What Drink Best Says "Bass Player?"

After sitting through a questionable bottle of Vat 69 Scotch, I began to wonder: what drink best says "Bass Player?" As one cannot disassociate the electric bass from the finery of alcohol, this question is central to our existence. So let's hear it! What drink (alcoholic only) best says "Bass Player?"

Given my extensive experience with the delicious elixir, I nominate Maker's Mark Bourbon...particularly Maker's 46 if you are fortunate enough to find it!



Let the bass drinking games begin!!!

If you are going to drink whisky, drink Scotch. If you are going to drink Scotch, dont drink Johnnie Walkers.

But for a bassist, either whisky or possibly a nice ruby ale :P

S'gotta be this http://kingbobyjr.wordpress.com/201...rewing-company/

Purely because it's Primus inspired

But as a serious suggestion...I drink Scotch, damm good scotch, and I'm a bassist, ergo Scotch is a bassist's drink!! Flawless drinking logic :P

I do also like a good American Ale when Im in the right mood, at the moment having a big Sierra Nevada phase...mmmm so good

Actually Scotch was one of John Entwistle's favorite drinks!

Vodka is my go to, but I love a really good craft beer.

I think Van Halens bassist actually made the standard drink Jack Daniels, because he has a JD bass
