I had a Brahmin. Brazilian stuff, quite good. Goodlooking bottle too.

I didnt like the sam adams summer ale that much.

regular sam adams goes well with BBQ.

God, I love beer.

My favorite beer depends on context. With lunch outdoors on a sunny day, I like Hoegarden. Meeting my friend for drinks/dinner at a bar with a good selection, I start off with Dogfish Head 60-minute IPA (or a regional IPA if DH is unavailable), move onto some dark ales, and finish with a framboise. Watching my beloved 'Skins on Sunday afternoon, it's Bud/Miller light (whatever's on special).

Last night I had an Allagash White and Chimay Triple at The Reef. The Allagash was okay (not as good as Hoegarden), but the Chimay was fantastic.

Had a bottle of Edelweiss Hefetrub from Austria last night. After Hacker-Pshorr, one of the tastiest wheat beers I've had the pleasure of drinking.

Went to Pizza Paradiso for the last time tonight. I had two doppelbocks. Awesome beers! Also, I got a copy of their beer menu, with the wonderful descriptions of 80+ beers. I know what I'll be drinking for the next few months.

+1 on the Paulaner double bock. That's a tasty brew.

Russian River's Pliny the Elder (Double IPA) - hoppy goodness!

Even though I hate Delaware, I love Dogfish Head Raison D'Etre.

After spending several days drinking beer in Belgium my favorite is still Antwerp's De Koninck. Cheap but unbelievably smooth compared to anything in the states. Unfortunately I can't find this stuff anywhere in the US anymore.

I just recently found Duvel, a Belgian golden ale. 8.5%, but damn it's nice. Got myself a bottle of that tonight, as well, as Hoegaarden Le Fruit Defendu and Mountain Goat Hightail Ale. Didn't get any Little Creatures beers, although I was promoting them, the store I was working at is really anal about their stock.

If you like Hoegaarden or Blue Moon (the worst option) check out Great Lakes Dortmunder Gold, it's infinitely better.

For a good drink, mix the Dortmunder with lemonade, no joke, it's ridiculously delicious.

My stand by beer is Boont Amber Ale. Absolute classic that never lets me down.

On the lighter side, I care for Pilsner Urquel and lately have been enjoying Trumer Pils.

On the darker side, Brother David's Double Ale and Paulaner double bock are great.

Stouts are a stand by as well. Favorites include Young's (when in England), and Old Ras Russian.

And I haven't touched on favorite Belgian beers ...

I don't think it's possible to have an all time favorite beer because I've got more than one "beer mood."

Slight derail: I had my first IPA the other day, Goose Island's, and the pungency of the spices nearly knocked me down. It was like drinking a glass of potpourri. Are all IPA's like this?
