I was going to call bullshiat when I was reading the brands, but I suspect a lot of sales of the "low end" stuff is moving to regionals that are usually cheaper because they don't have the overhead of national advertising. That and people are tired of drinking pisswater.

I thinnk the overall decline can be linked to the increase in heroin use.

I guess they're right. I drink cheap beer and I haven't had any of those for years.

I remember Michelob as a good enough beer in a funky bottle.  If I am remembering correctly, they also had bowling pin shaped bottles available at the bowling alley - but drinking during bowling class was frowned upon, so we waited.  Athletic credit!

I think Budweiser had a bowling pin beer bottle, too, but I don't know if I ever actually saw one.

article headline:  Nine beers many Americans no longer drink

FTA:

8. Budweiser
> Sales loss (2007-2012): 28.8%
> Brewer: Anheuser-Busch Inbev
> Barrels sold (2012): 16,800,000
The self-proclaimed "king of beers," Budweiser's lager was originally sold in 1876 as the first brand available all across the country. For years, Budweiser was the most popular beer in the country, until Bud Light took its place in the early 2000s. Bud is now third-most popular behind Coors Light as well.


so, if you're keeping score: the third most popular beer in america is a beer "many americans no longer drink."

Don't listen to 'em anymore, either

/not since the ZImmerman trial ended, anyway

That's true about Mich Light. I remember bartending when that would sell right behind the Budweisers and Millers. I can't remember the last time someone ordered one from me nowadays.
 
2013-12-09 02:21:20 PM
I was hoping for a list of now defunct brands. Like Ballantine.
 
2013-12-09 02:29:05 PM
I don't see Meister Brau on that list, so we're okay.
 
2013-12-09 02:29:49 PM
Wow, InBev got quite the sweet deal in buying Anheuser Busch
 
2013-12-09 02:30:02 PM
Sweet!  I didn't make the list.

Yeah Mich light has went nearly tits up since mich ultra came out.

Decline in adjunct lagers has no affect on me.  Or if there is one, it's largely positive.

I remember drinking Milwaukee's Worst in high school.  I recall it being pretty awful and so no tears being shed here.

America's #3 beer is 8th on a list of beers "many Americans no longer drink".

WTF.

Nearly a thirty percent loss over a five year period, so yes, many americans no longer drink that particular beer.

I like IPA's when I'm slow drinking a 6 pack. If I'm having a marathon guitar session or MST3k day, I'll buy a cheap 12 pack of Bud or even Busch.

I like cheap and expensive alike.

Now I'm thirsty.

I just can't believe Coors is more popular than Bud.  Coors sucks ass.  It's like dehydrated donkey piss crystals, all put in a teabag, an steeped in hot steaming piss.

//not that Budweiser's much better, but still

Wiedemann's (sp?) went under about 6 months after my severe alcoholic uncle died. He bought quart singles that was like 79 cents at the pilot he would fill up a 55 gallon drum a week with his empties.

There are only 2 beers I would say no to. Coors light being the first.

how such a crap drink became so popular is beyond me.

Wiedemann's! Wiedemann's Beer!
Satisfies a thirst monumental and sincere!

Even when I was just a little kid, that jingle struck me as preposterous and overblown.

Some Bass Playing Guy: I was hoping for a list of now defunct brands. Like Ballantine.


Is shiatz still around? I remember as a kid, my dad had gotten a promotional winter-hat that had a shiatz patch on the front.  I wore that thing all the time.

Confabulat: That's true about Mich Light. I remember bartending when that would sell right behind the Budweisers and Millers. I can't remember the last time someone ordered one from me nowadays.


True Fact: the first time I ever got completely shiat-faced drunk on beer, it was Mich Light.

Back in 1980 or so. Good times...
 
2013-12-09 02:46:36 PM
Do they still make "Rolling Rock?"  That used to do, in a pinch.  We called it, "Rocking and Roll."
 
2013-12-09 02:46:37 PM
I think the article kinda gives the cause a glancing blow. It's not that the beer sucks any more than it ever did, its that I drink liquor now. The beer is just a chaser to me.
 
2013-12-09 02:46:53 PM
When I am out drinking beer, it sure as fark isn't to drink Budweiser, Coors, or Miller.

-Karbach
-Shiner
-St. Arnold's
-Blue Moon
-Santos
-Breckenridge Vanilla Porter
-Bass
-Negro Modelo

That doesn't even include the good shiat that I drink at home. The only circumstance I would ever consider Bud, Miller, or Coors is a sporting event where they only have crappy beer.

AB saw this and bought up some micro brewery beers and ciders, they also cut costs. They still own or distribute much of what is out there. So their sales of some labels are down but profits are still up.

/drink craft beer too

My dad drank Ballantine beer in the quart bottle. Two a night when he got home from work.
 
2013-12-09 02:50:42 PM
Michelob and Michelob llight are the most disgusting beers I have ever had.
Since I don't drink often these days, when I do I tend to be a beer snop and stick to crafts, however I can still drink everything on the list except Michelob.

Well if I was gonna steal booze from an of age adult's fridge as an underage kid my options was that wiedemann drinking uncle that lived like a block down the road and dad who drank Busch lite. My options sucked.

I dont care for Bud lite because it tastes to similar to Busch lite.

Mich/Mich lite are just Bud/Bud lite without the rice in the grain mix, add some corn and its Busch/Busch lite.
