Favorite Beer?

PostBy: BDHodosn On: Wed. Feb. 11, 2009 2:58 pm

Now I have been known to be rather snobbish about beer. I have brewed at home, and espouse the philosophy that life is too short to drink bad beer. Having said that I would like to point out that good beer doesn't necessarily mean it has to be expensive. Nor does it mean that expen$ive beer is always good.

Cases in point: Pabst Blue Ribbon, not expensive and adequately good for every day consumption. Corsendonk, and Abbey style ale from Belgium is quite expensive at $10-$12 per 750mL bottle that tastes to me like gym socks rinsed in a storm drain.

Opinions? I know you have them...

Just about anything from Bells Brewing in Kalamazoo MI. I have yet to find one that I didn't like.

A good Stoudt or an Amber is usually my first choice. I'm not picky on trying something, but I know what I like.

My favorite also changes with the seasons.

there is a beer that is mostly on the west coast called Anchor Steam. It is an outstanding porter. Guinness is also one of my favorites. One would taste good right now actually... :D

I will usually start with Guinness, then if I have enough money I will get more. However if I don't, the cheapest rot gut will do! toothy :beer:

You already named the best one BDhodson, PBR. Some of the microbrew stuff is really good but you cant beat PBR for the money.

I have always been a big fan of beer (read drinks too much). And I get on kicks where I will drink a brand for a while and then switch to another. But lately my kick has come from Jim Beam. I never used to drink whiskey but have taken a liking to it. So for now beer has taken a back seat and I let Mr. Beam do the driving.

Beck's Dark (on tap it out of this world) but I've been buying Yuengling "Black and Tan" lately which is quite similar and considerably cheaper. :lol:

My favorite import is Brand brewery beer, Grolsch beer, or Hieneken, all from Holland.
My favorite micro brew is Old Hat Brewery (Dusters) out of Lawton, Michigan.
It also seems that my best friend always has a good beer, or two, or three to drink when ever I visit.
