I'm kind of a beer snob too. Whenever we travel, we seek out the local microbreweries/brew pubs and sample what they have. If all we can get are the mainstream ones like Labatt or Molson (we're in Canada) we don't drink beer.
A lot of American beer seems like water to me, especially the light ones!!
I really like red and dark beers. Rickards, Big Rock, Grizzly Paw, Alley Kat to name a few. They all make a nice assortment that I like to sample from depending on my mood. In summer when it's hot I like the lighter fruitier beers - Rickard White or Blonde, Big Rock Lime, Grizzly Paw's Beaver Tail (raspberry - maybe my all time favorite beer). Hubby likes their Rutting Elk beer
Sleeman Honey brown is a good one too.
I used to work in the lab at a local brewery, testing beer. Worlds GREATEST job. The brewmaster there had a signature brew called Wolfsbrau that I adored. Sadly they closed down over a decade ago.
I just like beer
I think I will go get some tonight - I've had a rough day.
