St. Pauli Girl Special Dark

Dark Lager • Germany
We don’t know if someone treated her badly or what, but the darker St. Pauli ended up a little complex and a little naughtier than her blonde sibling. And we like it. Eminently drinkable.

Samuel Adams Boston Lager
Lager • Boston
A go-to lager for hot wings. Mild enough to quell the fire yet hoppy enough to add nuance to the party in your mouth.

Brooklyn Lager
Lager • Brooklyn
Much like the New York City borough where it’s born, this lager is rife with racial tension and has overcrowded schools. And by that we mean it’s loaded with malty, hoppy, slightly spicy flavor.

Newcastle
Brown Ale • U.K.
Evoking nutty flavors, this brew is surprisingly light. Perfect for those happy hour pub burger binges.

Samuel Smith’s Old Brewery Pale Ale
English Pale Ale • U.K.
We say “cheerio” to this superdrinkable brew with the peaty hints of deliciousness. Stick another case in the boot, gov’ner!

Michelob Ultra Amber Light
Lager • St. Louis
Light with a rye-toast flavor. Very swiggable.

Bass Pale Ale
Pale Ale • U.K.
Like an old friend, this brew never fails to deliver rich, hoppy flavor. Also like an old friend, it occasionally tries to bang your girlfriend. Not cool, Bass Pale Ale!

Dos Equis Ambar
Dark Lager • Mexico
This easy, smoky stuff has more guts than most big American beers.

Yuengling Traditional Lager
Pale Lager • Pottsville, Pennsylvania
Frothier than an Amish beard. Its complex flavor has hints of caramel.

Michelob Pale Ale
Pale Ale • St. Louis
A mildly bitter, way drinkable brew.

Great Lakes Eliot Ness
Vienna • Cleveland
This smooth and sexy amber is pretty friggin’ good for an uptight G-man.

Budweiser American Ale
Amber Ale • St. Louis
We adore its malty taste and love the way it never gets mad at us for coming home late.
