    My tastes change with the season. Right now I'm into stouts, mostly oat and coffee. I'm loving a local brewery's chocolate cherry beer (sounded gross, but I'm hooked). In spring and summer I tend to go for pale ales and fruit varieties. When I want a cheap drink with low calories and/or don't have a good selection, I go with watery Mich Ultra.

    Ufortunately, coming from such a small town, my choices were only from a few of the big brand beers (Coors Light, Bud Light, Candian, etc.). Since moving to southern Ontario, I have been on a rampage trying as many different varieties as possible from small local breweries.

    I make my own gingerbeer. It says to brew it for 2 days but I leave mine for a week. Delish! After that it becomes mampoer and I can't drink it. It slays the hardened alcoholic - out cold

    ^ @Versicolour - I'd like the recipe too. I'll bet it's awesome. @JustSomeJD makes the absolute best freaking pumpkin ale I've ever had...

    Hmm. Let's see if I can remember off the top of my head. I have already locked up and switched off my computer.

    15 liters of water (warm, not boiling)
    8 cups of sugar (I like to use half white and half brown)
    2 cups of raisins
    30 gr brewers yeast
    1 Tablespoon Cream of Tartar (tartaric acid)
    Ground ginger (I forget how much, but it makes the eyes water - probably about 2 - 4 Tablespoons)

    Mix it all together in a big bucket and place in a warm area for 2 - 7 days depending on your preference. Strain through a cloth or tea strainer to remove the larger particles. Eat the raisins at your own risk or put them back. Store in the fridge.

    I will check on the quantities tomorrow and make sure I got them right.

    Looks good! Do you ever fine your brews? I use chitosan and kieselsol, which helps with clarity and has an effect on making it taste crisper.

    I <3 the taste, of beer but I only drink non alcoholic, if/when plausible; since I've genetic liver disease & come via a family of alcoholics, whom also ran their own bar; plus 1 of them literally turned her entire basement into a fully functional western saloon!

    Porters, Stouts and a nice Scottish Ale! The chocolate or coffee undertone ones are my ultimate favorite!

    Two favorites are "free" and "cold" right?

    It makes me a jolly good fellow.

    I like beer.

    It helps me unwind and sometimes it makes me feel mellow.

    Whiskey's too rough, Champagne costs too much, vodka puts my mouth in gear.

    This little post should help explain to you that as a matter of fact I like beer.

    Amen

    If you haven’t tried it already, you may enjoy Hobgoblin by Wychwood Brewery.
