    I am going to have to echo the sentiments of many and go with Zombie Dust.

    Bavaria 8.6 even as it now clocks in a mere paltry 7.9 its creaminess and warming alcohol in a pale strong lager make it a year round fave!

    viva la lagers and booze!

    Weihenstephaner Pilsner- everything they make is built for the long haul, but this one has that same great malt character in their Original, and it's a bit hoppier. I just don't see myself tiring of it.

    If picking right now, Heady. It is damn near close to a perfect everyday, every season beer.

    New Glarus Serendipity. Sour but not over sour for the summer and has all the fruits to make it a great
    holiday beer in the colder months.

    Might leave me wanting for something stronger in the winter (Vitus or Aventinus maybe, or a barleywine), but I live in Florida and that's like a month and a half.

    Hill Farmstead Society and Solitude #5.

    If you'd had this beer, it'd be your choice as well. First time I had this, I reconsidered all that was great with the world, smiled, and said "yes."

    I'm going with a more realistic choice.... LUNCH!
    If I could get it, though, It'd be Zombie Dust.

    These are valid points, so I would go with Damon, or maybe BA earl, no... birth of Tragedy, alright not exactly sure. Something dark from HF though.

    a beer that is refreshing enough for a hot Summer Day yet a nice enough sipper on a Winter Evening?

    I don't know any beer that would qualify, in fact this is a silly question.

    at least you could ask: "if you could only drink beers from one brewery for a year what would it be?"

    Good question. I would say heady, but I bought a case several months back and I ended up with a case of palate fatigue... Almost (luckily did not) got sick of it.

    That's why I'd go with either Harpoon Dark or Yards Brawler

    Would it be an allotment expected to be good for the whole year? Or would it be a magical beer that reappeared fresh through out the year? If it has to stay drinkable throughout the year, I choose Old Stock Ale. If it will be replenished, then I choose Fremont Summer Ale. Some beers that I like more might get tiresome after a year. Not those two.
