Budweiser gives me a terrible headache.

I hate strong beer. My buddy always buys some crazy Norwegian beer or whatever and I can barely choke it down. Definitely not a fan of dark/strong beer. Just give me a nice smooth crisp beer. Bud goes down smooth up here in Calgary. Maybe we brew it better than you guys... who knows.

Nah it's the exact same everywhere. Thats part of the reason it sells so well, and part of the reason why their brewers tend to be engineers and dudes in lab coats.

The fast food argument is just because, from time to time most of us like fast food, but not many would make it their entire diet. It's not home cooking, or a high end restaurant, it's a factory produced product that is the same here as it is in a China.

Also note not every beer outside of macro products is a big dark beer, or one with tons of flavour. I've made my share (and drank my share of commercially available) lagers that aren't full of corn and rice to make them cheap.

Also, not trying to say your choices are wrong, just provided an observation.

There is really nothing wrong with enjoying a macro beer.

Imagine going to a ballgame and drinking some chocolate stouts. Hah.

Perfect summer beer.

Sadly that's generally not available at PNC Park...

Or if you want to go lighter...


The only way I'm drinking something as light as Trout Slayer is if I'm outside and it's 95+ degrees out.

LOVE Mill St. Brewery, but if I had to go with one it would have to be Mill St. Organic.

Favorite: Busch Light

Least Favorite: Busch Light

Weirdest tasting: Busch Light

If I am casually drinking, which is incredibly rare, then I would get Stella to sip on. Quite delicious.

Never really tried any flavored beers. I've had some hard ciders at my friend's place, which is almost like beer for kids.

Big fan. Slowly working my way through all their offerings.

Actually pretty much a big fan of anything Quebec throws out there...McAuslan & Unibroue, especially the Oatmeal Stout and Trois Pistoles.

I've always hated Molson for this. Pilsner is an excellent beer style that is ruined to most people by their crappy ass bunny beer.

Here are my top 10 - in vague order aside from #1.

1. Dale's Pale Ale (how ironic that my favorite craft beer comes in a can...)
2. Weyerbacher Imperial Pumpkin Ale (oh how I wish it were year round...)
3. Great Divide "Titan IPA"
4. Magic Hat "Ravell" Porter (#9 is a decent Pale Ale that gets a lot of noise... this is a fantastic Porter that gets very little recognition)
5. Troegs "The Mad Elf Holiday Ale" (cherry & honey? yes please)
6. Young's "Double Chocolate Stout" (GREAT on tap, decent from nitro can, bad bad bad from a bottle)
7. Middle Ages "Beast Bitter" (I've only ever found it in 12 pack variety packs, with 4 different Middle Ages beers... all good, but this one is why I buy it)
8. Spaten "Optimator"
9. *Black & Tan crafted with Guinness & Harp Lager* not technically "a beer" but it would feel wrong to not include it - Yuengling's canned "Black & Tan" offering is mud in comparison
10. Southern Tier "Choklat" Stout


A few other special titles...


Brewery with good ideas but subpar execution: Saranac - somehow 90% of their beers end up tasting like something that would be really damn good if it wasn't so damn watery. They've rolled out beers like a Vanilla Stout, a Chocolate Lager, and a Caramel Porter and all of them made me wish that it was a brewery like Great Divide or Middle Ages in charge of converting their ideas from thoughts into actual beers. Huge potential if they just worked on the consistency of their beers. As it stands, I'm hesitant to buy anything Saranac other than their "Big Moose Ale", which is a bonafide keeper.

Best Brewery: Troegs - There are just so many great Troegs beers that I had trouble weeding a lot of them out, for the sake of variety. Nugget Nectar is a classic, Troeginator is a beast, HopBack Amber Ale is one of the better modern ales that I've had, and even their Sunshine Pilsner is excellent. The runner ups here are Oskar Blues (Dale's Pale Ale, Ten FIDY, Old Chub - all brilliant beers, but due to availability I haven't been able to have any of their other offerings) and Southern Tier (Choklat, 2x Milk Stout, 2x IPA, Matt & Phin's Extraordinary Ale, "Old Man" Winter Ale, Harvest Ale...).

Beer That I Wish I Could Never Have Again: Coors Light. Enough said. It's trash and it isn't even cheap compared to the equally trash-tasting Keystone/Busch/PBR/etc...

Beers That I Drink At Bars Where Crafts Aren't On Tap: (in order) Newcastle Brown Ale, Yuengling, Labatt Blue

The Beer I'm Drinking RIGHT NOW: Fuller's ESB

Best: Olvi III or Olvi Export. Other big finnish beers (Karhu&Koff mainly) aren't that bad either, I'm just a sucker for Olvi.

Worst: Christmas special beers (brand doesn't matter), my god. Words can't describe how awful those are.

I'm not much of an expert when it comes to beer so don't send me to hell when I post mostly worldwidely-known brands.

My favourite: Heineken, Karhu.

Least favorite: Koff, San Miguel, Lapin kulta.

Flavoured: Haven't had any.

Then there are beers like A. Le Coq and Pirkka that often taste awful but sometimes for some reason they taste better than anything in the world.

Nice selection there. I don't really care for the Ft. Collins chocolate stout: I felt it was too hoppy and over-carbonated, and it just died off after a sip rather than building up the way a good stout usually does. The Brooklyn Brewery Black Chocolate Stout on the other hand is fan-freaking-tastic. I've heard rumors about a spectacular Scout from them called Brooklyn Black Ops that's like $15 for a bomber and kind of hard to find. I'm on the lookout for it so I can try it. I haven't had that Barney Flats oatmeal stout but I'll put that one on my to-drink list.

Epsilon - Do you have an awesome liquor store to buy beer at by you, or do you buy a lot online?
