Rolling Rock.
I first started drinking Rolling Rock in bars because the long neck bottle made for the best weapon.
Which is why I never drank Michelob.

Koch's Golden Anniversary. Hands Down. I've only had it in cans. If you can find it, it's about $1.99 or $2.99 a 6 pack LOL! Tastes like the leftover foam from a keg when you either start it or end it.

There is a beer called Hop Pocket in VA. I believe it is brewed by Old Dominion Brewing company. Grew up in VA but haven't spent any real time there in about 5 years. That beer was the bomb, extremely hoppy and flavorful, about 6-7% alcohol. I know it won a ton of awards at beer festivals but you can't get it outside of VA, as far as I know. I also really enjoy Fiddler's Elbow Hazelnut Brown. Yummie!! For cheap beer on a hot, thirsty day, go for Natural Light.

Normally I drink Boulevard Wheat, brewed right here in KC. When I'm at Newk's I've been known to enjoy a Foster's or 3, and when traveling along the SE seacoast I found something called Georgia Girl or Carolina Blonde (or something like that) that I liked a lot.

Camilio - Yeah, you really needed to be on your toes, bottle in hand...what with so many of those Mt. Lebo thugs running around;-)

I like Kronenborg, but New Castle Brown is also VERY good, as is Pilsner Urquell and Orion (an Okinawin Beer).

Thanks, gmlasam; I'm a beer connoisseur until I've had my 4th or 5th-by that time, all good judgement and taste goes out the door, and even the old ad slogan "Mickey's Malt Liquor gets you there quicker" sounds like a winner!

Phil, I know that Urquell is the only true Pilsner in the world, but have you checked out that river?

Newcastle is my regular these days, but I'll take any pale ale in a pinch.

I cant believe how popular Newcky Brown seems in the States,I thought you all drank Bud-yuck!You would probably love some of our real ales or bitter as its commonly known over here.I also can't believe some of you drink "wife beater"that stuff's grim after 3 pints and gives you a wicked hangover.
Personally I like quality lagers like Nastro,Cobra,Sagres,St Miguel or maybe Asahi-the Guinness in Dublin is also particularly more-ish.I also remember drinking some dark ales in Boston and Banff when I visited which were v good,cant remember the names though.The locals in the Rockies liked to drop depth charges of whisky into their beer then quaff the lot as quick as poss-madness!!!!!

Geezer,

It's Carolina Blonde-brewed right here in Chucktown.

Brettolius,

Natty is the bomb on a hot summer day, mowing the lawn, playing softball; any activity where drinking might actually improve your abilities (also see golf, billiards). A buddy of mine from college was in a band that had a hit song called 'Natural Light'. Every college has a "go to" beer and that was ours. Natty Ice, though? No way!!

Used to drink a beer called Christian Moerlein Honey Almond when I live in Cincinnati. Good stuff.

If anyone is ever in western NC, hit the Highland Brewery in Asheville. They make an excellent pale ale and gaelic ale.

This thread is too limiting. We need to break down beer into types of beers.
Lager, stout, pilsner, Mexican (Sol, baby, Sol!!), etc.

I essentially never drink lager or pilsner (at least not properly made pilsner).

Irish Stout: Beamish
Other Stout: Rogue Shakespeare Stout
Mexican: Does Rogue Chipotle Ale count? I haven't had a mexican in years.
Trappiste: Chimay Grand Reserve
IPA: Dogfish 90 minute

Fairly cheap and can be had almost anywhere in the US: I'll go with Newcastle here.

No, Morpheus, I haven't seen that river, but from the way you say it, I get the feeling that it's probably better that I don't!

What ever they got on the table next to me. The club I belong to has a pretty good social life after the tennis. The beer pours all night - and the players all think they just played some awesome tennis. A little beer after a match and you forget all those returns you dumped into the bottem of the net....

Thanks Kevin T. I'm going to be vacationing in Asheville in July, and will give it a try (or two) for sure!

Cascade, the worlds finest beer. Such an incredibly fine drop you can actually convince people its a acceptable substitute for wine. Not sure if its available in the States but if you ever get out to Australia give it a try. The other must-drink is Yellow Mongrel as brewed at the Geebung Polo Club.

Gmlasam,
are you serving that Newcastle Brown Ale the way nature intended? In other words, are you serving it warm and disgusting in a manner only the English could consider civilised? LOL.

Oh, and as an Australian I'd like to apologise to all of you who may have tasted Fosters or XXXX. We're very sorry and it wont happen again - at least not outside of the UK lol.

As always, Phil is dead on. After the first five, don't forget about the Olde English - loaded with street cred:

Carlsberg. Strongbow is a fun light drink as well. Or just a cube of Bud Heavy.

Current beers of choice are a) Guinness draft (prefer it from the can, poured slowly into a pint glass after opening) and b) Spaten Optimator. One 16.9 oz. Spaten at 6.8% alc. is "liquid nap." Used to love Mackeson Stout on tap back in the 80's when I could find it in San Jose pubs. Not sure if it's still around, tho.

Anyone tried Firestone double barrel ale? Yummy. I like lemon or lime in almost all beers. If you put it in the mug first, there is hardly any foam after the pour.

If I want to be patriotic I'd say Singha Beer.

Otherwise it's Erdinger Dark Weisen.
