    Anything by Bell's Brewing out of Comstock, MI. Everything they brew is excellent.

    I wouldn't know where to begin....
    Locally there's Newport Storm. by the Coastal Extreme Brewing Company...

    I also enjoy just about anything by Magic Hat out of South Burlington VT and Shipyard from Portland Maine...

    Of course Seattle and the Pacific Northwest definetely had the monopoly over great craft beer....
    My favorites (and I don't know which are still around) were Hales Ales out of Kirklane WA, Grant's Ale's by the Yakima Brewing Company in Yakima WA and Thomas Kemper in Poulsbo WA....Red Hook in Seattle used to be really good before they expanded a'la Starbucks.

    I've never been a big beer drinker, but local Boulevard Brewery's Smokestack Series bottle conditioned ale is changing that. You can see them here:

    I also like Le Fin Du Monde, from Canada.

    We're getting Sam Adams for $2.88 a 6 pack this week. Not bad for that price.
    I'm a Lagunitas Man, for the most part:

    Oops. After some web searching, it seems as though it is gone.

    Even though the NW beers are great, gotta second Davydd on Bells.I could really use a Two Hearted Ale right now. I also like all the Trappist beers from Belgium. And most of the Abbey beers from Belgium.

    Sierra Nevada Pale Ale
    Bass Ale

    We were just up near Lagunitas, but went to Dempsey's instead and had the Christmas Barleywine.

    That reads like a blast from the past. You weren't old enough to drink those beers in their prime marketing years of the 60s.

    you EastCoasters are a funny bunch. I count 60 22 oz bomber styles alone at my local grocery store, and 100's of 6packs most from West of the Mississippi and good. Falstaff

    "Blast" is right. With a list like that I suspect DD's underwear brand isn't Hanes or Jockey, but Odor-Eaters.
    Someone gave my dad a 12-pack of Hamm's for Christmas back in 1981. Even though I was underage at the time he didn't object when I took it back to college with me...I didn't realize until later that he got the better of that deal.

    It pleases me that somebody remembers Thomas Kemper. Will Kemper was my mentor back in the day.

    Stroh's is one of Pabst's stable of brands. The Pabst website has a page for every beer they market (its all contract brewed now) and a list of distributors arranged by state for each brand. The site is at:

    My favorite beer is Abita Amber, a Munich-style lager brewed in Abita Springs, LA.

    Production of Falstaff ceased in 2005. Low sales.

    On a daily basis, it will be Busch.. Cheap and somewhat clean. During the summer I enjoy Pabst, thats if it's good and chilled on a hot day. Times I hit the bars I enjoy a good bottle of Strohs. Then when there's an extra jingle in the pocket, Bass or Bells works for me...

    It's interesting.

    Even though Bud and Bud Light are the big sellers that they are, nobody here fesses up.

    Myself, I cannot choke down any of the mainstream brews (Coors, Miller, Miller Lite, Bud, Bud Light, etc.) ... yet, lately, I have become a big fan of GUINNESS (on tap, especially,) OLD SPECKLED HEN, BODDINGTONS, BERKSHIRE BREWING COMPANY'S DOUBLE BAG, and, if in Washington, MAC & JACK'S (only available on tap).

    Now, if there are any Bud drinkers out there ...

    The only mass produced commercial beer I'll drink is Corona- and that's only when I'm in Miami- I'm not sure of the reasoning behind that....but it just seems to taste good whenever I'm down there...

    It's strictly craft brews for me otherwise, but I will "settle" for a Sam Adams if that's the only choice besides the disgusting stuff

    I am the same way ... If I am in western New York, I can't not order a Genny Cream ... It used to be that I'd order a Stroh's if in Ohio, but that brand has been completely ruined over the decades and I've broken that habit.
