What is your favorite Beer?

Every year, my mother in law comes to town and each time we buy a lot of beer. This year we came across a really nice beer out of Denver, Flying Dog. If you like a really bitter beer, The Pale Ale and the Golden ale are fantastic.

They have fantastic names for each of their brews,
  • Doggie Style Pale Ale - nice and bitter but with a really good finish. Goes well with just about any food.
  • In Heat Wheat - its their Hefeweisen, I haven't tried it yet, as far as Hefe's go I am particular to Paulaner.
  • Old Scratch Amber Larger - Again, bitter but with a pleasant maltiness to it.
  • Road Dog Scottish Porter - its on my list to try next.
  • Tire Bite Golden Ale - I really liked this, tasted good with the chicken I spit roasted last night.
  • Snake Dog IPA - Haven't tried this one but it is on my list to try next.
There's only one place in Wheaton MD I can get it, luckily its close by.

Last year's favorite was Warsteiner, a nice bitter German beer. At the beginning of the summer the favored beer was the Sierra Nevada.

So what's your favorite beer?

Stella Artoris for something light
Guinness for something rich
Murphys or Boddingtons for something creamy and smooth
Purple haze or a good Lambic for something sweet
Widmere hefewiezen for the Summer time goodness
Sierra Nevada Pale ale for all purpose needs

I like all the one you have listed with the exception of the porter, not that big a fan.

I'm allergic to beer so I don't have a favorite one that'll put me in the hospital I'm afraid to say

Guiness I find to be over rated, mind you there is a time and place for it. I only drink stout when it gets colder, I like my pilsners, lagers, and IPA's too much

I used to like Dos Equis Amber best. Now I prefer Negra Modela.

The beer of the country I happen to be in at the time, as long it's not the United States. I like San Miguel IN the Pilipines, and I like Molson's IN Canada, and I like Carte Blanca IN Mexico, and I like Banks or Red Stripe IN the Caribbean. The swill they deport to the U.S. is pastuerized and alcohol controlled (by U.S. law, so it's not THEIR fault) and tastes completely different, and not in a good way either!

In the U.S., some of Sam Adams' varieties aren't TOO bad, and certain local microbrews, i.e. Anchor Steam Ale in San Francisco, I find acceptable. but all in all, Government regulation and control has ruined beer here, pretty much just like it ruins everything else.
