I like variety but this has been a sort of regular for a while now:
To enter the site you have to say you are over 18 (click "Kyllä")
Then you can put another piece of wood in the fire (click "Heitä klapi").
2) I might grab a Guinness once in a while
etc.) , or something from smaller breweries around here, like Mallaskosken Kuohu or Laitilan Kukko.

1. Avery Majarajah Imperial IPA
2. Anchor Liberty Ale
3. Middle Ages Brewing Wailing Wench IPA (love the lable) http://middleagesbrewing.com/content/view/60/
5. Anything else from Belgium, too tough to pick just one!
Favorites change quite often but these are the ones I always seem to gravitate to in no particular order:
Rogue Dead Guy Ale
Bells Two Hearted Ale
Ok, I'll play...
I'm a 24 y/o male origionally from Arkansas now transplanted in California, and I like beer.
Rouge Hazlenut Brown
St. Peter's Cream Stout
Pyramid Imperial Heffewizen
#1 Fruity Beer
O' Fallon Wheach
#1 Seasonal Beer (Ale?)
O' Fallon Pumpkin Ale
I guess thats' 5, I can't rank them against one another though....
- If you are ever in St. Louis and you don't want Schlaffly or Budwiser take a drive west and go to O'Fallon for some really good beer.
- If you ever see a bottle of St. Peter's that looks pretty good and fresh, give it a try you'll probably like it.
- If you ever see a bottle of Pyramid Imperial hefewizen Buy it! You can either drink it or give me a call and I'll cover shipping and pay you double what you paid... Its that good.
...You might not be able to tomorrow

22 years old from Las Vegas, Nevada. Not home to any good microbrews. My top 5:
Left Hand Brewing Company Sawtooth Ale.
New Belgium Fat Tire (so cliche)
Flying Dog Pale Ale
New Belgium Mothership Wit
You can probably also tell I went to college in Colorado, so 4 of my top 5 are all from Colorado.

"Green green grass under my feet, but all I can think about is the dirt underneath" - DBT
Houston but likely moving to Denver in 6 weeks.
Top 5...tough call, but in no particular order:
Cottonwood Pumpkin Ale (tastes like pumpkin pie)
Rogue Hazelnut Brown Nectar
Odell Cuthroat Porter
Anderson Valley Oatmeal Stout
Left Hand Milk Stout
However, I find myself drinking Fat Tire and Shiner Bock the most...mostly due to availability/price.
Originally from New Orleans, LA., now living in Morgantown, WV. 37 y.o. male.
Wow, narrowing down to my top 5 was harder than I thought.
*Honorable mention to Church Brewery in Pittsburgh. Several great beers.

4. New Belgium 1554 (Ft Collins, CO)
3. Abita Turbo Dog (Abita Springs, LA)
2. Kwak (Belgium)
1. Maredsous 8 Dubbel (Belgium)
Chris, San Jose/Mountain View
1. Seabright Blur IPA
2. Speakeasy Double Daddy IPA
3. Red Stripe
4. Zywiec, PL
5. Tied House CPA (California Pale Ale)
From: Tampa, FL
TOP 5 Favorite Brews:
1. Tilburgs Dutch Brown Ale
2. Pumpkinhead Ale (Shipyard's seasonal brew)
3. Old Speckled Hen
4. Youngs Double Chocolate Stout
5. Newcastle (the old stand by when nothing else above is available)
I'm from Denver and the beer I drink the most is the microbrew that's on sale at the local liquor store. That "brand" is a tad inconsistant. My top 5:
1) Samuel Smith's Oatmeal Stout (long time favorite)
2) O'Dell's IPA (shooting up the charts like a rocket)
3) New Belgium Trippel Ale (another HIGH Alcohol content beer)
4) Paulaner Hefe (reminds me of good times in Munich beer gardens)
5) Guiness Stout- my Irish blood occasionally rises up and demands Guiness.
It's not in my top five but I'll give props to Dale's Pale Ale by Oskar Blues which has done away with the "is it better to go camping with good beers in bottles or bad beers in cans" quandry. Plus, they advertise a mountain bike brand right on the side of the can!
You know, for kids
Baton Rouge, LA here
I've had better than my current top 5 but my top 5 is what's currently available to me locally

Abita Jockamo IPA (not super hoppy and bitter like many other IPAs)
Pabst Blue Ribbon (only "cheap" bear I drink besides the occasional High Life)
Red Hook Copper Hook
disclaimer: I sell and repair bicycles
Curently from Seattle, WA
1 - Samuel Smith's Nut Brown Ale (England)
