OT: Favourite Beer(s)?
 
This is by far and away a question that I've failed time and time again to provide just ONE answer to because I love the frosty, delicious taste of a good brew that damned much. Can be ale, lager, pilsner, stout, bock, porter, whatever. There's just something special about a good beer.

My top 10 in no particular order (I can't name just one, never works):

1. Rickard's Red
2. Great Lakes (Cleveland, OH) Edmund Fitzgerald porter
3. Molson Canadian
4. Pyramid (Seattle, WA) Apricot ale
5. Sleeman Honey Brown
6. Alexander Keith's IPA
7. Great Lakes (Cleveland, OH) Dortmunder Gold lager
8. Yuengling (Pottsville, PA) Black and Tan
9. Kokanee
10. Appalachian Brewing Co. (Harrisburg, PA) Scottish ale

Please share your favourite domestics, imports, microbrews, etc. I'll never get tired of trying new brews.

I don't like beer mainly, but I actually enjoy Guinness.

Is that strange?

TOP 10

1. Sleeman Cream Ale
2. Sleeman Draft
3. Bud Light
4. MGD
5. Steam Whistle
6. Molson Canadian
7. Sleeman Honey Brown
8. Heinekan
9. Moose Head
10. Kokanee

One and only choice of a buck a beer is MacLays. Its a Scottish Beer made by Sleeman and it is great! Also Sapporo is a great Japanese Beer. Same company that just recently bought out John Sleeman.

SaucyNavel 06-18-2008 07:25 PM

anything but Molson.......


Kokanee Gold is where it's at

RKD 06-18-2008 07:26 PM

In no particular order:

Dark -

Guinness
Newcastle Brown Ale
Kokanee Gold
Sleeman (anything by them I love)
Rickard's Red

Lighter -

Kokanee
Stella
Heineken
Alexander Keith's
Rickard's White

If I were to pick a favorite of these, Newcastle has and always will be my first choice at the liquor store.

There are a number of North American micro-breweries that make German-style weissbier that are nearly as good as Franziskaner or Schneider.

But you are right, macro-brewed North American beer just doesn't cut it.

You like porter but your two favorites are Rickard's and Canadian? :help:

Ooo I haven't had a sleeman's honey in ages!
I think I'll go for that this weekend haha

Furiousz Czerkawski 06-18-2008 07:45 PM

Anton's Okanagan Pale Ale (microbrewed at Anton's Pasta Bar in Burnaby), Stella, Hoegaarden, Sleeman's Honey Brown, Rickard's Red, the occasional Keith's, and Sol isn't bad if I'm lounging at Julio's Barrio with a plate of steak fajitas.

Oh, and, for what it's worth, I absolutely detest Strongbow.

thrillhous 06-18-2008 07:46 PM

Mine is the Rochefort 10 but I don't get to drink it often, so I would say it is Unibroue's La Fin du Monde.

Yup, looks like it. Newcastle is my favorite as well. A big bottle of Newcastle while sitting on the patio at the Ship and Anchor here in Calgary is one of my favoritest ways to spend an evening or afternoon. Have you tried Alexander Keiths Red or Negra Modelo?

smackdaddy 06-18-2008 08:03 PM

No order, usually depends on my mood.

Alexander Keiths Amber Ale
Heineken
MGD (Although I hear Miller Lite in the US is supposed to be excellet.. never tried it though)
Big Rock varieties

Used to be a big Sleeman fan, but lately I think their quality has gone down.
