Now here is a thread I feel I can add to
Wine - so many options out there I grew up thinking I didn't like red wine turns out I just don't like very dry reds (Cabernet Sauvignon, Bordeaux etc) and find the fruitier reds are far more drinkable (Chianti, Temparanillo & Sangiovese etc) . It's all down to what you like really I'm not much of a white wine fan. I've had some English wine that was drinkable but it was too dry for my taste.
Beer - I rarely drink IPA as it tends to be the cheap and unexciting session beer here but I do enjoy a good bitter and there are so many to choose from over here I seem to like anything that Badger Brewery turn out. I do seem to edge towards the mid strength beers for taste but don't have the constitution for it sadly so have to limit consumption.
How about Belgian beers they brew some amazing beers too?
