The Good Ol' Beers

The Good Ol' Beers

Ahhh... The Holy Trinity. Some beer snobs may take this as an insult, but these beers have stood the test of time and are household names for a reason. The enjoyment of a simple, almost timeless taste that is synonymous with summer, and good times says a lot about a person, and not in a bad way. Perfect for house parties, drinking games, and kabrewing - Stick to lighter, soft beers that are light on the wallet but heavy on the good times.

Lager & Blonde Ales

Lager & Blonde Ales

A casual beer drinker with a bit more specific tastes, we'd recommend some foreign lagers and blonde ales to your taste buds. These beers are lighter in color but full in flavor, and can range from smooth/exotically sweet to salty, or even robust and fruity. Blonde ales are becoming increasingly popular, and there's a lot of amazing brands to choose from. And if that,s not your thing, there's always underrated beers like Modelo to fall back on.

Microbrews & Craft Beers

Microbrews & Craft Beers

You are to craft beers what hipsters are to PBR! Drawn in like a magnet, you love a unique beer and appreciate a true microbrew . Moreover, you actually possess the taste buds to spot a genuine craft beer! Or we're guessing you do, anyway. We'd fully recommend you stick with this adventurous spirit, and immediately begin a Craft Tour. Dive deep into all of your local brews, and maybe even start brewing yourself!

IPAs

IPAs

We're guessing you have very specific tastes for beer, and that those specific tastes lend you to IPAs. These rich, sharp, and supremely hoppy beers have a unique and sometimes bitter aftertaste that immediately divides people into two categories - those who love it, and those who will never drink one again (on purpose). You fall into the former, and will know a good IPA when you taste it!

Dark Ale & Ambers

Dark Ale & Ambers

Rich, smooth, and earthy. Funny thing is, we're betting we could use those words not only to describe your taste in beers, but YOU as well! Very few things in life can approach the majesty of a well-crafted amber beer or dark ale, and we're recommending these finely-brewed beverages to you. They're easy to spot by their coloring, but looks can be deceiving. A true dark ale or amber beer will be thicker than a lager, and not overly-hoppy or light in taste.

Stout

Stout

We're willing to bet you've had a Guinness before, and we're also willing to bet that you f^#&!ng loved it. We're recommending dark stout beers to you, and the great news is that Guinness is just the tip of an incredibly thick iceberg. Branch out and try some heavy, malty stouts and you'll discover some smokey, nutty flavors you've been missing your whole life. These beers are for people like you, people who want to enjoy the beer in itself, and possess no ulterior motives.
