One thing with Guinness, there's no bitterness to it at all. It's malty but really smooth. A little thick for sure but no problem drinking it after a game. Not my first choice, but for a 2nd or 3rd beer? Sure.

Pilsner, Bud Light, Coors Light, and Molson Canadian, are the most common ones that I see among teams around here. I'm more of a whiskey guy myself, so they all taste the same to me.

I'm just picturing a shifty-eyed guy in the corner of the locker room taking quick swigs from a bottle of Jack Daniels in a brown paper bag now haha

Schönramer...maybe Stiegl but nothing effing else.

Playing in a Bavarian team, they take beer very serious.
Bring any cheaper beer and you might get crucified in the locker-room.

yeah its pretty luxurious compared to the stuff I had to drink with other teams!

We even have our own "beer manager", a guy who coordinates that there is beer whenever and wherever we play...

Around here, usually Labatt Blue, Alexander Keiths, Olands, Budweiser or Coors Light (cheap but I've got nothing against it).

Lately I've been very partial to the Shiner seasonal Ruby Redbird. Perfect for a hot Texas night in the parking lot after a game.

although I will drink most anything after a game (except the damn strawberry-rita one of our teammates always brings).

I play in the UK just now (Scotland) so I see a lot of Tennents, Miller, Bud and Heineken.

In Vancouver it was usually Kokanee or Pilly.

I have to take issue with the bolded. There is blood, snot, and who knows what all in that shaved ice. It's a small percentage but doesn't seem sanitary. If I have to use zam ice I'll put it in a bag with my beverages inside another bag to keep cold.

Labatt, Molson, and Bud Light for the heavier guys, in that order. As one poster said it may be a Michigan thing. In general I guess if it isn't cheap enough to be sold as a case of cans it isn't meant to be shared in the lockerroom!

There's hair too. That always grosses me out, it's like food once it touches the sink, it goes from fine cuisine to garbage. As soon as hair leaves the head it's just nasty as hell to me.

Still kind of a cool visual... I think it'd make a good beer commercial. Throwing ice from the zamboni into a big tub and stuffing cold ones in... all this beer talk makes me want it to be September and for my league to start up again!

What? No homebrew?

Actually, as I am just going to get back into league play, it's good to know what to look at as my taste in beer is slightly more complex than CL, BL etc. This was born out of a need to keep everyone else out of my fridge while I was at work.

I will pound a few PBR's though. Not hipster. Redneck.

PBR isn't hipster anymore. Hipsters stopped drinking it because it became too hip. Now that it's name has been cleared up its my beer of choice when I'm trying to really tie one on and don't have much money.

Pbr was my dollar can beer of choice at the college bars in Virginia. Nothing wrong with pounding a few of 1893's famous blue ribbon.

Nothing wrong with it at all. In fact, it was the first beer I ever drank, age 14, at a mountain "retreat" with family.
I just find it amusing how it fell in with the hipster crowd. For years it was the go-to at many a country music festival/concert then suddenly all these girly men with sh**ty beards and girl pants are drinking it while bemoaning their existence aboard their fixed-gear bikes (as an avid MTB'er/old guy I refuse to use the term "fixie" lol).
Down with hipsters! Long live the Ribbon!

I live and play in a beer league in Halifax, mostly it's Keith's and an assortment of macros. Keith's and Oland Export are probably the two least common outside of Halifax, other than that it's your usual Labatt Blue, Coors Light, Bud Light, or Blue Light.
