The taste of Budweiser is not nearly as bad as their business practices, and InBev is even worse. They're willing to lose 5% of their customers in order to make 10% more profit by lowering the quality of their beer. Then they buy out a craft brewery like Goose Island to capture back their lost market share but apply the same business practices. Quality goes down, profits go up. When people catch on and move to another brewery they'll buy that one out to.

There's nothing wrong withe the American Light Lager style, just the label on the bottle.

And yes other businesses use the same practices but I don't shop at Walmart because I can go to Target or Kmart. The same way you can drink PBR or even MillerCoors at this point because they are not the biggest offender.

I love an ice cold bud. I've also enjoyed the American pilsners I've been making.

Drank a bunch of bud last weekend at my buddy's wedding, first bud I've had in probably a year. It was good.

Democracy whiskey sexy blue jeans!

Default It's all about the money

When what beer I bought used to about what I could afford. When me and the wife married cheap beer and and only a few cases a year was all that in the budget. Fast forward 27 years and Kids are gone I quit smoking and home brewing is IN. I really do not like Bud or Miller Etc. Drink what you like or can afford. Beer and wine snobs may not see the other side of life. God when I was young 75 cents bought a quart of Genny for a quick buzz. As a side note I've spent top dollar for craft beer that was swill. To each there own.

I remember when Bud was the King of Beers and was one of the most expensive beers a person could buy. What was that old saying, “Budweiser, you must have just got paid, to drink that expensive of a beer. “

LOL

It's still not that cheap where I am. Bud runs $6-7 for a sixer depending on what variety you're talking about (Light is closer to $6 and Platinum closer to $7). If cheap is your reason you should get something like Natural Ice or drop by Walgreens and pick up some Big Flats.
