Default The best commercial?

What would everyone consider the beer that they would like to emulate when they are making their own beer? Obviously personal preference and variety have a huge effect. I'm not talking about crap beers like bud etc., but maybe something like anderson valley (from CA if ur not aware), thats my personal preference of breweries.

Depends on the style. I'd like to match Dorryman's Dark from Pelican, but I love Austinhomebrew's Roque Mocha Porter clone. IPA? Who can chose! Do your best & dryhop with Cascades. Stouts? Lots of choices there, but too many of them are Imperials these days.

There are certain attributes of other beers that I like to see in mine but I never "clone" other beers. I like all of my recipes to have something unique about them, whether its a carapils addition or from 20L to 40L.

i'd love to clone magic hat #9, my wife loves it! i tried to do it once with a recipe from the 'clonebrews' book with apricot extract, it just wasn't the same.

but that was when we lived in ohio and couldn't get it there. now that we live in vermont we can just buy it anywhere or go drive 2 hours to the brewery and get a fresh growler or 3.

i guess it's more fun to throw some ingredients together and make a new beer. why replicate something that you can cheaper and quicker?

busch lite - it's the best tasting water i've found...good for hydration

nah i wouldn't emulate anything. people ask me "what does your beer taste like". i tell them "well, it tastes like my beer". i don't "clone" beers and i don't brew to style. i brew to taste... my taste.

I've tried to get close to these guys, but they put this restraining order on me. Lakefront brewery, they started out as homebrewers and still give the best brewery tour I have been on yet.
