My own homebrewed Weissbier or any of my own homebrews. They're all much fresher and tastier than any store-bought beer.

When I don't have any in the fridge, I'll take any good German weissbier.

I also like Double Bocks like Celebrator (but I forget who brews it), Spaten's Optimator, and Paulaner Salvator.

I like pretty much any good quality German beer.

The Czech beer Pilsner Urquell is also one of my favorites.

Guinness Stout is very good. I enjoy it.

Newcastle Brown, Honey Brown, Saranac (NY), Yuengling Black & Tan and Yuengling Porter (PA). I remember Samuel Smith and 6X being OK too.

The dark beers, Guinness and kin, are to my liking.  In the domain of light beers, a Becks is up my alley.

DON'T try Tuborg!....at least not in Turkey where they have licence to brew it.  It is much too sweet and will have you swear off beer.

Amazing! Serge and I agree, especially on the Yuenglings. The only "domestic" yellow I favored at all was Henry Wienhart's Private Reserve, but it's hard to find fresh.

To our "across the pond" friends, most of your excellent beers and ales are not fully enjoyed here because in my experience they go stale before they are distributed and consumed here.

I like anything microbrew, especially on tap. There is a local Texas beer called Shiner Bock, that is delicious on tap.

I have been once to a German bar and the beer was wonderful. The only name I remember was "Paulaner Weisse." It was a yeast beer, and it was delicious.

As far as mexican beers goes, I run the gamut. Lately I have been drinking Dos Equis for mexican beer (BTW all mexican beer is horrible, but I drink it anyway), and Michelob for domestic.

That dang microbrew is just too expensive.
Title: Re:What is your favorite beer?
Post by: David on January 19, 2004, 02:28:56 PM
You can find Shiner Bock in most places now, but I haven't seen any of the other Shiner beers that I had while in Dallas a few years ago.  

Here's two more favorites from the Unibroue brewery in Quebec:

Beer Facts

 It was the accepted practice in Babylon 4,000 years ago that for a month after the wedding, the bride's father would supply his son-in-law with all the mead he could drink. Mead is a honey beer, and because their calendar was lunar based, this period was called the "honey month" or what we know today as the "honeymoon".  
 Before thermometers were invented, brewers would dip a thumb or finger into the mix to find the right temperature for adding yeast. Too cold, and the yeast wouldn't grow. Too hot, and the yeast would die. This thumb in the beer is where we get the phrase "rule of thumb".  
 In English pubs, ale is ordered by pints and quarts so in old England, when customers got unruly, the bartender would yell at them to mind their own pints and quarts and settle down. It's where we get the phrase "mind your P's and Q's".  
 Beer was the reason the Pilgrims landed at Plymouth Rock. It's clear from the Mayflower's log that the crew didn't want to waste beer looking for a better site. The log goes on to state that the passengers "were hassled ashore and made to drink water that the seamen might have the more beer".  
 After consuming a bucket or two of vibrant brew they called aul, or ale, the Vikings would head fearlessly into battle often without armor or even shirts. In fact, the term "berserk" means "bare shirt" in Norse, and eventually took on the meaning of their wild battles.  
 In 1740, Admiral Vernon of the British fleet decided to water down the navy's rum. Needless to say, the sailors weren't too pleased and called Admiral Vernon, Old Grog, after the stiff wool grogram coats he wore. The term "grog" soon began to mean the watered down drink itself. When you were drunk on this grog, you were "groggy", a word still in use today.  
 In the middle ages, "nunchion" was the word for liquid lunches. It was a combination of the words "noon scheken", or noon drinking. In those days, a large chunk of bread was called lunch. So if you ate bread with your nunchion, you had what we still today call a luncheon.  
 Many years ago in England, pub frequenters had a whistle baked into the rim or handle of their ceramic cups. When they needed a refill, they used the whistle to get some service. "Wet your whistle", is the phrase inspired by this practice.

My favorite beer is McEwans scotish ale. It will definently lift your kilt!

On the lighter side, I like MacTarnahan's "scottish"style ale. (it's always the unofficial beer of the woodland CA highland games). It is actually made in Portland OR (but it's heart is scottish).

This all reminds me of a joke.


There were several businessmen from all over the world that were meeting at an international business conference in Los Angelas.  Towards the end of the first day, all of the gentlemen met in the hotel bar for some drinks and food.

The American and canadian businessman both ordered a budwieser and sat down. The Englishman and Russian both ordered a coors lite. The Romanian and Hungarian both ordered Miller Genuine draft.

When the Irishman showed up, he glanced at his collegues and ordered an Ice tea.

Puzzled as to why the Irishman ordered an Ice tea, the genlemen said "why did you order an Ice tea?"

The Irishman replied, "If no one else is drinking beer, than neither am I"


Cheers

Baltika if I want to get a little rowdy.

Baltika is very good.

I started drinking it on the long train ride between Moscow and Volgograd. It made the trip more pleasant, although I had to pee more often, and the Russians shut down the toilets whenever the train nears a town (Why? Because the waste products just drop on the tracks beneath moving Russian trains, and in cities that ain't nice.).

Anyway, Baltika became a habit after that.

I like Ochakovo, too, and Tolstyak.

My wife and I attended the Moscow Beer Festival in the summer of 2001. That was a lot of fun. There were a lot of good bands there.

The Russians brew some very fine beers.

My favorite drink in Russia, though (besides Pertsovka), was Otvortka, the very large, pre-mixed Russian Screwdriver in a can.

Yum!

I used to drink one of those almost every night in the summer while strolling through Red Square with my wife.

Title: Re:What is your favorite beer?
Post by: David on January 21, 2004, 12:34:56 AM
Interesting, I'll have to try an Otvortka if I ever get a chance.

Samichlaus I'm aware of by reputation.  Being that SC, NC, and GA all obey the 6% law I can't have many good beers down here, but that one is on my list for my next excursion northward.

Ever had Sierra Nevada Bigfoot or Victory Hopdevil?  Those will sit you down as well, but not as much as Arrogant Bastard ale, from what I hear.

EKU 28 is a blond Bock with a fiery level of alcohol (the "28" is the original specific gravity in degrees Plato), although I can't remember the exact percentage. I think it is up there at or near the level of wine. It's great stuff, with a good flavor, as well as a tremendous warming effect.

Rauchbier is German beer brewed by placing hot stones in the wort. Rauch means smoke, and Rauchbier has a smokey flavor.

Actually, I don't really like it that much. It kind of reminded me of Campbell's Bean and Bacon soup - good as a soup, bad as beer.
Title: Re:What is your favorite beer?
Post by: David on January 22, 2004, 01:09:14 PM
I'll have to keep an eye out for EK 28 it sounds interesting.  The highest alcohol percentage I've had in beer is 17.5% with Samuel Adams Triple Bock.  

I've had a smoke beer before(don't remember which, I have the bottle at home though) and I agree with your assessment.

This from the Domostroi, a 16th century book concerning life and household management in (Orthodox) Russia:

You should always visit God's churches faithfully, bringing an offering, a candle, communion bread, incense and frankincense, commemorative beer, frumenty, and alms. ... When a person is sick in the house, let the homeowner invite seven or more priests and as many deacons as he can find.  They will pray over commemorative beer for health and over frumenty to bring peace.  (pp. 74f)

Hey Slave,

Just had a good root around Sainsbury's and brought home some Bitter and Twisted, Adnam's Broadside and Fuller's 1845.

There was lots of Badger Ale's as well. When I was at bible college in the New Forest we used to hang out in a real ale pub just a walk away that served Badger's.

I even noticed an export US lager beer called Samuel Adam's Boston Ale, but I didn't buy any this time.

Not a big beer person but it would have to be foreign. I would say:

2 - Velkopopovi Kozel (Czech, far-out goat logo is part of the appeal)

3 - Gambrinus (Czech)

I don't like skunky, smelly, bitter beers. Thus, one of the best known beers in the Czech Republic, Pilsner Urquel, falls out.

Patron is good...I'm trying to think of the name of the very good tequila that my Greek friend served me a few weeks ago.  It was flavored with caramel and some Mexican flower.  The name was similar to Agave(the cactus that tequila is made from).

Having recently returned from Prague I have to say that the [i'real[/i] Czech Pilsner Urquell (i.e. draft) and the original Budweiser (Budvar) are my new favorites.

Budvar is definitely good.  And to think that the American pisswater company tried to sue them for the name in a London court.

Anyway, my priest just called and asked me to pick up one of those mini keg things (1 gal 41 oz).  I picked up one from BevMo of EKU Pils (not the >10% stuff) for $9.99.  What a deal.  Too bad the sale won't last forever.

I still like Yuengling -Lager and Black & Tan... but since developing gout (yuck), I favor ANY beer (and miss them all).

No offence to whoever selected that, but Budweiser is by far the worst beverage I've ever had the chance to consume.  Totally unacceptable.  :)

Piss tastes better in a bottle as opposed to a can?  Nope, still piss.

Tough question.  Goose Island Brewery's Honkers Ale is what I most frequently have on a regular basis.   http://www.gooseisland.com  

I also enjoy a variety of beers and ales (Spaten Oktoberfest, English pub ales such as Fullers), to name but a few,  and Guinness of course.

Cold weather I prefer Mac Tarnahan's Scottish Style Ale.

Warm weather I like Celis White or Tecate.

Also Harp's & Guiness.

Yeah, what gives with some of the  taste in beer I see here?

Any mention of :
Budweiser(in all forms with the exception of Budvar), Miller, Coors or Michelob should be stricken from the forum by the moderator.    ;)

Sam Adams Boston Lager is my go-to at restaurants when their beer lists aren't very good.

My favorite lately has been Franziskaner Hefeweizen.

It really depends on the mood I'm in, but when I'm in the mood for a big boy beer I like this, though I am not particularily fond of the vulgarity in the name, I've certainly shocked people when I've ordered this at a restaurant:
Quote

Expect lovely, warm smells of single malt scotch, oaky bourbon barrels, smoke, sweet caramel and roasted malts, a bit of earthy spice, and a scintilla of dark fruit. It’s a kick-back sipper made to excite the palate.
ABV: 10.2%
IBUs: 50

Unfortunately, I can no longer tolerate gluten. But after a few years of sampling, I have finally found a really nice gluten-free beer.

Don't apologize. I miss Budweiser. As far as your average run-of-the-mill beers go, I love(d) Bud.

Bottled Guinness can never compare to draft, but finding a place that pours it right has been an odyssey 'round these here parts.
