Default Beer, alcohol, the works.

Can anyone tell me why people say beer taste "good?"
I've had a sip of beer when I was younger and it tasted horrible. I also had a sip of wine recently, and I gagged . Is it maybe I'm just not strong enough? lolol

you're just not strong enought serec <3

You're asking the same question as why people drink coffee instead of water.

"hey let's go down to the water house for a cuppa water and chat for hours"

People drink this stuff because it makes them feel good, short-term and socially.

Example: coffee keeps you awake. Also makes you look intelligent/professional in your career.
Example2: Beer makes you drunk (tranverse reality). If you don't drink it you're uncool/not a real man (*cough* peson)

Also these drugs , yes drugs!!, are addictive.

edit: you asked if it tastes good. I think coffee tastes good but not beer (i like fruity alc drinks more 8D). It doesn't necessarily have to taste good for people to drink them. It's more for what people want to get from it. You can take medicine (which is also a drug) for its effects, not what it taste like (which is horrible)

Well coffee wine and beer are all bitter.
I believe people like them cause they found something more bitter than their own life >.<
(That's what some people told me)

But for coffee it has caffeine and it can cause addiction.
That's why some people are addicted to Red Bull.

You can look for a pro wine person to introduce you to wines that are more fruity. (If you like it buy a few and keep them or you might not be able to find the same one ever again)

Beers are just cheap alcoholic to get you drunk or void your driving license.

Reason why people drink all these is cause.
Water in general is tasteless and you want something that has some taste. (i think)

I drink tea, water, coffee, beer, whiskey, cola, espressos, lattes you name it. I personally prefer a nice iced tea over water because as its been pointed out water is tasteless. I use powdered iced tea anyway in a 34oz cup so its pretty much mostly water. Coffee I mainly use cold to make an Italian soda. Beer goes straight to my head after two sips and I only drink maybe 2 pints once a year when getting together with friends and family as we relax in the evening. However stronger things such as cognac, whiskey, rum, vodka, gin, kalua, amarula, etc. does not go to my head like beer does so I usually put something like a spoonful in say a milkshake to give it a bit of the flavour or cook with it and usually have a small glass of it once or twice a month on a Friday night to unwind and relax after a meal.

Yes. This is exactly it. I drink coffee because there's not nearly enough bitterness in my life, and I see fit to add some with a BEVERAGE.

If beer actually tastes good to anyone, it's an aquired taste. People usually just drink it to get drunk, that's it. Wine is definitely an aquired taste, it takes some getting used to, especially if you're younger. If you really want to drink alcohol, go try some coolers. In some places, depending on the alcohol content (usually 0.5%, I think, so you'd be hardpressed to even get a buzz from that), minors are allowed to buy coolers.

Like what IEatGarbage said, you'll have to get used to beer before you actually like it, I think.
I tried wine and took shots before, and it tasted like medicine to me. But each time you try it, it'll gradually becomes better and better. o-o

I hate bitter beer and wine as well. I go for sweeter red wines, and occasionally, fruity beers (eg. Timmermans).

The nice thing about a few glasses of wine, is that it won't make you flat out drunk (well, depending on your tolerance); you'll just get to that euphoric state of being perfectly aware of everything, but at the same time slightly light headed, relaxed..and happy (if that makes any sense).

This. I don't know anyone who liked it their first time (myself included). For the first few times you're just doing it to be social - you don't really do it for the taste. Somewhere along the lines, however, you find that you now appreciate the taste of a good brew or glass of wine.

I've tried wine before, and if I remember right, I didn't care for it at all. Tasted like butter, sort of. >=x
Too underage for beer, and parents don't drink it either... so no.

if you start drinking beer you have to make a choice: the first is "don't care", the second is "beer snob"

there is a sizeable population of people out there who will judge character on the type of beer a person prefers to quaff, and they honestly believe that thier social standing in the human race is proportional to how much money they spend on ales

these people are complete morons btw, I love my Natural Light

To me, it doesn't taste "good". Instead, I like those beer cans where the alcohol percent is very little.
I'm pretty much the same as you. I don't like red wine. It tastes funny. Never force yourself to drink it fast either (I did that to finish the wine quickly before leaving). If I had to drink, I would choose white wine though; I think it's a bit sweeter.

Beer + Zapple [Forgotten the spelling] is nice

Mix beer with other soft drinks so they taste better
since beer is cheap.
