    2.Sud Werks Davis Ca. All of their beers.

    Far from California.
    I like variety but this has been a sort of regular for a while now:
    1) http://www.karhu.fi/
    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.

    Ok, I'll play...
    I'm a 24 y/o male origionally from Arkansas now transplanted in California, and I like beer.

    #1 Brown
    Rouge Hazlenut Brown
    #1 Stout
    St. Peter's Cream Stout
    #1 Wheat
    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....
    Some advice:
    - 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.

    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
    Stella Artois

    You can probably also tell I went to college in Colorado, so 4 of my top 5 are all from Colorado.

    mmm...beer.

    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.

    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)
    http://beeradvocate.com/beer/profile/113/571/

    2) O'Dell's IPA (shooting up the charts like a rocket)
    http://beeradvocate.com/beer/profile/267/35626

    3) New Belgium Trippel Ale (another HIGH Alcohol content beer)
    http://beeradvocate.com/beer/profile/192/1054

    4) Paulaner Hefe (reminds me of good times in Munich beer gardens)
    http://beeradvocate.com/beer/profile/124/1256/

    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!
