Guinness is always a good standby when we go out to eat.
I really need to get into brewing my own beer.
If you like Arrogant Bastard but feel it lacks something, try Stone's IPA and definitely try their Ruination. Ruination is on my top 5 list. I, almost exclusively, drink California IPAs and Imperial Ales. Also, look for Double Bastard. If you can find it, you won't be disappointed.
I'm thinking about throwing a small brew setup into my garage also.
