    The best single beer I ever had was Double Trouble on draft at Three Floyds a couple of years back. Subsequent bottles and drafts were never quite up to that one single draft.

    Probably John Martin Guinness. But Bell's Kalamazoo Stout really struck my fancy recently.

    I'd have to drink samuel smiths taddy porter for the rest of my life. Unless it was an endless keg, then I might pick fullers London porter... Tough call

    This is really hard. I'm pretty sure I'd have to choose a Saison since they are complex yet most are easy enough to drink a few without it being a chore. I'd probably choose Saison Brett or one of the HF Saisons.

    Zombie Dust.... Second choice would be 3F Hells Black Intelligencer because it reminds me of my other favorite beverage coffee.

    Yet to try the RR Plinys, but I'm betting they would rival my 3 floyds.

    Tricerahops DIPA from Ninkasi. Oh sure, if I had it everyday, I'd prolly get bored of it, but seeing how I was 1) blown so far off by it on my first and only try and 2) I can't get it with ease, makes this the sure pick for such a game. I could do worse. I suppose throwing out some local love I might say something like Two Hearted...that one wouldn't either be a bad thing to be stuck with...and only one caveat or I'm not playing: it has to be fresh. (And no, I haven't had the holy Pliny yet either, so I could just be dumb.)

    (And yes, this is like the old desert island disk game, and being a music consumer makes picking ten classic records almost completely, invalidly silly; but still fun to think about (changes by mood, just like beer!). I would imagine having to consume only one kind of beer as some sort of nightmare. A chance to discover and try different beers being the better part of paradise.)

    I would easily choose Consecration, but sours give me heartburn, and I wouldn't want that all the time. So definitely Pliny, unless someone came along and gave me a Zombie Dust and it was better.

    I'd choose 1809 Berliner Weiss. It would suck to be limited to one beer though.

    Since Fou' Foune and Heady Topper are already mentioned, I'm going with Lente.

    And a double prescription of Nexium.

    If I had to pay for the beers fresh Rayon Vert

    If all the beer I would ever drink was free probably Mikkeller It's Alive regular version.

    NG Moon Man would be number one. With Two Hearted and Lakefront IPA as number two or three can not decide between..... I would choose a big amazing beer but who could really drink that crap all the time...

    Pliny the Younger. Flavor, sessionability ;-) and punch all wrapped into one beer.
