So, I'm on a mission to try a large variety of beers to expand my beer tastes and knowledge. I'm making a detailed journal of all the beers that I've tried and will try. I will share my findings on this board when I'm done. I was researching online when I realized this would be the best place to find out which great beers I should try first.


So please, tell me your favorite beers!!

My all time favorite beer is Moose Drool from Big Sky Brewing. It is a brown ale that is malty and has a slight hop bitterness that balances it out.

Thus far my two "favourite" beers are Wychwood's Hobgoblin and Rogue's Mocha Porter, thought there's a few ESBs I like (Red Hook comes to mind)

If I could only have one beer for the rest of my life it would be an American lager like plain old Budweiser. Goes fine with any food, great in hot weather, I can drink scotch in the winter time.

If I get two, add Guiness please.

It is picking the third one that gets to be a bother. I'll have a list like Yuri and have to choose.

My favorite (and you should be able to get it in your neck of the woods) is Magic Hat #9.
