What is your favorite beer? Ale or lager? Microbrewery or larger operations? Light or dark? Strong or mild? Bottle or can? Please, elaborate!

I don't usually drink beer, but when I do
I prefer Sam Adams.

My favorite is Summer Ale, but I like most of
their "seasonals". Boston Lager is good too.

My favorite cheap beer is Miller High Life, in a bottle, please.

My favorite "expensive" beer is Boddington's, followed closely by Guinness, both draught, please.

After those, I lean more towards hefeveisens (i aint lookin it up), and brews with a little "sumthin" in it, besides belches.

Unlike most guys, "whatever's free" is my distant 4th favorite beer. A six pack of anything in my house can last well over a month.

If I had to pick one beer it would be Sierra Nevada Pale Ale.

Redbridge. (its gluten-free).

Bard's is too dark, New Grist is my next favorite. I wish there were more artisanal g-f beers.

I am a total craft beer snob, haven't had anything from Anheuser/InBev/Miller/Coors in years (at least not directly, although I understand they hold some ownership stakes in a few of the larger craft brewers). If I'm at a restaurant that only offers the mega-brews, I'll forgo beer altogether. Obnoxious, I know, but life's too short to drink flavorless mass-market beer. In my fridge at the moment are a couple of growlers from a local brewery, and I'm super excited for my BIL's place, which will be opening soon.

I can only drink beer when it's ice, ice cold - as soon as it starts warming up, that's it for me. I like a nice frozen bottle of Michelob.

I'm not a beerdrinker but once upon a time I had a Peruvian beer that was very, very interesting. It was dark in color but milder in flavor. Had it in LA at a restaurant and made the mistake of thinking that I could remember the name. I didn't. Anybody have a clue?

Used to drink Molson Golden and Rolling Rock and a friend has led me in the direction of Dogfish IPA, but since the sugar hit, I just haven't been into it.

Most of my favorite beers are from smaller, local breweries. I am lucky that I live in an area with dozens of amazing breweries! Here's my list:
1) Russian River Brewery - Pliny the Elder
2) La Gunitas - IPA
3) La Gunitas - Little Sumpin' Sumpin'
4) Blue Moon - Belgium white
5) Shocktop - White
6) Sierra Nevada - Pale ale (in a pinch)

I'm not a huge beer drinker, and hardly a connoisseur, but I also prefer the smaller breweries over the mass-market beers. Dogfish Head is native to Delaware and has some excellent offerings. A local restaurant chain, Iron Hill Brewery, has some very nice offerings on draft. I love their wheat beer. Food at the restaurants is pretty good, too.

Does O'Douls count? :)

Actually, I have a question. I noticed that nobody so far has mentioned Pabst Blue Ribbon, the favorite of hipsters. Sometimes hipsters know their stuff, but sometimes they just follow trends mindlessly. So, is PBR popular only because of its kitsch factor?

Finally a beer question!

I am not a beer snob, I am a beer nerd.

For drinking after I cut the grass or something, I like Icehouse.

But I prefer craft beer. The more local the better. My favorite is Jailhouse Brewing Companies Mugshot IPA. My favorite beer period. The brewery is close to my home and I am friends with the owner/brewmaster.

I am fond of Sweetwaters 420 also. Easier to find when I am out of town.

However, if someone offered me a cold beer of any kind, I am unlikly to say no. :D

I like New Planet, their Off Grid Pale Ale in specific. Redbridge isn't bad if I can't get to the Co-op to get New Planet.

Nothing wrong with PBRs. There is a kind of honesty about it.

As for testimonials, just walk into any college dorm and say, "I've got four cases of cold PBR's out in the car. Anybody have a use for 'em?" You will get all the evidence of legitimacy you need.

I don't drink beer very often. When I do, I usually add v-8 to it anyway so I usually just drink cheap beers. Usually, odoul's or coors. Hubby likes beer a bit more. He likes many different kinds of beer. when he isn't drinking the "cheap" stuff, he usually gets a Sam Adams. He was recently introduced to something called Chimay(?) and he likes that but they are really proud of themselves so he doesn't get it very often. :lol:

First off, none of us are hipsters, that I know of at least.

Secondly, as to the dropping cases to he dorms, that still doesn't prove favoritism. It goes back to my original statement that most guys prefer the free beer over any other.

As for all you microbrewery fans, I'll meet you at our local Smokehouse Brewery for an afternoon one day. We'll all have soft pretzels and beer cheese (the only food there worth a damn), and have two samplers each, which is enough to try all 9 brews, and "retry" the best 3.

I'm not a beer fan. The closest I get is New Glarus Raspberry Tart or Belgian Red (like Lindeman's framboise and kriek, respectively).
