With all the 'is this beer overrated or that beer to yellow' why not t say what your favorite is of the commercial / craft beers

Today mine is Fullers London's Pride
Friday it'll be Hob Goblin (I pass the shop were its only €2 a 500 ml bottle)
There my 2 at the minute

Really hard question. I really like Sam Adams Black Lager, but that is such a big brewery. I got hooked on black lagers when I visited New Zealand. They have 2 large breweries there and the black lagers are like the bud light here, but they actually have taste! I've been trying to find them in the states and it seems Sam Adams is the only widely distributed one that I like.
Other than that, I really like Blue Point Oatmeal Stout. It is also great mixed with their blueberry ale to make a black and blue. Yum!

that's a tough question to answer. it's like asking me whether i like my right or left ball better. Can't i just like them both? There are way too many great beers out there to pick favorites- my favorite?- the one in front of me!

Can't stop buying this even though it's out of my price range. I've never had a beer that smelled more like kettle wort and tasted the way I picture wort should. I long to make something this good.

For me, it's really hard to beat Pliny the Elder. For me it's the benchmark other DIPAs have to live up to. And living in SoCal it's only marginally difficult to find.

For something more readily available from a (well stocked) grocery store I'd say probably SNPA or Torpedo Extra IPA.

There's too many great beers out there for me to ever be able to nail just one down. It really depends on the mood. I probably have one favorite commercial from most beer styles, but that's about it.
