I am stuck in China for the foreseeable future. Thus I am stuck drinking Chinese beer. Mostly Tsingtao (pronounced ching-dow) This barely drinkable swill has 3.5% alcohol and almost as much formaldehyde.
I will admit that on sweltering days...of which there are many...I drink it down with the best of them. Really makes me miss my Portland, OR home beers. I would swim through a river of fried rice to get my hands on a Mirrorpond Pale Ale right now.
So, drink up and enjoy guys...im stuck in microbrew purgatory!

In no order as beer tastes change with the season.
Surly Coffee Bender: cool weather, a nice in between brown/ porter; not quite porter, definitely not brown and just the right amount of coffee.
Sam Smith Oatmeal Stout: cool weather, I loves me some Tadcaster brew. I like'em all but this is best!
Surly Bitter Brewer: warm weather session beer, British style pub ale.
21st Amendment Hell or High Watermelon Wheat beer: hot weather, just try it on a hot day, major thirst quencher with a hint of watermelon.
Rogue Imperial Pilsner: Not for a hot day, sweet floral sippin nectar. Lovely to share with the wife watching the sun set over the woods or the lake.
Too many honorable mentions to mention.
Personally, IMHO the best beer in the world is brewed in the states. Top 5:
Victory Hop Devil
Tröegs Nugget Nectar
Dogfish Head 60 Min IPA
Yards Tavern Ale
Yuengling Black N Tan - always good!
If anyone ever gets the chance to taste Hövels or Duckstein, do it. Most only available in Europe though but worthy of mention on this list.
