    My dad sometimes wants me to drink beyer with him, but I only like sider?

    I suggested to him that I could just drink sider, but he usually likes to share his bottle with me, and he only likes beyer (he doesn't drink that much).

    What can I do?

    This is the definition of a first world problem.

    You could start by not spelling beer as 'beyer' and 'cider' as sider.

    I'm fairly sure that even in British English phonology, beyer would not be read the way you're suggesting. I think I'd likely read it as rhyming with layer, but the linguist in me reads it as rhyming with wire. It threw me off completely and had me wondering whether you were a Dane mistranslating bajer.

    For that reason (and not just that reason): 0/10.

    LOL

    I seriously hope you are a troll and spelt like that! Or else, the education system failed you

    It's "beer" and "cider"
