    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    My of-the-moment favorites are:

    Miller High Life
    Newcastle
    Goose Island Summertime
    Blue Moon Belgian White
    Boddington's
    Pilsner Urquell

    Best place to have a brew in the States hands-down is Toronado on Haight in San Francisco. Much of the Brother David's selection there can be found only there.

    The Pub in the basement of Ida Noyes Hall at University of Chicago is also quite good. Like anyone in any position of importance in Hyde Park, Victor the bartender holds a PhD, and will waste no time in acquainting you with the rare Goose Island stouts and ciders he has procured.

    Based on pure volume consumed, my top beer must be PBR. And I do prefer it to about 60% of the other beers I've tried.

    Second by volume is Guinness, followed by Kokanee (not because I really like Kokanee) and Henry Weinhard's Private Reserve.

    Favorites include a half-and-half (Guinness & Harp), plain Guinness, Blue Moon (which until recently I had been known to drive a couple of miles out of the way to buy), Pilsner Urquell, Hoegaarten, Pyramid Hefeweizen, Henry's, and for some reason I have been enjoying Labatt's Blue lately. I also like Molson Canadian when I can find it. Happily I have found that I don't enjoy expensive beer much more than cheaper beer (~$1/bottle-ish) so that saves me money.

    No... seriously? If so, you are the first person I have ever encountered who drinks it voluntarily.

    Because it's so well marketed and packaged, we in the U.S. think it is awesome. But Australians have told me other wise.
