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.

Anything red or darker. Can't stand most yellow beers.

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.

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"

Bass in the winter and Corona in the summer.
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.

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.

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)

What is frumenty, I'm not familiar with that term.

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.
