What kind of beer are you?

Beer is a natural product, representing the best of botany (barley and hops), biochemistry (the conversion of starches to fermentable monosaccharides by enzymes in germinated barley), and the unusual pathways of a genetically-tractable model organism (the yeast, Saccharomyces cerevisiae, can make ethanol from sugars).

My new home state just celebrated 6 months since the passage of new legislation permitting the sale of craft beers possessing greater than 6% ethyl alcohol per volume. I donated more money to this cause than I did to any political candidate in the 2004 elections. That should tell you how I was going to score on the blogthing below (BTW, I'm currently enjoying a Sierra Nevada 2006 Bigfoot Barleywine Style Ale.).

You Are Guinness

You know beer well, and you'll only drink the best beers in the world.
Watered down beers disgust you, as do the people who drink them.
When you drink, you tend to become a bit of a know it all - especially about subjects you don't know well.
But your friends tolerate your drunken ways, because you introduce them to the best beers around.
