    Take time to list a favorite beer. Preferably something other than the mainstream beers.

    One of my favorite is Dogfish Head 90 minute IPA. 9% abv.

    They have another that is a 120 minute, it is 20 ibv, which is 40 proof. That is intense as hell.

    You know , I never venture out from the mainstream beers. I think I'm going to this holiday weekend and try a bottle of something and report back to this thread.

    I seriously recommend trying a Dogfish Head variety. They make all different kinds. Very well crafted.

    And Chuck, Guinness is the real deal. Good stuff, good stuff.

    Just for the trouble our friends went through to get us a few bottles. Tasted great, though.

    Brewed by the Trappist Abbey of Saint Sixtus of Westvleteren in Belgium. It's the number 12.

    I don't count on ever getting hold of another bottle again.

    Another good one. There are tons of microbrews in Wisconsin. Tons of breweries. Hence Milwaukee's team called the Brewers.

    I love a good black and tan made with Guinness and Bass Ale. The one Irish bar I go to puts a four leaf clover in the foam with the tapper. It's little things that make the night even better.
