    A&W.

    Never liked beer (have a low tolerance for bitter), but I did get the cider habit when visiting the UK years ago. Not always an easy thing to find in Michigan. At a little pub i visited in Ontario recently they had Blackthorn cider on draught...mmm! I buy Green Mountain in bottles when I can find it but it's on the sweet side.

    Sorry to interrupt...you "hop" heads talk amongst yourselves.

    I have one of Sierra Nevada's bike jerseys, and they sponsor a domestic cycling team.

    But, I'm more a fan of Black Butte Porter (especially good at lunch during a day of skiing).

    And, for something unique, try to find one of the new Porter/Espresso brews (e.g., Smugglers Powder Night Espresso Porter from Smugglers Brewpub & Grille, Telluride, CO). Porters are my favorite beer, and I also like espresso...the combination is outstanding!

    Shiner Bock

    a dark beer from the little brewery in Shiner, Texas that always goes well with boot-scooting C&W music or wailin' blues

    Here in England we have, IMHO, the best bittters in the world. The Campaign for Real Ale champions the little independent breweries.

    http://www.camra.org.uk/

    To select a single favourite would be an injustice, Fullers ESB, Pendle Witch, Fox's Knob, Marston's Empire, Jock Strap, Fiddler's Elbow,Hobgoblin etc etc.
    Some pubs even have a micro-brewery attatched, The Wasdale Head Inn , in the Lake District, brews several different strengths, and I believe the Blue Anchor in Helston Cornwall makes a strong brew called Spingo.

    So many to choose from, and none of them are lager beers.

    BUt if I have to then Theakston's Old Peculier has always gone down well.

    As someone who used to make part of my living as a professional beer taster, but has now been sober for six years, I can say... there are way to many excellent beers to have just one favorite. There has never been a time in history when so many choices of well crafted beer have been available to so many people. That is not to say that there isn't swill out there too. But just one favorite? Never! The real questions should be:

    What's your favorite beer after a century in the hot sun with temps. over 90 degrees?
    What's your favorite beer after a late evening summer ride that was relaxed and care free?
    What's your favorite beer after a cold winter night ride off road with friends who like to hammer?
    What's your favorite beer after a bisk ride when the leaves are turning color and you have to take off layers, only to put them back on again?
    What's your favorite beer when the weather is so bad all you can do is sit at the window and dream of rides to come?
    What's your favorite beer to drink in celebration of a new bike?
    Having one favorite beer is like having just one bike. Highly possible, but why limit yourself to just one?
    A conclusion is the place where you got tired of thinking. - S. Wright

    That's good. I like Spotted Cow and Yokel by New Glarus Brewing, Flying Dog Pale Ale, Goose island India Pale Ale and Honker's Ale, and too many others to list here.

    I think they've toned down the hops in Sierra Nevada over the years, or my tolerance has increased . Now I'm hitting the hard stuff, like Saint Arnold's Elissa IPA (made right here in beautiful Houston) or Avery IPA. DogFish Head and Flying Dog are also good IPAs. My lovely bride, who was a Miller Light drinker when we met 20+ years ago, is now into Stouts or Hefeweizens depending on the mood.

    But as stated earlier, different beers for different times. And like good wine, so many yet to be discovered ....

    For any of us English to state what is their favourite beer- It all depends what Pub you are in. Most of the Bitter's are available in bottles so can be sold all over the world but there is nothing like the taste of a real ale- straight from the Cask. My favourite is a Kent one called Spitfire. When I lived in that part of the world- I used to call at a Pub just outside West Malling Airfield where they had it on Draught. Nothing like a warm balmy evening and a Pint of your local brew to finish off the day.

    Just Like Jibi, Lagers are out for me but if any of you do like this fizzy pop- then the Belgian beers take a lot of beating.

    When my son and I were in Ireland, he and I enjoyed Smithwick's Ale (pronounced "Smittick's"), brewed in Kilkenny. Yum! Actually found it at a store in Sacramento, but somehow it didn't taste as good. The same with Guinness. Nothing like a Guinness in an Irish pub, along with some good craic (pronounced "crack"), or good fun!

    >>>Smithwick's Ale (pronounced "Smittick's"), brewed in Kilkenny. Yum!

    The Irish lads I walked about with called it "smivicks". Mid-day "wash" in a pub with 15 miles behind us and 10 more to go. Heaven. I see it's being marketed here in West [Occupied] Virginia now.

    What does Madonna like?

    I'm originally from the north of England, from a town called Keighley. There's a small brewery there, called Timothy Taylors.
    Madonna, now living in the UK, was being interviewed by the BBC about why a person rich and famous enough to live anywhere chose the UK, and what she liked about it. She said, among other things she liked the friendliness of pubs and the taste of locally brewed beers - and when pressed, she said that her favourite was Timothy Taylors "Landlord Bitter". ( An excellent brew!)
    The BBC news the following morning called the brewery's PR person to ask what the effects of this celebrity endorsement would be. In a nice north country acccent the response was "Well, I'm glad she likes it, but it won't change much - there's only a small kettle, and there's plenty waiting before her"

    It's hard to get any local brews around these parts so for a mass produced beer I'd have to go with Sam Adams.

    Bleech! Shiner Bock is not good. I don't care that Lance likes it.

    SNPA is actually one of my faves that I can get at the grocery store. Flying Dog Pale Ale used to be a lot less expensive than SNPA and was a very good bargain. Now they cost the same locally so I now buy SNPA.

    Here is a funny beer story. Back in the early 90's I was in Bavaria for a week. When I got back to the States all the "good" beers tasted terrible compared to the wonderful brews I had been drinking, especially the ones brewed by the monks. IIRC they were called "cloisterbiers". VERY YUMMY! I also liked the "Mas Krug" default size for a beer.

    I also like a Hoegaarden on occasion (mentioned earlier). Now we need to start having very careful definitions about what is a "beer" to say what is allowed and what isn't. Do we allow any grain or just barley?
    I'm the world's forgotten boy. The one who's searchin', searchin' to destroy.
