    Default Beer???

    OK. This a political forum. We often talk sports too. Why not beer? Every town now has some sort of local craft brew. What is your local favorite? Many beers that appear as local craft brews are now owned by the big guys, who are owned by out of country conglomerates.
    But within our cities are many small brewers. Whose your favorite? Do they have a website you can link.
    I'll do mine...http://www.marblebrewery.com/

    Their IPA is my favorite. I always take some on the road. I hate to get to some small town in CO and only find 3.2 Bud-Light and Hard Lemonade at the conveniece store.

    The boutique brewers are killing the conglomorates! Anhesuer Busch saw it coming when they sold to AmBev. American taste buds are yearning for something more flavorful than the Light Beers they have been living on for the last two decades.

    I like the local Abita Purple Haze on tap. I don't care for it in a bottle. When I'm out, most places will serve Stella Artois.

    Don't live there but work there often.....Farmington NM, Three Rivers Brewery......great steaks and I've grown fond of the Arroyo Amber. They've got several others that are mighty fine also. www.threeriversbrewery.com Unfortunately, I can only have one as some moron in that town decided years ago to save money on the light poles and put all the stop lights horizontal instead of vertical......takes me too long to figure out I've got to stop!!!!

    Not something I do a lot of but Manny's Pale Ale in the Georgetown area of Seattle. They only do it in gallons so I have to get a lot of help nowadays.

    My Grandpa used to brew his own, he was Belgian, very good but potent. My cousin & I when we were about 9 opened a bottle, drank it & they found us passed out in the basement. I wish I had that recipe.

    I don't have a liver big enough to work thru all of the good local stuff we have. Summit Pale Ale, Surley's and Lift Bridge are 3 of my favorites.

    In San Diego County, Stone's Levitation Ale is a nice one (I'm enjoying one now). Back in Athens, GA, Terrapin Rye is outstanding.

    Bell's Two Hearted Ale. Named after a river in the U.P. section of Michigan. Bell's Oberon is great in the Summer also. http://bellsbeer.com/brands/#Year_Round-2
    Ole and Sven are quietly sitting in a boat fishing, chewing and drinking beer when suddenly Sven says, 'I think I'm gonna divorce my wife - she ain't spoke to me in over 2 months.' Ole sips his beer and says, 'Better think it over...women like that are hard to find.'
