    Only in the heat, and only in a crappy beer.

    I've only seen it done in West Virginia and Mexico. I tried it myself in both places, but nah...

    It's not "blech!", but it's not necessary.

    That's something I haven't done in years..matter of fact, I had forgotten all about it..
    I've seen people salt the rim of a glass full of beer..

    Yes. Definitely more of a Bud Light thing.

    Anything light, mexi-beers...any beer that isn't especially well crafted can be improved with a little lime and salt. Micheladas are occasionally nice. I live at the beach in S FL, kinda started living our own Corona commercial years ago, and it works in the heat. I don't drink that stuff usually though, we are IPA lovers in this house.

  10. For me, it'd be like putting cream and sugar in my coffee. Yuck!

    I prefer having salty potato chips with my beer. Same end. More flavor. And then there's that wonderful crunch...

    Yeah but only in situations where I HAVE to drink anything like light beer or(God forgive me) South African beer. I really don't want to be spending half the evening making trips to the mens room,...
    Curiously enough, around here you'll see the occasional salty pepperoni immersed in a beer,.....:confused:

    Barley, water, hops, yeast, occasionally wheat. No fruits, vegetables, herbs, or spices.
