My favorite beer of all is Newcastle Brown Ale. Yummmmm!!!
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.
Nice picture gmlasam. I love the presentation. I am personally partial to IPA, but im not that picky when it comes to beer.
Thanks!!! I was going to take a pic of an unopend bottle, but I just couldn't ressist
You'll probably paint me as a wuss but I enjoy most hefeweizens for easy drinkin'. Also a big fan of Harp lager and Yeungling's Black & Tan.
Newcastle is my favorite also...
gmlasam, your table looks just like mine when I'm stringing!!!
Guinness! There's some real beer for ya!
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.
kevin t - no man, don't do that to yourself, natty light of all things! aaaack!!
Bud light......................................................nooooo just kidding,NEWCASTLE IS DA BEST BEER
Sierra Nevada Pale Ale...and of course Natty Ice!
I like Fosters
hoegaarden. that reminds me...time for a beer run.
Anyone here ever tried Honey Beer? How is it and how does it taste like?
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).
Great choice of beers Phil!! I see your a connoisseur of fine beers.
I like goldschlglagger
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!!!!!
Thats my bro's favourite beer, I hate the white beer though :|
It's Carolina Blonde-brewed right here in Chucktown.
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.
The one in the glass in front of ME
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!
in no particular order:
but my favorite alcoholic beverage is actually jagermeister by itself...when im feeling like getting crazy ill usually end up doing 10-12 shots of it with beers mixed in between...
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....
And we have a winner!!!
Thanks Kevin T. I'm going to be vacationing in Asheville in July, and will give it a try (or two) for sure!
Your right, that beer is the bomb. I also have not been able to find it outside of Virginia.
mmmmmm it is good
I too like Pilsner Urquell, plus Sam Smith Nut Brown Ale.
Sam Smith Oatmeal Stout, Young's Double Chocolate Stout, & Fuller's London Porter...
C O L D !!!!
what is this porter thing , its sorta funny cos that is my name
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.
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.
Off the top of my head I would say Michelob Light.
I've never seen Fuller's are you in the States?
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.
Pacifico, an obscure Mexican beer but it is served sparingly in America.
Remillard, they used to have it at our local Lager's, but I think I was the only one drinking that sweet nectar...I doubt they ever got more than one shipment in...That stuff is incredible.
