Re: Beer drinkers, what do you like?

Oooh, thanks for reminding me about Shiner Bock, I got to liking it when they sponsored Robert Earl Keen's concert tour. I need to find some more of that stuff around here! Haven't drank it in a while.

Negro Modela is great stuff, too, very refreshing with all this humidity.

Funny you should say that. I haven't had time in a few years to be active (kids and all), but I happen to be a certified, National-ranked beer judge. I am not making this up, as Dave Barry would say. Supporting evidence: www.bjcp.org I actually had to take a multi-hour written exam.

I prefer Waterloo Dark and Guiness.

If that's not available I'll take Molson Canadian or the Canadian version of Bud.

So would you favor an overlooked highly-discounted deep-value beer, a popular high-growth yet volatile beer, or a stodgy large-cap blue-chip brew?

Or would you invest in your own private offerings?

Re: Beer drinkers, what do you like?

When traveling, I usually go to a local microbrewery/brew-pub type of place and try their stuff. Most I have tried usually had an outstanding brew or two.

Of the bottled beer I occasionally buy - the most recent really good one was Spaten Optimator. I had forgotten how wonderful that beer is.

I really like double bocks. My husband likes stouts and porters.

My favorite bottled beer of all time - "Wee Heavy" by Bellhaven Brewery in Scotland. I only occasionally see it on the shelf.

We don't like yellow (golden) stuff or wheat beer......

Mostly private stock. Where else can you get a pint of beer fresher and at least as well made as most brewpub offerings for 30 cents?

If I buy beer, there are lots of things Ilike, but if I had to pick just a few, I think highly of Unibroue's stuff (Quebecois brewery) and almost anything Dogfish Head makes is great.

I should think Brewer would prefer the beer shippers...Freightliner, Mercedes...

Re: Beer drinkers, what do you like?

Fat Tire amber ale brewed and bottled by New Belgium Brewing, Fort Collins, CO USA

As a bud man I always thought beer was beer until I tried this. I'm willing to pay $7.99 a six pack but some of the Costcos offer a case in the low $20's.

When I was with family in Jamica my Aunt was buying so much jewelery that when someone mentioned leaving to get a drink we were all quickly served ice cold Red Stripes. The store owner apologized about the beer so much I assumed it was the local cheap beer. It was funny to see 6-8 people walking around sipping beers in a jewelery store. It was cold and good!

Re: Beer drinkers, what do you like?

I am a pilsner fan. Favorites are:

Grolosh
Warsteiner
Becks
Ching tao
Sapporo

Of course none of the above are in the fridge.....yet.

Re: Beer drinkers, what do you like?

Consumer Reports rated Natural Light as one of the best, and I usually drink that (drinking one right this very second, in fact).* Safeway often has specials of that for $11.99 for 30 cans, which is the best beer deal I've seen anywhere.

Re: Beer drinkers, what do you like?

When traveling, I like to check out the local microbrews, too. At home, I like Molson and Sam Adams and Blue Moon on draft.

Re: Beer drinkers, what do you like?

1st choice:* free
2nd choice:* cold

...But you wanted the brand!

I very much like Pilsner Urquel from the Czech Republic.* Very much!* Top choice.

After that, Grolsch from Holland and Sam Adams lager.

In Canada, I like Keith's better than most. *Molson Canadian after that because I love it that they are Coors now. *(Remember the "I am a Canadian!" TV ads? * *)

I like Pacifico for a Mexican beer.* It always reminds me of a vacation in Mazatlan and it is an OK beer, too.* In-country, I like Indio (partly because it is in-your-face aboriginal in a country that looks down on indians, but it also tastes good).

In Denmark, Tuborg green or Faxe ("Brewers to the Danish people!"--it tickles my Mark Twain-style anti-monarchist feelings, which make me feel guilty because I have a fondness for some of the Danish monarchs).

I enjoy both beer and politics.

Gypsy

Re: Beer drinkers, what do you like?

Best beer? Other than the "Lites" there was hardly a beer anywhere in the world I didn't like. Depends on the ambience. Silvertop tasted just great in the company of a cute coed back in PA college in the 60's. Although my DW is pretty cute also, I would gag on it today. Iced Corona on boat docked at a Southern marina can't be beat. A local microbrew at a steakhouse is the ticket, Ichiban at a Japanese steakhouse etc. Heck, there is even a time and place for "cherry beer" (Dorr County, WI in the Fall to wit).

My daily swill is Amberboch as I think it is the best value if you really like to taste beer. I treat myself to Sam Adams from time to time.

Re: Beer drinkers, what do you like?

Sam Adams my basic favorite. I like beers with some flavor, "red" ales and the like, but Guinness and Murphy's can't be beat in the wintertime.

For those with similar tastes, check out Boddington's ale and Old Speckled Hen. Yum!

Beer isn't a big seller here; we got Moretti and Nastro Azzurro plus some imports like Heineken & Becks. Guinness in the aerator cans is sometimes seen, but light lagers are 99% of the market.

Re: Beer drinkers, what do you like?

Also my new thing is to never drink from a can or bottle, since that way I miss the aroma aspect. I also make sure to pour such that I get a generous head. (behave!)

Also, since retired, I try to almost always have a beer with lunch.
