I dig Fat Tire. There's also a brew out of C-Springs called Beehive that is really good. And I'll go for a Modellos any time.

A lot of the "popular" brands are swill. My .02.

I'd chip into that pot, too ... for Bells (Two Hearted and Third Coast) and Three Floyds (Alpha King, Dreadnaught, etc.) ... and maybe even some New Glarus (WI) Raspberry Tart!

These can't be put into any particular order:
Magic Hat #9
Yuengling Lager
Big Sky Moose Drool
Sam Adams Octoberfest
O'dells 5 Barrel

Bud's American Ale is surprisingly tasty too.

Alright. Not to threadjack or anything but I just did some online research and I may have to correct myself. It almost sounds like the Sandlot may be like an R&D or something for Coors. I'm not 100% sure this was formerly an independent microbrewery.

"Blue Moon, a Belgian-Style white beer brewed by the Molson Coors Brewing Company, was launched in 1995. Originally called Bellyslide Belgian White, it was created by Keith Villa, a brewmaster at Coors Field's Sandlot Brewery (the onsite brewery owned by the Molson Coors Brewing Company)."

Anybody know the real history here? Was this always owned by Coors?

At any rate, I still think it's one of the best out there. And I've tried a lot of different beers.

I don't want to start a pissing match, but for some reason, I have always hated blue moon. I actually think it is one of the most overrated beers out there doesn't taste anything it should taste like (for a Belgian white). Give me a Hoegaarden or a Mothership Wit...

Add to the Michigan folks, anyone from Missouri, as I buy the Two Hearted and Cherry Stout every year at Whole Foods in St. Louis. Bell's beer rocks. They are one of my top five breweries in the US.

My Top 5:

1) New Belgium Fat Tire
2) Heiniken
3) St Pauli Girl
4) Whatever is cheapest at the store
5) Whatever is in the refrigerator regardless of how old it is.

No problem here. I have a Blue Moon and a Mothership Wit in the fridge. I may have to do a comparison tonight. :D I'm fresh out of Hoegaarden but do think it is also a fine tasting beer!

Many of the ones listed above. I have been drinking a lot of Sam Adams Winter Ale and Boston Lager
I'm thirsty right now, as a matter of fact.


There is a lot to be said to this... especially, I agree. With that said, I must say that I lament the fact that I go through phases where I think I've found "the one" only to buy another 6 of the same and wonder why I thought it was "the one". My tastes change from season to season, month to month... now, with that said... in no particular order

Edelweiss Hefetrub - can't get it here
Franziskaner - Weisse in the big bottle
90 Shilling
Sam Adams - Cream Stout
2 Below
5 Barrel Pale Ale
Guiness
Pabst in a can

Magic Hat #9
Skullsplitter
New Belgium 1554... Ok, I've edited several times because I keep seeing what others post and like a Homer Simpson say, "Ummm, 1554!"
