What is the beer that just hits the spot? I think I have tried everything under the sun (at least what I can get my hands on at a distributor in PA) but I keep coming back to Molson Canadien. If anybody has got anything that tops this, i'd love to hear it....

Hi, jeff. I couldn't vote because I like a different type of beer at different times. I guess my favorite beer is the icey, cold one.

Have you ever had the "genuine" Molson as opposed to the imported? Even better.

My fav is Labatts Blue....followed by all the great micro-brew beers in the area. Shorts Magician or Huma luma licous are great when I am in a Hop mood.

I also adore Leininkugels Original and Northwoods Lager

I have, but I just keep going back to the imported....just crisp and perfect.

There's just something about Canadian beer. First hubby and I used to zip across the border, pick up a case of Blue Light and zip back. Of course, we always reported it to customs. wink, wink, nudge, nudge!

How about Sam Addams?

I didn't vote either...I'm not sure the difference between a micro, and a local brew....

Living in Wisconsin, it's well-nigh impossible to pick *just one* favorite beer. We're greatly blessed with gifted brewmasters here, and we do our best to support as many of them as we can (and still function, of course).

At the Great Dane Brew Pub in downtown Madison, my spouse's preferred brew is the Texas Speed Bump, a nice hoppy pale ale. I like their Stone of Scone Scotch Ale, though it kicks me in the pants - at my age, I don't have much head for beer any more.

The Ale Asylum is a microbrewery on the east side, close to where we live, and they make a Hop-A-Licious that my spouse really enjoys. I like their Mad-Town Nutbrown Ale a lot.

Capitol Brewery out in Middleton does some really, really fine beers. They have a wheat beer called Island Wheat (made with wheat grown on Washington Island at the tip of Wisconsin's Door County) that is about the only wheat beer I like. And their Blond Doppelbock is outstanding.

Lake Louie Brewery does micro-micro brews, so small that they're hard to find in the store sometimes. I am particularly fond of their Warped Speed Scotch Ale, while the spouse prefers their Arena Premium Pale.

Furthermore Beers is a relatively new addition to Wisconsin's breweries, but we think they have a bright future. Their Knot Stock is a lovely pale ale, infused with a bit of black pepper - really! - that is deceptive in the way it sneaks up on you. Fatty Boombalatty is a creative approach to a Belgian ale that is quite fine.

And of course, Leinenkugel's is the always-safe Wisconsin standby. I really like Leinie's Red and their Oktoberfest. The spouse likes those, as well as their Berry Weiss in the summertime.

No, I really can't pick just one. Some of those are micros, at least a couple are micro-micros, while Leinie's is close to nation-wide, but they're all Wisconsin, and they're all wonderful.
