For fans of IPAs I had a STONE IPA last night and it was probably the best I'd ever had. Incredibly hoppy. Even better than the Dogfish which I really enjoy. Might be my favorite American beer. I'll frequently buy a bottle of Chimay for a night of relaxed drinking. As far as other more massed-produced stuff is concerned I really enjoy Weihenstephaner.
I love Sam Adams as well, and my favorite of their beers is the Old Fezziwig Ale. Unfortunately I can only find it 2 months out of the year and have to buy 10 beers I don't want to get 2 of them because they only come in a variety pack. It makes me physically angry what I have to do to drink that beer that I so enjoy.

I prefer the pale ale over the IPA but I am glad that Stone got mentioned (and several times at that).
Tall Tale Pale Ale, which is from here in Cambridge, is my favorite local (couldn't even find a picture of a bottle of it on Google Images) (lol beer hipster). Yuengling and Corona are my favorite big brands.
RIght now Im bbq'ing in 90 degree weather and a Pacifico with lime is my go to.
Yesterday I did a brewery tour of Ft Collins CO. Not a huge fan of the New Belgium Brewing CO beers, they are all a bit overdone.
HUGE fan of Odell Brews. My current favorite is Odell Nitro Cutthroat Porter. Delicious, but not a beer for a hot afternoon bbq...
My previous favorite was Maui Brewing Co, CoConut Porter.

I grew up in ft fun, and most will agree that odells is the best for sure. so underrated and a shame I can't get it out of state. best beer I ever had was every Christmas the odells would drop off a case of something special in exchange for my moms Christmas cookies. these were beers made in tiny batches for employees families and friends, back when there were only a few people working there (90's). we always got the best of that deal. h.c berger brewing was also amazing, but I think they are no longer around. sales took a dove when I moved to California, apparently.
In terms of overall favorite its a real toss up between the last 2. In early spring when the summer first comes out Im so pumped and in early fall when the first post road comes up it get the same feelings. In the end it is probably the post road.
