    Anchor California Lager from the store. XX dark on tap at my.local taqueria. I know, I'm a wimpy peasant when it comes to beer. Sorry.

    Summer - Surly Todd the Axe Man or one man mosh pit.

    Winter / fall - Bent Paddle Black Ale or Boulder Beer Shake Chocolate Porter.

    Great Divide Hazy IPA, Odd 13 Superfan Hazy IPA, Ecliptic Phazer Hazy IPA are my everyday gotos.

    If I'm in a place where I can only get big brands, I go Cigar City Jai Alai or Ballast Point Sculpin.

    If I can get them I would always prefer to drink, all day everyday, Weldworks Juicy bits (which I can often get) or Treehouse (Julius, Doppleganger, Green, etc) (which I can only rarely get.) So those are my gotos if the world of beer acquirement is perfect. Which it often isn't.

    Yes, I'm that guy. Life is too short to ski shitty skis, ride shitty bikes, listen to shitty music, or drink shitty beer.

    This might be mine as well. Love it. My other option is Lagunitas Little Sumpin' Sumpin'.

    In the summer, I like German-style hefeweizens, but they're a bit harder to find everywhere. I don't like wheat beers with fruit/citrus nearly as much. Paulaner is my go to, but I have to pick it up at a larger store. My local gas station/liquor store doesn't have it (and because the world sometimes does improve, often has both the Bell's and the Lagunitas). For a while, Yuengling did a German-style hefeweizen that I really liked and was widely available ( and I thought it was a fantastic value), but it seems discontinued now.

    Paulaner makes some tasty brews, for a large company. Which brings me to the important part, and can maybe help clear up my Warsteiner issue. Has beer shipping improved? Are folks drinking these "exotic" imports in the US finding them to be fresh? Is it very much dependent, i.e. hit and miss, on the specific supply chain to the specific store? Which distributors are doing it right?

    I'm pretty over the NEIPA trend. Maybe have one every once in a while, but not every day. Shit gets old and wears out your palate, and your gut.

    x2. If Iím thirsty Iíll drink water. Beer is a treat. No sense growing a beer belly with crappy beer I donít really enjoy. By the same token, Iím liberal with drain pours. If I open up something that isnít good or isnít hitting the spot or isnít interesting Iíll pour that shit in a second. Not gonna get fat on something I have to choke down.
    focus.

    +1, part of the reason why I like fractional IPAs. low IBUs & essentially a dressed-up pilsner with more taste.

    For cheap beer in a can nothing even comes close to touching Hamms.

    I could say the same for Utica Club. Not necessarily the greatest but super refreshing and a killer value. I live too far south to get it locally but usually grab a case when I’m in Albany (pretty regularly). Guinness mostly for winter time.

    Problem with that statement is that two of those are a matter of taste. And I'm not telling you which two.

    Genny is pretty good too. I feel like Genny dominates CNY and UC is more common further north

    If weíre talking grocery store beer that you can buy in 12+ packs, Long Trail VT IPA or Founders All Day are easy choices.

    Friend of a friend has some connections to Rainier Brewing. Got a call from my friend who said Rainier misprinted a bunch of cans and are getting rid of them for cheap. I paid $30 for 5 24 packs of 24 oz cans, so Rainier is about to be my go-to for quite a while...

    When I get the crew back up to your neck of the woods next winter I'm bringing you something to sample in case we get some turns in. Sorry it didn't work out last time. Hope you are healing up.

    Bierdstadt Slow Pour Pils.

    Only available on tap, but fuck me if it isn't the tits. Luckily you can buy your own kegs for taking to the ski hill.

    Pabst Blue Ribbon.

    I like good craft brews as much as the next guy, but after a good ride or ski when I'm thristy nothing goes down faster or smoothier. I always feel like I'm wasting a good IPA when I drink it down in a few minutes after a ride. I also can only drink about 4 IPAs in a sitting before I'm over it. I typically prefer a good Pilsner if I'm going to be drinking a mass quantity, but I don't have much brand alliance.

    and my fav beer is still Alaskan Amber altho it's harder to be the go-to with all the new microbrews replacing Alaskan at the taps
