Beer snobs should seriously just drink wine. And, anyone who loves beer and knows it well can taste the difference between all the cheap ones as well as all the good ones. I love how people talk about all the nuances in a complex beer then say all cheap beer tastes the same to them.

No Bud or Miller for me. Rice beers are gross. I like my beer and my sake to be separate, thank you very much.

Seriously, do a side-by-side comparison of budweiser and sake. You'll be surprised.

If I'm brewing my own or buying from a store, I get tasty full flavoured beers. If I'm going tubing on the river, I get canned common lager (it just fits). After the race we drink common lager... it's just what you do. I can just imagine the looks if I popped the top off a trappist beer after a race.

Even so... I'm not a big fan of Bud, Coors or Miller. I've been known to bash them in the past, but I think it's true that some people find it cool to bash them. If someone is going to offer me a cold beer on a hot day, I'm going to accept it.

The only truly evil beer I can think of right now is this one:

You know, all of the skunky Euro-lagers and subpar Mexi-lagers would be okay IF...big if here...if they didn't cost so stinking much. If any of the former mentioned beers were as cheap as US BMC (we're talking cheap like Miller High Life, 18 long necks for 10-13 bucks) I'd try them more often when mowing the lawn. As it stands, I would hesitate to buy those overpriced, 8-9 dollar six pack bottles of crapola even if a gun was against my head. It's just the principle of the matter.

Sorry, but if I'm drinking lower quality beer, it better be cheap.

I am somewhat surprised to find how much love there is for BMC products on a homebrew forum...I suppose that it can be easy to make the assumption that homebrewer = craft beer enthusiast but that of course is not necessarily the reality and you (myself included) shouldn't make assumptions about other folks preferences and taste.

I drink all sorts of brew but I'm never really compelled to defend my choices because, well..who cares.

Drink what ya like.

We can dance if we want to
We can leave your friends behind
'Cause your friends don't dance and if they don't dance
Well they're no friends of mine
I say, we can go where we want to
A place where they will never find
And we can act like we come from out of this world
Leave the real one far behind
And we can dance



Its the Safety Dance!

ill drink BMC when its free or other appropriate situations (tubing down a river or at a ball game and the like). Same with the Mexican beers. In short, their not my favs but im pretty sure they wont kill me either. So I think im safe.

I seriously despise scudweiser. I despise coors light. I do like coors original banquet beer though. I drink Corona at the bar because when I have a choice of Bud, Bud Lite, or Corona - I'll take the damn corona.

I like Dos Equis Amber quite a bit. Just pounded a 12 pack of it at a party last weekend.

I dig almost all forms of Miller crap though. I love High Life, and Miller Lite is an acceptable lite beer when you only have the choice of BMC lite beers. I hate MGD though...

I used to enjoy Rolling Rock before AB put their d*** beaters in the mix.
