    My Favorite Beer

    My favorite beer is Bud Light Platinum. It is 6% alcohol, which is higher than most beers, and only 4.4 grams of carbohydrates. The low carbs matters to me because I'm diabetic.

    They did something right with Bud Platinum, I love it too. My favorite beer is Xingu, Brazilian beer. Goes really well with BBQ

      Discovered Xingu a couple weeks ago. Great beer.

    For everyday drinking I'm all about steam whistle Pilsner (from Ontario), but if it's a cold winter night, tough to beat big rock traditional (from Alberta), an English style Amber ale with some serious malt/toasted/caramel flavour.

      I'd love to find that. I'm a sucker for crisp, slightly malty English-style amber suds.

        It's a little on the bitter side for me.

        @ jqjeske1 It's a little on the hoppy side for sure, so I don't drink it by its self much, but it's still a great beer, if you're not drinking Guiness (the greatest beer ever).

        When I was in Baastan (the letter O doesn’t exist there) I made a holy pilgrimage to the original sam Adams brewery. They give free beer after the tour!

      I really like them all. Yeah, there are some bad ones; if I'm offered a bad beer at a party I just say "I'm not drinking tonight," and I get a diet soda. I can only have a max of two anyhow, more than that and I get irregular heartbeats that last for hours.

      My current favorite is Ithaca Flower Power. To me it tastes like a meadow of fresh grass smells. It's hoppy, in a really good way.

        The Silver Bullet when I'm in the mood for something light and Brooklyn 1 by Brooklyn Brewery when I'm in the mood for something strong (9.00% alcohol).

            Love it on tap when the barkeep knows how to pour a perfect Guinness Draught. It's a beautiful thing!

            My true fave! In an establishment, given a choice, I'll pretty much always choose Guinness, although less so if I'm eating.

          Right now I'm halfway through a sixer of Pilsner Urquell, and if you haven't tried it lately you should revisit it. In 2012 they changed from green bottles to brown, and instituted a "freshness initiative", packing the bottles in "fully enclosed secondary cartons that ship from the brewery within 30 days aboard refrigerated containers."

          The stuff's good, real good, a nice change from all the IPAs.

            Glad to hear they've switched to brown. I just can't get why brewers like Grolsch, Beck's and the like use green or clear.

          My favorite is Michelob, has been for a long time. Lately, though it seems to be falling out of favor with the public and it's getting hard to find.

            Regular Michelob is great, very smooth and, ehhh I guess I'll say buttery! And you're right, it's hard to find the regular. For a long time Coors regular was hard to find, now it seems to be gaining back some popularity.

            Of the big-time, big-name brews, I always thought Michelob was very underrated and stood well above the Millers, Buds, and Coors' of the world.

          #14
          I make my own so...
          For starters, IPA.
          After that, and especially when smoking meat, I go with more citrusy, like wheat beers. If I buy them, I go with Blue Moon.

          In the hotter weather I'll usually grab a lawnmower beer like Miller Lite. Sitting by the fire in the winter I like Newcastle Brown Ale.

            ANother stellar choice. I think I'm starting to sound like I love them ask, and. . .

            Never heard that term before "lawnmower beer" I like it. Going to use it when I'm ask for beer. I'm going to say to them beer or lawnmower beer.

        The Cool Kettle With The Hinged Hood We Always Wanted


        Napoleon’s 22″ Pro Cart Charcoal Kettle Grill puts a few spins on the familiar kettle design. In fact, the hinged lid with a handle on the front, spins in a rotary motion 180 degrees. It’s hard to beat a Weber kettle, but Napoleon holds its own and adds some unique features to make the 22″ Pro Cart a viable alternative.

        Comprehensive Temperature Magnet With 80+ Important Temps

        Amazingribs.com temperature magnet
        Winner of the National BBQ Association’s product of the year award. This 8.5″ x 11″ magnet contains more that 80 benchmark temperatures for meats (both USDA recommended temps as well as the temps chefs recommend), fats and oils, sugars, sous vide, eggs, collagens, wood combustion, breads, and more. Although it is not certified as all-weather, we have tested it outdoors in Chicago weather and it has not delaminated in three years, but there is minor fading.

        The Good-One Is A Superb Grill And A Superb Smoker All In One


        The Good-One Open Range is dramatically different from a traditional offset smoker. By placing the heat source behind and under the smokebox instead of off to the side, Open Range produces even temperature from left to right, something almost impossible to achieve with a standard barrel shaped offset.
