Two places come to mind- the first is the I&I Rooftop Bar in Caye Caulker, Belize. The only two story building on the island, with rickety steps (so NOT up to US codes!) and you sit on the flat roof and can barely see the lights from the mainland 20 miles alway as the Caribbean breeze blows over you. I spent my birthday 2002 there. It was early (but dark), and Bob and I were alone in the bar. I was drinking a Belikin beer.

The other place is also in Belize- but on the mainland. A thatched roof building on stilts with open windows on the sand in the caribbean. It was called Mangoes, and we sat at the open window and felt the breeze over us as we ate ceviche and drank Belikin. Might have been my birthday in 2001- I think. To find this bar, you walk on the beach from your cabana with your right foot in the water. Coming back in the dark, you keep your left foot in the water. It was only about 500 yards up the beach. But there were no other buildings for miles around, so it was wonderful.

Interesting ones first:
Oktoberfest Zinzinnati, 2007. All the best German bier, music, and food outside of Germany. Munich's "sister city" did it right last year. We arrived for lunch but then kept drinking and eating and partying late into the evening.

Montana Beer Fest, 2006. The best beer the west had to offer, and lots of experimental stuff and chatting with the pros (many of whom didn't care if you had a beer ticket or not). Good times.

At the edge of Hyalite Lake (outside Bozeman, MT) after one of the most beautiful and rewarding hikes of my life. (it was worth lugging the beers up there)

And now the less interesting, but more genuine responses:

Evenings on the front porch or lawn with friends. It's hard to beat great conversations and great beers under the stars on a summer night.

Brew sessions with SWMBO. She is still and always will be my favorite drinking buddy, and having her as a brew partner is just that much better!

Really enjoying reading these posts, and want to add a forecast: Here's hoping the upcoming 2008 AHA Homebrew Conference Club Night becomes the next addition to my list! Can't wait say "cheers" with some of you HBT'ers and actually clink pints together!

That sounds lovely, Yooper. Way to put those serene Corona commercials to shame!

When I lived in Germany, there was a little place about 2 min on bike from my house on a scenic bend in the Rhine. It was called the Aschloch (literally a hole in an Ash Tree, but a play on words ... Arschloch=a-hole). It was basically a little hut with my 4 favorite regional beers on draft, some basic sausages and chips, and a bunch of outdoor tables in the grass next to the river. I could drink Shumacher Alt there until my liver crawled away. I know I've hit an Alt recipe right if the first whiff puts me right back there.

My garage now that I have a 4-tap kegerator.

And Hollingshead's Delicatessen by my house here in Orange. They have lots of taps full of great beer, and hundreds of bottles of great beer to take home. They even let you put your name on a glass and keep it there. Plus their sandwiches are amazing.

My patio on a cool spring evening with a big fire raging in the pit. The taps are within steps and there is no line for the bathroom. A nice game of bags or pool are right at my fingertips too.

#2 - US Cellular field - watching my White Sox spank an opponent.
