Which Voltron, though? The lions? Because the lions were awesome. A beer lion Voltron would be amazing. If we're talking the spaceships, though, well, that would be stupid and terrible.

Voltron of beer?!?

outstanding +1
 
2013-04-12 01:18:16 PM  
Now I kind of want to get a bunch of different colored beer cans and make Beer Voltron out of them. Looks like I've got some variety packs to fill.

Hey fark you... I like Negra Modelo when I'm already drunk.

And no, I don't want a goddamn lime.

Being stuck in SoCal, I end up drinking alot of Negra. Hopefully they won't fark it up too badly, but I don't hold out too much hope.

With all the dead Mexicans in their vats, I'd say a lime is the least of your worries.

If you need to mask the taste of semen after a marathon cocksucking session, it does okay.

It won't be after it's owned and brewed by the people that bring you Budweiser.

Came here to say this. Although I am worried about what might happen to Negra Modelo under such ownership.

Several years ago my sister told me about going to Mexico on business. According to her, when a coworker ordered a Corona, the waiter looked so disgusted that for a second she thought he was going to whip it out right then and there and piss into the coworker's glass. Then she ordered a Negra Modelo, and the waiter was positively fawning on her.
 
2013-04-12 01:53:51 PM  
Pfft, all you schlubs and your crap beer.

The only beer I drink is brewed by the genetic clone of Ben Franklin that I keep locked in my basement, and then poured over the breasts of perfect 10 covermodels into my waiting mouth.

/I will drink most types of beer
//greatly enjoy quality craft beer but sometimes I just want something like and refreshing that gives me a buzz while I do yard work
///modelo is tasty IMO, I hope InBev doesn't mess with it

So thaaaaaat's what adds that extra flavor. I was wondering why I have to run the beer through a colander to get all those weird floaties out.

I don't throw out the floaties. I add them to my chicken stock. I hate being wasteful.
 
2013-04-12 01:56:34 PM  
I truly do not understand why these people feel the need to just keep acquiring other companies and eating up the market share.  Do they not make enough money?  Do they not have enough power and influence?  Where does it end other than a guillotine, eventually?
 
2013-04-12 01:56:46 PM  
Actualy Negro Modelo is a really great beer...

You are correct, hell come to think of it, there are many great craft breweries in Cali.

Firestone Walker
Lagunitas
Stone Brewing
Ballast Point
Sierra Nevada
and so on.....

What the hell do you want with Negra?

H31N0US: I enjoy Negro Modelo.


Yeah this. It's a good hot-day lager. Amber, whatever. As Mexican beers go, it's great. Compared to Bud, it's liquid poontang.
 
2013-04-12 01:59:20 PM  
They should buy Grupo Bimbo while they're at it.

This.

Also, Dr. Pepper/ Snapple.

Why didn't I buy? Because I'm stupid, stupid, stupidity stupidity. Plus poor.
 
2013-04-12 01:59:27 PM  
I, as well, am very fond of Negra Modelo. It once was (and may still be) the only traditional 'Vienna lager' commercially brewed in the WORLD. If InBev screw it up, I may well go on a rampage.
