Budweiser?- Oh the humanity!

Meanwhile, the brewers at Moosehead are laughing uncontrollably.

I wonder if it would be possible to retrieve it mid air by a skydiver or maybe an ultra lite.

Canada's full of bad beer, subby.

Labatt's, Molson, etc. For fark's sake, they even make frikkin' Foster's in Canada. Your Big Ass Can of shiatty Aussie beer is made in Toronto.

So, we've got the beer trifecta in play then, yeah?

Elsinore Brewery continues to make a top notch product, though.

Amazing CNN hasn't put a couple of dorks in a blimp simulator for hours of non-news.

tfa does not say where the blimp escaped from..  my guess is that it was tethered in montreal for the habs series??

It's the same old story. Boy finds girl, boy loses girl, girl finds boy, boy forgets girl, boy remembers girl, girls dies in a tragic blimp accident over the Orange Bowl on New Year's Day.

Labatt's and Molson are perfectly fine second beers to have, still better than most American stuff by far.

Also, I think if you get it closer to the border, it's fresher, seriously. I once heard Stephen Colbert claim that Molson's was skunky, which is clearly a shipping problem.

Growing up in Buffalo, I certainly preferred to wash down my wings with Molson Golden instead of Genny Cream Ale.

How symbolic! A yank-beer emblazoned bag of hot air so light that it floats away - uncontrollably - much like the farts the swill creates.

That's all well and good subby but all I really want to know is, "What size are the manatees?"

It's funny how Bud is trying really hard to market itself as the beer for Canadian hockey fans.

A couple of months ago they went on FB and asked people to comment on how Bud figured in their hockey night celebrations, or something to this effect (I forget the exact wording). They took it down fairly quickly when all the comments basically said "we don't celebrate with your sh*at, go away"

Except the makers of Bud now own Molson's, so it's all the same garbage now.  Which is a crying shame.

S/he said "most".  In my experience, the worst Canadian beer is still better than the best mass-produced stuff in the States, with the exception of Shiner Bock.  Shiner Bock is as good as Molson Canadian.

Craft brews (real ones, not mass-produced "craft brews" like Blue Moon) are better in Canada, too - but not necessarily better than everything from the States.  I do miss my Rogue Hazelnut terribly.

The report says the blimp was travelling northeast at approximately 11 km/h and is expected to descend somewhere over Sussex, N.B.

It's not clear when the blimp will come back down to earth.


Editor: Jensen! Did you and Williams finish that story on the blimp?
Jensen: Yes sir. It's in your queue, sir!
Editor: Did you spell check and proofread it?
Jensen: Why of course, sir! Both Williams and I went over that story with a fine toothed comb.
Editor: Good. One more slip up and this whole industry could come crashing down.
Jensen: Yeah! Back to Flappy Bird!

No, they don't. You have them confused with Coors, but it's an easy mistake to make. All shiatty beer is the same.

Is Foster's really considered an Aussie beer when they don't even sell it down there?

FTA: A two storey, 21-metre-long Budweiser blimp in the shape of a hockey goal light is loose after breaking from its tether at a Saint John ball hockey tournament Saturday afternoon.

So I'm guessing any Coors blimp would be in the shape of a canoe?

If you're gonna go there, Shiner Bock sucks ass. They use adjuncts.
There are 4-5 new craft breweries in Austin alone that make Shiner taste like swill.

Does Defcon 5 in Canada involve maple syrup and Poutine?

If a beer is made with rice, it MUST be referred to as "shiat", "crap", "swill", "garbage", and/or "American"

Whoops; you're right.  I was thinking Labatts.  Either way, they've both sold out and bottomed out.  No one drinks it anymore.
