Well, when a vast majority of the beer sold in the US consists of beers whose style and flavor are almost identical, what do you expect? This is just another case that shows that ad men, not brewers, run the major American breweries.

He says that Microbrewers say their beers taste different. And he says they are wrong. What do you think?



Yep, he's stupidly. I have NEVER had a microbrew that tasted like Coors lite, or Bud, or anything like that. The only thing worse than this idiot showing how ignorant he is, is the fact that there are potentially hundreds of thousands or more who will take his word as the gospel, simply because he has written the article. We need a letter writing campaign to set him straight. The least he can do is have a few microbrews before he starts spouting such garbage. Ok, I'm pissed now.

He's a stock/money type guy. I looked at his other articles. He's obviously putting forth a conclusion he expects people to take for granted in an attempt to back up his take on boxed beer. Didn't work very well. I wouldn't take his stock market advice at face value either since it's quite obvious his opinions are jaded and/or he doesn't research his articles properly.

lol - ha ha ha - dr seuss

ok seriously, I might drink beer in a box - would be kind of convienient for a party or camping/fishing kind of excursions

i wonder how it would stay carbonated though ? a container like wine in a box probably woulnd't keep it carbonated once it was opened - not that it would bother me to drink the whole thing, but I might not want to drink it all at once

kind of suspect that cans would be better

and Q2XL - thats the best avatar ever

What can you expect from people who think that drinking Heineken makes them look cool?
