Steel Reserve biatches!

back in my days of cheap beer and drinking to get drunk, I got used to steel reserve. Its disgusting, but it gets the job done. Thank God that's behind me! I am a Sam Adams guy if I'm drinking two or less, Budweiser/Bud Light beyond that.

Medium to dark lagers (Schwarzbier, Dunkel, Vienna, Oktoberfest/Märzen, etc.)

Tough call between ale and lager. I like both Blue Moon and Negra Modelo -its like yin vs yang :)

Owww! That was harsh...Actually, I'm not much of a drinker at all, so I guess that's why my taste is kinda on the mild side...
P.S. I guess they're not "Stout", huh? LOL!

Domestic - Sam Adams, of which some of my favorites are Black Lager, Cream Stout, Boston Lager, Old Fezziwig Ale

Import - Newcastle Brown Ale - delicious

Lager and Pilseners. Mainly light to medium lagers. Unfortunately the main favorites are main stream beers like corona, bud select, asahi, amstel light, various sam adams. Blue moon and hoegaaden is amazing too. What is hoegaaden considered?

Hoegaarden is a "Wit" beer (white ale ... brewed with wheat as well as the usual malted barley)

Technically speaking, they might be classified as pilsners (lager), but mostly they're classified separately as American Lagers or American Light Lagers.

Personally, I've labeled them "Industrial Yellow Water" ;)

Blue Moon with orange is good lately. There's a local brew down here thats a type of IPA but without the super bitter hoppiness which I usally associate with IPA's, I forget the name of it but it is pretty amazing. I usualy go for Newcastle, Hefeweizen or Sam Adams (mild, smooth and/or nutty beers), nothing too stout and roasted tasting or overly bubbly/carbonated.

I don't know how people enjoy Asahi, it's so dry that I need a better beer to wash it down with!

Strong, but true, words coming from the land of Pripps, Spendrups and Falcon. Thirsty Swedes have to invade Denmark or take ships full of Lapin Kulta to Finland to see real beer in its natural habitat.

The Czech Republic has great beers, but Guinness is hard to beat.

In the summer on a hot day nothing beats a wheat or Weis beer with lemon or lime. In the cooler days of fall/winter I enjoy an English bitter or Guinness...or maybe a Pale Ale like Sierra Nevada. Anytime sippin' on a Belgian Ale (Trappist) is pretty sweet.

Sweet, I'm with the majority.

Belgian ales are the best. I especially love this time of the year when the LCBO stocks up on Chimay, Golden Draak, Affligem, and other fine beers. :)

Have you Belgian fans tried Delerium?

It blow doors on Chimay in my opinion.

If you like blue Moon, try Purple Haze or Sweet water Blue. Good stuff. I think we should do a Poll on best Cheap beer

I'd say Amber bock it's about 5$ for a 6 pack and taste as good as any microbrew.

That's like asking: what's your favorite way of winning a million dollars? How do you pick.

Living in the northwest, we've got some of the best microbrews you can find.

Rogue: Dead Guy Ale
Deschutes: Bachelor ESB and Cinder Cone

and any nice IPA.

My favorite way of winning a million is in a brown paper bag, next to some rail road tracks, far from my house. :-)

and PBR Rules!!! ;-)

Lapin Kulta is not much better than Pripps/Spendrups/Falcon. Also f..eh, really close to water. With more alcohol though :-)

Na. Guinness, good Ales, Belgian ones, and also some Czech ones are nice.

Watch out, my American brothers---the price of hops is going up here (long story) and so will beer prices, probably in a month or so.

Nice call on the Fezziwig Ale, Commando. I look forward to it every Christmas. I've been drinking it for 10 years and I swear it's changed lately. Maybe not as spicy as it used to be? What do you think? I really like all the winter beers...Anchor Holiday Ale, Alaskan Winter Ale, Sam Adams Octoberfest is fantastic. Star Hill in Charlottesville, VA makes some of the best brew in America.

As for cheap beer, gotta go with Rich from Hotlanta...PBR all the way. I used to hammer down $5 buckets (6 per bucket) of PBR when I lived in Charleston, SC. I also have an affinity for good 'ole Old Style. When I used to live in Cincy, I frequented a bar/music club that had 24oz cans of Old Style in the bag for 99 cents. 5 of those and you're good to go, throw in a nice $5 tip for the lovely barkeep and you're drunk and eternally hooked up for $10 bones.

I like all sorts of beer, don't have a favorite just yet. I like the german reds for sure. Any beer tastes good after a hot summer day tennis match, not Miller or Coors though or that Michelobe Ultra **** :)

Or my All Time Party favorite South Paw. It's about $6 for a 12 pack and actually taste ok..... at least for a 6$ 12-pack beer, way better than Natural light, I'd say it's on par with Bud Lite :-)

and a 40-OZ of Micky's ICE my college party brew of choice. It was about $1.80.

True. Among "mass-produced" beers in Suomi (Finland), Karhu has more "balls" than Lapin Kulta.

Na. Guinness, good Ales, Belgian ones, and also some Czech ones are nice.I learned from watching a travel show on TV the other day that the Czechs--on a per capita basis--are #1 when it comes to beer consumption. Czech-mate! :-)

haha, my friend and i watched this girl in the local grocery store. we were buying beer and she was super hot, looked like a model. she was just buying a 6 pack of stella artois. since we were behind her in the line we saw her put the beer in the back of her mo-ped and drive off, it was hilarious. just the beer in the moped. and she was hot!

True true. Essential to keeping a good diet. Light does taste as good as the regular
