Actually, Busch was an early favorite of mine before I got into the craft brews. Had to travel to CT to get it as it wasn't distributed in NY at the time. I also like Ballantine IPA and Lord Chesterfield Ale which are not craft brews but old style beers with lots of flavor. Nothing wrong with drinking any kind of beer just so long as you enjoy it.

Heineken is a solid choice, but one that is really fine and brings back memories is McSorley's Ale...

http://www.mcsorleysnewyork.com/

45 years ago it was not so much of a tourist trap and you get "Two Light" for 50 cents.
They never sold "beer"! When I first visited, you could have a bottle of India Pale Ale or you swim in the "House Ale", Light or Dark, for a song...Winter months? I t was a treat to walk in from the street to sit next to the BIG OLD COAL STOVE...
We used to marvel at how many mugs the waiter "Ritchie" could carry in one hand. It was around seven or so...On a busy night it was not unusual to order four or six ales at one time (for one's self)

McSorley's is special...

McSorley's is brewed right here in NEPA...I keep a few bottles of light & dark in the frig....brewed by Lion Inc, Wilkes Barre PA....(also home to the former Old Fell House where Jesse Fell first burned anthracite in 1808)....
I still visit McSorley's a few times a year....and even though it's become a college hang out it's still fun to throw down a few in that time honored place.....
Right now I have Stegmaier Oktoberfest on tap (a classic Oktoberfest/Marzen beer from Lion Brewery).......I look forward to Sept/Oct every year just to tap this brew....it comes in 1/6th barrels and I usually get 2 or 3 a season.....it's special

Ah, my favorite bar in the world. I used to go there years ago, in the afternoon, before bluegrass shows at the Bottom Line. Around two in the afternoon, on a weekday, you could hear the clock ticking, it was so quiet.

Hmmm. Beer? Yup, I like it.
All time favorite..GROLSCH.Especially good with a big prime rib dinner and out of this world on tap (hard to find). I find Heineken too heavy to have more than one.
Next, Dortmunder,again excellent on tap and with dinner.
Fosters Lager, very good with blue cheese and crackers or french bread and crackers or even PLAIN.
For dark beer, it's Munchener. A little heavy so only one or two.
I drink the above WHEN I CAN AFFORD to.
Killians and Blue Moon make the "favorites" list also.
FOR EVERY DAY BEER it's PBR or MGD. I also like Molsons or Ballantine xxx ale. Ballantine beer was terrible as was Krueger,Schaeffers and a host of others. The best thing about Schaeffer or Rheingold was their advertising jingles.
Schoenling "Little Kings Ale" is very good, but hard to find, and not that expensive,although it comes in 7 oz bottles.
A night out in a bar might find me drinking Yuengling on tap. I like good beer, from inexpensive to expensive.

What was Rheingold's? I can remember Schaefer's.
Two other horrible ones were Genny regular beer and Utica Club. The Utica club television commercials were great though. They features a cast of talking steins with Schultz and Dooley as the main characters
The original Stegmeir was bad too. That was the only cheap beer I couldn't give away although Old Milwaukee was a close second. Even my cheap beer loving friends didn't like that one.

It all depends on what im going to be doing. If im working i prefer drinking some Hamms. This stuff tastes so bad that while drinking it you might actually get some work done. Now when it comes to the evening and feelin good i prefer some Alaskan IPA. It might be a bit tough to get down your guys way but its the best IPA ive gulped so far. And thats including dogfishhead and a lot of those eastern brewers. Eastern IPA just taste tart or dirty. Alaskan IPA is crisp and to the point. For the money it might be worth it.
