Though I've cut back on drinking considerably, mine are:

Harpoon IPA (very "heavy" - an acquired taste, for sure)

Natty Daddy ($1.00 for a 25 oz can at 8%... decent bang for the buck)

Haffenreffer 40 oz (very skunky, but something I've grown accustomed to)

Kirin IchiBan (something I picked up in my travels - a lil pricey, but surprisingly smooth)

and when all else fails:

Budwiser

I tend to drink top shelf whiskey, cognac, and wines but once in a while of have beer.

I am not sure what order I would put these but here is, almost 5

I like bud light platinum; perhaps itís the cool blue bottle or the fact itís double the alcohol, but it tastes good to me.

Lost Coast Great White is another I like

I pretty much canít stand Guinness; but I love it in an Irish Car Bomb.

I have enjoyed a Blue Moon on occasion

And for the fifth I am not sure, anything from Switzerland or Germany (drank beer at both places FYI), because American beers are like having sex in a canoe.

Ah! a fellow traveller \:\) nice.

I haven't been to either country (more into the Asia / south pacific neck of the woods - hailing from CT) - which of the two would you recommend and why?

Well since they are close to each other I would say go to both. And since I really only had half a day in Germany since it was the end of the tour, by saying I liked Switzerland better was only because I had more time there. It was nice to have a beer and a Big Mac at McDonalds in Germany though.

If you are able to get your hands on some Stone & Wood - Pacific Ale , It is amazing! My favourite beer.

It's really fruity and great for Summer.

It's made in Byron Bay, but I imagine it might be available over there.

Definitely recommend.

1. Old Rasputin Imperial Stout
2. Stone's Imperial Stout
3. Samuel Smith's Organic Chocolate Stout
4. Smithwick's
5. Dundee Honey Brown
-------------------------------------
Honey Brown was my first beer, but I quickly moved on to deeper and darker things. I prefer a nice imperial stout that pours thick like motor oil.

I gotta append my list. Just tried Avery Brewing's Mephistopheles stout. Yeah, how stereotypical...

This stuff is AMAZING. 15.9% APV, and it tastes every bit as diabolically good as it's name makes it out to be.

It's a bit pricey, at $8 for a 12 oz-ish bottle... But it's worth the experience if you fancy yourself any sort of beer person. Do pay attention to the bottling date, though. The older the better with this one.

If you're not concerned with being stereotyped, I recommend Maudite, a Belgian-style strong ale brewed by Unibroue Chambly, here in Canada. Its 8 per cent, dark red in colour, and goes very well with spicy food.

Google it, and you'll see right away what I mean about stereotypes. The name and label were inspired by the French-Canadian legend of the chasse-galerie, in which a group of vayageurs make a deal with the Devil to allow their canoe to fly through the night sky. I use one of the large corked bottles for decoration on my shrine.

Everything Unibroue Chambly produces is good, but Maudite is my favourite.

Keep in mind that beer should really be treated like food. It should be consumed as close to it's manufacture date as possible - usually within two weeks.

I personally prefer locally made with a high alcohol content. If you find yourself in MD (especially around Baltimore) try:

Resurrection from The Brewer's Art a brown Trappist style ale with 7% ABV.

Rye-Baby a rye IPA from Union Craft Brewing - 6.5% ABV.

Also from Union Craft Brewing, Double Duckpin. A very hoppy IPA at 8.5% ABV. Brace yourself. Try the 64oz growler, stand on the corner, and pour some out for your hipster homies that couldn't be there.

Not true. This only applies to pilsner beers. Other beers like trappist, Lambic, ales and stouts are preferably consumed after "riping" a few months/year.

Seconding what Dimitri said.

I've had more than a few brews get better with time.
Dragon's Milk Bourbon Stout is a prime example. Too young and it's acrid as hell. Year under it's belt and it's amazing.

In this particular case I will defer to your expertise. In fact, I actually had to look this up. Many will keep in a wine cellar for 10-20 years. I was actually astonished. Those Belgians know a thing or two about good brew.

There's a time and place for everything but weizenbocks are my favorite, specially Weihenstephaners. Satan bless the Reinheitsgebot.
But whatever works for the drinker.

So true !
Although I am not a drinker, I do like it (a lot !!!)
So on the very rare occasions I do indulge in alcohol, I go for the beer called Chimay Grand Reserve (the blue bottles) the name Grand Reserve points to the fact of it's long shelf life.

My trick to get the "best" ones is to pick the ones with dust on the bottles, which are obvious been on the shelves a while.
The tastes is indeed better to the ones freshly out of the factory.

And yes these beers are made in a monetary by monks, the ironie.

I used to drink beer when I was younger but I developed a sensitivity to it and it so stopped. Which sucks sometimes in the middle of summer when someone is having a coldie and you can smell it. Yum! I have since found though, that I can tolerate a couple of low carb ones, but hey, just easier to drink something else.

I was never that fussy with them, but I think my fave of all was this home made stout that one of my ex father inlaws made. It tasted really strong.

It makes me cringe a little when I hear that some countries drink their beer warm... But when you think about it they are cold countries and their were no fridges when it was invented anyway. It would probably give you a buzz faster?

I understand you, might sound idiotic, but I don't get why people drink warm beer. I mean, I know that, when you drink warm beer, you experience full taste of the beer, but since let's say its summer and you need something cold, you grab a beer.

For me, it all doesnt matter, if its -40 outside, I will still drink some beer if I want it \:D

Franziskaner Hefe (Bavarian beer)
Modelo w/lime (my favorite breakfast beer)
Warsteiner Dunkel (dark and German)
Moretti Amber (Italian and delicious)
Kronenbourg (yummy Belgian Wheat)

If and when I drink beer, there's only 3 I will touch. If I can't get Guinness, then it's Heineken, and if I can't get Heineken, then it's Corona.

Other than that, I prefer Muscadine wine.

Hang on a minute...............haven't I just read that you can see no reason for using drugs??.....or was that someone else?

So how many times have you pulled bodies out of car wrecks because they were pissed out of their heads?

For once I agree with Dimitri, it's the user not the used; some people can moderate & some can't; & some people are just in the wrong place at the wrong time.

Basically wheat beer. I don't really want to refer to any specific brand but, you should taste Chimay.
