Favorite Beer

Not sure how far this stuff reaches outside Oregon, but Widmer Hefeweizen is my absolute favorite. If anyone runs across it, give this stuff a shot, wheat beer is for the gods. :tu

I have a hard time with Samuel Adams beer, the winter seasonal is great and so is the boston lager, but on the other hand the cherry wheat has so much cherry flavor to it that I can't figure out how it can be labeled as beer. Am I alone on this? :mn

Well, since I'm 20, I don't actually have one... but WERE I to be!...

Domestic: Sam Adams (Boston Lager, Cherry Wheat, Scotch Ale) and Dogfish Head

Imports: I love Guinness... plain and simple. Sapporo is also nice, but I'll usually reach for a Peroni.

I have a few:
Murphy's Irish Red, Kilkeny's, Palm, De Koninck, Jupiler, Hertog Jan & Grolsch. I recently had a Japanese beer, Iki beer, and that was pretty nice too.

Since ale, stouts and beers have been brewed with what was available and in season (chocolate, coffee, etc...). I think the cherry wheat, although somewaht unique, follows this tradition. So, I think of it as a beer and I like it. I find it refreshing and tasty on a hot summer day.

I have turned on family and friends to this beer and about half do not like it because like you, they don't like cherries in their beer. It is, in their mind, not traditional beer.

I do understand. I tried SA White Ale a couple of years ago and it was too fruity for me. I do love trying them all, though.

So much beer, so little time.

Alright so I finally got a chance to try the Honey Porter and Irish Red out of the variety pack that I tried. I have to say the Honey Porter really let me down, I was expecting a much better taste. The initial taste when it enters your mouth is not bad, but as soon as you swallow it all goes down hill!

The Irish red was not to bad, not my favorite, but it is up there in taste.

My favorite has been the Black Lager. I don't know what it is about this stuff, but I have really enjoyed it.

What is everyones feelings about Home Brewing?

I am getting a bigger place here soon, so I will actually have a place to do my brewing, so any suggestions for the best home brews are also appreciated!

Too many to pick just one... I am a fan of Heineken, Yuengling, Guinness, and Sam Smith's Nut Brown Ale to name a few.

For an absolute favorite, I can't come to a serious conclusion... it's just too hard. :D

If I had to pick just one brewer it would be Sam Adams.

Favorite Summer brew is definitely Magic Hat's Hocus Pocus

Drinking all night in the bar Heineken Light or Guinness

I'm not the biggest beer connoisseur (althought I suppose turning 21 will change that :bn), but I like to think I have a decent taste for beer.

My hands down favorite is Sam Adams White Ale--it's the Spring version of their seasonal brew. It's a hearty and full-flavored beer, but it's also a light and fruity ale...simply delicious.

A close second for me is Magic Hat #9, their version of a Pale Ale. It's similar to the White Ale, with prominent peach flavors.

Also a note-worthy beer is the Sam Adams Pale Ale. It seems pretty clear what kind of beers that I'm partial to (maybe it's the warm weather?) But hey, they're delicioso!
