    Just wondering what everybody's favorite beer is. I am sure alot of you don't drink so I guess yours would be Root Beer :lol:

    Mine is Budweiser...
    Although Blue Moon is growing on me

    seeing as im a teenager and most of us these days have or do drink im gonna answer this.. keep in mind i do not drink often and it is in fact with my father because he sees me as man enough and responsible enough to have 1 or 2 beers with him now and then! but my favorite is bud light because thats all ive drank. im prolly gonna get some negative comments about this but just know that i am probably the most responsible kid in my grade almost because im sure that all of their dads wouldnt trust them to drink! and atleast im not like most kids and deny doin it in the first place because im not ashamed with it, i dont see a problem with havin a few beers now and then with my old man. but thats me

    I haven't had a bad Abbey beer yet.
    I'm some what of a beer conniseur, obviously it's not going to be an Anheiser Busch product or any other Domestic rice brewer.

    My beer during the week ranges from Shiner Bock, Shiner Hefeweizen, 60 minute Dogfish Head, Hop Devil, to a few naturals or busch lights to fill in.

    On the weekends, the real beer comes out. You'll find me drinking beer from corked bottles. Beer brewed by monks, or any number of brewers of real beer domestic or foreign but mostly foreign.
    There are few brewers in the states that brew real beer. There are many microbrews that have the right idea but they arent big enough to market it widely.
    So domesticly you cant go wrong with Victory Beer, Ommegang Brewery, Craft Brewers , and a few others.

    I've threatened to become homeless move to Bavaria and hold a sign on the street that says, Will work for beer.
    Some awesome beer comes out of that part of the world.

    Mark, there is a microbrew out of Bloomington, IN that is trying to extend. It is called Upland. If you ever get the chance to try it, do! it is phenomal.

    Wil-I agree, there is no problem with a little drinking IMO as long as it is done responsibly. When i was underage I always told me parents if i was going to be drinking at a friends house. There motto was it is safer to know where I am then be out sneaking around and driving around drunk. Just keep your head on your shoulders (sounds like u won't have a problem with that)

    Amy, the proper term would be Abbey beer.
    Monks basicly live off the land, if they dont grow it they dont eat it.
    One thing that makes their beer top notch is their brewing techniques.
    Open vatting. Some Abbeys have open vats with glass roofs over them. When they open the glass panels pollen from trees they have growing or plants is able to enter the brew process imparting different flavors or flavoring. They are fermented or refermented in the bottle as many good beers are.
    The other thing is how they manage and "protect" the glutens ( a type of protein) through the brewing process. The results are a beer with alot of flavor. Flavor that you can taste the different ingredients in the makeup and that head that comes with pouring a glass. After the beer is given a chance to roll the head takes on a craggy granite look. When you see that, you know you have pulled the cork on a good bottle of beer.

    My favorite to date is Maredsous 8. The 8 is 8% alcohol. There is a Maredsous 10 also.
    A simple Google search will show the bottle. Most often it comes in a 750 ML bottle . Same size as a bottle of wine. It corked and wired like champagne. It sells for around 8 dollars a bottle.

    A Trappist beer is basicly what Kosher is to the Jewish community.
    A Trappist beer has to be brewed within the walls of an abbey.
    I pulled the cork on a 15 dollar bottle of Trappist at the National gathering.
    It has a unique flavor often equated to a saddle blanket.
    I dont get that out of it. I equate it to muskiness but not real musky.
    In other words all the ingredients work together instead of one ingredient standing tall and screaming Me! Me! Me!

    These beers arent best served cold, slightly chilled imparts the flavor.
    Even Shinerbock, the American brewed Bavarian beer is alot better slightly chilled then ice cold. Ice cold it has a metallicly flavor. Slightly chilled its an entirely different taste.
