I am drinking a Lagunitas Little Supmin' Wild and it is fantastic. Had one outside by a fire with my wife after a nice rib eye and asparagus supper. Now I'm having another as we prepare to watch Breaking Bad.

My favorite is free beer, just kidding, Coors is what I drink most of the time.
Right now I am trying a Redds Apple Ale, not sure about it.

I only drink lager. I'll have an ale now and then but I prefer the crispness of a lager. When I'm traveling outside of the country I'll always drink the local lager. But the lagers in the USA are horrendous. The big ones anyway, and that's what's mostly on tap at bars and pubs.

anyone have a good American lager to recommend?

Not sure if they distribute to IL but Oregon's Full Sail Brewery makes a pretty good and not too pricey lager called Session.

Full Sail Session | Premium American Lager

They come in little 11 oz. stubby bottles (looks like Red Stripe but NOT an "island lager" taste thankfully), nice refreshing year-round beer.

In the cooler months, I like to get their Black Lager.

With very few exceptions, I'm not a fan at all of over-hopped IPAs. IMHO, it's a trend that I hope goes away soon. It reminds me of the hot pepper sauce thing where all the focus is on one aspect of the product (well, two aspects if you count silly names), not an enjoyable balance.

One I do like is Lagunitas.

Hmmm..."not like your typical fall pumpkin beers"...I think that is certainly a good thing since I think most of them taste like artificial extract. I'll have to try!

Speaking of pumpkin beers, Alewerks down in Williamsburg, VA makes a great "pumpkin" ale. I used quotes because after talking to their brewers I found out that they actually use roasted butternut squash to give it its unique flavor...mum's the word as they told me not to tell! haha.
