It's spelled "Yuengling", and it's my favorite. Nevertheless I won't argue with the "crap-beer" assessment as it is certainly nothing special.

Any post that considers "ying ling" 'good beer' should be disregarded.

is that how it's pronounced?  I always wondered.

It's also pronounced "crap-beer".  HTH

Micro-brew is great, but the best kind of beer is free beer... WUStL pwnz.

I spent my undergrad in Pittsburgh.  And dollar Yuengling was a godsend.

It is, by far, the best inexpensive beer out there.

Noone has mentioned boston yet? The northeast has amazing microbreweries. Everyone around here brews. My friend in UG brews his own beer by the keg (all you can drink, mmmmm). You can't go wrong.

Going to: Brooklyn 08/19

OK so I'm a big time beer geek.  My cellar currently has almost 100 different beers.  Before I stated my Top 5 Midwest in no particular order is Great Lakes, Three Floyds, Victory, Bell's, and Goose Island.  GoosIsland has a ton of variety, you just need to know where to find it.  Being in Chicago, it's rather easy for me.  Probably the best college for good beer in the Midwest is Michigan.  It is a VERY mature beer market there.  Ann Arbor Brewing does some very unique things.  There are also 2 other brewers in town, plus easy access to Bell's and New Holland. 

Ann Arbor also has the Beer Depot, a nice little beer shop dontown.  The buyer there, Brian, is a HUGE Belgian fan (as am I).  He regularly stocks a couple hundred Belgians and is one of the few places in the state to get bottles of Westy 12. 

The east coast is also another haven for good beer.  Boston as some nice brews and as you move to New York you have Ommigang, which does Belgian stule ales.  Brooklyn brewers is also solid.  The south sucks, not worth mentioning.  Out west, WOW!  Oregon is probably the craft brewery capital of the US.  And of course in California you have the difficult to find Stone Brewery.

Well, I could go one for another day or so but that's it for now.

If we're talking accessibility then DC has the Brickskeller.

If anyone's not been there.  there beer menu is about 20 pages in 7 pt. font.

A great place to go, especially in the winter when it's snowing outside.

Brickskeller: Have not been there but they have a great reputation for having well over 1000 beers on their menu, though not all in stock at the same time.  Is on my list for a visit next time I go to DC.

ilsox7,

I am bowing to you -- you are officially a God.  You have a beer celler -- I've never even heard of such an idea.  I must work toward this.

And I'm impressed that you give a shout-out to New Holland -- definately one of my favorites.

Did you go to Michigan?  If not have you ever been to Ashley's Pub on State Street?  They have like 60 beers on tap all the time -- it's heaven.

And Leopold Bros... ever been there?  If so, what do you think?  

I think I've just not tried enough varieties of Goose Island.  I trust your judgement that it's a great brewery.

And any idea about why the south has so little decent beer -- I'd like an opinion from, ya know, a God.
