Goose Island Bourbon County Stout is simply a ridiculous beer, though not something I would want all the time. Bell's has several great beers, and both their Pale and Brown beers are very good.

Probably the beer I drink the most is Sierra Nevada Pale Ales. Very good to just relax with.


Good call ;-D

Where in the hell can I get some microbrews in Phoenix? My manager at work invited me to her party this weekend and I feel like sipping on some microbrews.

Oh Man!!! Thanks to Coppermine, I found a place 5 minutes away and man, was I a kid at a candy store. I stood in front of the case for 20 minutes. I had no idea what I wanted. Basically, I bought a couple of single bottles to try out then ended up getting a 6 pack of Bohemia (a favorite of mine).

So far I have tried the Shiner Hefeweizen, which I like.

Before I started making my own, I was fond of Widmer's Hefeweizen (you'll never go back to Pyramid), Sierra Nevada Pale and Red Hook ESP, depending on mood.

But as an avowed hophead, my main goal was trying as many IPAs as possible. Moose's Tooth brewpub in Anchorage tops the list, but my favorites available in bottle are probably Bridgeport and, to a lesser extent, Blue Heron.

I bust out IPAs and Hefs pretty regularly (I can clone a match to Pyramid but haven't been able to capture Widmer yet :-/), but my personal choice is a pale with the hops of an IPA but with a reduced malt body. Great for when the weather starts to warm. I believe I'll go crack one now!

Great thread, and some great choices here, guys.

Hey homebrewer... I've been making my own wine for years and I'm going to get into homebrewing beer this summer. I can't wait.

I'm also a huge IPA fan. My favorite is Troegs Nugget Nectar, a fairly new beer from a regional brewery in Harrisburg, PA. Apparently a lot of beer geeks are talking about it. Strangely enough, it's not officially and IPA, but seems more like one than an Amber Ale as Beer Advocate suggests.

Victory's HopDevil and Great Divide's Titan IPA are also excellent examples of the variety.

My favorite beer though is La Fin du Monde.

I took the day off work to lay new flooring in my kitchen and I've got some PBR to help me through it. :-D

I'm simple. Amstel Lite for me. Tastes great and, for some reason, the bottle feels great on the lips. :-B
