    This thread will be dedicated to discussing what we will/did have to drink on Titan game days.

    Before each goTitans tailgate, I will announce what will be the featured beer I'll bring and share.

    For the first preseaon game, I've decided on Mickey's Malt Liquor in big mouth bottles. It's higher alc content, but that's OK, it's only a preseason game...:wink2:

    Honestly, I don't really drink on game days. Maybe I'll start having an aptly named beer per game day.

    And no amount of painted ladies would get me to drink coors...what swill.

    I had some Coors way back when you couldn't get it in the eastern US, and thought it was great.
    I used to also have it occasionally in the early 90's when I lived in Arizona. I thought it was pretty good.

    I wonder if it was really better back then, or if my palette is better now...?

    ...either way, Coors Light has always sucked...

    I do like Coors light but in general I prefer the light beers like Miller Light and Michelob Ultra.

    Absolutely hate Budweiser. They use twice as much hops as the other breweries and the taste is just ttoo heavy for me.

    Coors is weird, when I was just a young lad, my step father would keep a cooler full of coors light iced down in the back of his truck at all times.

    He never kept up with how many were in there, because he always had a few cases on ice. He'd buy the cases in bulk so he could get a discount.

    Well, being a 16 year old, me and my buddies thought we were gonna be bad @sses and raid his cooler and get trashed.

    We grabbed some grocery bags and filled up the bags with ice got a total of about 15-20 beers. We'd never had Coors light before but we thought it would be better than the beast or PBR because thats all the money we could pony up when we had tried beer before.

    We all break out a beer and we count down 3....2....1 and we all crack open the can cheers each other and turn the cans upside down in a manner that would have made Stone Cold Steve Austin proud.

    Except Stone Cold wouldn't have been proud of what happened next:

    "Ugh, How could anyone drink this ****!" I said. I looked around at the guys and they were thinking the same thing I did.

    My buddy looks at me and says... "This tastes like monkey pis$."

    I looked at the can and I thought... Maybe it'll get better, I had heard beer was an acquired taste. I chugged the next gulp and decided to pour the rest of the beer out. I couldn't believe people drank that crap. We even returned the beer to the cooler. I didn't drink Coors light until I went to college.

    Funny how things change. I'd say about 10% of my student loan funds in college were spent exclusively on Coors Light.

    Like a phase, I left Coors Light behind in my college days. I wont drink it, even if its the only thing available. Same for Bud/Miller/etc etc. I'd rather not drink if I have to drink a lame stream domestic beer.

    I guess I've turned into a beer elitist at my old-young age. There's just so much better beer out there. I do endorse Mickeys as Hoffa said. That is delicious. Can't wait to see what you guys come up with.

    Any Magic Hat or Flying Dog drinkers here?

    Yikes! They still make Mickey's Big Mouth? Baaaaaad memories with that stuff back in the high school daze.

    I'll probably stick with my Bud Light Limes ;-)

    Not a big fan of Magic Hat. Just the fact they make a "pink" beer turns me off. Flying Dog is very good.
