    sounds like you enjoy a good golden shower, which is actually a quite tasty beer put out by the folks at dogfish head.

    My most refreshing beers for summer drinkin', mowing the lawn and Maryland crabfeeds
    Coors Light (old standby)
    Corona/Sol (with lime of course)
    Dos Exious
    Sam Adams Hefenvisen (seasonal ale) with a lemon
    Land Shark (I think its the most refreshing beer of all, but Jimmy's charging us too much for it)

    My favorite beers when I'm in the mood for "flavor" or something to go with a great high-end meal.
    - Love most British Isle beers (Samuel Smith's, Bass, Smithwicks, Newcastle etc...)
    - Saranac beers
    - I really like most of the Pete's Wicked Ales's and Sierra Nevada's
    - Negro Modela (or is it Modela Negro..I forget)

    When money gets tight...I prefer the champaigne of beers "Miller High Life" as the best bang-for-buck beer.

    FYI....Not to ruin your party but Red Stripe is nothing more than overpriced Budweiser under the disguise of a Jamacian import. I used to like zee Red Stripe until I realized it was made by Bud and actually taste just like Bud (but costs $2 more a 6 pack). Read the label and then do a taste test and get back to me.

    That is fairly recent in the term of years however. When you were in the islands a decade ago or more Red Stripe was completely different. That is also the case for drinking Guinness outside the US.

    AB had nothing to do with Red Stripe until the Jamaicans started bobsledding in the Olympics

    So is it contract brewed by bud or has bud actually changed the recipe? It might even be the same recipe but the water that is used in Jamaica may have a different chemical composition than that used by Bud, which might give it the sh!tty bud flavor. The true test is to see if you have Bud mud the next morning...

    Bought a 12 pack sampler of Troegs. Mostly ales, Nut brown, hopsomething, pale ale and a wheat but its pretty good. Nut brown is my favorite out of the sampler. Also picked up a sixer of Blue corner or something like that, toasted lager which is very very good. Cheers my friends!

    2 new ones I recommend (although not officially on my top 5):
    1) Budweiser American Ale (tastes more like a well respected American microbrew but about $1-$2 LESS per 6 pack
    2) Michelob Shock Top (a new Belgian Ale that is very taste and light for the summer....personally I like it better than Blue Moon)

    Stone IPA
    Karl Strauss Amber Lager
    Pacifico (In a can from Mexi... Only way to drink it)

    *** Coors Light if I am at the beach or on a boat. Coors has progressed a ton with their cooling can/bottle technology as well as their easy access beach box. The bag lined 24 pack of plastic bottles that you just pull the box top off of and fill with ice and you got a party!!!) I never drank coors when I lived in MD. I thought it was a hick beer. But living in cali, there are no hicks and everyone drinks coors light, so I feel a bit better about it.

    P.S. I dont think you can buy Cans of pacifico anywhere in the US. Iver never seen them and I live 10 minutes from mex.

    i pretty much always get paid to drink cause iv had a fake id since i was 16 and people just throw me $ at parties to get brew. so i can get some blue moon or heineken or fancy stuff. Once i useed the self checkout at the grocery store cuz i was buying a case. I ripped out one of the bud lights and scanned that and it scanned as 6 pack instead of a case so i got a case for $5.50

    1) Baltika #'s 3 thru 9 - awesome Russian import, nicely priced, but hard to find outside of Brighton Beach NY
    2) Hoegaarden - especially when mixed w/ Guinness (known as a black hoe in my circuit)
    3) Guinness on tap
    4) Sam Adams - Summer Ale
    5) And for the every day: Coors Light / Rolling Rock / Yuengling
