    The best hop forward beer, I probably havent had it yet.

    PTY or Double Sunshine would be my request as of today.

    Pliny the Younger...I stumbled upon it randomly a few years back at the Drafting Room in Exton, PA. It was unannounced, and I ended up drinking 4 glasses of it that night. Absolutely fantastic beer!

    The fine beers listed above give a purpose to life. Give me a Corona Light and I would be begging them to throw the switch.

    I would say either King Henry or a BCBS variation(maybe other than Bramble, as I've yet to taste one from my cellar)

    Two Hearted. Why risk trying something I haven't had before. What if I don't like it? I mean, I'd be pissed enough that I was gonna die. Couple that with disappointment over the taste of my last beer...

    Nope, I'll go with something I enjoy the shit out of every single time I drink it.

    Guinness. Out of all the beers in all the world, this is the first beer I drank, so it might as well be my last.

    Nothing. I'd tell him to take his craft beer and shove it. After all, what's the point. It's not like the beer would be enjoyable in a holding cell waiting for death...

    Dang it, you bet me to it. If I'm not celebrating and/or in a positive state of mhnd I don't touch alcoholic products of any type.

    Something in a 750ml so I cover myself in stinkin' pee when they throw the switch.

    Actually, there are some beers I've had which would have made my impending doom seem more acceptable :)

    Very nice replies, great answers with some mighty fine brews. The funny thing is, my very first craft beer was Samuel Adams "Winter Lager" (1998 I believe). I was sitting in a deli and ordering myself a grilled Ruben. A very good friend of mine ordered a Sam Adams Winter Lager. I looked at it and remember saying "Damn, that looks good". I ordered one for myself and was blown away by the aroma and taste. Since then, I had made it a point to get some every year. Some years were better then others, but it was still a fine beer. I'm torn between it and say a Brooklyn Brewery "Black Ops" It's a good thing I'm not on death row. :)

    A couple bottles of Rare Bourbon County along with about three hours to enjoy them before the deed is done.

    You guys all lose, the correct answer is DFH Immort Ale. Despite what the label says, it in fact makes you immune to execution.

    MAYBE GET SOME OF THE SAME ANSWERS, but what if you could drink only one kind of beer the rest of your life. Probably be an IPA for me. Maybe Southern Tier Unearthly IPA, or Firestone Union Jack IPA, or Great Divide Rumble IPA, or Sam Adams 3rd Voyage, or Sammy Latitude 48?! If a Barleywine though may go with Yards Old Bartholomew. What might you like?

    Blabaer. The state can cover the cost of finding it, paying for it, and shipping it here.

    Or I would take a flight of 375 bottles of FouFoune, Mamouche, Blabaer, and St. Lamvinus.

    DFH Immort Ale is another very good brew! Haven't had it for a long time though. I think its been hiding out in Milton DE. :)

    As a homebrewer, I think my last drink would be some sweet tasty cell made pruno.

    I'm thinking an IV would be in order, in my case it would be SNPA
    Though I'd go out the way Aldous Huxley did with the SNPA as a chaser

    My best answer: 4 cases of BCBS 2012

    I would then mention to everyone that it looks like I ordered more beer than I could drink in one sitting. I would then threaten to bath in the remaining bottles unless all parties present joined me in some. I would then take 2 for myself and offer everyone else present: Warden, guards, media, etc... 2 bottles each. Then while toasting everyone I ever met in my life (while pretending to drink my sips).....I'd get us through those 2 bottles. Then while everyone in the place drank their 2 and got plastered......I'd slip out the back door and take my unopened bottle to Mexico with me.

    Adios & Cheers!
