Years ago when I was drinking my favorite brew was whatever you were buying

A friend turned me on to Leinenkugel's awhile back and just about everything they produce is excellent except for the berry flavored stuff (sacrilage if you ask me). Second the Great Lakes Brewing stuff also.
If your interested in brewing your own I would highly recommend doing some reading and research before getting started. It's not hard but there's a slight learning curve involved. An excellent source for brewing supplies that I have used for years is MoreBeer.com.Hey Mike, what do you use to brew your own? I've been looking at one of those kits made by Coopers.

Google for a brew club in your area. More people are home brewing these days and most are willing to help you get started. You can usually pick up someone's start up gear cheap and find out where the local deals are or get in group purchases.
I only bottled 10gal. before I started kegging. The initial cost is a bit but the savings in time is worth every penny.
Sorry for the thread jack!
I don't always drink beer, but when I do, its Dos Equis.

Leine's Fireside Nut Brown is just hitting shelves, good stuff. As far as IPAs, Summit Extra Pale is the old standby, Red Lodge's Bent Nail (hard to find outside of MT) is my favorite IPA hands-down. Flying Dog's Raging b-i-t-c-h is good too.

Smithwick's, Samuel Adams, like lots of the British lagers & ales I discovered on port visits during my Navy time. Also, I have recently been introduced to some good German beers through our new German deli in town; especially the dark Hefe-Weizens (wheat beer).
OK I will ask - what does IPA stand for???????????

Never argue with an idiot - they'll bring you down to their level then beat you with experience.
The last six pack I bought was Sam Adams Winter Lager. Over the last year I think I have bought more Bass than anything. In my travels I have found that I like German Pilsners, lately I have been traveling in the Middle East, Kuwait and Saudi are very dry, UAE and Jordan you can get a beer at your hotel, but no local brew. Not sure I would be willing to try a local brew even if there was one. In the Phillipeans I drank San Migel and Iron Horse, not sure I would drink either if I had another choice.
