Best beer for gaming

We drink a lot of different beers, usually whatever someone brings. And we have players with diverse interests in beer. Optimator is common, Red Stripe, Leinenkugels (various), Sam Adams, local microbrews like Ale Asylum and Great Dane...
Friends also bring their home-made mead and jalapeño cordials.

I bring home brew to our games. I like an IPA or Irish red. My co-GM is partial to our maple wheat but I'm out at the moment so she has been drinking pumpkin ale. Another player seems to like the red but will drink just about any style happily.

In WI you can get New Glaurus at the gas stations. I always pick some up when passing through, I can usually trade it for 2-3 times its value once I'm a state or two away. The Spotted Cow is really good and they make the best framboise/lambic I've had (not that I'm an expert on the style).

Except, perhaps, in Seattle, where you can often get the likes of Fat Tire or Pyramid (and sometimes even more or less drinkable wine) in gas stations.

If you're in WI, I recommend Valkyrie Brewery—I'm looking forward to trying their War Hammer when I visit home in December. (Though it looks like some of their other seasonal beers, like the Berserker Barleywine, went away when they rebranded from Viking Brewery, alas!)

And except for Louisiana, where gas stations at least sell some Abita beer, and Walmarts (at least the last one I was at) sell Abita, Sam Adams, and a host of other decent beers.

Also, I've found some decent beers in Virginia gas stations. Or was that a CVS....?

As a previous participant in the (sadly) short lived Flagons & Dragons podcast I cannot recall a beer we ever tried that did not go well with our gaming.

I lived in Louisiana a few years... never did develop a taste for Abita beer.

I did like being able to pick up liquor at any grocery store - a big change from were I grew up in Oregon and where I live in Idaho where liquor has to be bought at liquor stores, and they all close early.


Here in Oklahoma, blue laws rule the day. No alcohol on Sundays or holidays. Boooo. And the best gas station beer I might get is a Boulevard Wheat.

I'm a lucky GM. Several of my players have taken to home brewing. They bring in their latest to game night for sampling.

Last game we had mulled wine and the players ended up screaming at each other and emptying bottles over each other's heads.

Was it light on the cloves? Did anyone get their wings? Did the 2 pixies leave by the door or the window?

Not just for the beer but also for the awesome four-pack container it comes in:

Fraoch Heather Ale


James Squire Golden Ale

I know one dm that is absolutely against people drinking during the game. Hold on, we've got a nanny state over here.

We may have nanny state over here i just wish it was like my nan way(god rest her soul)
That lady knew how to party
I like anything by the badger brewery especially Tangle foot and poachers choice

I think some of their beers are definitely an aquired taste. I've never been overly fond of their Satsuma beer, Wheat beer, Andygator, Abbey Ale, or Abita Light. I've never had Abita Golden or their Pecan beer.

Most of their other stuff I like, with my favorites being their Strawberry Harvest Lager and Turbodog. Their 25th anniversary beer kicked ass as well.

Yuck, blue laws. We have those in my old state. Thank God I live in Ireland now.


The best beer for gaming is no beer at all, really.

Unless you ask the guys in my GURPS/Dark Heresy group.

Thankfully the guy with the car never drives drunk from there.

Depends on whose house it is, and booze doesn't come out every game. Players tend to like when it does because it means more loot, especially with the low alcohol tollerance from 1 GM.

Homebrew was not uncommon when I have something ready. I haven't brewed nearly enough recently.

Saranac's samplers are the 12 packs of choice. They are local here in Upstate NY, in the right price range, and large enough scale to be found pretty much everywhere.

Various hard liquors are not uncommon. I keep my GM's bar well stocked.

That is a fantastic beer.


Ever tried Yebisu Japanese beer? That is a sweet drop.

Good call!

I'd be remiss if I didn't plug my favorite Colorado ale Laughing Lab Scottish Ale

I'm also fond of Myrcenary, but at 9.3% ABV it will let you know you drinking something with a bit of kick.

I love the huge amount choice in craft brews here in Colorado.


We used to get sloshed on blended whisky, various beers, and some good Cali chronic. Made the sessions a little muddled sometimes, but we didn't feel so bad when PCs died.

I'm sorta broke these days, so now I go for quantity...

If I'm a player, I'll drink the Yuengling that I always buy, but if I'm the DM, I go for a conspicuously-placed bottle of Arrogant Bastard Ale.
