ill drink BMC stuff if im at a bar and thats all they offer or if im working outside and i want something light do drink. When i want to sit back and enjoy a beer ill go with whatever craft beer im in the mood for. I personally think that the hating on BMC stuff has gone up a bit since they started making dumb comments about craft beer in their ads.

I'm curious; where are these legions of HBT lovers of Dos Equis and Corona?

The last BMC I had was the Campaign (sp on purpose) of beers. For what it is and the cheap price, *shrug*. But it was given to me so, neeener neener.

Actually I have made a decision to not buy any more beer. So far, I have been going a couple of months.

I'm happy being a beer snob. I don't care what you drink, if you like it, drink up. I'm probably on the douchie end of the scale when it comes to BMC and other cheap beers, I would turn one down (with a polite excuse), and drink water instead.

I tried a Bud light recently after months of not drinking anything but craft/homebrew and I had to discreetly pour it out after half a bottle. To me it has nothing to do with bashing BMC because it's the cool thing to do, I can't stand the taste no matter what the circumstance.

I still say, to each their own.

I can't remember the last time I drank a Coronoa, Dos Equis, or BMC. I just don't like light lager of any kind really, including the common European imports. Like McKBrew, I would rather drink water.

My parents visited recently and they went out and bought a couple cases of Yuengling (to take home, since they can't get it in MI). I drank a couple of those, and they were OK, but I would never buy it for myself.

Even though I don't drink those beers, I think the BMC bashing is way over done. It's so predictable and boring that its a cliche.

I've drunk Dos Equis. Not great, but it's drinkable.

I used to drink a lot of Corona. Most recently, at a party where Corona Light was pretty much the only option. Not great, but free, so

I sat in my office last Sunday with a Mich Ultra, because it was all we had in the work fridge.

I don't bregrudge anyone their preferences, and it's kind of ridiculous those who do.

Here's my philosophy on life.
Don't be an asshole. Let people do what they want to do, as long as they don't hurt anyone else. Eat what you want to eat. Drink what you want to drink. **** who you want to ****. Make sure to eat plenty, drink plenty, and **** plenty. Let others be free to do the same.

Couldn't have said it better myself.

Thread over.

I don't want to let others **** who and where they want to because I'm tired of them polluting the gene pool. I think we, as a society, should force whatever causes impotence upon these people so that we can leave quality breathable air to those of us who deserve it.

And I was going to quote that "I am legion, we are many" thing, but someone beat me to it.
