What's your favorite microbrew?
Do you mean Yuengling? I never tasted it but it is famous as the oldest brewery in America. Even though it is a regional beer it is at least the 6th largest brewery in the US so it is hardly a micro.
The beers I enjoy are not micros either but are old classic brands. I like Czech Pilsner Urquell, and German Spaten, and Pauliner. Guiness Stout (especially on tap) and Fuller ESB. I enjoy Sam Adams Spring Ale though most Sam Adams beers seem overrated to me. Oh yeah, Grolsch is a great lager if you can get it fresh and not light-struck. Most peopel think Grolsch is supposed to taste skunky but that is entirely from improper storage. A lot of the micros cater to hop-heads while I like a little maltier beer.
I brew my own beer too. I finished my 12th 5 gallon batch of beer a few months ago. I made an IPA for my step-son; like I said I'm not big on hoppy beers but I knew he likes 'em so I brewed him a batch. It did turn out pretty good. My batch before that was a stout. I changed recipies and don't like it as much as my previous recipe so I'll go back to my old one next time I brew stout. Lately I've been really enjoying Negro Modello when I go out for TexMex so I might do a clonebrew of it for my next batch.
Mirror pond pale ail from deschuttes brewery, it's dark, delicious, and wonderful. For some reason, the flavor has always reminded me of iced black tea.
I don't think it's a microbrew but hardly anyone knows it. Yeung Leung Lager. It's the only beer I drink.
