I've usually been a strictly hard liquor guy at parties and such, but I'd like to get into beer more to ease into the drunken state at parties. So far all I've tasted are the party common beers (Bud, bud light, coors light, miller lite, etc.) and those all tasted like nasty piss water. I've also had Blue Moon, though that tasted a little too doughy for me.

So what does UG recommend me to try? I'm considering getting some Newcastle Brown Ale for an upcoming party.

Anything in a can and cold. In Canada and the US if you're looking for a good tasting beer, you'll need to buy something imported. Just get bud tall cans and refridgerate them til they're super cold, then drink them. It's so much easier to drink when it's cold.

I haven't, though I've been interested in it.

BTW, I should also mention that I live in Kentucky in the United States.

Are there any good ciders made in the US?

EDIT.
okay...if you read the post, I already tried all of the cheap **** beer. Please don't recommend that.

They tasted like nasty piss water because they are nasty piss water.

Peruse the Ale section and choose stuff with the weirdest names.

P.S. dark ales ftw.

The only cider I've found in the U.S. is Strongbow. It's pretty good but it's no Magners.

If you're looking for good beer I suggest Yuengling or Heinekin. Anything not brewed in the U.S. is good. Well except for Corona....

I like to go for bottled beer, that's cold.

Some of my favorites are Stella Artois, Heineken, Steinlarger and Macs.
Maybe some of those are just more popular in New Zealand... but they're all bloody marvelous!

Guiness is my fav.

Try Fat Tire (amber ale). You might like this one. There are many types of beers such as porters, ales, wheat, pilsners etc.. You sound like you are more of a person of these types rather than a domestic beer type. Try experimenting, you'll find some great tasting beers.

Go to a pub, like an English style pub, they typically have so many different beers, and try them all over time.

Coors Lite

Or, if it's available in your area: Alaskan Amber. <- Hands down, the best beer I've tasted thus far.

Woodchuck is made in the US and you can get strongbow on import, try Whole Foods, or a bigger liquor store.

Also since you live fairly close to Louisville you should be able to get BBC beer, all of their stuff is good (except IMO the Pale Ale)

Corona or Heineken are pretty good "first beers."

A lot of people I know like ciders and that might be a good bridge between things.

This bar I go to has this sampler of three beers with a shot of espresso vodka, I don't remember the beers, I think one was Dragon's Milk, and they all taste so might fine, and get you really ****ed up.

Stella Artois for a lager. Or maybe San Miguel. If you can get cider over there, something a bit more upmarket would be Bulmers or Magners, however there is Strongbow if you fancy sitting in a field and getting wasted. Ah, good times.
#39
Not shure what's available in the US, but if you're looking for lager that doesn't taste like toilet water from a chemical factory (Bud, I'm looking directly at you) have a look for Leffe, Hoegarten, Staropamen, Stella Artois, pretty much any European lager, as long as it's not from the UK, people here seem to think Carling is meant for human consumption, French beer isn't much better than British either, in my oppinion.

If you're looking for actual beer try Brains SA Gold, may be biased because I'm Welsh but it's an awesome normal strength beer. Guiness is great if you like stout, there are other ones, but the one's I've tried have been from small brewaries so I doubt you'd be able to find them. I'm not a fan of Newcastle Brown, however a lot of people like it so it's worth a try.

As for cider Strongbow is ok, bit generic but shouldn't be hard to find, Blackthorn is very, very dry if that's what you're into and the less said about white cider the better. If you can though try and find Westones or Brothers, dunno how much luck you will have though, their not always easy to find in the UK.

Over the summer I drank a lot. Five days a week we were making a trip to the liquor store. I've tried all of them. The best beer for a party is Bud Light. It is sweet, full flavored, easy to drink, and about $25 for a 30 rack. If you are drinking with a couple of friends and don't mind putting out a little more money go with beers like Sam Adams, Guiness, any Special micro-brewery beers local to your area could also be good finds. Generally with alcohol you get what you pay for. Stay away from Natural Ice, and Keystone light unless you want to get seriously sick. They have higher alcohol levels, so you will start to put them back like Bud Light and find that you are hammered, then wake up the next morning ill. A decent tall, malt beer is Steel Reserve. Drink two 24 oz cans of those and you will have a bit more than a good buzz.

Other things to look into would be high quality wine, scotch, or bourbon.
