    Anybody mention Natural Light yet. Not even going to try to defend or rationalize it. It was my first beer (or should I say 6 beers) when I was 16. I then thought it would be a good idea to go to work (mind you - never had a beer not to mention 6) and long story short learned the valuable life lesson that showing up at work completely bombed is seriously frowned upon. I like to think I made my parents proud that day.

    Grain Belt Premium if it's a long night of drinking lagers
    Bud Light lime for bad hangover days while camping in the summer
  5. Sapporo and Hite. Asian beers ftw. And uh.. Blue Moon.
  6. Respectfully... Camping deserves a separate ice chest with good beer. Camping beer for me would be canned IPAs. If I want to drink all day long at the River on a boat, silver bullets do it for me.

    I don't mind the non-lite macro lagers. A High Life, Budweiser, or PBR once in awhile is just fine. I really don't like MGD though, or any "lite" beer. Yuengling is kind of a class of it's own, a lot more flavor and body than most macros.

    Yeah, rice lagers are OK. Light and refreshing, with enough flavor.

    Most people here seem to think 21st Amendment Hell or High Watermelon is crap, but I can crush several six packs over a camping weekend . . . light and refreshing, slightly more alcoholic than water.

  10. Corona. It may not be a great "beer" but it is the perfect "whatever you want to call it" on a hot day at the beach or by the pool.

    Ice cold Natty Light on a hot summer day
  12. Rolling Rock.... Growing up I thought there was nothing cooler than my dad and his buddies ordering "a bucketah rocks" with their wings!
