The best beer I ever had in my life was whatever they had in the "honor fridge" at the Rolling Hills Golf Course in New Bedford, PA. (This was more than 40 years ago and was under prior ownership). I was 16 then; no beer since has ever tasted better!

Presently, five of the six-pack of Coors Light I bought to accompany nachos & cheese for the Dallas-New England game are still in the fridge.

I love Guinness. Problem is there is no way to have it at home that approaches the texture of a well poured one at a busy pub.

To my knowledge you can't get it in "pony" sized kegs?

Gregg, even a pub Guinness can vary greatly. You are right about it better be a busy pub that goes through Guinness fast. The Local Irish pub in Minneapolis on Nicollet Mall will pour an excellent Guinness but the Newsroom right across the street from the Local will more often be stale and flat.

The Guinness cans with the widget in them are not too far off. You have to pour it in a glass to drink it properly. Drinking straight out of the can is not an option (for me). The Guinness bottled variety doesn't do anything for me. I won't buy the bottles.

You need to go to a little place called "Aspin" where the beer flows like wine!

We have some great breweries in Michigan who brew a variety of good beer. I like flavorful beer, not watered down urine looking beer that the big brewers brew.
Bells
Founders
New Holland
Dark Horse
Michigan Brewing

I can endorse Schell's Beer in New Ulm, Minnesota. It is the second oldest brewery to Yuengling but I bet the oldest brewery still in its original brewhouse. When I first came to Minnesota in 1970 Schell's was just a local brewery that made local swill in my opinion. They have since upgraded significantly to that of a craft brewer. If you read labels closely on some so called craft beers around the country you might find if it says Minnesota that Schell's contract brewed it. Good beer. I like their Pale Ale and Pilsner.

Billy Beer...just kidding, HARP, hands down, then Fosters.
I like Anchor Steam but it gives me gas that could gag a maggot.

When i'm cooking up some BBQ in the summer i just love an ice cold 16oz. PBR.
Anchor Steam too.....but I can buy a 12 pack of PBR's for the price of one 6 of Anchor Steam.

Harpoon IPA is a really good ale I think as well.

Recently, I've been trying to branch out and drink new (to me at least) beer and learn more about beer in general. I've pledged to buy a new beer each time I pick up a six pack.

This week, I picked up six packs of both Anchor Steam and R.J. Rocker's Brown Ale. R.J. Rockers is out of Spartanburg, SC.

The Brown Ale tasted off to me. It wasn't flat exactly just off. I wasn't impressed.

I'm a big fan of Anchor Steam now. Very good!

Stores are getting more sophisticated with beers and are starting to stock craft brews from around the country. However, I am very suspect when the sit on the shelf warm and have a layer of dust on them. Those I avoid

It depends on where I am--so many good beers are regional. While I'd love to be able to get Fat Tire at home, if it reached that level of distribution, it probably wouldn't be as good. Also depends on what and where I'm eating. If it's the double cheeseburger at Workingman's Friend, it's got to be the Champagne of Beers. There's also a local gastropub that makes its own excellent Belgian beers--wonderful to wash moules and frites down with, but not exactly roadfood. But, if I could somehow get all my favorite beers here, without affecting quality or anything, I'd pick up sixers of:
Fat Tire
Rogue Ales Dead Guy
Dixie Beer (it's back!!)
Shiner Bock
Upland Brewery Dragonfly IPA (excellent Indiana-based brewery, lots of seasonals etc).

Is it 5:00 yet??

Once asked a beer maker for his slant on the BEST beer in the world.
His answer: Samuel Smith from England. Try their Amber. It's expensive...but heaven. For my money the British make the BEST beer. French Kronnenburg is a close second. German beer over-rated. No major American bear is worth drinking. Question :If Coors is water...what is Coors lite???

There are many Saranac beers I like, some Sam Adams, Pete's Wicked, Hennepin from Ommegang Brewery, Brooklyn Pale Ale, Brooklyn Lager, Unearthly (Imperial India Pale Ale) from Southern Tier Brewing (and others from same Brewery), Thumbsucker from Magic Hat, several beers from RUssian River, Stone, and Rogues Ales Breweries.
I'm sill a sucker for Sierra Nevada Pale Ale, I enjoy some of the beers from Old Dominion, and I often get Yuengling when the tap is filled with mostly Bud and Miller Prducts. (I was drinking Yuengling before Yuengling was known outside of PA - and it was cheap then).

And that's just some of the American beers I like.
When at an Irish pub, I often get Harp/Guiness "Half and Half"

Canada had some awesome crafted beers, whose names (like so many American small breweries) escape me, but I do especially remember Alley Cat Brews and Lighthouse Brewery beers standing out.

So many good breweries in Gemrnay, here are some favs:
Spaten-Franziskaner-Brau
Weihenstephan
Paulaner

the list goes on.

PS If anyone wants to go with me to DC's Brickskellar (1000's of beer from around the world) I'll be glad to meet you.

The standard is Miller Lite.
Feeling Retro is PBR.
Oh wow, look what they have is Dixie Beer.
Bartender, what do you have on tap is something Belgian.

I don't drink beer frequently, but when I do, I want it to be a truly good beer, therefore my favorites, as of right now, are:

Guiness Extra Stout
All Sam Adams
Shiner Bock
Dos Equis
All beers from Four Peaks Brewery in Tempe, AZ

I'm certain that as I try more I will find others that I like as much or better than these, but as I say, I don't drink it frequently, so my taste isn't compromised (I think).

Can't we do both. I drink either Natural Light or Bud Light and I'm serious.

OK, let's get serious with our brews. Today I headed down to Excelsior Vintage liquor store in Excelsior, Minnesota. They specialize in wines but do carry a couple of coolers of craft beers. Last week they got in Bell's Hopslam Ale a seasonal brew that comes out in January. I had been waiting for this and finally picked up my first six pack. We're talking about a 10% alcohol by volume biting, bitter, tongue bruiser of an ale. I had reservations that such an ale would be too much but it is goooood! Take a look at the art work. Bell's is brewed in Comstock, MI near Kalamazoo.
