Drinking what you like should be your choice, not what someone else trys to shame you into drinking.

I drink BMC and love it as I do lots of craft brews

+1 one to both statements. Have you had the Schlitz original format that they released 2 years ago, it's the 1970's pre-merger recipe and it's damn good. Also SAB miller re-release Stroh's as well. Fun stuff.

Had the Schlitz and thought it was a pretty good beer on a warm day. Also tried the Michelob Original Lager and thought that was pretty good too!

Best "light beer" for me.

If BMC were to put its resources into making GREAT beer and less money on outlandish marketing they would have a better product and my support. They are the Ikea of the brewing world. Would you rather have a dining room table from Ikea or Ashley Furniture? You get what you pay for. We will never get rid of BMC and they will always own most of the market share. But they will always make cheap beer.

I dont condone people for purchasing BMC, but i dont agree with there business model. Quality<Quanity

They didn't release it here in CO, as far as I know, but I had some the last time I was in Kansas. I see why my granddad drank Schlitz.

Boo boo: Like I always say, a "real man" drinks what he damn well pleases, regardless of what anybody thinks. If John Wayne had a taste for some fruity drink served in a pineapple, he'd order one, and knock out anybody who gave him any crap for it.

I have bought "craft" beer from BMC and will do it again. Some of it is pretty darned good. I thought Bud American Ale was a really nice surprise. Tasted an awfully lot like the amber ale that I brew for myself.
