Yeah, Sam Adams makes a 12 pack of 6 different beers. I always get it around Christmas because its a good deal. They have a stout (similar to Guinness but not as thick) and some seasonal brews which are good. That'd be a good start. Personally, I like Guinness because I can drink more of it then Miller Lite or whatever American beer. The carbonation in the American beers is so high its almost an annoyance, this also make the brews like Guinness and Smithwicks more smooth!

I could survive quite happily on Guinness and bacon for the rest of my life. Granted, it would probably be a relatively short life, but what a way to go, huh?

I would reccomend New Castle, but not freezing cold. Let it warm just a little out of the cooler so that you can pick up the caramel malt. That is my favorite mass produced beer. Negro Modelo or Red Strip is weaker if that's what you mean by starter. If you wanna go in all the way to a good beer, then Anchor Porter or Celebrator is really good. I would also reccomend the Rouge IPA. Taste like pure hop flowers. good luck on this. My friends call New Castle Brown Ale the "Cocola" of beers. It is good.

newcastles are great
any beer that you have to pop the top rather than twisting it off seems to be better. beer is like coffiee (sp) you get an aquired taste for it. cheap domestic beer leaves my head splitting the next day. good beer is well worth the higher price.
Heiniken
leinenkugel (my new favorite) made in wisconson
red stripe
st pauly girl
serria nevada
new castle

small list of my favorites, exuse my poor spelling

ohh and I had a blue moon variety pack last night and it was all good
also I forgot sam adams is way cool too
leinenkugel= classic amber and sunset wheat are my new favorites

my ol lady was an advid bud light drinker till she tried some of my dank beers as I call them and now she wont drink anything else.

bud smokers know what I am talking about
mex swag= cheap low taste but does the job. commercial
kind bud= expensive but taste and body(lol) if you can afford it, its way better

same way with good beer, coffiee, toilet paper, tools, and parts
you get what you pay for

im a fan of hornsbies or woodchuck.. woodchuck mainly especially the new variety 12 pack comes with oak aged instead of pear..

also found a new beer called blueberry lager.. its 8% and is a pretty dark beer but tastes damn near like blueberry cobbler..

the first 2 are applecider beer and are good to drink and relax.. especially if you said you like mixed drinks.. they are a tad bit stronger than your normal bud light and beers of that sort

Been drinking beer for over 40 years. Due to the economy I buy 30 packs of Coors Extra Gold for $17.11 as my every day, and I mean every day, beer. For company I go Belguim. Those monks know how to brew.

Well I'm not a Beer Drinker. I tried in college. and failed miserably. so went back to the ol rum and Vodka.

Recently I've been pondering trying some different beers...since everything I've tried was one of the mass produced "light" beers.

now to decided if I want to go buy a few 6 packs, or goto a bar. (likely end up w/ 6 packs as it seems bars only have Bud, coors, etc on tap.)

All honesty, beer tastes like piss water. No matter the name brand, style, etc. they all have one thing in common....see the color? Yep, that's what it tastes like.

On the flip side, beer is like (insert explicitive here for the female birth canal) in that you eventually acquire a taste for it. It still tastes like piss water, but you come to sort of 'enjoy' the taste, per se.

My personal favorite is Miller High Life.

pick up a 22oz can of Steel Reserve for 99 cents, or a PBR. great starter beers. after that, even engine oil would go down like water.

if you stick with the Steel, you'll get HAMMERED for like 7 bucks lol!

LOL We have a friend out of state who drinks SR... Hubby thought it must be some fancy exotic beer, till we ran across it at Wally's one day. Picked up a 12 pack, still thinking this must be good if CJ drinks it.... Iced some down and tried them.... well, I tasted, he drank... Yuck.. But later he decided it was ok, so he started drinking them.. Had a few in a fairly short period of time and he was lit... He doesn't drink much at all anymore. This went on for about 3 days, then he reads the label and tells me it's no wonder he was lit after 3..

I grew up drinkin' PBR.. Maybe that explains my love of beer now

lmao thats funny. the Steel is like drinking transmission fluid mixed with rubbing alcohol. but holy cow it's powerful lol! i drank that stuff all through college since it was so cheap. i'm known to always have a double-deuce of it hidden in the back of the fridge for a bad day lol!

PBR isn't bad if i put salt in it. if i drink alot of it though i'll spend the next day in the bathroom. it's like eating a roll of exlax.

Dark beer is yummy.... But for just a mommies little helper, Coors original banquet beer fills the bill nicely I go through just enough to make my local grocer keep it on hand for me... In fact I'm enjoying my last one of the night now.. And I'm bored, can you tell?

Yuengling is a must. I am sure you can get it in Alabama. That is all I drank when I was in Montgomery for 6 weeks. Its a shame you can only get it east of the Mississippi.

wow the local grocery store near my house has a ton of off brand bears. I can't begin to list them all, but I noticed a label or 2 that I have seen in this thread.

I went ahead and picked up some Sam Adams Light for this weekend.

GOOD choice
sam adams light won in the non light beer catagory, pretty good to beat out the non light beers.
