I mostly drink PBR or Coors Banquet Beer. On occaison, I'll buy drink some Shiner or Lone Star.

PBR just doesn't get the appreciation that it deserves. It's a pretty darn good beer for it's price range. Much better than most others in it's price range. I'll buy it once in a while, it's a good beer. Though I get a lot of shit from novice beer snobs when they see me drinking it, but I don't mind. Over all, Coors Banquet has always been my long-time favorite go-to beer, the one I enjoy most often, especially after mowing my lawn or while grilling up some burgers over wood/charcoal grill in the early evening during the warmer hotter months. Thumbs up

I hear that Sam Adams has a new beer out called "Utopias" it is aged for 12 years and contains 27% alcohol. Also hear it is well over $100 per bott?

Yup, except it's not really new. Utopius has been around for a while. It's sold at a place I buy beer but I've never had any desire to buy it. 27% alch is just too much for me when it comes to beer. I heard Jim Koch talk about how it's brewed and it sounds like the yeast had to be specially grown and cutivated because normal brewers yeast used for beer typically starts to die at the10% alc level. I can get my big bang from an occasional Wild Turkey or Genlivet if I want something high in alc content and much cheaper.

When it comes to beer I just want something that's drinkable. Sadly too many of America's Craft brews are just pushing the limits and getting too extream in flavor profile for me.

I gave up beer years ago. Went out with this girl once and had a beer or two and woke up married! So I decided to drown my sorrow and had a couple more. Next thing I knew, she was pregnate Brick Wall,)

Re: Beer Drinkers?

I drink any kind of beer. But I don't drink very often. When I buy beer, I usually get Miller High Life, but it stays in the frig for a looong time. I do like a good glass of Scotch over ice with a nice cigar every now and then. Stictly for medicinal purposes you see.

Re: Beer Drinkers?

Every retailer on the front range has sold out of Coors Winterfest. Sadly Coors didn't brew as much as they usually have in the past and most everyone along the front range sold out of it by Christmas. Luckily I have a couple six packs left. They have disassociated this years Winterfest from the Coors name, now saying it's brewed by AC Golden Brewery, which happens to exist within the main Coors brewery in Golden. Luckily they released a limited anount of Herman Josephs in retail stores around Christmas and I snagged some up after New Years. I guess AC Golden will now be the specialty brewing arm of Coors and will handle the Wintefest and Herman Josephs brews from now on. Coors actually can make some really excellent small batch speciaty beers that they only release in Colorado and in limited amounts. Stuff like the new remake of Herman Josephs, Winterfest, and the Barmen Pilsner. I sure wish they would make this specialty market a bigger part of their business.

Re: Beer Drinkers?

Hey WesternH
Back in the (very) early 80s I lived for a spell in Fort Collins. Use to drink Henery Weinhards (sp?) when we had cash and Little Kings (I think it was called) when we were low on big bills. They still got little kings? Havent even thought about that beer since I moved back east.
