Thanks for saving the trouble.  I would have fallen into the trap and Beamish would have laughed at me.

    Well, Beamish laughs at all of us.  He doesn't need a reason really.  He's Beamish, and we're... well... not.

    Favorite beers:
    Weihenstephaner Hefeweiss (mmmmmm....)
    Franziskaner Hefeweizen (As a back up, when the Weihenstephaner is unavailable)
    Chimay (blue, usually, but it's hard to go wrong)

    Blue Moon's usually pretty good for a widely available domestic. Killian's, if I must have a beer and nothing better is available.

    Bluegrass Brewing Company has a few that are acceptably tasty, but they're local/regional. I'm generally willing to experiment with stuff in the microbrews or various small imports.

    Noteworthy beers:
    Dogfish Head 120-Minute IPA -- I'm not really crazy about it, but it's nice as a weird thing, every once in a great while. It's 20%abv (~40proof)! Thick and syrupy like a fruit lambic, though.

    Not really a stout guy, though. I'll have a Guinness once or twice a year, which mostly serves as a reminder why I don't drink it more often. (A pleasant reminder, but I'm just not often in the mood for it.)

    you don't like stouts but you'll enjoy a 120 IPA? I've tried 60 and 90 minute IPA's and can't finish either. Don't even want to try a 120min.

    I have tried some of Dogfish Head's other, non IPA's, and they're quite tasty.

    I think his taste buds are surely dead or at least in full retreat.

    Well, I've met few beers I didn't like at all (Heineken, Molson Ice, some Sam Adams brew that was all bread but otherwise rather bland, Goose Island Hex Nut), a handful I'm rather apathetic about (Bud! for when the water isn't drinkable!) and a fair number that I might drink once in a while, but never on a regular basis. I rather like Guinness, but I don't much want to drink it on a regular basis. I'm not crazy for IPAs, though. Might have one now and again, but I'd generally prefer a wheat beer or lager.

    I can't recall if I've tried the 60 or 90 minute IPAs. The 120 is a different critter from the IPAs I have tried, though, and, perhaps, a little variable in exact quality. It's not a beer I'd drink regularly either, even if it weren't $8-10 a bottle. Thought I'd throw it out there, though.

    India Pale Ales are supposed to be very bitter because of extra hops, correct?

    Correct. Do not count them out though. Your taste buds are your own.

    I haven't tried IPA anyway.  I just heard the above and wanted to confirm with people that actually drink it.

    I count them WAY out.   They will be found no where near my glass.  Water first.

    ^^^^ Agree.  I seriously dislike IPAs.

    I almost forgot one of my major favs...  Big Sky Moose Drool.

    Another beer I like a lot is Shiner Bock.  Fry's had some Shiner Black Label so I tried that the other day.  I really liked it. Best of all Fry's had Shiner Bock on sale for $10.99 for a 12 pack.  :beer

    OOHH! I totally forgot about that stuff! I'll be up in WA State on business in a week or so and I know a great little bar that serves Moose Drool. I'll be drinking my fill.

    Funny the deli store sandwich shop across the street carries a lot of the non-mainstream brews mentioned on this thread.  I saw other Sam Adams flavors as well as three or four offerings from Shiner, including the Bock.
