Boris Bold Extra Strong Beer - not my favorite, but it's what I'm drinking at the moment and it's surprisingly OK. Really.

Normally beers over 6% can be a little on the awful side, but this one is alright. Oh yeah, had one on a recent trip that was decent as well.

Petra Beer: 8%

Don't partake for a while and then have a couple of these guys. If you're a bit dehydrated it may even be a bit better. Wowee.

Bavaria - Strong Imported "Blond" Beer - 7.9%

Very good. Kinda sweet. Not a favorite, but better than Boris Bold Extra Strong Beer AND Petra Beer for sure. Smooth on the finish and packs a punch. Wait, it may be a favorite... Yes indeed. I'd buy this one again along with Boris Bold Extra Strong Beer and Petra Beer.

No Budweiser fans here? Come on !!!! Throw em in the freezer for a bit and it goes down like water. Also shotgunning a Molson Cold Shot gets the night off to a great start!!!

Just one Boris and one Bavaria. I know my limits fortunately, unlike some...

I would recommend the two beers though. They are rather decent brews. Certainly a very nice surprise. Normally, when I go out on a limb and choose different varieties I haven't tried before, I usually wind up not liking something. Not this time. Both were very good, although you must be prepared for the % content. At ~ 8% each... well... just be aware of what you can and cannot handle.

For some it's not about how easy the beer goes down, it's what it tastes like. If I can't savour how a beer tastes I won't drink more than one.

HM: Wellington Arkell (Best Bitter), Waterloo Dark, Guinness

Gezz, its pretty easy to judge peoples age based off what they drink....

My favs..

Warsteiner
Guiness
Kroenenberg
Hoegaarden
Corona (in the summer)

So many imports that I cant think of right now, but if its made in Europe and not a pilsner I will probably like it.

Rickards and Velvet Fog are the only domestics I can really drink.

I havnt had a beer for 2 months though, this thread is really making me miss it.

The Northwest US is one of the best places i've ever lived in terms of amount of beers. There is so many micro-breweries there it's incredible.

I lived there for 8 months and I can't even count the number of different beers I had.

The best part is the supermarkets were cool in that they priced each beer in a 6 pack individually, so if you wanted you could grab a 6 pack, and fill it with 6 random beers and try them out.

with that being said though, my favorite beers are most definitely from Germany

Well between the comments of shotgunning beers, stealing daddys beer, buying beer thats no less than 6%, and buying the cheap stuff because good beer is expensive; it sounds like myself when I was 17 or 18. I guess I just assume and hope peoples tastes for beer evolves from that.

Been there done that, Yes to the beer, big pint for a dollar and big YEs to the women. Pilsener Urquell is a great beer.

When I was there I didnt like Pilsener Urquell that much, but there were several others I liked. But I REALLY liked the woman haha.

I would herby like to pass an admendment that any poster stating Pilsner as their favorite beer should be stricken from making any further posts in the thread

For real though, not sure how poeple drink that stuff.

I would like to give a shout out to some local brewerys. I actually drink mostly local brewed.

Ally Cat-Full moon and aprikat are great
Amber-Sap Vampire, a maple beer is great and also Australian pepper berry.

other than that

Guiness, Kilkenny, any honey brown, Kokannee.
