When I am sitting on a barstool at the tavern drinking beer, I like to listen to old school country.

Buck Owens, George Jones, Hank Sr., Johnny Horton, Junior Brown, Waylon, Merle, Willie....you get the picture.

The alternative country stuff gets played a lot at home...I especially like the Gourds' cover of "Gin and Juice."

Hard rock is good driving music, and getting stuff done around the house and garage, but not necessarily very good beer drinking music.

The Blues is more for drinking whiskey.

+1. But polka still rules all as far as beer drinking music goes. Nothing any of you guys have brought up even comes close except for old school country. That is a close second.

I have to agree with Keith, Polka is king as beer drinking music.   :)

Great southern alt-counrty dirty rock. Whatever you want to call it, Drive-By Truckers are tops on my list. I can listen to Southern Rock Opera from front to back over and over while brewing. Here's the first song I ever heard of theirs. Got me hooked.

I like to drink beer while listening to modern folk rock like M. Ward too.  But alt-country and beer are like hops in an IPA.   8)

Modern folk music sounds like jumbo shrimp and a few other oxymorons I can think of...
Not saying it's right or wrong - just .....

Nothing like a victorian-era military march with a pint of bitter:

Yea Capp...Here's some barstool sittin'...whiskey sippin', teardrops a fallin downhome roots hillbilly music. The legendary Delmore Brothers.

Here's a real classic. Al Dexter's "Pistol packin' mama"

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7uESJlJAj7g

and some rebel country by the man himself David Allen Coe.

I am a music buff and take influences from as many styles as the day is long, but country music is like the capital "A" in America. We as Americans can claim country music as our own and alot of it relates to beer drinkin'  ;)

For me, it's plenty of Buddy Guy & Junior Wells,  Flim & The BBs, Steely Dan, the fab 4, and a good amount of Procol Harum for good measure.  Especially the latter, which oddly, incorporates elements of all of the former.  Next to the fabs, probably my favorite band (and thankfully, still around after all these years making great new music!) 

I like a good dose of classical too...Bach, Chopin, and especially Handel and Liszt.  They're all dead. 
I won't hold that against them though.

Probably one of the all-around greatest guitar players to ever grace the planet. What a shame to lose such a prodigy player.

I got a little ritual music (the Earl Brothers - Moonshine) that goes back to my first or second brew session. The CD doesn't last long though so if it's a weekend I'll fill the voids by listening to NPR or watching the tele. As far as music goes it's mostly bluegrass on brew days.
hmmmmmmm....I wonder how would AC/DC effect the brew day?.............

Not a great recording, and I'm not sure what the vidoe game is all about, but this is a GREAT drinking song, and the refreshments are possibly one of the best drinking bands.
