ill drink BMC stuff if im at a bar and thats all they offer or if im working outside and i want something light do drink. When i want to sit back and enjoy a beer ill go with whatever craft beer im in the mood for. I personally think that the hating on BMC stuff has gone up a bit since they started making dumb comments about craft beer in their ads.

I'm curious; where are these legions of HBT lovers of Dos Equis and Corona?

The last BMC I had was the Campaign (sp on purpose) of beers. For what it is and the cheap price, *shrug*. But it was given to me so, neeener neener.

Actually I have made a decision to not buy any more beer. So far, I have been going a couple of months.

I'm happy being a beer snob. I don't care what you drink, if you like it, drink up. I'm probably on the douchie end of the scale when it comes to BMC and other cheap beers, I would turn one down (with a polite excuse), and drink water instead.

I tried a Bud light recently after months of not drinking anything but craft/homebrew and I had to discreetly pour it out after half a bottle. To me it has nothing to do with bashing BMC because it's the cool thing to do, I can't stand the taste no matter what the circumstance.

I still say, to each their own.

I can't remember the last time I drank a Coronoa, Dos Equis, or BMC. I just don't like light lager of any kind really, including the common European imports. Like McKBrew, I would rather drink water.

My parents visited recently and they went out and bought a couple cases of Yuengling (to take home, since they can't get it in MI). I drank a couple of those, and they were OK, but I would never buy it for myself.

Even though I don't drink those beers, I think the BMC bashing is way over done. It's so predictable and boring that its a cliche.

I've drunk Dos Equis. Not great, but it's drinkable.

I used to drink a lot of Corona. Most recently, at a party where Corona Light was pretty much the only option. Not great, but free, so

I sat in my office last Sunday with a Mich Ultra, because it was all we had in the work fridge.

I don't bregrudge anyone their preferences, and it's kind of ridiculous those who do.

Here's my philosophy on life.
Don't be an *******. Let people do what they want to do, as long as they don't hurt anyone else. Eat what you want to eat. Drink what you want to drink. **** who you want to ****. Make sure to eat plenty, drink plenty, and **** plenty. Let others be free to do the same.

Couldn't have said it better myself.

I don't want to let others **** who and where they want to because I'm tired of them polluting the gene pool. I think we, as a society, should force whatever causes impotence upon these people so that we can leave quality breathable air to those of us who deserve it.

And I was going to quote that "I am legion, we are many" thing, but someone beat me to it.
