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.
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.
