    Re: Favorite Beer

    I'm late to a beer thread! Damn! My only excuse is, I was out buying more beer. Since I'm an indiscriminate drinker, My fav beers in order:

    1. Any beer at the ballpark
    2. Cold
    3. Free

    "...You just have a wider lens than one game."
    --Former Reds GM Wayne Krivsky, on why he didn't fly Josh Hamilton to Colorado for one game.

    "...its money well-spent. Don't screw around with your freedom."
    --Roy Tucker, on why you need to lawyer up when you find yourself swimming with sharks.

    Where were you at the last Redszone Gathering? Chip and I would have made you a member of the union. Membership dues are cheap!

    While I'm showing my age again, but when I was younger, single, and econonically-challenged, I always bought "longnecks" that came in those returnable cardboard cases w/ the flaps. I wasn't too particular back then either... Hamms, Strohs, Budweiser, Rolling Rock, Schoenling, Hudepohl, Blatz. I stayed clear of Carling Black Label and Pabst though.

    Anymore I like to try various microbrewery beers. Plus I have a couple friends that make their own, and have been for quite some time, and it's pretty darn good. It's all in the technic and experience. They make both a light and dark beer, so whenever they make a new "batch" I place an order.

    A former roommate turned me onto Anchor Steam. Been a huge fan ever since. Their Liberty Ale is excellent as well



    Kiltlifter is a Phoenix area brewed - a fantastic Scottish Ale. If you ever get a chance to sample it, don't miss out.
    There is a kilt lifter brewed out here in my area at a place called Moylans it is really good and big.
    My favorite beer is the beer that I make in my garage and right now I am enjoying my seasonal pumpkin ale, it's quite tastey. If I had to buy beer I would go with Sierra Nevada or Lagunitas IPA I am quite the hop head.

    You'll never go back to that over carbonated junk. Even A&W and Frosty is not like it use to be anymore.

    It's making a comeback too. I'm starting to find it more and more around Ohio. They are based out of Columbus, Ohio, and you can still get it.

    Go to Jungle Jim's on Route 4 right down the road from you. If someone brews it they probably have it. I bought some Michael Shea's there last month...decent stuff.

    Michael Sheas is made by High Falls (I think thats what they call it) - the "high end" name for Genessee Brewery - Rochester, NY.

    If you went to college in Western-Central, NY you probably woke up after a night of drinking Genny Cream Ale with a case of the Genny Screamers.

    Micahel Sheas is good stuff though.
    Nothing to see here. Please disperse.

    I was drinking PBR pretty regularly in law school because a) you could get a case of bottles at the Wasson Avenue drive-in for $12, and b) they had pints of it at R.P. McMurphy's in Oakley for $1.50, and I lived half a mile away.

    For my taste, nothing beats a smooth pint of Guinness, but it seems like the quality of brew you get varies widely geographically and among bars (and maybe I just bought into the hype, but it does seem to taste better in Ireland, and it also seems to taste better in Irish pubs in the States--I have no earthly idea why.)

    When I lived in Britain, I was obsessed with Tetley's, which you can also get at the Pub in Rookwood and at Nicholson's downtown. If you like bitters, try a pint sometime, you won't regret it. I found the most popular European beers, like Stella Artois, Heineken and Kronenbourg to be somewhat overrated.

    I don't know a whole lot about Microbrews, but two regional breweries that produce a uniformly good beer are New Belgium (Fat Tire, etc. from Fort Collins, Colorado) and Great Lakes Brewing. The many varieties of Christian Moerlein are also fabulous, and you can eat an enormous German meal in a mansion owned by the brewer's family in Cincinnati (Lenhardt's Restaurant on McMillan near UC).

    Despite all the above, if I had to drink only one beer for the rest of my life (and obviously I mean an unlimited supply of one type of beer, not one beer period, I'd have to kill myself) it would be Pilsner Urquell.

    In all seriousness, I agree completely.

    Wow! I never knew that. Thanks for that tidbit.
    What if this wasn't a rhetorical question?

    All models are wrong. Some of them are useful.

    If you haven't been there, I highly recommend paying a visit to the Czech Republic. Travel around Bohemia and try some of the local brews. Towns like Pilsen and Cesky Budovice (Budweis) are great places to throw down a few beers. And Prague has a couple of good local breweries as well.

    Ack! My recollection was somewhat flawed:

    "The restaurant's history is intriguing. Here's the short version: Some Lenhardts came to America from Yugoslavia in the 1950s and opened a restaurant. In 1965, the restaurant moved to 151 W. McMillan, formerly the Moerlein mansion, where it's been ever since. The mansion has a colorful past. Built as a wedding present for beer-maker Christian Moerlein's daughter (sure beats a blender), the house later did time as a doctor's office, an army barracks, a fraternity house and a private club. The original Lenhardts' granddaughter, Christine Windholtz, is now driving the business, bringing third-generation savvy to the operation by opening an underground rathskeller -- called Christy's in 1991 -- and a beer garden in 1998."

    Re: Favorite Beer

    Has anyone tried Bell's from Kalamazoo - I like their Oberon Ale the best ( a summer wheat ale)
    For widely available beer in the upper third, Canadian beer is better and costs the same, with Molson my favorite.
    For European imports, I think Bavarian beer like Paulaner is my favorite.

    Cheap beer: Definitely Rolling Rock, hands down, very underated.

    Non Cheap Beer: Sam Adams, Red Stripe, Dinkel Acker Pils
    Thank goodness for baseball.
