I don't really care for Sam Adams Boston Ale...their Cream Stout is okay.  The best thing they make IMHO is their Triple Bock.

Now how could you not like haggis!!! Although my (scottish) wife will only eat haggis if it's covered in tomato ketchup, so I had to go out and find a shop to buy some.

I'm quite enjoying my bottle of Bitter and Twisted

Hey Katherine - I've had Moose Drool over here in Western Washington state -- I don't like it much.

My wife always makes fun of me, but I love Coor's Light.  It's cheap, tastes great, and few calories.  What more do you want in a beer??

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

1 - Perroni (Italian)

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.

Beer, when beer must be drunk, should be drunk only from the great bottles of Ommengang.   http://www.ommegang.com/ourbeers.php  
I'm more a HarveyWallbanger, White Russian, Gin & Tonic (and sev other drinks by titles that should never be mentioned on an Ortho forum... makes it hard to order drinks when out on the town with you grandparents) type myself.

Now where were we? Oh yeah - the important thing was I had an onion on my belt, which was the style at the time. They didn’t have white onions because of the war. The only thing you could get was those big yellow ones...

BTW, the only place I've been every able to find Ommegang besides Cooperstown, NY is the Brickskeller here in DC.  If anyone's ever in the area, I'll consider springing for a pint.

Pete's Wicked Ale (although I couldn't find Wicked Winter Brew this past holiday season - my annual Christmas present to myself - so I am wondering if the company went out of business)

Also any beer brewed in Germany to be sold on site and not shipped; something about the natural ingredients; no additives and traditional brewing techniques - especially the Hofbrau Haus in Munich

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).

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.

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.
