when the night is kinda special...it's Lowenbrau. although sometimes i've got Pabst Blue Ribbon on my mind. otherwise, i like red hook ESB or pale ale, anchor steam, guiness. if i go to a brewpub i'll usually get whatever ESB or IPA they have on tap. if i go to an irish bar i'll usually get guiness or harp. if i'm feeling a little splurgy i might get a chimay.
