What is your favourite Beer? Your favourite type? Your first beer? Your worse beer? Best beer story?

I will start...

Current Favourite - Pale Ale by Moa
Favourite Style - IPA/Pils or hoppy lager
Favourite Stout - Guinness
Most drunk - Speights (but a fair bit of Export at the Captain Cook) as from Dunedin and a student of Otago Uni for 5 years
Worst Beer - Westlake beer from Hangzhou China
Go to beers - Carlsberg, Stella, Steinlager
Furthermost Brewery Visited - Heineken in Amsterdam
First Beer - Unsure...used to drink the froth off my Dad's beers from when my long term memory started at about 6 years old.

Best Beer Story - Went head to head when I has 23 with the man who got 3rd in the Shandong drinking competition when he was 22 some 30 years before. He wiped the floor with me, best learning experience of my life. Shandong is where Qingdao beer comes from and is the historic German province of China

Tsingtao is one of my favourite beers! Number one for me has to be VB, though.

I'm really digging Boundary Road Brewery's alcoholic ginger beer atm - great summer beer (and I don't even like ginger beer!)

I had a Tsingtao in Qingdao that was three days old...good times. Beer and seafood is fantastic

VB is a staple for me in Aussie and when I shop at New World

Favourite's have to be Monteith's Radler, and Heineken. Quite like Boundary Road Lawn Ranger. Really getting into Wild Side cider recently too.

 

The worst 'beer' I have had was something called bruer from Countdown. Bloody nasty stuff I had with a few mates at Uni. Never again...

 

The first memory for me would be taking one of my bros Tui's and drinking only a mouthful before tipping it down the sink, saying I would never be able to drink beer because it tasted so damn bad (I actually like Tui now!).

Stella Artois is my favourite in NZ and I had this Canadian beer that tasted better but I can't remember what it was called because I drank too much of it. Fav US beer is Miller Light/High Life or Negra Modelo.

Oh a friend of mine had a peanut-butter, chocolate and banana beer a month or so ago. Said it was the worst thing he has ever tasted. Think it's called Rogue Voodoo or something like that.

I can confirm it is indeed vile, horrendous stuff that. Rogue is the brewing company, their Double Chocolate Stout is a very tasty drop but pricey.

Fave beer Macs Gold
My old fave was Corona
Most drunk is Speights
Worst is Heineken

I don't like beer too much. If I drink more than say 2 it all starts to taste like gross water.

Don't really have a best beer story but it is funny when chicks buy me drinks because when I tell the guys later they don't believe me. But yeah, horny fat chicks will buy guys booze.

Most drunk is Double Brown. Ha.... I'm poor.

If I am feeling rich though, I'm a big fan of Asahi, or Becks was usually my quality beer go-to. Crown is really nice too....

It's the big beer thread, pretty sure homebrew fits in the description. I could do with some tips as I am thinking of starting up again.

My favourite is Tuatara Pilsner. Only time I've really drunk beer regularly was when I was doing my MA and we would go to the uni bar and they had $7 Tuataras for happy hour. Will also go for a Corona or Macs Gold.

I love Tuatara Pilsner, would take it over any other drink at the moment.

Yes to home brew stories and recipies/methods. My attemps were 22 years ago in those plastic brew kits. We used to leave it going until the bubbles stopped and it was potent. Always turned out replusive with a rubbery taste. We took out our friends dad who thought the stuff was nice. He got the sediment and was sick as a dog while massively hungover. Fun times
