Lately I find myself drinking more Ales than Lagers. My two ales that I've been drinking on a regular bases seem to be Mendocino Red Tail Ale and Saranac Pale Ale. Cost about the same as a preminum lager such as Michelob, and both taste muxh better. Curious about what others think in regards to Ales and Lagers.

Lately I've been enjoying two ales, both from Chicago's Goose Island Beer Company - their flagship, Honker's Ale, and their IPA (12-packs were seriously marked down recently).

The "darker the better" position (porters, stouts, blacks and browns) that I held ten or so years ago is starting to fade - I'm finding that the blonds and ambers allow for a bit more complexity on the palate - fruit, hops, spices, etc.

But, with brewskies, "it's all good" certainly applies.

There are so many good beers out in the market these days. I like them all. When you get down to the darker stuff, porters and stouts, taste can get much thicker. My motto has always been if it tastes good.......................DRINK IT.........................


Seriously though I like ales and the latter with meals, if I am gonna do some sport drinking it usually is Lagers.

I've really been enjoying some of the beers from a Long Island brewery called Blue Point Brewery: Toasted Lager, Blueberry Stout, and the 6.8% Hoptical Illusion. Their Oktoberfest is average.

Many of the ales out there today are just too heavily hopped for my taste, so I prefer lagers and pilseners, Stella and Pilsener Urquell the most. When I want something darker, I tend to skip over the ales and move to porters instead.

One of my dreams is to open a specialty beer/wine store here in our area. I would offer all types of beverages, specialty snacks, coffees, music CD's, scents. Provide beer/wine making products (brew kits) for the do it yourself folks. Sell home pub supplies such as draught beer systems, wine vaults, etc. I would even offer party set ups such as keg box rentals, party tents.

I would only be able to sell beer and wine as liquor sales are controlled by the state. Do any of you folks have stores like this near you that seem to be pretty successful? Is there anything unique these stores offer that others don't....etc. A lot of close friends I have talked with that are in the alcohol business seem to think it would do really well. Ideas are welcomed!!!!

Depends on my mood and what I'm doing.

If I'm at a show, I tend to want to drink more, and stick with lagers of the more common variety, that are lighter and go down easy.

If I'm at home, at a quiet neighborhood bar, or in a calmer setting, I prefer a nice hoppy IPA; Sierra Nevada, Southern Tier, Ithaca, Flying dog, Bear Republic, Saranac, Bell's Two-Hearted, Longhammer,.........yada, yada, yada. Those have a stronger flavor and pack a bigger alcohol punch. 2-4 or 5 is about my limit there or my as* is toast.

At shows, I tend to pour in the lagers with lower alcohol content and lighter flavor at a rate of around 2 per hour. I start fast and then slow the pace, trying to taper off near the end and maybe down a water to make myself road worthy if I'm the driver. If I have a co-pilot, I can let loose more and enjoy a healthy buzz.

Depends on the season. In the summer it's IPA's and heavier lagers (I can't drink lite beer). Smutty Nose, Brooklyn or Flying Dog all brew nice hoppy IPAs. As it cools down I enjoy drinking my favorite type of beer, Black Bavarian Lager. Sprecher Brewery in WI makes a great one, and they also make the best Winter Brew known to man. Those thick, dark lagers are mighty tasty this month of the year.

I like Rogue Dead Guy Ale. Might have something to do with the name, but I DO like the taste. Two pizzerias in town have it on draft, and one bar downtown has it in bottles. I like the draft better. Recently, I have enjoyed Sam Adams Boston Lager and Killians. Is Killians am ale or lager?

I find Odell's IPA to be out-freaking-standing.

Wonder if Saranac has any production issues after that huge fire? That was truly sad.

Both for me I really enjoy Heffewizen during the summer months. Widmer and Pyramid both have real nice ones. A local brewery here, Rock Bottom Brewery, makes a real tasty Hef. But I still love a good thick Samuel Smith nut brown ale or oakmeal stout if I want a meal out of a bottle

There are so many fine beers now.....I still enjoy some of the old standards of the micro brews, Sierra Neveda Pale Ale and Anchor Steam

I tend to drink more wine in the winter but it's beer for the rest of the year

Lager is generally my beer of choice , but I've started checking out different IPA's when opportunity knocks. I'm off to Hunter Mountain ( Home Of Mtn Jam ) this weekend and they have an Oktober Festival this weekend and I'll be sure to vary my types of beer intake !
