Eh, I will still have a Grain Belt Premium, pretty jingoistic beer for the upper Midwest.

Patriotism is what breweries use to market their beer when it's not a good enough product to consume on its own merits.

That's not true at all.

If you're drinking beer in tribute to this country, might I suggest Yuengling? America's oldest brewery, classic "immigrant does good" American dream story.

If you can't get Yuengling, drink something made locally, in small batches. Avoid industribeer.

Maybe. Does it have a "born on date" on the can? I only drink beers if I am aware of when they were born. It's important to me as a beer consumer.

It will be relegated to second place once I come out with my "John Wilkes Booth Stout."

I live in Baltimore, so the stuff in TFA is local. Union's been churning out some good brew. Big fan of the Balt Alt and Blackwing Lager.

I make my beer producers provide a long form birth certificate with every purchase.

Yep - should've clarified that I wasn't necessarily calling the beer in the article "industribeer." And, be careful of "astroturf breweries", locations that adopt craft beer labels and advertising styles, but are, in fact, brands made by the industrial brewers. These asshats have been popping up for some time now, and industrial brewers use these labels to aggressively push for more shelf space.

Or, do the most American thing of all - brew it yourself. It's what our Founding Fathers did, it's easy to do, and it's worth the time & effort.
