Ninkasi out of Eugene and Blue Heron out of Portland Oregon been the flavors lately. We have some outstanding local beer, with organic hops and some serious brewers. As mentioned, Deschutes Brewery is another good beer line. For me these beers have become a luxury item for special occasions because of cost, 9.00 and up for a six. For budgeting times, PBR or Busch will do just fine.

Whenever I do get to travel outside the US, I look forward to trying other country's brews.

So when I talk of Bell's, they don't count? Not sure what "artisan brew aficianados" means.

Pumphouse is an artisan brewery. They have all kinds of variety and the beer is only available locally I think.

They have a brew pub as well where the chef uses the different beer in the dishes. great stuff and the beer has won a bunch of awards.

You bring up a fantastic point - not only is the beer exceptional in brew pubs/micro-breweries but the food is most often really wonderfull as well!

Good old fashioned Tennents Lager,brewed in Glasgow & Scotland's favourite.Glaswegians love their alcohol so they know how to make good beer.I hear that they love Buckfast tonic wine better though!

Lagunitas Hopstupid, and Firestone Union Jack. Two of the finest IPA's that I have found!

agreed on ninkasi they actually make a couple of my favorite brews we only have the 22oz bottles down here though and theyre like $6
stone and coronado brewing companies are both pretty good and much closer to me (though not much better on price)
some other ones i would recommend would be franziskaner, samuel smiths, gordon biersch
a little more affordable i would go with sierra nevada, belgium brewing co, or alaskan brewing co

as a cheaper more regular drink i like fosters heineken or tecate (i know tecate doesnt have the best reputation but its pretty cheap and i actually like it)

......why does good beer have to be so expensive

Stella Artois is my go-to beer.

Beck's is a close second (my Charles Bukowski shout out).

I also like Boddington's, poured correctly, in the proper glass. Or Old Speckled Hen.

In a bar with a tap - all bets are off. If they have somethin-somethin I'm game. But Sam Adam's officially blows (I'm from Massachusetts - they always have some god-awful Sam on tap).

If I'm slumming: Corona is OK or Bud in the can (never bottle). Or Miller High Life (fond memories of my dad).

Never, ever drink too many Pabst Blue Ribbons. Ever, ever, EVER.

But for the ultimate experience, when I can afford it: Le Fin du Monde. Best beer in a lifetime. Like champagne. Only better.

Most of the beer we have here is very expensive too. But lucky a few local breweries sort of stepped in. So you can buy this beer it's awful. But it's only 1 buck a beer. River Valley Red is so so. Buy it for the price not the taste. But I think after trying some of these strange brews like Innis and Gunn I'm done with drinking horse piss! But it's not cheap. I&G is 2.50 a bottle and the rum finish is 3.20 a bottle CAD$$

Talk about beer being expensive, here in the U.A.E., a case of Bud is around 160 Dirhams, around 45 U.S. Dollars. And of course you need a liquor licenses to buy anything. But I miss some of the breweries in the States. Up in Fort Collins, CO, New Belgium was wonderful. A pint of 1554 just brewed always hit the spot!

OMG, The grocery chain Kroger in my area has a build a six pack in bottles for $9.99 Pretty good selection too.

Bud Light Platinum is my current go to.

On occasion I do like Cream Stout, forgot who makes it.

I'm still refining my tastes, only been of age to drink for a couple years.

You all are posting some good stuff! It's only 7:30am here and you're making me thirsty!

Here are some of my favorites:
Sweetwater IPA - Sweetwater Brewing (Atlanta, Georgia) has some pretty good brews. Couple of times a year they do a high gravity run out of what they call "the dank tank". It's hard to find them in my area, but it is well worth the hunt!

Tuckaleechee Porter - This one is from a local micro-brewery, Smoky Mountain Brewery. Really dark and very good.

Bière Du Boucanier Dark Ale - I just call this one pirate beer. Cause it has 9% alcohol we have to get it at the liquor store. Because of the price, it's only a 1 or 2 times a year treat for me.

My current fave is from a local microbrew:

Picaroons

Yippe India Pale Ale:


An East Coast-style India Pale Ale that weaves hop bitterness and aroma throughout a blanket of malt background. This beer may change from batch to batch as we explore the various interpretations of the style.


It's 6.5% but tastes like just about any pale ale. They offer a "Growler" which is a 64 ounce jug you purchase. It costs 19$ CAN to buy the jug and fill it with draft, then 10$ each time you fill it. Straight from the keg and stays good for about 2 days.

In fact, I have to go fill mine up tonight!
