Only 20, so WAYYYY inexperienced. But the best I've ever enjoyed were:

Guinness - tap only. Can Guinness is f***ing nasty and I've heard worse things about bottled. Popular and for good reason.
Augustiner Weißbier - Wheat beer from Augustiner, independent brewery native to Munich, damn near impossible to get anywhere else. Rich, pretty to look at, I love this beer.

Then of course that magical Christmas tree juice known as gin.

I like bottled guiness.

eww--black and tans are quite tasty however.

I love beer and red wine.  For beers I like a nice dunkelweiss, a balanced sour, a malty non-bitter porter--stuff along those lines.  IPAs and super-hoppy beers can die in a fire.

For red wines I love big, full-bodied stuff with smooth tannins, cabernet sauvignon, syrah, and similar deliciousness.

In my youth (read: prior to about age 40) I used to be all about vodka.  My Saturday nights were spent DJing in clubs and my drink of choice was a good vodka on the rocks with a small splash of Rose's lime juice, but I rarely drink hard liquor anymore.

I prefer just white wine to drink. I really like a nice fume blanc, Semillon (when I can find it) or a dry Riesling. Chardonnay is too sickeningly sweet for me. I prefer very dry white wines.

I have a stash of hard alcohol but I use it for cooking. Most used are: Vodka (Reyka - I really like this vodka! I will enjoy this outside of cooking) and Hennessy cognac. I also use a decent amount of tequila in cooking but I think I just have your average run-of-the-mill brand... Jose Cuervo, nothing special. I also have some sake. I cannot stand drinking sake but use this when I make sukiyaki.

Beers I like lots too many to mention but one I particularly love is the Arrogant Bastard by Stone Brewing company. Also one of note is the Hammerhead Pale Ale by Mcmenamins. Also a big fav of mine is the Lagunitas Cappuchino Stout.

YUM!!!

I also am partial to Islay Whiskeys, like Laphroaig, Caol Ila or Lagavulin. I like others but those are my favorites.

Scotch?  An islay, please.

Wine?  A chewy old vine zinfandel or petit syrah.  A chilled red table wine is finr, too.

Gin?  Any top shelf as a martini.

Beer?  Porter, stout or a light lager.

Mixed?  Kalhua & milk  over ice, mojito, or a Mai tai.

Rye?  Crown or VO and water.

Tequila?  If it's  not in a Margarita it better be super high end.

Schnapps?  Cinnamon, please.

Bourbon?  Only in a whiskey sour.

It all depends what mood I'm in.  Sometimes a cold Miller Lite is all I need.  If I'm at a bar with Guinness on tap, then it doesn't get much better than that.  I love Tanqueray and tonic.  No gin comes close to Tanqueray.  Then there are times when I feel like "The Dude", and I'm in the mood for White Russians.  I also get in the mood for Bloody Marys on occasion too.  :)

Gin and tonic.  If you've tried gin and didn't like it there is a good chance it was the gin, not you.  My favorite is Hendricks.  Second is Bombay sapphire.  Not a fan of most others.

Beer, it depends.  My favorite is Hacker-Pschorr Oktoberfest.  Few places here have it so I also like IPA (Lagunitas is good).  If it's hot as balls I'll just toss back a few miller lights.  About the only cheapie I like.  Almost forgot about Newcastle brown ale, damn good stuff.

Wine.  I like the edges.  Strong Cabernet sauvignons or sweet moscato or moscato d'asti.

I enjoy an occasional adult beverage, but can go for long stretches without touching the stuff.  When I do enjoy, my favourites are:
Wintertime drinks - coffee with Kalua, or tea with Dr, McGillicuddys peach schnapps.  Sore throat or cold coming on - Irish Mist or Grand Marnier.  I also like Crown Royal with ginger ale.

Newcastle Brown Ale

This right here. ^

I don't drink alcohol anymore (seventeen years and counting)...but Newcastle is the beer of the gods.

I also liked Guinness, bottled or tap.

Jack Daniels and Coke
Maker's Mark
Tanqueray
Crown Royal

...and after I'd had a few, pretty much anything I could get my hands on- including finishing other people's half-drunk drinks (which were still half full, after all) after they'd left the bar.

I am in a much better place today, though.

I know, I'm spoiling the good-time vibe of the thread. Sorry. Moving on...
