Social drinking; in order of preference:
Other: Rethink my past-life choices because I'm obviously in hell
I'm always down for a old fashioned or G&T
I usually go with water but depending on what I'm eating maybe a Blue Moon or Heineken.
It's a toss up. Sometimes I'll go with water, other times I'll go for the Leinies/Sam Adams/Blue Moon seasonal if I have to. The only time I'll touch a Bud (or something equivalent) is at a sporting event or strip club, where I feel drinking is pretty much mandatory. Fortunately the professional stadiums in Detroit (and a lot of places around here, it seems) are starting to expand their beer offerings to microbrews.
If im out at a bar late and dont find craft there (like if theres nothing interesting on at the Whiskey in Durham), in this order:
1) ask the bartender to chill the entire bottle of Sambuca Black or White, and pour over ice with a splash of water
2) Galliano on the rocks
3) Tangueray/Bombay Sapphire and Tonic
4) Woodford or Jefferson's Rye neat
5) Vanilla Coke
Usually I will only have water. If I feel like spending money with a decent meal then I will drink some wine.
Bourbon. But I'm kind of picky about that, too, with Makers Mark about the lowest I will go on quality bourbons. If they only have whiskey, I'll usually go with a cabernet, if available and fitting for the meal. Otherwise, water.
I love Beer!
Pabst or Wild Turkey 101 will do just fine.
Bourbon straight or a Hendricks and Tonic.
Had some spicy crawfish the other night and washed them down with Coors Light.
My first twist off cap in a long, long, long long long long time!
Hit the spot!
Note: it was that or sorry ass Budweiser!
Wine or gin straight.
This always seems to be an issue on almost all the public golf courses around here and most of the private ones. I usually give in and go Bud, or even Bud Select. Sometimes they got Hienie but they are almost always skunked. Occasional Dos Equis, I'm good if they got that.
Vodka Lemonade fills in well at the private courses (publics usually don't have liquor).
It would depend on if I have to pay for it, or if it's free at a party.
If I have to pay, i would go with nothing.
If it's free I would imbibe something else.
Oh and don't get me started on golf courses I would rather die than drink at a golf course.
If you play golf like me you have to drink to forget your score. Course double digit numbers are beyond my education, so double par is max score. Thats why I usually only buy 4's and 6ers.
You seem like a white russian type of dude...
Initially thought about writing that, but it felt so wrong.
Bourbon on the stones.
If I want something sweet, Jack Daniels with a quick shot of ginger ale.
Or, if the bar/restaurant has some interesting cocktails, I may go that direction.
No problem drinking BMC. I Enjoy craft beer as much as the next guy, but can have a good time drinking BMC as well. Cowboy up sissy boys!
Well if I am going somewhere that doesnt have craft beer and my intention is to have a drink then its probably because they have specials for $1 Buds or 1/2 price mixed drinks or something, and Im fine with those if it means I get drunk for under $10. Guess Ill go with it depends on the situation.
In the case of this concert venue where i know its all overpriced bmc. prefunk on good stuff and have like one shitty beer the entire night to tide over and focus on the music!
Before beer, I was a single-malt Scotch guy - so that'd be my go-to drink.
I also really enjoy anejo tequila (neat, of course ), and gin - ah, yes, gin - in a martini or straight, ice cold gin is oh-so good...
I invested in a case of these babies for the golf bag. Nice stubby size tucks inside and can be consumed inconspicuously. Otherwise....I intentional shank one into the woods and pop one down unseen. Fore!
Scotch, cognac, brandy, mixed cocktails, macro beers ill drink it all.
Politely ask for water honestly
bourbonnnnnnnnnnnn. or g&t's if they have nice gin.
Bourbon and Sierra Mist.
I really don't drink other kinds of alcohol, so I would probably get a soda or iced tea.
Jamos, Gin and Tonics or BMC, no problem with any of it. Have to be cost effective
eh, since Dos XX isn't considered a craft beer... i'll typically just have one of those if i'm at a place with a limited beer selection.
Jack with 1 rock
I love "craft" bourbon almost as much as craft beer. If they can make a good old fashioned, I'll order that over an OK craft beer.
Hard liquor, and the best of all possible worlds would be vodka and a craft brewed root beer-draft or bottled. I look to White/Black Russians next, and if neither of those are forthcoming I will rarely remain in that place. A few times the bartender brought me something with lemon or apple that rocked my night, some Old Fashioneds kept me seated, but that is rare mostly because I bailed not wanting to stick around to see what I might be subjected to next - Karaoke? Oh the Humanity!
Nice, Ive snuck duvel into bars before . Haven't done it lately tho!
That's what i do too. I realy enjoy wine but just can't see myself drinking it at a bar.
I'll drink whatever beer they have but I sure will bitch about it.
all of the above.
if i'm feeling like enjoying a particular style or brew and it isn't available, i'll usually just get water or tea. If i'm at a cookout and it's hot out I'll enjoy a corona or some dos equis. Similarly, if i'm at a small dive bar with 4 taps, the best of which is Amber Bock... I'll probably just get whatever the bartender and i can think up, or a shot of whiskey.
