As it was 8 years ago, cold and free still top the charts, but since then I have a fixation with Jack O' Lanterns, a mix of Hard Cider and Pumpkin Ale; last place I had one was at the Heartland Brewery in New York.
Brooklyn Lager, Heineken Special Dark, Smithwicks

Originally posted by ekedolphinI can't stand the taste of real beer, but I'm a root beer connoisseur. I love A&W, Barq's, Mug, Faygo, IBC and certain store brands, and can tell you exactly how they all differ in taste.
Fav Cheap beer would probably be Carlton Draught. It's inoffensive enough, especially when ice cold during the warmer months. It's also ubiquitous enough that every pub will have it on tap, so you can order without having to think about it. It's also often the only supplied beer at sporting venues like the MCG. Cheap commercial Lager.
Fav commercial beer that I buy for home would be Cascade Premium Lager, or James Boag's Premium. Both beers are pretty much identical. Crisp Lagers from Tasmania.
Fav Boutique beer: I really like Young & Jackson's Naked Ale. It's an on tap only beer, but you can only get it from one pub in the world, so it requires a dedicated trip when you have a craving.
One year I went to Ozzfest and had to suffer through Linkin Park, Papa Roach, Crazy Town, Mudvayne and Slipknot just to see Black Sabbath. I mean, I guess it was worth it, but that was an incredible amount of suck beforehand.
