Hello fellow denizens of New Eden!

I have a confession to make.... I am truly in love with beer. I consume, I brew and I theorize about it. Seldom a moment passes without the thought of a nice hoppy draught, so I thought I would take this opportunity to open up a poll to my fellows whose pods are packed with pilsner, stuffed with stout or filled with fruity lambics.

What's your favourite beer (style or specific brew) to consume whilst traversing the systems of New Eden?

To kick things off, I really enjoy Sierra Nevada's Rye PA and I cannot emphasize how much I look forwards to a nice pint of Williams Brothers Joker IPA whenever I am back in Scotland. The first beer that I can recall genuinely enjoying was a Red Kite Ale made by the Black Isle Brewery (not too far from my home).

I'd love to hear from any homebrewers in the EVE community that have awesome recipes to share and beer drinkers that have a tipple to recommend!

Get drunk!!!!!!

Mmm sweet glorious beer :)

I think if I had to choose one style of beer its got to be a nice red ale. Since I've been in Reykjavik my favourite has been Móri. In fact, in general Iceland is a great country for beers of all styles!

Samuel Adams Octoberfest or Boston Lager. But single malts are more my thing.

Single malts eh? Go on then... I believe CCP Antiquarian would love to hear about that! Good shout on the Boston Lager. I get criticised for it but it's a fine brew.

When you say Harp and Guinness, are you mixing them together?!

Outside of micro brews, commercial beer in the US pretty much sucks. There are a couple that I like.

Leinenkugels (original, red and big butt)
Phat Tire


Otherwise, I'm a red ale fan as well. When I can afford it, I do single malts, also!

How about we start with Glenmorangie 10yo (Original), Macallan 15yo, and Laphroaig 18yo?

Yes, like this. But to be honest, I don't really have black and tans while playing EVE. I have those at the Irish pubs here in New York. Smile

Agreed on the Samuel Adams Boston Lager. To me, it's as good as any micro-brew.

Ah! I drank a similarly constructed drink called a Vodka Floater (may be Highland vernacular only) in my earlier years. Substitute the tan for concentrated fruit juice and the black for vodka and you get the idea. Certainly gets you there Big smile

I prefer Mild's and Bitters but have been known to go for the occasional stout.

I have a local brewery around here that does some amazing tasty beers.

My true hearts lies in belgium though. I have a local "Dive" bar that serves beer from around the world and whenever I'm travelling in Europe I'm always going for the "proper" beer.

I'm mostly drinking things like Kwak, or St bernardus, La trappe etc. Blondes or Browns(preffered) I drink them all. Try everything once!

they even do some really nice German Lagers like Kaltenberb and Bittburger.

If I'm in one of those ****** english pubs that doesn't have a good selection I'll drink something like Marstons Bitter or Guiness.

I'd also love to know some more about how easy and cost effective it is to set up your own microbrew. This interests me greatly!

I like cheap beer.
Bonus points if it's cold. Cool

I'd like to apologize for the poor quality of the post above and sincerely hope you didn't waste your time reading it. Yes, I do feel bad about it.

I like you.

My favorite beer? I like them all really. You should never stick with one type of beer.
Right now I'm drinking a Boddington's Pub Ale which is nice. Has a nice creamy head and a soft taste.

Stouts have a special place in my heart but I enjoy everything pretty equally.

I should give a special mention to Malmgård and their products. There's the blond ale and the spelt beer. They're a bit of a delicacy (for me at least).

Brewing my own beer is something I'd love to do. I just never got started. And I don't really have the room for it... :(
Might try it with my brother one day since he's also interested in that sort of things.

Stone Ruination IPA, when I'm feeling bitter. Or in the mood for something bitter.

Enjoying the rain today? ;)
