Ok, the discussion in the Xmas thread got me wanting to start a thread...

Background: I turned 21 in July, and have just recently started trying different brews. I never drank a lick of alcohol until I was of age. I find great fascination with how beer is brewed, and what the end result is. I enjoy beer for the flavor, not to get drunk at a college party like so many of my uh..."friends."

So, I don't drink that often, but when I do, I always like trying new things. Personally, while I haven't tried too many beers yet, I find myself liking Irish Red Ale and English Brown Ale the most. I've tried a few traditional domestics and no thanks...I'm a craft beer drinker! :beer:

Also, I would like everyone to list their top 1 or 2 favorite beers. Also, please post a picture if you can!

So far, my #1 pick is BJ's Brewhouse Jeremiah Red:

I like dark beers with lots of flavor. Mostly drink Great Lakes Brewery varieties... Eliot Ness being my favorite. Sam Adams Boston Lager, Summer Ale, and Octoberfest for mass brewed stuff. Bud American Ale if I am going on the cheap or none of the good stuff is available.

If you are ever in Cleveland...visit GLB.

http://www.greatlakesbrewing.com/

If you are ever in Richmond, VA....go to Capital Ale House. 82 draft lines and over 400 beers from around the world stocked.....and a kick ass ice strip that runs the length of the bar to keep your brew nice and cold.

Luckily in America we had an explosion of microbreweries beginning in the early 80's. Every region seems to have a great selection of real quality brews.

I am a great fan of beer and brewed my own for many years. My favorites are quite varied with so many good ones to choose from. Sierra Nevada Pale is always a good go-to beer. Deschutes Brewery from Oregon makes great beer in their Mirror Pond Pale Ale (nice citrusy pale with Cascade hops) and a real nice Porter called Black Butte.

Pig's Ass Porter from here in Montana (Belt) is great porter that's not too heavy for a daily after-work beer. Right here in my home town of Hamilton MT we have an award-winning brewery with a large selection and they are soooo good.

There are so many it's hard to grasp. I traveled to Wisconsin earlier this year and besides the magnificent fresh cheese and sausages, the local ale Leinenkugel had some very nice varieties.

I found after brewing from grains to the glass that it's not terribly difficult to make top notch brews, therefore almost any little town with a microbrewery will have delicious beer.

Long story short, no favorite, there are too many good ones.

I can't even look at Budweiser et al anymore.

Anything light and domestic. I hate beer snobs. If you really like dark european beer, thats great, but don't choke it down to impress people. I was at the bar with some people last year (one of the three times I drank in 09) and this dude was basically saying me and everyone else who drinks bud light is inferior to him and his "whatever" beer. I could have slapped him.

If I am eating around Seattle, I like Mac & Jack's and Manny's pale ales. Both local Seattle beers.

For Mexican I go Negra Modelo, or Modelo Especial.

For grocery store buys, I like Fat Tire, Full Sail amber, and Mirror Pond

For "can get it anywhere", I like Heineken.

I also have tried the Schlafly Hefeweizen and is quite good as well.
