I guess it goes to show that if you throw enough money out there advertising you can sell just about anything. Not only that but have them rave about it and refuse to drink anything else while wearing apparel to promote for free!

If Bud light were Buddy's light beer I bet it wouldn't sell a single case to any sane beer loving individual.

Sorry folks I cant stand Anheuser-Busch InBev products.

While there are a few that are drinkable, I won't buy them only because they turned Americans into a bunch of watered-down piss water drinking lemmings that truly believe that bud is the king of beers.

You obviously don't know your American beer history...

Give the book "Ambitious Brew" a read.

I must admit, I am not a beer history buff. Please enlighten me.

Essentially because assuming you have already recouped the cost of your equipment from other batches, its cheaper to make piss water than to buy it. Besides... you can drink beer while brewing piss water. Try drinking while driving to the store to buy piss water and see how far that gets ya!!!

For those that refuse to drink InBev products, I get it. I too do not drink BMC. However, I still appreciate the ability for them to make barrel after barrel after barrel of beer and have the flavor profile be spot on to what they are looking for.

It's in the Sept/Oct issue of "Zymurgy." Not sure if they're online yet.

So how good are the lagers you are brewing tasting?

I brew some lighter lagers that BMC drinkers try which dont scare them away from craft beer and helps them make the transition to better beer.

Even if you do not read the book, watch beer on Modern Marvels. I totally get where AZ is going with his comments. LOL I have it DVR'ed and watch it every now and again when I get drunk.

My brother-in-law and next door neighbor love the stuff. One of my goals is to improve my process and skills to the point where I can produce this style. I understand that American Light Lager will show the flaws in your work.
