So what are your favourite types and brands of beer?

I prefer darker beers myself, Guinness being my favourite. New Castle, Negra Modelo, Sapporo, and Flying Dog(Denver microbrew) are the only other beers I have ever tried and enjoyed.
Otherwise I have also enjoyed several ciders, Hornsby's Amber being my favourite. HardCore Black was one of my favourites as well but I think the HardCore Cider Co is gone now. Woodchuck and Wyders are decent.

I wore a PBR shirt today, haha. At least that brand is cheap enough for us young bucks.

I vote Hoegaarden and MooseHead.

Edit: Beer needs to be properly spelled.

I drink Keith's India Pale Ale in bars. At home, I stick with Lucky because it's the cheapest stuff that you can get around here. (I was astounded to find out that it's considered a 'top-line' beer in the US.)
If neither is available, I go with Pil.
(Every once in a while I'll have a half of Guinness because it looks so nice, but it tastes like it has been filtered through a moose.)

You can buy cases of Coors Light, Budweiser, Labbatt's and so on in Quebec for $22.50! Also, Hoegaarden is available in Quebec. It's hard to find here in Quebec. My buddy bought 30 of them in Quebec and since they only come in 6-packs it cost him$75!

Lately, Guinness has been tasting watered down to me. I've been enjoying some of the beers by the Great Lakes Brewing Co...Edmund Fitzgerald Porter, and Burning River Ale. I've also discovered one called Dead Guy Ale that I like (the bar I went to the last day I taught gross anatomy this year just happened to have it and it seemed a fitting beer to celebrate that class being done, so I tried it just for the name...really tasty); that's made by Rogue Brewing Co in Oregon. There's also Mountaineer Brewing Co., which is a WV brewery that has a nice Nut Brown that I like, but only bottled. I went to a bar that had it on tap, and it didn't taste very good on tap. Odd...usually beers are better on tap than bottled.

Best American macro brew= Yuengling lager (oldest brewery in the US too)

Other favs (all microbrews): Dogfish head 90 min IPA, Victory Hop Devil, Victory Storm King, Iron Hill Brewery's Pig Iron Porter, 3 Floyds Dark Lord Stout, anything from Yards.

I don't understand why hefewiezens have all of the sudden become all the rage. They are nasty. Any beer that needs fruit put in it=:yuck:

EnjoyED

I stopped drinking long before the micro-brew craze, but I always did like the finer dark beers. Heiney and Sapporo were both real good.

I don't put fruit in them. They are pretty low on my list of beers though, but they are considered a nice, light summer beer, so that's why they all come out this time of year.

I like the Oatmeal and Imperial Stouts and Taddy Porter. Their Nut Brown and Pale Ales are also very good.

Chimay Red and Blue are fine Trappiste Ales.

And I certainly enjoy Guinness Stout.

These are all some fancy beers - as for myself the American beers e.g. Budweiser makes me a bit sick ; they all seem to have somekind of a chemical aspect to them. It turns out that this chemical aspect may be related to hops which were chemically modified to treat the skunky property of beer. I've been drinking more and more of Heineken these days.

What I find hilarious in britain is going to a real ale bar where people order fosters and carling.

Guinnesss by far whenever I can get it then the New Belgiums' 1554, followed by the Fat Tire. In the summer I am partial to the Skinny Dip Ale.

Sam Smith's Oatmeal Stout is my favorite.

Red Rum
Brand Up from Brand brewery down in Wijlre in Limburg in the south of Holland about 2 km from the German border. Originally called Brand Up, relaunched a few years ago as Brand Urtyp and now reverting to its old name. A good German style hoppy, estery beer. And the region is nice too. Unlike the rest of the Netherlands, Limburg has hills! It's 26 deg C outside and I'm looking forward to one after work now!

Whilst I admit that Brand is on the short list for the Dutch brands, one should certainly not pass by Amstel 1870 too lighthearthy. But for the Twenthenaren there is only Grolsch, especially "Het Kanon", which certainly lives up to the expectations the name generates.

But I'd prefer a Pinot gris when it's 26 degrees.

I never drink beer, I don't like it very much. The only kinds I have tried that I have not minded are guiness and mgd. The only other ones I've tried are the usual coors, molson, pilsner...ect and i hate them.

American Macrobrewery: Sam Adams

But I drink lots of locals. Boulevard Brewing Company beers, and my favorite is the stout by Granite City Brewery.

The best beers and ales available locally come from a micro-brewery about 15 miles from here. Oak Pond Brewery makes some excellent brews. For the commercial brews, I'll pick up Guinness, Heineken, or Becks if I'm feeling flush and Molson Golden if I'm not.

He invented a wonderful drink, and he made it out of hops.
