I have to put in a pitch for Bellingham Bay Brewery. They brew some great beers! (Not to mention nachos and live music.) My wife and I are driving out there from Idaho on Thursday. We can't wait to find out what they have this time around. We will be there Friday about 6 o'clock if any locals want to join us!

Bud light, or Stella Artois if upgrading as my SO works for Anheuser Busch. Gotta support the home team.

Shiner "White Wing", a Belgian white ale brewed with Belgian yeast, coriander, and orange peel. First released in 2013 and brewed at the Spoetzl Brewery in Shiner, Texas.

Costo Vodka, $13 a jug, great stuff. When hi Rollin Chiroc, at $30 for small bottle, very seldom. Beer I prefer FF's fav...Becks... Rum, Flor de Cana...$20 for big bottle but taste like much more expensive Rum, good even as sippin whiskey, and that is the low end of the brand.

Not much of a beer fan, but when I do drink beer the only one I'll drink is Guinness. I like it for its body and taste.

There are a few dark beers, stouts if you will, brewed locally here in Washington. I've tried them on occasion, but to my palatte they always fall short of Guinness.

It doesn't have to be on tap for me to like it, although when I'm in the UK that's the way it's generally served and it does seem a bit fuller. But Guinness out of the bottle or can is fine, too. Which is generally the way it comes here in the PNW and BC.

First time I tasted it was on a road trip in my Land Rover in the Yukon. The friend on the trip with me drank it. I thought the taste was horrible. And then one day, I didn't.

But most of the time, when I do drink it tends to be wine. My favorite to date is Faustinio VII Rioja (Spain) followed by some of the reds from Gaillac, France.

Guinness has just never been the same since they took the plastic slug out of the bottle. I have four bottles of the old stuff in my fridge for special occassions. Clink clink. Cheapskates at Guinness. I complained at the brewery in Dublin, but they said I should just travel to Dublin for the real stuff anyway.

I agree with you Kthoennes. Guinness is still great on draught but the keg has to be fresh. I don't care for the bottled version.

Guinness is too heavy for me, unless I am using it in my pancakes with lots of butter. It is exceptional on pecan pancakes.

Haven't had the opportunity of drinking the local hooch. The constabulary got there first.

Tofino kelp stout. Yep, with real kelp in it. Surprisingly good.

Presently, $2.49 (750 mm) Shiraz, and I'm not disappointed. Much better than 7 Euro (over $9.00) for a bottle domestic Italian wine in Italy. (Talking grocery prices here.)

This evening I'm enjoying a couple of fingers of Johnny Walker platinum. Not enough o's in smooth to describe it.

"White Christmas" martini. Amaretto, vanilla vodka, half and half, shaken vigorously, chilled glass, garnish with two maraschino cherries on a small peppermint stick, a couple drops of maraschino cherry juice, and a faint dusting of fresh ground nutmeg.

The Bellingham brewery, is Boundary Bay, and they have some great choices. A beer with a Great name, is POLYGAMY PORTER, out of Utah. Their motto on the bottle is, You can't just have one. I have a bottle of Redbreast 15 yr old, Irish whiskey under the tree, calling my name. Merry Christmas all.

My favorite is Pabst Blue ribbon beer and occasionally for good health a Guinness Stout.
I have sampled Dormunder in Germany,Peroni in Italy, Kronenburg in France UGH, Tiger beer in Hong Kong and Hatuey the one eyed Indian beer in Cuba but still always come back to PBR.
Different strokes for different folks, that what makes it fun.
PS
Almost forgot about Moose Drool in Montana

I haven't met many IPAs that I didn't like. I like going with the local brew wherever I am. Saranac is the local brew at home, and generally what's in my fridge. Or a nice burbon.
