Favorite beer?
My most recent discovery was Primo Island Lager (made in Hawaii). :9
Best beer I've had since Germany.



Wish I had some right now. Instead, a Paulander will have to do.

1. I don't really have one favorate per se
but the one I had most recently that made me say, "Holy crap, can I buy a twelve pack of this kind, or do I have to keep buying the mix sets and just get two at a time?" was one I found in the Sam Adams winter variety pack: Sam Adams Cream Stout.

Has the oomph and hoppiness that I like, but with a very nice flavor of a few different kinds of malt to balance that out.

2. I like beer with a low alcohol content
Which is ironic for someone who drinks hard liquor the way I do. :crazy:

I'll check out that Sam Adams Cream Stout if I see it. Thanks! :hi:

3. I like mine to have some ooomph, because I started as a wine drinker before I diversified.
:)

Now I'm a fan of a nice aged scotch, or a good strong beer. Still like the wine, obviously, but its not something I drink as often anymore.

23. I like my scotch like I like my women...
old enough to vote.

Of course, I can't AFFORD scotch that old, so I have to settle for younger ones.

Can't afford women either, but I refuse to go any younger with them. :P

5. My favorite tends to change with the seasons and what I'm serving with
But if I had to choose one it would be Weihenstephan Kristall Weiss. It goes down really nicely on a blistering hot Texas day.

11. You should try a few different types
I prefer Murphy's to Guinness. Some of the Porters here in Texas are quite nice, but some are complete crap. Some other states like Colorado are starting to get into the porter business as well.

50. It does sound a little naughty. Maybe that's why we just call it "lager" in PA.
Or it could be that nobody knows how to pronounce it (or "pronounciate" as Joe the Plumber recently said).

71. From what I'm hearing, there is high demand for it.
You may not have to win the lotto to see it appear in Cali, after all! May you soon find it in a liquor store near you. ;)

26. Mothership Wit
Hi,
Hard to say my favorite, lately I have been enjoying anything produced by New Belgium Brewing Company. I particularly enjoy the Mothership Wit, plus I like the instructions on how to pour on the label.

Peace

30. Anything by Real Ale in Blanco Texas
:D

Real Ale

"You can't be a real country unless you have a beer and an airline - it helps if you have some kind of a football team, or some nuclear weapons, but at the very least you need a beer."

-Frank Zappa

46. "real ale" is a term that has a specific meaning
....however, looking at their website, it doesn't seem like they take any care to insure that their beer is actually "real ale". Here in England it's a big deal! There are different organizations dedicated to preserving real ale in the UK; they give out certification to pubs that serve real ale, have awards for breweries, pubs, beers, etc.

32. Blue Moon.
But I got pissed when I found out it is a Coors product (conveniently disguised as a microbrew).

34. Funny story about Coors
When I was about 16 or so, my mom found a partial six-pack of Coors in my room.

She promptly started reading me the riot act while my dad remained silent.

Finally my mom asked my dad if he was going to say something. He said....

"Son, don't let me ever catch you drinking that scab beer again."

33. It changes with the seasons. It's always a local microbrew, though.
An amber ale or a porter. One of the best is Mud Shark porter, brewed in Seattle.

45. it's too hard to pick one favourite
A lot of has to do on the condition of the beer, how it's served, the environment.... ugh.... in general, I really love Flemish sour ales. I can't pick a favourite. The ommegong brewery in the US makes a good one which is sometimes better than the Belgian ones, because it's more local in the US..... man.... how to choose? Can't.

84. Keystone Light.
And no, I'm not kidding. I only drink to get drunk (which is about once a month) and Keystone light is pretty much like carbonated water.

If it's a rare occasion where I'm just gonna have a beer or two I will choose Sam Adams Ale or Negro Modelo.

89. Right now, Conway's Irish Ale from Great Lakes Brewery

http://www.greatlakesbrewing.com/beerProfile.php?beer_i...

Mostly because it's seasonal, so if I don't drink it now I have to wait a year. It's addicting.

Elliot Ness Amber Lager is a close second.
Edmund Fitzgerald Porter, and Burning River Pale Ale all get a good workout in between.


Bass Ale can always be found in my fridge, though. It's the house choice.

Edited on Mon Jan-26-09 12:20 PM by Mr_leftyclimber
By Deschutes Brewery, preferably on tap with Nitro.



I haven't had one since I moved to WV. It's all the great beer that makes me miss Oregon.

edited to add




I really want to try the Abyss.
Imperial Stout aged in French oak and bourbon barrels.

97. McEwan's Scotch Ale

My source stopped selling it. So I was trying different brews. Unfortunately, the closest I came to was Quilmes Stout, sold in Argentina. Then my source carried it again. So I stocked up. Though they haven't restocked yet. I'm good for about six months, drinking one a week (average for me).
