I live in Maine and we have a great craft brewery scene.I like local beers like shipyard , Gearys, grittys, I also love Sam Adams all there beers are great.I also love.dog fish had they have A 90 minute IPA that is amazing. As for cheap beer I drink coors light mostly.fir international beers I love red stripe Jamaican lager, Heineken, corona, Molson, Guinness, Stella, I love love love unfiltered what beer asks heiffenweisen (spelling?) To be honest I'm a true fan off all beers be it lagers ales stouts I love beer
We part plan US holidays around beer availability! The craft beer scene in the UK is improving but the variety and depth in the US is great. For European beers it tends to be Belgian trappist style - just love them. Not so keen on the lager types though some of the German beers are definitely an exception.
My first job when I left school was analysing beers! Part of that training was a three month beer tasting course which when you are 16 was amazing. Many a time went home pidrunk through work! Disapproving looks from my Mum but my Dad was kind of pleased!
Have tried (and liked) La Chouffe but a little expensive in the UK (and because of the tax most beers) which is why this time next week I will be in France stocking up for personal use (though have to share with the wife who also loves beer). Love Leffe draught even more than the bottled.
Looks like Maine may have to be on our holiday list!
when i was younger i also drank like everyone else but i quickly stopped because i was resistant to the effects of alcohol ,i liked the rather strong alcohol such as brandy ( cognac) or whiskey ,for i liked the beer Kronenbourg or the beer of demon ( a local beer) http://www.saveur-biere.com/fr/biere-bouteille/77-biere-du-demon.html .
but generally i'm not a drinker of alcohol ....
