Default 7-Eleven Beer

Anyone have any doubts that it's probably better than BMC?

Sounds like they'll be catering to the light beer drinkers (driven by $$), so . . . .make it BMC7.

It's nice that their going to take care of our youth though: "For its second brew, 7-Eleven selected an Ice Ale variety with a bolder taste and higher alcohol content to appeal to younger, legal-age drinkers."

now, when they say $2 for a single, is that a 24oz or the 64 oz super big gulp?

the world’s leading convenience retailer thinks it has another winner with Game Day, a new store-brand premium lager beer...
Light beer is the most popular flavor profile among beer drinkers. Of the top 20 brands by sales, numbers 1, 2 and 3 are all light varieties and they make up more than half of the list, according to Beverage World’s 2009 Beer Report. Creating a 7-Eleven version seemed like a logical choice. For its second brew, 7-Eleven selected an Ice Ale variety with a bolder taste and higher alcohol content to appeal to younger, legal-age drinkers.
Since when are "light" or "ice" beers considered Premium beers?
From what i get out of that article BMC is considered premium by them. I love marketing were popular and premium are interchangeable in a description.

Not mention where the word "import" is used for domestic beers not made by BMorC.

Premium is an industry term for a macrobrewery's non-discount beer.

For Anheuser-Busch, Busch beer is their subpremium brand and Budweiser is their premium brand (Michelob is "superpremium").

For Miller, Milwaukee's Best is their subpremium brand; Miller (e.g. MGD and Miller High Life) is their premium brand.

For Coors, Keystone is their subpremium brand and Coors is their premium brand.

So where does that put Natural Light on the list?

to me this is similar to the restaurants "own" beer mentioned in another thread. you know darn well 7-11 is not opening a brewery. they are at best repackaging another manufacturers beer. probably BM or C. in any case i expect it to be just another run of the mill clone of a BMC.

Or even worse, some Yankee Jim. We get that crap up here for some reason.
