I like Belgium beers like Palm, De Konick and Orval most.
How about you ?
Celis is still available. A brewery in Michigan bought the rights to all Celis' properties, and you can find them all over the Midwest. I know that because I make sure to pick up some Celis White when I'm visiting family in Illinois.
I tend to prefer India Pale Ales. It's difficult to go wrong with Stone IPA and Ruination. They seem to have the perfect balance between hoppy/bitter flavor and smoothness. Not to mention the aroma is to die for. Other greats include Victory Hop Devil, Sierra Nevada Torpedo, New Holland Mad Hatter, and many more.
I moved from Milwaukee area 3 years ago to Erie,PA and I miss Spotted Cow! No one carries it in Erie area.
Brooklyn Sorachi Ace, a special belgian style ale. It is champagne like, tart, with enough malt to be smooth and drinkable. I split a bottle with my buddy last week at room temperature, and it was superb.
I favor Samuel Smith's Oatmeal Stout and Nutbrown Ale, Sled Dog Tripel Bock, and Paulaner Bock for darker beers myself. And I can't forget Storm King Imperial Stout or Old Rasputin Imperial Stout.
For lighter and hoppier beers, 90 minute IPA by Dogfish Head, Harpoon IPA, Stone IPA of all kinds, but particularly the standard due to its perfect balance. Hop Devil is delicious, and Blue Point RastafaRye is my favorite. it is possibly one of the most perfect beers out there.
Also worth a try are Pork Slap pale ale, Blue Point Toasted Lager, and Rogue's Dead Guy and Double Dead Guy ale. I like to change it up, usually I get 2-3 kinds of beer at a time.
Currently, I have Magic Hat Circus Boy Hefewiezen in my fridge. Very sessionable, just enough character to assert itself.
