Hey at least its beer. The reason I drink Coors is because it taste's good and secondly I drink my beers fast, Coors is smooth and I never get a hangover.

I live 15 miles from Gluek Brewing Company. I hope I never have to drink it though. EW

Northern Cal has Anchor Steam or Sierra Nevada.
Texas has Shiner or Lone Star.
PA has Rolling Rock.
Upstate NY has Genesee.
MA has Sam Adams.
WI has Leinenkugel.
RI has Narragansett.

Southern Cal has no local brew that is an icon for the area like what I listed above. There's some specialty micro brews like Carl Strauss, but no large scale local name that is widely consumed or generally known. We go to places like Trader Joe's and buy stuff from somewhere else. There's no shortage of choices either. Anyone ever try "Jumping Cow" brewed in New Ulm, MN? That's a goodie. Kind of like a Sam Adams or Anchor Steam.



Most people here are from somewhere else, and often they order something that reminds them of home.

I have NO idea. I don't drink beer. Never really cared for the taste. I think the bars here predominantly sell Bud.

Just try a beer which has 'red' in its name. Sip slowly.

Beer is an ancient beverage and may be older than wine. Ancient Egyptians drank it and then went and built the pyramids!

So I was wondering, what kind of beer is popular where your from?

In MN for the early 20's crowd its Michcelob Golden Draft light
Older crowd its Busch or Budweiser
And Coors light is starting to be a real popular choice (my choice)
YUCK! I don't like any of those, yet I do occasionally drink Budweiser and Mich Golden Draft isn't available in the south(i remember it when i lived up north). In my area microbrews are nearly as popular as the mainstream macros. Porters and stouts seem very popular amongst people here, although I am partial to pale ales.

Life's too short to be drinking mediocre beer (or wine).

There are so many to choose from... one must experience the flavors.
