7 delicious (non-whiskey) barrel-aged beers

Why a Miller Lite Was the Best Beer I’ve Ever Had

I’ve got one in my mini-fridge. The reason I’m telling you this is because I want to frame my statements here properly. I’ve had good beer, trust me. The best beer I’ve ever had, though, was a Miller Lite.
