Well, if you want to go a bit OT, how about using a girl's name for Saint Patrick?
Each and every year millions of Irish, Irish-ish and amateur alcoholics are needlessly distracted from their Holy Tradition of drinking themselves into a stupor in the name of Saint Patrick, a Roman Briton slave holding the dubious honour of bringing Christianity to an island that would use it as another convenient excuse to blatter the hell out of each other for centuries.

The source of this terrible distraction?

An onslaught of half-hearted, dyed-green references to St. Patrick's Day as St. Patty's Day.

It gnaws at them. It riles them up. It makes them want to fight… you know, more than usual.

IT'S PADDY, NOT PATTY. EVER.
...
Paddy is derived from the Irish, Pádraig, hence those mysterious, emerald double-Ds.

Patty is the diminutive of Patricia, or a burger, and just not something you call a fella.

Oops. Thanks for pointing that out sscritic.

I stand corrected here in front of God (and St. Patrick) and all Bogleheads as the grandson of two folks from County Claire who now asks for forgiveness. :oops:

Only read the first and last pages, but didn't see Victory Golden Monkey mentioned.

Golden Monkey is 9.5% ABV, I can usually get for $1.50/beer in a 6 pack with a coupon, and my favorite beer if I'm in for a long session with the guys is of course Yuengling I can get for $0.67/beer in a case (bottles). So when considering ABV, those two beers aren't that different in price. 1 Golden Monkey = 2 Yuenglings, roughly (ABV)

Golden Monkey is becoming my go to beer because I only need to drink 2 to be in the happy zone, and its pretty tasty too!!

A favorite this past winter was Sam Adams Winter Lager.

But my vote I guess would be Yuengling, its just so great in so many ways.

I don't drink a lot of beer so cost is not much of an issue. I prefer to drink micro brews and change it up frequently. If on travel drink something locally brewed I can't get at home.

It gets worse. A couple of years ago, when driving through New York state, I bought a 6-pack of Guinness at a supermarket. The label sported a prominent "Imported" so naturally I assumed that it came from Ireland. You can imagine how ripped off I felt when I got back home, read the label more carefully and discovered that the stuff was actually made at the Moosehead brewery in Saint John, New Brunswick, Canada :oops:

Just picked up six packs of some beers that I had never tried before: Founders Red's Rye, Victory Storm King Stout, and Unibroue Trois Pistoles. So far I've tried the Founders Red's Rye beer and it is now definitely one of my top 5 beers.

Never had Red's Rye, but the others are very good. Have you tried Unibroue's Tripel (La Fin du Monde) before? YUM!

On another note, I'm out in SF this week on vacation and went to Santa Rosa to check out Russian River and Lagunitas. Russian River didn't have a brewery tour, but they had some great food and Pliny the Elder (fresh as of 3/20) and Blind Pig on tap! Lagunitas had a nice little tour and some delicious brews on tap for a free tasting. Lagunitas is probably my favorite breweries since all their brews tend to be high (their "Kronik" beer is quite good, too) on hops.

Staying on topic, Victory Brewing Company is within commuting distance from Vanguard. Storm King is one of my spouse's favorites. Golden Monkey is a fairly decent Belgian style.

Beer is not very BH like. A true BH drinks <$20 per 1.75L vodka. Svedka is a good choice. I don't mix my vodka just lime and ice. If you use a mixer you can spend less.

I have been frequenting the high ABV beers of late. If you calculate the double or triple increase in ABV that ends up being similar price of lower ABV swill.

Here is one of the beers I have been enjoying lately: http://beeradvocate.com/beer/profile/345/8998

Does not taste like 12%.

Wherever I may be I love to try local beers. My favorite story related to this was when I was on a road trip with a buddy heading to Arkansas. We stopped somewhere in Missouri and I asked "if they had any local beers?". The answer (said with a nice southern drawl) was "yeah, Bud".

On our recent Spring Break trip to a very touristy area in Wisconsin we found ourselves in a family oriented restaurant which gets its beers from the brewery at it's sister restaurant in another part of town. After starting with a Honey Ale the waitress provided samples of the others and I went with the one she had labeled "hop".

Kilbourn Hop Ale
This medium-bodied amber ale has a pleasant hop flavor & aroma. Locally grown hops are harvested from Brownie Zinke's Hop Farm & are used to create this one-of-a-kind ale. (ABV 5.5%)

I love pale ales. Sierra Nevada and Lagunitas are some of my faves. Right now I am trying Full Sail pale ale for the first time and have to say...it is pretty good! Also, interesting to know...it is American and employee owned. The label says "12 fluid ounces of ridiculously tasty american pale ale concocted by our massive brewforce of 47."

These are 25.4 oz and at 12% would be equivalent of 6 "regular" beers. I am a big guy and one gets me where I want to be.

Someday I'll have to go through all of the posts and start to make a list. Until then I'll chime in with one of my personal favorites. Berghoff Sundown Dark. Looking online it has terrible reviews but I think the stuff is great.

Beer taste is so subjective I'd try to ignore the reviews. What helped me get started is figuring out the type of beer I enjoy most. For me it was IIPA and IPA, for you it might be Brown Ale since Berghoff's Sundown Dark is an American Brown. You can go here to view other American Brown Ale's. You won't know if it's a style you really like until you try it from a few other breweries. Once you find a style you like, there's plenty of different types to try.

$.02

I've personally tried Dogfish Head's Santo Marron and Indian Brown - they're delicious. Also , Sierra Nevada makes a good Brown called Tumbler, but it's usually a fall beer. Quite a few breweries make seasonal brown ales start in late August.

Since I started homebrewing, I have a taste for only the good beers. I prefer malty, hoppy beers with a high ABV. Arrogant Bastard Ale by Stone Brewing is a good example of what I like.

My current homebrews consist of a chocolate stout, an ESB, and a barley wine.

It's Boglehead Beer to me as it's quality over quantity, but I had Lagunitas' Summer Seasonal - Little Sumpin Sumpin' Ale (American Pale Wheat Ale) last night. It's absolutely delicious - could almost call it an IPA.

Get it while it lasts!

Bumping this old thread, but hey, it's about beer. Just about to start building a kegerator for my homebrew(s). Anybody else ever do anything like this? Several good guides on the web on how to do it, what mini-fridge to use, etc. And then, I start building my basement bar (hello mid-life crisis, better late than never).

I mostly drink hefeweisen and Berliner weisse; you can get good hefes (Weihenstephaner, Ayinger, Schneider Weisse, Franziskaner, etc.) for $2 - $4 for a half-liter bottle. The 1809 Berliner weisse that I like is between $7 and $8 for a half-liter bottle.

I don't believe anyone mentioned my favorite reliably obtainable brew, Sierra Nevada Pale Ale. Right now Sam Adams variety Harvest Brews are especially good. I don't particularly like their Summer brews except Porch Rocker. Also on hot days in the Summer, or beach beer, a Bud Light Lime is refreshing. For local micro brews anything made by Highlander Brewery in Asheville, NC is good. Their porter is especially good, or the oatmeal stout.

I'm a big fan of local microbrewies and am lucky to have two fairly new ones close by.

I had a Parish Brewing Company "Envie" American pale ale this morning before bed. They are located in Lafayette, LA and make wo different very tasty beers. They don't pasteurize their product so its a must to drink it fresh.

Tin Roof Brewing Co. is very close to me and they are also making some pretty good products, but they only can and keg their beer. They say it last longer and stays fresher in the cans. "Perfect Tin" amber ale is my favorite from them.

Pacifico. I don't like furry beers, like IPA's. 6.99-7.99/ sixpack.

If we ever move away from the coast, I'll go through withdrawal.

I like Abita Wheat, which is seasonal. Don't like fruit in my beer, so that can take some debate with whoever's serving.

Abita Wheat is a great summer time beer. How far from Louisiana are you buying it? I know Andy Gator, Turbodog, Purple Haze, and Amber make it pretty far these days, but am not so sure how far the seasonals get out of the state.

If you are ever in Abita Springs, LA, I recommend visiting the brewery for all the free beer you can drink. Just make sure you have a driver because its a definite two fist tour. (The tour guide told everyone to fill up a glass for each hand before our tour started). :sharebeer

Nice choices there. I've found that Franziskaner is known much more frequently than is Weihenstephaner when I'm talking about wheat beers with other folks. Both are good in bottles, but getting them on tap in their country of origin is so much nicer.

I found that my enjoyment of Franzis and Stephen led me to try Hoegaarden, which is a good Wit but not a huge draw for me. However, THAT led me to try both Leffe (braun and blonde) and Chimay. And THOSE got me to try Belgian style ale offered by Unibroue out of Quebec. All good stuff! I now have Leffe Brown in regular rotation.

On the other side of the hops aisle from these beers (which are not very bitter at all), I usually drink:

Dogfish 60 Minute
Victory Hop Devil
Victory Hop Wallop (Victory isn't far from Vanguard's corporate office)
Yards IPA

There are many good IPAs around and I can't possibly list all the ones I like (Torpedo, Stone, etc and so on).

I'm also a HUGE fan of Bud Light Lime!

Whatever beer is in my hand is my favorite. You know what they say, better to have a bottle in front of me than a frontal lobotomy.

I always enjoy a Negra Modelo.

When out of town, some local micro brew I would not get at home.

When home, whatever micro brew looks interesting.

I have no brand loyalty.

I tried to narrow down my favorite beers to a few thousand, but I just couldn't do it!
However, one of my favorites is "Polygamy Porter" from Salt Lake City.
Although I wasn't able to peg it as my all time favorite, its slogan is my all time favorite beer slogan:

The emergence of the Oktoberfest beers heralds the end of summer. Sigh.

Good thing I like Oktoberfest.

As far as the original topic, Yuengling definitely has my vote. It's an excellent lager that is fairly inexpensive. Their Black&Tan is also excellent.

Full disclosure: I grew up a stone's throw from the brewery so there may be some bias there.
