    I am an admittedly proud beer geek. Homebrew some, but mostly just collect and drink. Any others out there and what are your favs?

    I prefer to be called a beer conniseuier (sp?), and I like whatever is in season. During the cold months I like the dark beers, porters.
    I like wheat beers.

    My favorite to have at anytime is Smithwicks.

    I prefer draft. The fresher the beer the better.

    Agree...during the winter, I like Porters and Stouts. Right now, I'm all about the IPA's. Like Bell's Hopslam (imperial IPA) or even locally Hop Project. As far as draft, fresher is a bit of a misnomer. Many craft beers are as fresh as taps IF the beer store is good about returning older beer. Of course the dark beers you can actually age. The only issue with draft is you have to depend on the place actually cleaning their taps on a regular basis, but if it is a good place, they probably do that.

    Hmm... You like wheat beers and Smithwicks... ever tried Erdinger Weissbier dark? Nice dark wheat beer with no bitter aftertaste.

    I agree about the tap situation, Vol.
    It's seldom I drink at establishments anymore. I have a favorite beverage store with a wide selection, and if they don't have what I'm looking for they will order me a case on request...and I will look for Erdinger, Tuck. I don't remember seeing it.

    I have some quart bottles of ale made by Belgium monks, and it's a living ale still fermenting in the bottle. I've had them about a year, says you can age them up to 5 years and drink them out of a chilled goblet.

    Been to McCreary's many, many times. One of my daughter's middle school friends is a waitress there. Great food, good beer. I tend to lean towards the craft beer stuff, but if looking for English/Irish stuff, great place to go.

    Love me some Belgian beer. Like I said, I am into craft stuff right now because they are more "out of the box", but for tried and true, can't go wrong with the overseas stuff.
