Can't explain it, but I still almost always have some PBR around, and I like it once in a while.

Let me explain that in high school my favorite beer was Deschutes Black Butte Porter (back when they were a Micro), and in the 13 odd years since, my personal quest has been to find/make the bitterest, most aromatic, full-bodied IPA possible.

I have been drinking great beer for a long time, I just like the crap too sometimes.

Anyone else?
I plan on living forever. So far, so good! - unknown.

I always keep some bud light on hand... for killing slugs in the garden.

The sports bar across the street from me and next to the hockey arena serves 2 dollar pbrs, as well as a crappy beer selection. During IHL hockey season, I'm there at least 2 times a week if not more...

So I've taken a liking to's either that or dudweiser.

I gotta tell ya, just between us girls, that Revvy is HOT. Very tall, gorgeous grey hair and a terrific smile. He's very good looking in person, with a charismatic personality... he drives like a ****ing maniac! - YooperBrew

I can love a Miller or Bud or whatever I have in my hand at any particular time.

It's just different beer. It's a free country, so you can like it or not.

I always have a couple of Mooseheads (the beer... not actual moose heads) in the fridge.

When I want to give a break to my taste buds, I'll go with that.

Mmm, not really. Except I do think PBR and Yuengling taste a lot better than BMC, even if they are also considered "BMC" beers. I prefer them over Bud.

But I generally like Belgian beers the most - I'm not a cheap date

And damn you for living within distribution range of Deschutes! Man I miss their Mirror Pond Pale Ale. Used to live in Bozeman, MT and had a lot of NW/W beers.

I like PBR too. I almost always have lite BMC in the fridge for guests that don't want homebrew. There aren't many, but there are a few.

I still like a Mickey's Big Mouth every now and then. That's some pure green awesomeness right there!

PBR owns the following:

Old Milwaukee
Colt 45
Old Style
Special Export
Schlitz Malt Liquour
Country Club Malt Liquour
St Ides
Carling Black Label
Piels and

I grew up on some of them. I haven't had a BMC since 1975, but I did like Stroh's after coming back to the States from Germany...for a while anyway...
