Hmm. I seem to have lost my place. Oh well, dotting for three years from now.

My favourite root beers are Blue Sky and Barq's. Barq's has a better taste, but it's inorganic, so I don't drink it much. I also drink Hansen's, but it doesn't taste as good as Blue Sky.

Normally Cooper's Pale Ale, but down at the Lord Nelson I'm partial to their "Three Sheets".

Mmmmm....Guinness.

I must retract my previous statement. I had some Barq's yesterday, and it tasted mostly like cola. Either they changed the recipe or (more likely) I idealised it.

I go through phases were I heavily favor specific styles of beer over specific breweries. For example, I went through a barley-wine phase (Sierra Nevada Bigfoot was my favorite), a porter phase, a brown ale phase (Abita Turbo Dog or Smuttynose Old Brown Dog), and last summer was an IPA phase (Dogfish Head was one my many favorites). This summer is a little weird as it's been mostly a beer in the can phase. Butternut Farms out of NY has some good beers in a can. Harpoon has also released their IPA and Summer Ale in a can. I thought as a beer snob I would find it blasphemous, but I'm enjoying the canned beer vs. bottled. However, one of my alltime favorites is Whale's Tale Pale Ale by Cisco Brewery on Nantucket. A bigger company is now brewing it off island so it's starting to get more distribution in the New England area.

I am currently seriously enjoying Ugly Pug black lager.

I love me some Guinness, but down here in Australia we've got a good range to choose from.

Personally I'm a fan of Cooper's Extra Stout in winter and Cooper's Sparkling Ale in Summer.

I'm also fond of the India Pale Ale and Jack of Spades Porter's Stout from James Squire's Brewery.

For the Guinness fans- An English style pub in my area came up with a drink called the Celtic Warrior. They've only recently started advertising it on the drink menu so you used to have to be "in the know" to order it. It's half Guinness and half Woodchuck Hard Cider (like a Black Velvet). The secret ingredient is a shot of Jameson. Caution, it is strong, so be careful. I tried to make my own modified version once around St. Patty's Day. Called the Blood Haze, I substituted a red ale for the cider. It was awful...

Not a favourite but an honourable mention. I'm drinking a bottle of 'Blue Moon', which is billed as a 'North American Craft Beer'. It's bloody good. I wasn't suprised when I flipped the bottle round though and saw it was from Colorado. I've had nice microbrewery beer from there on a trip once before.

I recently brought a sixpack of Moose Drool on a tubing trip. Good stuff at any time of year.

Boulevard Unfiltered Wheat is just a great easy drinker and is my choice when available. However, the brewery is based in Kansas City and they have limited regional distribution, which means I rarely get to enjoy one in Rhode Island. Luckily, I have Dogfish Head and several New England brewers to keep me safe.

Boulevard makes great beers, no question. After leaving New England, I really miss the New England Brewing Company (Norwalk, CT) that used to make Atlantic Amber. That beer was phenomenal.

Oh, don't get me wrong, Yuengling makes some great beer. But, that being the only beer a body can drink is very sad. There are way to many awesome beers in the U.S. to just limit yourself to one.

Mmmmm....Dogfish Head. Now you're my language. Still, this Boulevard sounds interesting. I'll have to keep an eye out for it.

Blue Moon is a very not bad beer.

But a proper Belgian white is better. No corn in my beer, please. Not unless you're gonna put an illustration of an ear of corn on the bottle. That I'd buy, for some reason. Especially if it had a stupid little face on the corn.

Rohrbach Brewery in Rochester NY sells jugs of their Scotch Ale at Wegmans. That has served me well in my last two sessions of Runelords.

I bought a box of coopers lager for an 18th. I havent gone near anything with that label since.

Do they do a good stout, though? I'll have to check it out. I can't name a single stout I can find down under that's palatable, and I definately need to branch out a little.

Loves me some Sam Smith's. Their IPA, of course. Also their Nut Brown Ale and their Oatmeal Stout. Don't think I've ever had their Winterfest though. I'll have to keep an eye out for it.

Being in Colorado, Blue Moon is the cheap equivalent of drinking a good beer (i.e. not Coors, Bud, Michelob) which are on tap everywhere. If you want something that's kinda light and cheap, but actually tastes decent, Blue Moon/Fat Tire it is.

Having said that, I still quite enjoy Guinness despite having about a billion microbreweries around me. New Belgium is a great company, especially since I love belgian-style anything. Their seasonal Somersault is pretty good. As is Great Divide's Oak Aged Yeti. For out of town, Deschutes' Black Butte Porter is excellent.

Likewise, there are some brew pubs around that have so much on tap. I had this on Friday and it was great.

At the end of the month I'll be going to the Great American Beer Festival. I'll have much more to share then. In the mean time, I'll keep trying to remember the good beers I've had lately.

*edit* Since apparently my brain is ahead of me by a couple days, that would be the end of September for the Beer Fest.

Duchesse de Burgogne. If I remember right, it's a Nowegan beer.
Original Sin is another good one. I am a Rakshasa after all. :)

This particular beer is aptly named, it's a really smooth barley wine that is like 15% by volume...

Mmmmm.....barley wine.


Paulaner makes a very good wheat beer.

Other beers I like:
Bass Ale
Newcastle Brown Ale
Heineken
Negra Modello
Dos Equis Amber
Blue Moon
Peroni

I used to like Guiness, but lately I haven't enjoyed it as much.

If you like Paulaner, I would recommend Julius Ecter as well (another German wheat beer). Julies, as I call them, come in a 4 pack of big boy bottles. Delicious.

Kid at work today showed me a pic he took of Heinekin Dark Lager. I had never seen that before, but may have to keep an eye out and see about picking one or two bottle up.

Blue Moon
Indio (Mexican)
Magners Cider (Bulmers in Ireland, where you can get a pear version that is very tasty)
Woodchuck Cider
Pacifico (Mexican that reminds me of my honeymoon in Mazatlan)

I love trying microbrews when we travel, usually prefer wheat beers but have had some stouts that were very tasty. Unfortunately my memory isn't good enough to name any specifically.

Just put in an order through Paizo for the Overlook Hotel Pilsner Glass and the Winchester Tavern Pint Glass! Also, part of the same order - the Dunwich Dunkel t-shirt!


I'm glad to see Guinness love in this thread - have many of you had it in Ireland? Is there much of a difference? I've never had it abroad, but I've heard it can taste pretty different.

Also discovered Blue Moon by chance recently, when I was over at a friend's house. The very next week I was discovered a new burrito place that had bottles of it for sale. So, so happy.

I've been drinking Smithwick's recently - quite a tasty red ale.

I'm convinced it's a myth.

I've had Guinness in Ireland, in the Boston area, in upstate NY and in Quebec. There is no difference really, the difference is whether or not the kegs are getting consumed fast enough. I think in the average American bar, there just isn't enough demand for it and so what comes out of the keg might be rather dodgy.

Of course, the atmosphere of being surrounded in a pub by Irish men and women ceremoniously drinking the black stuff, well that has in intangible quality that I think is the source of the myth.

I've never understood Guinness' reputation.

It's not a bad beer but there are plenty of other stouts which are of equal or better quality. Samuel Smiths do three stouts (Oyster Stout, Imperial Stout, Oatmeal Stout) which I prefer. Ridgeway does a tidy stout too.

My favourite is probably Hook Norton Brewery's Double Stout.

In my experience, I've found it to be a huge difference. The closer to the brewery you get, the better it tastes. The best pint I ever had was about a block away from the brewery (not the tourist trap with the shop and tour).

To test the theory I once took a friend who couldn't stand Guinness to a pub in Dublin and made her try a half-pint. She enjoyed it so much she ordered two more pints. (Edit to Add:) A few months later she ordered one in Boston and ended up spitting it out again.

The difference really stands out after spending a week or two in Dublin and then coming back to the States and ordering one. Occasionally you'll find a pub that knows how to poor it properly, especially in Boston, but it still isn't nearly as good.

I think the reputation stems from the long Dark Age of American beer. Throughout much of the country until the mid-90s, if you wanted something that wasn't a corn lager, Guinness may well have been the only stout you would ever encounter on draft. Hell, in many parts of the country, it is still the least of all evils on tap. For that, it has earned a special place in my heart.

Like making love in a canoe?

That makes sense. The UK had a horrible period of domination by cheap lager as well.

Guiness was always my first choice. I said was.

Someone turned me on to Sweetwater Georgia Brown. Dark like Guiness but smoother, almost like Newcastle (another favorite). It is brewed in Atlanta, Georgia if the name didn't give it away.

Anyone read "The Drawing of the Dark"? Must read for Dark beer lovers that post on Paizo boards. :-)
