    Do you drink light beer? .. if so you are in sin.

    Redeem yourself by picking up a nice pale ale, amber or dark beer. Drink and enjoy

    We are very fortunate here in Seattle,

    Mannies Pale ale - top of my list
    Red hook - pretty good
    Mac n Jack! the Snizit!

    Like Guiness... but only WARM at room temp.

    Whats your favorite beer? and what is your 20?

    Clear Creek Pale Ale at Silver City Brewery in Silverdale, Wa is pretty damn good. :beer: :beer:

    Your correct about the Seattle area being fortunate, almost too many micros to choose from.

    I'm in Norman OK, soon to be Moore, OK.

    I prefer a nice Porter; I like the Bully! or the Sierra Nevada if I crave the extra hops. I am also a sucker for a good American Lager, such as a Shiner Blonde or a nice Bouldevard wheat also works on the summer day.

    Let's be honest, I've even been known to pick up a case or two of good old 6 pt Budweiser when I have gone south to Texas. I am still a sucker for regular Bud (over MGD or Coors) on a nice warm day.

    Come winter, it's all Sierra Celebration Ale or my new fave winter warmer, the Anchor winter brew :)

    Overall, I have no one favorite.

    The Hefeweizen on tap at the Spitfire Grill in Santa Monica Airport. For the life of me I can't remember who brews it. What's that say? :beer: But I'll be there in three weeks.

    I dont think Yeungling is available out west! Good stuff but it just hit the deep south about 2 years ago. Mine is Rolling Rock....I also drink Miller Lite in can (no glass recycleing in my area).

    Nothing wrong with some bud light. I am living on a college budget though. But if I had the money to be buying whatever I wanted I'm a big fan of Abita Purple Haze. Its a raspberyy wheat good stuff.

    Whatever I fancy at that moment. Could be a fat tire,MBL, loft, white buffalo, high life, red lady, hazed and infused, miller light, ellies brown, At least that's a sample of what's in the fridge right now (oh yeah someone brought over some killians :rolleyes: ) Mohito's and mint julips also get intermingled have taken over from margs and now rule the summer esp with home grown mint :D :beer:

    Not a fan of yeungling or lagers :whoops:

    If you're not gonna drink good beer, why drink it at all?

    For good beers I like Anchor, Capital Brewing Co., New Glarus, and I love the trappist ales from Belgium such as Chimay.

    FOr the "having around the house in case people show up beer" I keep Leinenkugel's around. Leinie's Honey Weiss is good, but in the summer the Berry Weiss goes down cold and smooth.

    Only one college student replied. Well since I'm in college I've been drinking keystone light. It's cheap and comes in a dirty 30 in some places. Favorite beer probably has got to be Shiner, but I never drink it since I'm usually drinking at parties that supply with keystone. Been known to throw back Tecate, Dos Equis.

    I work up and down the west coast, utah,and over to colorado. Widmer Heff is a safe bet to find. But home brew is the best, unless you have to get up before noon the next day. I make it a little strong :beer:
