Just curious as to the different favorite beer brands out there. Some of mine are: (From my Seattle days)
1)Redhook (IPA,ESB,Blackhook,Winterhook)
2)Alaskan Amber
3)Full Sail Ale
4)Pike Place Market XXXXX Stout
5)Thomas Kemper

I'm kinda like Bubba from Forrest Gump. I have had just about every type of beer there is to have. Always looking for new ones. I also make my own. Is it beer:30 yet? What about you?

Locally I usually drink Labatt's Blue Light or Newcastle. Gotta have a few Fat Tires when visiting the west... can't find it anywhere around here for some reason.

Oh and the semi-official beer of my ski club is Mic Light. Not sure how that happened, but that's what the cooler is usually full of. I don't think I've ever heard anyone complain when it's full, we just get to work on it!

Began life on Watneys Stout. Hard to find so in the late 80's switched to Guinness. I have always been a one beer guy. Coors if it is near oil change time (synthetic). :D

Normally cheap light beer (natural light), but I do like Corona, Tecata, Pacifica, and several Belgium beers you cannot get here (Jupiler, Stella Artois, Maes Pils and for a one beer limit, Duvel 10-12%).

College days were full of Blatz, Weideman, Red/White and BLue, Milwaukee's best, Ballentine, Goebel, and many other beers from the far corner of the beer shelf!

Coors Light on for the norm

Other than that Shiner Bock, Stella, Tecate, and Sol.

I make the stuff, too.

I've got Dos Equis in the keg right now. I got lazy and didn't have time to brew before having a party, so I just bought a 1/2 barrel of the stuff. I've got an IPA kit that I'm looking for some time to brew (have been for a while). Hope the yeast is still good. Pacifica Clara's good, too.

Fat Tire or New Belgium's 1554 is good. Love the Anchorsteam, too. Shiner Bock or their Hefeweizen is a good standby. If it's cheap you want, Lone Star will do in a pinch.

Sierra Nevada Pale Ale

Sam Smith's Nut Brown, Oatmeal Stout or Imperial Stout.

Dogfish Head 60 min. IPA is nice.

And so many more.

Anyone else getting thirsty?

When you've said B-U-D-W-E-I-S-E-R, you've said it all. :toast:

Try Michelob Amber Bock on tap. That stuff is smooooth.

For a great stout, try Bare Knuckle Stout (draught only as far as I know.) :toast:

Someone mentioned Mic Light. I don't pick it up much but that just might be the best domestic light beer ever brewed.

And when the budget just won't budge... it's Natty Light to the rescue! :toast:

you did what, that stuff cost 8.00 a case in Texas, I know its at least 6.00 a six pack out east. Controll yourself, It's ok but not to buy. If you want Texas stick with pearl or Shiner. Pearl is now made with Lonestar though.

Yes. It's a very good light beer. Most people dont realize that Bud Select IS a light beer. 3.1 grams of carbs and something like 95 calories. I prefer Bud Light to Bud Select. Bud Select was made to compete with LITE. In my humble opinion, Select is better than LITE but then, I think LITE tastes like dog piss. No, I haven't had dog piss recently.

Then there's the issue that Miller Brewing is no longer an American Owned company. SABMiller is the parent company and the SAB stands for South African Brewing. They are, however, based out of the UK.
Personally, my beer dollars will stay in the USofA.

A friend of mine lived in D.C. several years back. He told me about a place called the Austin Grill that had Lone Star and Shiner on tap for $6.75 per pint. I laughed!

OK, now I'm really thirsty after reading this thread, and it's 9:00 in the morning! I agree, when is it going to be "beer:30"!

My "regulars":
Guinness in the winter
Newcastle in the fall/spring/winter
Bass Ale in the Summer
Hocker Pschorr Weiss in the summer/fall
Other favorites:
Sam Smith Oatmeal Stout, Nut Brown Ale, Taddy Porter, Imperial Stout
Watney's stout
Spaten Optimator
Gosser dark
Paulaner or Hocker Pschorr Oktoberfest
I've had Warsteiner Dunkel back in the day as well, very good beer!
My current favorite is Moose Drool Brown Ale. The wife discovered this one on a trip to Montana (where it is brewed). Probably the best brown ale I've ever had, and I've had a lot!
There is a bar here called Old Chicago that prided themselves on having the widest beer selection. If you drank 110 different ones, you got your name on the wall. My friends and I are on there a few times!

We can now get Smithwick's in the keg or bottle here. If your ever in Indy, stop by Shallo's brewhouse on the south side. They claim to have the largest selection in the Midwest. I'm not sure if they do, but they sure have at least a couple of hundred.

Fat Tire can be purchased west of the Mississippi. I get mine in St Louis

Anyone ever had Olympia Dark? I had it at the brewery in Oly, sure was good. I can't find it anywhere else.

You are right, actually I did have a Stella on tap recently here at the local pub. It was good, but believe it has to be pasteurized to make it over here and in Belgium it isn't. Fat tire is an American beer that isn't pasteurized as well. My local beer stores do not have Stella, only Delirium Tremors and a couple of strong dark beers.

You can get Stella here all day long Leroy and it's great on tap...

You won't find Oly any more. After many years of brewing, they went out of business.

As a kid growing up in Houston, I remember my dad drinking Lone Star & Shiner. Then in my 20s living in Seattle, I drank about anything as long as their was a lot of it, Rainier, Bud, Miller, etc.

I must have gotten old. I can't drink any of that pi$$ anymore. Red Hook ESB, Pyramid Hefeweizen or Alaskan Amber from the grocery store.

I've had instant headaches with wine, but I still like it on occasion.

Right now in my fridge I have Grolsh, Sam Adams, and Sapporo. I'm out of Warsteiner (my fav). You can only get real beer at the liquor store in Oklahoma, and it costs a fortune. Good thing I only drink 1 a day.
On a related note, if any of you are in Nassau, and you see some stuff advertised as the national beer of the Bahamas (can't remember the name), avoid it like the plague.

Friend has used it, says it only works up to the point where you vomit, then the hang overs were back.

I heard a radio spot this week for an anti-hangover product. It may have been called Chaser, sounded like a charcoal tablet to filter out the impurities. Said to have one with the first drink and another later in the eve. Sold at drugstores like cvs, walgreens. I don't know if they work or not, but I'll probably try one out sometime.
Anybody tried this stuff?

In my experience, chaser is pretty much worthless. I think it's just antiacid. ICBW. I have better luck drinking a bunch of water and taking a multivitamin before I go to bed.

So where does the basketball coach buy his beer?

Cool! A beer thread.

I like Fat Tire, but haven't been able to find it in MN. I heard it might be coming back, though. Anyone heard this?

My favorite is Gordon Biersch, a brewpub/brewery in California and other places Western. A Marzen fresh from the tap is a wonderful thing!! I have to pay about $75 ($27 shipping) to get a case of bottles (not as good) from an online beer store. Ouch!!

I recently tried Alaskan Amber and that was very tasty. I got some excellent Steelhead Scotch Porter from the online beer store also.

I recently moved from the Twin Cities to a smaller community and the beer selection at the local liquor stores is pretty sad!! :(

Kalik, the official nasty beer of the Bahama's.

You should try an Abita Turbo Dog on draft.

Just moved to Denton, TX from the Northeast Louisiana area and I’m going to miss all the Abita Beer’s especially Abita Amber. Guess I will have to start drinking Shiner Bock.

We have Phat Tire here in Chicago and the surrounding burbs. It isn't bad...don't like it enough to keep a 12 pack on hand. The bottles are about $3.00 each at the local Cardinal Liquor Store.

I'm a Mich. Ultra fan myself. Bud light is my 2nd choice. Got a hold of some Schlitz Malt liquor when I was 16. Spent the next 4 hours in the gray bar hotel!:D :mad: It's no fun calling dear ole dad to come to the slammer to get you out!:o :(

If you read the instructions on the chaser you take one with a glass of water after every drink. If I drank a glass of water after every drink, I'd never get hungover (or drunk) in the first place.:rolleyes:
