As always with these contests we publish some of the more memorable responses we receive. Very interesting to see what people are drinking; we’ve got everything from Bud Light Lime to Rogue Arrogant Bastard
Even though I LOVE most beers, my go to favorite is Holy Macrel’s Panic Attack. Grabbing a four pack and splitting it with my husband at home on our balcony overlooking the New River is my ideal evening in. I like to think I’m a cheap date!

My favorite beer is Samuel Adams Imperial Series Double Bock and I love to drink it on Ft. Lauderdale Beach.
Bud Light Lime someplace outside near the water!
Let’s keep it simple and go with a Sam Adams. Best place to drink it is wherever there’s a breeze and a little music in the background…anywhere in Miami!
Favorite beer this season is Abita Amber. I love that it now comes in a six pack and love to drink it on my back porch!
Becks Dark drunk cold at Scully’s Tavern would make me happy.
Amstel Light at Shuckers
Michelob Ultra, THE BEACH!
