That and the fact that all the money you have is the quarters jingling in your pocket.

I never really farked with St. Ides; Colt or Blue Bull were the way to go. Perhaps a nice Hurricane to celebrate a stormy day. As far as wines, Thunderbird all the way. The red makes for a violent night.

adenosine: Of course they make water, too!

Anheuser-Busch (now InBev) did the same thing. I wouldn't be surprised if the regional soda bottlers were able to do the same thing. They have the canning/bottling equipment and large water supplies; switching from beer/soda/whatever to basic bottled water is easy enough. Just make a run of the appropriate labels, throw a few switches, and you're now making disaster relief supplies.

Every time there was some kind of major disaster, the local news (here in St. Louis) always had some kind of story about how A-B was doing a run of water for the disaster victims. Easy enough, costs them damn near nothing, and is good PR.

Dutch brewery Bavaria actually sells bottled water. Without passing it off as beer, I mean.

Is this the thread where people who will drink anything with the letters B-E-E-R on the can condemn others as snobs for daring to not like their swill?

The Banquet Beer


I never had it until I won a 12-pack from a radio call-in in college. It was so much better than Coors Light, and so we entered it into regular band-rehearsal rotation. We classed it up, though, called it merely: Banquette, just like calling High Life Champagne.

Ahhh the good, old days of tight beer budgets and loose livers.

There are 2 sides to every beer isle folks: the good half and the I can't afford good beer half. Those that prefer the latter are either kidding themselves to feel better about drinking sub-par beer or they simply refuse to aquire a taste for good beer because they know they can't afford it.

You know, between Miller, Budweiser, and Coors I'll take a Coors. However my new favorite brewing company is Central Waters. It's yumm-a-licious

Anyone can afford to buy good beer if they buy it to enjoy instead of buying it to get drunk. You don't sit down to a six-pack if you're drinking it to enjoy, you sit down to one or two.

My wife brought me home some of their IPA from Wisconsin last week. Had the Mudpuppy Porter when I visted in May...one of the best beers I've ever had.

I dunno, there was a dude in the last beer snob thread (Business tab, yesterday) that complained that a 4-pack of DFH 120 IPA would barely give him a good buzz. What the Faulk? That stuff knocks everyone I know on their ass, as well it should. Just switch to pounding everclear already!

This. Exactly.

If the end goal of drinking beer is to get blasted by swilling one after another, then any cheap shiat will do. The beer is only serving as an alcohol delivery system. You don't give a shiat about the taste or lack thereof- it doesn't matter that it smells like goat piss, because you won't notice as you guzzle the swill.

If the end goal of drinking beer is to enjoy a good beverage, you won't be chugging one after the other as fast as you can. You'll tend to nurse them longer, sipping the beer, not taking big swallows. You don't care if it takes you 20-30 minutes to finish it because you're enjoying it.

Joe Six Pack is drinking whatever he can buy cheaply and in volume because he just wants to get drunk.
