Well, seems like your choices are already made FOR you....it's accepting what you can and can't do that's probably the issue.
the light beers? draught type beers may be better than ale, lager..etc?
mixed drinks like with clammato (ugh) or the new vodka mixed in a bottle..etc (forget what they're called)?
You might find one that isn't as offensive to you. At least experimenting can have you doing the research....which in itself can be fun.
Are there smaller bottles?
The other option...you can nurse one for a long while...or maybe mix it with 7 up or something?
