I like any beer brought into the US from a country that doesn't control the alcohol content. My brother goes to Canada, buys the legal limit of Molsons or LaBatts at The Beer Store, and brings it back. I had a friend who worked cargo for Pan American Airlines who would have someone in Manila place a case of San Miguel (with the hand painted labels) in the cargo hold of a Los Angeles flight for me. Both taste much better than their US imported equivalents.

Right now I drink Stella Artois if I want something light and refreshing, or Anchor Steam if I want a full bodied beer.

Two beers that I like that are readily available everywhere around here are Newcastles and Sapporo Draft.

Last time we were in Kauai, the IPA was phenominal, and I don't usually care for beer. Oops, the Corona Light when consumed in Mexico is also pretty good....

We took the bottles and set them inside a box and pssshhhhhtttt .. fill the voids with expanding foam then put them in the mail. They always made it safely.

Getting them out of that expanding foam was the real challenge but we always managed LOL

They just started selling it here in Ohio about a year ago so now we can just go to our local grocery to get it.
You could put the beer in a plastic bag first, or better yet, put the foam into plastic bags and pack around the beer to take up the space. I will be doing this next time we send my brother a beer. We do it often.

If you're going to drink light beer, why bother?

My husband and I brewed my first beer. We made a raspberry wheat. So now in six weeks I can drink it.
