O.K. lets cut to the chase. Beer seems to be a reaccuring theme in some of the posts lately. So, what are your favorite beers in order of preference. Mine are

1. Murphey's Stout
2. Youngs Double Chocolate Stout
3. Breckenridge Brewery's Oatmeal Stout

I really like Guinness but I'm not sure where I'd put it. It depends on my tastes for the day.

I can't believe you aren't on DOGBOLTER

Another handout:

"While brewing an Earthstopper (approx. 7.5%) in the cellar brewhouse, David Bruce heard the telephone ring, so he clambered upstairs in his wellies to answer it. The call was longer than expected and by the time he returned the brew was no longer strong enough to be the notorious Earthstopper. He decided to make the best of his mistake and announced in the bar that there was no Earthstopper but that a 'new' beer was to be launched by the name of Dogbolter (5.6–6.0%).

The name has in fact been in the family for many years, ever since David's favourite uncle in Yorkshire had inflicted more than a few pints of an equally strong brew on some friends. Walking home through the wet and windy night they slipped off the path, slithered into the beck and gave such a shriek that both their dogs took fright and bolted onto the moors, not to be seen again until morning.

Customers so enjoyed Dogbolter that David Bruce had to formulate a special recipe to match his mistake and it has been brewed ever since in each of the Firkin brewpubs."

Dogbolter brewkits are available in most of the pubs. They are manufactured by EDME for the Firkin chain. The original Dogbolter recipe seems to have come about from the over-sparging of malt for Earthstopper, which had an OG of 1075.
Oh yeah, and....muncher.

Hey I'm Canadian there's no such thing as a bad beer, it's in our blood kind of like hockey. Now to take the cultural stereotype one step further I'm also of Irish decent.
Oh I forgot to mention...I AM

It's even got a bicycle on the label. Lessee, uh Pilsener Urquell is excellent on tap/when fresh. Practically anything from Belgium particulary Chimay. Anyone try Duvel? That is one quick slide into an alcoholic coma. Verrry treacherous drinking but fun never the less.
More woof beers....muncher.

Yuk, stout! Dark beer makes me ill. I tend to like pilsners and amber/Oktoberfest pale ales. IPAs, too. Sometimes I get in the mood for a Hefeweizen. But dark? No way.

My favorites come from some of the many Microbreweries in the SF Bay Area. In no particular order:

1. Los Gatos Brewery Pilsner or Oktoberfest. Used to make a great lager years ago.

2. Gordon Biersch Marzen. Good Pilsner, too. These guys have opened other restaurants around the country, but the original is in Palo Alto.

3. E & O Trading Company. So many good choices here. IPA, Pilsner, Amber. It's all good. Locations in San Francisco and San Jose.

even a Budweiser is gonna taste REALLY GOOD. But given a preference it would be a Corona. With a lime, of course.

Even cheap, watered down beer like Bud or Coors tastes magnificent when chilled properly. Yes, even in a can.

Try this at your next summer BBQ:

Take a garbage can, fill it half full of ice, half full of beer. Stir. Let stand for 4-12 hours. Serve.

The trick is that you want the beer to be ice cold but not frozen. People should be reaching down through frigid water, risking frostbite to find a can or bottle. At that temperature, any beer is good. Might as well save some money and go cheap! That means more money for more beer!

It's all good, some is just better than others. My preference would have to be a good strong IPA, the kind that leaves that wonderful bitter aftertaste. Damn, I'm drooling on my keyboard now.

1) Guinness
2) Gritty McDuff's Halloween Ale- It's a bitter, only bad part is that it's seasonal
3) Magic Hat #9 or Harpoon IPA

Of course, free beer is the best kind no matter what type.
Beer is gross. Mikes Hard Lemonade rocks! (nm)Kristin

Most of the people posting here are men, and by our official rules, specifically rule 37a sec. 14- No man shall drink any beer alternative as outlined in rule 75 sec. b: IE- Zima, wine coolers, etc. Any deviation from this rule will result in verbal abuse from one's peer group and questioning of his manhood and sexuality.

This rule is based on the same priciples of why some men feel superior by riding on Record gruppos and Italian bikes with strange sounding names.

So we will have to ask you to refrain from singing the praises of any beverage that is not beer. Thank you for your cooperation.

PS- Joke- if there was any question ;)

It's great to live in this age of great variety in brews. Remember the dark old days when you could count out your choices on your fingers and toes. Of course good beer would have been wasted on me then. Ahhhh... youth. Oh but to tie one on like the old days and yak all over my friend's rose bushes again. Bottoms up to all of you during the holidays.

My tastes vary by season. Lately I've been drinking Belgian triples. I'm enjoying the Bornem triple, but it's not a beer for poolside on a sunny day. At 9% abv, it packs a punch. I also like Piraat Ale from Belgium, but at 10.5% abv, it can be a bit overwhelming if you're not ready for it.
Here they are!look271

1) Guiness (is there even a question?)
2) Yuengling Black& Tan (If you aren't from PA, you've probably never heard of it. USA's oldest brewery)
3) Bass Ale or Heineken. Tied. Might put in Yuengling Porter, too, depending on my mood!
No, not all free beer is good. Budweiser s*&ks even if it's free!
