    I like Guinness, but I prefer Ale. I am really thinking about Chimay. Very strong. Bottled by trapist monks.

    Guinness is by the best Stout, less calories than a pint of milk too. Also full of anti-oxidents. Goose Neck lager is pretty good also, but pretty hard to find. I haven't drank in over two years now, and man do I miss Guinness, I work in a sports bar, and I have to move the Kegs around all the time, so damn tempting.

    I dont drink beer as often as I do red wine. I consume a couple of glasses a week even during times of dieting and I don't feel I gain any weight because of it. Actually, as weird as it may seem I feel healthier when I have a couple of glasses of red wine weekly.

    I definitely think a glass or too once in a while is perfectly fine, however I am watching my father kill himself with alcohol, and really hate the person he has become thanks to it. I always have had self control with it, but I don't like to play Russian Roulette with something like addiction and have it beat me. Just to clarify I am not bashing any one that drinks or looking down upon them, if you can do it in moderation I say go for it.

    Go with a good German beer. Warstiener and Bitburger are 2 that come to mind. Very good and very smooth.

    Sorry to hear about your dad pmiller. As you say, moderation and self control are key.

    I used to drink all the time and every day.Even by myself,and I would still get straight up drunk.I did this for years.I guess about 4 yrs.I don't get people who push it too far and don't quit,or can't quit.My Dad drinks everyday but he doesn't get wasted or anything.Still drinks way too much and I just don't get it.Theirs no point in doing it,or reasoning behind it.I understand socially,but not everyday.I had to go to AA for probation before and these people are crazy!I guess it's the addiction though.Maybe i'm lucky,or just have lots of willpower with a combination of love and drive for BB'ing.Idk.I don't fight cravings or anything,and I'm telling you I got drunk prob 98% of the days out of four years and would start as early as possible.I started buying two 30 packs of keystone ice to give my buyer breaks from going to the liquor store with me.Thats also why I bought ice cause it lasted longer.

    This is embarrasing to say,but I started pissing the bed alot.It started very little,then it got out of hand.I'm talking big puddles and often.From what I have read it's being in basically an alcahol induced coma,and your body can't wake you up.Some people have died from things like freezing to death because of this.Even with this obvious sign of a problem,along with getting wasted alone,and alcahol caused legal trouble(twice)I still quit without AA and no cravings.I will drink socially from time to time too,without pissing the bed thankfully.I haven't drank in about 4 months though.

    Definitely! Every Sam Adams Seasonal (Winter Ale, White Ale, and Oktoberfest) are all delicious.. their Hefeweizen is great too -- really a great line of brews that get's criticized too often..

    yup yup,
    get it on tap though, if you're going for the botte, get the extra stout. serious carbs for bulking, lol half kidding since I don't know how 'empty' beer calories are when they're good quality beer as opposed to corn/rice water like bud, coors, etc.

    Excellent choice. Newcastle and Guinness are probably my favorites, but I'm perfectly content pounding a 40 of OE.

    These are all great beers you guys have listed, I've had all of them. How about Sierra Nevada Pale Ale, Anchor Porter, anything by Dogfish Head or Rogue? I have one for you, you'll dig it if you like darker beers. I give you "Rasputin Russian Imperial Stout". It's got a twang to it. I found it at ABC liquor in College Park(Orlando). It is gooood. Google it, I'm getting the T-shirt it's sooo good. Pour it in a rounded glass and just smell it.

    The Florida guys:I'm ashamed of you! No Yuengling shoutouts?
    If you're on the East coast, try Yuengling. It's the bestest ever!
    Shiner-Bock is the "Texas" beer.
    It's good, but it's no Yuengling.

    If you're on the East coast, try Yuengling. It's the bestest ever!
    Shiner-Bock is the "Texas" beer.
    It's good, but it's no Yuengling.
    Can't say i really like it man. I'm more of a irish/german beer guy.

    While I was at Ft.Bragg I used to drink Yuengling a good but. It was like $6 for a twelve pack of bottles. It was okay, but I swear there was a higher alcohol contrent in there than the normal piss water 4%.

    All dark beers,ales,malt liqour,and lagers have a higher alcahol content.At least every one I have ever seen.The alcahol content drops a hair with light beers compared to their original as well.

    I know, I'm talking about Yuengling Light specifically. I should have been more clearer on that one.
