    My new favorite available-everywhere beer is Blue Moon.

    What the hell was I thinking? Replace that with Smithwick's.

    Are people outside Colorado familiar with Odell Brewing? I like their Easy Street Wheat for slaking thirst.

    If you live in the midwest my favorite offerings are from Bells. Their Two Hearted Ale is probably my all time favorite beer. They have a kick ass double IPA winter seasonal called Hopslam that is absolutely amazing.

    There are so many good microbreweries now that there is no need to drink Bud or Miller anymore... even most of the "luxury" brands and imports like Heineken, Stella, Blue Moon, Bass, et al pale in comparison to their respective counterparts in the microbrew world. For instance Bell's Kalamazoo Stout kicks Guiness' ass by a large margin. Actually any stout from a respectable brewer should be better than Guiness. This holds true for just about any locally-brewed beer vs established brands.

    I cringe when a restaurant has a bunch of awesome microbrews ON TAP and people are still drinking Miller Lite in bottles. Ahhh the humanity!!!

    I'm not that avid a beer-trinker but from time to time I like one:

    Kozel

    Budweiser (Czech)
    [​IMG]

    Or several of certain smaller breweries like Siebensternbräu in Vienna and/or also in South Germany...many of the large international brands taste similar and all of them taste a bit shallow and uneventful. American Budweiser beer has little taste at all! (yet is like water with alc, nearly...[​IMG])...some Japanese beers are ok especially the ones limited to special seasons like autumn etc, Sapporo is ok.

    UFO ("Un-Filtered Offering") Harpoon...tap only....in the big glass!

    Anyone ever go to Sunset bar and Tap in Alston Mass (Boston)...many tasty items, had lunch there last summer, 2 people $90, $12 was food, and we didn't drink that much...Sierra Nevada good, Paulaner, Anchor....these are common....many many microbrews too numerous to list...Rogue is good stuff...Dogfish....Golden Monkey! No reason to ever ever ever drink Bud/Coors Light. If you want a cheap light Amstel is much better for about the same price $15 for a 12 here in NYC.

    Sunset is where all the BU hoes go to find dicks. [​IMG]

    j/k (but not really). I used to go to Sunset quite a bit for their lunch specials. Great beer selection, and usually a friendly bartender.
