New, 570 comments

Tailgating is all about food and BEER, so lets discuss great local, regional and even those big national beers that we love to enjoy before the game and maybe in a post game celebration.

So, www.beeradvocate.com has put together some awesome beer ratings and groupings. Here are their groups and a few beers I like. What do you like to pair with your game day food of choice?

  • American Adjunct Lager - Bud Heavy or MGD/Schlitz for the old folks.
  • American Brown Ale - Nut Brown Ale from Goose Island
  • American Dark Wheat Ale - Ruddy Wheat from Weston Brewing Co.
  • American Double / Imperial IPA - Double Wide I.P.A. from Boulevard.
  • American Pale Lager - Yuengling & KC Pils.
  • American Porter - I'm not a big Porter fan
  • American Stout - Or stout really, so please edemucate me on these fine beers.
  • Belgian Strong Dark Ale - Brother Thelonious us just an awesome name here.
  • California Common / Steam Beer - Anchor is mighty fine.
  • Chile Beer - Gotta go with Flat Branch and Weston Brewing Co's Brew Labs #4.
  • Extra Special / Strong Bitter (ESB) - Redhook ESB is the only beer I've had on this list so I'm not very versed.
  • Light Lager - This is your good 'ol stand by. The Bud Lights of the world that will finish that buzz off after the good stuff has run out.
  • Smoked Beer - I bought some of the Norwegian Wood for my stepdad (who is norwegian), he calmly read the title and said "thats what your mother calls me". I hate him.
  • So, those are a few of my favorites or the categories in which I know nothing. Les us know what you look, what we should try and if theres anything I flat out missed.
