Favorite beer?

Postby sakhalin » Tue Oct 23, 2012 7:58 pm

What is everyone's favorite beer?

Mine is Mac & Jack's Amber Ale, but it is a domestic brew. For "mainstream" stuff, I love Blue Moon.

My "mainstream" choice is Samuel Adams but usually I'll go for what's on tap from local microbreweries.

Not sure if I can get Mac & Jacks out here, I'll have to try it.

I believe Mac & Jack's is only available in Washington, Oregon, Idaho, and certain parts of Northern California. Possibly British Columbia too? It's a great dark beer, and it's the highest rated amber ale on beeradvocate (or ratebeer, I forget).

I keep hearing great things about Sierra Nevada! I need to try that.

"wild black" is one of my favorites if not my favorite. Its 8% alcohol and tastes like a super strong wine/beer, its hard to explain. It goes for about 9 bucks a 6 pack and there are two other flavors by that brand. Theres "wild red" which is a rasberry beer, and "wild blue" which is a blueberry beer. Very good! Very strong!

Favorite beer that's an occasional treat would be Tilburg's Dutch Brown Ale. Domestic lager I go with Miller Lite. I also like a lot of the Dogifsh Head beers.
