I'm more of a straight liquor person myself, but I rarely drink that when I'm out.

I actually hated Guinness until I went to Ireland. It really tastes infinitely better there, and I have no idea why. Guinness from Ireland will always be my top choice. I try to drink it here but it hurts.

Magic Hat is my next favorite beer of all time. It has a little kick to it...I can't really explain the flavor but it really stands out from other beers. It is gorgeous.

I also love Yuengling. When I'm out and there's no Magic Hat, Yuengling is my next choice.

Followed by Woodchuck.

And if I'm low on cash, I think the best cheap beer out there is PBR.

Oh and for 40s, my top choice is Hurricane.

I don't drink much, but if I'm going to get a beer I'll get a Blue Moon or a Yuengling.

This is my favorite time of year for beers, because the darker, hoppier seasonal ones come out. My favorite beers are IPAs. Victory's Hop Devil is my favorite, but I also reall like Stone IPA. Blue Moon is good now and then, and I like Corona in the summer. I really can't stand Heineken. I always think it tastes skunky. I love Yuengling. I grew up about an hour from their brewery, and my dad and I have done the tour. Yuengling is a great quality for a cheap beer, too--I can get a six pack for less than $5. Theirs is one of the best light beers I've tried, too, and I also enjoy their porter.

Victory's Storm King stoudt is an ass kicker at 9% alcohol, but it's so good, especially in the winter months. It's expensive, but it's totally worth it.

I've been too sick to drink at all this fall, and it's looking like it will probably be another six weeks or so until I'll be able to enjoy that lonely Hop Devil in my fridge

I actually hated beer as well, then I started drinking Blue Moon (On a VERY hot day in the summer) and I started to acquire a taste for it.
Heiniken, I was never a fan of it.

Sapporo is great with sushi. Guinness is better in Ireland.

I really need to get more into Victory, I would probably like it.

For those who don't like beer, it's an acquired taste I think. Especially different types of beer.

the whole "guinness is better in ireland" thing is a strange debate. i haven't been to ireland (yet) so i can't really tell.

the actuall company line on the issue is that it's a mental thing, sort of like a placebo effect, and that the guinness that is shipped to america is 100% exactly the same thing as what is shipped to ireland.

some think it's 'cause the pipes are that much older in ireland that makes the difference.

who knows. i tend to lean towards the mental thing.

or that those in ireland are more adept at the handeling of guinness... even here in the states there's a difference between pints depending on a) where you get it, b) who pours it. who the hell knows

I love the fact that in Germany you could drink a different beer every day for more than 16 years straight.
And then start with the international ones.

I'm not at all impressesd by the American beers like Miller or Budweiser.
The original Chech Budweiser is much better.

Local patriotism makes me enjoy Flensburger Pilsener the most. Colin Powell drinks that beer as well.
I like Heineken and several German beers, generally pils.

Australian beer was okay, but too watery/washy for my taste.
Carlsberg is enjoyable, but I don't like Tuborg at all. That stuff tastes like a beer that was left open for too long.

I'm not a fan of Weizen, not my cup of tea.

Beck's isn't great, either. Generally, those commercial beers are lacking in taste. Exceptions would be Warsteiner or Krombacher.

That's it so far for beer.

I would prefer cider if it was available at bars and discos, but sadly it isn't.

Guinness used to be brewed in a plant in NY state for sale in the US but now we get ours from Ireland. A third of Guinness brewed worldwide comes from Nigeria.

Guinness joke I found:

This story takes place at a beer festival in Ireland, where the various Presidents from different breweries were sitting in a pub for a beer.

The Corona President says to the bartender: "Senor, I'd like the world's best beer -- a Corona". Bartender grabs a dusty bottle from the shelf and hands it to him.

The Budweiser President says: "Bartender, I'll have the King of Beers, a Budweiser."

The Coors President: "I'd like the only beer that's made from pure Rocky Mountain Spring Water, a Coors".

The Guinness President says: "Bartender, I'll have a Coke." The other Presidents then ask him: "Hey, why aren't you drinking a Guinness?" To which, he replies: "Well, since you guys aren't drinking beer, neither will I."
