Heh. Philistines. Make beer without hops, distill it, age it for 12 years in oak sherry casks, and you've got a fine scotch. That's my favourite brew. The very word whisky comes from a Gaelic expression, uisge beatha, the water of life. The Reverend Blair would no doubt shoot me, or at least whack me upside the head, for saying this, but compared to scotch, most beer makes me think, "hey buddy, your horse is diabetic."
But I *do* like Alexander Keith's Pale Ale. And Rickers Red. And the stuff my brother makes. One of them, anyway. I have three brothers, two of whom brew horse piss and vinegar, but the oldest knows what he's doing.
