There are a fair number of "craft" beers that are owned by BMC, including a couple of my favorites Blue Moon and Shocktop, and also Hoegaarden (not bad, not my fave though). Being owned by a macro doesn't automatically make them bad. I think beer snobbery has gone too far when a breweries ownership *alone* makes one pass up a quality beer by assuming its the same as the main brands.

Aside from that rant, my favorite session beer of the last few years has been Yuengling lager. Crisp and refreshing, with a backbone that knows what it is. Respectable, and reasonably priced to boot.

Yuengling. Didn't like the first time I tried it, but now I do and you can't beat the price. I agree about the snobbery going a bit too far. I like blue moon with an orange slice. Good stuff.

I wouldnt say the yuengling is a guilty pleasure, while it may not be my favorite beer its a decent beer, its not brewed by ABinbev, and its american owned.
That being said, I love corona and a lime or bud light lime on a hot day. Its usually my goto 4th of july or cinco de mayo drink

Several years at this point. It only comes individually in large cans (at least, that's the only way I've ever seen it).

I'm honestly not much of a fan of most BMC products, including the "craft" type stuff like Blue Moon. I'll drink it if someone offers me one but I don't seek it out. Actually, I was looking at AB's website the other day and I was surprised at some of their properties. I couldn't say I'm a fan of any of them though.

Around here pretty much the only "craft" beers available at the bars are blue moon or Sam Adams, so I drink those quite often. I'm also not afraid to admit to drinking pbr or Coors light. It's damn refreshing.

Yuengling for sure. I grew up a 10 minute walk from the brewery...I was pretty much bottle fed the lager.

Pabst. Or Schlitz. Or Miller. Or whatever. It all has its time and place. Oh and there is nothing "guilty" about it.
