For some, a question like "if you could only drink one beer for the rest of your life, what would it be?" is easy to answer. In any given week, they normally only drink one kind of beer - a crisp and easy pilsner from one of the major U.S. breweries, or a local lager found in grocery stores.
For the rest of us - who see new restaurants and travel destinations as a chance to discover new beers and wouldn't think of ordering the same thing twice in a sitting - the question is increasingly complicated. Because, it's not, "what's your favorite beer?" sort of thing. It's not even, "what do you like to drink with pizza?" Because - it's really about what would you drink with everything. It's a challenge to pick an extremely versatile but still flavorful and hopefully challenging brew that will keep you engaged for the rest of your years.
Recently, Drinking in America asked this question on their Facebook page. Check out their results, but please share your thoughts in the comments below, and tell us why it's your pick.
I'll be thinking of mine this week! Back with more soon.
