I also love the Vanilla Porter at Sonoran Brewery, but I do not believe it can be purchased anywhere else.
That is quite a fantastic beer. I also really like their Imperial Stouts though those show up only rarely. I need to remember to stop in and buy a growler or some bottles to go next time I am at Stinkweeds or somesuch.
I don't think I'm hosting a 2016 collaborative playlist.
Heineken has always sucked. I wish Bass or Guinness/Smithwick's would outbid them for Coachella.
Frankly, I hate a lot of these beers mentioned. Blue Moon is okay when my roommate brings some home, but at bars it's always served with a slice of orange or some other weird fucking shit that has no business being in beer. All the millions of Sam Adams varieties that are flavored like some kind of fruity shit bug me for the same reason. Beer should taste like beer, dammit. Fat Tire's funky too, although I'm not even sure what it tastes like that it's not supposed to. Stella's fine, but there's plenty of beers that taste just as good and aren't ultra-premium priced.
You obviously don't know anything about beer, brewing, or even drinking for that matter. Guiness would be awful in 100 degree weather, and they put an orange in it because it has coriander in it and it helps bring out the specific flavor of the beer. Hoegarrden, which is one of the oldest beers (from Belgium), puts an Orange in it. Kinda gives you a hint that it should be there. So keep going at what your good at and leave the beer decisions to people that actually enjoy beer. dipshit

I will have to try the Rogue Hazelnut Brown, that sounds good.
What all kinds of shiner can people get everywhere?
THe Shiner Black is good, and they had a holiday brewed peach and pecan beer that was really fruity but good. I havent tried their 100 year beer yet.
other shiners: Blonde, leicht, hefeweissen, helles.
As far as festival beer goes, Bonnaroo has Coachella beat by miles with Swetwater Blue and 420, those beers are awesome and i an drink them all weekend. Heineken sucks, but it was refreshing at Coachella.
Some of my other faves.
Olvi (in Finland)
I try all kinds of beer.
What does everyone think of Budwieser ale? I think its okay, nothing super.

Baltika no. 9 is pretty fucking good Russian beer, I've also been starting to find it a lot more easier lately.
Strong and smooth..

I have no clue where you'd find this Belgian gem in the states but it's quite simply the best beer that has ever graced my palate. It's a heavy, rich, strong (11.3%), but feels like honey in your mouth, slightly sweet. Amazing beer. I can't find anything other than wine websites that'll ship it to me for $6/330ml bottle = $36/six pack!
