    Michelob and Michelob Light. Not available in my little cow town and getting difficult to find in my state's biggest city. If I stumble across them while looking for different craft beer I'll buy a twelve pack but I don't go on a quest for them.

    Come to think about it ive never seen Budweiser on tap. Maybe when I was like three and my dad took me to the VFW , but I only ever see Bud Light on tap. Weird

    PBR, I believe is now contract brewed by Miller. So I will take that one. I used to drink MGD a lot in college. Bud has its times, usually if there is nothing else. At work we recently did a blind tasting of Wit beers, and Blue Moon was the clear loser against other craft options, but it has its place.

    I'll enjoy a Blue Moon every now and then; it's nostalgic for me since it was sort of my gateway.

    If no craft options are available, I'll also take the following:
    PBR (tall boy cans, please - let me re-live my college days)
    Killian's Irish Red (which is pretty darn tasty on tap)
    Amber Bock (again, pretty darn tasty on tap)

    Strictly speaking BMC means Bud, Miller & Coors. Of those I don't like and won't drink any of them.

    If you mean mass produced American beers made by breweries that pre-date the craft beer movement then there are a few I can drink without being disgusted:

    Old Style
    Genny (Cream Ale, 12 Horse or Bock but not regular genny or Genny light.

    of course some of these breweries have been bought up by Inbev or MillerCoors but Goose Island is owned by Inbev and it is still great beer.

    Killian's, and its a pretty easy call. 2nd would be some of the Blue Moon Seasonals like the Valenica Amber and Winter Abby. The regular Blue Moon doesnt do it for me. Its awful from the can as well.

    If it counts: Labatt Blue, the beer always found in the cooler at family gatherings on my mom's side. In the last few years, Saranac, Sam Adams, and Lake Placid have found their way in (and mostly by other peoples' doing), but Blue is always available. It's got a special place in my heart.

    Same goes for Genny Lager, as it was my dad's father's drink of choice decades ago.

    And to round it all out, Miller High Life was the cheap beer of choice in my early 20's, when my beer geek friends would occasionally buy it for post-run or lazy BBQ session beer.

    Including their faux craft offerings, I, on occasion, and if nothing else is available, like and may drink:
    1. Hamm's
    2. Busch Light
    3. Rhinelander
    4. Sconnie
    5. Blatz (if from a bottle)
    6. Batch 19
    7. Third Shift
    8. Blue Moon Belgian White

    But will avoid at all costs:
    1. Miller Lite
    2. PBR
    3. Budweiser

    What does a canoe and coors light have in common?

    A: They're both pretty f'n close to water...

    I live in Florida, I fish all summer, and it's scorching hot.

    Coors lt and Bud lt are a staple when I'm on the water. Now, If its a booze cruise with the wife and dog, I go 60 min and 2 hearted...

    I suppose BMC rules out Heineken and Carlsberg which I would have answered. Inbetween Budweiser, MGD, and PBR (and I guess PBR is out of the question too come to think of it, so MGD it is) I would go with PBR first and MGD as a close second. As much as PBR has a light corn taste to it (and I don't object to corn, I don't think corn is an unpleasant taste, either in my beer, tortilla chips or canned varieties), it still has a pleasant taste to it, which is to some degree shared by MGD which I also enjoy. Budweiser isn't bad tasting, but they've obviously focused on eliminating as much taste from their beer as possible, I don't dislike it, but there's nothing to dislike. I could drink a case of Budweiser, yet what would be the point. PBR and MGD wins on simply having taste, and the taste that's there I like, rather than it having tons of it.

    Budweiser, I started drinking this about 36 years ago when I was 15 years old because that's what my dad had in the fridge, I still drink a few when I'm cutting the grass,working on the truck or car and blacksmithing. It has it's place sometimes. When I was growing up Budweiser stood for

    PBR is decent, even after it warms up a bit. More flavorful than your typical AAL. Also not BMC, but I think it's an appropriate answer.

    I also had some Blue Moon Valencia Amber Ale recently. It was actually pretty good.

    Rare and King Henry, obviously.

    Not that I've had them, I'm just saying it before someone else does.

    If Coors is the banquet beer, Miller the champagne of beers, and Bud Light is the party beer, does anyone else fear special occasions???
