    Grain Belt Premium; in 16oz cans ("The Big Friendly")...the only adjunct lager I still enjoy it!

    I have no guilty pleasures. Even the fizziest and yellowest of AALs have their time and place. Gansett, Stroh's, Miller, and even (nay, especially) PBR are all beers that I heartily enjoy.


    I've always gotten the impression that Stella has a very different reputation and place on the social ladder in the UK than it does in the US. My understanding from what I've heard and been told is that here in the States, Stella has some air of gravitas (whether truly deserved or not), but in the UK it's seen as being rather low-class. Having experienced both, do you find this to be the case?

    Corona, Modelo Especial, Negra Modelo, and Batch 19
    They're refreshing, easy drinking beers that don't have to be nuanced or interesting because they are nothing more than a casual, summer gathering beer.

    Genny Cream and Mickey's Mean Green. Both have a special place in my heart (and liver).

    Stella Artois, great beer to drink with a wide range of food.

    I think 99% of "chick drinks" are disgusting, sugar bombs coloured so they look feminine. And women are expected to like them. There is nothing masculine about whisky or beer.

    Any new craft beer by any new brewery that isn't a phenomenal example of the style. Apparently a lot of BAs frown on their existence

    PBR and Sunset Wheat...just hits the right note sometimes.

    And a big fuck you to the people who respond with Dark Lord or something from Lawson's...are you serious, or are you just so pretentious and insecure that you can't admit you'll drink a beer that might make you appear to be less of an advocate for beer? You suck.

    None. I would actually be ashamed of myself if I was douchey enough to be ashamed of drinking a particular beer.

    But if the question is more along the lines of "what beer that is not well regarded by others do you like a lot", Genny Cream and Kentucky Bourbon Barrel Ale are the first that come to mind.

    No shame at all in saying I'll often get one of the ubiquitous Mexican beers if I'm in a Mexican joint (and the only times I won't are when I'm making an effort to drink less beer overall). Because guess what? Most of the Mexican joints around here only serve ubiquitous Mexican beers.

    Also, tailgating-followed-by-a-sporting-event (but mostly football) pretty much demands Miller Lite (but Bud Light will do). It's Florida, for god's sake, and I want something light and crushable if I'm going to be out in the sun ... and I'm going to be there a while (and probably with a beer in my hand the entire time).

    I'm well aware there are lighter craft styles; hell, I love berliners as much or more than the next guy. But those kinds of days are about the overall experience and the reality is that the majority of those I really like to hang out with don't give a rat's ass about craft beer. Enjoying the company (vs. being a Craft Beer Acolyte) is ultimately what makes those events epic.

    I can kill some Corona with lots of lime shoved in there, if I am in the mood.

    The notion that beverages can be gendered is inherently ridiculous, so I wouldn't put too much stock in the opinion of people who buy into it. After all, it says implies nasty things about someone if they think being gay or female is insulting in any way. I, for one, don't see the point in buying into any notion that narrows the range of beverages I'm "allowed" to enjoy.
