    I am an avid beer drinker. Right now I can not say what my favorite beer is, but I love going to the liquor store and seeing 100+ different types all lined up for my picking.

    So, what is your favorite beer? Macrobrew and Microbrew.

    I've never drinking more than 4 sips of beer at a time. Most 15
    year olds have at least drinkin one beer, but to tell you the truth,
    I really have no interest in alcohol.

    I prefer a smooth hearty beer. coors original is a good product. also michelob's AmberBock is excellent and i just happening to be sampling some right now.

    Mmmm Beer

    Stouts: Guiness (the KING of beers) and Beemish
    Ales: Hmmm Anchor Steam probably, or Newcastle
    Lager: Harp, Pacifico, Red Stripe
    ****ty American: Coorslight!

    I just started to homebrew, and I must say beer tastes better when you've made it yourself!

    Hmmm, I stay away from corona, its a little pricey and also not worth it unless you've got a lime handy.

    In terms of best price to taste ratio, I have to go with Busch Light, by far. It's relatively cheap (compared to bud), but tastes pretty good, and doesn't fill you up. That's my most bought beer here at college.

    If you're going for the cheapest halfway decent beer, i'd stick with Keystone light, Coor's cheaper offering. For a while we could get them for 8.99 for a 30 pack, and they taste decent.

    If you're looking for a little better taste than busch and are willing to shell out about 3 bucks more, go for Miller light or miller genuine draft. Miller light is one of the smoothest domestic beers around, I can drink 18 in a night, and I'm by no means a big guy.

    Beers to avoid at all cost: Milwaukee's Best (or "Beast"), Icehouse, Highlife Light, Natural Light or Ice (Natty), and anything else that seems suspisciously cheap.

    For when you're going with a nice, high quality beer, and got some money, Bud Light's always a winner, Sam Adams is good, Heineken special Dark is a great beer for poker night, and from austria, i think, Warstiener is a delicious, albeit heavy, lager that goes well alone, with food or whenever you feel like a nice cold one.

    Hope this helped.
    Cheers

    Anchor Steam. Its a local san francisco brew. By far the best beer I've had.

    Guiness of course is always nice, especially in a black and tan.

    As Medea said, cider is often good too. I'll take a Strong Bow cider any time.

    I like Lucky Lager because there are little puzzles under the caps.

    as far as Macrobrews, probably heineken, though my taste for it has waned. Carona in the summer is good. Sammy Adams.

    Anything by Bud is OK if its in a glass. Bud form a can or bottle is pretty nasty. Strictly drunk only when nothing better is available though.

    Best cheap drunk is Keystone Ice. Super cheap, super strong, and pretty smooth when its really, really cold.

    well, believe it or not 15 year olds: people do not necessarily drink beer for alcohol. i enjoy the TASTE.

    anyway- wait 6 years and you can learn what i mean.

    i'll list a few i like in no order:
    blue moon
    grolsh amber
    pilsner urquel (can't spell it)
    bud light (a good cheap beer)
    sam adams light (great for a medium light)
    guiness (cold)
    newcastle
    bass

    and the best all time pary beer- busch light by far. my campus is wet, but kegs are "not" allowed, so 15-20 30's of busch light makes a great exchange with the sorority ladies.


    ....any many more

    love rolling rock. like local microbreweries (like the kind friends have in their basement) but 9 out of 10 times they screw it up pretty badly, you just want to retch.

    my brother makes some good stuff on his own, but too many times he has over cabonated them. they get everywhere if you open them without paying attention.

    Can't stand the taste. I've hear it said that it's a learned sense of taste.

    I really don't like Beer, but If I have to drink it, I pick Corona or Sam Adams.

    I've really gotten into wines recently (tends to happen when you go to a private university with a bunch of spolied rich kids).

    I also like Smirnoff Ice, Sky Blue, and any type of hard liquor.

    Pilsner Urquell- Czech beer is the best

    The best American beers are from small Wisconsin breweries that pre-date the whole microbrew movement

    Beck's is the best beer in the world (even though it's now owned by interbrew from belgium)!!!:D :D :D

    I drink it since I'm 15 and my grandfather used to work in the glass production for the bottles (look for the little house with the "w" in it on the bottom of the bottle)...

    - drink Beck's and secure jobs in my hometown;)

    i've only tried beer twice; i hated it both times. it's definitely an acquired taste. as is wine, which i much prefer. i've never spent much on it though; i really like those beringer white zinfandels for blush wine and, say, merlots for red. i've heard that chiantis are good too, but the ones i tried were much too bitter for me.

    In Kansas City, MO, there is a brewery called .Boulevard Brewery and my favorite beer is their Bob's 47. It's only available in the early fall.

    Other than that I drink their Unfiltered Wheat or Coor Original when I'm on a budget.

    a canadian perspective...

    Being Canadian and all, I just couldn't pass this up.

    My faves are:

    Domestic (from canada):
    Alexander Keith's India Pale Ale
    Sleeman Honey Brown
    Creemore Springs (this stuff is to die for, I'm serious)

    Foreign:
    Leffe Blond (Belgium)
    Guinness
    Stella Artois (clean and crisp)

    Just to name but a few...

    Did you guys know in Toronto we hold a beer olympics? It's a riot.
