OT- Super Important Questions Regarding Saturday

Submitted by AAK15 on August 28th, 2012 at 1:23 PM

So I am stuck in AA watching the game Saturday night. But, on the plus side, I have a keggerator. Now, this keggerator is empty so my question to you, MGoCommunity, is what type of beer should grace my keggerator for this monumental day?

Newcastle doesn't hold a candle to nearly every other brown ale I can think of.  And it's British.  Are you too good for Amurrican burr?

p.s. High Life Lite is the answer if the question is, "What beer can I drink literally all day long and not get sloppy drunk?"

I don't remember the name of the brewer, but the beer is called soft parade, a mellow way to start the day, then i would transition to Cowcatchers Red Ale ( Mt.Pleasant Brewing Company) Similar to killians and bass, a touch smoother finish, and finally to celebrate a wolverine victory, i would suggest Coal stoker Blackberry ( Mt.pleasant brewing company) think guiness and chambord for flavor context. Best of all all 3 are available at Meijer.

Honestly if you're planning on putting down a keg in an afternoon and evening of football, go for something light and with a slightly lower than average alcohol content.  Give yourself a chance of remaining upright and functional until the PAC12 games wrap up.  Pilsner Urquell is my favorite for marathon drinking.  Have some heavier beer and/or liquor on hand if desired, but keep the keg something easy to push your way through.  

Plus that way the leftover booze will be easy to kill off with light evening drinking during the week.  I tend to get PBR kegs these days, good price point, tastes pretty good, and you can just blow through it without turning yourself in a puking mess.  

For anyone buying cans, Trader Joes also now has their own lager at 5% ABV and 58 cents per can.  It's shockingly good and perfect for when you need a cooler full of cans for your party.

Hoegaarden wouldn't be a bad choice, if possible. It is 4.9% APV, as I recall, which isn't terribly high. If you don't mind unfiltered beers or beers with a citrus background similar to Blue Moon, this is a pretty good selection.

Too OT for opening week.  However, I can't resist and will contribute anyways.  Oberon.  Get it while the gettings good, seeing as it'll only be available for maybe a few more weeks.
