I thought that Miller and the rest of BMC Hopped their beers by showing the 500bbl boil kettle a picture of 1oz of Hallertauer Hops at 60, 20, and 5 minutes.

computers with XYZ (random useless software or upgrade) included !
guitar amps that go to 11 !
ShamWOW pick up 50% of cola !

.... please
Hey man, you need to lay off the amps that go to 11. That will forever be better than any amp that goes to 10 in my book. Everything else you are about spot on with. Was just bithin about that commercial while brewing on Saturday. None of my friends really cared though.

my problem with the whole thing is are we suppose to say "well now that I KNOW they add hops three different times, I'll give it another shot and like it". If that's what they've always done and we think it tastes like water, it's still gonna taste like water whether they do "multiple" hope additions or not.

The sad thing is Miller's advertising gurus did market research before running those ads. So apparently, the average US consumer buys into that crap. Of course, since craft beer sales still represent less than 7% of all US beer sales, it's not surprising the average US consumer buys into that crap.

I haven't seen the commercials, but who knows, maybe it'll actually be a good thing? I mean, if you're going to buy BMC based on an ad campaign, you clearly don't know much about beer... but from the sound of it, Miller's actually encouraging people to think more about what ingredients go into it? I'd rather see a BMC commercial that tries to sell itself on the merits of its ingredients and brewing practices (however fake) than its sexiness and popularity, cause once you start asking consumers to judge based on quality.... well, BMC ain't it.

The way I see it is that every commerical and every new ad campaign is money that could have been spent making a better beer.

Imagine if miller and budweiser took all that money they spend making commercials, and put that money towards making a decent beer. The world would be a better place.

Meh let them say whatever they want.

Ya they make a crappy beer but the vast majority of people do not really ENJOY beer. Ya sure collage students drown themselves in it and your friends will order a pint but I don't believe they truly enjoy it, otherwise they would quickly move on the better and better brews. However miller is a manly substitute for a "bikini martini."
