Just curious how everyone prefers their beer. A coworker offered me a free 12 pack of beer, and was puzzled when I turned it down because it was canned (which was more important than it being awful stuff anyways). I have a feeling which way the poll is going to lean but I could be wrong.

I'm pretty sure that I'd wind up spilling most of the beer if I tried to drink it from the skull of my enemy.  Maybe I could make it into a beer hat...

But really, the order of preference goes draft>bottle>can.  Given the choice, I won't get canned beer, but since generally shitty beer is what's put in cans, I have no real way to know if the can's what makes the beer shitty, or if the beer was shitty before being canned.  

I think there's a general stigma against cans, and that if a beer is bottled, it's respectable.  Kind of like how wine with screw tops or boxed are looked down on, even though both are more advantageous than corked bottles.

Draft always tastes the best. Next would be bottled. I never have, and I never will drink beer out of a can.

Draft.  At home I love drinking cold beer from a bottle though.  Especially out by the bbq.  Oh so manly sounding!

For most beers that come in both cans and bottles, the actual beer isn't all the much different in my experience.  I have no problem buying cans, I just don't drink out of them.

You're too much of a beer snob if you think a can of Bud poured in a glass tastes differently then what comes out of a bottle.  icon_wink

Bottles at home, draft when I'm out. I probably wouldn't touch anything in a can unless it was supposed to be excellent beer.

There is a canned insurgency among a few microbrewers. What started with just Dales Pale Ale has spread to about a dozen premium beers at my packie. I haven't tried any of them myself, but I know they're meticulous about can liners that remove that metallic taint. The can is a more logical container if you can prevent it from degrading the beer...civilized people drink beer from glasses anyway, so theoretically it shouldn't matter how it's stored.

I drink draft beer when I'm out at a restaurant and want something to go with a hearty meal.

I drink bottled beer when I'm relaxing at home or cooking on the grill.

I drink canned beer when my only goal is to get hammered as quickly as humanly possible.

Voted bottled, only because I don't get to draft beer locales very much, but I'd prefer local microbrew draft any day. I must not be very civilized, because I can drink from the bottle with no dire consequences that I notice.   ninja

Gotta go with Draft/bottle/can like most of the other people. Draft tastes the best, bottles are great for lounging around the house or at a bar/club where you aren't sitting much, and cans are for...well...they are for when there either isn't much room in the fridge or you don't have much money and they are on sale. Yuengling on tap or in a bottle is delicious. Yuengling out of a can tastes like a nickel beer and has a horrible metallic aftertaste. Still, cans aren't a deal breaker, and if someone were to offer me a beer out of a can I would still take it.

I can't imagine why anyone would prefer anything to draft.

I always found draft beer to be under carbonated, plus I am "allergic" to draft beer, so I inherently prefer bottles to anything.  I preferred bottles to draft prior to discovering my allergy, but now bottles are simply the standard for me.  Whether I drink a glass or a keg, I vomit within an hour of drinking draft beer no matter the tap, the temperature, the type, etc.  I start to get a fever, my heartrate increases, I get an awful headache, and then I vomit and it lasts for quite while.  After it happened a number of times with numerous variables (cleaner taps, different breweries or bars, small quantities) I swore off draft beer forever.  It's not worth the risk for me.

I primarily drink bottled beer, but cans have their use as well.  For example, when we go boating cans are the standard.  Any place that doesn't allow bottled products forces cans to be the compromise (beaches, pools, boats, etc).  I'll take canned beer over no beer.

Interesting. I'm now racking my brain trying to think what element of beer in a keg could possibly be doing that that isn't present in a bottle. Many bottled craft beers are bottle conditioned, meaning that a secondary fermentation occurs in the bottle to provide the carbonation whereas kegs are typically force carbonated with pressurized CO2. That' about the only consistent difference I can think of-the presence of CO2 from a tank.

I know I'm not allergic to draft beer, but I have had a few bad reactions that seemed more than coincidence.  Twice, after drinking "whatever was on tap" for beer - which I only had one or two of, and also tasted "skunky" - I got roaring migraines (two of only three in my life, so I'm not prone to them).  I've also had one spectacular reaction to preservatives in salads delivered by a take-out joint, so I can really relate to Pete's issues with draft beer.  When you can't figure out exactly what the problem is, it is just safer, and easier, to avoid the possible culprit.   nod

My worst beer experience was some tap Coors Light. It was my 21st and I was with friends that were cheap and were curious how much I could take and he ordered a pitcher of Coors Light that for some weird reason was totally flat. I tried some and it was absolutely horrid.

Also Fat Tire is best on tap it tastes weird bottled. Although New Castle is great on tap and bottled so it can vary.

Some places just have dirty taps that I think get all sorts of undesirable microbes in your beer, which can give you the runs, etc.

I don't have anything against any beer delivery system in principal, really, but I like to drink it out of a bottle... stays colder longer than in a can, I think.

Some guys like that bottled beer
Some like it in a can
Some say a keg's the best beer
For a real beer drinking man

Everyone has their favorite
But on one thing they agree
The greatest beer in this whole world
Is the one you drink for free

Free beer free beer
That's my favorite brand
If I didn't have to buy it
It's the best beer in the land
Warm flat funky
It don't matter to me
The greatest beer in this whole world
Is the one you buy for me.

One of my all time favorite ways of slugging a brew back was in a "glass-boot". Comparable to the "Yard of Ale" in England.

And that was filled with German beer as well. Gut shtuff. icon_lol

The skull of Wynric Lance, failed claimant to the throne of Eirea, does not make as good a wine goblet as Lord Shryke had imagined, the despot revealed Monday. "This damn thing is practically impossible to drink out of," said Shryke at a banquet celebrating the defeat of the Army Of Light. "You have to hold it just right to keep the wine from spilling over the parietal bones where they connect with the occipital. And there's a leak in the left temple. As much as I love the idea of using it, it's just stupid and impractical." Shryke concluded that while he might end up drinking from Lance's skull "occasionally, for show,"
