Default ...one of those, a couple of these...

I will be starting to make my own beer VERY soon. So I an calling on you to help point me in the right direction. I used to drink Rolling Rock, but anymore it tastes like lite beer. I do not like the bitter beers either. What are some good beers I can get from the store to sample?

Thank you in advance.

You should post where you live. Some of the best beers in America are only available in their own regions (unfortunately for us that don't live there).

Looks like that's closer to Chicago than to Indianapolis.

If you plan on bottling, make sure those new brews you try are not in twist tops.

It is REALLY close to South Bend and Notre Dame. Northern Indiana, close to Michigan.

You should be able to find Bell's (Kalamazoo MI), Three Floyds (Hammond IN) or Goose Island (Chicago) pretty easily. Some of their more approachable beers:

Bell's: Oberon, Amber Ale, Best Brown, Pale Ale, Third Coast Ale
Three Floyds: Calumet Queen, Gumballhead, Pride and Joy
Goose Island: 312 Wheat, Summertime, Kilgubbin Red, Honkers Ale, Hexnut Brown Ale

Try a hefeweisen. Most people like those, even bud light drinkers.

Also, experiment a little. Some good beers that are still pretty mild are Pete's Wicked Ale and Shiner Bock. Very good beers IMO. But really, this isnt something you need advice on. Go to the liquor store, pick out a beer. You will either like it and have discovered a palate that you didnt know you had, or you hate it and you are out $7.

I love Honkers Ale. Probably too bitter for this guys taste though.
