there isn't a bar or club in the usa that doesn't have budweiser on tap...budweiser's quality is perfectly fine...you act as though it is lower class or something. It isn't natural light or milwakee's best or malt liquer dude....there is nothing at all wrong with budweiser....

when you go to a sporting event it is usually the only beer they even have available, bud, coors, and miller.

to me if someone is drinking a heinken and they think that skunk ass beer makes them look high society then they are fools.

I can understand getting budweiser at a sporting event/bar/party. However, if you have TONS of beer to choose from, why woudl you choose bud? I mean, it's ok, but there is really nothing special about the beer itself. It's an american status symbol, much like Chevrolet, apple pie, etc.

too manly for guiness?

isn't that the stuff that puts hair on your chest?


to me it is the guiness drinkers that are trying to look manly, the heinikan drinkers that are trying to look rich, and the micro-brew drinkers trying to look sofisticated.

when it comes down to it, if you could only choose one beer to drink the rest of your life, you would choose a beer like bud, coors, or miller. because that other stuff gets old.


and of the non-regular beers, pauliner is the best. I spent my youth working at a beer store. I know what the f im talking about.

ok...every now and then I will order a black and tan or a new castle....but just one....then I just want beer.

I want my beer to taste like beer...I don't really like my beer all tricked out.

I find guiness too heavy to drink regularly. As wussy as it sounds i like drinking carona extra easy to drink refreshing enough. Anyone had redbull and guiness?

The original question is too broad to really be answered (since beer comes in so many varied forms). Are we talking top fermented or bottom fermented? Do bitters count? What about malt liquor (like Carlsberg's Elephant or the schwill soristitutes drink)?

Guinness is a very solid stout, topped in my mind only by Guinness Foreign export (7.9% abv instead of 2.9%), Mackesons Triple Stout and Sammy Smiths Oatmeal stout.

Most nationally distributed american "microbrews" are good but overrated, with some exceptions such as Anchor Steam


The best beers in the world are the belgian lambics and trippels. I also enjoy Caffrey's Irish Cream Ale (no longer imported into the US since the makers of Killians [coors I think] bought the rights and stopped importing it since it competed with that red colored american lager crap), Old Speckled Hen, and the occasional Warsteiner, Spatten, Mardsiou (sp?) and many othe rfine fine brews.

As far as American Lagers go, Strohs, PBR, Schlitz (the beer not the malt liquor), Lonestar, etc are all as good or significantly better than the big dogs (bud, miller, coors) while being cheaper. Fools who drink american brand beer tend to be the most undereducated beer drinkers out there. When I go american lager I do it right. Michelob may be the one exception to that rule and ever since they quite making Michelob Dry I have been sad

i was actually thinking "favorite beer" more than best. i am no expert...

that oatmeal stout is great stuff-- i havent had it in a few years
