So I mentioned to someone how much I loath beer. Absolutly hate it. He suggested Blue Moon, saying that I might hate it less. The last time I took a sip of beer was probably about 6 years ago. I figured it was time to try it again. Looking around on the Dope and the rest of the internet (googling “I hate the taste of beer”) I purchased a six pack of…Hoegaarden, Point Pale Ale and New Glarius Spotted Cow. I put one of each into my fridge along with a Lienie Berry Weiss and a Corona.
I figured the Hoegaarden (being a wheat beer) would be my best bet. I opened it, poured some of it into a chilled glass and…nope still didn’t like it. I choked down maybe a quarter of the bottle and called it a night (for the beer anyways). I still have a few others to try. Oh, and if anyone has suggestions, I’m open to them. I should mention that as far as I can tell, it’s the hops I really really really don’t like. It’s not the alcohol, it’s the bitter.
I think I forgot one crucial step though. In addition to finding a palatable (to me) beer, I think I need to have a drink or two first, ya know, to ‘loosen up’ my taste buds. I compleatly forgot about that step.
Well I guess it’s back to Smirnoff Triple Black. Hey, technically it’s a beer.
PS Normally I wouldn’t just go out and spend $25 on specialty beer I know I probably won’t like, but I’m in the middle of pouring a patio and we’ll probably have a get together when it’s done, so I should have some friends over that will help finish it up in the next few weeks.
