Hey everyone,

My roommate and I were trying a new brand of South American beer. I already forgot what it was called, except it had a turtle on it. Anyway, I wanted to know what all of your favorite beers are. One foreign beer, another domestic beer, and one microbrew. I'll start first.


Foreign Beer:
Kingfisher (India): Strong and Sharp but not too bitter  Big thumbs up. 10x Better than Haywards 5000.


Domestic Beer:
I'll go with Miller Genuine Draft.


Microbreweries:
Any brews by Full Sail Brewing Co. in Hood River, OR. I have yet to try "Rip Curl"

Man I had some King Fisher the other week, that stuff is no joke. I hadn't had it in a few years. I thought it was quite bitter, though it wasn't terribly fresh.

Favorite beer: Blue Moon Ale
Favorite water beer: Miller Light

My favorite new beer is Saranac's Black Forest Beer. Very smooth and has a medium-heavy body.

Other regular buys for me are Labatt's Blue, Tecate, Dos Quis Lager, Rolling Rock...

My favorite Euro beer is Hosgarden. I believe its the original Belgian ale. Absolutely fantastic. Plus the name is fun to order. You can usually find it on tap and some good places, ask for it.

Northwest Micros, I like everything Pike Brewing makes, especially the Kilt Lifter Ale.

I'm a fan as well of the Rogue brews, the porters are great. I was at Seattle's Grillfest next to the Rogue guys, and they hooked me up. Really great people! Food for beer & pint glasses is an even trade if you ask me.

As far as mainstream, I always have some Heineken and Pacifico on hand. I found a load of Bud Dry down in New Mexico, haven't seen that for years. If I'm back in my hometown with all my friends, its usually a fridge full of Rainier, the beer from here (at least it used to be)!

During the winter I usually just drink Molson, must be from all the hockey I watch.

Import: I have to break the rules, I've got two. For general purpose, Bass is the absolute best. Also, I have to give a nod to Bishop's Finger, which I have only found rarely in the States. Known affectionately in the UK as "Nun's Delight". How can you not love that. I also had a dachshund for 11 years named Watney, after bleedin' Watney's Red Barrel. He was indeed a red barrel.

Domestic: Sam Adams Boston Lager

Micro: Ipswich Ale.

Mmmmmm...beer

Dmeeky,
I have also had Hoegarden, and it is probably one of the best beers I am ever had. Lucky for me there is a place within walking distance that has it on tap.

That's right, I was blown away a few years ago when I had it. There's a place nearby me with it on tap too thankfully, I believe it was founded in what? 14-something? Pretty old, but really really good.

How come no one from the UK has weighed in on this? They must all be down the pub. I seem to remember that when I went there in 1993, lots of people were drinking Budweiser. Ughhhh.

Favorite European Beer: I really don't have a singular favorite, as I enjoy a number of them, particularly several UK & Irish brews. Bass, Newcastle, Tetley's English Ale,Whitbread (Shockingly now being brewed for the US market up in Cincinnati, along with Mackeson's Triple Stout), Boddington's, Guinness, Beamish, Harp and Murphy's (Stout and Amber). I'm beginning to get into some of the high gravity brews from Europe and really like some of the offerings from Belgium.

Mainstream US beer: Samuel Adams Boston Lager and Boston Ale are my favorites, but some of their other offerings are pretty good as well.

US Microbrew: Sweetwater 420. I got to support the local brewery (Especially since we're down to two with Dogwood Brewing closing up shop), and this is my favorite offering from them.

US Microbrew (Not available in my area yet): New Belgium Fat Tire Amber Ale. I tried this beer back in April when I was in Vegas (The Westward Ho had these for $1.99 a bottle), and this beer is SMOOTH. It's so smooth I didn't realize I had drank an entire bottle in less than 10 minutes.

I completely forgot about Fat Tire. I guess I must take it for granted since its everywhere here! They're quite a progressive thinking brewery as well. Over 90% of their brewery is supplied by natural light. If you work for them for one year, they give you a fat tire bicycle as a gift, and if you work for them for 5 years you're rewarded with a trip to Belgium. Now that's taking care of your employees! My friend is from Colorado, nearby that brewery, so he's usually got a fridge full of it, unless its economy time and then its pissy Coors Light.

Another micro I really like is Hit the Trail Ale from vermont's Long Trail Brewing Company. In a market filled with Taste-alike hoppy ales, this one is head and shoulders above most in terms of flavor and fidelity to style.

Newcastle Nut Brown Ale


Mackeson Triple Stout is a UK brew in name only in the US, they brew it up in Ohio (along with Whitbred) for the US market. There is no such beer as Newcastle Nut Brown Ale, there is a Newcastle Brown Ale.

Micro: Um... probably Saranac, I'm really not a microbrew guy though.

I wish I could find either Carlton or Twohey's here... fond memories from Aussie.

I guess I had a few too many Newcastle Brown Ales! Perhaps Mackeson XXX may be "brewed under supervision." But, this Whitbread/Mackeson Triple XXX Stout was English in origin. Please see, links. It was a Father's Day gift, we all enjoyed a bottle. It was extremely expensive for a 6-pack!
