As I'm originally from Milwaukee, the land of Beer, and now in Colorado, home of the craft brewery, I indulge.

Right now I'm enjoying a Sierra Nevada "Bigfoot Ale" it's a barley wine with 9.6% alcohol content So as the haze begins as I sip on my second one, I began thinking of favorite beers...here's my top three...

ODELL brewery: 90 Schilling. An amber beer made in Colorado.

Victory brewery: Dirty Wolf IPA. Usually don't like IPAs, but got sold when I stopped in a small market store and a very attractive salesperson sold me on a 5 pack. Didn't realize there's east coast and west coast IPAs. This IPA has good flavor and quite a kick.

Sprecher brewery. Black Bavarian. Small brewery in Milwaukee. Great beer! But they don't sell much outside of Wisconsin, so don't get it much. Funny story...Randy Sprecher, the owner, likes to experiment. A few years back he made a few small batches of beer based on African beer recipes. One was sorghum based. The other was banana flavored. They were both the most horrible concoctions I ever tasted....

Honorable mention:

Firestone Walker brewery. Velvet Merlin Stout. I have had the pleasure of drinking Guinness Stout in Ireland's oldest bar. Hands down best beer I every had...but since it was a rarity, I don't list it. But recently I was at resturaunt that had Velvet Merlin on tap. It's an oatmeal stout that rivals Irish Guinness.

Any favorites? And recommendations?

I don't drink anymore, but when I used to, I liked Budweiser and St. Pauli Girl.

One thing I noticed was that Molsen beer purchased in the USA tasted like skunk. Whereas in Canada, it tasted much better, and caused a stronger buzz.

There are probably some on this planet I like as much or more (for instance I also quite like many Belgian Trappist beers), but below are listed my special goto beers when they are available to me. Tasty, good memories, etc. Both brewing companies have nice brew pubs to boot:

1. Maui Brewing Co. Coconut Porter:

The Maui Brewing Co. Imperial Coconut Porter is even nicer, but much harder to find.

2. Brasserie Dieu du Ciel! Aphrodisiaque AKA Aphrodite:

I only drink beer on hot summer days after working in the yard or working up a sweat. All I need is a nice cold one and on rare occasions, two. For me that's Corona Light with the lime. Sorry to disappoint. Smile

My neighbor rang my doorbell at 2:30 a.m. this morning, can you believe that, 2:30 a.m.!? Lucky for him I was still up playing my drums.

It depends on the time of year and if I've been working. When it's hot out here in Arizona, and especially after work, I lean toward lighter, Pilsner style brews. Golden Pheasant, Spaten, Warsteiner, Heineken, etc.

There's a local brewery here in Tucson called Barrio Brewing Company that makes one called Barrio Blonde that I like.

Never Budweiser. And really, none of the major American brewery beers. Although, Michelob Amber Bock isn't half bad.

Nothing with fruit in it.

Sometimes- when it's colder- I lean toward porters and stouts. Left Hand Milk Stout and Left Hand Nitro Milk Stout are both excellent. Sam Adams Cream Stout is a family favorite.

It only comes out seasonally, but one of my all time favorites is Samuel Smith's Winter Welcome Ale.

I don't like to get drunk like when I was younger, but I've learned to appreciate a good brew.

Grolsch (but only in the ceramic top bottles)
Beck's Sapphire (sometime hard to find around here, though)
Leinenkugels Sunset Wheat (makes great beer batter)
Heineken Dark (long time fav)
Old Rasputin (demonic possession in a bottle)

Guinness is what I normally drink. So I highly recommend the two beers I mentioned above to you. I mean, if we have a mutual liking of Guinness in common then maybe you'll like those other two as well. Especially the MBC Coconut Porter. Everyone I've introduced it to seems to love it. I was lucky enough to tour the MBC brewery in Maui a few months back. Good times.

I love Dos Equis.

In college, Rolling Rock was THE beer.

When I lived in Germany, my favorite was Hannen Alt.

When I was stationed in the Sinai, we used to drink Heineken in cans at the Ditch club (never had seen that before). We called them Green Grenades.

The best beer I ever had was in the summer of 1974. I had been making out with Ann Young at a party for an hour. When we came up for air, I was so parched I grabbed a warm Budweiser. It was heaven in a bottle. (Memory might be clouded by the make out session with Ann Young.)

I second Balducci's suggestion od Aphrodisiaque. Dieu du Ciel makes some excellent beer.

I've toured that brewery! I'm from upstate NY, born in Rome. My grandad liked Utica Club and Matt's.

I was spoiled by being able to drink Guinness in Ireland. It ruined it for me back in the states. It's just nit the same. Big I can find a bar who knows how to pour it. I'll order a black & tan (Guinness and Harps Ale)

I am sponsored by Sessions ... The bottle caps have Rock, Paper, Scissors on them so they are perfect for Roshambo ... The beer is quite good too, being from the Pacific Northwest with a climate similar to Germany.
