I don't really have any "guilty pleasure" beers. Occasionally my wife picks up any given alcopop (Mike's Hard something, Bartles and Jaymes, whatever) and I've been known to enjoy one or two.

If I go that route, I like the national brews from different places around the globe. Carib or Kalik, or if I feel like going even lighter Imperial.

And occasionally I'll get the 30-pack of Genesee. I guess that's about rock bottom.

you're either going to love it or think it tastes like cough syrup and absolutely hate it.

I don't feel guilty about it but here are a few beers I enjoy that beer snobs (and TheBeerist) will give you hell about.

PBR at parties and when you want something cheap.

Miller High Life with a lime stuffed into the bottle when I'm feeling like being back in the islands.

Michelob lager. Because it's just a good beer.

Sapporo with sushi or pretty much any meal.

I'm not sure who pissed in TheBeerist's Kool-Aid. Sorry, buddy; it appears someone has hit one of your hot buttons.

I also have no small experience in the craft brewing industry. I can say that while he's somewhat right, he's also somewhat wrong. "Hard if not impossible"? Please.

Anyway, there's no reason to feel guilt enjoying something that doesn't send beer snobs over the moon. There's times I just don't want to be challenged by my beverage; I just want a farking beer. Hell, last week I downed a quart bottle of Yuengling Premium after mowing the lawn. When I buy beer, I usually buy Grolsch swing-tops so I can re-use the bottles! Hell, that's what I'm drinking right this second. I actually like the stuff.

Keystone Light... aka "a Stone." Plus the Keith Stone commercials are awesome. My go to beer on the golf course, fishing, etc. It's light enough that it gives me a sense of hydration. Not to mention I can drink half a 30 pack through out the day and still function in the evening.

Corona with Lime. Usually reserved for the beach, but I can drink one or two if its warm out.

Wouldn't call them guilty pleasures, but Yuengling, Miller Lite, PBR, Bud Light and High Life will do if they're on special at the bar.
