Big Picture Categories: beers

King's Cup might be the best drinking game out there. Everyone has their own version, there's ample drinking and sometimes -- on a few lucky occasions -- hot chicks end up naked. One of the best "games" in King's Cup is Categories, which often is represented by the Jack card. In Categories, the person who draws the card says a category (fast food joints, baseball stadiums, etc.) and everyone must go around the circle naming one until somebody stumbles. When that person fucks up, they drink. Make sense? Good.

We're so stoked about the start of both college and pro football that the only thing we can think about -- aside from the games, we suppose -- is how to get loaded while watching them.

Today's category is brands of beers. Brands, motherfucker. Bud Light and Budweiser are the same fucking brand. That would get your ass kicked in this game. We'll start and you guys continue in the comments. You can go again after every five comments. If it's an uncommon beer or microbrew, provide a link if possible. First person who can't name a beer has to do a Power Hour in 20 minutes, which, now that we think of it, may defeat the purpose of a Power Hour.

We'll start with a favorite of ours: Newcastle.

Slang your beer-drinking knowledge in the comments.

For whatever it's worth, I just noticed that both Blue Moon and Coors are up there. Blue Moon is a Coors beer. I don't know how picky you wanna be, but still. Same brewery, same owners.
