    I read that thread about mixed drinks and thought it was rather interesting to see the different tastes that the various forum people had. However, mixers aren't really my thing, so I thought I'd see what kinda beers, stouts, lagers, bitteres and ales people enjoy - the more wierd and wonderful, the better!

    For a kick off, I'm a lager man myself, generally one of the more well known brands; Fosters, Carlsberg etc. but when the fancy takes me, I do enjoy a bit of Newcastle Brown Ale .

    So what do you people like to drink then?

    You just lost The Game!

    Way... way too many specs to list.
    I like Newcastle, when I'm in the UK. The clear glass bottles tend to skunk it, so I don't buy it here in the US

    I'd like me a nice bitter too, also sadly not overly available here.

    Guinness
    Heineken
    Stella Artois

    In that order. I also enjoy stuff like Grolsch, Ricard's Red, and other imported beers. I love dark beer.

    I picked up a bottle of Crown Royal and some Bacardi Razz for the wife tonight.

    I lean toward the Lagers myself, can't stand any kind of Porter. My personal favorite at this point is Samuel Adams Summer Ale, but I enjoy just about anything by Sam Adams. Guiness rates pretty high with me as does a local favorite, Yuengling Lager (from America's oldest brewery, here in Pennsylvania).
    Liquid and computers don't mix. It might seem simple, but we see an incredible amount of people post here about spills. Keep drinks and other liquids away from your expensive electronics!

    Call me simple, but I prefer to live the "high-life" - yes it must be from a glass bottle. Okay, I'll admit, when I'm feeling Hoity-Toity, I prefer Schneider-Weisse -- of course it must be in a S-W beer glass and poured by myself especially if the barkeep doesn't know how to properly pour.

    I've enjoyed all but one Sierra Nevada I've had (the harvest in the blue label I could not stand). I also love Stone Brewery's ale's (arrogant ale and their IPA).

    Oh, and I absolutely hate Guinness

    I really don't like Sam Adams, too bitter for my tastes. I do, however, like Yuengling

    The beer i drink mostly would be Carling... But when I'm in the mood an ale, preferably Hob Goblin goes down nicely. More fond of the darker ales usually

    Heineken would be my favorite, light and sweet and not too bitter. Stella Artois is nice too.

    Like to try beer from other country, though they are not as nice, such as Tsingtao from China, and Chang or Singha from Thailand. We have quite a lot of them here.

    Heard Corona is pretty nice.

    I love Yeungling, like Budweiser, Sam Adams Summer Ale, Sam Adams Cherry Wheat, & Stella Artois.

    To be honest though, I will basically drink whatever is on special/put in front of me. $.50 Natural Light drafts = my drink of choice for the night

    Beer ..... now we are talking serious stuff ....

    Choosing 1 would be difficult as I am living in Belgium, with over 200 types of local beer.

    All time favorites are
    - Duvel
    - Hoegaerden
    - Grimbergen
    - Rodenbach
    - Jupiler
    - Stella

    Cheers.
