I'm in the same boat as S^4. I don't drink beer - or alcoholic beverages in general - because I don't like the taste. Could I acquire a taste for it? Probably. I thought Diet Coke tasted foul when I was in high school, and now I quite like it. But acquiring a taste for alcohol is not something I have any interest in or desire to do. I've never felt like I needed to get drunk or even buzzed to enjoy an activity, and I have plenty of other options for something refreshing on a hot day or to wash down a meal. There are other reasons, but I won't go into those.
