BEER

Ok the Prudential Center being whored out to the likes of Budweiser has inspired me to start a thread discussing your favorite beers. Yes, I suppose I am a beer snob....I dont think there is anything wrong with liking beer that does not taste like goat urine.

Here are some of my favorites:

I guess I'm wondering if the beer discussion can be held without the picfest. This is NJDevs, not the menu board at McDonald's.

Good beer is for the rich. I am cheap so at teh bar Miller High LIfe. At home mostly Black Label. When I come back from PA I get teh Yuengling Lord Chesterfield. During hockey season I will get Labat's.

I also like getting the Ballentines Bottles because they have the fancy puzzles under the cap.

Its more about what you like to spend your money on..Id rather pay an extra 3 dollars for a six pack of good beer than drink 'fast brewed' garbage that isnt even really beer

That Rogue is good stuff, TD. Reno has a couple of beer-centric events every year, and the crew from Newport almost always makes the trip. Like I said, good stuff, although I much prefer the ale on tap than in a bottle.

Barring that, give me a Stella Artois or a Sierra Nevada Pale Ale.

Quantity over quality is my theory. I used to be a beer snob. Every so often I treat myself to a good beer. ONe of my favorites that will be coming out soon again is teh Dogfish Head Punkin Ale. I am also a big fan of Christmas beers SAmuel Smith's being my favorite.

Have you ever had teh Samuel Smiths? It isn't like the crap ones the Sam Adams makes. Sierra Nevada's Celebration Ale used to be fantastic but they have changed it recently and it isn't nearly as high in alcohol content. Glad to see you are the judge of who is a beer snob or not but in my days I pretty much only drank Belgium and English beers. Eh, I am happy with my Black Label these days.

Well I was just poking fun at my own beer snobbery.

But I just dont like beers that have cinnamon and spice and everything nice and all that in them.

I prefer just hoppy normal beers, or really good stouts.

That Weyerbacher stout is really good, but the Brooklyn Black Chocolate stout is my favorite

And that said, I still will drink Miller lite when a) im golfing and its hot out or b) I am really broke

Yeah the Samuel Smiths doesn't have all that spice you find in a lot of US micro brew christmas ales.

Yeah that Brooklyn black stout is pretty awesome.

I like to drink too much to be able to afford to always drink good beer.

Give me a Yuengling and I'm set.

I do like Miller in terms of cheap beer.

The two I would say you must try are :

Arrogant Bastard - this beer is just amazingly good.

Rogue Juniper Ale - Its got a faint junipe berry taste that makes it extremely refreshing, while getting you extremely drunk

If you like Stouts....Do the Brooklyn Black Chocolate, but its seasonal so youll have to wait til fall
