Default Miller Light

I have been looking around, online and such, on information about Miller Light. I read on a bar plaque once that they don't use additives or preservatives in their beer, but the plaque was a little old looking. I want to assume that they still don't but I think they might now. Any of you guys know or care?

Don't know, don't much care either - but it does bring to mind a peeve of mine about the exception to the labelling laws that brewers (and vintners and distillers) in the USA enjoy. Any other consumable has a requirement to precisely label what is in it, and the nutritional value of everything. Beer, wine and liquor contain no such labels. So I don't know how you can check the accuracy of such claims.

You can thank the division of government agencies for that. Anything that goes through the FDA has to have the label. Alcoholic beverages go through the Bureau of AT&F, and don't get labels.

The ATF is so much fun. Ever call them and say "So I smoke Lucky Strikes, and I'm goin' target shootin' today with my .357. In your professional opinion, which goes better with that combo, Jack Daniels or Budweiser?"

Words cannot express how much I appreciate that this is a troll-free forum.

It sounds to me that someone good with words selectively came up with that sentence soley for the purpose of making the beer sound as wonderful as possible.

No preservatives..I should hope so with a liquid that undergoes fermentation...that doesn't even make any sense, of course there are no preservatives.

Yeah, like drinking and driving is a no-no, but they sell alcohol at the gas stations...is this a set-up or an oversight?

Go with the Jack...you don't have to pee as much...
