"The three men and Vice President Biden ate peanuts and pretzels as they sipped beers at an outdoor table set up steps from the Oval Office. Obama drank a Bud Light, Gates a Sam Adams Light, Crowley a Blue Moon and Biden a non-alcoholic Buckler." USA Today OK, who wins? Definitely not Obama (is that the only beer he's ever heard of?) If you want a light beer, Sam Adams is a decent choice. I've never had a Buckler, but the trusty interweb thingy tells me it's a Heineken brand, considered so uncool in Holland that Heineken don't sell it there! But actually I think drinking low/no alcohol beer can be cool. On a hot day, beer can be very refreshing without the alcohol. Some of them are fairly disgusting (anyone remember Kaliber?) but I had a Flensburger no-alcohol in the summer that was very good and went nicely with my Wiener Schnitzel. (Are there any mean rumours that Biden has a GWB-style issue with drink?) I remember Blue Moon as a pretty decent wheat beer, but perhaps I'm making that up. But, if I'm right, I'll score it: Obama, Gates, Biden and Crowley.
