42 Reasons Not to Order Coors Light


Or Budweiser or Miller Lite. Not that those beers don’t have their purpose, time and place. We like em fine. But there’s a world of other tastes to experience and if beer is your thing, why not taste as many as you can. Here are 42 to get you started. Add your personal favorites in the comments.

    if you’re going to try a Chimay, go for red cap. the white cap tastes like monk feet.

    My personal favorite is Boulevard Unfiltered Wheat Beer. It’s a regional brew made in KC. Love most of what they make, wheat beer hits the spot for me though.

    90min for DFH is one of the best beers period (though love 120 min more). Fat tire is amazing as well. Quite a few great ones on here.

    You can only get it in Wisconsin, should you be traveling through try New Glarus’s Spotted Cow, or anything from Potosi Brewery where the National Beer Museum is.

    Fat Tire is the most overrated beer in the history of mankind. Stop telling me about it’s great chocolate undertones. Awful. Dale’s Pale Ale rules, especially after a little smoke. I don’t know why PBR taste so good after a day on the slopes and tastes just so and so in a bar.

  27. daveloper80

    September 18, 2012 at 8:55 am

    Peroni? seriously? Pabst?

    Dale’s and Ten Fidy are great, they also make a beer called Old Chub that is stellar. I would also add Fred Red Ale from Blue and Grey

       @K Dubya Gubna is fantastic.  And although Im happy to sell a ton of it at my store, I was very disappointed with the Dales.

    And despite their entertaining campaign, Red Stripe blows.

  34. JasonFromCT

    September 18, 2012 at 10:43 am

    Stella tastes like old cigarettes.  It’s the quintessential douche-bag beer.  The same guy orders that, orders Glenfiddich.

    September 18, 2012 at 11:56 am

    Yuengling is good but overrated. You can’t buy it here in new england so it’s nice when you are somewhere that does sell it but I have a feeling I wouldn’t buy it often if I could get it where I live. for me Fullers London Pride on draught or in a Nitro can are the best with Old Speckled Hen a close second in the same way (it’s gross in a bottle)

    • Homer JG

      September 24, 2012 at 10:19 am

       I was VERY lucky.  Actually had it in Philadelphia at a bar called Eulogy if youve ever heard of it.  Had one keg that RR had sent them.  Right place right time! Want to say 9 bucks for 6 ozs? Great beer though

      • Yuuuck

        September 19, 2012 at 11:28 pm

         @MrWufMet Outside of California you can’t touch it anywhere besides the Philadelphia area and Denver (I think there’s a wholesaler there for it there too).  Here in the greater Philadelphia (aka Beer Meca) Origlio Beverage is the only wholesaler on the east coast to have the rights to distribute any of their products.  Your can thank Tom Peters of Monks Cafe for getting it here.   I’m a huge fan of that little brewery, world class stuff.  If any of you are into sour’s check out their Supplication or Consecration – that is if you can find it.  If ya can’t find it, come to my store and I’ll take care of ya.
