It's local, but I find it superb--Boulevard Brewerey's Pale Ale. They also offer a wheat beer (not like the German flavored ones, just a nice flavorful beer, lighter than the ale), an Irish Ale in spring, a lager in fall (not wimpy like typical American lagers, but robust and tasty), a porter, and a few others. If you make it to Kansas City, give the Boulevard beers a try.

John Smith's smooth? You must be joking. Why include piss in a list of beers? Beer should be alive, served from handpump if not from the barrel, not pasturised cat-waz serverd under nitrogen top-pressure.

And while we're at it, I think Guinness is over-rated. They say it's better in Ireland. All I can say is, it had better be.

And while we're at it, am I alone in thinking that it's becoming increasingly difficult to find beer (that's beer, alive, served from handpump if not from the barrel) served at an appropriate temperature; for the Guinness & lager drinkers among you, an appropriate temperature is WARM. Why kill all taste, as is necessary with lager, by chilling it when the product at correct temperature fills the nose with delightful bouquet, the mouth with tastes of warm malt and sharp hops and leaves lingering aftertastes of elderflower or liquorice? The very names of the hops (Fuggles, Goldings, names themselves to linger on the tongue) are redolent of a tradition older than most of the song I sing, a tradition that I'm determined my thirst (and, I have to confess my sheer delight in drinking beer long after the thirst is quenched) shall help to maintain.

So what's good? Old Mill Mild (dark, nutty, delicious, brewed in Yorkshire, of a strength low enough to leave you standing up even after a satiety -- and satiety doesn't come early with a beer that good) is one of my favourites and, conveniently, served just round the corner from my office. London Pride is also wonderful (no geographical preferences here, you'll note). But I'll drink anything out of a handpump, and enjoy 99% of it.

Beer is wonderful. Beer is best.

3 beers from the Abbeydale brewery. Absolution is the standard, a strong bitter. Black Lurcher is stout, 9%-ish. And Last Rites is 12% upwards, is smooth as lemonade so you drink it without hardly noticing, until you try to stand up!

Or a pint of mild goes down nicely with a plate of decent home-cooked food.

Guinness, Guinness, and Guinness. I don't think it's overrated and it shouldn't be WARM, unless 55 degrees is considered WARM. By American ice-cold standards I suppose it would be. I keep them in thr fridge but let them sit out about 30 minutes before drinking. Then it's perfect (except for the fact it's in a bottle but I haven't figured out how to get my own keg just yet). Mister calls it "liquid rye bread" and usually won't drink it, or any other stout. Once in awhile he may have a porter but he doesn't love the dark beers as much as I do.

It's hot here in Tennessee now so pale beers are nice... I actually like a cold Rolling Rock on a hot day, or a cold Woodpecker cider. But my favorite beer drink for the summer is...... SHANDY. Rolling Rock makes a good shandy as do several of the medium-dark beers.

This week a houseguest treated us to a 12-pack of Shiner Bock. I like that pretty well too. Shiner makes several other beers which are unfortunately not available outside the Republic of Texas.

I tried Samuel Adams and really didn't care for it.

One of our new favorites is an import called La Trappe, which is brewed by Trappist monks in Holland. It comes in gray crock bottles, which is what caught our interest in the first place (we can use the bottles for living history events). It's a reddish beer with a slightly fruity aftertaste. There's a bottle in the fridge right now.......

I have never managed to learn to like beer. I tried in college, and tried again much harder in grad school; I tried it in Ireland. I tried it after spending a day housepainting. I tried it everywhere and even when I am thirstier than I can imagine being, it still tastes, well, bad. I do, however, like liquor and mixed drinks; I did OK in Ireland without the Guiness once I'd learned that the "punch" the Clancys sang about is called Hot Whiskey where I was, and boy, is THAT good.

Any hints from y'all on how to learn to like beer? I find it a social grace I consider myself to lack.

This thread is making me want to hop (pun not intended)on a plane and sample real ales!

Unfortunately there aren't too many around Toronto. A few brew pubs exist and there are some micros. Creemore , as Mooh said is, pretty good and is what I normally have. Cameron's Pale once you find it. I should go up to the Granite Brew pub - been to the one in Halifax, Nova Scotia and it was marvellous.

For English ales beggars can't be choosers so we do have to have John Smiths though Ruddles is now around.

I have to agree with Bald Eagle as far as the Guinness is concerned.
When you live and travel overseas, you get to sample a wide variety of Guinness. Most of which is certainly not what you would expect in Ireland.

However, I can almost always put this down to the impatience of the barman (Beers are much easier to pull, and you can sell more of them in the time it takes to pull a decent pint).
Proper care of the lines is very important also, and the distance from tap to barrel is critical.

I have tasted excellent Guinness in my travels, as well as chalky crap, heavily disguised behind the Guinness name.

A few notable 'Guinness' Pubs:
Vaughan's, Chicago
Paddy Go Easy, Åboulevarden, Århus, Denmark.
John D. McGurks, corner of 12th and Russell, St. Louis.

Caring people who care about Guinness!

however when ABBOTT is "on song" it's hard to beat, but haven't had a decent draught since the early 90's. the cans with a widgett are the next best thing but if you've carried them home you're best off leaving them in the fridge for a few hours.

When I was a wee tot, my parents were going to college, and all the parties were at our house. In the mornings, I'd help clean up (I was short enough to find the ashtrays hidden under the chairs, and I wasn't hung over.) *That's* why I like Iron City Beer (from Pittsburgh), with Duquesne Beer (likewise) coming in a close second, but I don't have to wait until they're flat anymore, and I don't have to check for used cigarette butts before I take a drink. The worst beerI ever had was a homemade dark brew that a medievalist flavored with cloves. Tasted like Evening in Paris perfume.

Aaah, home brew! When I was poor and newly married we made our own beer. One night we awoke to a noise we thought was a car accident outside. Found the living room awash with beer and bits of glass embedded in the furniture as a gallon jar had exploded. Fortunate that we hadn't been in there at the time. We gave up after that! Another good thing was that it was a furnished let and the stuff was in a ratty state anyway ( a previous tenant had taken a knife to most of the furniture during a "domestic" - well it was Peckham!) so the landlord didn't gripe!

I too am quite partial to Guinness but I'd like to sing the praises of a local brew as well. I've thought for many years that American beer is some of the world's worst. There are no beer purity laws here and it's production (and quality) is close to that of soft carbonated beverages.

There is, however, a brew made a few miles from here called Stone City Iowa Pale Ale that is really good. The Stone City Brewrey began in Stone City, Ia., the subject of Grant Wood's famous painting, but found that the water in their wells was not conducive to the finest brew. They moved their brewrey to the nearby town of Solon and now make an excellent product. If you're driving through Iowa on I-80 on a weekday before 6:00pm it's worth the ten mile detour up Iowa Route 1 to Solon.

Iowa Pale Ale is sold locally in grocery stores but I don't think it has a wider distribution. Maybe it could be ordered through Beer Across America or one of those beer-of-the-month clubs.

You won't be disappointed.

Here in Minnesota, the best local beers are James Page Voyageur Pale Ale and Summit Pale Ale.

Of the nationally distributed beers, I favor Redhook ESB or IPA.

I'm referring to bottled beer you drink at home. Most bars still serve it way too cold.

Max, I knew I liked you for good reason.

Sam Smith's just about anything is a good call... the only caveat is that some stores will let it sit out in full light (comes in clear bottles), and it will get a bit skunky in that case.

However, if you deal with reputable beer sellers, the Sam Smith Imperial stout is my all time favorite stout... the Samuel Smith pales are decent, and the Nut Brown Ale is an all around good brew.

Barring that, I've an affinity for Boddington's Pub Ale. Strangeways, here we come, indeed.

Also drinking in the Jug which regularly receives awards from CAMRA I can strongly recommend Just 4 U - the house speciality brewed by The Brown Cow brewery in Selby. Their No 4 is also well worth a pint or several and whilst Maiden Over is not my personal favourite it gets the vote of many Juggers.

I normally drink Guinness if I go out and I think it is a nice pint in the UK but not as good as the Dublin brewed stuff. With regards temperature, I think that Guinness does need to be a little colder than a real ale but the Guinness Extra Cold that a lot of pubs round here offer is too cold.

Some of my favourite bitters: Ruddles County, Abbot Ale, Bass, Norton Old Hookey, Wadsworth 6X.

Worst bitters; Robinsons, Wherry.

For something to drink at home, I am quite fond of Newcastle Brown and McEwan's Export.

I tend to avoid the "killers" - all those strong bitters. Why drink one pint of those when you can drink 3 of something less strong? Which is why I tend not to do cider (that and the indigestion which seems to go with the apple acid).

No-one has mentioned "Flagship" beer brewed in Chatham dockyard, and they shoud have done. The beer is good and the names are exotic - including in particular "Frigging in the Rigging".

For the strangest tasting stuff (not nasty, just different, and very different indeed when relieving oneself after several) the vote would have to go to the USA fo Crazy Ed's Chilli beer.

Richard, I've had some chili beer (home-brewed) and it wasn't too bad. Wouldn't be my first choice, for it is indeed strange as you say--I think it would take some getting used to.

The mention of bitters reminds me that I enjoy Foster's Bitter (comes in the large "oil can" here in the States). Unfortunately it's hard to find, while their lager (boring) is readily available.

To keep this thread somewhat on a musical note, John Prine does a song on his "German Afternoons" CD called "Out of Love" The lyrics are made up of beer commercial slogans.
