Favorite Beers

post #1 of 103
Thread Starter 
I went to a local beer garden I had never been before to try some new beers and was wondering what are your favorites? They had a decent selection (53 on tap and 100 in bottle). I had a Goose Island Summer Time Ale and a Belgian White Wheat Ale. They were not bad, but I had to go back to my old standby-Guinness. I was jsut wondering what are your guys favorite beers year round and what do yo ulike to drink during the summer?

My supply is somewhat limited--I just don't think hefeweizen and krystalweizen are all they're cracked up to be, and they're the popular ones around here. There're also a couple of kinds of pils that might as well be Bud. Mark me down for Guiness year round, dunklebier when I can get it (Paulaner sells it as amber in the States), and the Hofbrauhaus' Oktoberfest brew during the relevant weeks in September Tom

The two hallmarks of modern civilization are having a Starbucks, and being able to obtain Guinness on tap.

I like atlbeer when it is cold, and wheat beer when it is warm. if I can't get alt beer, which is most of the time, I will drink bitter. for wheat beer my favorite is hoegarten, but there are a few good american made "beligan style whites" that are pretty good.

I tried one called John Smith a while that was to be drunk at room temperature. It was not bad. I also love Boddington's.

I can drink BdeB all day long. I made the mistake of drinking too many La Fin du Mond while in Montreal for F1 on the first day. On Saturday I made sure to change to Blanche de Chambly. If you like the Brooklyn, try Allagash White. I really like the grey area between a traditional wit and hefe that some of those beers cross.

I've actually tried the allagash white too, and seem to remember it was pretty nice. I had a bar-b-que with about 40 people a few weeks ago, and about half brought beer, so I had a chance to try a lot of nice small brewery beers - the alagash and a bunch from saranac. but my local carries BdeB and it is a very nice hot weather beer.

Dogfish Head - 60 Minute IPA Sierra Nevada - IPA and Porter Yuengling Lager Pretty much everything out of Brooklyn brewery is good (though I didn't care for the Pennant Ale - I think it was called that). In Baltimore, Brewers Art has some really good beer.

If I could afford it, I'd drink more Chimay. But more often, I prefer Heineken, Kirin Ichiban, and Sapporo.
