I didn't see a thread like this already, so I figured I might start one. A bulk of my co-workers and I make it to a bar with 200some different beers each friday.
(Please, this is about good tasting beer, not a "Holy crap I can get a 30pack for $7.99" thread. As an addictions counselor, I think ill get personally offended if it becomes so.)
Some of the more interesting ones that I've tried...

Samuel Smith Oatmeal Stout (English)
Delirium Tremens - Kind of sick that it was named after alcohol withdrawl, but hey, its good!
Guiness, of course
Victory Devil Hop Pale ale

Surely I hope to add more next week :)

I would imagine Sam Adams Utopias MMII is a good beer.









It damned sure better be since it costs $100 a bottle!

I hit up a bunch of American Stouts this weekend and found New Belgium 1554 to be fantastic, as is Sierra Nevada Stout (the Port was ok). Pyramid and Shiner make good Hefe-weizens. Many of the true Belgian Ales are way off the beer scale for me, just too complicated. Nostradamus and Delirum Nocturnum are good examples. Newcastle Brown and JW Dundee Honey Brown are good dark ambers.

I enjoy a lot of bottled beers, including, but not limited to:
Michelob Amber Bock
Fat Tire
Anchor Steam
Kilt Lifter
Pyramid Heffeweizen

But I'm lucky enough to have a Rock Bottom Brewery within walking distance of my house, and their handcrafted beers are the best.

Very picky about my beer: Corona with extra lime.

Even pickier about my wine: I only like sweet ones. Thus far, I have found three kinds, all from local vineyards.

For some odd reason I just love that Andre Mimosa Royale $3 champage;g

I like about all hard liquors;f If I can't drink 'em straight, I mix 'em;)

Yep Duvel along with Nostradamos or any of the Val Dieu, sit right on my list of fine ales. Great to drink but very pricey for everyday consumption.

That's why i only drink Duvel on rare occasion. It goes down soooooo smooth, then makes ya look like this^7 Never had a beer creep up on me and hit me like Duvel does;g No wonder why it's named Devil;N ;f

In order:
[list=1]
Alaskan Amber, from Alaska Brewery
Saranac Adirondack Amber
Beamish Stout
Guiness
Yeungling Lager
Danish Dynamite (found in small tavern near Salisbury, England)
Corona
[/list=1]

At various times, the positions on the list will move up and down, primarily due to the weather. But those are pretty much it for me. Anything else is just for variety.

Just look at all the beers you have been promised;)

BTW, I will buy the first Corona:cool:

Newcastle Brown Ale (from the U.K., but easy to find in the U.S.) Best beer I've ever had!!! If you like beer, you have to try it. Brown and smooth, with a little sweetness. As a Yorkshireman once told me, "It's mother's milk, it 'tis!"

Fat Tire Ale (from Ft. Collins Brewery in Colorado)

McEwan's India Pale Ale

Old Speckled Hen (U.K.)

Black Sheep (hard to find in U.S., but if you are in the north of England around Yorkshire -- it's brewed in Masham -- it is awesome!)

Guinness. Any of the Scottish, English, or German stuff.

MMmmmm....Beer....... ;c
I'm somewhat partial to Weiss beers, the best being Erdinger, Paulaner, and surprisingly Sam Adams Weiss. Its the only non-Bavarian brewery to do weiss beer right, IMHO. The first I've only found in Germany but the latter two are readily available here. The U.S. version of Paulaner tastes a little different than the European brew, but tasty nonetheless.
As far as traditional lagers are concerned, Sam Adams Boston lager is defintely my favorite.

I've seen a few people mention Anchor Steam, is that a regional microbrew? I've never seen it here in my neck of the woods, but considering the number of mentions here, I think I'd like to give it a try.

I enjoy Blue Moon and Dos Equis w/lime. Then if not that Bud is it

02-06-2004, 15:16
Pretty much any malt liquor, in 40 oz. bottles of course.

Mickey's, Olde English, Colt 45 are my usuals.

I discovered it on a trip to St. Louis, and I've loved it ever since.

Very crisp, refreshing, and easy to drink. Plus, those swing-top bottles are cool as hell!

I also like...

Guinness (my favorite... wish I had one right now ;V)
Hoegaarden White
Negra Modelo
Bass
Molson Light
Bitburger

I try to avoid any domestic brews if at all possible. Rolling Rock is the one exception I can think of at the moment...

noway
02-11-2004, 07:18
I just Add 'Old Hooky" ale to my list.

Very crisp light body ale in a 16.9fl oz bottle. (It's British)

Very similiar to the Fischer Traditional amber ale but with a more prounounced taste.

My Favorite: Foster's lager.

My most hated: Rolling Rock - barf!

I gotta vote for Samuel Smith's Winter Warmer, Dead Guy Ale from Rogue River, and best of all a black and tan made with Gunness and Bass Pale Ale.;c

JerryWahid
02-19-2004, 18:20
The Belgian ales rock...
Particularly I like Chimay, Maredsous, St. Bernardius (sp), and an American one called Allagash is mighty tasty.
Spaten Optimator was mentioned...that is also lovely. Try Elephant if you like Optimator.

Beer is good. To name all the good beers is impossible.

rottglocken
02-23-2004, 15:07
JerryWahid, what the hell is that thing in your avatar????!

Agree on the Allegash. Blue Moon isn't bad either, for a domestic. Also, Samuel Adams' Spring brew (just released, can't remember the exact name, but it is a Belgian wheat brew).

JerryWahid
02-23-2004, 21:07
That thing in my avatar is from the Quiznos commercial.

Back to beer...while at the Flying Saucer here in houston I tried another beer that was pretty good. It is called Ommegang and it is brewed in Cooperstown. Yum.

That and Guinness
Anchor Steam
Newcastle
I think thats all I drank but I can't be sure...my memory of the incident is kind of hazy;g ;a

02-24-2004, 15:36
In no particular order:

Sam Adams Summer Ale

I am a beer advocate . (www.beeradvocate.com)I'm also new here to Glock Talk so forgive me if I ask newbie questions, i'll try to read up before I ask ...


I love DogFish Head Beers , made in Delaware ...Shelter Pale Ale is friggin' awesome all-around brewski .
I like Penn Brewery beers, made in Pittsburgh . the new Penn Marzen is another simply awesome all-around staple beer .

And when budget allows, I love Belgian beers like St. Bernardus abt 12 and Duvel and Bornem dubbel and so on ...

I could go on and on but trust me, I love good beer .
I haven't had anything like Budweiser or Coors in years.
It tastes like crap to me anymore .

The small-batch made beers are where it's at !

I'm sorry to say that I don't/can't drink alcohol any more but that hasn't stopped me from these two non-alcoholic beers that are pretty darn good (I don't like most of them).

Back in the day it is pretty hard to beat draft Bass Ale for nationally available beers, but I did love a lot of draft micro-brews. On a super hot day, its all good, even Coors.

I don't know if this beer was mention but I ran across it a few weeks ago, "Abita Amber" It is a great ale produce right here in the USA.


Very smooth and a great light ale.

Remander
02-28-2004, 23:37
Abita makes several good beers. The brewery is located near New Orleans, Louisiana. Purple Haze and Turbo Dog (dark) are great.

Good thing that I can find it right here in the So FLa area. I looking at trying their red ale and hope it is just as good as their Amber.

Panqster ale is a very good slight sweet Belgian style Ale, bottle in the state and is quite tasty.

{Purple Haze and Turbo Dog (dark) are great.}

I tried the turbodog and it wasn't all that great in my opinion. The purple haze is definetely not on my todo list.

Ah, yes. Another vote for the Arrogant Bastard. Never a cooler bottle, either.
