13. Fat Tire is also my favorite..
Sierra Nevada Pale Ale is my second favorite. Due to financial limitations I usually drink Milwaukee's Best Ice.

4. Guinness Stout
In fact, I traveled to Dublin, Ireland just so that I could sit in a pub and drink Guinness on tap.

12. I didnt' know that...oh damn...:(
Can't win them all... :( Still good stuff though, best on tap...Rolling Rock is pretty decent...for the longest time, i stayed away from budweiser, cause my pot head friends said budweiser supported keeping pot illegal, so we drank mgd for years...then I gave up mgd because of a sour/crappy tasting 18 pack....then I went too coors light, and now i'm between miller high life/keystone light, because of price... :(

37. Blue Moon is also a Coors product unfortunately
If you want a Colorado beer, gotta go with New Belgium Brewing Co. in Ft. Collins (makers of Fat Tire, among others)

45. I still have some pumpkin ale in the fridge; gotta go see who made it.
Brewed and bottled by Portland Brewing Co., Portland, Oregon.

Hope they're not evil. It's my last bottle from the 2005 fall season - three six-packs and lasts almost all year.

20. Newcastle is too thin for me
It has almost no flavor. I jokingly call it the "British Rolling Rock". :D

I need some body and flavor, dammit!

(Hey, please hand me a slice of Costco peach pie!) :P

18. Old Elephant Foot, brewed in-house at Ybor Brewing Co.
However, for everyday consumption, it's either Flying Dog Doggie Style Pale Ale or Sierra Nevada Pale Ale. Big fan of Singletrack, too. Also, anything coming out of the Dunedin Brewing Company. Used to love Ybor City Calusa Wheat, but I can't find it anymore.

If I'm entertaining a number of folks, and need it sort of on the cheap, it's Amstel Light and Heineken.

25. I see this type of thread about beer every few weeks
Edited on Sun Aug-20-06 09:03 PM by doc03
I rarely consume any alcohol myself. So why is it that if I go to my local Kroger store they don't stock a lot of these beers that are supposed to be so great. Just who is buying all that Bud and Millers that nobody says they would touch? I have found that after a couple most anything is drinkable. I have bought a six pack of Sam Adams a couple times and it was like what we used to call skunk beer and I ended up pouring it down the sink. Maybe the reason was that it had set on the shelf so long it was really skunk beer???? I believe Sam Adams in this area is actually made by the Iron City Brewery and I doubt anyone on here would touch that swill. Myself I think Iron City is better than most of the big brand name stuff, it has some flavor to it.

28. We had a blindfolded beer tasting contest once
The end result was that nobody could tell the European or Mexican beers apart, but we could tell the difference between these beers and American brands (Budweiser, Schlitz, Old Milwaukee, Miller).

The kicker is that the control was plain water with a few drops of liquid detergent and nobody could tell the difference between this concoction and the American beers.

Go figure. :shrug:

I think it in particular is tasteless but hey it's the biggest seller go figure.

52. Really? Because there's nothing more American than supporting your local
microbrew. Way more American than drinking that watered-down, mass-produced crap Anheiser-Busch tries to pass of as beer. ;-)

And the reason you don't see them so much in your local grocery store (althoug that is changing, thank the stars) is that the big distributors that stock the stores don't carry the microbrews--but they're all beginning to. People are discovering how good beer can really be, and good old economics is doing the rest (supply & demand).

30. leinie's sunset wheat is really good.
not a big fan usually, but sunset wheat is a great, fruity summer beer.
my fave bottled beers- three floyds alpha king, bell's oberon.
but the best is goose island on tap, at the brewpub.

53. that's what I'm drinking now, as luck would have it
It's not bad. I wouldn't want to drink it all night, but it's nice for a change of pace.

I really like the Leine's Oktoberfest--can't wait til that one hits the shelves again :toast:
