So many styles!

Weienstephaner Hefeweizen...the benchmark hefe, IMO. Haven't been able to find it around here in quite a while.

I go through quite a bit of Hoegaarden, Sammy Smith porter, and Sierra Nevada Pale ale, depending on my mood.

I guess those qualify as commercial. I've gotten damned picky since I've gotten into brewing. The only big macro I'll pay for now is Yuengling. I used to think Hurricane was the business considering the price, then one day I poured it into a glass and let the odor escape....krikey!

I have to go with Sprecher Dopple Bock right now, it's a seasonal brew, I highly suggest it.

ERRR!!!! I miss Sprecher's brews.....Hopefully I can still find some of that when I'm up there in April.....
Staying in Milwaukee and catching a Brewers game. I'm psyched. The highlight will be bringing home a case or two of Leinies. Creamy Dark here I come!!!!!!!!

I see Stoudt's every time I go to my local beer distributor, but I never expected it to be any good. Most of the "local" homebreweries aren't that great (Appalachian, Lancaster, Flying Fish, Victory). I will definitely try it next time...

As for a favorite, I don't have one in particular...
Any Sam Adams
Sierra Nevada Pale Ale
Anchor Steam Beer
Boddington's
Bass Ale

I spend about 20 minutes at the distributor every time I go, it's such a hard decision

And of course, there's always the old standby of Yuengling. It flows from the taps around here, I live only 10 minutes away from the brewery.

Good taste, my man. Aside from Boddington's (which I've never tried), all of those are favorites of mine. Bass used to be the greatest thing in the world to me, Sam Adams is always good, Anchor's a new favorite, Sierra Nevada is liquid gold, and no matter what they may say, I'll always love Yeungling.

Boddingtons is interesting......it's a pale golden ale in a can w/ a nitro widget in it. So you end up w/ this crisp light golden ale w/ a Guinness head on it.......

The Guinness head is what is good about it, without that it would probably not be very impressive... in fact, I know it wouldn't be... I tried to brew a clone of Boddington's and bottle condition it, and it was nowhere near as good...

Shiner Bock. It goes so damn good on a hot summer day after cutting the grass, or with some good ol' Texas BBQ!

If I had to pick 2, #2 would be Arrogant Bastard Ale by Stone Brewing. If you've never had it, don't cheat yourself any longer! Try the Bastard.........if your worthy! (so the bottle says )

Cheers!
