All right, since my last topic was about energy drinks, I decided to make a new topic about the complete opposite (well, the health implications are still there.. but I digress). What are your favorite beers? It could be based on taste, effect, cost, calorie count (*ahem*), guilty pleasures.

I like the taste of Heineken, Corona, and Asahi, but I lean towards Budlight if I'm being "diety" (even though it seems like most people don't even count this as real beer). I'm always curious about other drinks out there. Must. Find...

I don't always drink beer, but when I do, I prefer Dos Equis.

#3 Posted by Phatmac (5686 posts) -

I like Corona and some Lone Star when I used to live in Texas.

Sam Adams, St. Pauli Girl, Blue Moon, Red Stripe. Yeungling or Killians if im feeling a little cheap. But my favorite has got to be a local brew (NC) by the name of Red Oak.

I enjoy the "golden" beers as they have this bready taste. The dark ones have this... I can't even describe it. But mayhaps, it's too bitter for me?

I didn't really like beer before I went to Japan. Then I found Asahi<3 So I guess Asahi is my favorite. Before that I would drink Shinerbock occasionally.

I really don't like most beers. I don't mind Blue Moon and some import Scottish brews but outside of that I'm mainly a hard cider (woodchuck) or hard liquor guy. Sometimes I just stop giving a fuck about what people think and drink things like Loopy which is vodka that taste EXACTLY like fruit loops.

Honestly, the best thing to do on a night out is find a local microbrewery and get a flight, to try all the local seasonal beers. If you live in a big city, you can have a new beer every time you go out. It's lots of fun.

If drinking out is a no-go, Yuengling is my solid. It's the best of the "cheap" beers. I usually drink that when I'm staying in with friends on a movie or video game night. Dunno if they distribute it outside of the Northeast or not...

Red Stripe is a great beer for parties, and the bottle makes you imagine you are drinking old-timey tonic.

Hoegaarden is my favorite. Most Belgian beers are fantastic.

My taste in beer tends to change as I age. I went through my Molson Canadian phase in high school because we were young and marketing works. Also we could get Bubbas back then. Bubbas were mini kegs that could be purchased en masse and were super popular back in my day.

As I aged I found Moosehead to be a nice choice as it wasn't watery and unlike Canadian didn't taste like horse pee. It tasted like moose pee.

If I can find it nowadays I prefer Muskoka Dark Ale. Kind of heavy for summer drinking ( in those cases I prefer Hoegaarden )

Only brewed in my Province. Love it.

I don't like beers since they taste pretty horrible to me but I do like the occasional Tsingtao beer. I don't know how popular it is outside of Asia though. That aside, I'm more of a whiskey/red wine kind of guy.

We do have TsingTao available here. I'm just like you though, whiskey/red wine shenanigans.

James Boags which is an awesome Tasmanian beer.

#16 Posted by blindisaac (141 posts) -

In terms of domestic "cheap" beer I enjoy both both Budweiser and Bud Light. My friends and I have gotten into the Miller Lite because of the punch top cans for obvious reasons. The best beer I have had in my adult life has been Landshark amd I also liked Guinness the few times I have had it.

#17 Posted by BraveToaster (12590 posts) -

Corona and Landshark

#18 Edited by Icemo (625 posts) -

I mainly drink cheap mainstream beers, and most of the time Karhu is my weapon of choice.

If you already didn't guess from the cans, "karhu" means "bear" in finnish. And yes, in the middle is a friggin 1 litre (33.8 oz) can of beer!

#19 Posted by UncleClassy (405 posts) -

Favorite session beer would be a toss up between Killian's or Yuengling. You can't beat the flavor to cost ratio of those two.
Otherwise I don't know. I've pretty much just started to try craftier beers.

So where exactly is "here"? The only places I've been able to get them are China and Hong Kong (obviously) when I visit relatives. They probably import some to America but there's no chance in Hell you find any here in Ireland. Seems like the populace here are rather content with boiled piss when it comes to beers.

I'm thirsty now.

#21 Posted by Bourbon_Warrior (4523 posts) -

Bourbon and Coke. But if I have to I drink Corona

#22 Posted by 71Ranchero (2580 posts) -

Coors Light.

#23 Posted by Clonedzero (3729 posts) -

i rather enjoy IPA's.

i have a regular i generally drink, but its not my favorite. i try lots of beer, anytime i see new kinda i try them. but IPAs in general are my favorite.

#24 Posted by TopSteer (624 posts) -

@Roomrunner: We have Yuengling down here in Florida, It's pretty good.

My favorite is Beck's Dark, although it's getting harder to find here.

#25 Posted by AlianthaBerries (142 posts) -

Cobra is AMAZING

#26 Posted by Tim_the_Corsair (3065 posts) -

Hahn Super Dry is my current go-to drop, although I am partial to most dry Australian beers and pale ales.

When I'm feeling a little more exotic, I enjoy a few different Belgian or German beers (had quite a bit of Franzikaner last weekend), and I don't mind Asahi and some other pale Asian beers either.

I also like stout, though I drink it rarely.

Hardest thing on my honeymoon in Hawaii was finding a decent beer to drink; where it didn't taste like beer flavoured water, it instead just tasted like water flavoured water. You know you're a depressed Aussie when the best beer you can find is fucking Corona.

#27 Posted by Breadfan (6586 posts) -

Shocktop or Blue Moon. PBR in desperation.

#28 Posted by Caduceus77 (51 posts) -

Most beers from Stone & Dogfish are awesome. Just started enjoying Russian River brewing as well. We try a lot of different beers on our podcast.

#29 Posted by phuzzybunny (165 posts) -

Anchor Steam's Christmas ale is my favorite by a mile. Shame it only comes around once a year. New Belgium's 1554 is my favorite year round.

#30 Posted by Godlyawesomeguy (6375 posts) -

Heineken because......I really don't know. Maybe PBR occasionally.

I'm poor.

#31 Posted by NathHaw (2753 posts) -

I may have a new favorite bad beer. Just got it in the liquor store tonight. 30 pack for $10.49. It's called Hamm's.

#32 Posted by Scrawnto (2413 posts) -

I tend to get Blue Moon at the store, but there is a pub here that makes amazing beer. The Stone of Scone Scotch Ale from the Great Dane in Madison is exquisite. My favorite by a wide margin.

#33 Edited by porterpj (16 posts) -

It's a full meal in a glass!

#34 Posted by SlapHappyJesus (120 posts) -

My personal favorite is actually brewed about ten minutes from my house - Lionshead.

I am not the biggest fan of beer, though I really took a liking to this one.

Other than that, I also really like Sam Adams.

#35 Posted by lead_farmer (1038 posts) -

Blackened Voodoo has been a favorite of mine for a little while. There is also a Boatswain Double IPA that is pretty great.

#36 Posted by TheVeteran13 (1197 posts) -

In the immortal words of WORLD RENOWNED MUSICIANS Shwayze, Corona and lime

#42 Posted by BrockNRolla (1702 posts) -

The best Wisconsin has to offer, and my personal favorite beer.

#43 Posted by Bwast (1334 posts) -

@EndlessObsidian: India is pretty good. I will always love Blue Star more than anything. When I was in St. John's last year I went to a restaurant that made its own beer. Forget the name but it was really good.

#44 Posted by EndlessObsidian (470 posts) -

@Bwast: Ya, Blue Star, India, Black Horse, all Newfie made beers that are quite good. Also, the restaurant in St. John's wasn't YellowBelly Brewery by any chance?

#45 Posted by Sparky_Buzzsaw (5797 posts) -

Just about any variety of Pyramid beer is pretty great, but I really like their apricot flavored ones. Hard to come by where I live, but man, it's good stuff. Also, Corona, Bud Wheat, and Bud Light Lime. All good stuff.

Fuck beer...that is all.

#47 Posted by Vodun (2365 posts) -
Black Isle Brewery son!

Nothing to do with the developer, but everything to do with awesome beer. They even grow everything for the beer themselves around their brewery in Scottland!

That what I love about Wisconsin. A shit ton of microbreweries. Most people when they hear "Wisconsin Beer" they think Miller or some other crap "carbonated piss" but they really don't know that there are a lot of places that make their own beer. I work at Wisconsin Dells now so my option are limited but next time I find myself in Madison I will check out the place you recommended.

Back on subject...I'm a big fan of Lagers especially the Boston Lager of Sam Adams.

#49 Posted by GloriousDinosaur (423 posts) -

James Squire - Golden Ale

A delicious Australian product that is on the expensive side of cheap

#50 Edited by Darksaw (315 posts) -

I love ales. My favorite beer is definitely Fuller's London Pride.

But if we're talking more local I love a T.E.A. (Traditional English Ale)

Then of course there's a nice smooth Guinness if I'm in the mood for a liquid meal.

I love all beers except lagers, I can only drink those on a hot day.
