Beer I Have Known

I remember studying this in a business course in college.
It was available for a time in one of my favorite bars, but I haven't seen it in a while.

I am on a mission to find my forever beer. As I enter old man-ness, I feel a need to settle-in and find ol' reliable.

My standards are simple: Cheap and American (at least brewed here). So far, my ranking is as follows:
- Schlitz (but it's hard to find consistently around here)
- Budweiser
- Coors Banquet
- Miller High Life
- Lone Star (in my fridge now)
- PBR
- Old Milwaukee

Most of them change places depending on mood, but Schlitz consistently sits at the top.


Beers I want to try, but can't usually find here:
Narragansett
Stroh's
Hamm's
Rainier (just cuz of Longmire)
I'm there with you on the Banquet and Lone Star. I'll drink Miller if I have to, but I prefer those other session beers.

For craft beers, none can beat Rogue. They have such a great selection, even if Dead Guy is about the only one available on this side of the Mississippi, if at all.

Fuller's London Porter is, thus far, my standard for porter. It is on the expensive side however (typically around $9-10 for 4 bottles), and not always easily accessible in these parts so I don't imbibe as often as I'd like.

However, yesterday I made a stop at a grocery store that offers a $10 Choose Your Own 6 Pack option and lo! and behold! among the mix and match options were three beers by Fullers. I got me 5 Fuller beers and one Dogfish head brew.

Jim..No Shiner?

This is my go to beer...if there is beer in the fridge there is Shiner

Good call. Shiner Bock is my favorite, but my objective was to find something cheap. The premium price is really the only reason I left it off the list.

I like Porter.
It's somewhat hard to find in CA though, where it's IPA ad nausea.
The Southgate Brewery in Oakhurst does a very nice Porter.

I've tried most beers that are available at local bars; thus far I've found the IPAs (such as those by Sam Addams) the most appealing, to the point that I can't drink a commercial beer like Budweiser anymore without it tasting like horse piss. Beyond that, I'm not much of a connoisseur.

This Polish beer is so awesome I used to buy it by the case. But a few years ago it could no longer be found in Phoenix.

We just finished making a huge batch of Mango IPAs, annnnd it's on the market in nearly every supermarket here in Kenya. By we, I mean Batelour (local brewery I'm involved in). It's damn good too.

South Gate Brewing Deadwood Porter is the name of the Porter from Oakhurst.
I enjoyed a glass on Labor Day after a glorious day hiking in Mariposa Grove with Mrs. Hov.
