i always get hangovers with beers, some worst than others

bud/carlsberg/miller = agony
paulander/hoegarden/erdinger = bearable hangovers.

whiskey = no hangovers.

that being that's that only goes for me and everyone else is probably different.

The best way to avoid hangovers with anything is to drink clever. Take your time (what's the point if you can't enjoy the flavour of your tipple?), drink water between pints (you may pee more but you won't dessicate your brain), don't mix drinks unless you know they compliment eachother (whiskey and stout work very well for me, but everyone'll have their own thing).

Guinness can be ok on the head but 'sore' elsewhere

heineken is the only one that gives me a hangover. Fosters gives me wicked heartburn though. Guiness no bother apart from plastering the toilet.

According to the charter it's required.

Oh well, I tried. Enjoy your hangovers.

Sensible is encouraged on this forum.

Non-sensible advice will be frowned upon.

Hmmm, I find Ales to be the best for me, so if I'm a normal "local" I'll stick to Smithwicks, or Macardles if they have it.

I cannot mix Guinness and Cider. Eugh.

Crappy lagers too, can't drink them.

Coors Light is a killer, needless to say have stayed away from it for a long long time now!

Logically, it should be beers with less preservatives. In Australia, Coopers would be a good candidate for no or little hangover. I find Heineken bottles to be particularly bad. Peroni on the other hand is no real prob. Realistically the damage is done through dehydration. If you're pissing more than you're drinking, you're gonna have a problem. If you have a couple of pints of water before bed and a neurofen if your head is starting to hurt, you will be fine. Same applies for wine. The cheaper the wine, the worse the head, broadly speaking.

The worst hangovers I've experienced were from Heineken sessions, sore heads with that muck.

Coors Light isn't too bad for me, easier on the stomach than Bulmers.

I love Warsteiner, but have yet to find a local bar which sells it over the counter.
