Wanted to hear suggestions for a good Breakfast Beer (does not have to be a stout). We tailgate for UGA games 10-12 times a year and would love to have a beer for early morning tailgates (we get to the parking lot about 0700). I have not ventured into AG yet, but have done a few PM. Help a brotha out!

Well, Guinness is a big one in Ireland (with a full Irish breakfast); aside from that I'm not sure what else I would want. Maybe a fruit ale?

New Belgian had a coffee Amber ale a while ago. It was kind of like a Fat Tire with coffee in it. That would be a nice idea. Coffee stouts and porters are also good.

I love a nice chewy porter in the morning, especally if it's even a tad chilly outside. Grab a porter recipe and throw in a good amount of flaked oats or flaked wheat to really thicken it up.

I think that a good IPA really wakes me up. Also like an amber. It is that perfect in between where it isn't light and it isn't dark. Not too heavy on the abv either, so you can have a few. That or a nice brown, mild style works well since you will drink all day.
New and improved signature.
