Bud Light Platinum would last 2 minutes in PDX. Even hipsters can stand that swill. PBR is as bad as we can stomach.

If it tastes like bud lite, I won't be drinking it. I'm guessing old taste, new label/bottle, new (higher) price.

There's plenty of people on the SE side past 82nd who will drink it.

It's 6% ABV, so Bud Light Platinum is stronger than regular Bud. Weird.

Having 8 fewer Calories makes it "light".  You could shave off the same number of Calories by not drinking the last sip of warm Bud heavy.

Yeah... You're right or prostitute themselves for.

The only time I've seen someone buy Bud Light Platinum at the liquor store, it was being purchased by the trashiest white trash motherfarker I've ever seen.  Therefore I choose to assume that is what the demographic is that drinks Bud Light Platinum.

Bud Light Platinum
A step up from Bud Light
It's like a bad genetic mutation
in the evolution of beer

Not even JT can make bud light cool.  Nothing can make bud light cool. It's for people who can't afford better beer. Period.  If you could afford better beer, you wouldn't be drinking bud light.  I challenge anyone to contradict me on that.

I will, in a sense. Bud Light is usually not the cheapest beer on the shelf, and people still choose it. There are better beers that are more expensive than Bud Light, but there are also better beers that are cheaper than Bud Light. This leads me to believe that people who drink Bud Light just have shiatty taste.

I know plenty of people who prefer bud light and could afford better. I don't understand it, but it definitely exists.

JT is awesome, but that sh*t sucks.

It reminds me of the difference between natty and natty ice.

Wasn't he going to bring back MySpace?

I buy Bud Light as a fantastic cookout beer. Not many of my family enjoy my taste in "weird beers" (their words), so I get Bud Light for cookouts. It's cheap, it's beer, and it goes decent enough with hotdogs.

I brought some NY brewery beers to Ohio for my uncle, as he drinks ass tons of beer. He looked at me like I was some communist hippie from Mars and explained he STRICTLY drinks Bud Light because it's the best. Wasn't even interested in trying them.

Hey, with all their money going to tweak, who's got anything left over for beer?

But it's fizzy as hell and tastes like shiat. I'll stick with my heavies.

That video doesn't seem to target "hipsters" at all.

I know the term "hipster" has no meaning anymore (why would Budweiser use JT to get hipster cred? It's not like he is some hipster icon), but almost all of the hipsters around here (the eastern hipster capital) that aren't in school seem to work.

I do the same with my father-in-law. He'll say "I'll have whatever you are having". So I'd get him a porter or something.  He looks at it funny, takes two sips, sets the glass down and never touches it again.

He drinks Milwaukee's Best like water. So I grab a sixer of that whenever he visits.

There's a time and a place for both kinds of beer.  High end beers are for enjoying, low end beers are for when you are going to drink till you cant stand up.  Why waste the good stuff on a bender?

Being a Hasher, I gravitate towards cheap beers for pre-lubing (good beers are for when I can enjoy them).  It's a bit sweeter than other light beers, but the 6% sure helps.  It's only $5 for a six-pack at Total Wine.
On On!

Bud light tastes like carbonated tap water. Not a beer snob but man how do people drink that shiat as their beer of choice?
