53. You don't need a marketing team when your product speaks for itself.

I'd rather spend a dollar or two more to get a real beer like Sierra Nevada Stout, or Great Lakes Edmund Fitzgerald Porter.

If you insist on drinking a lager, try Great Lakes Dortmunder Gold. Samuel Adams makes good Lagers like their Boston Lager and their Noble Pils. When you drink them you know you are drinking an honest beer. No chemical enhancers, no rice, no bullshit.

62. Here, here!

I believe you forgot the good Brooklyn Lager, and Brooklyn Pilsner. Yuengling and Genesee also make local lagers.
Not that I like lagers, but I had to mention some from here in the Northeast, and give a shout out to my old home town, Brooklyn.
Brooklyn was once the beer capital of the US. Before prohibition, about 10 percent of the beer in the US was made there.
Not any more.
I am glad and proud that there are now more choices, and that the local small brewery/pup is coming back to every corner of the US, where you can get fresh beer, made by local people.

(just the ones that I could think of off the top of my head, and the ones where I know the brewers)

68. Founders, Three Floyds, Schlafly, Bells, and Great Lakes are my midwestern favorites.

We have Magic Hat here, and I think we have Ommegang. Schlafly used to make a good ESB.


Great Lakes, Founders, and Anchor make very good Porters.

I wish we could get Smuttynose here.


Mackeson Triple Stout is available again. It is made in Trinidad now, and I think it is much better than the Hudepol version.

32. They really are magnificant. My grandfather had work horses, and when I say these

beautiful clydedales made his look like ponies, its not an understatement. Simply gorgeous. As far as hating on the beer and all corporation evilesque thing going on in some of the threads, I wonder if they would even be around as a breed or how many children would get to experience seeing this wonderful breed at fairs if Budweiser didn't support the horse as its mascott. They are so large and would take much more feed for the average farmer to keep around as a practical work horse. They are a bit too big for riding, but they seem to be bread as a gentle flower lingering in a mammoth beast. Perhaps because they are bread to be around lots of people and kids wanting only to touch them or watch them in a parade going by.

My grandfather would pull his work horses in fairs around NE, he had a bit of "weight" on the fair circuit. The best thing he got us in on was going to the clydesdale barn, getting in and around the horses, and being allowed to feed some treats to a few of them. It was quite unusual to be allowed that "in" with them (insurance and safety issues and all), but we were "horse people", on top of work horses, posing for pics before we could walk, so we were allowed that special treat. It was amazing. Best little girl high. I wish my grandpa had lived longer, now I would love to "take over" that horse farm, but at 12, no one in the "in between" generation wanted to keep up with the working farm. I miss being around horses.. They simply are wonderful and have their own special personalities and eyes that literally see into your soul and make you refelct-- it is about as close to a "god" experience I have ever felt in my life... that and when you find that one horse that has that special connection, that you don't even need to saddle before hopping onto its back from a large tree stump or off the side of a fence and taking off in a gallop over the fields... That feeling of freedom and the trust between that horse to keep you safe at 10 yrs old and too foolish for your own good, is simply, breathtakeningly amazing.

54. No, I'm not, but thank you. I've always wanted to be able to write like writers can...

I love books and being taken to another place, land, or reality. Having the picture in my mind as the pages turn page by page. I absolutely love "fantasy" type novels... The one's with magic, horses, knights, some sort of mystery and challenge.. I absolutely love the "movie" that the writer can real me in on in my mind. It's like I'm standing there watching a movie... Sometimes, I really don't like books that have been made into movies because my mind had a different picture of the set and the characters and the importance of certain scenes.

I'm sorry to make you cry... My love for horses is about as strong as my love for VT (even though I don't own any now or live in VT anymore- LOL). But they are the first memories that I have and my first parts of love. If I won the lottery, I would move to NC and buy a small horse farm. (FL is too hot for enjoying a mid-summer's night ride out under the stars & VT is too cold to wake up before dawn and go out into the cold to do chores plus my husband's family live in NC, so it would be a win-win).
