    I love hops. At least until lately, so my favorite had been a relatively local one by Victory Brewing called HopWallop.

    But tonight I tried St. Bernardus (sp?) Abbey 12 and OMFG.

    OMFG means, "Oh my FUCKING GOD", this is good stuff.

    So, if you can get your hands on this one (and it's tough) try it. You will be shocked and amazed.

    In fact... pour it slow but at the end dump the rest of the bottle into a glass and take a big swig of the foam before it settles. You'll get a lot more of an idea of the flavor that way.

    You should expand this topic to be alcohol in general and combine it with the smoke shop. Some people aren't beer drinkers but have opinions on other types of alcohol.

    Yeah, or "Rec Room" or "Hedonistic Hideaway" or something.

    As far as store bought stuff Dos Equis is awesome. There's a brewery a block from my house that has a beer called Luhnie Kuhnie that is probably the best beer I've ever had though.

    Stella Artois. Lagers are probably the only thing I can stomach when it comes to beer; Ales make me barf. We have this foul beer here called XXXX Bitter and Victoria Bitter. They taste like dick cheese dissolved in goat's piss.

    I tried a Stella while on a dinner cruise on the Nile in Cairo, Egypt. Good times. It was the only beer I could get my hands on during my 3 weeks there so it was pretty good but otherwise I don't remember any specifics.

    My favorite beer ever is a craft ale called Resurrection. It has a deep reddish hue and they serve it in fancy glasses. I like to pretend I'm drinking blood when I have it. Here's a link to a better description: http://www.thebrewersart.com/housebeer.html

    It's an acquired taste!!

    But some people just don't like it I guess. Try some top end beers or if there's a brewery near you try some of those. Females tend to like brewery type beers I've noticed.

    The best beer I ever had, at this time, would have to be Molsons Canadian in Ontario. Its not a real 'ale' or nothing like that, but for a clean taste, that packs a wallup, its hands down the best. Until I can get over to Ireland and drink some real beers I am going with the Molsons. I drank a lot of 'local' brews while I was up there too, but can remember their name, for some reason I remember drinking a lot of them though...

    I just dont think drinking 'imported' beer in the US is the same. Cant be. I know the beer in Canada had a higher alcohol content, but they did it right. We have some 'high octane' ones in Ga, but they are nasty compared to the one from our brothers in the north. Hell drinking beer in the Casinos in Niagra Falls canada, then crossing the border and drinking beers is like eating a perfect steak at Harry Careys in Chicago, then picking up a Sirloin from the Waffle House.

    Margaritas are great, but you drink that other garbage but don't like the taste of beer? You're a strange one Ice.

    I like the beer thats ice cold and in my hand when I'm hot and dehydrated. Like when I used to do roofing and the boss would toss a tall boy up at the end of a long day. I'd guzzle it down and ask him to toss me another one. After the second one the buzz was already starting to hit. Thats when I would decide to focus my concentration on making it off the roof alive.

    It may sound silly I think it was normally bud light, but the fact is any beer can taste much better or much worse in the right circumstance.

    I'm that redneck guy at the bar who is just as likely to have a Bud as to have some import cause often times there is only about 2 cent worth of difference.

    I think all alcohol is disgusting and stinky and drunk people get on my nerves.
