        I'm thinking the reference was to American macrobrewed beer.


        Some damn fine brewerys listed above.


        Some times, it's not the end of earth of you ingest extra carbs or it's not exactly primal as the occasional treat.


        As someone already said, I'd rather drink water then mic ultra or any macrobrewed beer for that matter.

          I'm a fan of Sam Adams Light. Not sure of the carb content, though...

          Check out my blog here.

            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 also give my vote to Amstel Light and Corona Light.

                  Budweiser Select is pretty good tailgating beer and very low carb. Amstel Light & Corona Light are also solid choices.

                    I miss beer


                    Like Katt, I'll splurge and have a good beer occasionally, rather than drinking a crappy beer just to have a beer.

                      I doubt any of these are low-carb but I say they're worth it!

                        Sweeping statement?


                        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".

                            I&#39;m surprised no one mentioned MGD 64, as in Miller Genuine Draft.

                            It has only 2.5 carbs and 64 calories, and although it&#39;s very light it tasted pretty good. Good enough to kill that craving, I suppose. You can even have two...or three

                              LOL! Shazkar and SS... I stand corrected. I hate the major American beers. Coors. Bud. Michelob. Miller. The macrobrews.


                              The microbrews are mostly ok.

                              Start weight: 250 - 06/2009
                              Current weight: 199
                              Goal: 145

                                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&#39;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&#39;t wind up ADDING any weight, but that I can&#39;t LOSE anything doing that.


                                If I sound snobbish on the beer front, well, that&#39;s because it&#39;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...
