What's the best beer after hockey?

I play in a league and somebody brings beer each week. You never know what brand of beer you will be drinking so it is a good way to sample lots of brands. From your experience what is the best beer after hockey?

I usually drink Coors Light, but after hockey it seems that Budweiser tastes the best.

budweiser is good, you should try Fat Tire Amber Ale: delicious.

The rink I play at has Alaskan Amber on tap, and that's what gets my vote.

As for less abundant beers, Pliny the Elder is fantastic.

PLEASE tell me you're doing a youtube vid on beers! Where you sample each one then at the end teach us how to do a wrist shot with no clothes on.

I don't know Canadian beers so I can't help. I don't drink cheap crap though, bleh. If I'm going to drink Budweiser I may as well piss in a bottle and drink that.

Brooklyn, Troeges, Harpoon, Bluepoint, Sierra Nevada, Anchor, North Coast, etc etc. Micro brews all the way.

Cold, plentiful and cheap. In Vancouver that means something like Cariboo, Shaftesbury, Bowen Island, pill cube, AGD, etc. Most of these beers taste better than generic big name beers like Canadian, Bud, Coors, etc. but are substantially cheaper. Shaftesbury cream ale is my budget beer of choice, if ballin out slightly more I like tall cans of Dab.

Good luck finding it if you dont live in the Badger state though. Its made by a small Wisconsin brewery and is only available here in Wisconsin.
Ive got a lot of out of state friends who love this beer and wish they could get it, but the brewery can barely keep up with the demand for it here in Wisconsin and simply cant make enough of it to offer it nationwide.

We have a no mass produced American beer policy, certain punishment if it is light beer.

But seriously, as long as it isnt the generic beers like Bud, Coors, etc., I am OK with it. If you come to play in Philly ever, try Yuengling. Great after a game.

"Altenmünster hopfig herb" or "Altenmünster Winterbier". If you have a chance to get them, try. Dunno if they sell it in Northamerica though.

Or of course Dr. McGloo's Amber Enema
