Favourites are Cigar City Jai Alai, Stone Pale Ale, Sierra Nevada, Harpoon IPA, NOLA Hopitoulas. I'm sure you see a theme here.

Favorites include St. Arnolds (a Houston area micro brew that is excellent), Paulaner, Sam Adams. I tend to like Amber Ales to darker brews. There is no mass produced American swill that I will so much as touch really.

I realize this post is almost 4 years old, but beer is not distilled... Piraat is a good beer, though.

I say, drink what you like even if it tastes like water. Just don't buy into the gimmicks like vortex bottles or "triple hops brewed" (Most beer has hops added at 3 points in the process) or "frost brewed (how is that physically possible?) or a stupid can that tells you when your beer is cold enough to numb your palate so you can choke it down.

Carta Blanca out of a real GLASS bottle...just yummy when they are ice cold...No krappy aluminum cans for me where the beer taste like aluminun can especially when the beer has been a delivery truck in the hot sun all day. Then sits in a hot warehouse, loading dock again in a hot truck before it gets delivered to the store to sit a another hot storage area....well you get the picture. The worst offender to me is Heineken...has a skunky smell as do a lot of imported beers due to the senario mentioned above.

Actually, cans have a lining in them to prevent the metallic taste and heat doesn't skunk beer, light does.

Pretty close. Most beer has hops added early in the boil time to bitter down the malts and sugars. Most have another type of hops added near the end of the boil to add flavor. Some (but certainly not most) have some hops added after the wort is cooled and put into the fermenter. This is called "dry hopping" and is meant to add flavor. I do not have a clue what "frost brewing" could really mean.
