Wow Revy, that's a lot of typing.

All good, valid points though. I'm a little tired now, I think I'll go drink a beer. This was like work.

This is because a combination of prohibition and 2 world wars destroyed the micro/macrobrew industry, only a few companies survived. One was named Annheuser Busch. American light lagers are popular simply because they were the only companies that and manufactured and mass distributed beer. The reason they survived is because their beer is cheap to produce and carries a huge margin percentage. Mcdonalds is one of the largest, most profitable restaurant chains in the country. That doesn't mean it's food is gourmet. Dont mistake good business for good beer.

That being said, the american light lager is a legitimate and tastey style of brew. To stay with the analagy, you can buy a burger at McDonalds and make a burger at home. They're both Hamburgers, but they are not the same product.

Similarly, I always wonder what would have happened with St Louis's brew industry had the Trappists stayed at Cahokia.

Also, on the AmLtLgr topic: I have a PBR clone written down somewhere (so much rice solids) that I always threaten to brew for a local brewfest under the name "Hipster Juice" but my lagering capabilities are... not well regulated.

Yeah, where did it go? I didn't see anything so wrong that it had to be removed.

Tasty? I suppose if I had the choice between drinking horse piss and Budlight I would choose the latter of the two.

Its OKAY and not anti-american to bash the Bud.

So is the point of your thread to bash fellow homebrewers who have different tastes in beers than you?

No my friend. I am just curious why one would expend the effort to make crappy tasting (IMO) beer when there are so many more flavorful options.

Well, I don't like Belgians. I don't come onto a forum and tell people that they are ignorant if they like something I don't. I could call Belgians "bubblegum fruit drops" and all kinds of things because I don't like them.

People like what they like. Saying things like it's "horse piss" and that stuff just make people sound silly. If you don't like it, bully for you. But others do. But acting like it's cool to be an arrogant jerk isn't "cool" at all- it's ridiculous.

Tell you what. When you brew a perfect Bud Light clone, please share it with us. Instead of denigrating it, why not find out about the style, and then find out that it's probably THE hardest brew to homebrew perfectly. Until then, you just sound like an arrogant beer snob who doesn't appreciate what he doesn't understand.
