    Most of my friends think that Busch Light is good beer. Bud Light is the expensive stuff, and Molson is just exotic. Wouldn't touch a Leinie cause they don't like dark beer.

    I had a couple of those yesterday..nice beer. I got a bit sick of regular blue moon a while back but this one is nice.

    Tonight I'm drinking a couple of Smithwicks, and I got a 6 pack of Spaten Optimator to try tomorrow warming up for bubbly.

    I love dark beers.... Especially dark ales and dark German beers........

    They dont like Leinie? Well I'd ban them from my house. :p All of their seasonals are great too,some I like more than others.Tell them Leinie's Original Lager is better than any Bud you could drink in the past 20+ yrs.I remember it was pretty good until the mid 80's or so,like so much other stuff they watered down the formula to save money,it pretty much sucks now.

    Sad thing though - I remember not too long ago you could find Leinie's Original in stores here for $16-17 for a case of longneck bottles,a couple-three bucks less than Bud.Now cause of new found popularity & demand,its $24-25,same as Bud,sometimes more even.... <> One of my favs I keep around,especially in summer is PBR longnecks,that tastes as good as it did years ago IMO.Old Style is another fav,not as easy to find around here compared to in years past however.

    PBR is my goto for an American pilsner. It actually has some body and taste. I prefer cans, though. It's something that needs to be ice cold, and bottles warm up too fast, even when power drinking ;)

    Later this afternoon, it will be Two Hearted Ale. Anything from Bell's is outstanding.

    If you liked that one try Weihenstephaner Vitus. I just tried it for the first time a week ago and it was one of the best beers I've ever had.
