Spinoff of the Lime beer thread, and it's probably been discussed. But not in a while.

If you had to have only one more beer for the rest of your life, what would it be?

I'm really partial to Dos Equis. I also make a kick ass ginger beer.

Tough question given how much I enjoy good beer. I'm like a beer sommelier.

My answer would be: Bell's Two Hearted Ale. It is my favorite India Pale Ale, and IPA is my favorite style of beer, so I guess that it should be my favorite beer overall.

I was in Mexico eleven years ago when I met my first (of many) Dos Equis. Man that's a nice beer. I prefer the lager version, if that makes sense.

All three beers branded as Dos Equis are lagers. The normal Dos Equis and the Dos Equis Dark Lager are both classified as beers of the Adjunct Lager style, and the Dos Equis Amber Lager is a Vienna Lager.

Probably a wheat. Maybe Mothership Wit. It's not my favorite beer by a long shot, but if you are only going to drink one beer for the rest of you life you need something basic and versatile.

Thank you Reaper.
The last waitress at the restaurant said "do you want the lager or the amber?".

I'm not that fond of any of them myself, but for what its worth I agree with you in that I enjoy the standard-issue Dos Equis lager over the other two.

My "fave beer of the month" is currently Arcadia's Hoprocket.

Hoppy as hell, strong, and oh so good. It's a bit pricey, but worth every penny.

For a little cheaper buzz from the same brewery, I also highly recommend their double IPA, Hopmouth.

The Blind Tiger makes a pretty damn good pale. Called Holy Grail Pale Ale. Or for that matter, Sierra Nevada Pale Ale or Boulevard Pale But if I had to choose one for the rest of my days it would probably have to be Sam Adams Boston lager or Hefenweizen(sp?).

Grinder's also has Hopmouth on tap, quite tasty and will really grab you by the boo boo if you aren't careful.

Hoprocket has been pretty tough for me to find outside of Lee's Summit. Fortunately for me, Gomer's here has a pretty large supply apparently. Both Flying Saucer and Grinder's had it on tap, but for a VERY short time. 9.0 abv and delicious.

The Altbier style is a German take on the Brown Ale that is conditioned for longer periods of time, ideally resulting in a superb smoothness.

I haven't had many Altbiers, as very few have been brewed by U.S. breweries. I've heard great things about Uerige Doppelsticke and Victor's MemoriAle Altbier (from Illinois' Two Brothers Brewing Co.)

Were you able to get a pint of Bear Republic's Racer X or Avery's Majaraja when Flying Saucer had them on-tap? The Saucer seems to get some nice Imperial IPAs on-tap with good frequency.

Alaskan Amber is incredibly smooth, which is one reason I favor it so much. I'll have to do a little research and see what kind of micro brews are sold out here.

I hate to say "favorite" but I remember having a Tiger in Singapore during my Navy days and it was damn good. I'm not about to try one in the US though, the first lesson I learned overseas was always drink local beer. Except Singha in Thailand. Even close to the source that stuff was foul.

I did have some Racer X on tap, but not the Maharaja. I did get a couple sixers of it however from Gomers. The beer guy at our store is pretty amazing, he loves the IPAs too.

Their new pale, Mighty Arrow is amazing on draft. Not as impressive in bottle form. In fact, I don't think I'll buy the bottle again but it will be first on my list if somebody has it on tap.

I'll drink almost any Lambic as long as it's not too fruity. Some frambosens take it a bit too far but some are delicious. It's a fine line for me.

I tried their new "Biere de Mars" on tap at Old Chicago tonight and really enjoyed it. It's very smooth and has just a hint of citrus aftertaste. Not so much that it tastes "fruity" or anything, but enough to give it a little kick.

I'm liking the Mighty Arrow both on draft and in the bottle. I don't understand why they classify it as a seasonal though.

Actually blue moon seasonals aren't bad...the summer honey moon is good on a hot ass day.

Hoegaarden is a thumb up

Best chick beer has got to be pyramid apricot...shit goes down so easy you don't even know it's a beer.

Best stealth beer that punches you in the face...Spaten Optimator. Shit will knock you out before you know it because it's super easy to drink and yet 7.2% Malt liquor!

I think the thread could have been locked after the first response. I'm not sure why Mr Bell decided to shine his love down upon North Carolina, but I love living in a state in which I can buy bottles, have it served on tap, or even purchase kegs of it. Bell's Two Hearted Ale, it is.

Not my favorite but it is perfect for this weather.

If I had to choose a favorite i'd probably go with Ommegang Abbey Ale or Murphy's irish stout.

I don't really a true favorite, it really depends on the season.

If it's summer I usually drink Rolling Rock or Labatts. If it's winter I drink Shiner Bock. If I'm out at dinner I'll usually have Blvd Wheat with my meal.
If I had to pick one beer and could never have anything else ever I'd probably pick Labatt Blue, but that's partly because I grew up in Wester NY and went to college in Buffalo and that's what we drank. I do really like it, too.

No problem. You know I'm a big fan of yours. But people who drink mass produced swill are influenced heavily by commercials. I don't know why anybody would drink that garbage when they can get a quality crafted brew for a couple pennies more.

That said, sometimes I'll land in a place where nothing else is available I'll drink a couple of Busch Lights. That brew is far and away more hoppy and tasty than any other of the big 3 brews.

Probably because you can get a 30 pack of cans of Bud Light, Miller Lite, or Coors Light for anywhere from $15-$19 dollars.

If I go to HyVee and pick up a six pack of Hoegaarden it's gonna cost me close to $9. If I want to drink a lot of those and get drunk, I'm gonna have to spend close to $20 for 12 beers. If I'm going fishing or just drinking to kick off the night, I'm probably gonna be drinking some cheap beer. It has nothing to do with commercials, and everything to do with the price.

You and my son would enjoy this conversation. He only drinks the "fancy" beers. We were out last time he was back home and the place we were at had a limited beer menu. He ordered Boulevard Wheat? I think. Anyway he said it was pretty good but listed a bunch of beers I had never heard of he liked better :spock:. As far as myself I just grew up drinking the "swill" as you call it and it tastes good to me. Maybe me and the boy will make it to KC again and you two can give me a crash course. ;)

I really like Goose Island's IPA. Many times I'll find myself in the beer aisle wanting to try something new and I break down and just get the Goose Island again. O'Dells IPA is pretty damn good too.

But if we're talking one beer for life, I'm going to have to go with Boulevard Pale. It's my old standby and I think I'd be less likely to get sick of it than something that's a little hoppier.

I've drank enough cheap, shitty beer in my life to fill a water tower. Budweiser, Busch, Coors, Miller, whatever - I never liked any of them, I just drank to get drunk or because everybody else was drinking. Now that I'm older and don't drink for the single purpose of getting hammered every goddamn night, I've decided to drink beer that actually tastes good. Give me a quality wheat beer or give me a glass of fucking water. If Hacker-Pschorr costs a bit more, that's OK. I'll only be having three or four instead of 20.

For the most part, people want a refreshing, light beer, that they can drink in mass quantities...you know...in order to get drunk. Don't get me wrong, I love all sorts of more enjoyable beers, but I'm not gonna stuff my cooler full of Blvd. Wheat bottles when I'm going fishing.

But, I'll really drink just about anything. Right now I think I have some PBR, Bud Light Lime, and some Coors Light in my fridge. Some of those were left here by my friends, therefore, those beers are the best.

I've drank enough cheap, shitty beer in my life to fill a water tower. Budweiser, Busch, Coors, Miller, whatever - I never liked any of them, I just drank to get drunk or because everybody else was drinking. Now that I'm older and don't drink for the single purpose of getting hammered every goddamn night, I've decided to drink beer that actually tastes good. Give me a quality wheat beer or give me a glass of ****ing water. If Hacker-Pschorr costs a bit more, that's OK. I'll only be having three or four instead of 20.exactly. Do the math.... $0.25-$0.50 a beer difference.

If I had to pick one for the rest of my life, I'd probably go with the Dogfish Head.

Probably because you can get a 30 pack of cans of Bud Light, Miller Lite, or Coors Light for anywhere from $15-$19 dollars.

If I go to HyVee and pick up a six pack of Hoegaarden it's gonna cost me close to $9. If I want to drink a lot of those and get drunk, I'm gonna have to spend close to $20 for 12 beers. If I'm going fishing or just drinking to kick off the night, I'm probably gonna be drinking some cheap beer. It has nothing to do with commercials, and everything to do with the price.

I buy Shiner twelvers on sale for $7.99 all the time. It's not 30 beers but it's 24 for $16.00

My one beer would be a pale ale that I brewed myself. I am a novice at homebrewing, but I would improve if that's all I could drink and American pale ales are my favorite style.

This would solve the cost problem a lot of you have with craft beer as well, since homebrewing comes out to roughly .50 a beer. (in my calculation and after start up costs.) :thumb:

Rep! I get a chuckle out of the beer snob bullshit. I drink the fancy beers sometimes when I go to a club, I normally drink Bud Light or Miller Lite.
To the question I guess Bud Light.

It's not all bullshit,take me for instance,I drink a Bud,Miller or Coors and within 1-2 beers I have a massive headache.My lil bro who started brewing his own beer some 10 years ago told me I was more than likely having a reaction to the rice in those beers and to try what you label a "fancy" beer.

I did and bingo no more headaches so I developed quite a taste for other beers and now if I'm at a place that only serves those other beers I'll opt for water or a mixer and not only because I don't want a headache,but because the "fancy" beers are just better period.

As far as my favorite beer? That's kinda like asking what my favorite meal is. It depends on alot of things. The weather, the event, the food, etc. To date, my favs are fat tire, boulevard pale ale, steelhead pale ale, 1554, guiness, blue moon.

For those of you out there that really like the pricier beers, brewing your own is the only way to go. My favorite is Arrogant Bastard Ale, which is from a local CA brewery, and for the price of 12 beers I can brew a 5 gal batch. It is also a great way to watch baseball/football whatever. Once you get the technique down, you can craft your own the way you like it..I've doctored recipes to my or my wife's taste from bases such as Guinness, Murphys(both the stout and the Amber),Hoegaarden, lindemans Frambois(not a true Lambic but close), Pyramid,Sam Adams, Sierra Nevada, you name it; and it is not that difficult, just a little labor intensive.

No problem. You know I'm a big fan of yours. But people who drink mass produced swill are influenced heavily by commercials. I don't know why anybody would drink that garbage when they can get a quality crafted brew for a couple pennies more.

That said, sometimes I'll land in a place where nothing else is available I'll drink a couple of Busch Lights. That brew is far and away more hoppy and tasty than any other of the big 3 brews.

'Zactly. I am not ashamed to admit that I used to drink those common beers. Milwaukee's Best, Bud, Bud Light, Miller Genuine Draft, Busch, etc. Hell, when I was young (before legal) we would sometimes get a hold of a case of Weidman's. Talk about swill. :Lin:

But over the past few years, I have really gotten into trying different brews. And I have discovered that I like beer with some flavor. Not the watered down big 3 names.

That being said, I was at a graduation party a couple of weeks ago. These were some good friends and they had a keg of Miller Lite. I actually thought of going te so thtore and getting some good beer but I thought better of it because I didn't want to insult them. I drank that keg Miller Lite beer all that night. I'll admit that it took a bit to get through the first cup or two. Definitely not my first choice, but it was free.

If you're a hardcore light beer drinker - the Pilsner would probably be a good beer for you.

It's a little heavier than most American light beers, but not a heavy as the rest of the Boulevard beers.

I just had a long discussion with a coworker of mine about "fancy" beers.

He is wine drinker and we were discussing good wines. Somehow the conversation got involved with beer as well. I was formerly a bud light drinker, 99% of the time. That was always my beer. Within the last 3 years though, I went away from it and now I will only drink it if I am just looking to get hammered.

Anyway, my thoughts are that the "fancy" beers have a bit of an aquired taste to them, but MOST people do not drink them because they are "fancy" but because they are good. It's a lot like wine... sure you can drink some box wine, but just because you drink something that costs a little more doesn't mean you are necessarily snobbish.

Back on track... at this moment, my favorite is Blvd Single Wide IPA.

I've had Alaskan Amber before, and the interesting thing is that its not an Amber Ale, despite the labeling. I would have to classify it as an Altbier.

I agree, and I really liked it alot. Only place I found it though was at QT in Phoenix. I guess its a west coast thing?

Spinoff of the Lime beer thread, and it's probably been discussed. But not in a while.

If you had to have only one more beer for the rest of your life, what would it be?

I'm really partial to Dos Equis. I also make a kick ass ginger beer.


There is no way I could make one beer last the rest of my life. :)

But if I had to choose it would be a toss-up between Arrogant Bastard or Alaskan Amber, whichever is closest to the front of the shelf when I open the refrigerator door.

Serious? Oh well shows how much I know.

What do you consider fancy Reaper?
I don't consider any beer to be "fancy." I don't consider any wine to be fancy, either. Using that word carries with it this implication that you're not being down-to-earth enough or "real person" enough if you drink it.

I get a little peeved at some beers that get a bunch of hype among craft beer people because they're released only one day a year (perfect example: Dark Lord (Russian Imperial Stout) by Three Floyds Brewery). Those aren't fancy, just annoyingly hard to get a bottle of.

ATM...I'll keep it local and go with Blvd. Pale Ale. Just hoppy enough for me. Their Single Wide IPA is a touch too much for my tastes. But Hoegaarden is fucking ace.

Wal Mart has it 3.2% for 7.50

The shitty liquor store has it at 6% for 11. Way overpriced and I let them know about it today.

Tough question given how much I enjoy good beer. I'm like a beer sommelier.

My answer would be: Bell's Two Hearted Ale. It is my favorite India Pale Ale, and IPA is my favorite style of beer, so I guess that it should be my favorite beer overall.

Good call, but I think I will go with the Dogfish Head 90 minute IPA. It is my personal favorite IPA.

So the stupid "Most Interesting Man in the World" commercials / the unabashed reference made to said commercial on ESPN yesterday made me want some Dos Equis. So I went to a rather large liquor store off Range Line.

Inside, I found nirvana.

It was awesome. Liquors of every stripe and flag. Tonnes of it too. They even had Genesee Cream Ale that my dad claims is impossible to get down here in the boonies, far away from Cleveland. Before walking in I remembered reading this thread (if not reading it while I was eating before going to Macadoodles) about making your own sixpack. And there it was, a shelf dedicated to do it yourself sixpacking. So I indulged. Shiner Bock, Stella Artoris, Genesee Cream Ale, Sam Adams Light, Labatt Blue, and Berghoff Prairie Lager. Never had any of them before, so it's going to be an adventure. Oh, and I still got a six pack of Dos Equis... And a sign saying "Drinking Games Slow Me Down".

Going to break out the DVD player, pop in either Stripes or Groundhog Day and have a chillaxed Friday Night.
