Beer, when do you drink it?

Having taste doesn't make you a snob. Cheap beer has its place in the world but that place is not in my stomach. Whenever I buy beer, I get an empty 6-pack box and fill it with six different beers that I haven't tried before. Sometimes it comes out to $9, sometimes (like today) to $15 and change. Price doesn't matter much to me, I just want something different every time and I've tried pretty much every cheap beer available here.
I don't drink crap beer, because I drink it for the taste. There are plenty of expensive beers which I won't drink. If I want to get drunk there more much more effective ways to do so.
