Root Beers, rarely, IBC and A&W mostly.

 

Ginger Beers, nope.

 

Haven't found a favorite yet. I suspect it will turn out to be a Porter or a Stout though. 

 

My favorite beer name of all time has to be:

 

"Dragon's Milk Bourbon Barrel Stout"

 

...which is actually brewed in the meatspace world (I think by New Holland Brewing Co.) even though it sounds like something only available someplace in Azeroth.

...Competitive Miming. :blink: 

 

I could see some Steampunk Dwarfs doing competitive mining

 

But sillier than that is Hot Air Balloons and Blunderbuses. 

 

This was depicted on film in 1965, in a magnificent movie titled: Those Magnificent Men and Their Flying Machines. 

 

Not to be outdone by fiction, such a duel is reported to have been perpetrated by two Frenchmen (in conflict over the affections of a woman; an Opera Dancer!) in the year 1908.

I don't have a favorite, but I do prefer porters and stouts.

When I was a waiter, two of us realized we hummed or whistled a lot at work, but things took off when we realized others were picking up on what we were broadcasting.  After that, every night we worked together we tried to see who could get more people humming or whistling our songs (or even singing the lyrics).  We would meet back by the dishwasher's area and state our song, then head out to the floor.  If you heard the other person's song, they got a point.  

 

I'm really surprised no one caught on to what we were doing.  We did it for the better part of a year at least once a week.  We didn't keep permanent score, just a duel of tunes and who was winning for the day.  It made the day go by faster.  It was also amazing how much people can be influenced without realizing it.
