I used to drink this a lot…

…but then discovered local craft beer. Chance are good that if you’re a Minnesotan, you know this beer. It’s our version of PBR, Iron City, Blatz, etc., etc. The beer pours pale yellow in color, with a light white head. The aroma is light and sweet, not hoppy or overly malty, but definitely more flavorful than your typical American pale lager. The old timers will tell you that they could detect a flavor change (water?) when this beer moved to New Ulm… me, I couldn’t tell… Not my favorite, but definitely one of my favorites for this style of beer.

I'm one of the lucky ones... I was drinking Minnesota craft beer before I probably should have been doing so... that's not to say that I wasn't drinking Old Style as well, but we won't talk about that... I'm the founder of MNBeer.com and a hardcore advocate of local craft brew. I like to brew beer as well. I also like to ride bikes, but that has nothing to do with beer, so I guess I'll shut up and drink.
