What Beer Do You Drink?

Beer Tasting

Interestingly, not much these days. When I do, it is usually Yuengling, the oldest continuously operating brewery in the United States. I believe I first drank Yuengling back in college, more than 20 years ago. It was one of the Pennsylvania beers I learned to enjoy (Rolling Rock, Mickey’s Big Mouth, Stroh’s, etc.). I liked it, but did not continue with it after I was graduated. Many years later, I met my wife. Her parents do a lot of camping with a bunch of other couples. They all know each other through Boy Scouts. They formed the Yuengling Canoe Team (YCT) and even had Yuengling sponsor them. I think that just means the company bought the beer. My in-laws do know how to camp!

My favorite mass-produced beer, however, is Pilsner Urquell. This Czech beer often is considered the finest beer bottled. Its taste is wonderful, but being a pilsner means it is not as heavy as a lager, which is appealing to me.

I have found Pilsner Urquell on draught in only three places in my life:

  1. some bar in Georgetown that my friend Steve and I ducked into many years ago
  2. the Blue Claw restaurant
  3. Winfield’s

There are other beers I enjoy: Flying Fish, Blue Collar (which apparently is now defunct), St. Pauli Girl. Now that I am middle-aged, a husband, and a father, my beer drinking is relegated to events (weddings, funerals, etc.).

  1. The beer I drink these days is from Glasstown Brewery. My favorite is the Stout With No Name. When that is out, the Belgian Blonde, Nightcap is my go-to.

    The best beer I have consumed there, however, is the double bourbon brown. They haven’t made that in several years. The normal bourbon brown is fine, but not as nice as the double. 😉
