Partaking in a tall cold mug (or pint) of beer is as old as human history itself. For many men, it may almost seem like our desire to consume mass amounts of this hops filled barley goodness is very much ingrained in our very DNA. However, the sheer number of available brews on the market can leave one in a tailspin as to trying to decide which one to drink. While we haven’t sampled all that the market has to offer, here are a few that the crew of Webster Style Magazine recommends.
Dubbed “The Champagne of Beers” amazingly not for its quality or great taste, but for its level of carbonation. Miller High Life actually shares the same formula as Miller Genuine Draft, just with more carbonation to give your taste buds that fizzy feeling like champagne. Miller High Life has been around since 1903 and is Miller’s oldest continuing brand. It maybe on the cheaper end of the spectrum as far as the price is concerned, but its crisp refreshing taste can satisfy the pallet of the most sophisticated of any beer snob.
Blue Moon is a Belgium style witbier (wheat beer) that is orange-amber in color with a cloudy appearance. It is spiced with coriander and orange peel in addition to the hops found in most beers. Blue Moon has a very pronounced orange flavor with a slightly sweet flavor. Its smooth taste is due to its brew composition which includes malted barley, white wheat, and oats.
The brand name of Killian’s Irish Red has changed hands over the years, but despite who owns the name, the beer is still good. Killian’s is an amber lager that gets its color and taste from a special caramel malted barley that is roasted at a high temperature longer and more slowly than most malts. This process gives the lager a rich bold flavor that isn’t as overpowering as many beers in its class.
