Shiner Bock is great. The brewery is only about 70 miles from my house. We did the brewery tour thing there once.

What are some good Aussie brews?

IPAs, especially from Avery, New Belgian, & Odell, all of which are excellent Colorado micro brewies. Another favorite is Mirror Pond from Deschutes brewery in Oregon.

Well that's just plain offensive. I'm a woman and I definitely know more beers than those. Most of the beers on the list are basically the same tasteless, watery junk enjoyed by frat boys who are just trying to get as drunk as they can as cheaply as they can.

But as someone else said, there are really too many to make a comprehensive list. The best you could do was make a list of types (IPA, Porter, Stout, Belgian Wheat, etc) but I suppose most people don't even know their beer well enough to know what they like.

My favorite type is IPA, followed by stout (but those are like dessert, it's hard to have more than one) and my favorite beer period is probably Good People IPA, made by a local brewing company.

People should really try out some regional breweries, I've had better beer from local places than any national brand. All they ever have is a logo and watery slosh. Even Guinness is too weak (though I hear there's a difference when you get it from the source).

Blue Moon. I like the seasonal brews they have. I recently got one, darker than I expected, made with Belgian Sugar, I am going to make a slow cooked pork, sauerkraut dish this weemend, and use the beer as the liquid, and serve the same beer with the pork. I think this will be an awesome pairing.

I do love Corona, yummy...with spicy tacos.

Bud light, with a burger..cant go bad there

Your mid-range mass produced stuff like Bud Light / Budweiser is $6.99, here.

PBR / Natural Light is $4.99, which I classify as cheap.
I made an Error I paid $9.99 for a six pack and yes that is a bit pricy for beer. I jus found my receipt LOL

I don't drink a lot of beer at home, but I always buy the good stuff. Love going out to micro breweries...geez, I miss living in Oregon. I usually order a Hefwiezen, or other pale ale when I go out. Yum.

Fosters is Australian for beer only in the USA. Real Australian beers - try VB (Victoria bitter) or Toohey's Black Ale. The only problem is I think you have to travel to Australia to get it.

When I can find a six of Tyskie, I will try it. I have read it's a decent Polish brew.
