How can I make myself like beer?!

Question: How can I make myself like beer?
I hate the taste of beer and even wine and most alcohol, but I don't feel very manly when people offer me alcoholic beverage and I tell them I only drink sissy drinks like wine coolers or hard lemonade...

I'd like to be able to "kick back a few with the boys"

How can I remedy this?

You can learn about beer and you can learn what elements of beer you like by tasting beers ::
At a wine tasting different wines can be tasted while people taste and talk about what characteristics of beer flavours they experience in that particular beer and do the same for the next. By doing this you can educate your taste buds and perhaps find out which elements you DO like and eliminate those you don't!
Drinking maxi-brews by huge corporate giants that make insipid beers like Bud, Miller's or Coors are possibly turning you off. These beers have much disrespect in the Beer World. Experiment with small craft brewers. Try some other malt beverages like Ciders, Perry made from pears, Lambic and Kriek made with wild cherries! It's also been made from pineapples, bananas, plums and prunes, among others. I'll wager your macho friends know nothing about anything but the maxibrews like most people!

Beer is one of the world's oldest prepared beverages, possibly dating back to the early Neolithic or 9500 BC, when cereal was first farmed, and is recorded in the written history of ancient Egypt and Mesopotamia.

Why on earth would you want to make yourself like something. It's far more manly to NOT run with the crowd and just drink what you want.

You could take up smoking. Apparently smokers are more likely to like beer than wine. But that's also not very bright. I suspect it's because it destroys the tastebuds.

Just drink what you want and quit caring about what the others are drinking. That's the sign of a real man.

Try drinking a good craft beer rather than the cheap macro brewed swill you are drinking. They are not all fizzy, yellow tasteless drinks. If you can't stand alcohol, you have a problem.

I'm a proud alcoholic

Be yourself!
Try hard cider. It is great and my husband loves it too. Tell your friends you are drinking the beverage that made America great! Hard cider is what everyone drank in the colonies.

I can't stand beer or wine either.
Cider is a good idea!

but at the end of the day as I always say u may as well drink something u like wen there all gonna get you to that same happy place :)


beer and wine are acquired tastes its different to everyone. lotsa of peeps say they won't drink wine or beer...but hen u don't have alot of funds.....I heard beer n wine can become the best drinks ever.

honestly, i don't like beer either. maybe just ad vodka to root beer and tell your friends it's beer.
