    Pilsin from Costa Rica. Best beer I ever had was Bitburger in Berlin. Favorite beer at home is Amstel Light (blame the diet.) Blue Moon was always a classic.

    Hmm...I've been recently trying to get myself to enjoy beer more. I wasn't able to stand the taste before, but I think I'm starting to acquire some respect for the variety of tastes that different beers can have. With that said, I've also learned that I REALLY REALLY REALLY dislike the bitterness of hops. I think of the beers I've had, I've particularly enjoyed Hoegaarden, Sam Adams Boston Lager, and Blue Moon. I guess I like wheat beers that are smooth and clean, but I'm open to trying other beers. What beers do you suggest?

    Gueze is brewed sans hops, I think. It's a true Lambic, bit of an acquired taste.

    I +1 on Chimay Blue. I also like Leffe

    Ten Fidy-- A PHENOMENAL Russian Imperial Stout brewed by the Oskar Blues Brewing Co. in Lyons, Co.. It pours like motor oil, and has a dark, creamy head. Thought I smelled some coffee in the nose. It can creep on ya though, at 10% ABV, so watch out!

    I have many. Hollande 1620 and Heineken when I want a Dutch beer. Sweetwater IPA when I want hops. Alexander Keith's is a damn fine Canadian beer. Of course, Guinness when I am hungry.

    Belgian Trippels, Dubbels and Quads.. St. Bernardus and Maredsous. Belgian Ales, Leffe is great, both the blond and brown, also Gulden Draak. There are some really good American craft Belgian styles too, Alagash and Green Flash are two of my favorites. Belgians I avoid, Chimay and Delerium, they give me a hangover, not sure why. I do like the occasional Pale Ale or IPA, pairs well with savory foods.

    BTW, Blue Moon is brewed by Coors. It's their sneaky attempt at getting part of the craft brew market.

    For me it's the Pumpkins. Two local pumpkins are phenomenal. O'Fallon and Schlafley. The latter is an imperial and has more flavor but it also has 8% ABV. Three of them will knock you on your ass. The former is not as robust but much more drinkable in quantities of more than 2 if that makes any sense...
