What temperature do you drink your beers at?  Recently I'm finding I prefer my Belgians closer to cellar temperature than refrigerator temperature.  And even many non-Belgians, given that it is winter and I'm not drinking for any sort of cooling property, I'm finding 45-50F perfectly reasonable.  Am I turning British?

I'm with you Winetarelli, I prefer my beer, depending on style, with a bit more warmth.  Cellar temp is good for me for most beer that I consume.  We did a Sprecher beer dinner at the American Club in Kohler a few years ago, and the brew master monitored the beers all evening with a thermometer, and wouldn't allow any to be served until they came up to the proper temp in his opinion.

I determined long ago, in the case of pilsners and lagers, that the perfect drinking temperature was 34°. At least to my taste.

There is something special about a 32.1 F Pilsner Urquell to me, for sure. But I’m drinking a low, maybe now mid, 50s Allagash Tripel as I type this, and it is great to my taste.

Similarly: NZ Sauvignon Blanc - 37 degrees. Didier Daguenau - 50 degrees.

Allagash Tripel is an excellent beer and I think mid 50's is the perfect temp.
