I love light beers because they are easy on the old stomach especially if you are eating at the same time. I know if I am drinking Guinness I am for sure not eating because it is too filling. To each his own and lets enjoy all beers. Whether watery **** or a pint of the black stuff (Guinness). Who has had a Pearl lately?
HE and no he is Canadian, though I do have family in and around Buffalo.

I agree with you though. Non light beers are way too filling

Most Australian and Canadian beers are terrible. They are imitation pilsners, just like Bud and Miller. They are just local versions of American lagers. For some reason though, probably because they are "foreign" people think they are better. All they really are is "different."

Same story with most Mexican and Asian beers. All nearly flavorless light pilsner style beers.

Germany, Belgium, and England on the other hand have a uniformly more flavorful and interesting product.

There are many fantastic American beers. They just aren't made by the Big 3.

I like all Shiner beers. Oktoberfest should be on shelves as we speak. I don't care for Blue Moon though. Maybe I got a bad one, but it was super bitter and I haven't had another one since. Never had that Oatmeal Stout. Is it equivalent to a Guinness? My HEB used to be really good about carrying a variety of beers, but now it is a lame selection. Usually go to Sun Harvest when I am feeling frisky and want to blow $12 for a six pack!

I like the way this person thinks.

I'm not a beer snob if its free. If I'm paying though I'll buy Shiner Bock.

We've got some Rahr Oktberfest in the fridge right now. My husband likes their beers as well as a number of other kinds people have posted. I like most of what Rahr puts out, but one of theirs is pretty hoppy. I don't recall which one though. I like Real Ale too, and we had some Shiner black not too long ago that was really good.

The only mainstream beer we'll drink is Sam Adams or at the least, Coors. No bud here, but when I'm at my sisters house, I'll drink Miller because my brother in law works for them and always has it at his house. Sometimes he'll bring us imports that they carry and that's always fun
