If you like Miller lite, I'll be sure to stay away from Lobo Lito

However, lately I've been trying new beers and I've come to realize that I like the dark beers. I rarely buy a light beer now. I'm still taste tasting but I really like the Miller Fortune and Samuel Adams Octoberfest (which isn't available all year. I'm following this thread looking for some good suggestions on dark beers/lagers

Sam Adams Boston Lager and Sam Adams Octoberfest for me. I don't know if you would call Sam Adams a microbrew (maybe craft brew)?

Saw last week that craft beers are really cutting into the Budweiser market. Budweiser was going to drop the Clydesdale horses from their advertising and try to appeal to a different market.

They were going to replace the Clydesdales with Jay Z

They were going to replace the Clydesdales with Jay Z

Budweiser is retiring its iconic holiday Clydesdale horse commercials amid declining sales and intense competition from craft beers, according to a report published on Sunday in The Wall Street Journal.

The move comes as part of Budweiser's broader efforts to convince 21-to-27-year-olds that its beer is still relevant. The brand plans to tap into millennials' vampire obsession (red "Bloodweiser" has appeared at selected bars), make YouTube-friendly commercials and sponsor music festivals and shows, such as the Made In America Festival with Jay-Z.

I am a craft brew snob...I see this thread turning into a long running (years long) one. I do not drink near as much as I use to but I am all the time buying more.

GREAT thread idea!

Mocha stout sounds goooood! I could easily become a craft beer snob. Shiner Bock is my go to beer but I like anything malty and hoppy. I really like Shiner Cosmos and Samuel Adams. For two weeks in a row in October I bought a case of the Sierra Fall Pack. Each of those four types of beer were very good. Leinenkugel (?) creamy dark is by far the best dark beer I have ever had but my local HEB has not had in for a year. I have just finished a 6 pack of Fat Tire. It was Ok but a little lite for me. I have been trying the Fall and Octoberfest beers lately. There are so many craft beers out there to try but I am nowhere near any decent distributor. I wonder if I could get a keg of Kosmos in Shiner?

I get it at Red Robin and Tierny' s. Cobra has some decent ones, haven't been to the brewery lately to see what new ones they have. Always liked the Angry leprechaun.
