I buy my favorite local beer, cheap but tasty, and full!!!
All about the craft-brew. I don't care about expensive or inexpensive. What I care about is quality. Nothing better than Dogfish Head or Bells these days!
i really like keystone light. it's not expensive so that's a plus but I like the taste of it.
My favorite beer is "Miller Chill". It is their new one in the green bottle. I just love it. It isn't as pricey as Corona but it does cost more than the other "Miller Genuine Draft Light" I use to buy. So I want my beer in a bottle and chilled on ice for a couple of hours before I start to drink. Then again I normally only drink 3 before I start to feel sleepy.... haha! but really there is something soothing about a icy cold beer, in the hot summer time.
I don't know anything about beer but kind of want it on "game night" with my boyfriend. Can anyone suggest a good beer that is smooth, and doesn't taste bad to someone who typically prefers yummy cocktails?
majority of beer taste like water to me. so it depends really what I want from it. since main reason of beer buying is for cooking and baking.
I hate both.
Full Sail Amber Ale. :) YUM.
Shonyjoe, have to agree about Stella Artois. It's one of the most vile beers around, and I can't believe it's even being imported to the US - it's Belgium's Budweiser. I enjoy white beers like Wieckse Witte or Hoegaarden, sweet and heavy Belgian triples like Rochefort Trappistes 8, or great bitters like Guiness. Microbreweries tend to have great tasting, artisan beers. I suppose those are the more expensive kind, although I wouldn't know the prices in the US.
I go for quality. Good beer is like good wine, it doesn't have to be expensive to be good and there are lots of good microbrews that are resonably priced. Pyrimid is my favorite by far!
I'll stick with my Portland Microbrews. Rouge Hefeweizen is the best ever!
Guinness, Sam Smith, Sierra Nevada, Pyramid, dos equis, and chimay are my favs.
I don't go by price but flavor. I mostly stick to Mexican beers - Corona & Tecate - so they are a bit more expensive than domestic beers. I have a soft spot for Guiness.
I'm somewhere in the middle. I can't stand cheap mass produced beer like Bud or Miller, but I can't really afford to spend more than $8 on a six-pack or get any of the really expensive singles that are $10+. Fortunately, there a lot of quality microbrews that sell for about $7 for a six-pack.
wasn't a beer drinker until i went to college and there the guys and gals opened my eyes to some really good beers. it doesn't matter about price, only QUALITY. i generally go for the microbrews like from Rockbottom (mmm San Diego Honey Ale), Karl Strauss (mmm Red Trolley), Humbdolt Brewing Company (drool) etc.
I don't drink beer, but I picked expensive since that's all we buy for my Husband. He's a beer-snob. He and and a few of his buddies made home-brew beer earlier this year, so we have four cases of that in our garage right now. He says it's just as good or better than a lot of the expensive stuff he usually buys. And it only ended up costing us about 20 bucks a case, which really isn't bad. We are currently washing and saving all the bottles so he can do another home-brew round later this year.
I don;t drink beer enough to warrant buying any for myself. But when my older nephew visits or I have other guests I go to BevMo and buy beers based on the description of their flavor and usually they're reasonable priced. My nephew loves German beers and Guinness Draught, I used to like Newcastle Ale and Pyramid Apricot Ale. But I've switched everyone from drinking beer to drinking High end, super strong Scrumpy (hard apple cider). During the first drink everyone claims the Scrumpy packs no punch, that its just really good apple juice. Then I make them wait for about 15 minutes after the finish the first before they can have a second and then they say the can fell the Scrumpy hard. Good hard cider from England or France packs a quiet and HUGE smackdown. Now all my friends and family are big fans of Scrumpy.
I'm more of a mircobrew girl than the cheap mass market thing, I got too much of that in college. I'll still drink it on occassion but I don't buy it.
Corona's and Coors Light for summer on the boat, but Sierra Nevada's the rest of the year!
I don't like drinking cheap beer but I will if it's whats there. I much prefer an IPA or especially Hefeweizen.
we usually have budlight on hand b/c it's always on saye, but i love corona, blue moon and alaskan amber too.
I'm not a big beer drinker, but I prefer imported dark beer. My favorite is Sapporo. My favorite amber brew is Pete's Wicked Ale in Strawberry Blond.
Expensive beer and PBR.
Depends who I'm buying it for. Hubby's friends just drink for the sake of drinking, so they get the cheap stuff because by the 8th beer they aren't going to know the difference. I get better, darker beers for my friends.
