I do love a Scottish style ale.
Without a doubt… gotta’ be stout!
I like dark strong beers.
A good Pilsner
Guinness.. this is just before my boyfriend’s birthday.. major points if I win!
this sounds delicious
I have a palate more for chocolate than beer, so the only ones I can drink are the Framboise Lambics.
I enjoy dark, strong, full bodied beers like Back Hand of God stout.
Name a lager and I love it!
I love Westvleteren brewed in a small Belgian monastery. Only 60,000 cases produced this year, limited to one case per buyer and I got my hands a bottle of it!
Right now a proper German rauchbier would hit the spot
Mega hoppy IPA’s!
Lambics & fruit beers
Hmm….IPA or Dunkelweizen, IPA or Dunkelweizen?
I really enjoy Wheat Ales!
Usually a good pale ale for me.
I would love to go! probably going anyways, but would very much enjoy a complementary entry.
I like a Lager, plain old me.
My favourite is wheat ales.
Absolute favourites are Winter Ales! Can’t wait for them to start appearing on tap. 🙂
Love dark, amber ales & stout but enjoy anything except a hoppy hefeweizen.
I love to drink a nice cold wheat ale.
Porters and stouts for sure!
Root beer. Tehe.
I like sweet, flavored, and light ones. I had strawberry beer before, it was great.
I love wheat ales, especially Whistler Brewery’s Weissbier – local and a cute marmot on the bottle!
pale ale for sure 🙂
I.P.A. No. Doubt. About. It. Especially in the fall. Mmmm.
Porters and stouts. The darker, the better!
Stout all the way.
Gotta be ale!
A dark and smooth porter, without a doubt! Especially if it’s Phillip’s Longboat Chocolate Porter. Goes down so smooth it should be a crime.
Mmmm … pumpkin ale!
honey lager for me haha
“Milk is for babies. When you grow up you have to drink beer.” – Arnold Schwarzenegger, 1975
I like the British version of a pale ale.
Definitely an ale!
To be specific, I love Honey Lagers. Honey Lagers have the crispness and freshness that you expect from a lager BUT have a refreshing finish of honey. To be honest I really like the Granville Island Honey Lager, everything else lacks the balance I look for in the beer style.
I still enjoy a Wheat beer with a slice of orange, there’s just something refreshing about drinking an ice cold hefeweizen.
Honey lagers are my fave! Definitely love my beer!
i like flavoured beers.
Love a strong barleywine, but my favourite are India Pale Ales.
I like hefeweizen!
Oktoberfestbier / Märzen
Honey lagers 🙂
Wheat beers, yum. I’ll need a more wintery beer soon though.
Make mine a lager!
Wheat ales and unibroue beers! My husband is German but is on a beer diet. He would totally make an exception for this.
I love a Imperial IPA
I love lagers! 🙂
I love a OPA or 1516!
My favourite beer…the case of free molsons 6 pack I got on Robson yesterday!
IPA! Pumpkin ales are good too 🙂
Honey pale ale…yum!
Pumpkin Ale! 😀
I dig Alexandre Keiths.
hefeweizen beer, the best, especially for summer!!
I love lagers–so light and refreshing or summer ales infused with apricots or raspberries.
the darker the better
HOWE SOUND NUT BROWN ALE!!
Pale ales are great
There is almost no such thing as a beer I won’t enjoy on SOME level, but hefeweizen seems to be my beer of choice this season.
My favourite type of beer is Belgian Abbey ale.
probably sounds really lame but I love a cold Corona with a fresh lime
I’ll have a Pale Ale please
Yummy craft beers!
Nut Brown Ale!
Nut Brown Ale! Belgian Wit beers are petty good too.
