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.

Root beer (diet).

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.

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.
