        Voted for Sam Adams, but there are some other really good beers that deserve mentioning:

        Fat Tire Amber Ale. Tried this one in Vegas (Westward Ho Casino has them for $1.99 a bottle), and may have found my new beer of choice.

        Anchor Steam and Anchor Porter

        Bert Grant's Perfect Porter

        Dragon Stout

        Harpoon (if it wasn't for Sam Adams, this would be Boston's best brewery)

        Dogwood Pale Ale

        Abita Turbo Dog

        Laughing Skull Lager

            A ‘beer poll’? I like that!
            But why just those ten ordinary tasting beers to vote at? Who has put this list of options together? I won’t vote for any of them!
            I miss the really good beers, like the famous and powerful Belgian trappist brews: Chimay (capsule blanc, capsule rouge ou capsule bleu), Orval, Westvleteren, Rochefort…. or the beer that ferments spontaneous when subjected to the open air in the valley of the Senne (near Brussels): Lambic….
            All the fine British ales and bitters…
            Guinness from Ireland…..
            Victoria Bitter (VeeBee) and Toohey’s from Australia…
            Berliner Weisse from Germany….
            Just to name a few good beers.

            But, to come to my point, what I really miss in the list is the finest beer of all: Budweiser. No no no, not that tasteless stuff that is supposed to resemble something like beer from Anheuser-Busch --but the real Budweiser-Budvar from České Budějovice in the Czech republic. That is at the top of my list, together with Pilsner Urquell. Both originating from the country where the pilsner was invented. When you ever have tasted one of these (on draught, of course) you’re spoiled for the rest of your life .

            They locked up a man
            who wanted to rule the world
            The fools
            They locked up the wrong man

              Also....Carlsberg, Heineken, Fosters, Carling....i'm not fussy.
              you must have same taste as me, those (minus Carling, never got round to buying it) are my favourite beers, althought Carlsberg goes on the top of the list

              Add Budwiser and 1664 into the list as well.

                Funny thing about Carling (the #1 seller in the UK) is that it started out as an American beer. Don't believe me? Look up its history.

                It's too bad it's really hard to find in most of the USA. Not a bad beer at all.

                  by looking at the list of beers in your poll, it's safe to assume you are young, poor, or both.
                  if you're gonna, drink beer...drink real beer.

                      First, as a Colombian, I'll say my #1 choice is Cerveza Aguila.

                      And #2, as St. Louisan-by-adoption, I have to say Bud!!!

                      And Clovis (aka Frenchy), I extend you an invitation to visit beautiful St. Louis, and I also invite you to yell your donkey pee comment aloud over here. My hope is that after doing so, you can make it back to LA alive.

                        You've completely missed Breznak (Czech) and many others from the real beer country.

                          what about the good old stuff like Crown Larger?
                          Some people in today's society are so thick!

                            this list is full of donkey's piss!

                            fact that an australian beer won the worlds best beer won the medal in California needs mentioning.

                            and you don't even have Asahi or Sapporo on the list, my vote goes to Asahi.

                            A specialty beer brewed in Tasmania has snared the coveted title of the world's best amber lager.

                            Cascade Autumn Amber, a seasonal drop produced at a historic brewery in Hobart owned by Carlton and United Breweries, received the accolade at the World Beer Cup 2004, held in San Diego, California, at the weekend.

                            Much more than froth and bubble, the event attracted some 1,500 entries from more than 390 breweries across 40 countries.

                            As well as taking gold for Autumn Amber, Cascade also bagged bronze in the American-style wheat beer category for its Summer Blonde - part of the brewery's Four Seasons range.

                            Cascade head brewer Max Burslem, who has been in the business for more than 30 years, said the awards were fantastic recognition for the company and Australian beers in general.

                            "This is the world's toughest beer competition and further proof we can make beers that are the best of their style worldwide," he said.

                            "There was something like 89 categories involved and beers from all over the world."

                            He said Autumn Amber was a top fermented drop featuring aromatic Bavarian hop varieties that was best enjoyed with red meat and served at a temperature of about 4 degrees Celsius.

                            Cascade produces about 5,000 cartons and 800 50-litre kegs annually of the brew, supplying specialty venues around Australia.

                            Western Australia's Matilda Brewing Company won silver in the German-style pale wheat beer section with its Redback beer, while Hahn Special Vintage, produced by Sydney-based Lion Nathan Australia, took bronze in the old ale category.

                              Hey Longreach747, your post reminds me of the Monty Python 'Australian Table Wine' sketch from over 30 years ago:

                              A lot of people in this country pooh-pooh Australian table wines. This is a
                              pity, as many fine Australian wines appeal not only to the Australian palette,
                              but also to the cognoscenti of Great Britain.

                              "Black Stump Bordeaux" is rightly praised as a peppermint flavoured
                              Burgundy, whilst a good "Sydney Syrup" can rank with any of the world's
                              best sugary wines.

                              "Chateau Bleu", too, has won many prizes; not least for its taste, and
                              its lingering afterburn.

                              "Old Smokey, 1968" has been compared favourably to a Welsh claret,
                              whilst the Australian wino society thouroughly recommends a 1970 "Coq du
                              Rod Laver", which, believe me, has a kick on it like a mule: 8 bottles
                              of this, and you're really finished -- at the opening of the Sydney
                              Bridge Club, they were fishing them out of the main sewers every half an

                              Of the sparkling wines, the most famous is "Perth Pink". This is a
                              bottle with a message in, and the message is BEWARE!. This is not a
                              wine for drinking -- this is a wine for laying down and avoiding.

                              Another good fighting wine is "Melbourne Old-and-Yellow", which is
                              particularly heavy, and should be used only for hand-to-hand combat.

                              Quite the reverse is true of "Chateau Chunder", which is an Appelachian
                              controle, specially grown for those keen on regurgitation -- a fine wine
                              which really opens up the sluices at both ends.

                              Real emetic fans will also go for a "Hobart Muddy", and a prize winning
                              "Cuiver Reserve Chateau Bottled Nuit San Wagga Wagga", which has a
                              bouquet like an aborigine's armpit.
                              Quite similar, isn't it?
