different scenarios below:
For a warm, sunny day at the beach? Tecate
On a cold winter night? Guinness
A crisp sunny day? Fat Tire
During poker night with the bros?
Firestone Double Barrel Ale
With sushi? Kirin Ichiban
When we’re hosting a BBQ? Coors
If you’re throwing a “kegger”? Sierra Nevada Pale
When I’m feeling adventurous?
Samuel Smith’s Organic Lager
When I’m trying to impress a lady?
Trying to relive my youth? Lucky
Before a hip-hop show? Mickey’s 40oz.

the throbbing cranial sensation of a Heineken hangover. So next
time you’re at a bar or a quickie mart and are not sure which
bottle of brew is going to suite you, go for a Heineken. You’ll
