Shiner Bock: never really liked it, although I spent many years in Austin where it was a staple, so you'd think it would at least appeal to some kind of past-era-local-pride. It was always just kinda "meh" to me.

Smh, I know its not the best beer out there, but if I go to a party and there is Shiner Bock instead of BMC then I'll be a very happy camper. I like it because it has "drinkablility", its a beer you can easily drink a 12 pack with buds, and it has a great taste (sorry to make it sound like BMC commercial.)

But don't worry I do follow, to each their own.

I don't know half of these half as well as I should like; and I like less than half of them half as well as they deserve.

If I am going to a party and am going to bring a 12 pack anymore, Shiner is my go to. Unless I can find Boulevard for about the same price, but typically not. I think shiner is very drinkable.

Bud should go ahead and change their adds to "BeerBong-ability" or "Shotgun-ability"

There have only really been 2 beers I haven't been able finish.

One was so long ago I don't remember the beer itself but the brand was Leinenkugel.

The other, I had last weekend: Sam Adams White Water IPA.
The pine taste was so strong, it was like drinking a Christmas Tree.

Also: I finished it, but I wasn't a fan of Guinness. Got it on tap. It was way to dry for me.

For an easy drinking Shiner beer, I honestly like the Blonde and Light Blonde.

Other than the obvious Samuel Adams and Dogfish Head selections, I would say IPAs are most often crappier than the other styles...

Victory HopDevil & HopWallop
Green Flash West Coast IPA
Southern Tier 2XIPA
Smuttynose Big A
Clipper City Loose Cannon
Sixpoint Bengali Tiger

I don't consider any of these to be worthy of an A rating, but that's just my opinion. It may sounds like blasphemy, but there are a lot of beers which fall under the radar that are wayyyy better than these choices.

I also can't stand when an IPA is sweet, malty, thick, or high in alcohol for the sake of being high in alcohol - Defeats the purpose and the beauty of the style. That's why I prefer my homebrews more than anything because I've learned to tailor them to suit my own tastes.
