Beer Drinkers?

Brewed my own exclusivly for years. Then built a new house 6 yrs ago and that has been my hobby ever since. Still got all the brewing stuff. Plumbed for another kitchen in the basement for brewing and canning. Havent got that far on my list though.

So I have reverted to store bought beer again. I like the "craft brews" but am not all that picky. I stop in and have a couple with the old guy that owns the local bait shop. Nothing but Pabst Blue Ribben there.

I like:
Any of the Sam Adams out of MA
Harpoon IPA
The Saranac Series (esp the 2 high peak brews) out of Utica NY
Fat tire is good have had that.
Any thing by Magic Hat Brewery from VT
I grew up by the border so Canadian beer has a spot in my heart

Man I am suddenly really thirsty???????? Any one for a guinnes?

Beer Drinkers?

I am a bier snob . . . if by "snob" is meant distinguishing between better tasting and worse tasting beer. I will drink a budweiser or a Coors light . . . but only to be sociable and to wet my throat when it is dry. I have drunk many beers from all over, but I prefer the german beers, particularly good german beer on tap. I like the more fully flavored and malty dopplebocks (dark beer). Specifically, I prefer Paulaner Salvatore on tap. Wonderful beer. Eat some grilled nurnberger sausages or bratwurst sausages while drinking. Schneider Aventenius is also one of these dopplebocks as well, although I only see this in bottles. Excellent bier. If I'm going to drink a lighter style of bier, I like Weihenstephaner Kristall Weissbier. I also like Erdinger Weissbier, Paulener Hefeweisen, and Dinkler Acker CD Pils.

I am utterly ignorant of stouts and ales, which may be characterful and intriguing products of the brewers art, but I am content to keep drinking my Bavarian german biers.

Speaking of which, I will be making a happy visit to my favorite beer hall -- The Bavarian Grill, in Plano, Texas -- this evening to hoist a few steins of Bavaria's best and eat a few of those grilled nurnberger sausages. Prosit, y'all!

alsatian,
You aren't too ignorant when it comes to ales. The German wheat beers you list are among my favorites, especially the Weihenstephaner and Paulaner. These are actually brewed using an ale yeast and ale style brewing. Most people think that Ales are a British thing, and that all German beers are Lagers, but a few German beers use the Ale brew style and yeast. Also a lot of people think that all British beers are Ales, but many British style Stouts and Porters are lagered or a blend of both ale and lager brew. I'm definitly an Ale guy.

You sucked me in!! I love beer.
Fav's: Fat Tire-New Belgium
Guiness
Sweetwater H2O (they also make a "blue" which my cousin raves about.
Hacker Schorr Oktoberfest
Sunshine- not sure who brews that one. had it in AZ
Leinenkugel's out of Chippewa Falls WI is good all the way around
Sam Adams
Moose Drool

these are just a select few that i have sampled/drink. I love trying new regional beers. There is another beer out of rural wi that is named something with "squirrel", maybe Blonde Squirrel, that was pretty good too. I typically stay away from the mass brands.

did i mention that i also love a good whiskey?

Excellent!!! Me too. Either a Single Malt Scotch (The Glenlivet) or a Real Kentucky Bourbon (Wild Turkey). However I find that I drink more beer now than I do the hard stuff. The opposite used to be true. Of course I've never been more than an occasional social drinker.

Sam Adams does offer a few of my favorites, Stock Ale, Honey Porter, and Brown Ale. But, my favorite ales are from a brewery located about 50 minutes north of me. Odell Brewing in Ft Collins, CO.

Discovered a new one over the Holidays. Alaskan Winter Ale, excellent stuff. Too bad it's brewed only seasonal. Alaskan Brewing Co only started distributing to my state this past summer. Also found an excellent lager called Session Lager by Full Sail Brewing. It's basically a recreation of the full flavored lagers that were once brewed in this country prior to prohibition. Anyone who likes todays macro lagers should give Session a try.

We don't drink any alcoholic beverages at all but we like to hear the big beer cheer at our favorite restaurant. The customers there are always smiling and laughing. We like the fun there.

Since Westernhunter resurrected this old thread, thought I'd let you know that we can now purchase Red Stripe locally. So my husband bought some a couple weeks ago, but for reason it just wasn't the same without the palm trees, sea breezes and warm sand between my toes... Cry baby
