I homebrew because for a few cents of added ingredients--orange peel, oatmeal, etc--I can make a beer that I can't afford and can't find fresh if I could afford it.

Do you know how I know you have no taste?  That stuff sucks balls just like their Berry Weiss.  Now, had you mentioned the Fireside Nut Brown or the Snowdrift I might have thought you knew something about beer.

/Also, Leinie's isn't craft.

sharpie_69: Why is this bad/sad?   There is no such thing as bad beer, only beer you happen to not like.


I'm not a beer snob by any means but, son, you shouldn't make that statement until you've tried this

Honestly, it's not a question of whether someone likes Cave Creek Chili beer. It's a question of whether anyone likes it. And I've never met or heard of a single person who does.

But YMMV.

There's no accounting for taste. I for example have had mac-n-cheese maybe three times in my life. Not horrible, but I don't consider it to be actual 'food'. Light beer? Not horrible, but not 'beer'...the exception would be Mich. Ultra which was truly revolting; I would have washed that out of my mouth with Zima if I had to.

That said, I am bit of a card carrying beer fascist. Thus it surprised me that I didn't out right hate Budweiser American Ale. As a general rule I like ales, but I didn't think it possible I could like anything with Budweiser on the label. Weirdly enough, it tasted like 'beer'. Not on my top 10 list maybe, but probably more available than the really good ones.

Ever notice how so many Mexicans drink Budweiser? It's because it's the premium import in Mexico. Like Corona is in the US. People in Mexico look at Corona the same way we look at Budweiser. And they both sell lots of their product.

Also the bud light with clamato thing pre-dates Busch introducing the Chilada (or however it's spelled). Mexicans love that stuff as a sorta of bloody mary type drink. Sometimes with a hit of tabasco in it too. I've had a "red beer" on occasion and they're not too bad. On occasion is enough for me though.

Americans aren't any better either. We have the redneck mimosa. Miller light and Sunny D. Surprisingly refreshing when you're out camping in a hot climate, not something I'd choose at home.

I like craft brews but I can also be found with Bud Light, Coors Light or Tecate in my fridge. $16.99 for a 30 pack vs $12.99 for a 12 pack. Yeah, I think I'll take those savings and splurge on a better quality whiskey.

As a final anecdote, within my circle of friends the younger crowd seems to pretty beer snobby. They know their stuff about all these obscure mico-brews and like to remind everyone how much macro-brews suck whenever the topic comes up. "Ugh, how can anyone drink that crap?" Thing is, when we have a party they only bring a six pack of their favorite brew (if they bring anything) and I'll bring a 30 pack of Tecate. Guess what everyone has in their hands half way through the night? Yeah, macro-brews suck, except when you're out of beer.

It was a 111 degrees in Lemore California and my buddy Ricardo was bar-b-quing like crazy in his backyard. He introduced me to two things I swore I would never eat: bud lime and grilled cow udder tacos.

Guess what, I can't get enough of either of them now.

I've had it a few times. It's not something I'd drink a whole sixer of but it has its purpose. We once did a mac-n-cheese with beer pairing contest. Ours was a buffalo chicken mac-n-cheese paired with the Cave Creek Chile Beer. We won the Mac contest and nobody could guess the beer. The closest was someone said we took a Corona and put a chile in it. Which is pretty much what it is. Just don't try to eat that chile.

mr lawson: hey you farking morans..the beer is just to get you drunk...nothing more...sometimes that is all you want.


If you have that attitude about beer, then you should be drinking harder stuff than beer.

Leinie's Lemon Shandy was one of my favorite summer beers too, until I decided to make some of my own. I made a belgian wheat beer and added some lemonade concentrate to it and...now Lemon Shandy takes like drinking a beer with lemon furniture polish added to it. Every springtime, lots of my friends and family ask me, "hey, when are you going to make some more of that lemonade beer?"

In Germany they call that a Radler.  Tasty beverage!

This. If I'm just interested in getting drunk, it's far easier to pick up a bottle of cheap liqour and something to mix it with.

A friend of mine is a homebrewer(and has been gradually teaching me), and made something similar. He made a radler that was damn tasty. Only problem is it's so damn tasty it tends not to last for long, so sometimes we just pick up some Leinies instead.

Just remember, hipsters - For every niche hobby, there is always someone out there that's cooler.

That reminds me.  Maybe I wasn't looking hard enough but I didn't see Pabst Blue Ribbon on that list.  I thought for sure it would be at least somewhere in the lower half.
