Ireland some thought, but not sure if I could handle a place where everyone smells like IRISH SPRING DEODERANT SOAP.... :rofl:

Seriously, did Ireland of 2012 look very much like Ye Olde Ireland...or just another overpopulated place with a Starbucks and a McDonalds on every corner...?

Starbucks yes. McDonalds? I may have seen a couple but I don't remember. One nice thing about Ireland and all the other countries in the British Isles, is that there are no billboards trashing up the roadways. 

We've been to Ireland, England, Northern Ireland and Scotland and they are all beautiful and they maintain their heritage. Of course they're socialists but I overlook that when I visit.

Of course. It's all subjective and that also changes over time.

If I was a drinker and **** beer was all that was available, I'd drink it . . .
******* the whole time. :wave:

I was raised by parents who enjoyed cheap [sub prime lagers like...
GOLDEN CROWN
BROWN DERBY
BURGERMEISTER
FALSTAFF ...
Dad worked for McCann Erickson...one of the largest advertising agencies on the West Coast.
They handed him the LUCKY LAGER ACCOUNT to create a nationwide ad campaign for.
Dad hated Lucky Lager, it was unluckily for him one of the few cheap lagers he hated.
It was quite a challenge for him to build that client a strong ad campaign...but he "soldiered on" and gave that client their money's worth. 
Guiness just taste too thin [astringent] and it lacks fizz.
I fairly recently [within the last 5 years] tasted a supercharged version [Guiness Extra..?] and thought that it was an improvement.

Using the food suppy to fuel our vehicles, what could possibly go wrong?
