    I have many fav's

    Bud Light - Everyday drink of choice
    Belgian White - Stevens Point Brewery
    Boulevard Wheat.
    K - (english hard cider) expensive but 6.9% vol. Drinks like an apple juice kicks like a mad thing. added this link in case anyone is interested.

    Right now tho i am stuck on the Bud Light Lime ......... tooooo easy to drink [​IMG][​IMG]

    Edit - Forgot about, Tire Bite Ale - Flying Dog Brewery

    K cider anything like strongbow? I was in Manchester England last year and drank a few Strongbows and a few other ciders but I cant remember the names but they were very good.

    It is stronger than strongbow and i think the taste is smoother.... more refined. If you liked ciders, try out Woodchuck's Granny Smith, or Hornsbys Crisp Apple ciders. Both easily available around here.
    I can get K in a few stores around here but is $7.99 for 4 bottles.

    Did you get to try some Boddingtons too, that's a good beer [​IMG] !!!

    Before i'd moved here i was visiting for xmas, the then fiancee said she wanted to make the kids some hot cider for xmas. I was " WHAT ..... cider ....... hot ............ for the kids!!!!!!! She soon put me straight. And i went and bought some hard cider .......... she see why i was so shocked .

    Hey Tee I have had both of those other ciders and like them both. Also had a few Boddingtons over there and like them, had a few here before I went over there and they taste much better straight from the cask. My favorite from over there was Joseph Holt Bitter, ever had it? Also had some Unicorn and one called Bear *** that was good and several others that I dont remember the names of. I went to every small pub I walked by and tried to only drink real cask ales. The one thing I couldnt believe was at the football game all they had was Budwieser![​IMG] I really liked going to the old pubs over there and most all the people we meet were really nice to the "Yanks"[​IMG]
  6. didn't read all 25 pages so i'm not sure if this has been mentioned, but my favorite Bud Ice Lite...second choice would be bud light

    I haven't drank ciders in a while, but I really liked K. Woodchuck is awesome too. If you like Boddingtons, you'd probably like Tetleys English Ale too. It was really had to find in GA for a long time, but now a lot of package stores carry it, so maybe you can find it in your neck of the woods.

    Hey foust , had a few Tetleys in Manchester and they were ok but not one of my favorites. I have seen them around here before but have never got them.

    Glad you got treated well, the english can be a little indiffernt to "foriegners" sometimes, although that's mainly aimed at the europeans. There are some real good pubs over there with a lot of character.
    I lived southeast of London by 30 miles, had some real old pubs around that area. Some of the best ones were the ones out in the country. A lot of pubs were selling the cask ale .... or "real ale" as they'd started to be known as. Some had some very strange names too.

    Since moving here i do most of my drinking at home on the deck. Or at bowling nights [​IMG] .

    We went to one place called the Olde Wellington Inn, was built sometime in the 1500's! Really neat old building. Some of the pubs we were in were only 2 tables and a bar big enough for one person to get behind.

    We did learn our leason about which pubs to not go to. We went to a Man U football game and had our jerserys on and walked into a place that supported Manchester City by mistake, we figgured it out pretty quick![​IMG]

    it's not just a good's as i like to call it "mother's milk"!! when i couldn't get it when i first got to ohio, my parents used to bring me out a couple of cases when they would come to visit. now my base stocks it, so i couldn't be happier. plus it comes from the oldest brewery in america.
  14. Just bottled 10 gallons of Amber Ale. Should be ready in 3 weeks! My hefe-weizen is on tap now.

    If you get a chance, try Woodchuck's PEAR cider. It's simply amazing.

    Beautiful about being a Yeungling lover in Tampa is that it's brewed locally here... We get the freshest of the fresh!

    I was born and raised in PA not too far from Pottsville, PA...home of the original factory! My parents toured the factory 2 years back and got a couple cases right off the line. It was some of the best beer I'd ever had. So good it brought a tear to my eye, haha.

    dang !!! this thread has been going for a year !!! it appears to a newbie that ya'll like drinking as much as you like smoking !!!

    for me it's whatever is in the fridge, i like to try'em all. also like local homemade apple brandy for sipping and sauces. have to dilute it good before you get it near the fire though !!!!

  20. Very Interesting discussion here. See many different taste. I am personally on a belgium ale kick of all kinds. Mainly like different Tripples but also enjoy New Belgium's 1554.
    However at the moment just finished off a nice ribeye and am enjoying the remains of my 16yo Bushmills with a Hoyo De Monterey Excalibur. Smooth....
