I'm a great fan of German beers, though there's nothing wrong with a an english pub or belgium beer.

Close, that's Radeberger. Konig is row 5, column 4.
Looks a lot alike though, but has a differently shaped top label.

count me in, my favorites are just about anything from the magic hat brewery, sam adams cherry wheat and winter lager for standard day to day stuff

other then those, i've tried tons of stuff, rogue, dogfish head, so many good beers so little time

also starting to brew my own, first batch is fermenting now, a basic lager, we'll see how it turns out

You should be able to find Australis, it's brewed in a pub in Auckland, New Zealand. I've only read about it in Michael Jackson's Great Beer Guide (500 Classic Brews), DK Publishing, 2000 North American Edition.

I myself am an avid collector of vintage ales and lagers. I like 'em old
I have a modest collection at the moment, all of them set to age. Orval for 5 years, Chimay Blue for >5 years, Sami Claus for >10 years, Thomas Hardy Ale for >20 years, Sierra Nevada Bigfoot >10 years, Rogue Old Crustacean >?, to name only a few.
For me the best thing about beer is how much it matures over time. But their are many beers that are best when fresh, Sierra Nevada Pale Ale, Hoegaarden, Sami Smiths, Bittburger, Staropramen, Budvar (the original Bud), again to name only a few.

Geoff: How about Black Sheep's Yorkshire Square Ale? Ever try that one?

One of my favorite things! Last night I had some Ale Smith IPA and Trappistes Rochefort 10. Both were amazing.

Today my boss gave me a pint of Stone Imperial Russian Stout, one of my all-time favorites.

No I haven't. I've had a few other beers from Black Sheep, but I'll make a point of trying that one when I get home.

Those vintage beers sound very exciting, by the way. I can imagine the expectation when you finally crack one open after ten or twenty years!

It ain't easy! The best I've done so far was to age a Sami Claus for 10 years. A buddy and I split a '95 at Xmas '05. It was like being hit in the head with a larg gold brick

Count me in.

My favorite is whatever I'm holding at the moment.

Living in the boonies as I do makes enjoying fine beer a challenge. While I'd love a greater selection, with enough legwork, I can usually come up with Guiness and Bass Ale. Bass is my personal favorite tough. Just love the flavor. Can't stand the watered down brew most around my town are drawn to like Bud Light and Coors Light. Blech!! Talk about a watered down disappointment! Give me body, a rich dark color and some TASTE! If I can't find Bass or Guiness, it's sipping Tequila or Vodka for me.

Guinness abroad is always nice...here, though, I have to go for Summit Maibach. ^__^ Local brews FTW! Ah, and there's a brewing company in St. Paul that has something like 50 different recipes for you to choose from; you go with a few friends, and pay ~180 for a keg of really kick-ass beer (broken into 22 oz. bottles). Unfortunately, I haven't been able to get my friends to go back yet. Yargh.
