And by the way, I'll drink it, but Heineken isn't even in my top fifty.

I see you've got Red Stripe (I'll have a dark and stormy with Goslings instead) and left out Corona, which doesn't get high marks amongst the Beer enthusiast I know.

EDIT:

Guinness and Smithwicks are my two favorites.

If I'm drinking an American beer it's either Yards or Yuengling.

I'm not really a beer person, although I think the most highly regarded beer out of the beer I've ever had is Yuengling, and I didn't care for it really....  I would like to try some "better" beers though.

It seems the poll is full of more "refined" options though so I guess I'll be choosing Guinness. Though in the more upscale realm, Smithwick's would be my brew of choice.


Oh trust me, I've been drinking plenty of Natty and the Beast since I lost my job.  These are beers for an ideal world, however.

Maybe Obama will give us Americans free beer instead of healthcare.  Big smile

Out of these, I had to go with Guinness. Absolutely love the stuff. I do have a 6 pack of Hoegaarden in the fridge that I've been enjoying.

Actually, my favorite at the moment is Leinenkugel's Sunset Wheat (seasonal summer beer). It's got the most unique flavor that is sooooo smooth.

Chimay owns from this list.

After visiting Germany I have found that Widmer is kind of a chump weisbeir. Try these, they're available in the states from BevMo.

ha ha how is red stripe on here? lol 

being in college i usually only drink natty lite or busch lite but thats only because i cant afford classy beers like bud lite Wink

Ive had Guiness once before and it was absolutely disgusting and i dont really understand how its winning the poll! Stern Smile
i just got back from uptown and had a blue moon with orange. delicious! ill vote for that.
however the best beer ive had was from the great lakes brewery (from michigan) that was a pale ale. it was heavy so i wouldnt plan on going out and getting drunk off it but it was really really good with a steak. mmmm.

I´ve voted for Guinness, but I usually drink some average spanish beers - San Miguel and Mahou -, and from time to time the excellent Voll Damm (7,2º), an extraordinary brew with some dangers if you´re over 5 drinksWacko
