    Best by far

    The best beer is the one someone else buys.

    I like Newcastle, Guiness and many others, but only one or two. These days I actually drink one glass of red wine, it's helping me with my figure.

    Anchor Steam

    Actually it's hard to say. I drink a few differnt things according to what I'm in the mood for, but Anchor Steam is kinda neat because it's just a little different than anything else out there. Quite flavorful. . .

    For the low carb lifestyle...

    I wondered how long it would be before the favorite beer question came up again. What has it been, two months since the last time?

    Well, since the last time it was posted, I jumped on the low carb bandwagon. The biggest sacrifice has truly been much reduced quantities (and quality) of beer I can drink. Whereas before I had no qualms about quaffing mass quantities of fine micros, or getting plowed on malt liquor, I'm reduced to the occasional...*gulp*...fizzy, yellow light beer. (Losing 30 lbs makes one do silly things, I've found, such as reprioritize weight loss over beer consumption.) However, that said, I've rapidly become an afficianado of all things yellow, fizzy and light. Bar none, Miller Lite is perhaps the king of all things light. Best taste for the calories (96), carbs (3.2g), and price (cheap). Sad but true. PBR, may ye rest in peace, brother.

    Wish I could find the link, but I read an article recently which was describing the alcohol/carb content of Guinness and suprisingly enough it's on par with that of many common *light* beers. Who knew?

    Anyway, I can't choose a single favorite for myself, but I've been digging the fruity summer brews lately. Bert Grant just came out with a mandarin hefeweizen that's excellent. Only problem is I got one six pack which is now gone (It lasted about a week, I'm a pretty moderate beer drinker.) and I haven't been able to find it again (Damn you Trader Joe's!). I did find a Buffalo Bill's Orange Blossom cream ale that was pretty tasty.

    Had a Stone IPA to accompany my dinner this evening...

    We have the same taste. If you get a chance try Bell's Two Hearted Ale and Three Floyds Alpha King. These are my favorites.

    Long Trail...

    I am not usually a fan of fruit beers but Long Trail Blackberry Wheat is the sh!t. It goes down so smoooth. Too bad it is only seasonal. Brewed near Killington, VT I can get it locally in the boston area.

    Belgian beers

    I have a bottle of Belgian Trippel (Huyghe Delerium Tremens) in the fridge waiting for me to get home from work. Anyone had that? And what about Ommegang (from NY State), they make Belgian styles too, right?

    since nobody has posted it... Red Tail Ale

    man, I miss the days when they sold 'em it in 750ml bottles and 3 for $5 at the local grocery in Santa Cruz...

    There's lots of excellent beers posted here!

    Gotta also throw in Abita TurboDog and Abita Amber, since these are among the best Louisiana micro brews.

    When was this? I'd get sixers of Red Tail in SC, but never 750 ml! What's that other beer by Mendocino that is really strong, Eye of the Hawk?

    I also like Newcastle draft, Heineken keg cans, Sam Adams Light, and the "Big Rock" at Our House in Allston, MA.

    HOMEBREW! the satisfaction of drinking beer you brewed is akin to the satisfaction of riding i bike that you built up yourself. or even fabricated (frame) yourself. you now exactly what it took to get to the end result. satisfaction guaranteed.

    Mountain Sun

    When in the Boulder area, it is a moral imperative for me to stop by the Mountain Sun (or the Southern Sun) to have their Java Porter! And, when lucky, it is on Nitro.

    The best beer that I have ever tried (over and over and over...)

    The best is....

    Magic Hat #9.... brewed in South Burlington, VT. It's best when you get a 1/2 gallon growler at the brewery (which is a mighty cool place, I might add).

    Beer FAQ?

    I'm seriously beginning to think we ought to have a beer FAQ, since this is discussed so often.

    Maybe it could be done as a sticky poll, so it would hover at the top of the list. Then again, I like the idea of having it right under the singlespeed info link--"Beer FAQ HERE! Please read this second!!"

    I like a nice clean hoppy tasting beer.

    Sierra Nevada
    Victory Hop Devil IPA
    Becks
    Heineken
    Yuengling Lager

    And then there's the one and only liguid bread

    Guinness

    I know it's not the popular choice, but if I can get a half keg a Heineken to share with some friends, it's heaven! Heineken is my answer.

    "Trying too hard" at what? When did a gargoyle holding a stein of brew become counter culture?

    I get the impression you're trying too hard with a screen name like "Bikehigh", come on get over yourself.

    Thanks for the answer. I appreciate it.

    As for my name, Diesel, I was given that name almost thirty years ago by one of my best friends. You can blame him for my name, but ... he's been dead for almost fifteen years now, so go eff yourself, poser.

    That's right, I said it, poseur!

    Arrogant Bastard Ale? I guess Guinness isn't good enough for some people. It may be good, but let's see where it is in 400 years.

    Edit: Sorry guys. I've had a few gin and tonics, Bombay fwiw, and am not suffering any fools.

    Please drink some more... maybe you will regain your sense of humor.

    I didn't realize my choice in beer had to be around for 400 years, I apologize.

    Yeah. What he said!

    Stone's brewsw are awesome.
    Don't get me wrong- as a former bike messenger, I've downed my share of PBR. But when I want to really enjoy a beer, it's usually a Stone product.

    But after just finishing a private tour (my riding buddy is good friends with one of the owners), I just have to say Stone Brewery rules. Samplings included: Levitation Ale (very nice flavor w/ low alcohol content - the drink all day beer!), Stone Pale Ale - good all-rounder, Smoked Porter Ale - very flavorful cocktail hour beer, IPA - just a plain good kick a SS beer, Arogant Basstard - just doesn't get any better unless it's a Smoked IPA (3/4 IPA with 1/4 Smoked Porter - wow, what a great combo).

    Topped off the tour with a purchase of a Smoked Porter Ale Growler 2 liters of bliss and refillable for $7 bucks!

    I must say, I never got the bikes-n-beer thing, and usually dismissed it as some sort of lame-o male bonding thing- I generally ride alone and have a Coke or Gatorade while underway, sometimes even the runoff from cooked noodles mixed with Tang. (Which, by the way, is a marvelous energy drink if you can get over the revolting texture and flavor of it.)
    Anyhow, I am in Germany right now and realized what a good thing beer is while riding, as long as your stomach is full enough that you don't feel the effects while riding.
    So- to the point. I generally drink a Franziskaner Hefeweizen Kristall while underway, or after I get back, sometimes a Franziskaner Hefe Dunkel.

    A good Hefeweizen is a top choice of mine too. I always enjoy trips to Gemany and Hefeweizens with lunch. Stone Brewery also has a distribution side and distributes a fine Hefeweizen by Paulaner.

    brewery tour...

    I went yesterday and although they were open and sampling, no tours were going on. I scored some schwag (ABA workshirt and a couple sets of pint glasses) and some Symposium Ale.

    Although their beer is tops, the brewery left a lot to be desired. But, who gives a sheeyat when the beer is that good!

    Agreed. Not a whole lot impressive with a bunch of stainless steel vats. The explanation of what they do to make the beer was good, though. There's also a lot more behind the main room you see from the tasting area.

    Mark your calendars - on June 14 they will release a special edition of their Imperial Russian Stout - mmm, mmm good!

    Maybe we just need a sticky thread to yak about Stone!

    I can't wait. I think it's been a year since I had one, but oh, what a beer! Well, I'm done with my coffee so it's time to go ride. Later on.

    Some of my favorites:
    Stella Artois
    Aventinus - truly the nectar of the gods!
    Hoegaarden
    Guinness
    Yeungling

    I'm sure there are a bazillion other excellent beers I have yet to get my paws on.

    Just started drinking Hoegaarden this week (and right now). Very good stuff. My favorite is Anchor Porter of SF. Also recommend Spaten Optimator, a dark brew. Friends who don't like Anchor Porter like the Optimator, which surprised me. Paulaner and Franziskaner Weiß beers are excellent too.

    My go to beer is Guinness.

    That's my version of miller lite.

    For a treat I will get founders breakfast stout, youngs chocolate stout, or rogue chocolate stout.

    Red Oak brewed in Whitsett, NC. Its an old style lager with a smooth and filling taste. Its brewed with no preservatives but they have been shipping it throughout NC. If you are ever in the area be sure to grab a Red Oak or one of the other beers they brew. Ive been to the brew weekly brew tour they offer more than a few times and talked with most of the brewers and the brewmaster all really cool people with a genuine passion for brewing great beer!

    fat tire

    I love fat tire and i live in CT my biggest complaint is you can't buy it in the area, NE brewers are "protected" as the states dont import most of the west coast beer
