Sierra Nevada Resilience.

Sierra Nevada is having this brewed at places across the nation.

As some know Sierra Nevada is in Butte County, home of the Camp Fire.

Support if you can.

Fosters.

I kid, I kid! Fosters tastes like...well.....everything that tastes horrible on the planet, that is thrown into a vat, fermented, and then strained through an 80-year-old male's sweaty underpants.

Corona has been my go-to brew since 2003. It's clean, refreshing, but HAS to be drunk ice-cold, or it tastes like every other beer, (except Fosters).

This thread reminded me -

I was in NJ a couple months ago visiting friends during the NJ Run for the Fallen.

One of the stops was the Backward Flag Brewing Company in Forked River. Veteran owned, GREAT beer. Highly recommend if you're in the area.

Not a stout or dark beer fan. Nor am I an IPA fan. But, Moab Brewery makes a Porcupine Pilsner that I really like.

Corona? Good god man. Find real beer some place.

At least raise the bar to Negro Modelo. If you are going to stick with a Mexican beer.

I am Welsh/Irish, and I have always considered Guiness to be one of the basic food groups.

I don't drink it for the national origins. I just like the clean crisp taste of it.

And when it comes to buying beer in Australia, finding a decent-tasting beer that can be purchased everywhere is....difficult. Most Australians like beer that kicks them in the nuts, tastes like dirt, and makes them obese and pasty-faced by midnight.

In other words, most people in this country drink beer for the effect, not the taste.

When you pour your beer in OZ, does it swirl clockwise or counter clockwise? That could be part of the problem.

North Coast Brewing - Scrimshaw IMO, it's one of the best tasting, smoothest Pilsners I've ever tried.

Melvin Citradamus, you have to be careful with this one because it goes down smooth but is 9.5%

The only time I've poured beer out of the toilet is when I threw it up.

The last time from very hazy recollection ended up with me asleep while holding tightly onto the toilet in the female's toilets at Jabiru Police Station, after NOT drinking Corona.

And I was facing counter-clockwise...

Whats with all the hate on Corona, gotta agree with NoFear I like Corona a lot especially on a hot summer day grilling some seafood and steaks. Have to have the lime and occasionally add some salt, careful with the salt, if you add it straight in it can foam over.

Tried this tasty beer in Jerez de la Frontera. It took a couple of sips to adjust to the aftertaste, but, I enjoyed and the more I drank the better the taste.

North Coast makes some fine beers. Their Red Seal Ale(a hoppy amber/red ale) and Old Rasputin(Imperial stout) are great examples as well.

I like my beer to taste like beer, my whiskey to taste like whiskey, and my women to taste like women. If yo have to put fruit in any of the 3 to make it taste better, than you're tasting the wrong one.
Although I have been known to eat a strawberry and chocolate taco or two in my day.
