I know this may seem like a stupid topic, but I just cannot drink Beer. This has often lead to problems is social situations, as there are a often places which serve nothing but Beer, a collection of undrinkable sweet vile wines, or pre mixed 'Alco pops' vis Smirnoff Ice. Somehow I find the taste of beer similar to drain water.. I've tried having several whiskies before leaving the house, to try to mask the taste of the Beer, it doesn't work. Even after 4-5 whiskies, I still cannot stand the taste of Beer. The Alco pops are not options because I don't drink 'women's drinks' Wine is also not an option, because they are so vile. They are worse than cooking wines. I know the easiest option would be to stop going to such establishments. However, this is not possible; there are so many people who want to see a traditional British pub, or a heavy techno club... I have to take them for business relations. Perhaps a mindset goes with drinking Beer, because I do not know anyone else who enjoys his or her alcohol, as I do, but cannot drink Beer... Even if they do not particularly enjoy it, they still manage to drink it; the most I have managed is a quarter of a bottle.
