I guess I'm off base.

I guess I'll wait for Spyked Ice @ 24% instead of 12%.
Spyked Strips
Spyked Fruit Rollups.

Bluntz for dipping your cigs in.

C'mon it's designed to be hidden or just blend in a purse. Why not put it in a pen or eye dropper bottle or dispense with a perfume atomizer.

How do HBTers with kids feel about this?

No matter what you think it is designed to be added to Bud products to "Improve" the flavor. That's damn funny.

What if they actually designed one for HBTers.
HopZ - Would actually contain Hops.

The marketing does definately feel, to me, to be aimed at a very young demographic. They're also recommendign that you "try them as shot!"; I'm not sure that you can argue that taking shots is a particularly responsible way to learn about drinking. Besides, who over 21 would even THINK about taking shots of a beverage that's only 12%?

So, I'm a little taken aback by this.

It'd go great with a Winter Mocha Mint cigarette.

My wife had the chocolate one in a sample of Bare Knuckle Stout. It was actually quite good.

Now the fruit flavors...nahhh.

Craft brewery market share is taking away from A-B. They're looking for another demographic. It's called capitalism. It should'nt be the responsibilty of A-B or any other company to make sure under age people don't buy their products. Teach your children to be respectful and make wise decisions. They will be 21 soon, what are you going to do then if they're still not respectful or responsible. Then you'll have people who can legally buy it and still do stupid things.


Live and Let Live. Survival of the fittest.

I don't know if I want to live in a country where a company can't market a sh!tty product if they want to. I suppose those tiny bottles of hard liquor behind the counter are for kids too because they're kid sized portions? Let's ban cigarettes and porno while we're at it and physically limit cars from going faster than 50. In fact, I bet we can make cars limited to geographical limits just by using RF ids on the speed limit signs. We can make the world safe for everyone so that idiots live as long as possible. Idiocracy comes true faster.

I know that the article asks for AG's to ban it. I wouldn't go that far. I am outraged though. I don't buy Bud so I can't affect them in that way.

With the war chest they have they can market a loss leader for some time. It will take a bunch of pressure to get 'em to knock it off.

I'm at least heartened that you see it as a bad idea.
