What is your favorite beer OR what are you currently trying?

For all your pre- and post-PAW food and beverage recipes. Just because it keeps you alive doesn't mean it shouldn't be tasty.

For all of you who are friends of Zombie Granny, just wanted to let you know that I'm drinking some of her homemade hefeweizen (wheat beer). She just made 6 gallons of it; took a week and a half and it is the best hefeweizen I ever had. What a lucky boy am I. :clap:

Right now I have a growler of Pliny the Elder in the fridge. I love Blind Pig by Russian River as well. Anything by Bear Republic I like as well as Lagunitas esspecially Hop Stoopid. Campfire Stout by highwater is pretty tasty too...I like beer... So many. We should start a (its 5oclock someplace) thread... tried to post a pic but I guess they are too big now.

Right now just doing specialty grains and extracts all grain starts this summer after clearing off my deck (I do gravity system for all grain) to make room. But I found with all the LME and DME available I can make pretty good clones of my fav beers from extract. Corny kegerator in july temp controled fermenter soon so I can lager.

The Avery Twenty XX IPA was $7.99 for a twenty-two ounce bottle. So I went with that instead.

Stone Go to IPA is pretty good... not as good as their "Drink by...." but one is a session and one is a DIPA. Had that after a glass of my homemade rice wine which turned out delightful.

Shiner Bock

Lawnmower
Weedeater

Ugly Pug

I try to keep it in Texas but if I travel I drink Yuengling or Old Style as required.

I guess they still make Old Style. It has been many a moon since I was in the Upper midwest

Been trying to save money, so just been grabbing what has been on sale. For Hawaii, lately that's been Kona Brewery beer. I've been on a heat beating, refreshing light tasting beer kick, and their Big Wave Golden Ale, and Wailua Wheat have been hitting the spot.

I'm not usually one for lighter tasting beers with a fruity finish, but they do it right.

Speaking of buying what's on sale, I took a chance on Sam Adam's Latitude 48 IPA because it was being discounted at my local grocery store. It's a lighter bodied beer with an extremely pronounced hoppy flavor. Really good stuff, especially in the warm summer months.

Longboard is an absolute staple here, and is on tap at just about every "real" bar on island. It's my go to beer when I don't want to have to look to see what they have on tap.

My preferred beer used to be Shiner Bock, but at close to 8 or 9 bucks for a sixer of it (depends on the booze store), I switched to Michelob Ultra Light.

It's slightly cheaper at 6 something for a sixer and it's one of the few light beers I've had that didn't taste like crap.

Of course, I mix it up every now and then by drinking some Woodchuck Hard Cider. I say every now and then because that stuff is like 9 bucks for a six pack and few stores in my AO carry it.

I reside in Vermont, which has more breweries than trees, more trees than cows, and more cows than people, so I can't help pick out a new brew every time I hit a liquor store. From the bottle I generally bring home a local brew from a place called The Shed. If I'm at a bar, I'll usually go with a tap-only Switchback Ale.
