I thought this would be an interesting discussion.

Basically, if you could only buy one brand of beer. Which brand would you chose? Most every member here has well refined tastes in beer. I don't expect too many people to say "Budweiser!" Not that there is anything wrong with that. Hey, whatever floats your boat.

With that noted. It's my goal to move away from buying any "brand" beer again. I have my favorites. But it is based not entirely on their beer, but rather their bottles. I like to reuse their bottles for my beer. Still, they make some mighty good beers too. I just cannot afford to buy them all of the time.

With that noted. I'll cast my vote for Sierra Nevada.

One brand? Probably Samuel Smith...

One beer? Either Bass pale ale or Pilsner Urquell

Sierra Nevada for the bottles. Terrapin for the beer.

Samuel Smiths for both good beer and sweet bottles. But would miss Westmalle for the same reasons.

Sierra Nevada is a good choice. I would also take Lagunitas.

[Edit] I meant SN or Lagunitas. But both would be OK too.
