    If it ain't Bud it ain't beer...................unless it's Mexican beer [​IMG].  After the first 12 pack does it even matter?????  How many can you drink in the time it takes to smoke a brisket or a butt????
  4. Used to be Buffalo Gold, the first micro brew I ever tried, some 23 years ago.  Unfortunately, Coors apparently bought them out sometime in the last 5 years and ruined it, just like they do with all of their beers.  This summer I'll be looking for a replacement.  Fat Tire is a bit heavy for me in the heat of summer.  Breckenridge Brewery makes a summer seasonal called Summerbright, but I doubt that I'll be able to find it out here in farm country.  I may have to make the 125 mile run to Denver and bring home a couple of cases, if I can find that much.  I know that the liquor store that I shopped at for 30 years can probably get it for me if I put in an order.

  5. I like bourbon, my favorite being Basil Hayden, and my favorite beer is Stella Artois.

    Shock Top Raspberry Wheat if I'm in the beer mood, but I usually prefer Captain & Coke..:sausage:
  9. I'll be going to Denver several times during the summer to play golf, so I make them beer runs too. [​IMG]
  10. If I'm paying, Keystone Light.  If someone else is paying, whatever they bring.

    I stopped being a beer snob about the time I got back from Iraq.  After being in the Navy for 26 years and 11 deployments you tend to just appreciate beer...period.

    When I have it - Boulevard Wheat. When I don't? Whatever's around. As long as it's not Bud Light or Busch anything - I'm good!

    I generally sip the hard stuff neat or on the rocks when I drink, preferring scotch, anejo, bourbon, and vodka in that order.  I also have access to great free red wine that keeps our cork caddy growing.    

    We do keep beers on hand when smoking pulled pork/beef, burgers, chicken, ribs, and steaks   My wife and I are Blue Moon fans, with an orange quarter squeezed in it.  Once it gets warm their Summer Honey Wheat with an orange quarter is our favorite, served in a frosty thick glass mug pulled out of the freezer.  Mmmmm, adult soda pop.  BM retired our favorite in 2013 and replaced it with some Agave crap beer.  I sent them an e-mail and told them we switched to Leinenkugel's Orange Shandy.  Evidently others did too because they brought back the Summer Honey Wheat in 2014 and made everything right again in our beer world.

    Dark beer for me.  Killians,Moose Druel, or Blue Moon beers.  Bud Light is good also at times.  Reinhard

    My favorite is whatever is in your cooler when I come to visit.

    Naturally I will bring a bottle of wine for your prettier half!

    Good luck and good smoking.

    After spending most of my life in Wisconsin, I developed an appreciation for Leinenkugel's beers. Summer time fave is their Summer Shandy, winter is their Sunset wheat and some of their other seasonal brews. Around the holiday season though, Troegs Mad Elf hits the spot, but at $55 a case, you drink it real slow.
  18. Depends on the weather. I like something light and refreshing one a hot day (Bud, Coors) but other times I like things like Newcastle. Shocktop is really good too.
