Beer snob alert! And, interdweebs, that microbrew you drank last night with the crazy name and you thought you sounded cool for ordering it is probably owned by Anheuser-Busch

If you're gonna drink crappy beer this man paid the right price.

He's in San Diego and they're awarding him Bud Light?

San Diego is America's premier craft beer producing city, there's endless delicious beer brewed down there... Sucks they had to throw piss water at them when the tastiest American brew was only a 5 min drive away in all directions.

I would demand some real beer, or just find some bums and give it to them. Pretty weak.

Ooooohhhhhhh there are tons. Google!

But I will say I once took the morning flight to PDX for the specific intention of drinking and eating all day at a place called McMinnimans (sp?) on the Columbia river. Took the evening flight home. I don't remember much in between.

/Cool story, bro

Portland has some 30 breweries in it's vicinity. I've never heard san diego and craft beer used in the same sentence. And I'm a profesional brewer!
And west coast IPA's are okay if you like fizzy hop flavored water. Would it hurt to put some malt in there for some balance?

So you can't provide any evidence then?

A quick google turned up a bunch of beer enthusiast websites, that really contained no actual beer brewed from Portland.

The only beer worth drinking from Portland I can think of is Dolly Varden IPA by Metolius, the rest of their selection is garbage, and even the IPA is lacking.

Please provide evidence to support your claim, Google has been less than helpful.

I am very picky about my beer. I only drink beer that fits the following guidlines:

1. Has alcohol? - check
2. Wet? - check
3. cold? - check

Your favorite beer sucks, but I'd probably drink it anyway.

The world record holding fitness guy from San Diego didn't win. The winning couple were the ones in yellow from Lewiston, Maine.

Oh and the competition was held in Bethel Maine at the Sunday River ski resort.

I swear if it said "Bud Lite - Now with Semen!" on the label, some of you tasteless morans would drink it and still mock people who actually like beer.
