The ones with the funniest commercials featuring the most scantily clad women, of course.  Next question.

My vote for best beer (if you can find it): Simba.

I'm also very fond of Franziskaner Hefe-Weisse (again, an "if you can find it" beer):

Dead Guy Ale.

I usually go for Drop Top, Mirror Pond or Alaskan Amber.

Beamish was the best in history, until Heineken happened to it. I've been searching for a new favorite ever since. Latitude 33 is decent, but not perfect. Session Lager is the best "drinking all day" beer I've ever found, and for a good price.

New Glarus Spotted Cow or almost anything from New Glarus brewery.

You task me... you task me, subby! Limiting me to a single choice? Heresy!
2013-09-28 05:40:59 PM  
Man on a Mission: I'll bet there aren't more than two of us who've had a Simba (from the DRC).  So the other Farkers can't contradict us.

But I also like Primus and Tembo.

Great Lakes's Burning River.
2013-09-28 05:41:36 PM  
Interstate 6.0 Ale.  Brewed in Ohio and bottled in New York.  Yes it's homebrew and yes it's what happens to be in my hand at present.
2013-09-28 05:41:37 PM  
My current favorite is Sixth Glass by Boulevard.

It's also "Ask a Stupid Question Day".

The best beer in the land is the one in your hand.

Anderson Valley Bourbon Barrel Stout.

holiday taken care of.
2013-09-28 05:47:02 PM  
Best bee for what? Drinking all day or just having a few? I'll split the difference and stick with Guiness.
2013-09-28 05:47:51 PM  
I just made a Hefeweizen today, first time I've done this in over a year, nice

If you can't be with the beer you love, love the beer you're with.

/anything hoppy and flavorful
2013-09-28 05:50:00 PM  

fusillade762: I usually go for Drop Top, Mirror Pond or Alaskan Amber.

Too big a risk of this if you ask me:

However, if you don't say the rhyme, you may be safe.
2013-09-28 05:52:53 PM  
Dark Lord Imperial Stout from Three Floyds.
2013-09-28 05:53:00 PM  
I picked a damn good day to be born, it seems.  And even better that it was over 21 years ago, so that I can observe properly!

/Sam Adams Octoberfest - slightly won out over Shed Mountain Ale
//Heady Topper is always a good decision, too

For a mass produced beer I'd nominate Molson Canadian. For a craft beer my choice is Honey Brown from Dundee Brewing co.
2013-09-28 05:59:33 PM  
I'd have to say that the best beer is highly dependent upon the circumstances. However, one if my favorite go-tos is Boulevard Unfiltered Wheat.
2013-09-28 06:00:55 PM  
I've seen them hyping the shiat out of Redd's Strawberry "Ale", so I tried some.

It is NOT beer. It is a wine cooler with beer-colored food coloring added.
2013-09-28 06:02:50 PM  
Oh, and I have a Maudite that's been hanging around my fridge for he past couple months, but that's not for me. Gift for a friend who doesn't have enough room in his own fridge yet.
2013-09-28 06:04:26 PM  
Really subby? Not only are you asking farkers to agree on something, but you're asking them to agree on beer? You'd have better luck herding a thousand cats across the country.

2013-09-28 06:10:38 PM  
Robbie Burns' Scotch Ale from the Pumphouse microbrewery
or I'll settle for Alexander Keith's IPA for my everyday drinkin'
2013-09-28 06:12:30 PM  
Stone IPA. Next question.

Belhaven Scottish Ale, (in cans, please)
or Laughing Lab from Bristol Brewing Company..

Can't go wrong with a good hefeweizen either.

/haven't had a drink in 6 months.
//not by choice
2013-09-28 06:22:41 PM

2013-09-28 06:25:14 PM  
Sudwerks Dopplebock (rare)

MMMMmmmmm My favorite beers, can't go wrong with either
2013-09-28 06:30:20 PM  
My friend makes it. You can't have any. So there.
/costs too much to be a big production anyway, who's gonna line up for $6/glass beer?
2013-09-28 06:31:48 PM  
As for best beer, it depends a lot on what you like.

For me, it depends on other things, too, like the situation.


For the daily drinker, one that you'll indulge in semi-often without blowing your budget, I have to go with this:
Now, for seasonal options, I mentioned what I'm drinking today already, and I'll admit, that's one of my favorite times of August - when the Marzens get some play.  Harpoon's is also quite good, and Blue Point's, while lighter in color, is also a solid choice.

For going out/special occasions, there's no such thing as a good/best beer.  Usually, if you try something new and local, you'll have a decent chance of enjoying it.  Then again, best part about VT: so many local brewers/new brews to try.

/Was that post too reasoned?

From their website:  "Dark Lord Beer - A demonic Russian Style Imperial Stout, brewed with Intelligensia coffee Mexican vanilla, and Indian sugar this beer defies description, available one day a year in April at the brewery, Dark Lord Day. "

Somehow its perpetual unavailability makes me wanna drink it that much more.

Black Diamond Brewery....... THE TWELVE.
