Beer snobs crack me up. I love Guinness, but I'm sure there are plenty of "true" beer drinkers who don't. Different strokes. Personally, I'm in more of the Irish/English beer camp, rather than the Continental Europe camp. A lot of Continental European beers, and beers made in that style elsewhere, just taste funny to me. If you really get into beers, it's pretty amazing how many different types and styles there are out there. It's fun (and relatively cheap) to just grab a six pack of something you've never tried before and drink it.
That said, I always find my way back to Bass and Guinness. I've had a hard time finding anything that tops either. In fact, I have a six of Bass sitting in my refrigerator at home anxiously awaiting my arrival this evening.
