My wife once asked me what my favorite beer was. Wow, what a loaded question. I told her, that depends. What type are we talking here? Well, I came up with a few categories and my selections in that category. Here are a few of my entries. Keep in mind, there are probably thousands of beers out there that could fit these categories, and many that are better than I have listed. Sadly, I have not tried every beer made. I am only reporting the results of my ongoing research. I will try more beers in the future.
So, my favorites:
Cheap Macrobrew: Miller High Life Light
National Microbrew: Sam Adams Boston Lager
Regional Microbrew: Summit Extra Pale Ale (St. Paul, MN)
Local Microbrew: Schmaltz's Alt (New Ulm, MN)
Cheap Microbrew: Henry Weinhard's Pale Ale
Import Stout: Guinness
Import non-stout: Heineken
Beer better on tap than in the bottle: Leinenkugel's
Beer I can't buy here in MN: Fat Tire Belgium Ale
Beer I brought home from Germany; Warsteiner
Favorite beer I had while in Germany: All of them!]
Beer I make myself: My Experimental Ale is really, really good (by may standards).
Brewpub beer: the Stout from the now defunct Crane River Brewery in Lincoln, NE.
By Timezone (excluding beers previously mentioned):
Pacific: Sierra Nevada Pale Ale
Mountain: Moose Drool Brown Ale
Central: Sprecher Black Bavarian
Eastern: Yuengling Porter
There are so many good beers in world. I have surely left many good beers out. The research shall continue.
So, what kind of beer do you like?
