My personal favorites are:

-Belgium(not new belgium)
Westie 12 (or abt if cheap)
La Trappe quad
Cantillon (anything they make is gold)

-Sours
Anything Cascade makes.
Jolly Pumpkin Barrel House
Love Child 1 or 2 From Boulevard
Tar Tar from Bear Republic
Dissident from Deschutes

-High ABV limited releases
Avery Seasonals (The Beast-18%, Samuel-16%, Mephistopheles-18% , Uncle Jacobs17.xx%)
Firestrone Walker (Abacus/sucaba-12ish%, Parabola-13%)
Lost Abbey (Serpents Stout-12%, Angels Share-12%, Deliverance-13%)
Dogfish Head (Fort-16%, Worldwide Stout-18%, 120min IPA-18-20%)


What do you like?

westie 12 is awesome. Way better if you store it. Boss gave me one that was new, it was pretty good but not great. I had on that my brother aged for a couple years. Totally different, way better. More mild, much deeper flavor, so good.

Worldwide stout is awesome as well. My brother had the one that was 18% and the one that was 21%. Both were aged for like 5 years. Pours so so dark with very little head, tasted a lot like a port actually.

Favs are belgiums (quads are the best), IPAs (double IPAs if i can find them) and imperial stouts. I fucking love the brooklyn black chocolate stout and old rasputin. Problem is that the old rasputin is $20 for 4 here :(

Almost anything by Dogfish I like, Old Rasputin is great for imperial stout, one of my favorite non-imperial stouts is Lion Stout, almost any heavy Belgian beer I'll enjoy, love myself some Abey Ales such as St. Bernardus ABT12, Sam Adams is a great go to beer that can be found most places too. Other IPAs worth mentioning are Cigar City Jai Lai, Lagunitas Maximus, and Terrapin Hopsecutioner. Man I know there's so many others I'm forgetting but if it's a good quality craft beer I'll most likely enjoy it.

Although unless I'm out with friends, when I'm at home I'm drinking my homebrews, there's a thread further down about homebrewing that I started.

I like Keystone Light.

Keith Stone is so cool.

Belgium beer is the best, heavy or not.

Ive had a lot of the beers off your list.

Prefer lagers.

I hate to promote Canuckistani beer when there are so many great domestic craft brews, but you can never go wrong with Unibroue's La Fin du Monde. :drool:

Lagers are just to light for me, compared to heavier ales it tastes like water and yes I mean good German lagers too. Not to say I won't drink them, if I'm outside or it's hot I'm down for a good lager.

It's tasty stuff, almost has a rum-raisin flavor. Very spicy and christmas'y. The perfect winter-time beer in my opinion.

The process of lagering is more expensive than other styles too. Its like taking extra time and money to steal the soul of a beer.

Another honorable American brewery mention is Great Divide. All their yetis are very good heavy stouts.
