They may never produce a nectar as sweet as Keystone Ice Light, but the folks at Great Lakes Brewing Company make some damn fine brew. Don't take our word for it though, which is wise since we just vouched for Keystone Ice Light.

At the 2011 World Beer Championships, the hearty and well-lubricated GLBC took home three gold medals, one each for Commodore Perry, Conway's Irish Ale, and Burning River. All of them were rated as "Exceptional," which is fancy beer expert speak for, "Will get you drunk and taste delicious."
