Quiz: What Type of Beer Are You?

What brand of beer matches your personality?

Happy St. Patrick’s Day! I hope you are having a merry Sunday, no matter what you’re doing – celebrating or not. I generally don’t feature a lot of drinking quizzes on Blogthings, as I have heard many of you don’t drink, but I figured if there’s any day I’m going to break that rule … it’s today.

For many people I know, this is a big day (or weekend… or week!) for letting loose a little and having fun with friends. It also happens to coincide with the end of a big music / tech / film festival in my city, and from what I can tell, people are a bit too burned out to party that much at this point 😉 I live in a neighborhood where people can “open carry” beer, which is a bit of a rare thing in the US. So even though everyone is worn out from ten days of partying, I do expect a bit of noise tonight. (As for me and Mr. Blogthings, we are a bit more low key.)

Anyway, when I think of St. Patrick’s Day parties, I think of beer. And not the green stuff. My Irish-American friends say green beer is a big no-no, and I’m happy to oblidge. Who knows what all that green dye is hiding? Today’s quiz is not about green beer, but actual beer brands. As in which beer actually fits your personality.

I’m not a big beer drinker, but I enjoyed writing What Type of Beer Are You? From what I remember of my beer drinking days, there are definitely certain personality types that prefer certain types of beer – even if a lot of those differences are just due to branding and advertising. I thought it would be fun to explore that in a quiz, and if you don’t drink much, you can just do some guessing for the questions.

Discussion topics (Comment below and let me know any or all of these):

  1. What do you get on What Type of Beer Are You?
    Is it true for you?
  2. Do you drink beer? What’s your favorite brand?
  3. What do you think of green beer?

What Holiday Cocktail Are You?

I’m not much of a drinker, but I couldn’t resist writing a holiday cocktail quiz this year. Holiday cocktails are just so festive, and besides, I think even some of us light drinkers enjoy a toast during the holidays. Even without the drinking (and I know a lot of Blogthings fans don’t drink), there’s something sweet about a toast during the holidays. I love to raise my class (even if it’s just filled with sparkling juice) to the year I just experienced, the year to come, and friends old and new.

Do you love to toast? I wish I knew how to give toasts as well as some of my friends do. I’m always a happy participant, but I am almost certain that I would freeze up if I had to lead a toast. In my opinion, the perfect toast is both heartfelt and funny. Not too long and not too short. There’s a real artform to speaking on the fly like that, and I am not sure I have it 🙂 Oh well, maybe one day I’ll get enough courage!

I hope you agree that holiday cocktails is a fun topic. Take my latest quiz to find out: What Holiday Cocktail Are You?
Comment below and let me know what you got. Do you have a favorite holiday cocktail? I’m a big fan of eggnog, but without the booze. 🙂 And what are you toasting to this year?

Since I can’t ring in the new year with all of you in real life, let’s do a virtual toast. (This is the perfect opportunity for me to practice those toasting skills…)

I’d like to propose a toast to all of you. Thanks for making Blogthings fun in 2012, and thanks for fixing all my little errors. It’s been a real pleasure to share quizzes with each and every one of you. Happy New Year, everyone! Here’s to a great 2012!!!

What Cuban cocktail best suits you? Take this quiz to find out!

You know what I could go for right now? A beach vacation.I wouldn’t need anything too fancy. Just a nice ocean to swim in. A few good books to read. And of course, a cocktail to sip while I stick my feet in the water. I just love the feeling of being away from it all when I’m at the beach. And the nice breeze and ocean are pretty nice to have as well – with a cool drink in my hand at the same time!

What beach appeals to you the most? It’s a tough call for me. I’ve really enjoyed Mallorca, Byron Bay in Australia, Cape Cod, Santa Monica, and (yes!!!) even the Gulf Coast of Texas. But if I had to say, I’d want to go to a beach I’ve never visited before. And Cuba is at the top of my list! Can we travel there? I am never up to date on that 🙂

When I think of Cuba, I think of all of the culture it has to offer. From ballet to great music to beautiful visual arts, I’d like to check it all out (while I’m not at the beach, that is). I think I could also get really into Cuban food, and the architecture looks amazing. Okay I’m sold on Cuba, and we haven’t even started talking cocktails yet.

Do you know about Cuban cocktails? I recently learned that many bartenders and drinking aficionados went to Cuba during Prohibition in the United States. A lot of great cocktails were developed during this time, including mojitos, piña colada, and strawberry daiquiris. Yum! Now are you ready to visit with me?

Even if you don’t agree with a Cuba trip in practice, I’m betting you agree in spirit. We all could use a few minutes to relax. And I wrote my latest quiz with relaxation in mind.  Want a virtual beach vacation? Then I think you’ll like my latest whimsical quiz, What Cuban Cocktail Are You Quiz?
