me either, for a while there, when I discovered that with an I.V. I could eat and drink at the same time :)
and i always wanted one of those beer hats with the two bottles on em with long straws/tubes to drink from. If your sipping from a straw; is that drinking? and does it get to foamy to drink; makes me thirsty just thinking about it. wish I had a Negra Modelo; love that dark ale Mexican brew.
I never drink... beer.
I am always partial to a god IPA, or a stout if it is cold out.
One of my favorites is the Stone Brewery Ruination IPA
My favorite beer in wide distribution is probably Blue Moon on the backs of their excellent seasonal brews.
I also will pay through the nose to try the "reconstructed" beers that Dogfish Head does sometimes. The last one was based on archaeological evidence from the Bronze Age in Turkey, but they have done ones from Ancient Egypt and even Neolithic China.
Very good. Twigs' avvy could practically be the label.
Writing about duergar and drinking Sam Adam's Griffin's Bow. It's labeled as an oaked blonde barleywine. It's coloring is definitely lighter than the average barleywine, just a shade lighter than their lager. It's different too, far sweeter with a more floral taste than something like a Sierra Nevada Bigfoot. Not bad, but I can't say it's my favorite. As far as sweetness goes, reminds me of Dogfish Head's Midas Touch which I think is a far better beer than this. I tend towards darker and heavier beers in the winter so I see myself enjoying this more in the late spring/early summer months. I have another interesting beer I'm going to pop open tomorrow night and I'll post my thoughts on it. It sold me on the label alone, a pig drinking a beer.
Steamwhistle: Brewed in Toronto. A touch of bitterness, offsetting the slightly sweet taste.
Creemore Springs: Very, very good.
Beau's Lug Tread: A local microbrewery brews this organic lager with local ingredients. Incredibly flavourful, plus you can get the beer in huge jugs!
St. Peter's English Ale: Very bitter. Very good.
Any Trappist beer.
That and I just don't like the taste.
I hear you there. I don't like the taste of alcohol either. Which is why my tastes steer me away from the alcohol taste. Really chewy dark lager is an acquired taste but it doesn't taste too much like alcohol. To me the purpose is to cover up that nasty taste as much as possible. Wine coolers, wimpy margueritas and sea breezes for me!
Also Berry Weiss for those who have had it!

My favorite thing about St. Peter's is the green, flask shaped bottle. Just fits in my hand better than a traditional round shape.

The St. Peters organic really very good indeed, their mild is really tasty as well.
Favorite "trappist": Konigshoven Quadrupel
If you're in the Seattle area and love beer, it's worth the day to go out and try their stuff.
Clearly you didn't read the whole post. I said I don't like the taste of alcohol, but beer doesn't taste of alcohol to me the way that vodka or gin or whiskey does.
Interesting, I've been told they don't supply outside of WI. I'm in the Twin Cities, so it's not an outrageous drive to go pick some up, but something closer than 50 miles would be nice.
Clearly, my detect sense of humor role was in error.
Oh, no, they don't distribute there I'm just saying it gets out there. Like you say, people who live on the state line often shop on either side.I just meant to say it's not "local" it's state-wide distribution.

I'm drinking Saint Arnold Amber Ale. I like it!
My wife is very fond of their Christmas Ale. One year my company hosted a BBQ at the brewery, which was AWESOME -- back before the idea of alcohol somehow became offensive to everyone.

How the blazes did I miss this thread!!! o.O
So, as mentioned early on, Michelob Amber Bock and Warsteiner are some fine beers indeed. However, the finest of all is Caffrey's Irish Ale. No longer imported to the United States by those sales cretins at Coors, I was fortunate enough to have it as the "Official Beer of My Wedding". :)
For you Canucks and Brits, you can still an enjoy this nectar of the gods, but due to Coors insistence on only producing Killian's (yucky!), I shall forever hate them. For reasons other than their crappy beers.
