+1 to all goose island stuff. IPA, 312, Matilda, Pere Jacques, and green line pale ale are all fantastic.

+1 to beer advocate too, awesome site

Like Shiner Bock a lot, this sounds amazing.

When I was bartending at a brewpub people would ask for a sample of something different. I'd give them a taste of the IPA just to see the look on their face.

Then they'd have a raspberry wheat.

But as an all-time long-lost favorite I choose a beer from a now (sadly) defunct brewery that was bought by Sam Adams. I don't think they brew it at all any more. Long Shot Hazel Nut. If anyone knows where or in what season I can get this PM me.

Yuengling (we just call it lager here in P.A) is usually a good default beer as well.

I live in Texas and I kinda view Shiner like I view Shock Top. Above average. Easy to drink 6. Not particularly enjoyable while I'm doing it though. I've only had the bock and blonde though. And I'll admit the bock being much better.

Hard to go wrong with any of Sierra Nevada beers for supermarket brands, especially the pale ale. Dogfishead IPA's are awesome.

This, was surprisingly pleased with it when I was last in Philly, pity I've never seen it exported

Founder's Kentucky Breakfast Stout (Regular Breakfast Stout is amazing as well)
Bell's Two Hearted Ale
Southern Tier Chokolat
Schlafly American IPA (Local brewery)
Founder's Porter

Yeah, IPAs and Stouts for me.


Favorite swill would be Milwaukee's Best Light (but honestly all the "light" beers are the same IMO).

domaine du page is probably hard to find, not sure what two brothers' distribution is like

bruery should be findable

Fosters as we know it is not that common in Australia, I think I saw it a few times but no one drinks it. However, most of the major brews are made by the Fosters Brewing Company, and each of the states have their own major one. and VB is delicious

also light beers in australia have considerably lower ABVs

Whole foods actually has a pretty legit selection of beers if you don't have a great beer distributor by your home. I found Du Page there last year and usually find a few obscure ones that even the massive beer distributor by my house don't have. Prices are pretty reasonable too unlike their food.

I spoke too soon. It's actually called Shiner Ruby Redbird. They use the ruby red grapefruits that are native to Texas, though. Pretty cool imo.

Is it true that Amstel in the U.S. has significantly lower alcohol content than the version sold in Europe?

+1 to all of these

Also love the Stone Arrogant Bastard and when I can get it the Sublimely Self Righteous is outstanding.

Also the Victory Hopdevil, Bells 2Ale and Sam Adams Nobel Pils are the cases that I'll often purchase.

Sour beer is my favorite... We Belgians make some fine sour beer.

Duchesse as you mentioned
Rodenbach (my favorite, especially on vacation in the Belgian coast, every bar has it on the tap over there)
Bacchus
Petrus

These are all excellent if you're a fan of sour beer

My current favorite is Gumballhead by Three Floyds Brewery out of Munster, IN



Been raving about it to everyone. It's awesome. Pretty expensive though -- about 18 bucks/6 pack.
