You do realize that BeerWars was filmed from a pretty selective point of view correct? I wouldn't believe everything in that documentary either. I do wonder if that former Sam Adams rep is still trying to schlep her caffeine beer. Yeah nothing says a brewer cares about making great beer than someone selling a caffeine infused beer to target college binge drinkers.
Anyway, I'll give Black Crown a shot if I see it on draft at one of the Canes games or if a friend offers me a bottle. I didn't think Bud's American Ale was all that bad - just could have been more.
