Question about BEER -- how do you choose?

tigger2 | Aug 21, 2006 09:47 PM

I have a question for all of you beer drinkers out there -- how do you categorize the beers that you drink, from good, better, best? For example, do you think:

-- Domestic beer is good, imported beer is better?
-- Macro beers are good, micro brews are better?
-- Lagers are good, pilsners are better, ales are best?
-- Locally-brewed is best?
etc etc.

I am trying to understand the thought-process that people go through when selecting and differentiating among beers. I don't actually really drink beer, so I can't figure this out, and unfortunately, need to understand this pretty quickly for some research I am doing.

Also, how would you categorize the following beer brands: Budweiser, Miller, Heineken, Chimay, Brooklyn Brewery, Ommegang?

Thanks a lot for your help!!!!
