    I prefer beer.

    But wine looks pretty tasty.

    Wine seems to be winning the day so far.

    You shouldn't.

    I can drink a case of beer and you'd likely not notice. 1 or 2 glasses of wine and I'm slurring my words, with a headache that would take down a giant the next day.

    Stick with beer.

    I enjoy the taste and buzz of both...equally.

    Drink what you like, and like what you drink.

    If you are in a mood to compromise, drink "Barley Wine":cheer:, I have a bunch of it aging in my basemant :hw:

    People who are wine snobs seem to be superior to me.

    I'm firmly in the beer camp.
    Please don't test me at this late hour.

    Plus, you live in the most diverse State for wine, in the world...

    I try to drink mostly NY wines; I have a sister-in-law who works at a winery in our Finger Lakes region...we get a 40% discount at her place:cheer:

    One 5 oz glass of wine can equal the same alcohol content as a 12 oz bottle of beer and has less calories. And wine is less gassy.
