Point Bock, Leinie's Big Butt and Creamy Dark. Good times.
In my mind, everything I drank was premium. A lot of malt liquor, though. I'm "thankful" like Marshawn Lynch that times have changed... for the better.
Most anything Canadian. Molson Canadian (never the Golden), Labatt 50 (rarely the Blue), Moosehead, Schooner and Molson Brador when it was briefly available in the USA in the early 1980's.
Stella and Bud Select
Michelob. Wasn't really premium, but had a cool looking bottle.
For me it was all about Boston Lager and Newcastle.
Sam Adams and Amber Bock (not really premium).
I used to love the holiday Amber Bock variety packs. That variety pack earned me a lot of "firsts" in regards to types of beers.
Back in the 80s Michelob was 10 cents more at the American Legion and I gladly paid it.
Samuel Smith's Old Brewery Pale Ale
(and Young's Ram Rod and Young's Special London Ale, which I can't find anywhere in Texas, dammit)
Lots of the Canadian stuff, Watneys Red Barrel, Heineken, Stella, Yuengling Porter & Lord Chesterfield, Stoudts Gold and Scarlett Lady, and one of my favs even to this day, Theakston Old Peculiar.
We called it microbrew
Michelob was top shelf back in the day... like in the 80s...
Blue Moon, 312, and Fat Tire
Sam Adams Variety packs
Boston Lager (still delicious) and Corona (unfortunately it's always skunked, not sure how I ever thought skunked beer was good). Around junior year of college I regularly bought Sam Adams variety backs and I was hooked.
Samuel Adams. Of course, it all depends on how you define craft beer. Boston Lager or Ale is my go-to beer if nothing else is available. In the Southeast, it's Sweetwater, but that is a craft.
I actually had three levels of "premium" beer, Natural Ice and Light plus malt liquors (40 ouncers) were at the bottom, Budweiser was middle, and the highest level was Guinness Extra Stout and Michelob Amber Bock. All beer is premium because it gets you drunk, but premium has levels, cheers!
Back in my under age drinking days (many moons ago) we thought we were doing well if we could land some Michelob because it came in those cool torpedo head bottles. We were really living large though if we could score that top of the line European beer--Lowenbrau.
Shock Top, Blue Moon, and Shiner Bock.
I thought I was a bad ass bring Carlsbad to party's at age 22 lol
Newcastle & Heiniken
I remember the days when we would splurge on the Henry Weinhard's in college. Oh the good ol' days
I started off with craft beer.
I forgot about Corona, you knew the party was good if they had Coronas and limes!!
as soon as i was 21 i got into craft. new there had to be better stuff than aal's. sort of helped that my uncle was very into belgians and stuff before that though.
Yuengling for me. I still very much enjoy it. Molson Canadian was my favorite, but I considered Yuengling a step above. Must say I still enjoy a Molson once in a while, too...
Ayinger, Aventinus, and Paulaner
now guess my nationality
Lowenbrau Dark, Michelob, and Leinenkugel Original were my go tos in the early 90s. Then I drank these and a lot if Boston Lager, Guinness, and Petes Wicked Ale and Lager in college.
Guinness, and Stella (foil top = no brainer).
Bass, Guiness, 420, Stella
A year out of H. school there was a A.B. semi-truck rollover on I-94 in my hometown MI.
We followed the dump trucks and later that night hauled out 23 cases of Andeker...blurriest summer of my life.
Sam Adams was the best beer for me in the early 90's. (still holds a special place in my heart). And of course, Newcastle.
Guinness was my winter go-to-brew back before I had craft.
Corona was my summer go-to-brew... how we've all changed right?
Blue moon with an orange all the way! Man we thought we were awesome!
Bass, Guinness, Old Speckled Hen, etc.......
Heineken, Lowenbrau, and Moosehead
Hoegaarden. Still enjoy it though.
