So we recently had micro brewery beer and micro brew whisky, a craze which I suspect will be over when people realize it's just lovely beer.

Also cheap box wine suddenly became popular the past few years.

What's the next big thing that will get people drunk? Have you noticed the cool kids drinking something in your home town, and went "I guess that's going to be a thing now"

Bagged Alcohol. They're popular in Africa and stuff but will catch on in the states soon enough.

Boxed wine became popular a couple years ago because Gen Cry can't tell the difference between good wine and bad wine (and college kids just want to get hosed up for cheap). It does help that quality of boxed wine has gone up a bit.

Microbrews may be a little bit of a craze, but a lot of the backlash that generated them came from people rejecting the piss-water that is coors light/keystone/miller/etc and trying to show sophistication in taste. More than likely we'll just see better tasting and mass produced beer (kinda like Chiptole of beer) that will drive away a bit of the microbrew crazy. But microbrews will always be around as they can have some pretty strange tones and flavor to them (and are usually good).


edit: Kirkland alcohol does own and is already a trend

VVV naw that's really loving dumb, sorry. kids these days are too pussy to do that. plus alcohol is so cheap that it's not worth trying to get increased potentcy at risk of dying or losing your arm

fruity, sugary malt beverages are taking over the beer case at my local gas stations. there are about 6 flavors of Mike's Harder alone. I guess people would rather drink that sweet poo poo than cheap beer.

back in the old days if you couldn't afford something decent and wanted a good buzz, you bought Steel Reserve, and swilled it down as fast as possible to avoid the horrible taste. if it got warm, you stood the risk of gagging/puking.

now you can get the same alcohol content drinking a lemonade or cherry/lime flavored thing, for the same price. and you can also get diabetes while you're at it. what a country.

Mikes was really popular when I was in college for pretty much the reason you pointed out. People want to get hosed up, but they've also realized that keystone/miller/etc doesnt get you hosed up and tastes like piss. So they're moving to other drinkable cheap alternatives like Mikes.

I really like hard cider though, and it seems that cider is making a come back in the US. One thing that owns about moving to NZ is that they love cider here and have all kinds of different flavors. Back in the states, I was lucky if I was able to anything other than Apple or Pear cider. I even grew up in Sonoma County and most cider is from there (Ace, Applesauced, etc). Here I can get motherfucking blackcurrent blueberry cidar, passion fruit + feijoa, or boysenberry cider. it owns

a friend of mine has a whole fridge full of beers and ciders, and I do enjoy a good cider. it's not overly sweet, and has a good enough ABV%

Too late. I remember seeing like 20 different Smirnoff and Absolute flavors at Safeway. Everything from Cookies N Cream vodka to Semen vodka. poo poo was disgusting and managed to taste worse than plain vodka.


Edit VVVV gotcha. I dont really watch TV but I do remember them getting fairly popular. Mostly like Lemon or Lime, or Lemon Lime Orange Vodka but yea it's def becoming/is a trend.

ugh, I've had that flavored poo poo and it's loving awful.

it's pretty easy to make your own lemon or vanilla vodka. but you have to avoid drinking it until the flavors are infused.

a good vanilla vodka with coke is pretty boss though

This is extremely hard to do because there are a lot more laws regarding spirit distillation than beer. I do think you're on to something though. I predict that legit moonshining will come into vogue. People will show their individuality by making liquor, people will die because it's mostly wood alcohol.

I think "Skittles Vodka" was a commonly attempted college project that failed pretty miserable. but I'd rather just squeeze some fresh lemon/lime/orange juice or something into vodka than try to infuse poo poo with some half-assed flavor.

never tried vanilla vodka but I imagine that is probably one combo that ends up working pretty well.

In Australia we call boxed wine goon. Proper etiquette requires one to remove the 'goon bag' from the box and usually is drunk straight from the nozzle. A fellow party goer may be called upon to 'take a knee' and scull some goon from the goon bag while a friend holds it above them. It is sometimes also placed in front of the standing friends groin to simulate fellatio for humorous affect.

you're actually right, it's a million times easier just to squeeze some fresh juice in your drink. the flavor is a little different but lemon infused vodka isn't really worth it.

you can't really get the same flavor with vanilla from putting a few drops of vanilla extract in it though. gotta split some real beans and let it sit in the bottle.

to be fair, at least the sweaty nerds here are pro-alcohol (lotta nerds are anti drinking) and they at least claim to have a taste. that's already more interesting than utter alcohol apathy like most college-aged kids or rednecks whose only criteria is: does it have ethanol in it?
