According to Wikipedia, the contract brewer, City Brewing Company, contracts with some other folks you may have heard of. My guess is it won't taste much different than BMC.

* Arizona Tea
* Mike's Hard Lemonade
* Potosi Light
* Kronik Energy Drink
* Smirnoff Ice
* Sam Adams
* Drink Four Brewing Company

They might as well. Bud around here is over 7$ a six pack, beer is mostly what they sell anyway. I think it would be funny to see on the shelf though.

I'll pick some up and try it.
There is one across the street from the condo that seems to get national rollout products quickly.

In Upstate NY, there is a chain of 7-11 type shops called Stewart's that rolled out their own brew recently. It's brewed by Genesee in Rochester. Any Stewart's people out there?

WHAT??? Good Lord, that's what most microbrews cost around here, and a 30 pack of Miller is like $18.99.

Missouri has very low beer taxes compared to most other states.

drinking this tonight.
It isn't that bad.

seriously. It tastes far and away better than one would expect. It actually has an srm.
side by side comparisons with Natty Ice makes Gameday Ice the winner.

the things I do so you can have good beer information....


Oh... and the Gameday light has color and a head on it. It actually tastes like a lager.
a little sweet, no bitterness and no sh*t-- doesn't taste like a lite beer.
side by side with Coors Light -- Gameday Wins.
