    I like Saranac beers (I'm drinking one now) but, I hate their IPA. It's bitter and always tastes skunked. I buy the variety pack because it's all my supermarket carries. I always push the IPAs to the back of the fridge. But, I'm not an IPA fan any way. Love the black and tan though.

    If we're going international Belgian beers have it hands down. Followed by Young's and Fullers London Pride.

    I love a nice Harpoon IPA, and Sierra Nevada makes a nice pale ale. Its always fun to pick up a six pack of something you've never tried and see how it is.

    Mmm ... have you ever drunk any American micro-brewery beers? You'd be pleasantly surprised at how varied and imaginative they are.

    When it comes to big brewers, I'll take a Sam Adams over a Becks any day of the week (Haake-Becks is better anyway, I think) and Jever is like drinking soap suds.

    By the way, guys, why isn't this discussion in our sticky thread?

    You don't have to go that far for a great International. Molson Canadian Dry!

    No Jersey Selected

    Molson XXX is the best. 7.3% alcohol, sweet and tasty.

    If we are talking great Domestic Beers, i would have to vote for Natural Ice.

    Nothing has quite the same great taste and wonderful scent.

    If you are looking for a truly breahtaking beer drinking experience, you should try Natural Ice. You won't regret it.

    That takes me back to my college days. Mini fridges packed full of Natty Ice. Good times there...

    Spaaten Dark is pretty impressive, very good taste, 7.9% alchohol (it classifies as a malt liquor), and reasonably priced for a beer like this. But I can't get myself unaddicted to Guinness Draft (preferably real draught but bottles do when you don't want to pay $4/pint at the pub)...it just slides down so easy I find myself downing 6 and wishing I'd grabbed a 12er instead.

    Try any of these Beers... Dogfish head beers are phenomenal... especially their 90 minute IPA and Indian Brown Ale. Awesome stuff.
