not knocking Bell's completely... I'm on board with you on Two Hearted. MW Pale is good too, but not thrilled with their Amber

something about West MI... maybe it's Lake Michigan water; New Holland and Founders makes some tastygood beers too.

I happen to like most wheat beers, and have yet to find Oberon "overrated". Now I'm a day behind! Not sure how I will make it up. I *could* drink 2 tonight (if I can even find any now!), but I still missed out on enjoying it yesterday! Can't go back in time.
I know you like it. I'm just razzing you a bit.

Oberon is probably one of the best American wheats out there- and I have a friend who just loves it. Since I'm not a wheat beer fan, I don't normally drink it. But I do love teasing you!

I know you don't like wheat beers. That's why I gave you a "like" for your comment, even though it did sting a little...

:b

FYI - I did get a 6 pack last night and had a bottle and it was very good. So take that all you haters!

I was just upset yesterday because I forgot the release day and the young lady at work who isn't even old enough to legally drink knew when it was!! I told her it was yesterday and she said, "No, I think it was Monday." WHAT?? <check phone>... AW damn!

I'm with you on that. There is no shortage of great beer here, and there are beers from pretty much every brewery that I do not like. But Bells, IMO, seem to produce more great beer than most. I do like Founders for dark beer. Their Pale Ales are ok, but not as much my thing.

New Holland makes some great beer. I even like their Saison, and that's not a style I would normally think I would like. Love the Dragons Milk.

And I've picked up a few bottles from Greenbush (I think that's the name...) and so far have really liked what I've tried of their stuff. I dont' even know where they are!

Really? I thought last year's Oberon was particularly good. Go figure.

I chalk it up to evolving tastes. I used to love it, but now I can't stomach the thought of drinking a wheat. Oh well, that's why there are so many styles to choose from!

Homer, you should know by now that the end of March is Oberon Day. You don't need a reminder when it's Christmas, or New Years. For the haters of the style, Why post here? I like tradition, I have Turkey for Thanksgiving, Prime Rib for Christmas, Ham for Easter, Oberon at the end of the cold season here in Michigan. So many bars have it on tap for the summer, when usually the offer is BMC only.

So you don't get left out of the loop again Homer, Today April 1st is KBS day. You better get there quick or it will be gone.
