Lowenbrau is my favorite. It ha an interesting history dating back to 1358 in Munich. Second is Grolsch a Dutch beer it has a porcelain cap top with a wire spring holding it in place. Also like Ballantine India Pale Ale. Rolling Rock, I guess I could keep going now that I think of it. Probably a shorter list of what I don't like. I like to use Guinness for cooking.

Most of the Mircobrews I get for Shrek do not have forum friendly names

I should have said beers I used to like. Now I only drink N.A. beers. O'douls Amber is my favorite. Sharps next and then O'Douls Green or N.A. Bud. My only regret is that I never had a Sam Adams or any of the many specialty and Microbrews that are on the market today.

What??? You live in the Northeast and have never had a Sam Adams? Sam Adams is no longer a microbrew. If you look at their site, they now have breweries in several places and are fast climbing up to the top. They are also expanding to overseas. But their original plant in Jamaica Plain is still in operation and going strong.

Unfortunately Sam Adams Beer wasn't invented until after I stopped drinking beer with alcohol. Like I said we all have regrets. Also remember Coor's wasn't even shipped East of the Rockies. Hulls Lager and Hull's Cream Ale were the last regional beers made in our state. I know Hul's was very popular around Yale but if I remember, it didn't do much for my taste buds.

I remember those days...Coor's was also shipped in refrigerated trucks as I recall.
On a side note...I have a friend who claims that he has (*ahem* I reckon I best not regale y'all with the details...) Let's just say that Rocky Mountain stream was a tick saltier than it shoulda been one day.

Nope! It had a higher alcohol content than other brands and above what the eastern states allowed for beer. For Massachusetts it was 10%.
