Youíve just been confronted by aliens and they ask you to take them to your leader. Being the first time ever that a human has made contact with an extraterrestrial lifeform, you decide to be a good host and first invite them for a drink at the neighbourhood pub. Whatíre you having?

Iíll have a Guinness thanks, thatís my first choice. As far as domestic Canadian brands are concerned, I like Big Rock Traditional Ale and Alexander Keithís IPA. I also make my own beer at home and have made some great batches. My favourite home brew is a robust London Porter.

Although I prefer beer, I also donít mind a Crown Royal or a Jamiesonís now and again, or a fine Scotch whisky.

The first roundís on me. Whatíll you have? http://www.websmileys.com/sm/drink/trink38.gif

Well since you asked, if they landed here I think it'd have to be Shiner Boch. If they stopped by my house all they'd get is Schafer (http://www.beerhistory.com/library/holdings/schaefer_anderson.shtml) Light though. After they passed out I'd run off with their ship and head to Mars to settle the sky color debate.

That depends. My leader? Do I take them to see my wife or my cat? If the first then a nice glass of cabernet sauvignon...if the latter then a dish of milk (whole milk and none of that 2% or skim milk).

I LOVE Shiner Bock. I was in Dallas earlier this year and tried the Bock and really enjoyed it.

I was in Cork, Ireland last spring and tried it there. So far it's the only place I've ever seen it, but there's a local brew pub in town that makes up a decent knock-off.

Yep, after reading the topic title and OP, I had this picture of some poor slob poisoning the ambassador to earth ... then the aliens going into a rage and nuking the planet.

Anyway, nothing for me, thanks. Both my sister and I usually get migraine headaches an hour or two after trying a drink. Every now and then I'll try again ... to my regret. There is really only one time that I actually enjoyed the effects of alcohol for awhile. I've never really been able to understand the appeal.

As long as you're going to be plying them with depressants, how about pulling out the 4-hose huka and loading it up with some North Slope Sao Paulo trip weed, followed by a handful of Secanol, polished off with a little shot of mainline morphine.

If they are not hospitable, or at least in trhe mood to negotitate; we would at least have a better chance of beating them in a fight.

I have to agree that what we like to drink is really irrelevant to what any theoretical alien ambassadors would like/be able to drink. (Though they'd be getting Cherry Coke from me, if they wanted what I drink; I don't imbibe.) And, in fact, alcohol is a poison, so.

Gin and tonic, or whatever the pronunciation is in whatever part of space I happen to be in.... :)

We have a great beer here called Canterbury, made by Pacific Western Brewing. Apparently they ship it all around the world, but you probably can't find it in your local pub. If you like dark beers with flavour, I heartily recommend it.

Thumbs up to whoever mentioned cherry Coke, too... if I could get that around here, it would be enough to get me to drink pop again. We even have a Coke bottling plant in this city, and we still don't have access to the cherry variety. :cry:

Westmalle dubbel. Its a Brown trappist ale from Belgium. Its also the most gorgeous beer ive ever drunk. Serve at 11 deg IIRC and in the correct glass for the full experience. the trippel is stronger and golden but i personally prefer the dubbel. I love many of the UK real ales as well but Belgium sure can brew some fine beers.

If its spirits then i'd offer a Rum. Ive got a nice 23 year old Appletons Rum that may do the trick.Drink from a Rum tot without any coke or anything like that to get in the way of the flavour. Pussers Navy rum would be good too. Its the one Navy Rum thats made to the same recipe as the Royal Navy rum ration was.
My Wray and Nephew overproof may do the alien in, at 69% alchohol it is a little strong for some tastes!

Pleasure? That's completely different.

Depressants are for removing the edge. For honing the edge, I'd have to take them up to 20K feet and throw them out of a plane. A nice demonstration of trust too. None of this mamby-pamby falling backward into each others arms garbage.

There is no guesswork about what a person's made of when they are getting the bejeebers scared out of them. I've never met anyone capable of maintaining a superficial persona when the only thing between them and the ground is air.

If you are living at the edge, you are taking up too much space. Shut up and jump!

For an alcoholic drink, I'd first try for a double Knockando, then Glen Fiddech or Glen Livet. If none of these are on the shelf, any single malt scotch.

I'd offer it to them, with a warning that scotch is an acquired taste.

For a beer I'd prefer/suggest a double boch, or an original canadian Molson Brador(not the US watered down version, if they even still make it).

For non-alcoholic, nothing beats A&W Root Beer. Not from a can or bottle though, straight from the tap, and please NO ICE! That's sacrilege!

At the weekend, I was drinking a 1986 Highland Park that was never offered for sale. Extremely rare and valuable. It tasted like sherry. Bleh. I much preferred the Signatory Port aged 1992 Laphraoig, which is unbelievably good. Sadly, I think we were drinking the last bottle of that in Scotland. If anybody sees one, buy it! It comes in a small blue wooden box.

My favorite "tipple" is actually a "non-tipple". I'm into cream sodas. Dad's (red) or Stewart's (gold) when I can get it. Barq's (white) when I can't. My absolute favorite is by a Moncton microbrewery called The Pumphouse. Wonderful stuff.

And it goes well with their fantastic wings and hot pepperoni. Their rootbeer is worth having as well.

Hmm. I think I'm working up a bit of a craving here.

Or, failing those ...
A St. Emilion Grand Cru Class­é

And to finish off, a good single-malt scotch. My current favourite is a 1966 Glen Albyn I have that was bottled in '05 (39 years in the wood - smoooooth!). Or a cask-strength Glen Mhor or Glen Garioch. Or a 27-year-old Scapa, if you can find one and if the price tag doesn't make you have a heart attack on the spot! If you prefer a more robust whisky, Bhunnahabhain, Lagavulin or Caol Ila are my favourite Islay malts. At the moment.

Dark Island is nice, Old P is OK and anything by Sam Smiths gets the thumbs up. We have two Sams pubs in Guisborough.

In the tap we have Hambleton Ales Nightmare on at the moment, it's their Winter Stout. Shows a certain over advertised Irish brew up for the thin weedy stuff it is.

Ah the Black Wych. That beguiling traditional English dark stout, silky smooth, soft and seductive. A heady brew, which entices you to lose your senses and fall for the charms of The Black Wych.*

As for Malts I like Talisker or Jura myself.

I like Talisker, but I find the bottle leaks. Well, why else would the whisky disappear so fast...?

And I bought an umberella from Talisker distillery!

Eh, some KY Homegrown will do the trick.

Er ... in the UK, KY is a brand name, but you don't drink it...

Oh! Just worked it out. Kentucky, yes?

Were you referring to Jack?

Sour mash bourbon never really did the trick for me.
