There are several, schaefer and watermelon dorado were the first beers I thought of.
"Molson Canadian" Ok, around here it's nothing fancy and couldn't been any further from "micro, craft, ect". However, I love the grainy aftertaste I get and I love the price point on sale $29.99 a 24pk (Canada that's good sadly).
As of about 10 minutes ago, infected 15' BCBBW. The tart notes add a nice dimension.
Now, I'm not saying its better than the typical BCBBW, but hell, I like it!
Narragansett Lagger and Dell's Shandy are my summer and lawn mowing beers respectively. And I can't watch baseball without conjuring the mental image of my Grandfather bitching about the good old days when all Fenway had was 'Gansett.
Blue moon and Newcastle brown ale. Drink less Newcastle these days, but blue moon is still my go to when nothing exciting is on tap.
Tecate/Modelo/Pacifico/Bohemia (great w/ Mexican food)
Orion Beer ("FOR YOUR HAPPY TIME")
The occasional malt liquor like Colt 45, country club or Olde English (btw, stronger ABV here on the west coast; OE back east is only around 6%, IIRC). I would also say Haffenreffer's Private Stock malt liquor (for nostalgias sake) but someone made the stupid decision to stop making it. Apparently the brand is now owned by Pabst (along with pretty much every other retro brand) but is no longer brewed and there are no plans to bring it back
Never thought I would say this but since I moved here to Arizona, I enjoy the occasional Michelada. Great brunch/hangover treat but I avoid that pre-mixed garbage Budweiser puts out (make your own or just order a Bloody Mary and throw some Mexican beer in there). Model Chelada is not half bad though (for a Chelada)
Be sure to try Bohemia or Victoria next time you're in Mexico or in the southwest. Victoria is more of a Vienna style lager (amber) but I think Bohemia is an even better pale lager than Pacifico (my 2nd favorite, Tecate 3rd)
The Haffenreffer brand had been owned by what is now "Pabst" - parent company, S&P Corp. owned the brand since buying Falstaff (inc. Narragansett) in the mid-1970s - so a decade before they even bought Pabst. Narragansett had owned the Haffenreffer brands since the mid-1960s (the companies were both owned by members of the Haffenreffer family at the time).
Two heirs of Haffenreffer (Peter Haffenreffer and Nick Shields) were able to re-gain control of the brand around 2010 (apparently it had always been a licensing deal under Falstaff and Pabst ownership) and began having it contract-brewed at F X Matt and The Lion using the corporate name of "Haffenreffer & Co." under the dba of "Private Stock Brewing Co." (<website had been up even after the company closed, until recently hacked). That attempt failed in 2013, and Shields went on to open a flavored water company making "Spiked Seltzer".
In theory, someone could come along and re-license the brand from the Haffenreffer group - and it is surprising that no one has, given the relatively good rep the beer had as one of the better malt liquors. Perhaps both Pabst and MillerCoors figures they have enough malt liquor brands and it would only cannibalize their existing market.
King Cobra....times were desperate for a while
ZIMA! ZIMA! ZIMA ! .....WAS IT BEER? I DON'T CARE , I LIKED IT! lcehouse for my cheaper beers. But also like the OP , the nostalgic beer or drinks for me are your JOOZE, FOUR LOKO type cocktails. Back in the 90s it all started my affection for sweet berry ghetto juice started with Crooked I special Brews. Yeah they are hard to get past the intial first couple of swallows of the maltitude in the flavor. But after that nothing but in your face perfect flavors and balance....12 percent abv helps too.
molsen Canadian,goose island ipa,heineken.
When it gets really really hot out, and I'm at a BBQ in the daytime my all day go to is , wait for it, yes, Coors light citrus summer brew , it is a great all day drinker in 90 degree heat......
I did a search on this thread and saw that I am the 9th person to list Genny Cream Ale.
I was hoping you would chime in on this! You gave me more information than those guys at Pabst. This is their email:
I hope the "new" Narragansett can somehow re-acquire the rights to the brand. It would be in good hands with them, I think. Thanks for the information!
Was a huge fan of the original Late Show with David Letterman on NBC. He used to have a segment called Crushing things with a Steamroller. Someone wrote in requesting a cooler of beer. So, Dave's prop department gave him a little styrofoam cooler brimming with ice and cans of Schaefer. Dave looked into the camera with his Alfred E. Neuman grin and said, "ah, Schaefer, the beer to crush when you're crushing more than one." Cut to the exploding cooler with steamroller crushing it. One of my favorite television moments EVER!
Drank loads of Victoria and Montejo last year in MX... rum and Cokes, too... can't all be beer I guess
King Cobra Malt Liqour
Moosehead. Loved it on anniversary run with my beautiful wife about 10 years ago before I knew what craft was. I need to do that again.
In Niagra Falls.
For some reason I kind of like the Trader Joe's Botswain IPA and DIPA beers. I know they are not very IPA like and poorly rated, still, I find them tasty.
The one on sale.
Leinenkugel Summer Shandy
Corona with lime
Blue Moon with orange
Sam Adams Cherry Wheat
I have no problem at all consuming these when the times right.
Grainbelt Premium Big Friendly's
These are nothing to be ashamed of! Just because it isn't barrel-aged or dry-hopped to oblivion doesn't mean its not good.
Full disclosure: I have way too much nostalgia wrapped up in this beer to rationally argue why I like it or why anyone else should even try it.
Stella Artois. It's probably the only cheap beer that will drink (except maybe Negra Modelo when I'm at parties with my Latino friends), let alone the only beer that I like drinking out of the bottle more than a glass.
Lol, looks like lots of guys still have an occasional taste for the BMC stuff wheter it's a simple Bud or Coors Lite or any beer they grew up cutting their teeth on. But it shouldn't be a GUILTY pleasure. It's still beer just enjoy It, except Steel Reserve that's not beer, not sure what that stuff is.
Genesee Bock only abou $8 a 12 too!
Tried it recently and was pleasantly surprised, considering regular Cobra tastes of formaldehyde. Never touch it at Stamford Bridge!
Might be two different beers.
In the US, "King Cobra" is a 6% malt liquor brewed by Anheuser-Busch.
In the UK, it's a MolsonCoors product - a 7.5% "strong beer".
I didn't even drink during the only match I've gone to London for, we drank hard before but not in The Bridge haha, I was awfully close to those noisy stoke supporters
BUD, MGD, Strohs, etc....however in my old age I consume a lot of Yuengling Lager, but when summer comes I will be packing in the Narragansett 30 packs....
The Legendary PBR!
Sam Cherry Wheat
Bud Light Lime
Any of those Lindeman's "Beers"
All of them, including mauwt likka
