After three years of declining sales, shipments of domestically sold beer are up by more than 1% in the United States this year. Sales of light beer and specialty beer, such as Budweiser Light Platinum, Shock Top, and Blue Moon, have been the driving force in the resurgence of U.S. breweries.
While sales of specialty, craft, and small-market beers have improved dramatically, many of the traditional, full-calorie beers that were once the staples of most breweries have fallen behind. In the five years ending in 2011, sales of Budweiser, which was once the top-selling beer in the country for years, have fallen by 7 million barrels. Sales of Michelob are down more than 70%.

Dogfish Head 90-minute IPA is what does it for me when I’m drinking IPAs. And if you ever get a chance to try Foothills Brewing’s Seeing Double IPA on tap, it’s well worth it.
I went to a local asting near me in NYC at Brooklyn Brewery and was hooked.
It was awesome - they took an old factory and converted it into a brewery near the docks and its real good.
Hey, I grew up in Detroit and don’t know any better and am too old to learn now. We did used to get Canadian beer in GIQ bottles which was long on volume but short on price and quality.
Delirium Tremens. A great Belgian beer. I also partake of Porters, Amber Ales, and Wheat beers.
I have some brands I enjoy more than others but I try to mix it up to find and enjoy a range of tastes.
Even though it's owned by a Mexican brewery.
Not that there's anything wrong with that...
"F--K THAT S--T!!! PABST BLUE RIBBON!"
Lucky you; they are one of my favorites. Just drank a 6 pack of Hop Devil last night. One of the best beers on the market. Their Headwaters Pale Ale and Pilsner are great beers too. I live in upstate NY, and Victory sells pretty well around here.
don’t drink anymore, but, my choice was Red Stripe, or Boulevard (Kansas City) Honey Wheat...
I loves me some Shiner Bock, best thing about living in Texas.
Coldcock is the one you never see coming
IPA ain’t beer. Lagers are what we talk about, and the best, in no particular order, are
I don't think they make it anymore.
I like this suds even though it reminds me a lot of Mooch-elle the Royal Wookie!
The Mexican beers most all have German heritage by German immigrants back in the 1800’s.
Shiner Bock is unbeatable in longneck, but the best on draft. ‘Specially with ribs at the Country Tavern.
Another German heritage beer very few may have heard of that is very good is Kuntsmann (yeah what a name!) Torobayo from Southern Chile. Ever get a chance try it. Wish could buy it up here.
If I had ever tasted Moose pee I figured that would be the taste.
That was and is my father — thrifty.
The can looks like a joke but I can remember seeing generic beer like that in supermarkets back in the day.
Reminds me of the Breakfast of Champions at our dorm: Wheaties and Buckhorn!
