Although there is currently another Covid surge, we have gotten a brief glimpse back into our old social lives. While attending a Washington Nationals game this last weekend, I was reminded of how well beer and any recreational event go together. I then started to think how it is only at these events that I will spend upwards of $10 for a serving of beer. Usually beer I wouldn’t buy on a regular basis. 

Below is the list of the most common beers I see/try, and my rating. A lot of arbitrary things go into this rating, like drinkability, bang for your buck, and general enjoyment:

  • Red Stripe, 3.74/10 – is this beer great? Not really, but the bottle is by far the most mosh pit resilient on the list.
  • Regional Adjunct Lager, 6.66/10 – this is the beer that you get at the sports bar right across the street from the ballpark. They usually make them in tall boys, and somehow they are $5 a can OR LESS. I’m not an economist, so I don’t question how this is fiscally possible or responsible. Oh well…
  • Goose Island 312, 5.312/10 – ten years ago, this beer and it’s telephone tap handle were a go-to. It’s still refreshing, but I find paying more than $7 for one a travesty.
  • Budweiser/Budlight, 7/10 – hear me out. The aluminum bottles, plus the usually cheaper price tag make this a classic and best seller. If I didn’t need to drink five of them to get a buzz, the rating would have been higher. 
  • Lagunitas IPA, 9.420/10 – yeah yeah, an IPA gets the highest rating. But Lagunitas IPA is not only a great beer. No matter where I go, I know it will taste exactly the same in the can, in the bottle, or from the draft line. The only reason it doesn’t get a perfect score is because it’s probably not at every venue and I would absolutely buy this at a liquor store.

If you don’t like my list, just remember, I live in Washington, DC. The stadium alcohol selection is about as good as our football team, no matter what their name is.
