    Had a few of these tonight. Pretty good. The Scots make a damn good ale (shocking, I know).

    One of the better lights takes on the style. If you have it available, try Old Chub from Oskar Blues. Dangerously drinkable at 8%

    Try this instead... you'll never want another Belhaven.

    PS...never drink beer from a clear bottle.

    Sounds good. I'll give it a try. People around here drink Bud Light. I'd rather have a Yoo Hoo.

    Outstanding!

    Talk about a consistent brewery.

    Have you had the Oaked Bastard?

    On tap, fantastic. They do bourbon right. I'm still hunting for CBS though. Someday

    Oh boy, que the millennial beer snobs and their "fruit" beers.

    I drink way too much beer each evening to be paying $16 for a four pack of something called sweet baby Jesus peanut butter stout or whatever.

    I miss the old timers sitting in the neighborhood bars drinking Pabst, Schiltz, Red White and Blue.... or Natty Boh

    11 bucks for a 30 pack of National Light and two days later I'm buying another. So refreshing after a long hot day at work.

    Flames suit on... :chair:

    You drink to get wasted.

    I drink for taste, and to catch a buzz.

    Valid point... No I don't drink to get wasted.

    Call me crazy but I also enjoy the taste.

    I apologize for the comments actually. This is a big thing at the office I work at. I am frowned upon at work for drinking piss water by all the millennial beer snobs and "home brewers" at work. Seems your a lesser person if your not part of their "club".

    They are your typical bearded, skinny jeans, elf shoe wearing millennials and they are always busting my balls about "light" beer.

    Sorry guys, to each their own....

    Enjoy... :beer:

    I am a 53 year old dude who believes that you should drink what you like.

    I have been drinking different beers since I was 19, and had a buddy who brewed beer with his dad. I got hooked on stouts and porters pretty quickly.
    As for the hipsters, they are doing more for the brewing industry than some hack who tries to excite consumers with twisty neck bottles or cans that let you know the beer is cold enough to drink.

    at home I always go for the cheap stuff
    when out i'll get some of these oddball beers maybe half the time
    just to try them
    some are ok
    some taste like something other than beer


    PBR on tap is deadly however
    no idea what's in it
    but the next day
    not good

    I work in the beer industry, and I always find it hilarious how people feel like if you drink craft beer, you are a "hipster" and if you drink macro lights you are a "redneck". I see who drinks what on a daily basis, and the largest demographic starting to really love craft beer are older people..I would say 40-65 years old. They appreciate a quality, handmade, made in the USA product and are willing to pay a little more for it. Personally, I drink everything from Cantillon to Coors Light. It's whatever beer fits the moment for you and your wallet. I will say though, I find little appeal in drinking 15 light, rice based beers a night, pissing yourself until dehydrated and doing it all over again the next night. But once again, to each his own!

    The corporate beer conglomerates collude with big retailers to squeeze smaller breweries out of shelf space.

    Also, they are buying up small brewers, as they are the real growth source in the industry.
