What Your Beer Choice Says About You

The highly unscientific opinions of these three BuzzFeed Fellows who drink a lot of beer.

"If you're a big fan of Abita Purple Haze, you've probably exposed yourself at Mardi Gras, but you own it. Good for you."

"You're a raspberry and cheese lover… you know a lot about beer and cheeses. You believe that fruits and beer should be a thing that everyone loves."

"Blue Moon is craft beer for people who have never had a craft beer."

"Anyone who likes Dogfish Head's 90 Minute IPA, meanwhile, clearly goes the extra mile for quality. They don't like to settle for less, and enjoy the finer things."

"But people who require the 120 Minute IPA take things way too far. They stare down at everyone else from their high horse."

"People who drink Dos Equis are especially susceptible to advertising."

"There are two types of people who like Guinness: people who know the history of the beer and will be quick to tell you that it's actually really low in calories and good for you, and people who pass out in the street on Saint Patrick's Day."

"Poor adult."

"Not always a hipster. Sometimes just practical…or a grandpa..."

"You want to be seen with a Red Stripe in your hand."

"You've even convinced yourself that the shape of the bottle isn't why you chose Red Stripe."

"If you're drinking Red Stripe, it's because you needed something to drink while you're smoking weed."

"Red's Apple Ale drinkers don't really like beer. They like alcoholic apples."

"You recently graduated from Mike's Hard."

"People who like Rogue's beers have good taste and are adventurous. Don't lie: Did you pick this beer because you thought it would impress your friends who drink boring beer?"

"You are rogue-esque but in a totally casual way."

"Let me paint you a picture. You had a long weekend, lots of work, lots of stress. You decided to unwind with your friends at this chillaxy dive bar and when the bartender asked you what you want you pointed at whatever was closest. You took the first sip and life was suddenly fun and delicious again. This drink is your blankie."

"Suave but subtle."

"Shiner Bock drinkers have been to a rodeo or two."

"Shipyard Pumpkinhead is just fun. fun. fun. You also get super excited when they bring back Pumpkin Spice Lattes at Starbucks every fall."
