    My favorite beer in a Scottish beer called Innis and Gunn. My favorite wine is a French rose wine called Cotes De Provence. What is yours?

    The beer I frequent is Alexander Keith's Pale Ale, a favourite is a rather tough call.

    For Wine, I've always been partial to Fat Bastard - but I'm a smoker so I would know little about 'good' wine.

    Dale's Pale Ale is good as a craft brew that comes in a can, therefore is good for backpacking. I do find it a little over-hopped, like most American pale ales, but it really tastes good around a camp fire and the empties are light to pack out.

    Probably Greene King's IPA for beer, I don't really drink wine...

    My favorite wine is French white wine that has been in which the yeast have completely fermented the grape sugar to ethanol. Next, the wine is aged to the point where anaerobic bacteria have completely converted the ethanol to caproate and butyrate causing the wine to smell like rancid goat butter.

    Favourite beers are Belgian abbey beers, with that lovely malt flavour. I would love to do a beer tasting tour through the Belgian abbeys. My first was Grimborgen, which was delightful. I have tried several since, and settled on Duvel (Flemish for 'devil' beer.) as my favourite, which is 7% alcohol.

    For wine, I love a good Australian shiraz, thick enough to stand your spoon up in. I have once tried Penfolds Grange Hermitage, which is definitely the best wine I have ever sampled. But at $ 1,000 per bottle, I will settle for that one taste, which someone else paid for!
