Thread Name: BS: What's your favourite brew/beer?
Subject: What's your favourite brew/beer?
I've been on the East Coast of the States and now live on the West Coast and have come to really appreciate beer.

Not the watered down brands that are readily advertised on the television...more like imports or the marvelous microbrews that have become very popular.

My first favourite is of course Guinness but I've come to like Smith's (if I remember correctly) Oatmeal Stout from England and Young's Luxury Double Chocolate Stout (also English) isn't bad either...

In the States there are some good brews from Samuel Adams...Siera Nevada...Pete's Wicked Ale (on occasion) and in Syracuse, NY downtown at Empire Brew Pub in the Armory, I've tasted some good microbrews....A few years ago I had the opportunity to brew a batch of Honey Lager that wasn't bad. I've also come to like various hard ciders both apple and pear...Woodchuck and Woodpecker for the apple ciders (one is sweet, and I cannot remember which is which)....Wyders (?) for the pear.

Beer, it isn't just Michelob, Coors, Molson, Bud, etc anymore....

And temperature sure does matter! Ice cold hides the flavour!

So, Mudcatters from all around the globe, what are some of your favourites??
