The big thing that I haven't seen anyone mention, simply comes down to variety. I don't have a problem with folks who drink BMC, but, doesn't it get old? I'm not talking about some of the folks here that may mix it up with craft beer and BMC, but the guys like my father-in-law that drinks Coors light exclusively. At home I keep 4 homebrews on tap, and always have anywhere from 6-8 different craft beers on hand in the beer fridge. When I decide to grab a beer, I have a lot to choose from, and switch things up. This is the best part of being a beer drinker/brewer today. I couldn't imagine being a BMC drinker that drinks the same exact beer over and over and over again.

This is really no different than any other hobby. Some just drink beer, some make it hobby.

One of my other vices is stereo and home theater gear. It's no different, really, Some just listen to music on a boombox and enjoy it, some have 12 pair of speakers, a dozen or more different amps and receivers, different DACs, a few different CD and DVD players, tape decks, turntables, etc. and still are looking for the holy grail.

Ever since I made the transition to good beer, guess how often I've been drunk? It's extremely rare if I ever reach the point past a buzz. Craft beer is to be enjoyed.

It's really a fantastic thing, and I truly think there is a beer out there for everybody because beer is so dynamic, just like people. Hey, psychologist think we're simple enough to be assigned either a Type A or Type B personality, that's two categories. Hmm, what else has two categories and is great...oh yeah, beer: ale and lager! It must be a sign
wonderful way to express the beauty of barely...... my sentiments entirely

I find it ironic that with your own argument, you shoot yourself in the foot. I'll agree that there is a beer out there for everyone.

Just, like it or not, for some people that beer is Budweiser. And there's nothing wrong with that.

I drink Bud Light because I have a mortgage and two car payments. I also have two daughters and a wife who depend on me to support them.

Bud Light is drinkable and cheap.

Can I walk into the local homebrew store and drop 80 bucks on beer...you bet.

do I enjoy drinking those beers.

HELL YES

can I afford to do it all the time....unfortunately no.

Nothing in the world is better after a long day of yard work in 100 degree heat than a cold shower while drinking a cold bud light.

ive tried a shower beer with craft beers and it doesn't work the same.



So when the kids are back in school and my wife goes back to work and I get a raise will i drink craft beers more often....Yes,

but im not going to stop drinking Bud Light.

Unless Yuenling is on sale.

Good friend of mine is what I would consider a wine snob. Now, keep in mind, Iowa historically was a fairly significant player (albeit maybe not a major player) in the grape industy. But to him, Iowa just can't produce grapes for a good wine. Oh, and strawberry, rhubarb, blackberry, cherry, watermelon..... those aren't wines, either.

And you're right... it's not necessarily snobbish to "drink what you like and avoid what you don't". Where it becomes snobbish is when you look down on someone else because THEIR choice of drink doesn't measure up to YOUR standards. And quite frankly, that attitude will do more damage to the craft brew and homebrew crowd than any tongue-in-cheek Buffalo Wild Wings commercial.
Actually, I visit wineries, wine shops, and wine bars on a regular basis. But, I think the wine culture in Virginia is a little different. Virginia is to California today what California was to France 40 years ago.

Yes, looking down on someone purely because they like something different than you is snobbery. However, I find it legitimate to be concerned that others shoot down "dark" or "fancy" beers because they don't know any better and, at same time, support corporations that would just assume destroy breweries I love.

Bud is good because you get used to it. Like the ads in this forum.
