Yuengling's pretty okay. Other than that I'll stick to Sam Adams (all of their brews have their own good points). American beer is usually a letdown after you develop a taste for the imports.

I'm from Pennsylvania. Yuengling is pretty much the half-decent college kid beer. Like, all right let's splurge for something one step above Natural Light and PBR... I can't understand people thinking of Yuengling as a seriously good beer. I will never fathom it. I went to a bar in Brooklyn and everyone was drinking Yuengling and it was so odd...so very odd...especially given how good the Brooklyn stuff is.

Labatt is Canadian Budweiser.  When I lived in Toronto I never drank that shit.

I think I pretty much only drank Red Stripe at bars there.  Red Stripe... mmmm.


I live on the other side of the world (literally) so I am not an expert of Canadian beers, but the few Labatt brand beers I have tried have been streaks ahead of the old Bud's I have tried (kinda reminds me of the Mexican Dos Equus joke about it takes two horse to make...), they were at least a small step above the Bud range.

I am more of an ale and bitters person, so it is good to see Labatt does Bass Pale Ale as one if its runs.

Labatt's IPA is not so good - Keith's is much better.

For an interesting craft brew try Beau's Lagered Ale.  Brewed just down the Highway in Van Kleek Hill, it is a decent brew - organic for those who care.  It comes in a very nice 750 ml stoneware bottle with a pop top similar to those found on Grolsch bottles.  This tyoe of stopper lets you pour out a glass, replace the stopper, put the beer back in the fridge and get another glass in a couple of hours with no loss of carbonation (tested that out myself last night). 

Try it, you know you want to.
