A close second for me to Guinness. I love the creaminess of Boddingtons.

I had a great White bear the other night, bought at Whole Foods, now I can't remember the darned name...it was all Belgium though, very nice.

Miller Lite is my staple.

good choice for a light colored beer(not a "light beer"). I do love the darker stuff. If you really want to take a hit--try Three Philosophers.... Great flavor, huge power.

Love beer & ale, especially the darker, bittersweet stuff. I'm a black-n-tan kind of girl.

Mass-produced Favorites:

Bass
Guiness
Samuel Smith's Nut Brown Ale
Pyramid Apricot Ale
Sea Dog Blueberry Wheat Beer

I've had some very delicious microbrews at the Northampton Brewery in western MA. Love their pale ale.

I seem to recall liking Blackened Voodoo Lager and Magic Hat's Fat Angel APA, among others...But it's been a long while since I went through my serious Experimental Beer Phase, and lately I just stick with my easy-to-find favorites.

I'm much more into wine these days.

I just did a story on 'Innis & Gunn" in Edinburgh Scotland. They make the most incredible oak aged beer; my new favourite!
The beer was originaly made to "flavour" the oak casks, then dumped down the drain before the casks were filled with whisky. The owners realised that the guys on the shop floor were taking the beer home instead of dumping it all... and it was born.

look for the story on my website in the next two weeks. (there is even a bunch of guys in kilts, if you like that sort of thing).

Stone Brewing does an Oaked Arrogant Bastard Ale variation of their standard Arrogant. It's purty fine. They're actually bottling it in 12 oz. bottles now. It used to just be a 3 liter concoction.

I'm not a big beer drinker. It's just not my thing, usually. But I love Leinenkugel's Sunset Wheat. My brother and I tried it together and both of us, after the first sip, said that it reminded us of Fruity Pebbles cereal.

I had my first Boddingtons Pub Ale in Dolserau Hall outside Dolgellau, Wales. The inn keeper apologized to me for being out of Guinness and offered up the Boddingtons as a substitute. I've been a fan of it ever since.

ice cold corona with a piece of lime squeezed in.

tried the new chill from miller life but didn't care for it much and certainly wasn't worth the price.
