I usually get a bomber of elysian or a sixer of Deschutes when the lines run low. Occasionally I will get Sam Adams if I am sharing with company.

Well, I'll usually go for a 64oz bottle of Natty Light, Red White and Blue or Pabst Blue Ribbon if they got it. You know, if I should be so lucky.

Then I make sure I get one of those little brown paper bags, so I can wrap the bag around it but still not cover the mouth of the bottle. Then I walk up and down the sidewalk in the bad areas of town, yelling at cars as they drive by and smoking any cigarette butts I can find.

I drink SN, SN torpedo, and... Blue moon. Franziskaner gets honorable mention too. But I have been collecting high ABV beers and stashing them when I have the extra cash for times like when I am broke

In that case, I'd rather not drink six. No offense. Five is plenty. No whale for me

Guinness is fantastic any day of the week, but I also enjoy the local brews, Devil's (Pale) Ale from San Tan and 8th Street Pale Ale from Four Peaks.

I am very new to brewing. I have my first brew ready to bottle in a few days and my second brew in the primary. I try to drink local because the big three and commercialized beers take away from that.

One thing I suggest of all home brewers is buy local. As I wait for my beers to finish, I have been drinking Troegs Hopback, Victory Headwaters, Penn Brewing, Yards, Sly Fox and various Yuengling products (Porter and Lord Chesterfield). Of course, Yuengling is a granddaddy her in PA. I did research and found at one time PA had a large amount of breweries that were lost after prohibition and WWII. Researching this made me want to homebrew.

I hate to be a preachy nutcase, but I try to support those local breweries. It keeps money in the state economy and fights the big guys. For eight plus months I only bought local (PA) beers and was turned on to a ton of neat brews. I have cheated a few times when I've gotten Magic Hat and Uinta products on sale. Anyhow, drink whatcha like. If you're making your own it's going to taste like gold soon.

LOVE me a Yuengling! I also like most of what Sweetwater makes (local brewery here in Atlanta).
