Hey tropers, with the rising popularity of craft beers I started wondering: did you find some works that show beer drinking differently than "wants to get piss drunk on some cheap whatever"?

Why is this article split into four non-parallel units? I can sort of understand separating hard drinks from soft drinks (although a single scene can involve both, as in the Godfather 2 example) but then "against type" and "other"? These should be merged into the two main categories (if not all into one), and if something's against type or has some other distinction, that can be noted in the example itself.

I'm trying to figure out if there's a related trope. It's the one where an alcoholic drink is poured, and it's so strong that when it splashes out of the container, it burns the counter or whatever surface with a noticeable smoke and sizzle. Also related is in many cartoons, where a drink is stirred with a spoon, and when the spoon is removed, it's burned/melted away to a blackened nub at the end. Does that trope already exist, and what's it called?

It's best to ask at Lost and Found but I think Ate the Spoon

  • Forgot the exact source, but a bartender in some western once explained he keeps milk around because people tough enough to dare order milk at his bar really aren't the kind of people he'd want to offend by not having any.

Anyone remember the name of the film? This entry was under Against Stereotype/Film.

What would be a suitable Drink Order for The Chessmaster? I know it would be a beverage you would drink if you were deep in thought, but I can't decide whether tea, wine, or some other drink would fit a chessmaster best.

For Michael Corleone, it was club soda.

"Shaken, not stirred" makes more sense if you know that most vodka used to be made from potatoes, and thus had a distinctive oil that was broken up by shaking. These days, most vodka is made from grains.

What? Hey, ppl, for those of you who got an F in History, the potato reached Eastern Europe almost 300 years after vodka was invented! And, y'know, it's either Russians or Poles (or both) who did it.

JFYI, in Russia there are five grades of drinking alcohol, in descending order: Alpha, Lux, Extra, Basic and highest purification. Of these Alpha (used for the best premium vodkas) must be made of 100% pure grain only (wheat, or rye , or both) and Lux, used in most quality brands, may include no more than 20% of pure potato starch. For Extra the requirements are more relaxed, and allow up to 45% of potato starch in starter mash, but then this grade is used only in cheap Gargle Blasters, and two lowest grades are little better than paint remover.

No mention of Leon? From The Professional? Total badass, kills a half dozen men while upside down above his doorframe? Only drinks milk?

The next one might be easier to see.

How well does it match the trope?
