I was thinking about us (being the type of people that enjoy a variety of beers) being called beer snobs. I rarely ever buy the same six pack twice in a row, I like the variety.

aren't the BMC guys who stick exclusively to their one brand of beer being more of a snob than we are? at least we try new beers and are open to the possibility that they could actually taste good.

Wow, I have actually never thought about it like that.
I think the "snobbery" comes from people that like good beer thinking they are better than people that stick with one BMC.

This is a pretty good point. Snobbery, Ignorance and Prejudice; BMC drinkers.

Hmm... Say no to Bud supremacists!

You can often spot them on there way to meetings wearing a Budweiser box hat.





(Sometimes known to wear other BMC hats).

I wonder if he dropped both the baby and the budlight at the same time, which would he pick up first?

I firmly beieve that there are 2 types of beer. One you use to get drunk and one you drink for flavor. Most people just use beer to get drunk and they drink the beer that is the most flavorless. They don't want flavor to get in the way of getting drunk.

Let those people have that. That is what that beer is for. Who wants to drink a 12 of Guinness to get drunk?

It's not hard to get drunk on beer with flavor. There's lots of flavorful beers that are very quaffable. Ed's pale, or BM's SWMBO slayer spring to mind. Exclusive BMC drinkers are snobs (mostly kidding). I recently bought a 30 pack of Natural Light, cause it was $10, I didn't want to show up to band rehearsal empty handed, and it has lots of "drinkability". That crap can serve a valid purpose too.

Stupid things people ask me about my beer...

Drinking a Wheat beer...
them: How come you didn't put an Orange in it?

I offer them a nice Pilsner:

Them: I only drink lagers.
explain: It is a lager..
Them... What's Budweiser...
explain: Lager...
Them: Oh so this is like Budweiser

Takes beer away...
