    If you had one beer to drink for the rest of your life, what would it be?

    My vote is either Troegs Perpetual IPA or SNPA.

    Founders Imperial Stout or Bell's Two Hearted Ale.

    PtE, Lucky Bastard, or Sucaba are the 3 that popped into my head. Donno if I could only drink BA RIS for the rest of my life as much as I love them.

    Allagash Odyssey for sure.

    Came here to say Duvel. It's no longer my favorite but to me it's the epitome of balance and craft in a beer that been doing it a long, long time.

    Hopefully it would come in a HUGE bottle to last me a while.
  21. The majority of beer drinkers around the world do limit themselves to a single beer-there are Bud drinkers in the US, here there are those over here who drink nothing but Stella. Fosters, John Smith's smooth and Guinness have their followers.
    In my early beer drinking days my scene was dominated by one brewery-Home Ales - which owned practically all the pubs within reach.And I was happy to walk to one every night and sink a few pints without ever getting tired of the beer.Being a cask ale it was subtly different wherever you went , Albert at the Black Horse, Bob at the Anchor, John Hutchinson at the Red Lion were renowned for their beer quality and it was a treat to visit them and experience what different cellaring could bring about.
    Much as I enjoy the present ocean of "craft" beer I find that the more extreme they are the less I could live with them long term.Many beers I can enjoy for a pint but don't want another and look for something different.An item can be a treat on an occasion but tiresome when repeated too often.
    That's why if the worst came to the worst and I had to restrict myself to just one it wouldn't be one which would impress most BAs. It would be a session beer to be certain because a good one tastes better and better the more you drink of it.Picking an individual one would have to be done by tossing a coin, but I could live with the outcome though of course I would miss the present choice.

    If I woke up in a world with only one beer in the fridge I'd want it to be Orval.

    PtE, not too extreme or boring.

    It's a weird choice since I don't often buy PtE.

    I am predictable if nothing else. Gimme a lifetime supply of 3 year old Westvleteren 12 and I will happily drink it and nothing else.

    Do I have to pay for this beer? Does it have to be a readily available beer I can grab off the shelf whenever I want or is this a hypothetical beer?

    I'm sure in due time my answer will change, but as of right now......Jai Alai or Heady Topper. But as far as what I can get on a regular basis, Gandhi Bot for sure.

    Good question, Hanzo.

    If I have to pay for this beer myself, it'd be something cheap and sessionable, like Yuengling light lager cans. If it's a hypothetical beer that I can have whenever I want, it'd be Aventinus Eisbock. (Ayinger Celebrator is a VERY close second.)

    Hill Farmstead Edward or Heady Topper. Probably Edward as it isn't as abrasive, and I could drink it in any weather.

    Oskar Blues's Deviant Dale's. But if you asked me yesterday I probably would have said Allagash White. And if you ask me tomorrow I'll probably say something completely different.
