Louisiana

2.1/5  rDev +14.1%
look: 2.5 | smell: 2 | taste: 1.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 2.5

So I was here in Louisiana attending a local crawfish boil, and as I scanned the montains of crustacian carcasses I noticed that everyone there had the same silver cans of bud light poking out of their piles that I always picture at a crawfish boil. I always picture that because as far back as I can remember, that is all I have EVER seen anyone drink at these things. There's never even Miller or Coors for the sake of changing it up. It is ALWAYS Budwieser. I always figured this was because it was cheapest, or because people in charge didn't know any better or whatever.

Then I started thinking, what would I pick to pair with boiled crawfish? It has to be light and drinkable, because you're going to need alot of it to wash down that spice and keep cool in the heat of the outdoors. Low abv helps in that department as well. And what about flavor? What plays well with crawfish? Well, corn actually was the first thing that came to mind. Crawfish and corn have such a natural affinity for eachother that having one without the other is like having peanut butter without jelly. Its ok without, but why cheat yourself?

So if I'm looking for a beer with light body, low abv, and lots of corn flavor, and I can drink gallons without feeling full or drunk, it turns out Budwieser is damn near perfect! Factor in that its price is condusive to feeding the five thousand and you have a winner on your hands. Don't fight it. Besides, wrapping your gut-goobered, orange-stained fingers around a tulip glass to quaff your IPA really just wouldn't be right.
