What's your favorite beer?

Post by miranda » Thu Jun 22, 2006 1:14 pm

I'm sure this has been addressed before, but I'm not in the mood to go searching for a previous thread.

And, since this the Corner Pub, for those of you who drink beer, what's your favorite variety?

Right now I really love Lindeman's Cassis Lambic ale:

Raspberries and beer initially sounded like a hideous combination, but this Belgian ale is truly delicious. Slightly sweet and fruity without being cloying. It isn't cheap--my local liquor store sells it for $4.99 per bottle--but it's wonderful as an occasional indulgence; perfect for dessert.

I also like Guinness, and St. Peter's Cream Stout. I generally prefer dark beer to light beer.

I've tried a variety of european/american beers as recommended on a yahoo finance article one weekend. Gave his best pick. Some were OK, but
I'm back to good ol Rolling Rock. Smooth and simple beer.

Got a favorite brand, Ralph?

Also, is the woman pictured in your signature Charlotte Gainsbourg?

Yep Karl, latrobe Pennsylvania. Not sure why folks here have to look overseas for a great mid bodied beer.
Guess it looks cool if you're seen holding a foreign beer, impresses the women at the bar :-)

I'm more or less with Ralph now, preferring Henry Weinhard's root beer, but in my drinking days Anchor Steam Beer headed the list--preferably with an Old Bushmills back.
"Most men, including those at ease with problems of the greatest complexity, can seldom accept even the simplest and most obvious truth if it would oblige them to admit the falsity of conclusions which they have delighted in explaining to colleagues, which they have proudly taught to others, and which they have woven, thread by thread, into the fabric of their lives." ~Leo Tolstoy

"It is the highest form of self-respect to admit our errors and mistakes and make amends for them. To make a mistake is only an error in judgment, but to adhere to it when it is discovered shows infirmity of character." ~Dale Turner

"Anyone who doesn't take truth seriously in small matters cannot be trusted in large ones either." ~Albert Einstein
"Truth is incontrovertible; malice may attack it and ignorance may deride it; but, in the end, there it is." ~Winston Churchill

Those are basically my favorites, although I am also highly fond of porters

Fosters, Guinness, Dos Equis in a pinch, Killian's Irish Red in a pinch.

The other day, I broke down and bought a case of Fosters from the Booze Police here. One can get Guinness in the grocery stores here, but not Fosters.

I tend to prefer Pilsners to other beers. Lagers are ok, too. I guess my favorite is probably the Samuel Adams Octoberfest beer. Another good one is a local beer called Rio Grande Pils, one of 6 beers produced by the Rio Grande Brewing Co. here in Albuquerque.
