    Genesse, Labatt or Rolling Rock. Labatt is more consistent and considering I'm from's the obvious choice.

    In college it was Iron city or Schmidt's - none of those elite beers like Bud, Busch, creme ales, or Champagne of Bottled Beers! Now, when desperate, Bud or Bud lite, depending on what the bartender feels like giving me.

    If I couldn't afford good beer I'd probably stop drinking beer.

    But if it's a party, everyone is drinking, and these are the options, I'll go with PBR.

    Yup. If I want something cold, refreshing, tasteless, and bubbly, I drink seltzer - if I needed alcohol that badly I would have larger problems. I hope this does not mean I do not respect beer.

    Haven't seen Jacob Best in it still being made?

    I'd goo Coors Original followed closely by High Life

    Yeah it does kind of take a deft palate to taste the differences and enjoy this type of beer from time to time in the right spots. Not everyone picks up on the nuances.

    I voted PBR above, but I'd go Hamm's all day long. Just fantastic flavor for what it is.
    30 cans for $11.98!!

    Just switchin' it up a bit, I like to appreciate all things beer. It's interesting to see the different takes on macro's. Hell, I bought a case of Coors this weekend and my wife asked what was wrong!!! LOL....of course, I haven't gotten too full of myself to be embarrassed by drinking macros yet. It's does the soul good!!!

    The foundation of my drinking in late high school and college was around Bud, MGD, Mikey's and Henry Weinhards. Wait, I just realized the Henry's may be considered my first micro beer (always thought SPA).

    Really, it was probably MGD. LOL. We thought that it was higher quality than Bud, Coors, and lite beers. Lite beer was huge back in the 80s.

    I don't know about helping to "forge America". At best they help a lower income guy get some well deserved brew for cheap after a hard days work. I get where you are going though. My pick was PBR. But you could have given Genesee as a choice.

    I'm no hipster, couldn't be further from it, but a PBR brings me back to sitting on my grandfathers lap getting to have some foam when I was a little kid. Always have some in the fridge because there is always an occasion that it goes with.

    It's not regular, although they did indicate that they recently packaged another batch. I'm not sure if you should expect to see Framingham Lager regularly. Just kindof a something I wanted to post. I voted for Coors Banquet.

    I would agree that there are few things as American as global multinationals.

    lordofthemark Initiate (0) Jan 28, 2015 Virginia

    Yeah well. Forged mostly post 1945 (though they began to emerge pre-war). More European and Japanese MNCs from 1960 or so, and from what had been called 3rd world countries from 1990 or so.

    They have an inevitable place in the world economy today. But when I grab a beer to celebrate all that is American and down to earth, I would rather do it with a beer made in America by an American brewery. And there are so many to choose from!

    Tough call, but I finally went for Rolling Rock over PBR. I think the skunk factor clinched it for me.

    I still think, when served from an ice chest, than Busweiser is solid. Out of the fridge, I can't....

    PBR works for me. I'm also of the opinion that Yunegline is worse than all beers listed.

    Nah. Budweiser, as an AB product, was established so long ago that the acquisition has no bearing on the Bud's consumer perspective. It's still an American product that was originally developed by a German-born American
  38. lordofthemark

    lordofthemark Initiate (0) Jan 28, 2015 Virginia

    If it "had bearing" they would no longer be Bud consumers, I guess. For many it has no bearing because they simply do not know.

    I mean their advertising lately is hammering away at the red white and blue, American Icon themes, including a concert at the Statue of Liberty. They are laying it on thick, spending money like bud lite - er, I mean like water, to make it "an American Product".

    In this global economy people are happy to turn their heads to such things. How many Japanese and Korean automobiles are built in the US and purchased by people who believe that Japanese made cars are better than American?
  40. lordofthemark

    lordofthemark Initiate (0) Jan 28, 2015 Virginia

    Huh? Some people do go out of their way to buy a car with an American name plate, though that has lessened I guess not only because of the reputation of asian cos but because so many american name plate cars have so much Mexican content. Anyway, while some folks here think Bud has better quality control than craft, that is not the case Bud is making in their ads, nor is it even about taste for the most part. It is very heavy handedly about culture - go look at the Bud facebook page for example - bottles with the statue of liberty, references to it being an American icon, and reference to their Statue of Liberty concert. Not a lot about the liquid, except that pairs with burghers.

    And a growing number of people in the USA want to limit the global economy just a little bit - and in beer it is easy to do that, and get great quality product.
