    Since I haven't had a beer in two weeks I figured I'd make a post about them. (No I'm not an alcoholic, I just play one in real life)

    So what are your favorites?

    The Usuals:

    - Dos Equis w/ Lime
    - Shiner Blonde / Black / Regular
    - Bass

    Those seem to be available everywhere, but my favorites are:

    - Chimay Red
    - Duvel
    - Midas Touch (Love the history and unique flavor)

    A nice, big, juicy steak with fresh crushed black pepper and cayenne, a fresh Bavarian rye round, a few slices of cheese, and a 1L bottle of Duvel and Chimay is quite possibly the closest to medieval bliss as one gets. If you're having a bad day, this will cheer you up better than anything.

    When I'm feeling a bit more spirited I generally reach for the Johnny Walker Black. I tried it on a whim and was pleased. It has a nice robust flavor, alot of vanilla and oak flavors.

    Anyone else got any favorites? I'm game to try a few.

    I do not support anything made by the top three, the beer industry have more lobbyists than any other special interest group. The 3 tier system, in place since the end of prohibition, is in direct conflict with the capitalist ideals of our country. This system prevents the brewery from selling or distributing their own beer.

    I'll drink a Bohemia with some mexican food.
    A Young's Double Chocolate with some Lindemans Framboise in ii aint bad.

    For the most part beer gasses me up & I would rather drink gin or vodka.

    Most any IPA like Dog Head Fish 60 and 90 minute or Stone
    Most any Belgain ales especially Trappist. Like Westmalle, Orval, or Westvleteren. [SIZE=-1][/SIZE]
    Anchor Liberty Ale and Anchor Steam Beer.
    Anything from Sierra Nevada

    For local or domestics, I like the offerings from the Fort Worth brewery Rahr. Storm Cloud whic is an India Pale Ale, and Blond which is a German Helles style.

    Speaking of Rahr, Visiting that brewery in Fort Worth is a blast. Saturday afternoon 1 - 3. Pay $5 for a keeper glass (or bring one from the last time) then $5 gets you four 16 oz beers of the many varieties they have on tap, while a live band plays and people mill around the brewing equipment.

    Coors Light on a regular basis
    Blue Moon on occasion
    Whiskey (more than beer):
    Buffalo Trace
    Crown Reserve
    Knob Creek

    That's pretty much it for me. I drink way more Buffalo Trace than anything these days.


    I usually forego the red can, but someone was talking about Bourbon and Coke so I thought I'd oblige them on that particular night.
