    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.

    Ha. I only drink it on tap if they serve it in the correct octagonal glass...which pretty much narrows it to the one place I know.

    Where's that, whodini?

    Guinness and Yuengling Lager are my favorites.

    Duvel
    Schneider Aventinus
    Sierra PA
    Arrogant Bastard/Double Bastard
    Anchor Steam
    Spaten Weisse
    Ommegang
    Fin du Monde
    Samuel Smiths oatmeal stout


    I can say that guinness categorically tastes like watered down ashtray rinse to me. Heineken is one of the most hein-ous beers in america. I would only drink it if I was in viet nam and it was served over ice. Asahi or the other japanese lagers are only good with food, I would not choose to drink it alone, although Kuronaga is good. Blue Moon tastes like Ommegang mixed with Evian, yuck.

    I would add any Chouffe to the list, Hefeweissbier Dunkel if you can find it on tap (The Saloon in DC is a good place), and Saison Dupont with food.

    Tarmac, great choice with the Aventinus--incredible beer. Same with the Spaten and the Sam Smith stout for that matter.

    EDIT: Goose Island makes great beer for their price. And the Reserves are also worth looking into--the Bourbon County Stout is one of the best and strangest "beers" I've ever had.

    when in Atlanta, I carry my own octoganal glass with me, and only speak flemish to the waiter.

    I really like Anchor Steam's barley wine, Old Foghorn.

    Old Peculier used to one of my favorites, although I have not had it in quite some time.

    I would recommend Crazy Horse to you sir - I think you would enjoy it.

    Is whatever is cheapest and lightest the wrong answer?

    Not if you drink it out of an octagonal glass.

    Probably one I've never tasted. But Unibroue's lineup comes pretty damn close to experiencing Beervana. Last time I was in the US, I almost went mental with the variety of regional microbrews you guys have and the low prices. [​IMG]

    People are going off-topic. *Nothing fancy, strange, hard-to-find*

    I like Sapporo, bang for the buck in the giant bottle.

    If you go to Puerto Rico, make sure to get some Medalla, the Coors Light of PR.

    These beer threads always turn into a contest of who can name the most exotic, never heard of, "this guy must really know what he's talking about" beers out there.
