Three is hard to come up with.

My favorite, non-microbrew is Dos Equis Amber.

XX Amber is pretty good.  You also might like Negra Modelo.

My favorite Mexican beers are Bohemia (a really tasty, true Czech-style pilsner) and Pacifo Clara (one of the best 100-degree-poolside beers ever made).

Guinness Stout in a pint glass

Guinness Draught poured from a bottle into an official tulip-shaped Guinness glass

and Blue Moon Horchata

Yeah yeah I know Blue Moon is fake microbrew hand puppet made by Coors who have a long history of abusing migrant workers and contributing their money to weirdo causes

but it's good beer

Some of the beers within different beer styles are too similar to distinguish so I'll just go with beer styles:

1. Scotch Ales (eg. Founder's Dirty Bastard & Backwoods Bastard)
2. Dunkels (mostly made by German breweries)
3. Doppelbocks (eg. Ayinger Celebrator, Troeg's Troegenator)
HM. Porters, Black Ales / Lagers, Oktoberfests

As a bonus, here's some suggestions for good beer bars / brewpubs / taprooms in Philadelphia (where I lived for 5 years until last year) and Chicago (where I live now):

Philadelphia - Monk's, Eulogy, Khyber Pass, Good Dog, The Institute, Standard Tap, South Philly Tap Room, Pub on Passyunk East, Devil's Den, Frankford Hall, Misconduct, Yard's
Chicago - Monk's (not related), Sheffield's, Kaiser Tiger, Hopleaf*, Map Room*, Fountainhead*, Beermiscuous, Revolution, Half Acre, Baderbrau, Maria's*, Howells & Hood*, Bangers & Lace*

*Haven't been yet but have only heard positive reviews.

Thanks Michi, I'll defiitely keep my eyes open for those if/when I get out t Philly or Chicago.

And CH, Blue Moon is okay as far as the macro-fake-micros go.  Last summer they brought out a beer they called "Balgian Table Pilsner" and it was a VERY good beer.  And their standard Belgian wit offerings are decent, too.

Another interesting, yet potentially contentious thread title would be "what is the most disgusting beer to ever wash across your palate"... or something like that.

And my answer would undoubtedly be Schafer.  Dear God Almighty, I had an experience about 20 years ago so bad that I will never forget the taste of that skank swill.  Swill is a complement to this stuff.

I don't even know if it's still made any more, or if it's still as "low rent" as it used to be, but I puked up a lung, some other miscellaneous organs, and about $15 worth of Jack-in-the-Box while drinking that crap.  Worst drinking experience ever.

Absolute worst beer to ever grace the planet.  Lone Star is champagne up next to this canned horse piss.

I remember Pearl, not sure I've ever tried it.  And Falstaff - that must have sucked too.

I remember the days when Schlitz was a big seller around these parts.  My uncles drank it.  I never tasted the stuff, but I do remember my Dad migrating from Schlitz to Coors.

As a child, I don't remember any of my elders drinking Budweiser.  Maybe it wasn't huge in Texas back then.

I remember drinking something called Stegmeier, in PA.  It was a small company, I won't call it a microbrew because it was so bad.  It was $5 for a case, with $1.5 returned on the returnable bottles.  This was in 1989.

I enjoy any beer that you can't see through.

Except IPAs. They taste like broccoli.

I don't much like broccoli.

Amazingly, the 7-11 by my place apparently sells Bell's Hopslam now.

As for terrible beers (ignoring macrobrews, of course), white beers and various Belgian style beers I just can't appreciate. More for those who do, though....

So, you dislike the absolute best beers on the planet?  I'm genuinely sad for you.  :03:

Amen, brutha. 

(Although, there are a lot of Czech, German, and Belgian-style pilsners that I love, and you CAN see through those...)

Grolsch makes a beer that they bottle in big tall bottles with a tricky type of of flip wire cap. You'll know it when you see it.

I got them mostly because that funky flip cap has a red washer seal on it. That red washer seal fits perfectly over the strap stud on a guitar. When installed, it's a very recognizable DIY strap lock.

Turns out, the beer was delicious, too! Probably shouldn't have had two right before going on stage, though.

Grolsch is a decent Dutch lager.  Certainly better then Heineken...

I buy Grolsch for my friends that are into home-brewing.  Those resealable flip-lids are a lot better for bottling, than capping normal bottles on your own.

Of course, the really smart home-brewers simply keg and avoid the hassle of bottling.

I'm pretty sure many of you have tasted more beers than I've tasted beverages.

Let's see - water, coke, dr. pepper, sprite, Fanta orange, tea, koolaid, corona, bud, coors, miller, shiner.

That's 12 liquids I've ever tasted in 50+ years.  I wager utee has tasted more than 100 beers.

 :97: <- and what is that emoji doing?  Shaking its fist or ....?

Yeah, I've definitely tasted more than 100 beers. 

That emoji frightens me, by the way.

Also, when did they become emoji instead of emoticons?  We've had emoticons for almost 30 years, but now we're supposed to call them emoji?

I feel like this is something the hipsters did to us, in their incessant desire to pretend they invented everything simply by taking very old ideas and giving them new names.  Don't all of those bearded fake lumberjacks realize "tiny houses" are really nothing more than terribly inefficient RVs?

Emoticons are purely text based. They're just ASCII style drawings like :) or ===D

Emoji are unicode supported graphics. They're a standards based call that lets platforms easily display preloaded images without repeatedly transmitting the file.

I remember when utee94 was young enough to be on the side that endeavors to call things by their appropriate name instead of an old cranky guy yelling at kids to get off his lawn and complaining about how things were different in 1987.

We called them all emoticons, even once they became graphics, for a decade.

Then some skinny-jeans mustache with a pocket watch decided they should be called emojis.  And you're siding with that skinny-jeans mustache.   :73:

I guess your post (which pre-dates mine) answers my question.  So we have a whacking emoji.  A little risque for my taste.

Wait, is it gone?  I don't see it up there.

This thread's been around 11.5 years I think?  Might as well keep it going.

Today, I'll say

But it'll be something totally different tomorrow.  :)
