Insipid, over-rated, over-hyped crap that's a waste of your time and money. Indulging in too much makes you say and do stupid things and may ultimately harm your health.

Sam Adams, on the other hand, is great.

seeing as the "creator" mentioned in the declaration isn't specifically christian - and that this highlights the founders' shall we say 'enlightened' views of religion - i would suggest that they STFU about it if they know what's good for them.

OK Fox, i have put up with you pandering to the racists, homophobes and islamaphobes while sucking the tit of the mighty 1% and selling their regurgitated milk to your moronic viewers as 'fair and balanced', but now you've attacked a decent beer company. And that is my line in the sand! This will not stand, ya know, this aggression will not stand, man.

I used to love the Oktoberfest.  years ago, it tasted different. a bit off. Last year, it was awful. I managed to drink 2 bottles.
I didnt order any more and nobody was asking for it, which is okay, I sold Spaten Hoffbrau Munchen and Paulaner Oktoberfests instead.
I used to look forward to Sams fall and winter stuff. No more. Aint got no shelf space for crap that wont sell

Don't know.  Wouldn't surprise me.  I mean, every person at FOX (and all the other right-wing pundits) stood to lose a ton of money if they didn't have 4 more years of frothing at the mouth over everything Obama does.   There's still more money to fleece from the idiots that watch/listen to that sh*t.

2013-07-05 07:45:39 PM  
I get so tired of these cases of manufactured outrage because the same clowns could and would get outraged at the opposite situation.

Usually the point is to direct hate at what their audience considers a hateful target. E.g. Obama should be despised because he did/didn't have a US flag next to him.

Are Fox viewers supposed to despise Sam Adams as a symbol of elitist Boston liberalism while anti-enlightenment true Americans are proud to drink Bud Lite?

Obama also leaves the creator part out when citing the Declaration of Independence. That's the real reason their knickers are in a twist.

They strongly imply that, but they also say, "We would not have met if it weren't for ChristianMingle." If you take God out of the equation, yeah, that statement is most likely true. But if you  do believe in God, then what they're saying is that God won't let you meet the mate He picked for you unless you send the site money. That line turns the site from helping you realize God's plan for you to an obligatory step you must take or else remain spiritually unfulfilled.

You read my mind, you mind reader! Was just thinking about that deliciously spicy brew but couldn't remember the name. Sam Adams should definitely sell sixers of that stuff. It's worth stocking up on.
