    Well, we covered some other gender specific topics earlier. Now, I don't really care about that, but I am interested, very interested in what the ladies have to say about this subject. Ladies.....come on now.....here's your time to shine. My personal favorite is Corona Light (yes I keep limes at the house too), but what about you? Are there any women who drink Pabst Blue Ribbon out there?

    Bass Ale, Red Tail Ale (from Mendocino County in California, shout out!), Samuel Adams, and LandsBier (I think that was the name of it) when in the Bavarian region of Germany. Probably the best beer I ever had, bless the Germans and their beer purity laws.

    But my preference is wine or champagne. No, I'm not flirting with Rabbit by posting in his thread :D.

    I'm not a woman, but also like beer very much.

    I prefer " Bizim Pive" manufactured in Baku, Azerbaijan, " Hyrdalan" -also here, then "Holsten" ( Germany) - very soft, in the last Budwiser.

    Cheers !!!

    But really what is relation to PRO tennis talk ?

    Red Tail Ale is 6.9% vs about 4.5% for Corona Light. I see who wears the pants in this flirtationship! Good choices Fee.

    Sorry to post in French the following story, I'll try to translate it in english later.

    Après un festival de la bière à Londres, tous les présidents de brasseries décident d'aller boire un coup ensemble.

    Le président de Corona s'assoit et dit : "Señor, je voudrais la meilleure des bières, une Corona". Le barman prend une bouteille sur l'étagère et lui donne.

    Le président de Budweiser dit : "J'aimerais la meilleure bière du monde, donnez-moi une 'King of the Beers'". Le barman lui en donne une.

    Le président de Coors dit : "J'aimerais la meilleure bière du monde, la seule fabriquée avec de l'eau de source des Montagnes Rocheuses, donnez-moi une Coors". Et il l'obtient.

    Un moine belge s'assoit et dit : "Donnez-moi un Coca Cola".

    Les autres présidents le regardent ahuris et demandent : "Pourquoi tu ne bois pas de Leffe ?".

    Et le moine réponds: "Les gars, si vous ne buvez pas de bière, je n'en boirais pas non plus..."

    harp with a lime is better than corona, unless ur watching the belt line. give it a shot. corona is a nice bottle beer but in a glass its just too light.

    i personally drink bush light (nice and watery), bud heavy, and sam adams.

    sam adams is the best in a glass but costs alot.

    i don't think it's for men only. it helps men in a way though...beer goggles. (ok, well maybe not.)

    my personal favorites are hoegarden (belgian beer) and singha (thai beer). and if i don't see that available then i go with the hennessy or remy martin.

    Is beer only for men? Mate you wouldnt be asking that question if you'd dated a Swedish or a German girl LOL. Now they really do appreciate their beers

    I always go overboard when beer is the topic, I won't bother to list my faves (let it be known that Corona is not one of them!) I am impressed by Fee's beer preferences. I've only seen a woman drink stout once (and like it!)

    Must be the English/Irish blood in me and the German husband. I had Guinness during my last visit to Limerick, Ireland and don't think I'll ever drink it in the US again. I love Bass Ale, especially when you can get it from a barrel at an English pub in the Midlands near the brewery, but I will only drink it from a bottle in the US unless I know I'm in a busy place that turns the keg over regularly. Butte Creek Organic ale is another good California brew. My husband likes Sierra Nevada, but its too pale for my taste.

    Yes, I'm not a fan of beers as hoppy as Sierra Nevada. I do like Rogue beers though, most of them are great. I especially like the Mocha Porter and CHocolate Stout.

    Chocolate stout? So you like your beer to reach up and slap you? That sounds like a wicked brew... Hey speaking of which, is Pete's Wicked Ale still around? I used to drink that a lot years ago, guess I went off of it at some point.

    Yup. Pete's is still readily available.

    The Micro Breweries have become so prevalent in the US, it reduces the possiblities of beer arguments. Too many of us know beers which are only Regionals....

    (That said, the Boulder Brewery used to make a Porter which tasted like ... heaven.)

    The best porter I've had, and one of the best beers period, is Fuller's London Porter. Tastes like Chocolate truffles, it doesn't get much better than that! I can't even imagine how it must taste when it's fresh. I've had Pete's before, it tastes just like Young's Dirty Dick Ale.

    Every now and then Mrs Pug fancy half a pint of Samual Smith Nut Brown Ale, and I get to have the rest of the Victorian Pint sized bottle.
