Beer is good. I am excited about posting this due to my love beer and my desire to have these my island. Here are my top five:

1. Blackbeary Wheat by Long Trail Brewing Co. It is blackberry tastiness in a bottle. It is an anytime beer and a great 6 pack to bring to parties. You will stand out when everyone else is bring coors light, bringing the beer that is too classy to chug.

2. Grand Cru by Allagash. It is 7.5% abv, so it isn't messing around. It is served in a goblet type glass, so you feel respectable. Respectable until you get really drunk because you didn't realize you were drinking beer with such a high alcohol percentage. It brings me back to a time when I drank way too much while trying to lure a young applicant to the md phd program, passing out, her leaving early in the morning, and me not waking up or remembering much of the night before. This nostalgia will help me pass my time on the island.

3. Real Seal Ale from the North Coast Brewing Company. It is delicious. It is my all time favorite beer. I get it at the burger place that Whitney so fondly remembers from his trip.

4. Boddington's Pub Ale. It was originally brewed by Strangeways Brewing company. It is best via draft, poured as a 3/4 pint with a wait and a top off, but, like guiness, can be served in the special can with the widget allowing for the production of the tiny bubbles. It is light, it is refreshing, I would have to have it on my island.

5. Hoegaarden originally produced in the Brouwerij de Kluis by Pierre Celis in Hoegaarden in Flanders. I must have oranges on the island that I can add to this extremely light wheat beer. Otherwise, I am not going.
OR a ginger beer so I can have dark and stormys. I can't really decide. I will also have to be able to bring a dark rum with me if I am going to have this, but I don't know if there will be room on my boat.
