What's your current favorite beer?

Post by Chris »

I'm currently loving the Sam Adams Black Lager...very good. Their Cream Stout is also fantastic. I've been switching off between those and Anchor's "Old Foghorn" Barleywine, which is fantastico. What are you chaps drinking?

Hello All,

Favorite is Shiner Bock, from Shiner TX. Followed closely by Boddington Ale and Old Speckled Hen, both from the UK.

Cheers and Bottoms Up!

I too really like Shiner Bock as well as Mississippi Mud.

Boddingtons here all the way!

Guiness is a close second.

Wow...you folks are a fan of all things British, eh? I must admit I am a big fan of the British stouts in a draught can. Young's double chocolate stout is fantastic...if you can get it, I highly recommend it.

I really enjoy a nice Paulaner Hefe-Weizen but I have been watching my girlish figure and drinking Miller Lite :evil:

I gotta say that my favorite beer is Guinness, but as far as domestic beers, I like Yuengling ale. I think it is brewed in somewhere in Pennsylvania. As far as local microbreweries here in Louisiana, Dixie's Blackened Voodoo and Abita Wheat are tops on the list.

Hi all,

I am a Milwaukee's Best Light fan! I know, not very up-scale or elaborate, but works for me. I look forward to "beer thirty".

Not going to tell you which hour that is: beer thirty = x:30 pm :-)

Have to have something to look forward to, right?

Ah! The Beast...we used to drink that all the time when I was in school. I moved out west and started drinking Olympia Beer. They came in those little fat brown bottles and my brother and I would have about 6 each stuffed in the backs of our fishing vest for a afternoon on the river. I'm pretty sure Olympia went out of business....too bad. Some days cheap beer just taste so good!

Yes Blackgrass,

Agree, cheap beer can taste so good and I remember Olympia beer. And when I'm in a pricy mode will go for the micro beers. We have a lot of micro brewery's here in Oregon.

Nothing like enjoying a "Terminator" or "Hammer Head" when the mood strikes. They also provide more powerful mood altering (aka getting drunk) than the light stuff. Yeah ha...

Another shiner bock fan here, actually I like most all the shiner beers, blonde, winter brew, summer stock, hefeweizen.. they're all great. Boddingtons and Guinness are pretty good too.

Those are pretty much the only beers I drink with the exception of a few local microbrews. I won't touch a budweiser, keystone, nasty light, etc with a ten foot pole, luckily here in Texas everywhere you go sells shiner. :D

Another vote for Shiner Bock. Unfortunately, we don't get it here in West Virginia. I have to depend on the kindness of friends to bring it back from their travels.

I am currently VERY fond of Smithwick's Irish Ale. It's made by Guiness, and goes down very smoothly. Full of flavor, but not heavy. Very refreshing!

Tigert, Have you tried the St. Arnold's brewery line of beers, I believe they are located in Houston. The ones I have tried have been very good quality.

Yeah st arnold is one of the local microbrews I drink, they make some very good beers. Their brewery is pretty close to where I live too so I've been on the tour a few times where they give you free beers :D

All of their beers are pretty good but I like their brown ale and the oktoberfest beer the best, their bock is good too but I prefer shiner bock.

Yes, I recently tried the Spring Bock and it was very good, but not as good as Shiner.

I've gotta say, Old Milwaukee is pretty good. MGD is next on the list.

Now, Guinness Extra Stout . . . that is some good stuff. But I think it can seem bitter cold, so I prefer it room temp. After all, there must be some reason they drink it that way in the old country. But alas, it is too expensive to drink very often. :(

Natty Light!

Thought I'd pass this along to the afficinado's. I recently found out, to my excitement, that my local Whole Foods carries local and international beers. I hadn't been able to find a 4 pint of Boddington's anywhere until now as my local stores only carry American swill i.e. Bud, Miller, Coors, and the sort. Hope this is of use to some.

1. Bitburger Pils -- Germany

2. Fuller's ESB (Extra Special Bitter) -- England

I only drink beer in the country of origin. In my opinion 99.9% of American made beer is, well, insipid swill. Wild Goose Oatmeal Stout is tolerable but I prefer wine at home.
