I'd try it but I prefer variety and my own homebrew.

Budweiser is a great beer if you like light American lagers - they consistently put out a product that tastes the same no matter where you are - its a brewing achievement.

As for the BMC corporations I'm all set with supporting them but I don't support the beef industry either - that's a separate issue from the actual product

If I could buy a really finely tailored suit of clothes at WalMart would I? Call me irrational, but it would have to be really, really cheap.

I have no problem with buying a BMC product when out when it's the "special" for 1.00/mug or slightly more. It makes me appreciate my home-brew even more. You don't have to like that I do this... it's my decision and not yours to make.

AB and InBev seem to have some very nefarious business practices. I don't like their sneaky tactic of claiming that some beer they own is made in a little brewery when in fact it's brewed at their AB brewery. That's lying pure and simple.

Miller-Coors, though a large business, especially now, doesn't seem to have those business practices, and I don't have a problem buying their non typical American lagers. They got that big by buying out the little guys who saw large stacks of cash as more important than brewing their beers. That's business I suppose...

Sort of off topic but yesterday I bought an oil can of the Fosters "ale" product. I dont think I have a sophisticated enough palate... because it reminded me of their other beer product...

That being said, it was on sale, and I would buy it again at that price...

I like Foster's blue and green cans.
That's the only ESB I've had...

Blue Moon. Especially their honey wheat. Been trying to replicate it unsuccessfully.

I really enjoy the Blue Moon seasonals. And I agree with rodwha about business practices. I hate seeing AB-Inbev trying to be sneaky. The documentary Beer Wars reveals a very good example of this.

Just pointing out that SABMiller is no better than INBEV.
