I am in my late 20's, and over the past 4 years I have been getting serious headaches/hangovers from the stronger IPA's, but, when it is time to tie one on via beer, I always reach for a Two Hearted Ale. Or six.
My hot weather beers are: Modelo Especial, Corona Extra and Leinie's Summer Shandy (weak... I know.) I can't help it after a hot day.
Whatever you like, drink it up and designate a driver. Hopefully we drink to celebrate some road wins, and a Bengals win over Miami.
It's against Man Law to make fun of someone else's beer of choice and then freely admit to drinking Summer Shandy.
But I digress...
I used to think it was novel to stock my fridge with more-expensive, non-mainstream beers until I realized no one gives a damn and I didn't really like them. Now I'm 41 years old, spending gobs of money to support the activities of four children, so I'm all about more ounces per dollar. Give me a case of cold PBR and I'm a happy guy - plus none of my neighbors steal it on poker night. (If I lived in Ohio, it would be a no brainer: Yuengling. I didn't think I'd buy into the hype, but truth be told, I love it.)
Lastly, I echo your sentiment: life's too short. Don't drink beer that inflicts pain!
