    Primal Fuel


    I will agree with a good ale when it calls for it. Downtown Seattle, we have a bar (used in "Sleepless in Seattle" actually!) and they have chilled mugs, straight from the freezer, with several ales on tap. Would I go there and order a Michelob Ultra? NO WAY!


    But, sometimes, I am just 'fiending' for a beer.

    If you are after lowest carb, it's ULTRA. Sorry, thems the facts.


    There is a web page that lists alcohol, carbs, and calories of virtually all beers available in the US.


    Don't be a snob, ULTRA dark is OK. I'm not going to ever say great, but OK. If you don't want to drink ULTRA for ego or purist reasons, you will ingest more carbs.

    I just order a real beer, and keep them few and far between. :P But I guess I am a beer snob. American beers, most of them, taste awful.

    We get Corona Light every now and then, although we're an IPA household at heart. The lights have 5g carb per bottle, and it's not so much that they taste better than the Ultras - they have a hint of flavor period. Add some lime and salt the top of the bottle like a margarita for some much needed extra flavor.


    Or...you could just get a Stone IPA. The gargoyle on the bottle is an effective devil on my shoulder. It feels good to listen to him sometimes - especially with cooler weather coming in the northwest.


    Have I mentioned how good looking my husband is? I'm sooooooo lucky.

    it's a tough season for this conversation. Oktoberfest is my most favoritest style of beer.

    It's grandma, but you can call me sir.

    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......
