Alright lets talk BEER!!!!

Actually myself and my little brother and in the process of setting up a website to list all the different beers we have tried in the past 4-5 years. We are closing in on 400 different beers, and the list is growing every week. I will post a link once its up and running.

As for my favorite beers, I have a saying.....the worst beer I have ever tried I would still give a ranking of SEVEN THUMBS UP!!!. I love all beers from Coors Light to St-Ambroise Oatmeal Stout. I have grown a dislike to some white beers (Paulander, Blanche de Chambly, Hoegaarden), because I got sick after drinking them (I didn't get sick from overdrinking, or the taste, but after having a couple I got the flu...unrelated to the beer), and now I associate that taste to being sick. I know it's weird, but....

I've got quite a broad taste for beer. As it's summer, I'm drinking more cold lager, usually Stella Artois, Heineken or Corona. Yes, people have said that Stella and Heineken are cheap, manufactured crap, but for lagers they aren't bad, and they're still miles ahead of Budweiser and Coors. If I'm feeling like something a bit different I'll often go for Budvar or Staropramen.

When the weather gets cooler I enjoy Old Speckled Hen, Hobgoblin, Goliath, Fiddler's Elbow (yes, I'm a huge Wychwood fan), Chimay, Hog's Back TEA, St. Peter's, Riggwelter, and Newcastle Brown Ale, to name a few.

Interesting to see the comment about Japanese beer, and for the most part I agree. Asahi is awful, Sapporo and Kirin are passable but aren't much better. The best Japanese beer that I've tried is Suntory Malt's, which was actually quite tasty.

Some favorites, in no particular order:

Leffe
Molson Brador
Sam Adams lager
Rolling Rock
Bass Ale
Corsendonk
J.W. Dundee IPA

I find Corona, while refreshing on a hot day, is the most overpriced beer in the US. No way it should be nearly twice the price of Bud, Coors, etc. It's a Mexican import! What other Mexican import costs more than the US equivalent?

Fav. local beers:

Creemore
Steamwhistle

I like Creemore better, but I'm big into the buying local movement, and SW is brewed down the street. I'm upset that I haven't seen more votes for Creemore, although I suppose all you Quebec kids probably can't get it.

Fav. foreign beer:

Stiegl. It's Austrian, and much better on tap than it is in cans. Not terribly popular in North America, sadly.

I have to admit that I enjoy Miller Genuine Draft, but it has to be really cold. Blue Light and Molson Canadian are also good beers. Budweiser isn't too bad. I also enjoy Corona. I don't know if I have a favourite beer per se, but those five I enjoy and buy with regularity.

I like all beer.

That said, my preference (depending on temperature and mood)

Boddingtons (summer)
Newcastle (fall)
Harp (springtime)
Kostritzer (winter)

I also do enjoy a good Rickards White or a Sleeman Genuine Draft


I will never say no to a Bleue Dry or a Molson ex.

I like these 2.

I have a taste for cheap American beer. Summer day, out of the can, the worse the swill, the more it pleases me. 1.25 six packs with brand names that scare your guests, I love it.

I have spent last summer in Toronto and let me tell you that I fell in love with Creemore the first time I tasted it! Steamwhistle not so much but I really really loved the Creemore.

I was also surprised to find some Unibroue products at the local beer store

I meant what Mexican import--of any product--costs more than the US-made item? Mexican goods are supposed to be cheaper. Guess we blame NAFTA for the high price of Corona.

those 3 are my favorites.
The Kostritzer is from Germany 4,8%
The Bitburger is from Germany too 4,8 %
The Kilkenny is a irish beer 5%

This is two good places to pass by if you are in mauricie.

http://www.troududiable.com/ : shawinigan microbrasserie ( beer to try : Le sang d'encre (gold medal mondial of the beer 2007)
Your palate mirrors mine quite a bit. I drink plenty of Kostritzer dark beer around here, on tap if possible. Bitburger too.

I'm a long-time white beer drinker as well, in the style of Hoegaarden.

I used to like going to Cheval Blanc for their offerings, when living in Montreal. Is it still open these days?

My taste is in fact all over the place. I like some of the Belgian fruit beers as well, like Liefmans Cassis. I like a good triple-fermented Trappiste beer. And Newcastle, especially with Indian curry.

Mmm, I love shooters night at Peel Pub...too bad there's such little alcohol in them. I was there for drinks night too, and their vodka cranberries were mostly juice.

I like Carlesberg and Alexander Keiths. I can stomach Molson Dry and if nothing else, Corona (but I really don't like it). I can't stand Molson Canadian or Boreale Blonde (let's just say McGill frosh has made me vow never to drink that crap again).

Y'all need to try the Super Bock, a portuguese beer that tastes a lot like canadian beers... a very good summer beer, sold at the SAQ.
