    Try a nice cold hefeweiss-Weihenstephaner, Paulaner or Schneider- w/ or w/o lemon slice (purists say it kills the flavor, I like it on occasion). Ahhhh, now that's refreshment. Unfortunately, been stuck between 10-20 degrees lately, so that day seems a bit far off.


    Contrary to conventional wisdom, a good dark beer is really enjoyable on a hot day, in my opinion. A dunkel hefeweisse, or a Belgian dubbel.

    I agree that dark beers are great year-round. A dry Irish stout is great when you're thirsty. When it's hot out, I go for a beer that's lighter in alcohol, but not necessarily in colour.

    +1. I pretty much drink hefeweissens 90% of the time.

    Perhaps I betray my left coast leanings, but I'm shocked at the lack of visible love for Lagunitas on this thread. Nobody should go through life without drinking their fill of something like the Undercover Investigation Shut Down Ale. We're still here indeed. Is it almost 4:30?

    +1--enjoyed a Lagunitas "Chronic" t'other night. Very tasty.

    Currently have some Harpoon IPA and Unibroue Fin du Monde in the fridge.

    Im not much of a beer drinker, but if I had to vote for my favorite it would be either Heineken or Labatts Blue. Both are excellent.

    Blasphemy. It's a pretty good beer. Overpriced stateside, but a good beer, nonetheless.

    Instead of wine gift baskets for visiting VIP's i like to include a bit of my cities (Toronto- What!) local brews. Unlike the wine none of these ever get left behind in the rooms

    I like

    Steamwhistle Pilsner - beautiful brewery in the heart of toronto. ECo friendly brewing process fresh spring water . Bavarian purity law - (followed by good brewers everywhere- only a certain amount of ingredients and a volume of booze)

    Creemore Springs - It got bought out by Molson but only with the promise that they wouldnt screw with the brewing process or the recipe. So far so good. More promotion and availability.

    Camerons Amber Ale - Are you kidding me - Comes in a unique nine pack this stuff is the drink of the Gods. Highly recommended.

    Amsterdam Natural Blonde - Another good brewery from the middle of Toronto.

    Pliny the Elder

    Pliny The Younger as well. Both are great beers.

    I'd say that Aventinus has been my fav for almost two years now since I found it a my local Winking Lizard.

    I've also become a big fan of Duvel. It has such a brilliant flavor and plenty of alcohol to kick you in the a$$.
