After years of drinking beer I finally wanted to figure out which ones I actually liked. I think doing side-by-side comparisons is a great way to figure that out… even though may rankings might be affected by my rising blood alcohol concentration
I mostly wanted to cover popular and widely available beers with this ranking. So, I made a trip to QFC and the local corner store for some of their finest brews . On
June 26, 2021 I invited some of my thirsty friends over to tackle this array of
15 beers and to find their favourites. The beers were sipped knowing full well which one was in your cup. Therefore, some slight preconceived
beer-biases may have been in effect… Oh no! I guess I’ll have to do an anonymous beer tier list some day . While viewing my ranking, keep in mind that I have an aversion to stouts and hoppy beers.
|A||Sapporo||Corona||Miller High Life||Dos Equis|
|B||Coors Light||Bud Light||Pabst Blue Ribbon||Modelo Especial||Coors Banquet|
This tasting actually spawned a seltzer tasting a couple months later, hosted by @yelli_r so I consider this a success. Some valuable information was learnt from this tasting session.
