Carib Strong was good stuff. I had a mega sad when it was discontinued
Things I think taste stink and nasty
Hurricane Reef
Blue Moon (rotten grapefruit)
IPAs in general
I used to like Coors Light until they started making it locally

Also, Peroni is pretty decent

Aka the Wife beater beer in England, pretty much the Carib and Budweiser of Belgian beers, i.e. a cheap AF beer that hits the spot.

I actually bought the stoaway but it broke in the freezer. Does pride myself on being open minded when coming to beers. Hoss i did even try the mondelo beer they does bring from Mexico( which is awful).....but Tommy's disappoint me, especially coming from a country that produces at least two quality beers

After cutting out the hard liquor, I went in search of a good beer. One of the first I tried was Miller Genuine Draft. Still a favourite.

- Carib & Stag draft are actually a pretty good drink. Get that from the tap in a frosty cold mug and you orn.
- Carib Pilsner & Coors Light... no thanks. Only end up drinking those after everything else finish, lol
- Hurricane Reef IPA kinda meh. The Pilsner that made a brief appearance was pretty good.
- Blue Moon is great but only so much of that I could drink one time. Will switch up after a few.
- Fullers Honeydew has a real enjoyable flavour. Always a good pick up.
- Old Speckled Hen is noice.
- Peroni is a good change up once in a while. Quite refreshing.
- Carlsberg... can't remember the last time I drank one, if ever lol
- Stouts... never liked them at allll

Beer of choice currently is Heineken Light with some original in d mix. Other than that, a cold stag does the job pretty well with zero complaints.

Well dayum, I gotta try it ASAP with a comment like that, lol :drinking:

We accustomed to 'beastly cold' but most of the ales and dark stuff taste best lightly chilled


Hmmm.......this could explain a lot because I would taste the Ales but generally wouldn't repeat.

There was a time I was in to hard ciders but the only place I see any (Angry Orchard in the gourmet store in Valpark), they sell a bottle for $65. That's a bit too much. Used to like the Strongbow on Tap in Bat and Ball.

Ghostry by me have White Claw.

Best store bought bottle beer I've had (aside from German beers I had in Berlin) was Innis and Gunn.

Valparks gourmet store occasionally has them. It's a Scottish beer that is just rich and smooth.

Worst beer by far is Stag.

Normally don't like either Carib or Stag but in August supermarkets had deals on the min kegs of those. Ended up drinking both and I must say beastly cold from the keg they went down well. The key is having a sufficienlty sized cooler of ice at hand to keep the keg chilled.

Where do you all purchase all of these (finely) crafted brews?

And, has anyone seen the draft Guinness in the can for sale? If so, where?

Lucky spot has a huge variety of beer and other alcohol. Honestly one of the best stocks IMO.

Was just asking to get a sense for other places that y'all shop at.

None of these places have this Guinness in the can tho. Lucky spot has the bottle which I buy. I've found the can to be a bit smoother.

When I traveled to the UK years ago, I fell in love with Murphy's stout. Anyone ever seen this locally?

Tried the Murphy's, it's good but not as good as Guiness and this one is one of my recent discoveries

I know Heineken has promos during the Rugby world cup. In 2011, I bought a Keg and drank it during the tournament. Which was kinda weird because it was in NZ and most of the games were like 2-5 in the morning
