Highlife or Pabst Blue Ribbon
This isn't the only thread or conversation where new members have been using the term this way. Just because you may understand the difference doesn't mean the next guy does. Get back to using the term correctly.
Old Style (it's fully kraeusened you know.)
Landshark with a lime on a hot summer day
Hamm's, PBR. Does Tecate count?
Re: PBR, I grew up in Milwaukee when it was literally an old man's beer. But it was the first beer I ever drank, from a 7 oz can for my beer can collection, given to me by my dad. Hell, the Packers were probably on the TV. Hipsters aside, I enjoy it as a swill beer, even though it's no longer brewed in Beer City.
I guess if BMC = AAL:
Grain Belt Premium
Blue moon in the summer.
miller high life, molson canadian, rolling rock and corona
The Bros used it back in the nineties too, the way all of us who were members then used it. The way it's always been used until now. Why not tell them you don't give a damn about what went on here before you joined in 2010? Make sure you insult them for being "old" too.
Dos Equis Amber
Blue Moon goes down mighty good some times.
I don't understand how a good beer, all of a sudden becomes a bad beer, when the ownership changes hands.
BMC means the same thing now that it meant 20 years ago. Only the scope has changed. It will continue to change.
I didn't care much for Coors Batch 19 or Bud's Black Crown. I liked Bud's Lime-A-Rita over those two.
I haven't had one in a long time, but Blue Moon is okay with me.
Blue Moon actually is pretty good...
Heineken Light, Goose Island IPA, Stella Artois
Always like stella
But does it have to?
Blue Moon is good. I'll catch flak for it but I enjoy it.
Not technically BMC but I love a cold Tecate on certain occasions; after a long day fishing during hot months, WHILE fishing during hot months, sitting by the pool during hot months, or whenever I'm in Mexico.
I like my bmc like I like my coffee....I don't drink coffee
Within the rules? Blue Moon
Cheating a little? Labatt Blue
I definitely enjoy a Blue Moon now and then. On the AAL spectrum, PBR and High Life get the job done occasionally.
Blue Moon, definitely. It's a solid "Restaurant with bad beer list" fallback.
I like my coffee like I like my women... without a penis. On that note I drink Yuengling Lager. (out of a can) Does that count?
Blue Moon is not a BMC beer. The term refers to Bud, Miller, Coors, type beers - thin, fizzy, adjunct lagers, not just any beer brewed by the big international conglomerates.
You caught flack, but not the kind you expected.
Doesnt count. If it did then Narragansett would count. I cant even get Yuengling in my state and if it counted as BMC beer it would be sold in every damn state.
Lately I've been on a Coors Banquet kick. I had a glass with some BBQ and ended up going out and buying a 12-pack. I honestly really like it for a "whenever" beer.
You're right that it means the same thing here that it always did. It's an acronym we've long used to describe fizzy, yellow, adjunct lagers made by Bud, Coors, Miller, etc. Labatt Blue is also a BMC beer. It refers to a specific type of beer. Blue Moon and anything by Goose Island are not BMC beers, regardless of corporate ownership.
It's the newer members who are misusing and distorting the term because they haven't been here long enough to understand the way it's always been used on Beer Advocate.
