Since we are officially into the Dog Days of Summer, let's do a semi-serious survey of the beers that NELSAPer's prefer. Divide them into domestic and imported. I will try to summarize the tally if we get a big enough response. For me, in no particular order:

Domestic:
Long Trail
Otter Creek
Magic Hat
Labatt's Blue (no flames please)
Whatever is in the keg

Imported:
Bass Ale
Watney's Red Barrel
MacKesson Stout
Castle Milk Stout
Lion Lager
Guinness

What are your favorites?

Domestic:

Anchor Liberty Ale - favorite domestic

Fortuantely there are now many excellent domestic beers (e.g., Anchorsteam, Sierra Nevada Pale Ale, Long Trail Ale, Sam Adams lager).

Imports:

Schneider House Weizen Bier, Hoegartten White, Samual Smith's Pale Ale, Young's IPA (I'm partial to wheat beers and Britsh Syle pale ales).

Too many fine beers and too little memory left (wonder if there's an association there) but these are a few favorites.

harpoon IPA, sierra nevada pale ale, otter creek larger & pale ale, cannon ale (micro brew in littleton's italian oasis), tuckerman ale, and any double bock when i want something really full and rich.

on the imported side... well, i really don't like any imported beer that i have tried other than newcastle brown ale.

my rule of thumb for beer is simple: if a particular beer is advertized nationally, i won't drink it.

Just had a blackberry wheat last night. Truly fine.

There is such a thing as Tuckerman Ale? Who makes that and where can us folks in the banana belt get it?

rstuthill; To answer your question, Tuckerman Ale is brewed by Tuckerman Brewing in NH. To my knowledge the only place near you to buy it is Town & Country Liquors in W. Springfield MA.

Now for my list;

Domestic:

Long Trail
Northampton Brewery
Berkshire Brewing Co.
Paper City (Holyoke MA)
Smuttynose Brewing
Dogfish Brewing
Magic Hat
Flying Dog Brewing
Hyland Orchard Brewing
Post Road Brewing
Otter Creek
Olde Burnside Brewing (E. Hartford CT)


Imported:

Anything from England or Ireland


Of course nothing beats a glass of homebrewed beer!

Lately Miller Lite & Coors Light.....
After reading about all the high class obscure beers you all consume my proclamation of liking commercialized domestics probably makes me sound like that guy in that Polander Fruit Spread commercial who says "please pass the jelly"

I like free beer best.

Domestic micro brews are what I usually drink covering a wide range of beer and ales. I'm not a wheat beer fan with the only exception being Longr Trail Blackberry Wheat. I also like beer from the UK, Belgium, Germany and Ireland.

I'm bumming now that Sam Adams Scotch Ale is now lost.

Atomic68, you are the true individualist in this crowd!!!!

Kinda don't think I'm gonna have to do any statistics here. The key takeaway is pretty clear. But more responses would be great.

Just remember, there is only one thing better than food ...

... free food.

Same goes for beer.

hey atomic, all the beer I listed (except Yeungling, which is about the same) costs less than your Coors or Miller. I'll split a six of Schmidt with you any time.

Thanks. I appreciate that and model my life on that. Theres way toomany pre programmed zombie/clones among us trying to keep up with the Joneses..... I dont care what any one thinks about me so long as Im not doing any thing illegal or immoral. For example:
I LIKE NASCAR.

Now Heres a boring beer story from last night.
I was drinking a Corona-yuck- with a 20 year old Female neighbor last night and i told her how I remembered about 20 years ago when WAAF 107.3 (probably the best hard rock station in the country) used to have a sunday morning talk show. The guest that day was a total no name representing a new beer he was coming out with. It was Jim Koch (Prn:Cook) from Sam Adams and the rest is history. (I think the regular Sam Adams Tastes like soap, anyone else?)
