My favorite is the brand thats on sale at the grocery store.
I like all beer. Cheap beer seems to be what I like the most.
I like a nice dark beer now and again.
But for everyday use, Bud Light is in the fridge right now. Last time it was Natural Light. And before that I think it was Busch Light.
They are all good.

Same here.

The only beer I like is in my memory. An ice-cold Labatt's Blue on a hot summer day, on an island in Lake Erie, with friends. I don't like the bitterness of beer, but that day, it went down easy.

I can assure that it was the setting, not the beer.

I would have to be very thirsty to drink Labatt's Blue.

Guinness Stout
Yuengling
Arrogant Bast*rd
Dos Equis
Sierra Nevada Celebration Ale
That's about it, these days.

Oh, absolutely. And I was very thirsty. Nowadays, I bring my own wine

I have a saying about the first two beers on a hot day after busting butt, "The first ones for thirst and the second ones for taste." The first one gets slammed so fast, there isn't time to taste it.

Found the link to this article in my Facebook feed today: Best Beers in America - The Best States for Beer Lovers Since we've been discussing beer I though it might be of interest.

Top three are all along the west coast (no surprise there) but my favorite Ohio brewery, Great Lakes Brewing Company, gets love right off the top for my home state. Thirsty Dog is just a few miles from our son's place, and I'm so wanting to try something by Fat Tire since I saw that one in a top-ten (top-five?) craft brewery list a few weeks back. That list also included Cigar City Brewing in Tampa. Plan on hunting it down if we can find it bottled or on tap, or might decide to make a trip up to Tampa just for fun.

Pretty interesting article. Our grocery store has a decent offering of off the beaten path beverages. Reminds me that last week I saw Dale's Pale Ale (which, though brewed in Brevard, NC, has no apparent connection to Dale Earnhardt, Jr.) Gonna have to give it a try....Pale Ale in a can!
Further research yields that the Oskar Blues brewery is based in Colorado and they opened a brewery in Brevard in 2012. Reviews indicate that North Carolina version is different from the Colorado version but both both have gotten good reviews. I reckon I will have to scrape together my nickels and dimes to get some and report back.
