    What Beers do Planners drink?

    Several posts in various threads have alluded to beer consumption by us planners.

    Fueled purely by my own curiosity, 3 questions:

    1. What is your "everyday" beer (ie, usually have some in the fridge, something you "could drink every day)?

    2. What is your "special occasion" beer (ie. what you'd order at a restaurant, something too expensive to buy regularly, etc)?

    3. All things being equal, If I could only have one kind of beer for the rest of my life it would be: ____________
    For me, #1 would be Micheloeb Light, #2 would be Anchor Steam or Franziskaner Hefe-Weissbier (I've only had it twice and it's amazing), and #3 would be Guinness.

    1. Tastes Great, Less Filling. With reasonable consumption and exercise, I'm back down to the size pants I wore in colege - WOO HOO! Who else can say that!?

    2. It's locally made, so I'm supporting the Milwaukee economy!

    3. It's affordable.

    Nope! I don't even refer to it as the "champaign of beers." Just MIller.

    It irks me that when I order a Miller one of six different beers may show up.

    PS Union made beer being swilled by a heartless Republican - that's your Compassionate Conservatism!

    1. MGD LIght or Linenkugels Original
    2. Guinness or any Pale Ale
    3. Guinness

    1) Moosehead Green Label for me; Keith's for everyone else

    2) Garrison Brewery or Kawartha Lakes Brewery Raspbery Wheat

    3) Garrison Brewery or Kawartha Lakes Brewery Raspbery Wheat


    But currently we are into hard ciders at our house. Stutz is the current favorite since Strongbow is often hard to get.

    Hmmm...I usually shift around a lot to try different beers, but I guess these would be my three:

    1. Alexander Keith's IPA - looking forward to the tour when I'm in Halifax...

    2. Amsterdam Blonde Lager (actually a Toronto beer...)

    3. Boddington Best Bitter (or any good English Bitter).

    Looking back at my college years:

    1. Milwaukee's Best
    2. Pabst (for special occasions only)
    3. Pabst

    1. Bud Lite
    2. Corona
    3. Either of the above

    I am a cheap date

    Also drink Zima (w/ lime of course), Bacardi Silver, and hard cider quite often.

    For what it's worth, there is a local bar (read: hole in the wall) in town that has THE best burgers and beer... 32oz of bud lite or miller lite in a frosty mug for $2.00, normal price. We tend to frequent the place!

    I *love* hard cider (I'm not big on beer really)... I used to get this really yummy pear cider when I lived in WA state. I think it was called Spanish Peaks. I haven't seen it up here in Alberta, but maybe the next time I'm in the States I'll bring some back home with me.

    When I was in college, I would drag out the crock pot my gramma gave me for one christmas, fill it with a gallon of fresh apple cider and most of a bottle of vodka - voila, autumn punch. yum. aka apple pie shots
