    This is for people to post about beers that maybe hard to find, local, or just odd.

    Myself, I like Dead Guy Ale, Youngs' Double Chocolate Stout, S.S. Taddycaster, Frambois, as well as many others!

    I live in AZ, shout out to Papago brewery, Four Peaks brewery, and that one in Sedona I cannot remember.

    I used to live in Muncie, IN. The Heorot rules!

    Just reading your post about beer made my hangover worse i think. I use to drink the hell out of Abita Amber, but lately I've been forced to drink the Miller High Life cause of costs.

    Shiner Bock, brewed in Shiner, TX.

    I'm not sure how wide spread it is, but I've had trouble on more than one occasion finding it outside of TX. Shiner Bock is their basic beer, very good mix of old world tastes and the Bud/Coors/Miller lagers drinkability, plus they make some great seasonal beers and right now are on the second to last year of the count down to 100 years of brewing, coming out with a new specialty beer each year. Haven't tried the 99 brew yet, but the 98 one was pretty weird, yet delicious.

    I second your choice dude. I LOVE me some Shiner! I lived in Waco so I got to enjoy Shiner before they started shipping it further north. Now I live in Ohio and I STILL go out of my way to get it when I have a drink. Good stuff.

    I liked the beer the monks who ran the college I went to brewed. Their archabbey is in Latrobe, PA, which might explain why their beer tasted faintly like Rolling Rock.

    Lately I'm a Big Rock (Alberta) beer fan. The best beers I've ever had were in Belgium. Everything from Leffe to small microbrewed beers there are awesome.

    Otherwise I recommend Creemore Springs. Unpasteurized so you drink it faster.

    Thinking about it the only places I've ever had trouble finding it at has been in the Southwest US. I couldn't find any in Arizona or California once, but didn't really look too much in Cali since the price for just Bud was outrageous, went practically all over Las Vegas looking for a Shiner when I was there last year to no avail.

    I forget the name of it, but I had a beer that was made with apricots once that was completely tasty.

    Some of the best beer i have had was a trapist ale called Chimay. They sell it in like 3 bottle gift sets only.... Delicious and extremely potent

    Also new belgiums fat tire ftw!!! Cant get it in oklahoma but i get a case every time i drive through texas

    We had a keg of shiner blonde at every one of our parties this year, great stuff

    We had a little home brew operation going this past year, and Our Wheat and Mexican style beers were off the hook. But sadly we have drank all we have brewed.......

    oh well shameless plug lol

    I like Sams a lot but not enough to buy sixers or a case of it. The problem then is that I've never ever ever been to a bar that does not recognize that you CAN NOT SERVE SAMS IN A FREAKING FROZEN MUG!!!!! I seriously don't understand how freaking bars can't understand that the American Pilsner Lagers are the only ones that need to be served in an iced mug.

    Every time I try and get one I always forget to say something and end up having to wait 10-20 minutes after I get it before it warms up enough to actually taste like more than just the hops.

    However what I will buy during the summer is their Summer Ale. Tasty freaking unfiltered ale. Not a big fan of the Oktoberfest, and I have yet to try their two other seasonals.
