Sorry Avianca, didn't you mean to post this in Non-Av?

As far as my favourite beer is concerned, it's Budweiser. It pays my bills  (mostly)

As far as drinking is concerned, my favourite among our products is Becks (and no, I won't refuse Stella). I like Bass and Boddingtons as well. For a short time we had Spaten on tap in our J. K. Labatt lounge as well, I loved it. Unfortunately, the brand is not available in Canada. Of our Canadian products I prefer the Keith's family, Labatt 50, Kootenay True Ale and the Jockey Club.
Beside that, I like many craft beers, especially with bitterness above 30BU

You know what? I pretty much like them all   Even a cheap swill light beer has its place *occasionally* (like on a hot day on the patio, that's about it).

I've really gotten into homebrewing lately. I am in the process of making my first lager ever. It is almost done (you beer guys will understand: right now at SG 1.015, needs to get a little more towards 1.010 or so). Summer is coming up and I plan on making lots of beer to get me and my neighborhood through the hot days!

Chimay Bleue , Orval, Kwak.... always remember, if it's not Belgian it probably shouldn't be calling itself 'beer' (no, Stella Artois does not count even though it does come from Belgium) .

Why not?

I have had plenty of "fruity" beers which have done the job of drinking the beer in the first place...

In fact, a favorite beer of mine is 21st Amendment's Hell of High Watermelon Wheat Beer. Delicious!

I enjoy hoppy IPA's and my two favorites right now are:

Sculpin IPA by Ballast Point Brewing Co.

And:

Pliny the Elder by Russian River Brewing Co.

I also really like Booya Steez brewed by Port Brewing Co. but it is not a regular brew, more seasonal.

I'm a big fan of white beers (be they German or otherwise) so I'd have to say my top favorites are:


Kronenbourg Blanc ($13.00 for a 6 pack in Ontario..ouch)
and


Blanche de Chamby

Other favorites from the macrobrew selection in Ontario include Sleeman Original Draft and Cream Ale as well as Rickards White. International beers I favor are Grolsch, Erdinger (again a WeissBeer), and Czechvar (the Budweiser of CZ).

I agree with that remark! 
No, just kidding, other countries have decent/good beers too, however Belgian beers still remain my favorites though.

Lately, I'm really into Tripel beers of all sort, but for the moment Chimay Tripel is on the no 1 spot right now, followed closely by Bush Amber (it is like 12%, heavy stuff), but it tastes really great!

As for the Lager/Pilsner, there is so much difference in the way it is served (tap, cans, bottles,...) and how long it has been stored (a week or a month), that it tasted sometimes so differently, I really can't pick a favorite one.
I can enjoy a Jupiler/Stella/Primus so much one day, and a couple of days later in another bar it can't really satisfy me. On the end of a hot summer day, give me any decent pils, I'll drink it with a big smile.
