Mamasofi, you do not look old enough to drink. Legally.
While I love porters, stout, ales, I can't say that I'm a beer lover. If I'm going to ingest alcohol, it will almost always be wine or hard stuff. I've had Beck's or a good Indy IPA sit in my little fridge for six or more months. Meanwhile, lots of rum passing through......
I was thinking and maybe the best call for a beer lover is to have one or two proper beers and then stick to Michelob ultra or Amstel light for the rest of the night. Not ideal, but makes sense since after two strong beers the palate may become nonsensitive enough to tolerate the "lesser types".

All the macrobrews are no longer American-owned. Well, mostly.
Miller = South African-owned
Budweiser = Brazilian/Belgian-owned
Coors is heavily partnered with Canadian breweries.
The largest purely American brewer these days is ... Sam Adams.
Honestly, I refuse to consume the horrible crapola that is light beer . I just understand what's going on when I drink a delicious craft-brewed beer, and have wound up drinking them less often. Through trial and error, I know that one-a-day doesn't wind up ADDING any weight, but that I can't LOSE anything doing that.
If I sound snobbish on the beer front, well, that's because it's true: 15 years of brewing and tasting, plus spending time working in the craft beer industry kind of sets my vision in a certain way...
