AlwaysRightBoy: timujin: I know it's made in China and will likely kill me, but I enjoy this quite a bit:

Was just over there, had some Tsingtao (surprised to find it was founded in 1903 by German settlers) and Yanjing beer but didn't try your brand. Was surprised to find their beers were nice and light and washed down the spicy food quite well.

Love the Buddha bottle. I will look for it over here.


It's light and maybe a little sweet, though not in a non-beery way.  It also goes well with spicy food.  I can usually find it at most grocery stores around here.

also...
That's what the Germans did at the end of the 18th / start of the 19th century, they spread over the world and made beer.  Beats how they tried to spread a hundred years later... But anyway.  The oldest beer still brewed in Mexico for instance, Sol, was started by a German immigrant.

/we can also thank them for Tejano music, they brought polka over and the Mexicans had Spanish guitar music and a horrible bastard was inflicted upon the world

Hene, or most of the Shiner line up.  Also, Miller has come out with a new brew called Fortune which is tasty.  Have fun!

Blue Moon actually isn't bad. Can't say the same for PBR or Yuengling.

On a side note for any one in the Chicago area, Off Color Brewing's Troublesome (a citrusy Gose) and Scurry (an Altbier) are excellent choices if you are getting tired of the IPAs. Six-packs are starting to show up in stores and I might be addicted to the Troublesome.

Michelob Amber Bock's not bad at all. Can't speak for any of their other brews, however.

You boys can come to L.I. when you are ready to get seriously tanked. I'll buy a few rounds.

Michelob tastes like carbonated ice tea in which someone left a cigarette butt.

SirEattonHogg: drew46n2:  Good rule of thumb for beer: if there's TV commercials for it, it's shiat.

The Lone Gunman: If you ask for a specific brand in any bar, they'll give it to you.  But, in Philly, if you ask for a lager, they'll give you Yeungling.


That's one of my favorite things about going back to Philly.

I got the following in the email today:


Police are warning all men who frequent clubs, parties & local pubs to be alert and stay cautious when offered a drink by any woman. Many females use a date-rape-drug on the market called ' Beer' . The drug is found in liquid form and is available anywhere. It comes in bottles, cans, or from taps and in large kegs.

Beer is used by female sexual predators at parties and bars to persuade their male victims to go home and sleep with them.
A woman needs only to get a guy to consume a few units of Beer and then simply ask him home for no-strings-attached sex.

Men are rendered helpless against this approach. After several Beers , men will often succumb to the desires to sleep with horrific looking women to whom they would never normally be attracted. After drinking Beer , men often awaken with only hazy memories of exactly what happened to them the night before, often with just a vague feeling that 'something bad' occurred.

At other times these unfortunate men are swindled out of their life's savings, in a familiar scam known as 'a relationship'. In extreme cases, the female may even be shrewd enough to entrap the unsuspecting male into a longer-term form of servitude and punishment referred to as 'marriage'. Men are much more susceptible to this scam after Beer is administered and sex is offered by the predatory females.

If you fall victim to this ' Beer' scam and the women administering it, there are male support groups where you can discuss the details of your shocking encounter with similarly victimized men. For the support group nearest you, just look up 'Golf Courses' in the phone book.


You have been warned!!!

I have another basic rule, if it comes in an aluminum can or a glass bottle it's shiat.

The beer selection here in Russian generally sucks. The baltika lineup is pretty good for the low end, and Lowenbrau serves that purpose well too. When I want to get really fancy, I'll throw down the cash for Czech Budweisers. I also recently found a fancy grocery store that sells the complete product lineup of Wytchwood Brewery, and they have some tasty, tasty shiat.

That reminds me, this should be hitting stores right about now:

Article fails by calling Shock Top a craft beer. The whole point of faux craft beers is to grab shelf space from the real ones, and deceive those who don't know who really makes them.

I wouldn't really consider beers like Blue Moon or Shock Top to be a bad thing if they were at least honest on the packaging about who really brews them. It's the deception that bothers me. I know you can always Ask Google™, but that shouldn't be necessary.

ClavellBCMI: WTFDYW: I like my Old Mil but like my Yuengling Lager on occasion.

You actually admit to drinking Old Millwater??? Do you even have a digestive system???


My digestive system works just fine. I acquired a taste for Old Mil because it doesn't taste like varnish remover like so many hopped up beers do.

Oh, and if you ever find yourself in Kalamazoo, you need to go to the Beer Exchange:

Their beer prices are driven by demand.

Yuengling is really kinda gross; it's too sweet.

It's that way in the bars I've been at in Harrisburg, Scranton, Pittsburgh, and Erie.  The only exception is if you are at a micro-brew bar (like Church Brewworks in Pitt or Victory Brewpub in Downingtown), where ordering just a "lager" will get you the lager they brew.

That being said (bracing for angry feedback), Yuengling is not a great beer.  It is good, but not great.  Don't get me wrong, I drink it fairly regularly and enjoy it.  It is one of the best beers in its price range, but over all, it's kind of "meh".  It is my "go to" beer if I want something refreshing while mowing the lawn or tailgating a football game, but if I'm looking for a good tasting beer to pair with a meal (that isn't hot wings), it's not likely to be a Yuengling.

Just happy to be in Wisconsin; when not feeling crafty, Point Special is all I need, though I do loves me some Yuengling Black and Tan when I can find a friend heading out to PA.


One of the things I miss about being in Chicago is that I don't have access to Point Special .

What I tell people is, it's good cheap beer.  It's not craft brew, nor does it pretend to be.  I would however suggest you try the Black and Tan which is excellent.

If you have not yet discovered this microbrewer, then you should.  They are going to be big.
