May have to give that a try, I've seen the "Shine On" in stores before.

Yeah, Shine On isn't bad. It's sort of a robust, but yet a bit lighter than their average beers. I'm not sure where you're at in WI, but I think the distribution is pretty widespread throughout the state these days. If you like ales, Happy Heron is one of the best out there. Their Mudpuppy Porter is very good for a porter, too. But, if you ever see any Bourbon Barrel Stout, be sure to grab some. The guys that brew this stuff are pretty good friends, so I guess I feel a bit partial to their beers.

well, I like quite a few ones: Samuel Adams, Grolsch, Duvel, Leffe, Affligenn are the ones that comes to my mind. Stella Artois and HEineken are easy to find and I like those very much. Unfortunately, most of the US beers are not available here in Brazil. You can find Budweiser, but I don't like it. A refreshing beer that Shawn introduced to me, and I really like in a hot sunny day (Exprience, here I go) is the Nati Bo. I hope I can try new beers on my trip to Experience and enjoy the ones I already know.

I like what I'm seeing with Ale Asylum! Next time I'm in the neighborhood, I'll be sure to check them out.

As for Maryland brews, I'd recommend the following:
Flying Dog http://flyingdogales.com/
Evolution http://www.evolutioncraftbrewing.com/
16 Mile http://16milebrewery.com/
Dogfish Head (technically located in Delaware, but located on the same peninsula as us) http://www.dogfish.com/
Fordham (from the Ramshead Tavern where Paul started building guitars) http://fordhambrewing.com/wp-conten...on.php?redirect_to=http://fordhambrewing.com/

ok, I got it, now I need to find them

Dos Equis (XX) Amber is a long standing favorite. Throughout the years - even as Colorado seemed to have a micro-brew on every corner in the mid-90's - that one beer has remained a staple. When it is fresh and cold, it's pretty hard to beat.

There are times lately, I'll admit, where I'll return a 6-pack of Dos Equis. Not sure if those guys keep their beer cool enough but a lot of it seems to go sour these days. That has had me searching for something new.

While I used to enjoy a cool (not cold) Guiness, Grolsch, Samuel Smith Nut Brown Ale, a Murphy's Irish Stout, or a Boddington's Bitter, I am starting to lean away from beer that is skunky, bitter, or too hoppy. I just want a well balanced amber or hefeweizen. Blue Moon (with an orange) is a good summer beer for me but I don't generally care for fruity beer either. And Pilsner's? No thanks.

I just want a beer that is richly flavored when cold and balanced enough that the last warm swig from the bottle (or pint glass) isn't hard to choke down.

Right now, Yuengling is consistently the best beer I've ever had. The problem? I can't buy it in Colorado. :(

Yuengling...I love this one, but I can't ask for it, since it's too complicated for me. Hey Hans, I pay and you order, is that a deal?
