You sir, Mr. "Favorite beer" questioner, are a provocateur and a traitor to the gender !
Nowhere did I mention that you were limited to your favorite. That's marriage in the Judeo-Christian world. I asked what your favorite was. The beer you'd grab if you had the world's selection at your fingertips. Which beer are you reaching for first?
I am a fan of good lagers and pilseners. Doesn't mean that I don't grab and IPA or Bass now-and-then. Me likey the black & tan (just don't order one in a real Irish bar in South Boston or any pub in Ireland).
Oh, and I'm also a huge fan of the Penn Brewery on the N. Side in the City of Champions. I'd pay Tom to live there as long as he made his brewmaster teach me.
When I reach into the world's cooler the forst thing I come out with is likely Pilsener Urquell
! The world's finest true pilsener from those 14th century open fermentation vats. After that I could see myself sampling the finest Abbey Beers from the low countries.
