You have to be kidding me! I bought a 6'er of Blatz once as a test because it's the only beer my old high school history teacher (parent's friend) would drink. That stuff is horrible! I seriously watned to like it because....well it's freakin Blatz! just couldn't do it. Couldn't even drink it for beer pong.

we "have" to like blatz, schlitz, old milwaukee, etc....lol!

PBR is good, but it gives me the worst beer sh*ts the next morning. So, I only drink it when I'm due for a good cleaning.

That's funny, I get the absolute worst beer schitz and pharts from Budweiser. Not to mention guaranteed next morning hangover, even with just one beer on the night. I avoid standard Bud like the plague for that very reason!

Sam Adam's Oktoberfest, never been impressed by a Sam Adam's beer, only ever felt a reaction of it's ok but not great to their beers, however this is up near the top of my Oktoberfest list out of more than 30 varieties tried.

Southern Tier.

I had never heard of them. It was just another beer in a huge cooler of microbrews. The only reason I chose them was that I had to pick out 2 more beers to flesh out a DIY 6-pack. To me, it was just two slot-fillers from a no-name microbrewery that I wish I didn't had to buy to flesh out the sixer.

Whoa.

The beers were fantastic! I became an instant fan.

When I first saw the labels, they reminded me of a couple of high school kids trying to be like BMC. They just had that polished look to them that was absurd for such an unheard of brand. It looked bold and brash.

Southern Tier and Goose Island (which is local to me) are now my two "safe bets" for craft beer. They make stuff that is easy-drinking, has some mass-appeal, not particularly weird, and goes down better than you'd imagine (in 6-packs). Of course, with the bombers or 4-packs, all bets are off. But Southern Tier impressed me just with their honest, quality, representations of a style.

Lived on Busch Light in college and I still absolutely love the stuff. I am totally into the beer scene, love IPAs, Belgians, stouts, even saisons, but I do not really consider myself a beer snob. I always keep some Bud in the fridge for friends and family that aren't into the beer scene, and I will never pass up an opportunity to smash a Busch Light. Brings me right back to my rickety college house with the beer stained ceiling, crooked stairway, matted carpet, dishes piling out of the sink, spitters on every flat surface, and a glorious case or keg of Busch Light always on hand...phenomenal.
