Yes, yes I know - babies aren't allowed beer. However, I think the stuff is wonderful (with some exceptions...I'm looking at you, Carling!). Anyway, are there any other ADISC beer lovers, and if so, what are your favourite types of beer and individual brew(s)?

I'll post my Top 3, but it's subject to change...

Brooklyn Lager (Brooklyn Brewery) - A lovely, crisp, slightly sour lager brewed to and made through pre-prohibition recipe and methods. Delicious!

Koko Brown (Kona Brewing Co.) - Dark ale with coconut. As good as it sounds. Made in Hawaii (alleged birthplace of McLovin!).

Birra Moretti (Birra Moretti) - Really nice, flavoursome, refreshing Italian lager. Goes perfectly with Seafood, as well.

So, fellow ADISCers, how about yourselves? :)

1. Magic Hat Number 9 - It's some kind of paleish, brownish, fruitish beer. It's delicious

2. Sierra Nevada Summerfest - The perfect lager. Crisp, clean, light enough, but not so light that it's like water. Moreover, it has a lovely hop finish.

3. Petrus Aged Pale - Sour pale ale. If you haven't had a sour beer before, brace yourself. It's different, but I think it's refreshing and it awakens the tastebuds.

I love Sierra Nevada beers, though some of them are hard to get in England. I've only found Summerfest in one shop in Nottingham, but it is delicious. The pale ale and Kellerweis are both excellent beers and fairly accessible in these parts. Talking of US ale brewers, I like Anchor beers a lot (and their lager is also really good).

If you live in England, you needn't concern yourself with American lagers; you should be drinking the German and Czech stuff. Now when it comes to beer getting weird, I think that's where we shine, but elegant simplicity is not really our forte.

Oh I know, I just picked up a bottle of Anchor lager recently because the specialist beer store near me had some, and I was surprised by how nice it was. The Czechs and the Belgians (Jupiler, Maes and Palm...Stella is overrated!) know how to make the best lagers, especially pilsners.

I like super hoppy IPA's. Lagunitas is probably my favorite all around, easily acquired beer at the moment.

My mouth is watering just from typing that out :D

My favorite beer is Stone Arrogant Bastard. I know, I'm a horrible person. Brooklyn Lager and Sierra Nevada Pale Ale are also among my favorites.

One of the benefits of being an adult baby is that you can drink whatever you want.

What it's been for the past 40 years. Budweiser. In fact it's time for one.

I like the Moretti and Peroni's as well. My favorite domestic mass produced beer is the basic Yuengling lager. Once you get into more limited edition stuff it gets harder to decide.
I've gotten into sour beers of late. This started with the New Belgium Brewery Lips of Faith La Folie which is very hard to come by in this area of the country. I've tried others, but they're even harder to find.

When I was visiting Japan, we got in late and were in the hotel coffee shop trying to get something to eat before we went to sleep. The menu read:

Beer -- Imported
Budweiser (yes the american one not the Czech Budweiser Budvar).

I drank the "domestic" stuff instead.


I remember when people made a big thing about Coors around here when they didn't sell it out east. I was cheap and never tried it preferring Miller High Life or Old Style (hey I was a poor college student). After I graduated I moved to Denver and actually tasted the swill. Coors does produce some beer that actually is worth drinking. They had one called Herman Joseph's 1868 which wasn't bad and you could get it at any bar in town so I drank a lot of it. The George Killian's Irish Red wasn't too bad for mass market stuff either.


I have a friend who drives me crazy. He drinks nothing but Bud Light and he gets it chilled down to 22 degrees. Jeeze what's the point.

Devil's Backbone has some great lagers and ales, and have won all sorts of awards. I also enjoy Bass Ale, Blue Moon and even Sam Adams.

Wow. Hard to say. Depends on season, situation, and mood. Goose Island used to make a fabulous IPA. Not quite as good since they sold out to INBEV and started brewing elsewhere. Lately I've been enjoying Founder's porter. Anything by New Glarus or Two Brothers is likely to make me smile.

Anything from Germany. I remember Veltins being a brand that stood out as being particularly good during my visit. =)

I enjoy trying different craft brewed beers. My all time favorite is Old Speckled Hen brand brewed by Morland's in England. It comes in a clear bottle and has a pleasant bitter taste.

Yeah, I love Speckled Hen. Have you tried Morland's Tanner's Jack, which is another IPA, and I think better than the standard Greene King IPA the parent company makes (which is still quite nice!).

I've heard of Speckled Hen, never sampled. I like variety, but if it came down to my last pint on the planet, it would be an insanely hopped IPA.

It somewhat depends on season and mood. I drink Redhook or Hoegarden Wit in the summer but not the winter. On the other hand Ninkasi Total Domination and Full Sail Amber are year round favorites. I'm also partial to Deschutes Chainbreaker partly for the beer, and partly because it's named after a mountain bike race.

I have not tried it yet. I am going to buy it on my next liquor store run. Thanks for the tip.
