    I'm sure this thread has been done, but let's break in the new food forum the right way.

    1. Abita Turbo Dog- a biased pick, but I love Abita even more now that I've moved away from Louisiana.

    2. Boulevard Wheat- If you're ever around these parts (Kansas City), you should try this local brew. Very smooth. Get it with a lemon, and it tastes even better.

    3. Killian's

    4. Corona- It's carried by every restaurant, and you can't go wrong with this.

    Dude, how can you drink Michelob Ultra. There is not much difference between Ultra and the Baton Rouge tap water.

    I'll go along with you on the Heineken and St. Pauli Girl. I also like Becks and Killians. Pilsen Urquell and Hofbrau are also excellent.

    The name of my favorite beer? Free and cold.

    Anybody ever heard of or tried Boag's? I sometimes communicate on IMs with an Australian guy who is in the same business as me. A couple of years ago he moved from near Sydney to Tasmania. He has told me that a Tasmanian beer called Boag's is the best he ever tasted. I haven't been able to find it locally. I haven't been in the Chimes for a while. Maybe they have it or know of it.

    I've never heard of Boag's, Bengal. I just checked it out online and most every place I went to had very high marks for the brew though.

    Hear hear, that's a GOOD place to start!!!

    My 5 favs:

    El Toro IPA, Morgan Hill, CA (I know the brewer)
    El Toro Poppy Jasper, same
    Moylan's Double IPA, Novato, CA
    Stoddard's Kolsch Ale, Sunnyvale, CA (brewer is a friend)
    Boont Amber, Anderson Valley Brewing, Boonville, CA
    Rogue Hazelnut, Newport, OR (bonus beer)

    This is one of the very important reasons why I live here!!!!
    There are so many that I CAN'T FIT on this short list.....
    PS brewers are good to have as friends....:)

    Of the big boys:

    Guinness
    Bass
    (you can put them together for a black and tan)
    Coors Light (good for a lite beer)
    Newcastle Brown
    Anchor Liberty Ale
    Red Hook ESB (bonus beer)

    But at the risk of sounding like a beer snob, I am not one.
    I STILL believe in FREE COLD BEER. :D

    ******I FEAR NO BEER******

    You should never mix Guinness, and Bass. The Irish and English do not get along. Instead substitute Harp Lager for the Bass. Two great Irish beers...ummm yummy!!!

    Those names sound like gay liberal San Francisco beers.

    Do straight guys in Frisco always wear loafers so that they don't take the risk of having to bend over to tie a shoelace?
