    This is a very hard question for me to answer, but I get asked this question all of the time.  It is so difficult because my mood for types of beers varies on a daily basis.  I do have a beer that I call my fail safe, but I cannot really give a person an opinion on the best tasting beer.

    The answer for what is the best depends on so many things based on the individual.  For example, my girlfriend likes stouts and porters.  She makes a habit of letting me choose the beer for her because I know the intricacies of what she likes.  Stouts and Porters are no my favorite choice of beers; however, I do have a known list of good choices in that category that I can use in helping her choose.  Personally, I am more of a hops person.  I enjoy the sweetness that comes from hops and I can give a long list of my favorite IPAs.

    I am curious, beer drinkers of the world, in your opinion, what is the best tasting beer?

      I tend to favour lagers, probably because of their crisp taste, but I don't mind certain IPAs, but ones are a little less hoppy.  The best beer I have ever tasted was Hog's Back Summerweiss that I had at a BBQ a few summers ago.  It was only out for a limited time and as far as a know it's from a microbrewery here in Ontario. 

      I find in the winter I like to drink the stouts, I don't have a particular favourite in that category, but I have tried some nice ones.

    I'm not overly picky and will try just about any beer, but I do prefer Pale Ales. Saranac, brewed in upstate New York, makes a good one, as does Sierra Nevada.

    I am a huge fan of wheat beers, but I think the best I've ever had was Belhaven's Best in Scotland. I am guilty of having it with/for breakfast, haha. Though I gotta say I've had so many terrific beers it's hard to pick! I do like stouts too, but you're right, it's def a winter type beer

      Guilty of trying it for breakfast? You mean privileged to have it for breakfast!;-)

    I can't drink beer, it has too many bubbles and I can't swallow it, plus it tastes like an outhouse smells, but I have had Woodchuck on tap and that, I could get down quite easily. smile

    I'm enjoying a Founders Dirty Bastard Scotch style ale at the moment. Oh no, it's empty. Got a porter now. The latest variety pack contains those two and a dry hopped pale ale and an IPA.

    My next favorite variety pack is Guinness with a draught, stout, black, and the regular.

    Sam Adams variety pack is okay except in the summer with those fruity flavors.

    Dundee variety pack is good. Stout, IPA, pale bock lager, and Kolsch-style ale.

    Dundee costs $20 a case as opposed to the other three I mentioned, which cost around $35. So Dundee is a great choice for the money in my opinion.

    All beer is good. Some is just better.

      Completely agree that all beer is good, and I can't agree more about the Sam Adams Summer Variety pack. There are some decent beers in there but I just can't bring myself to try the blueberry beer. Doesn't appeal to me at all.

        That blueberry beer might work for breakfast along with a blueberry muffin.

    I'm similar to you when it comes to my mood for beer on a day by day basis. I like every type of beer except I haven't found an IPA that I liked yet. My go to beers are brown ales but I do like a good stout or porter once in a while. The best beer I think I've had to date is one called Hobgoblin by Wychwood brewery. This beer has a great smooth taste with slight flavors of toffee and chocolate but not as strong as a porter. They have a whole line of beers but Hobgoblin is the one I like best.

      I tried Hobgoblin once. I think that's a perfect example of individual's having a preferred style. It was a decent beer (been a while so I don't remember my thoughts) but not one I would keep stocked. It is one I'd recommend to others though.
