    My beer of choice is Newcastle. I think it is simply the tastiest beer ever. The problem is, around here, it's somewhat hard to find. It's absolutely best out of a keg (the canned Newcastle is horrible and the bottles aren't much better), but restaraunts don't like to offer it because it is expensive, so they have to put a hefty price tag on it, thus not many people buy it.

    Their Ice was very good IMO. It was likely 10-15 years ago however when I was drinking it. Very clean tasting. A man's taste evolves as he travels down life's path... I might not like it today. I was drinking Coors Light prior to Labatts Ice. I exclusively drink dark beers now.

    I will share my philosophy, "Life is too short for cheap beer"!

    I am sitting down with a Shiner Bock at the moment, my all around favorite daily drinker, won't put up details since olbriar already did.

    Newcastle is another favorite, and very similar to Shiner Bock, a little lighter and sweeter tasting, and available in a "mini-draught" for $20.00!:D

    Red Hook ESB is also on my list.

    As for some of my local favorites:

    Stash IPA
    IPA
    Independence Brewing, Austin, TX
    $9 a 4 pack

    Fireman's 4
    American Blonde Ale
    Real Ale Brewing Co. Blanco, TX
    $8-9 a 6 pack

    I will post more as the fog clears from my beer deprived brain.;):D

    EDIT: Thought I have to admit, due to my early college endeavors, I have developed a taste for Natrual Light. :x :cheers:

    Newcastle is pretty good, but I don't understand why they put it in clear bottles. (a cardinal sin in the beer world)

    Someone mentioned mass produced beers earlier and I would throw Newcastle in there. It has a pretty smooth taste from what I remember.

    I must update my post about Shiner Bock beer. They just increased their prices and now a case cost $28. Not that the increase will change my rate of consumption...

    Have you tried any of the new DC regional breweries stuff yet?
    DC Brau is pretty solid. Lost Rhino (VA) is great. If you live near Falls Church, definitely get to Mad Fox. Great beer and great food. One of the best brewpubs I've been to.

    Chocolate City, Port City and 3 Stars are another few locals. Their stuff is okay, they need time.
    Stillwater is probably my favorite local (MD). They make mostly saisons, great Belgian style beers.

    Mmmm.... I buy the 90 and 60 minute down here and love them both. Really really amazing beer. GA has some archaic beer alcohol-content laws so I won't be getting 120 anytime soon...sigh

    We just passed Sunday sales in the last 6 months. We have something like a 12% max alcohol content for beer....yet we can buy golden grain 190 proof liquor. :thinking:
