The BA seems to disqualify D.G. Yuengling and Sons Inc. based on the adjunct stipulation. The adjunct stipulation seems to be pretty subjective. Seeing as how adjuncts could be right for the style of beer Yuengling makes. I think the most important thing is being independent of BMC and size. Heck those 2 don't even bother me as long as the beer is good. I admit being jealous of people who like inexpensive mass produced beer. I wish my beer cost as little as theirs does.

When I started getting into beer, I drank a lot of Yuengling. Still will have a few when it costs 8$ for a craft draft at the bar, or when I have guests that drink bmc. To me they are still a micro, and family owned with a good beer is the selling factor.

yesterday we got some new neighbors right across the street. I saw them in the liquor store.
husband: what kind of beer do you want?
wife:it all tastes the same to me.
husband: ok, you'll have Busch Light then & I'll drink the good stuff.

I looked over and he had a case of Busch Light & a case of Bud Light. I laughed a little and said, "you won that one." he smiled & nodded like he was getting away with something.

As I was cleaning my garage today, I was taking count of all of my bottles and other supplies (sadly I broke both my hydrometer and thermometer) and he asked "why do you have so many bottles?" I said I used to brew my own beer and now I'm getting started again.


He said, "well make sure the cops don't see you, its illegal you know." After clarifying how it isn't illegal he still said it was since making Moonshine is illegal, why would it be okay to make beer. Then he reminded me not to get caught.

On a craft beer blog devoted to the very best beers in the world: "weizenbocks and dunkelweizens are some of my favorite lager styles". The guy obviously drops major coin on rare beers to rate, so this was a bit surprising.

After laughing my @ss off to this thread for the past month, I finally have a contribution.

Sent a sixer of my first beer, a cooper's ipa extract kit, to my sister and BIL, been waiting for a few weeks for some feedback, was worried that they had tried it and were afraid to tell me it sucked. They normally drink BMC but i've caught 'em with some good stuff in the fridge now and then.

Sis texted me tonight, they had some people over and broke it out. "overall impression is that they like it, xyz said that it was a really good stout, almost like guiness"

She said she tried to explain the ipa part but to no avail. (in their defense, it did come out very dark, i guess the BMC crowd has 2 categories, light beer (fizzy yellow water) and guiness (anything darker than urine)

Before I knew anything about beer, I thought that beer comes in five flavors: light lager, premium lager, ice lager, dry lager and dark lager. That's all the beer flavors.

Any other description was simply superfluous.
