    What other beer

    Which of these are possible? I'd use number 1 but I could imagine that some of the other possibilities might also work.

    What other beer brands would you like to taste after...
    1 drinking your Heineken?
    2 having drunk your Heineken?
    3 you have drunk your Heineken?
    4 you will have drunk your Heineken?
    5 you finish your Heineken?
    6 you will finish your Heineken?
    7 your finishing of the Heineken?
    8 your finished Heineken?
    9 you're finished with the Heineken?
    10 being finished with the Heineken?

    Re: What other beer

    I prefer #1, being short n to the point.
    I am not a teacher or a native speaker.

    10 being finished with the Heineken? Grammatical but unnatural.
    Of those, I prefer the first. However, I would probably say "Which other beers would you like to try after Heineken?"
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
