    Great Lakes Elliot Ness fur shur. Simply because I couldn't handle drinking my absolute all time favorites ALL the time but I could guzzle gallons of Elliot Ness and be more than content. I love that damn brew!

    A good German hefe, SA Boston Lager, Citra summer blonde, Mirror Pond, or Cascade's Blueberry Bourbonic. Pretty much anything from the Cascade Barrel House would do...

    So the proverbial "1984" has arrived and i have to choose a victory beer? I have had so many amazing novelty beers, but in the long run novelty beers are not what i could see myself drinking by themselves. The choice is pretty simple; Duvel. If it was the only beer in existence ( which would be sad), its the only beer that would still fit the bill with a diverse and potent profile IMO!

    I'll to for zombie dust or even alpha klaus as I love both and both are pretty easy going. Though both are year round I've never seen Zombie dust in my area while alpha klaus is usually a few hours away.. For me both of those are hard to find any time of year and both are brews I wish I could get every trip to my favorite store. But I'm going to go with another FFF year round and it's Dreadnaught. I freaking love this brew and while we do get it every few months it's not often enough for me. I've actually started buying it by the bulk when it's at the place I go. I believe they get around 20 bottles when it arrives and I bought the last 8 just 2 weeks ago. The store owner said he'd have more in the next few months, but still.. That's pushing it for me and this brew lol. I want to see it every Saturday when I make my run. All 3 of these are year rounds ya know

    Damn, I can't answer this... My beer cravings not only change with the time of day but with temperature, what I'm doing at the moment, season, and mood. A different style for all those things, its impossible for me to only have one style, let alone one, just one beer for the rest of my life.

    Kalinda!

    I was actually thing this while drinking it the other day. Drinks like 6% (although its a whopper) and has the right amount of funk and sour to my taste buds. It's hot the nice barrel character and crisp refreshness. If they offered this exact brew year round I'd be buying a ton of it and drinking it like heady

    I'd move some place cold enough to drink stout year round and be happy with an unlimited supply of Dark Lord.

    Heady Topper. I had a case and I drank at least one every day for several weeks and didn't remotely get tired of it.
