Best brew under 4%....
i really love beer and i gotta cut back, baby coming...my easy drinkers have always been spaten, anything weihenstephaner, the hefeweissbier dark, kristall, right on up to vitus...big fan of taddy porter, actually anything sammy smith and taddy is less than 5, huge fan of dopplebock beers and ommegang for something different...my homebrews are always big flavored beers, I have a choc stout fermenting now...and rcently finished the ahs holiday ale.
oh, so my question, need to cut down on the alcohol, I drink 4-6 beers a day, sometimes one at breakfast, one at lunch and maybe 2 in the evening (16.9 oz, need the bottles for the homebrew), maybe a bit more on the weekend. i'm 42, in good shape, blood test just came back normal, all values. but i WANT to cut down on the alcohol and still enjoy my beer.
so far, i can tolerate pilsner urquell at 4.4 and i found a nice pilsner by Erie brewing at 4.2...hate amstel, can deal with the clauhauster (sp) n/a, but it bloats me and makes me burp a lot.
anything worth trying commercial or homebrew that is 4% or less? i've read about the anchor small beer, but no one can get it for me in jersey.
