    I always tell people my favorite beer is the one in my hand.

    That said, I have a lot of them and to pick only 1 is too limiting.
    It depends on the time of year, what I'm doing, etc. I wouldn't pick the same beer after doing yard work in the hot sun that I would pick if I was warming up after coming in from the cold, for example.

    Hmm. Favorite beer. That's a tough one. I'm generally a stout person, but I'm also quite partial to cider. I'm with BD on this one.

    I think that you will find that many of us feel as BrewDog. We might be more quick to name a favorite style instead of a single beer, but even that can be tough. Somewhat like BrewDog, I answer the one in front of me at the moment or the next one. Now for me, it is coming in to wheat beer time. These are some wheat beers that I make sure to get at this time of year. Oberon from Bell's, In Heat Wheat from Flying Dog, Smuttynose's Summerwiezen, and Middle Ages Swallow Wit.

    Beer is too situational to have favorites-the stout I'm drinking for breakfast might not be as good when I'm mowing the lawn on a very hot day.
    Westy is good, but there are beers in that same style that are accessible, even here in beer hell I can get a bottle of Rochefort 10 for about $7 so for me the Rochefort is a better choice.

    I have a favorite. Sierra Nevada Pale Ale is the beer that turned me on to craft beer almost 20 years ago and I thank them for it every time my supply of it runs out by buying more. So for that reason, it is my favorite beer and it fits every occasion for me.

    There are only 2 great beers in the world: the one you are drinking now and then one you will be drinking next.
    Somewhere on a park bench Godot is waiting on me.

    Yes, I do simply walk into Mordor!

    I am with the majority on this one; there are just too many to have any one, or for that matter, ten favorites.

    That said, I am also, in an offhand way, in agreement with Mikegobrew. I always, and I do mean always, have some SNPA on hand. I feel downright naked if I don't.

    Now there is a mental picture none of us wanted. Only way to get rid of it is to go grab one of my favorite beers.

    I'm always looking for my newest favorite beer. I have favorites of some styles: my favorite oatmeal stout is brewed by Marble, my current favorite IPA is Sculpin by Ballast Point. But these are favorites only until something I like better comes along.
    I also almost always have at least on Sierra Nevada style in my fridge, but I wouldn't say any of their beers are my favorites, they are just very comfortable companions that don't ask anything of me.

    My favorite beer is the one I hadn't tried before and that is different (in a good way) from anything else I've had.

    A favor yes, but I still feel scared.

    I do like sierra nevada, but I tend to lean more towards their torpedo extra IPA. My go to brewery tends to be Founders (I'm really enjoying their double trouble). Not to mention Oatmeal breakfast stout, dirty bastard, all day IPA, porter, and imp stout.

    Corky, I've never heard of Marble. What sets their oatmeal stout above the others you've tried?
