Default Is drinking non craft beer so bad?

I love drinking a good beer that is just no your typical "lite" beer. But on hot days if I'm outside or if I will be drinking more than 3-4-8 I prefer drinking the commercial beer from pbr to high life. Is that so bad??

No. Every beer has its place in my opinion.

I personally hate the term "craft beer" as if some vegetal, estery microbrew made by some hipsters that don't know what they're doing is somehow "better" than the macro produced light lagers that are flawless in their production.

Three words (or just one if the dashes make it one word):

Lime-A-Rita

The only beer worth drinking is beer you make at home, on your stove, under the range hood where greasy cat hair can fall into it and is then fermented in an old tool bucket in a dank, warm closet before being siphoned into used Jolt bottles using a discolored piece of fish tank hose and carbonated with half as much table sugar as was in the wort to begin with.

Who cares what people think...drink what you want to drink. I wouldn't have all of these Carlo Rossi 1-gallon carboys if I cared what people thought. (I let my wife drink it...but still...it's in my cart when I go to Total Wine)

I still enjoy Micheladas (Bloody Beers with Clamato). A sin?? Maybe, but I find them tasty on some days. (And I am not going to put a top quality beer in one of those)

Drink what you like when you want. If we let other peoples opinion dictate what we did we would all be drinking BMC type beers because I believe that style controls about 80% of sales.
