Ever periodically lose interest in beer?

  1. Yeah, I have had the same thing happen many times. It usually last about 4-6 weeks during the summer when I go back to drinking lighter beers. All it takes is a beer fest to get me back in the swing, but it does happen. Sometimes I do so much reading about beer, searching for beers, etc, that it feels like work and then I know I need to cool it to keep my passion healthy and alive.

    Yeah, who doesn't love a good vodka, gin, whisky, tequila or rum based cocktail from time to time. Man cannot live by beer alone.

    No, but during the winter my bourbon and rye intake increases, at the cost of drinking less beer.

    That said, I just left a massive beer store filled with gems and simply walked out with a 4 pack of 2011 Founders Imperial...which must indicate that I'm a little bored. Feel like I've had my winter fill already and I'm longing for Spring maibocks.

    I haven't lost interest in beer. But I have lost interest in acquiring expensive bottles.

    Not since I started drinking good beer. I drank a lot of AAL beers from 16-21, then I didn't drink at all for three or four year. It wasn't a conscious decision I just would prefer to smoke some weed. Then I drank a newcastle at a party and though "hey! This is pretty good!".i never really like beer when I was a kid, I just wanted to get drunk. From there I started seeking out darker beers, and heffewiezens. That gradually led me to tryin anything.

    Newcastle is not a go to for me anymore, but when I go out with friends, sometimes that's the best thing available at dives and restaurants, so that's what I get. And to be truthful, I still enjoy the taste of that beer!

    I'm in the same boat, i like dipa's but all the carbs are getting to my scale. So i've toned it down and am reenergized on german hefeweizens. Forgot how much i appreciate the hefe's.
