How can anyone drink Budweiser ...yuck
Last night a friend offered me a bud and i hadn't drank one in years so i decided to take one and i almost threw up... its piss water in a bottle ...why would anyone spend good money on the commercial beers when so many good small breweries make great brew?

A lot of people haven been introduced to craft, and feel lost in the isles. So they go to what they've always known, piss.

Because they like it? Just like some people like Coke, or Pepsi, or Dr. Pepper, while I don't. I don't knock them for liking Diet Coke, even though I don't like it. So what? I don't care what other people like or don't like.

I'm with you on this one. I think our palate changes.. It is all in what you get use to drinking. I drank bud for years and thought it was the best! Now that i've expanded my horizons and drink some craft beer and brew my own I cant stand the taste of bud ( what little taste that there is)

A lot of my friends drink Bud and love it, I used to love it and hated craft beer. Everyone rips BMC, but I find it pretty amazing that they can brew that much beer with constancy. You'll never get a case that tastes different, I can't say that for some of the craft beers that I've had. I've had infected beer, completely different tastes and I've bought many craft beers that I've dumped because they were just awful.

Its too flavorless to be that offensive. I can drink it, but generally choose to not drink beer if that is my only choice.

On my last brew day,my son bought me a 24 ouncer to go with a couple of old milwaukee beers I had. The bud light 24 tasted like fizz water by comparison. almost no flavor at all. Yuk. I used to drink bud because it had the most ABV.

Congrats!!! You've hit the 1 millionth Budweiser drinking thread milestone!! :onestar::onestar::onestar::onestar::mug::onestar: :onestar::onestar::onestar:

OK, it's light sarcasm so don't get offended ;) I'd say 90% drink it because it's so cheap. The large majority of individuals I see in the store buying 24oz Bud cans don't look too well off. Now of course not everyone drinking Bud is poor or on hard times so don't everyone get all tissy about that comment, I just think the overwhelming majority drink it for that sole reason... it's *cheaper* than soda or bottled water!

I'd say about 5% drink it solely for the advertising and name recognition. Believe it or not there are people walking around that honestly believe the most advertised and most selling products are the best out there. There are some that believe Dominos is king of pizza. The other 5% are simply used to it and genuinely love it.

I keep PBR in my garage fridge, and will continue to do so even after my first home brew is done. Where I live, you can get a case of PBR tall boys for $20, and that's cheaper than Bud. Has more body and taste than Bud, too.

I really like the best craft/micro beers. I buy them regularly, but that's not the only kind of beer I drink. Even if you can afford it, you can't eat lobster every day or it'll start to get boring. Ya gotta throw in a hamburger or a chili dog or plate of french fries regularly. Makes you appreciate the lobster even more. :)
