I usually drink Miller Lite or Natural Light and never try much of anything else unless I visit a restaurant with a micro brewery in it so....


What would someone like me who drinks 12-14 on game day find a tasty treat that I can buy at most regular stores.

It's a light beer, goes down very easy. Some people like to add a slice of orange to them. The orange compliments the beer very well. IMO its similar to Rolling Rock, just has a touch more citrus taste. Great beer. Has more alcohol content than a Newcastle.

Blue Moon or Boulevard wheat.

Gonna guess he doesn't have much option for Boulevard up in Northern Cali.

I don't always drink mass produced beer, but when I do, I prefer Dos Equis. If you're drinking a 12-pack or more, maybe would go a little cheaper. As a cheap alternative, I like Miller's Amber Bock.

If you've got it available, Murphy's Irish Red Ale is very tasty.

What does it taste like?

It's a crisp, malty amber, especially good for a hot day. It seems to have more carbonation than a lot of beers. Not overly hoppy (bitter), and just generally an easy drink. Pretty typical American lager style.

Are you looking for something else that's cheap so that you can down them in a hurry or seriously looking to branch out into the world of non-crap beers? I'm a bit of a beer snob, so my general rule is to stay away from all Domestics and Imports whenever possible and instead look for a good craft brew.

If you're new to the craft world, the best kinds to get into without feeling like they're too weird are generally ambers and wheats. There are tons of them out there, so I won't mention specifics to try - be adventurous!

Not that it REALLY matters, but the beer snob in me requires me to inform you that Blue Moon is made by Coors, Shock Top is made by Budweiser, and Leinenkugels is made by Miller. The beers themselves are fine, but I usually steer clear out of principle.

If I were you, I'd look and see if you can find a 12-pack mixer from a good brewery that has a variety of lighter beers. You'll probably find one that has an amber, a pale ale (or an IPA), a stout or porter, and some sort of wild card. That'll help to start giving you the idea of what's what. Then you can go from there.

Everyone of my friends that tried it, loved it. It's a great summer beer.

if you are looking to drink a shitload..try a real pilsner, crisp, easy to drink, and low alcohol

Boulevard Pilsner

I think I've been ruined on pilsners by the "lights" of the world. I shouldn't hold that against them, though.

Tank 7 is one of my all-time favorites. Man, I wanna go grab one now.

(Saison's in general are incredibly delicious beers, but they do get to be a little sweet if you have a bunch at once.)

Yup, Tank 7 is one of my favorites.
We are so lucky to have it brewed so close...

$10.50 a 4 pack is pretty killer though.

I made one about 10 years ago, with fresh strawberries and it was one of the best beers I have ever had. It was a nice fresh crisp wheat with a slight hint of fresh strawberry on the finish. I still have the recipe around here someplace and I need to brew up another batch.

Everyone of my friends that tried it, loved it. It's a great summer beer.

I think my batch got contaminated.... it was seriously disgusting. I made a couple batches of ginger beer with fresh ginger that was freaking outstanding. Still one of my favorite beers.

i only like them on hot days...but they are worth another look, they have some body and a bit of hop bitterness

Yeah after all that hard work, it sucks when a batch gets infected.

Yep. They've been growing pretty rapidly the past few years. I couldn't even get it in Colorado until about 2 years ago.

We still don't get it up here....yet. I do tie into it when I'm in KC, or even SD around Raipd City, or Deadwood.

Anyone ever used halftime beverage beer club (http://www.halftimebeverage.com/index.htm)? A client of mine told me about them he said he orders on average 2 cases a month.

I had that for the first time a couple weeks ago. Pretty decent, and I'm not a New Belgium fan.

Find the brand Leinenkugles. Choose one of their light beers like Summer Shandy or Sunset Wheat. You will not be disappointed.

It's a good workman's beer if I'm doing stuff inside and out or at a show, I don't have to lug around a glass.

I'd like to know their reaction.I recently took 2 cases of wheat with me on vacation to Tunica and gave a couple away one day by the pool and the people were like damn that is so smooth.

don't buy Blue Moon, that's the garbage white ale. Just pick any other white ale that you see in the store, it will most likely be better than Blue Moon.

But you outta just go with Blvd Wheat. That's a great beer to transition to from light beers if you are trying to expand your beer horizons.

Yeah, you have to take a few pulls to acclimate. It's a damn good beer though.

it's good for a common. Sam's Octoberfest is very malty if i remember correctly.

If you are really feeling frisky, grab an imperial pumpkin beer. I love this time of year and imperial pumpkins are one of my favorite styles.

this is a thread hi-jack...but boulevard showed up on a tap in georgia for the first time I've ever seen...never seen it in a liquor store

i always thought their distribution was limited, but maybe they're expanding?

They're like the 12th largest brewery in the U.S. at this point. They'll be hitting all 48 in the next year or two, I'd imagine.

Regarding Shiner Bock, it's a safe and delicious choice. You can't go wrong with it. It's not going to blow anybody's mind but very few people are going to turn up their nose either.
