I love beer! It’s a staple around here, we don’t drink it every night but we always have it on hand. I usually drink Heineken Lights, and when I’m having a splurge moment, I’ll get Coronas. R likes to try new things all the time, so he’ll get whatever new local beer is on display at Whole Foods.

THIS is my kind of post! I’m not a snob about it but I LOVE good beer. Nothing better than an IPA in my opinion… I like my beers strong but not dark, definitely more hoppy than wheaty. I like a few IPA’s as my fave… the Upland Brewery Dragonfly IPA, and Boulder Beer’s Mojo IPA as well… and it’s not TOTALLY an IPA but Three Floyd’s Gumballhead. YUM! I wish we could afford to have great beer at the reception 🙁

I love Amber Bock.  Fat Tire is my favorite, but they don’t sell it here.

My favorite is Rogue Juniper Pale Ale which you can’t get here really unless you go to a specialty store. It’s bomb, though.

@Jelly Bean (ps my first and middle name rhyme with Jelly Bean… I hate easter!) We JUST got Fat Tire here in Indianapolis! It’s a good drinkable beer, full flavored, we got the Future Mother-In-Law into it so she always has it at her house which is great 🙂 Although she usually calls it “FLAT tire”… nice.

@bvig I probably like them a little hoppier than Fiance but what we found is that with IPAs, the more local/random, the BETTER! I have yet to find a real “mainstream” beer that has any great IPA qualities. I like to avoid national brands like that when possible just to try what is out there… and try to support local breweries (like, Upland’s Dragonfly is brewed in Bloomington, IN, where Fiance went to college!)

Ohhh, great post! I’m not a beer snob by any means, but I LOVE a good beer. I prefer wheat beers, especially german or belgian beers.

There’s a brewery in Cooperstown, NY, called Ommegang, which makes phenomenal beglian style beers. I love their Witte and Rare Vos.

My favorites that you can find most places are:

Sam Adams Boston Ale (harder to find, you typically see the Lager but not the Ale); Sam Adams seasonal brews; Blue Moon; Magic Hat… There are many. I don’t drink often, but some nights there is nothing better than a cold beer.

Right now – Magic Hat Lucky Kat IPA — and the bottle is pink ;o)

But in the summer, I love some Brooklyn Summer Ale.
