Favorite Beer? - Page 13

I can't choose just one - they're all good. It's like asking who is your favorite supermodel? Tough to pick just one.
Interesting comments and choices - especially about some of the 'green-bottled' choices. I know a few home-brewers who will tell ya green bottles are terrible choices for bottling beer because the most destructive of light's wavelengths get through and can make the beer skunky relatively quickly. I've found that to be pretty accurate. Of the Stellas, Yuenlings, Heinekins, etc......I much prefer them draught versus from a green bottle. Even out of a can is an improvement IMHO.
Cleveland, OH is home to a pretty credible micro-brewer called Great Lakes Brewing. Their Elliot Ness brew is a great everyday choice, but their Christmas Ale (available only during the holiday season) is truly outstanding.
Best from a bottle was one of the trappist doubles. Can't remember which. Just remember it was in a class all it's own. Best on tap, Uncle Billy's sampler here in Austin. Pretty much any beer they brew, serve with the chopped beef sandwich. Wheats and Shandies are also nice brews in Texas where it's almost always hot.
Currently having a love affair with Wisconsin beers
New Glarus Fat Squirrel, Leinenkugel red lager or creamy dark for dinners/ single beer for the evening.
Leinenkugel original for everything else: working in the garage, cutting grass, fishing, etc...
Since I live in Mississippi right now and can't get any of this local, once I run out of my mass stock of original I usually supplement with coors light until I can make another summer vacation run back up to WI.
