Me - I like 'em hoppy, or sweet, dark or not-so-dark, but lights and such can kiss my ass! :)

1) Pilsner Urquell - like it so much I visited the bewery in the Czech Republic
2) Celebrator Maximator - usually $15 for a six pack of tiny bottles, but oh so tasty.
3) AugustinerBrau Maximator - Just Damn!
4) Sammy's Boston Lager - when I'm feeling cheap but still want something tasty (I'm also quite partial to their triple bock and chocolate bock. We have a bit bottle of their millinium beer that was brewed for Y2K and is supposed to age like a wine. I keep threatening to break it out, much to the wifey's chagrin. :D )
5) Sweetwater 420 - very, very drinkable.

I could go on and on, but let's see what everyone else likes....

I should also mention that we have a kegerator and have brewed our own as well. :alcohol:

:thumb: for 1,2 and 4. We don't get 3 & 5 round here.
Czech Budvar is pretty good too. A bit like a slightly subtler version of Urquell.

I brew at home (full mash, 50 litre brew length and mostly draft dispense) and used to be a pro brewer but have not heard of a kegerator. Is it a custom built keg/fridge set up?
The range of gear available to the US home brewer is mind boggling. :thumb:

Wuh-ho! A kindred spirit! Budvar is also well liked here. It's a bit of an inside joke here because the American Budweiser chose to conflict with their marketing. Budvar has always been known as the "Beer of Kings". The rice-brewing American outfit chose to use the slogan "King of Beers". Only recently were we even allowed to get Budvar here in the states. Sad.

Full mash, eh?!!! Very cool! The missus did a raspberry mead last year that is about due for the bottle. As soon as the fermenting vessels are cleared up, I'll be taking another shot at a "stupid bastid" brew. I'm trying for something with a touch of cascades hop, but with a real body behind it. Gotta do lagering for that. :)

Oh, and sorry for the confusion on the term Kegerator - it's really just slang for an oversized dorm fridge that has a beer dispenser screwed on top. Just big enough inside for one half-barrel keg and a co2 tank.

RP - if you ever find yourself in the US, do please look me up. We'll have a blast. :thumb: By the same token, I gotta get off my duff and visit down your way for a bit.

Cheers!

I once brewed an Bud clone when I was working my way through a bunch of recipes in a book by an English guy called Dave Line. A female friend of mine tasted it and said "Yummy. None of that nasty 'Beer' taste" :rotfl:

It is something I really want to do sometime in the future. Tour the world by bike and visit people, drink beers at the source and dive the best diving spots.

Hop-head here!! :D HondaGalToo should also be chiming in soon as to love of hops - that wonderful girl recently sent me a care package containing 3 wonderful local beers (local to her) that I couldn't get here in Tucson. For you peeps that haven't, you must try a barleywine style beer. Usually around 9 1/2% - 11% abv - you can chew these. And they are often somewhat "sweetish"... :cheers:

How come?! :huh:
I'm alergic to something in the beer. I can't even get 1/2 a beer down and start sneezing and the wheezing and having difficulty breathing. I drank beer all the way up to I was 25yoa with no problems.

Oxygen is better than beer.
