Barbara L - right you are! I meant to type Steinbeck, and it came out Hemmingway. I've read the book, seen the movie and been to Monterey numerous times (great aquarium) so I don't know how I made that mistake in the first place, plus never caught it after the fact.

Corona with a lime, of course!
Sierra Nevada Pale Ale
MGD
Coors

But what I like the most is usually the company that comes with drinking beer. There is nothing like having a bunch of friends over to watch a game or a NASCAR race and drink some beer.

I generally have HORRIBLE luck with the SA beers. I think it has to do with the distribution. Some of the fresh kegs are very good (like the Bos. Lager and the Octoberfest), but some of the bottles that I've gotten have been wretched (and they should have still been fresh).

As for the Octoberfests making the rounds right now, the Hofbrauhaus is now importing one, and it's pretty good, but my current favorite is probably still the Spaten, if my brewing buddy doesn't have any of his own on tap - that stuff is awesome.

Hey John

I used to drink a lot of Budwiser. . but I guess my tastebuds matured a little. . . once I started drinking Sam, I haven't really liked too much more. . .of course there is always that Corona and lime on a hot summer day!!!!!

Wow I didn't even know there were that many beers available...well maybe I did...but still impressive!

The college stories take me back! I thought I was the only one!

Anyway, I like most of the Omegang brews especially the ones they make only for local festivals!

Freshly poured Black and Tans..lets see that would be Guiness Stout and what is the tan?

A black and tan is generally Guiness and Harp (made from the same brewer), but the most common version in US bars seems to use Bass Ale instead. Most any british bitter would work, as lond as it's specific gravity is higher than that of the Guiness, which allows the 'black' to float on the 'tan'.

Thats it! The Cooperstown Restaurant does use Harp, because they have Harp on the menu. Its been sooo long since I've been out to eat or drink!

I am not really a beer drinker but I when I do have a beer, the absolute best is any beer by Leinenkugels made in WI.
