Default Are you guys for real?

Do you seriously dislike Coors and Bud...and actually drink Dos Equis and Corona? I'm having a hard time with this. Are you bashing BMC Because it's cool, or because you really don't like it? And if you don't like it, why? I really don't see the big difference...They are all kinda bland and boring.

Seriously. I'm here for BEER

I like coors light when i've been drinking. A lot. And there's nothing else around. I don't like bud of any sort...never have, probably never will. I just got a "Mexican Sampler" for my birthday of Dos Equis, Tecate, and Sol, and find all of them unpalatable. I was pretty bummed about this actually, because I remembered liking XX amber a lot in my pre-brewing days.

I do like PBR. I'm not saying it's a mind-blowing beer, or that I'd order it over something that was more flavorful, I'm just saying that there's enough sick pow days followed up with a cold PBR at 9000ft to earn it a place in my heart. It's the ski bum's brew of choice.

Coming Soon:
Primary: Stone Vertical Epic 08.08.08
Secondary: Oaked Arrogant Bastard
Conditioning: Dead Guy Ale clone, Double-Dubbel
Drinking: Not for a while

Are you talking about a specific situation or person on the forum? I'm confused.

Not sure why you picked those 4 beers in particular to try to draw a line (I don't recall lots of BMC bashers saying they drink Corona or Dos Equis), but I'll play along:

I would never buy Bud or Coors. I'll drink them under the right conditions, if they're free.
I've occasionally ordered a Dos Equis Amber at a restaurant, if it's the best beer on the menu.
Corona - no way. I suppose if I could try one that wasn't completely skunked, I might consider it. But experience tells me that's not possible.

Mind you, I'm not in the "bash-BMC-it's-all-piss-in-a-bottle" crowd -- I drank my share of AB products in the past, and will still do so on occasion. But my tastes have changed, and the selection of beers available to me has grown.
No signature required.

Bud and Coors taste like beer-flavored soda to me. Miller Lite is quite ok, and I still enjoy it every once in a while. I haven't had much experience with Mexican beers, but Corona isn't any more exciting to me than BMC material.

Most types of beers have a time and place where they are just fine and appropriate, and that includes BMC - so I don't tend to bash them.

Those American light lagers all taste the same to me. I won't spit on someone who hands me one, but I wouldn't go and buy it either.
If you can't fix it with a hammer, you've got an electrical problem.

I like BMC. You just have to accept it for what it is.

I'll opt for a high-life over just about any light lager though. Drink straight from the bottle or can, through a lime in it, whatever. I'm not a snob and I don't bash it.

Not my favorite, but it is beer, and it does have it's place.

Primary 1: House Ale (yay!)
Primary 2: empty
Primary 3: empty
Primary 4: empty
Bottle Conditioning: Apfelwein
Bottle Conditioning: Apfelwein + Blueberry
Kegged/Drinking: Partigyle Brown Ale
Conditioning: New House Barley Wine
Conditioning: Ghetto canned kit bitter (Surprisingly getting better w/ age)
Just Finished: Edwort's Apfelwein
Up next: More House Ale ?!?

Corona (with a lime wedge in it) was the first beer I remember liking. I drank nothing but Bud, Miller, Coors, Pabst, and Natural Ice before this (with the sole intention of getting drunk) so Corona was a welcome change. I'll still have a Corona from time to time, but obviously my tastes have changed since I began drinking high quality brews and homebrews. I'll even have a Budweiser or a Coors if nothing else is available. Miller tastes too watered down for me, personally.

I think it IS trendy to hate BMC around here. People act like elitist beer snobs and pretend that their palate can't be satisfied with anything less than perfect beer.
