Default favorite beer?




this thread is for waxing poetic about your favorite ale, lager, stout, porter, malt liquor, or any other beer-like substance.

it's probably been done before.

it'll probably be done again.

nevertheless.



one of my favorites is good old guinness, fresh from the tap. man i love to watch that buttery cascade. everything about this beer is good, even (or especially) the head. some beer, you just tolerate the head. with guinness, you appreciate it.

what is yours?

Should I dare ask:
What is the appropriate temperature to best enjoy a Guinness?

i'm sure someone knows the precise answer. i couldn't find it on guinness's website.

but i'm guessing it's something around just below room temperature, like most good beer should be served.

Q: Why do the British drink warm beer?

A: Because Lucas makes refrigerators.

Guinness is best when served at 48-50F IMO. And that's not warm, It's cool

Sy,
I don't think most here would appreciate that. You have to ride a triumph, I think.

Believe it or not, I have not tried a guiness! I will have to add it to the list.
When I'm in the "dark" mood, I like Becks.
Sam adams is good sometimes.

guinness is fairly distinct. there are only a few other mass-market beers like it out there. plenty of microbrews that are sortof similar though.

for my everyday, at-home beer, my favorite might be

RED HOOK ESB

...red hook also makes a number of other beer types - their IPA is good, and they make a coffee-flavored porter (i think it's a porter) that is really delishus.

I wanted to tell the Lucas joke, but I figured it was too obvious after asking the temperature question.

Becks is Ok, but I find it kind of chewy.

Stolichnaya, frozen, is my real preference.

should i start another thread for liquor?

gin is my favorite for mixing...haven't tried a lot of the fancy brands, so bombay sapphire is my standard. shaken with a ~8:1 gin:vermouth ratio, splash in a dash of angostura bitters, and 2 big olives. YUMALICIOUS. martini is my drink. and gin-n-tonic in the summertime is one of the great pleasures of life.

straight drinks - single malt scotch is great (Oban is currently on my shelf), johnny walker black is good, but when i go out to the bar sometimes i'll order a bushmills on the rocks.

vodka, i drink if there's none of the above. there's just not enough 'there' there. does provide a nice kick to the head though.
