In honor of National Beer Day (and completely inspired by Simon’s brilliant post on same), today’s question is: What is your favorite beer? If you don’t like beer what is favorite non-beer beverage?

I don’t know that I could actually narrow it down to a single choice but I do lean towards Scotch Ales like Morland’s Old Speckled Hen and Belhaven. I also really like Broughton’s Old Jock (keep your snickers to yourself) but it is really hard to find on this side of the pond. Beyond that I would never say no to a Fuller’s ESB. Locally, there’s a small chain of brew pubs called Great Dane that makes a fantastic Scotch Ale but it doesn’t seem to sold at retail.

ETA: Apparently I’m an idiot. Old Speckled Hen is in no way a Scotch Ale. Thank you to Pitchblende for educating me.
