    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.

    Not one of those SCA wankers I hope, are you?

    the fact that you both know what SCA is, puts you perilously close to that territory.

    not that I know what it is, at all...

    Some other great beers include:

    Summit - Extra Pale Ale - pick up a 6-pack next time you visit MSP.

    Anchor Steam - Liberty Ale. Anchor's best beer IMO.

    Anchor Steam - Holiday. Only available from roughly Halloween or Thanksgiving through Jan 1. Spicy, hoppy stuff. Delicious.

    Sprecher - Milwaukee Pilsner. Seasonal brew. It's like Pilsner Urquell only better.

    Pete's Wicked Ale - yummy when fresh.

    Best beer I ever had was some stuff called Hexen Brau that my sister brought back from Germany. I think it's Swiss or Austrian.

    None of the above: Abbott Ale and Old Speckled Hen, if you're buying.



    Blatz if I'm buying.



    Or maybe, if I just have to have that certain upscale flava that can only be garnered by gold-colored aluminum wrapping, I might spring for (as Faust suggested): "here's to good friends, tonight is kinda special, the beer will pour, must say something more, somehow, so tonight, tonight... let it be Lowenbrau"

    that, my friend, is heresy. nothing is like urquell, only better. there are different types of beer that are much better than pilzner, but urquell is an archtype, a liquid god, if you will.

    not that I am freakishly into beer or anything, I am just trying to set the record straight.

    the other good thing about urquell is that it is a breakfast beer - it is perfectly acceptable to drink it for breakfast. if your significant other questions this, tell them that's what it says on the bottle, in czech.

    RJ,

    I am sure it is good, I can't remember that it made an impression on me. I went to the website to look at the bottle, and I am pretty sure that I have drunk it, but I don't remember it. Usually when I am in Czech Rep. I drink Urquell, or Bud (local Bud) or a dark beer at a brew pub I know. and I am not a big pils fan when not in the czech rep.

    do you buy it here?

    I used to but came back to Urquell. At one time heard it might be better than Urquell. How is the real Budvar?

    fantastic, I can't tell the difference from urquell, myself, although locals and people who drink a lot of pils can. very clean, very nice.
