Bud select is alright. But I never seen it until I went to st.louis.

PC red is probably the best store brand beer. Which is not saying much.

Same here, I still like a dark ale, but I just find they're too much after more than a couple: I'm either full or my taste buds are overloaded. I always seem to ending up switching to something lighter on the palate after a while. Though, I do like Mcauslan's Oatmeal stout

Keith's original IPA is my staple (Moosehead is what we took to parties in the Martimes so no one would steal your beer) Heinken is good but has a after-taste that kinda builds up after a while

Loving Leffe on a hot day as well as Big Rock's Grasshopper wheat.

And, of course, PBR. For the only reason that it tastes the same warm as cold, the perfect, cheap volume camping beer.

For those in Calgary, I had lunch at the District Tavern today (11th ave SW) and they have a decent beer menu, and brew about 5 of their own downstairs.

Beer menu: Our Beers : Design District Urban Tavern

Unfortunately it's one of those places that serves $15 burgers, yes your fries are included but fuck $15?!?

The positive is there's a brewery downstairs. The Beer | Brew Brothers You can try the beer in the restaurant, and then take some home with you if you like it. I had some of the IPA and my GF had the Hairy Eyeball wheat ale. The IPA was decent. I'd give it a 6.5/10, much better than any of the cheap IPAs, better than some of the fancy pants IPAs I've been drinking recently. The wheat ale was great! It's had some mediocre reviews online, but the last I saw was from 2008, so maybe they've changed the recipe since then? It was a real nice refreshing session beer.

The off sales are in growler format (1.83L or about 5 1/3rd bottles), for $15, and $10 if you come back to refill it. So under $2 a bottle for beer that tastes over that price point for me.

I'm going to have to get my notes out, because I've probably tried about 20 IPAs in the last couple months. It's one of those addictive things, I've got to try them everywhere I go!

Of course the IPA craze seems to be subsiding, but the good side is that almost every microbrewery, brewpub, and major brewery has SOMETHING resembling an actual IPA available.

I've had a few nasty ones, a few amazing ones, and tons of good IPAs lately.

I always wondered why American's drink Budweiser. Rice beer just seems so un-American!
