    Yes, there is a beer for all occasions. In the summer, I like to crush a beer at breakfast, particularly on the weekends, when I might do a late brunch with the family.

    Here's my go-to:

    I'm all about this for breakfast. Goes excellently with grits, another morning fave.

    Brooklyn Black Chocolate Stout. I still haven't find the kind woman who would serve me it every morning.

    KBS for me. I finally got enough this year I can have one per month. We're going away for a long weekend next week. I'm looking forward to sipping on a KBS watching the sunrise.

    Coffee Stouts seem obvious choices for breakfast, since stouts are my go-to style. I've had FBS and KBS for breakfast, but am thinking that Brasserie Dieu du Ciel! Péché Mortel will be my new standard as it's the best coffee stout I've had.

    Dogfish Head Beer for Breakfast (aka scrapple stout) really hit the spot last Thanksgiving.

    If I ever have a beer for breakfast, it's Left Hand Milk Stout Nitro. I'd call that an adult chocolate milk.

    I have this aversion to anything alcohol in the morning, it just makes me so sleepy mid afternoon. But if I'm ever tempted Kbs would be my poison. I'm still chilling on 2 nicely aged Bcbcs , I really need to drink these before Xmas they're 2014. They're in their sweet spot.

    For me, its pretty much any coffee stout or breakfast themed stout. FBS, Devil's Invention, beer geek breakfast, etc. For whatever reason, I only tend to drink one of these with breakfast in the winter (colder) months.

    It depends on what I eat. My favorite breakfast is a breakfast burrito with lots of hot sauce, so I normally go with something light, saisons, wheat beers, or something hoppy.

    I'm not huge on beer for breakfast but when I do it's usually something a bit lighter, lower abv, and has some citrus/fruit notes going on. Session IPA's usually fit the bill. Good memories of drinking Pinner Throwback IPA in the morning while on fishing trips and eating breakfast by the river (hence my profile pic).

    The beers I would be drinking around breakfast would be on the lighter side, lager styles. I know coffee stouts taste good but I'll take my coffee in the am. A nice pilsner in the summer, Oktoberfest in the fall, dopplebock in the winter and kolsch and bock in the spring for the "breakfast beers". I would love to be in a position where I could pop a Dupont Saison on the reg. :heart_eyes:

    My two favs have been mentioned, FBS and Sumatra Mountain, but I'll also add Surly Coffee Bender.

    What I'd like to see is breakfast stouts gaining the acclaim and acceptance as a morning drink as Mimosas have.

    My favorite coffee stout/breakfast beer. Reasonably priced, and surprisingly available in many parts of the country - Cheers!

    Does it have to be craft? Because back in the day (70's, 80's) a Rolling Rock from an 8-pack did the trick.

    Breakfast Stout from Founders or my home brew clone.
    I also really enjoyed the Bean series but Sixpoint is no longer distributed in my area

    I usually only drink with breakfast on vacation and it's usually a sesson IPA like All Day or Easy Jack.

    KBS. Straight up with no food. Thirty minutes from start to finish. Then, it's gym time for some heavy lifting. Done maybe... 3 x a year. No driving.

    Only once have I ever had beer with breakfast, and it was Founders Breakfast Stout. I'd like to try it sometime with Sumatra Mountain Brown or Beer For Breakfast. I also feel like a really citrusy IPA--or even citrus-fruited IPA, something like Grapefruit Sculpin--would be perfect.
