    Anyone who likes amber ales needs to try Railbender from Erie Brewing Company. I had some last week and this week I got some Smithwicks which I have always liked well after drinking the Railbender the Smithwicks taste like a light beer.

    Stella Artolis ...unless I am in Houston, then St. Arnolds Elissa IPA yum...

    I was going to say Stella as well. It's also the perfect beer to go with hot wings too! Like it was mentioned back at the beginning of this thread, if I know I'm going to do some serious eating, it's Miller Lite or something cheap, because I'll be downing a ton of it!

    I Have to ditto that!
  5. Prefer cold and/or free
  6. Stella is great as is Elissa...this time of year the St. Arnolds Summer Pils is great.

    If it's summertime it's Smuttynose IPA or Dogfish Head(60 min, 90 min or shelter pale ale). Winter it would be Brooklyn Brown Ale or Stone Smoked Porter.

    Love Dogfish Head! I've got a bottle of the Fort that I may have to crack into this weekend.
  9. I like a Samuel Smith Oatmeal Stout. Serves as a good breakfast for those early morning smokes!

    Sorry guys, I think you have it all wrong. FREE. Invite a few friends and have them bring the beer!!

    Ah yes, Sam Smith's Oatmeal Stout is a great breakfast in a bottle! I prefer their Taddy Porter, though.

    It's all about the Leinenkugel Sunset Wheat. And if it is a long smoke make sure to have full keg in the kegerator and plenty of friends......oh and don't forget to top it off with a good cigar.

    Jim Beam? I found it works good for me.

    Well if we are going into the evening smokes and move on to the liquor. Then it is all about Jack Daniels single barrel.

    Have to agree on both, and luckily both are readily available in my area. I like the nice sharp bite the Smutty IPA has.

    I do find both to be a little heavy though at times. My usual is Harpoon IPA.

    Got a chance to try Kiltlifter last year when I was working out in N Cal. Very fine brew. Also like their Hopsickle Triple. Might be going back out that way soon and looking forward to some of those brews.
