I'm tired of Budweiser's crazy foreign beer antics.

This is AMERICA dammit.

I don't need a beer can to show me how cold it is.

How much money do these innovations to the can that supposedly improve the beer drinking experience cost?  How much in R&D was spent on development?  That stuff isn't free, it makes the shiatty beer in the can cost more.

Shame that they can't challenge each other to make a better beer.

You know I was going to go down to Fat Head's to try their Oktoberfest, but that can just looks so refreshing!

I like Budweiser Black.It's no way I'm buying real beer for 15-20 people at a party, so they will get Bud or MGD.

That can had better be refreshing. I'd rather eat the can than drink what's inside of it.

So it's agreed.  We don't like to drink refreshing cans, we like to drink refreshing beer.

I'm strictly a glass bottle beer guy. I am in no way any kind of snob, but I drank a Busch Light in a can a couple days ago and it tasted like aluminum-tinged river water.

They focus on how the can is awesome and new, but the beer inside still sucks.

After drinking craft brews for six months I'm stunned how awful commodity beer tastes. They all taste the same, plain watered down crap.

How about spending some of that R&D money making decent beer?

/nevermind. I'll stick with microbrew IPAs

Oh, they could make a decent beer if they wanted to.

They just don't want to.

They totally have the technology and brewing know how. That's just not how they see the world. They make what they make very intentionally.

Btw, why the heck are all the Octoberfest beers out already?!?

Dead for Tax Reasons: note to both:  nothing you say in your ads is going to make me want to drink your product.  desperation or someone giving it to me are the only way


Someone is drinking the stuff. In fact, lots of someones. I know it's fun to bag on the big beer makers, but the advertising clearly works. I will say, though, that like you, it never worked on me. I was a Yuengling guy my entire drinking career, mainly because that's what is big in Central Pennsylvania where I live.

Given the whole "hipster" craft brew movement, how long will it be until the whole thing collapses and it becomes the cool thing to drink Bud again? It's inevitable, and won't it be weird when the hipsters embrace the best-selling beers in America and act like they only do it because it isn't cool? It'll be like dividing by zero.

No beer company should be claiming that their product is refreshing. Alcohol is not refreshing, it causes dehydration. Even the fizzy yellow water does have a diuretic effect.

The craft beer movement isn't about hipsters, it's about realizing that there's better out there. It's like juice. Budweiser, MIller, Yuengling, those are like that weird fake orange drink that sort of tastes like watered down Sunny D. Then you try Sam Adams, and that's like real Sunny D. At first it's too much, since all you know is that fake crap. Soon though, you like it. Then you try real orange juice. And there's grape juice and apple juice too? Now there's no going back. It doesn't matter what's cool, you know how good real juice is now.

Which is ridiculous because everybody knows Kristen Bell has the world's most refreshing can.www.hollywoodtuna.com

No idea but I love it. Always liked Obtokerfest and winter beers more than spring and summer beers.

But yeah you are right. Budweiser and co are far superior at brewing beer. They are brewing a beer than should be the same across the entire globe in different climates, regions, and altitudes. That takes dedication, talent, logistics, and skill. I was disappointed when they discontinued American Ale, but life goes on.

It does annoy me when people disparage Budweiser or Miller or Coors for the sake of doing it though. It's booze. Shut your yapper and drink it, or don't if you hate it.

Without checking I'd wager they're among the top selling beers in the world, certainly in America. Millions of people drink this piss. What could the brewers possibly gain by "improving" it?

If people are willing to pay good cash for watery swill and can be satisfied with stupid can gimmicks, give them what they want  and enjoy bathing in their money.

Oktoberfest starts in September, so they ship out early ( those not already available year round by smart breweries for 9.99 tax crv usually ) so folks can stock up . Beer is a commodity. by state law, the distro has to publish an official notice for a sale to its customers. They just got a huge shipment and pushed it to retailers to get it out of the warehouse , now! Its how it works. Id change that .

Haven't you gotten the memo? In 2013 cans are now for snobs.
