I don’t drink too awfully much anymore, and especially beer. I favor whiskey and tequila whenever I do, and recently tried Screwball peanut butter whiskey! A good sipping whiskey to go along with some of your favorite chocolate on the side.

Love my IPAs, especially the citrus ones, grapefruit being my favorite. Lots of the local area beers brewed here in south Florida, like Cigar City beers. Calusa Brewery beers. Big Top Brewery.. Motorworks. I try to buy local and rarely drink corporate beer. I'd rather support a family business. Plus, small breweries beer puts the big guys to shame, generally. But I won't turn down a Kona.

I usually keep my beer fridge in the garage stocked with 2 or 3 different IPAs, a porter, a stout or two and 2 or 3 different lagers. Lately I'll get a taste for vodka. 2 shots on the rocks, no water. Stolichnaya.

Beer is nice but at 380lbs it takes a shitload of beer to get anywhere. That's when I'll sneak in a few shots of Stolichnaya to get things moving!

Perhaps I'm a beer weenie, but IPAs have been difficult for me to embrace. However, I'm clearly the minority, because every time I go into any bar with a good beer rep, at least 50% of the big sellers appear to be IPAs. I've always found the IPAs to have a strong hoppy taste on the back end, and I prefer the heavy red, brown, amber beers. But I really need to branch out and try the IPAs more, I kinda feel like I'm missing out.

IPA’s are good, but also not for everyone. The best route is to do a tasting of a good brewery. But starting out you’ll need to adapt your taste buds. Try some blond and pale ales. Also Laguntias Day time and Founders All day IPA are lighter IPA’s that aren’t super hop heavy.

I'm with you, man. There is a very successful and regionally famous microbrewery right next door to my house... and I can't go there anymore. Way too much hops for my liking.

I've seen some beers labelled as "double IPAs." What does that typically mean?

Double IPAs mean even more hops. As much as I love IPAs some double IPAs are too hoppy for me. Usually I can tell by the alcohol count. Some of these double IPAs and triple IPAs are 10-15% alcohol.
