    Eek. Has anyone seen that Bud Select 55? Really? Should people watching their calories to that small of a detail really be drinking anything other than water or some derivative thereof?

    I agree, Zeig is a very close #2.
    Lone Star (Light) #3

    Saint Arnold has some pretty good stuff as well.

    St. Arnold's Spring Bock is tops for Texas. I just had a left-over Shiner Black though, and really enjoyed that too.

    For me I would have to go with Shiner for Texas beer. My usual is Guiness but if you really want a good US beer try Harpoon out of Boston. Got hooked on that when I was on Boston.

    1st Beer would be Shiner if we're talking Texas Beer, after that it doesn't matter as the taste buds don't care what it is...:17:

    My first choice is always Guinness....if you can see through it, its just water!:8:

    Shiner is a nice "mainstream" beer. It amazes me how much it has spread outside of Texas in the last few years.

    I like a lot of the local brews I have tried in the Austin area. 512 Brewery and Live Oak Brewery both have great lineups. I don't care for the 512 Wit, but everything else I have tried has been great. From 512 my favorites are the Pecan Porter and the Pale; Live Oak I prefer the Primus, but it's Winter seasonal only.

    There is also Southern Star Brewery out of Conroe, TX. They are fairly new I believe, but the "Bombshell Blonde" is one of the better beers I've tried in the past year.

    As others have mentioned, St. Arnold's has a good lineup too. I like the Fancy Lawnmower.

    I've tried the "Commercial Suicide"; it was a pretty tasty English style Ale if I remember right. Will have to look for more of their other varieties to try in the future.

    The Black Metal Imperial Stout is nothing less than phenomenal. I was told by the beer seller at Gabriel's in San Antonio that we should have some down here next month. If you like Russian stouts or even Guiness then you will love it.
    Honestly, any thing Jester King has made has been good. I just prefer the darker beers.
