Don't limit it to what we can find here. And descriptions about the taste, where you found it, etc would be most welcomed!

Boulevard Pale Ale, from Boulevard Brewing Co in Kansas City

Some of my friends own the brewery. Just a very different beer.

Refreshing, clean, a bit citrusy . . . have never had anything quite like it!
Nothing like am ice cold Heineken

I've gone through various stages in my 3 decades of beer drinking.

I started out in high school drinking "IC Light" (Iron City). Hated it, but when you're a high school kid looking for a buzz, anything will do.

College was more of the same. Still hated the taste of beer, but choked down more cheap swill like Mickey's Malt Liquor.

Graduated from college and moved to TX where I started drinking Coors light. Still hated beer.

Then one day the clouds parted and I tried a Paulaner Hefeweizen. This was back in probably 1992 or so. I couldn't believe it. To think I had wasted 10 years drinking such crap. I started going through my local grocery store, trying all of the imports and microbrews.

First I went through the Guinness stage. . . . of course everyone just discovering beer tries it and loves it. Then I started on the fruity English ales like Bass, Newcastle, and Fullers. Then I went through the American "hop bomb" stage where I wasn't satisfied unless the beer was so bitter that it burned the skin off my tongue. Next stage was the German beers with their sophisticated and clean malt character. Now I am on a Belgian kick. The more funky the better. Give me brettanomyces or give me death

My favorite beers now are from De Proef Brouwerij in Belgium (De Proefbrouwerij). This guy is a true artist.

LOVE British ales!!! Of what we can get here in the States, Boddington and Guinness are my favorites. But my absolute FAVORITE, that I enjoyed in Yorkshire, England, was Worthington Creamy Ale. Wow, is that stuff good!!!! Wish we could get it here!!!!

I'm sitting on a bottle of Ch-Chuck, but I've had it before. Beer aficionados raved over it but I found it a bit wanting. So I'm holding on to it in case I get active in beer-trading again so I can use it for trade-bait to get myself something equally rare.
