Default Summertime Adjunct Lagers

It's Memorial Day weekend, so summer's officially here (although you wouldn't know it if ya lived in Mpls today, cold n rainy). I'm guessing I'm like many other beer lovers out there, and summertime means lots of lawnmower beer. I'm wondering what everyone's favorite not-so-craft light lager is. For me, it's a toss up between Coors' Banquet and good ol' PBR, and my wife is a Miller Lite girl when she's not drinking craft. So my vote is split between those three. Let's see what everyone else thinks.....

MGD64 is my go to lawnmower. Of course the champagne of beers (Miller) wasn't on the list but it runs a close second to me.

I didn't answer because my favorite is my own cream ale.

I am drinking my Fizzy Yellow Beer right at this moment. It's a good lawnmower beer, but all malt and no adjuncts.

Sure it is.... I figured that as a #2 brand for MillerCoors, but I agree, it's better than MGD.

We could count that as 'other'. My goal this summer is to brew something as quaffable and thirst quenching as my favorites. I'm thinking cream ale and wheat beer should be high on that list.

I like a good German or Bo Pilsner... Spaten does the job quite well, also Staropramen or Warsteiner... Sweetwater 420 is a great pool-side beer

Yeah, Spaten and Staropramen are great warm weather brews. I actually think Beck's is pretty satisfying on a hot day. Not a fan of Warstiener, but I do enjoy a variety of German and Bohemian pilsners when it's hot out. I've never thought of those as adjunct lagers though, especially the German ones. Are they? Can they be? Either way..... one of my favorite pilsners in the summer is Summit's. Very nice, refreshing beer.

put craft just because I drink Shiner Hefeweizen with a slice of lemon. You may not call that a craft but it ain't BMC either.

I just picked up a chest freezer and I'm waiting for my temperature controller in the mail, so until I can start attempting to replicate PBR, I'll have to give my vote to PBR.

now that's devotion!!! And a real challenge, tough to brew a good one.



To the 'craft or GTFO' crowd, don't get me wrong... I drink a $h!t ton of hefe's, blonds, and other light craft beers in the summer. But sometimes, don't ya ever just get a craving for fizzy, yellow, thirst quenching liquid America in a can?!
