    I do like a cold Corona from time to time (like it it's really a hot day), in the same way that I still drink fizzy drinks form time to time.

    But it ain't beer.
    It was fine before advertisement, and general public ignorance, drove the price through the roof.

    I have seen 6 packs in some convenience stores in the city going for $10-$12 each!!! FOR CORONA!!!

    It is a pisswater ricey-beer. I am not sure if they use rice in the brew liek Bud does, but it has that same cheap "filler" taste.

    I was REALLY happy that I found some better quality beers in Japan when I went. I was worried that all I would find would be their "Bud" clones. The Dark Yebesu was pretty good, and one other was also pretty good as well. But being there for such a short time, you really can't find the places that might sell the better stuff.

    As for "southern" beers (Mexican, Puerto Rican, DR, etc), Presidente and Pacifico are pretty good. Better, and cheaper, than Corona.


    Me, personally, I kind of like two types of beer the most. First is the brown/amber ales with a hint of almond like aftertaste. They can be stronger or lighter, but generally have a smooth finish and a nice aftertaste that stays with you.

    Second, the heartier stouts. A good draw of Guiness is one of them, but definitely overrated. Some of the oatmeal stouts are pretty good as well, and I think Sam Adams has a dark chocolate stout that is really good as well. Brooklyn's dark chocolate is not bad, but a little bitter.

    But just because they are my favs does not mean I do not like tryingotehrs. The only ones that I do not care for too much are the weiss or wheat beers. Too dough-ey for my taste.

    The only ones that I have SERIOUSLY disliked were the smoked beers. Tasted like drinking a pureed sausage.... (probably GREAT for cooking though!!!!).

    On that note.

    Cheers!
    Salut!
    Prost! (add your own national saying, I am always curious as to what others are out there!!!)

    Well, I love Corona and Budweiser and I'm sticking to it! How about Odle English. St. Ides or the ultimate "bum beer" Steel Reserve? Heh, that will make you grow hair on your chest.

    OmegaMan, geez!

    You are labeling all the "Get drunk quick" beers out there!

    You forgot Colt 45, Mickeys, Elephant and a bunch of others.

    What you do not realize is that beers like Monster Ale have more alcohol than any of the ones you have mentioned, and, better still, they TASTE better.

    Monster is about 11.5%

    Barleywine style, in general, is usually 10% to 15% alcohol content. But teh taste is usually much heavier than a pilsner.



    As for Corona, save your $$ and go for the mexican/PR beers we have been mentioning. Unless you really like their commercials and want to give them $$. And Bud? Seriously! Quit that while you are ahead!!!!!

    I know, I am just giving you a shortcut man.

    If you are looking for something stronger, there is better tasting stuff that sells for about the same price per oz of actual alcohol in the drink.

    St. Ides was one of our "warm ups" in college. It tasted like crap and looked like it had little flecks of paint in it. It got you buzzed, but that is not the only reason you should be going for beer!

    Now, after expanding my horizons a bit, I can never go back to the Frat-House brews (Knickerbocker and Olympia anyone). Not all fancy beers will cost you megadough! You just have to start looking further than the guy next door....


    PS, always look for a sale too!

    Those are some of my favorites too. I also like beers that are kind of hoppy.

    As far as beers with fruit flavors I was looking for some new ones for the summer, any recommendations?

    ^Have you tried Magic Hat #9?

    I'd strongly suggest New Belgium's Fat Tire Ale or Odell's 90 Schilling, two very delicious and popular beers out in Colorado, but I can't find them anywhere here. Has anyone? I would really like to find a bar that has either on tap.

    It's such an odd coincidence that you're asking this the day after you merged the nightlife/bar threads into one thread!

    You probably recall that Alonzo asked in Q&A about 'specialist' bars. He was getting some answers, and then you merged his topic with the other bar topics. I took great pains to fetch the new location of his question:

    http://www.wirednewyork.com/forum/sh...&postcount=186


    *Slightly wicked lightbulb moment*
    You're a preferred moderator, how about plucking out that question and the answers, and temporarily putting it back into Q&A with your beer question tacked on? (Not that I'd do such a thing -- then again, I'm not preferred by anybody yet.)

    Jeez, I'll tip my hat to OE. Ain't nothing wrong with that. I'll even top you with a nod to King Cobra. I tend toward snobbishness, but sometimes you just want to drink that junk. I'd take either of those over a Heineken pretty much any day of the week. And yes, I'm well aware that better beers than Heineken do exist.

    YarPivo is not bad too, I just prefer Baltika (with salty фисташки[fistashki]).

    I think you can get bottles of that over at the Old Dog near Bleeker and... Geez, I used to remember this. One block or two up from Houston........

    Great sandwiches (I recommend making one custom order from their ingrediebts, though) and an unusual selection of bottled beers available....


    Oops, sorry, you want on tap? I would try The Spring Street lounge (I think), the Collins Bar, or Blind Tiger. One of them may have it at one time or another (they rotate their selections).

    YYMV.
