Thumbs up, Weihenstephaner Vitus is the best wheat beer I've tasted. OP, you need to try it seeing as you like Erdinger. Schneider Weisse is another good wheat beer that's worth a try and maybe easier to find.

If you want something a bit fancier then pick up a couple of the Trappist beers, they're special. Chimay Blue Cap is available in a lot of supermarkets or if you have a decent off license nearby try a Rochefort 10.

After years of not drinking beer, now back into it again but I avoid the big brands as there is so much craft to try!

Recently I've had:
The Kernel Table Beer
Odells IPA
London Fields Hackney Hopster

However my recent favourites are:
Windsor and Eton Brewery Knight Of The Garter Golden Ale
Moogbrew Bastard Bunny IPA
Siren Craft Liquid Mistress Red Ale

All different but great!

I don't drink much nowadays, but when I have a beer it usually ends up being a bottle of Budweiser Budvar, not to be confused with the American pisswater. Just recently tried their Dark version- lovely!

When I was in London last year I did see Lapin in some random foodstore..
For me It´s a crazy thing to go in to a food store and buy alkohol :D Sweden got alkohol monopoly, so we only got one retailer (legaly anyway :lol: )

Facetious answer (copied from Jim Ross): My favourite beer is cold and free.

More accurate answer: For ages, I was a real ale traditionalist. But I've finally got on board with the craft revolution, and I love pretty much anything Brewdog put out. Hop Fiction Pale Ale is a really great summery beer, and Jack Hammer IPA is absolutely insane!

Any I'm not fussed lol!!!.

I like Italian beers, moretti, nastro azzuro.

But I'm a vodka drinker really, obviously grey goose is a favourite, snow queen, Kauffman and loads more. I hate with a passion any Smirnoff vodkas or anything cheaper!

Probably Warsteiner and Bitburger. I am partial to the odd bottle of Duvel and that Kriek cherry beer.

There is nothing better than a good Vita Malz - but I guess that one doesn't really count as a beer. 8-)

Managed to get a case of Asahi on the cheap from work once since it went short-dated and it was quite nice :) . Nobody buys it all in the wholesaler where I work so I'll just wait for the next batch to come close to sell-by and get reduced :lol:

Mainly though I drink ales, stouts etc.. Favourites at the moment are Dr Thirsty (Wychwood), Slaters Top Totty and Guinness West Indies but there are always so many more to try!
