    What is the best beer?

    What do you think is the best beer? Domestic and imported. Help me out, my coworkers give me a hard time because my domestic is Ice House. But my import fave is Guinness. Am I in a Paradox?

    I don't know if you are a Paradox ('cause I never could figure out what it really means), but definitely a clash in taste.

    I don't know if it is my favorite, but I just tried a Goose Island Hex Nut Brown Ale. It is a microbrew out of Chicago. One sip and I automatically considered it one of the best beers I have ever had. Smooth and creamy like Guinness, not as dark or thick.

    My personal favorite is a Hefe Weizen, either my own (Gus Riley's Red Foot Home Brewery, Hefe Weizen) which would be as domestic as a person can get, or any number of German Hefe Weizens, these would be imports. So, I guess as far as your domestic/import paradox, I stand in the same position.

    Ahhh yes... another fortunate individual has gotten goosed. Nut browns tend to be my favourite "social" beer too. Besides the Goose Island one, I also like Redhook's and Samuel Smith's Nut Brown Ale. I do like Guinness but to me it's also a different kind of beer. I guess if I had to cast my vote for my all-time favourite beer, it would be Sam Smith's Oatmeal Stout.

    My all time favorite is Rogan Rye a german doppel bock that is unfortunaly no longer imported, so now it is Aventinus, best beer available, period. If you like Guiness, check out Murphy's Stout, another also discontinued I believe is Cafrees (sp) MMMMM. Also try a snakebite (cider & lager or Bodingtons) people will try to tell you its cider and Guiness, but they are wrong.

    Big Butt

    I don't think there is anymore fun in a bar that to ask the waitress or bartender to "bring me a Big Butt.

    http://www.leinie.com/brewery_pages/taproom/bigbutt.asp

    Of course you can only do this in Wisconsin, maybe Minnesota, but I have drunk a whole bunch of different beers and this beer is super smooth and super full bodied. Nothing I have supped has matched it. After I've enjoyed my first one, I order a second with a shot of scotch to drop in it, and after that, I'm smokin camel non-filters. Its a slippery slope.

    khuon,

    I was being a little silly, but I really do think it's a good beer. On a whim, I bought a six pack of Pabst a couple of months ago. I'd had that song "Rednecks, white socks and bluuuueee ribbon beer" in my head. Anyway, it was suprisingly good, especially for the price. It has pleasent bitter bite.

    ehenz,

    There ya go, buddy!

    Althought I drink between two and six beers per year anymore, my two favorites are Kolorado Kool-Aid, aka Original Coors, and for imports, I am with you, Guinness.

    Asking for my favorite beer is like asking what my favorite song is.
    There are so many choices. I used to favor porters, Dechuetes Black Butte being my favorite bottled and Skagit River Brewery my favorite tap. I have since found the beauty of IPA's and My favorite is Diamond Knots Industrial IPA.
    My mass produced beer of choice these days is Fat Tire or their Porch Swing Ale when it is in season. Never have been into imports that much especially Mexican or Canadian (no NAFTA for this boy )
    Ah Pabst, that was my brew of choice when I lived in Cleveland years ago. Didn't have it in Seattle when I moved out here thought I had moved to hell (that and the only delivery pizza was Domino's )

    When it comes to beer I have more categories of beer than even music.
    Then I have sub categories who are runners up.
    Best domestic...Sam Adams. 2nd. Rolling Rock.
    Best local Micro brewer...San Diego...Karl Strauss.
    Favorite import...St. Paulie Girl. 2nd.Bohemia.
    Oldie but goodie. For those mid-westerners. I used to fly Republic airlines or
    NOrthwest..Anyone recall Heilmann's Special Export from Eau Claire, Wisc.
    Incredible beer. Does it still exist. They reportedly have the largest water tower in the world..It is shaped like a Heilmann's beer bottle. Little trivia. Loved that beer. Like so much of a good thing..They cease to exist because the bigger fish buy out the smaller fish..Instead of improve their product they buy out the opposition.
