Cool

Knightron:
I know what you mean about discovering that there's beer outside of lagers, as I'm from the US and we've got more generic lager than we can shake a stick at. Good thing there's craft & microbrews here to save us!

I'd suggest just trying out all the different beer you can, reading up on beeradvocate.com and other beer rating and review sites to get a general idea of what seems popular.

I wanted to throw out some buzzwords like stout and IPA, but I've found that once you descend into the world of better beer, those definitions break down and you really just have to drink the beer and let your tongue figure it out.

I live in Kansas, US where there are so many very good micro wheat beers. Boulevard which is made in Kansas City is an excellent wheat beer. Their other beers aren't as great.

Don't drink much these days, But when I do it's Ale, preferably a good stout ale. Rogue Dead Guy Ale (U.S.) and Guinness Extra Stout comes to mind. Sheaf Stout, IIRC, is from "Down Under" and was pretty good as well. You might like some of the IPA's as well.

In the desert here where temps reach 120F. A good clean lager beer that does not leave any leftovers/slickness in your throat or mouth is best. I prefer Red Stripe beer because of this.

Quenching your thirst is what it is all about here in the desert. Not eating your beer. Most American Lagers are too after tasty and are not like drinking spring water. Red Stripe got it right though. Clean and Crisp is best in high heat conditions.

Being a life long beer drinking biker. I have pretty much drank them all.

Yerahs, Sheaf Stout is from here (.au), another CUB (Carlton & United Breweries) beer. Though IIRC is another beer brand that CUB bought at some point in time.

Given some of the ciders a try? I find they are better in the heat than any beer. If its hot, avoid the 'hard' ciders, even if they are avaible. They will kick you in the head if drunk in the heat.

No Hard Ciders available in my one horse town. I have the local beer drive-in order me the Red Stripe. Maybe if I knew the best cider. I would give the guy a special order just to try it out.

Not suprised, I live in a major city and I think I've seen hard cider on the shelves in the offy once.

I'm not sure about this, I've never drunk it, but I've heard OK things about this brand. Should be more easily avaible in Texas than others-

Like girls/boys, cars/bikes, beer, and everything else there is no 'best' cider. There might be a cider thats best for you though.

Hi,

Mostly, 'if it begins with 'B' and ends with 'r' then it's just a beer to me'. I'm open to most beers or ale to satisfy my thirst.

Dr's are limiting my intake for health reasons, so my nights out with the wife are when I imbibe in controlled manner. Occasionally a beer or ale at home whenever I want one.

I do enjoy tastings for local brew houses. Plus some friends are into home brewing. Man, some are really good while others should not be given to a 'horse' let alone a human. Nor even fit for 'pigs'. I will politely state, not my style, do you have a domestic.

Always wanted to brew my own, just too much on my plate now.
