I can't drink steel reserves, hurricane high gravity, or any of the high abv double malt beers anymore. just make me want to start dry heaving after any large enough swig they taste so foul.
For "normal" beer it's probably a six pack of Old Milwaukee Regular or Pabst Blue Ribbon. Both are about 5 dollars everywhere in the region i'm in and are mad pleasant to drink.
For "nice" beer sam adams is really consistently good. The "hopscape" product they just put out is awesome and I buy it whenever I can. If i'm at like a gas station and they don't have shit I just get Stella Artois or Blue moon though because I like the pleasant but interesting sort of flavor.
Near slaughtered siding in ausxtin there was a station selling leininkugel's grapefruit shandy for 75 cents a bottle for New Years. 75 gd cents! first time in my life I could afford to buy something tasty.
Ballast point, for instance, is terrific.. and so is the Belgian trappistes rockfort. They expensive af but worth it when yer feeling already like a pos spendthrift.
Anyway, Guinness for me. Don't care what anybody says.
I dont know about ya'll, but the first time I was in possession of Steel and orange juice at the same time was a fucking life changer. So.....yer telling me....I can still have the 8.1 % I love, without the barley-and-trash-juice-rotting-in-aluminum taste I hate?! Glorious.
If I had a choice though, it would probably be either Black Butte porter, Ninkasi Vanilla Oatis, or whoever does that awesome Almond Nut Brown ale. If Im drinking it to get drunk.....Steel or High Life.
Good question. I used to be a pbr guy but they seemed to have changed the recipe so I go with bush on a budget. Like a few folks said I can't do 211 or the rot gut stuff. My all time hands down fav is this brew called Loud House they brew here in NY. Its like santa cross dressing in your mouth. Ive heard the warm butter beer from harry potter is the shiz nittle bam, though.
i forgot to mention - if you love the taste of coconut, try Kona Brewing Company's: Koko Brown beer. It's a seasonal beer (I think they put it out in summer) that's brewed with real toasted coconut. You wouldn't ever think to pair coconut with beer but it's pretty damn good IMO. Maui brewing company also makes a coconut beer but I haven't tried it yet as it's a bit more expensive
There's a couple of local brews out here that are fucking amazing (when I can afford them!).
One Fifty Lashes Pale Ale, Stone & Wood Pacific Ale (this stuff is literally like nothing else), Boddies and there's a lager I can't recall the name of that Rock's Brewing in Sydney made that's just fucking lovely.
