Favorite Beer - Page 2

post #21 of 188

I am with some others on this.  Whatever you buy and chill, I will be gracious enough to enjoy with you!

post #22 of 188

My personal favorites are:

1. Moose Drool

2. Negra Modelo

3. Newcastle

4. Birra Moretti/Kirin Ichiban (tied)

5. Sapporo


These are all pretty close in preference, but different. I mostly like dark and brown ales, but Sapporo, Kirin Ichiban and Moretti seem to brew lagers with a nice flavor and texture without being watery.

I love Captain Trips Cosmic Ale(IPA), Monkey on the Mainline Porter, Dark Star Ale(Brown Ale). Those are my 3 main beers I make. Haven't found too many commercials that can match them.

For commercials I love Racer 5, Triple Karmeleit, Samichlaus. Love the fresh hop brews a few breweries have out now. Terrapin Hopsecutioner is my usual one when I have to buy some for just drinking.

post #24 of 188

Racer 5's a good one.

Commercial beers simply fall flat on their faces compared to micro brews and homebrews. 

Moose Drool is awesome, because it's really complex, Big Sky did a great job formulating it. I'm waiting for Spring when they'll start selling Troutslayer again!

It's ridiculous, I work at a hotel that's a major wine-country destination, but their beer selection is pathetic, varieties of piss in a can, such as bud, bud light, coors, coors light and corona, then they have better ones like Guinness and heineken, and their best selection is Fat Tire. A+ wine list, D- beer list.

I'd hoped for at least something local, like Anchor Steam, and Napa Brewsmith to crop up, but so far, so bad.

Moose Drool is good. I have a friend that makes a very good clone of it. I hate going to nice places and all they have are the BMC beers. And you ask for an import and they say. Oh yeah, we have Corona and Heineken too. Like that's something special or something. Makes me want to gag.

Hey Scott, maybe he did know you, but after drinking all of those beers on his list, he might not remember you.  th_dunno-1[1].gif

Yup. It wouldn't be the first time.

post #31 of 188

Yup, WNC = Western NC

Yes, I have brewed but not since I moved here 3 years ago.

I actually just started buying the stuff to brew again, but have not started a batch yet.

Unfortunately spare time is scarce because of work.

I work 6 days a week which means little time for smoking, riding motorcycles, brewing beer, and the many other activities I like to do or would like to try doing.


I am a just a huge beer fanatic....obviously. 

I have been known to have up to 36 (maybe more) different kinds of beer in my fridge at one time.

Nice thing about being a beer connoisseur is that it is a hobby I can enjoy every day weather I have an hour or 12 hours. lol

Thanks, and like mentioned I have had more in the arsenal in the past (I would say 2 doz is the average though and that is 22).


As far as the Crib goes, I got it cheap.

Nobody ever believes what I pay.

Stone Oaked Arrogant Bastard

GreenFlash IPA

Stone Imperial Russian Stout

So far those are the clear favorites but am always trying new stuff. Does anyone know where I can get Yuengling in the So Cal area or in Las Vegas? I've been looking but have not had any luck.

post #34 of 188

In Ohio ...Rolling Rock

Another one of my favorites, but I can not get it here.

Used to be able to but they never got it in this last year.

I can drive about 30+ miles though and get it in SC or pick it up when I go visit my sister in Ga.


I do need to make an SC beer run again though as I have not in a while and there are several things down there I like that I can not get up here.




post #36 of 188

Some of our norms: Amber Bock, Shock Top Belgian White, Cable Car, dos equis amber and Mich Ultra




post #37 of 188

I have over my life drank many good beers, here are a few of my favorite ones.

  1. Pabst Blue Ribbon
  2. Miller Genuine Draft
  3. Boulevard (Any Flavor as it is local to KC)
  4. Samuel Adams


And of course I can't forget to mention a couple that a friend sent me from Montana that I really liked and have to include.


If I could get these two in Kansas they would be at the top of my list...


Pig Ass Porter - a world class dark ale (You Gotta Love The Name...LOL)

Beltian White - a delicious wheat beer with a hint of citrus

I think Guinness Stout is considered lunch.  However, it's high on my list.  Shiner was was what I drank while living in Texas.  I was surprised to see that you can get it here in San Diego. 


In no particular order, I also like:  Negra Modelo, Killian's Red, Pete's Wicked Ale . . .

 . . . and a San Diego local - Red Trolley.

You can get it pretty much anywhere.

It is sold here in NC too.
