    Ive had a friend that is trying to rid me of the "P*** Water, that you call beer" (That's what he calls it) that I have been drinking, which was mainly Miller Light, ect.... I am a huge fan of Lagers. He has got me into Stella Artois, Pulaner, and Steinlager. Any other suggestions? Thanks

    I'm not a huge fan of beer, but when I do drink a few, it's usually either Yuengling Lager, Dundee's Honey Brown Lager, or Pete's Wicked Strawberry Blonde Lager. Not sure this will help you much though, as far as I know they're mostly only available on the east coast.

    Brooklyn is one of the better widely-available lagers...

    This is definitely recomended as a replacement daily drinker for Bud.

    Delicious!

    It is really hard to find out here though. I hear they have a black and tan that is to die for.

    My cousin is a distributer that keeps my outside refer full of several brands that he sells.

    I like the varity and am all set for the superbowl tomorrow...

    Budweiser - Landshark - Widmeir - etc. It all tastes good when it's free.

    I would love to find one of the .45 ones made for the U.S. trials.

    I'm not as big a fan of lagers, but some that i DO enjoy-

    Doppelbocks: Ayinger Celebrator, Paulaner Salvator, Spaten Optimator (lol Abita Andygator). They're just damned tasty.

    I similarly like Bocks and Eisbocks (like Kulmbacher Eisbock)

    I'd try some Czech pilseners as well: Czechvar (was Budweiser Budvar before some lawsuit) is a good example and pretty widely available.

    I could help you out better with ales. Maybe I should branch out some in lager territory myself.

    I bought a 6-pack of black and tan last summer when I turned 21, it was the best beer I've ever had, unfortunately the two 6-packs I bought after that weren't anywhere near as good, idk if the first one was an unusually good batch or if the last two were bad batches, but I just drink their lager now. I just found out that they're releasing the yuengling bock in bottles for a few months only, going to see if I can find a pack for next weekend, supposedly it tastes like a maltier lager.

    I am rather fond of Leinenkugels products. They are distributed by Miller I believe.
