    My favorite beer of all times has to be Sam Smith Oatmeal Stout. A meal in a bottle. Trappist Dubbel is a strong 2nd. If you're looking for reasonably priced good beer, give about anything by Great Lakes Brewery a shot. Dortmunder Gold, Commodore Perry, Burning River, all very good. Spirits, my current favorite is Laphroig 10 yr (Islay Single Malt) will warm your belly, curl your toes, put hair on your chest, and make ya feel like your sitting next to a big bonfire by the sea.

    A lot of good beers mentioned so far...

    I'm drinking this Abita Pecan Harvest Ale right now. Unlike most nut beers, it's actually made with nuts and is very good.

    Plus I got a whole case for free with a measly $5 donation to the City of Hope [​IMG]

    ^Cave Creek Chile Beer! Man I have not seen that in years. Didn't know if it was still made. Fantastic stuff. A Serrano pepper in every bottle.

    Other notable beers:

    Orval - The best Belgium Trappist beer.
    OB Larger - An awesome Koren larger.
    Budwiser - The King of Beers (my daily go to beer).
    Pacifico - No lime needed.

    ^ I would love to bowhunt hogs. Don't have them in Jersey. I heard a great comment about wild hogs,

    "There are two kinds of states when it comes to wild hogs, those that have them and those that will."

    Good luck on you hunt.

    My first response to the question of the best beer for BBQ is...cold, or any.

    I wanted to throw this one out there - Xingu (pronounced Zing-Goo). I found this at a Brazilian Churrascaria, you know, one of those Brazilian steak houses, where they march skewers of BBQ around and cut off portions right on your plate (they are awesome, but typically pretty pricey.) I tried this beer, and it is a Brazilian dark beer, about the color of Guiness. It is way different than guiness, in that it has a slight residual malty sweetness (not syrupy, but just a hint in the back of your throat), but the same smoothness as Guiness that is fantastic. I looked this up at a local liquor store, and it was about $10.00 for a six pack, but if you like dark beers, this one is a good one to try at least once. I highly recommend it!
