    Virtually anything by Sam Adams. The only clunker they've ever made IMO is their Irish Red. Stick to Killians for that.

    I also like Beamish. It's Guiness-like, but with a little more flavor. They need to put in in a bottle (I've only ever seen cans).

    Worst beer: Red Stripe Light. Red Stripe is bad enough, but the Light is much worse.

    Re: Favorite Beers

    My Favorites
    1. Newcastle Brown Ale
    2. Sam Adams Octoberfest
    3. Lucky Bucket Lager
    4. St Benardous Abby 12
    5. Bud Light Wheat on a nice day if I plan to drink a bunch.
    Honorable mention: (Red Stripe (Red Stripe light is awful as said above), Smithwicks, Guiness Ex. Stout, Boulevard wheat & Modelo Negro)

    Many more great ones but who has time to cover them all.

    Re: Favorite Beers

    Agree on Sam Adams...but my all-time favorite beer that I just happened to try one time is Weihenstephaner Hefe Weissbier. I don't drink it often but I really like it.

    I do enjoy different types of beer...domestic though I have to go with Bud heavy.

    Re: Favorite Beers

    I like about any stout and there are too many to name. One in a while I'll head up to the Red Monk and get a trappist but I can't drink a lot of them.

    With that said, I love Fat Tire so I normally stick with those.

    For tailgating Coors Light or about anything else is fine.

    I hate white beer or whatever it's called (Blue Moon).
