    At a bar, draft. At home, bottle. IPA or DIPA.

    haha, just like about everything else talked about on this forum, there's no accounting for taste!

    There is no simple answer to that question...

    Domestic beer - Bottle only
    Craft beer - Cans poored into a glass pint
    Exotic beer (Belgium, french, etc.) - Bottle poored into an appropriate glass.
    Draft - Straight from the tap if they left me :)

    Beer out of a bottle. Wine only poured from a bottle into a glass wine glass. Sodas from a can.

    My preference is for draught, and I generally prefer flights. If I'm taking it home, growler pours into pints.

    Lately it seems the smaller breweries & craft guys are mostly using cans. I care less about bottle vs. can than I care about what's in it. 'Cuz either way I'm pouring it into a glass.

    I poured my beer into a glass so bottle or can didn't matter. I'm dry now.

    As long is it is 9%abv or above, I won't care after the 3rd one.

    Craft beer in bottles.
    At the pub, draught please.
    At the brewery, just lay me down beneath the barrel's tap. If I can't get up, please roll me over so I can lap it up from the scuppers.

    I take my Coors lite cans and pour into a frosty mug. The colder the better.

    Draft preferred; then bottle into glass; then bottle.

    Cans are terrible. Like eating Asian food with a steel fork. Just changes the whole taste and experience.

    Bottle or Can? I would have to be desperate to consider either.

    I'm not really a beer guy, so whichever. I will usually sip a beer when I go to a bar to play pinball, so as not to ignore the barkeep.

    No Fishbowls? You guys are lame. Lol!
    If you don't know what a Fishbowl is you grew up in the wrong part of town.:D
    My liver refuses to allow alcohol in my body anymore so I sure do miss a good Bass or Newcastle on draft.
    Porters, Stouts and Ales with the occasional Pilsner(summertime).

    IPAs gag me.

    I don't like beer.. Either way, whether in a bottle or can, I don't really like the taste of beer. Beer also doesn't make me feel good.

    Bottle in a bar...but I don't go to bars any more.
    Draft at a restaurant; 22oz. glass please.
    Can at home because it's convenient and comes in 30 packs.
