I like the Czech beers, like Budweiser.

I drink Becks, Hoegarden and Grolsch mainly.

Yeah, I used to drink a lot of Grolsch, Guiness, and Heinie. Never tried the Dogfish head IPAs. I'm gonna be close to a place today that has a very wide selection though, so I may just pick some up.

Another good ale to try is Flying Dog Snake Bite or Triple Dog. And Eye of the Hawk from Mendocino Brewery is really good as well.

For desert, try a Young's Double Chocolate Stout. Tastes like a Guiness with a Hershey Kiss dropped in it. Yummmmmmmm..........

My father just loves GRolsch.

I'm more of a gin-drinker, but I have a cousin who is one of those micro-brew kids.

Oh I haven't drank Hendricks in ages.

Being in Lexington, you find yourself drinking a lot of bourbon. Blantons and Woodford is my drink these days actually.

I'm not much of a drinker though, I keep it reasonable since my family is a load of heavy-drinkers, and some alcoholics.

Heard this quote a while ago: "Nobody loves beer more than germans, and nobody loves nazi's more than germans on beer!" :mrgreen:

Grolsch is good, and guess what, it's Dutch! So is Heineken, but I'm not too proud of that, stuff tastes like water.

I like me some Jupiler.
