If you live anywhere near Asheville (I don't . . . yet), try the Catawba Valley King Hooligan Scottish Ale. It's 8.8% ACV and is delicious.
Anyone have Kentucky Bourbon Barrel Ale? If not, try finding it, really good.
The thread is your favorite beer............not your choice of piss
IF the thread was "what is my favorite kind of ?" I would say a big, tall, cold glass of it after we beat Bama.
Any beer made in Colorado. Have yet to have a bad experience with it. Also Natty Greene's beers outta Greensboro are legit. I go with breweries more than single beers.
1. NEW BELGIUM
2. BRISTOL BREW CO
3. NATTY GREENE
Marble IPA, Sierra Nevada pale ale and Torpedo, Shock Top wheat IPA, to start.
Three Floyds is definitely my favorite brewery that we have access to. Gumball Head, Zombie Dust, and Panzer Wolf are great APAs/IPAs. In fact you probably won't get any better unless you can get your hands on some Pliney the Elder from Russian River in CA. I live in Lexington, KY now so we're spoiled with a number of craft brew bars. In KTown, Bearden Beer Market always has great beers on tap and a somewhat decent selection.
Sammy Smith's is also hard to beat. They just came out with a Chocolate Stout, if you're into that sort of thing. Not a session beer, but tasty nonetheless.
Highland Brewery out of NC is pretty good too. Calf Killer, Thomas Creek, and Foothills are also good. Find them on line and you can get them at Bearden Beer Market sometimes.

Hey was just joking around man. Believe me I'd be the last person to turn down cold, yellow and free.
And I'd be chugging with you on Bama.
Pilsner Urquell, Peroni and Leinenkugel's Summer Shandy..
Widmer Brothers Citra Blonde Summer Ale
Long Trail IPA
God needs a Safety on His team. RIP 21

Yuengling is great, oldest brewery in America.

I am not a beer snob at all. I drink anything. Usually, i'll drink bud light lime if i'm at home b/c it's cheap and plentiful ( I think it tastes like Corona with a lime, which I love at the beach. Drinking the bud light lime reminds me of vacation). Other than that for casual drinking, i really really like Guinness and Killian's Irish Red. I also really like Moose Drool.
And, obviously, I'm a big fan of micro brews. so, yea.
I went to visit my sister in Louisville over Thanksgiving and had the Kentucky Bourbon Ale. It was great. I brew my own beer and I'm trying to make my own (redneck) version since I can't find it in Charlotte. I always drank Bud Light, Newcastle, Guinness, Black and Tans, or Fat Tire until I started brewing my own beer and kegging it. When I started my Dad told me I wouldn't be able to drink Bud Light anymore and would gravitate towards IPA's. He was right, I hated them before I started brewing but now I avoid any light beers if I'm not at home.
If I'm buying beer I still buy:
Corona (in the summer or when bbq-ing)
OMB Copper (local brewery getting a decent footprint in NC, Olde Mecklenburg Brewery)
Dos Equis Amber
Anchor Steam and Fat Tire are probably my favorite.
You are so right. Once you develop a taste for IPAs and other more exotic varieties, light beer has little or no taste (and frankly, very little alcohol).
We have similar tastes in cuisine (anything Cincinnati) and beer.
My all-time favorite beer is Creemore. You can only get it in Canada. It's the nectar of the gods -- full flavor, crisp, just the right amount of hops. It's sublime.
