I agree with the idea that the experience matters just as much as the beer itself. After my freshman year of college, and drinking Milwaukee's best and keystone light all year, a friend of mine and I split a six pack of yuengling. I have had it since, and it tastes like a normal mass produced lager, but nothing will match those three beers I had back then.

Besides that, I really like the Back in Black IPA from 21st Amendment.

I think the best tasting beer I ever had was a Bud or maybe it was a Coors, but It was the first beer in a week after a backpacking trip and at the end of the trail was a bar. I was hot and tired. Man was that beer good!

The 2011 (512) Brewery Whisky Barrel Aged Double Pecan Porter. Best beer to touch my lips. This year's offering was great, they switched up the barrels to a different Whisky and it lost some of the smoothness of last year's offering.

My fiancee and I were looking for a little neighborhood beer bar near our hotel in NYC when we were there for a long weekend. I wanted to have a quick beer before a day of sightseeing and museums with my bro who lives there. We found this little place on 106th and Columbus that had just opened at 11:00 AM and stopped in and sat right beside the front window that they had just opened and we could touch the sidewalk from there. Ordered a Delirium Tremens and onion rings for breakfast and that DT was the best either of us had ever tasted. It's far from my favorite beer - although the style is about my fav - but on tap and with the highly positive vibe we had going, it was sublime.

My buddy brought me a fresh growler of SN Hoptimum. That was a great evening.

It's a tie between that and a bomber of Union Jack I had recently... i've had UJ many times but that bomber was amazing.

Granite's "Peculiar" (Halifax, NS) and Driftwood's Fat Tug IPA (Victoria, BC). And I absolutely loved the Guinness straight out of the tap at St. James Gate in Dublin...

Some of my homebrews are my favorites. But if I'm going with store bought I would say Fat Tug from Driftwood. If you can find it I highly recommend it.

My best beer: too many variables and choices.

My most memorable: first batch of Irish red ale.
Turns out my sanitizing wasn't up to snuff and it was like a mouthful of vinegar.

Only batch I ever ruined. So not too bad on that front. Just something I will NEVER forget. Crushed pride
