American pisswater.
I spent a week in Germany once and now I'm oh so very knowledgeable.
[beer brand] isn't really that bad on a hot day after mowing the lawn.

Not true, I spent two weeks in Austria and know just as little as when I went in

My municipal water supply is not 4.2% ABV.

/I wish it were.

Light beer isn't light when you need 10 to get messed up.
 
2014-07-10 01:10:31 PM  
I remember a friend calculating his intake of alcohol versus calories. "Blue Light is 4% and regular Blue is 5%, but Blue Light is two-thirds the calories of Blue, so if I drink five Lights, it's the equivalent of four regular beers, but two-thirds the calories!"

Yeah, he was over 300 pounds.

This is the first time I've ever seen the 'done-in-one' thing used appropriately.

Kudos

Where I lived a couple of years ago, city water was out of the Ohio River. 4.2% ABV would be a HUGE improvement.

When someone thinks of diet as a simple "calories in, calories out" sort of system, I always think of this:

You forgot all the people whining about IPAs and how they're ruining craft beer and that's all they can find at breweries and liquor stores.
 
2014-07-10 03:15:17 PM  
All thanks to craft breweries like Stone.  And craft beer isn't going away anytime soon.

Had this over the holiday.  Wowzers this was awesome:

This was a cinnamon bomb.  The cinnamon is just out of control on this one.

This guy did all the math for us.

If demand is down then prices should go down, right?  That would make this Bud Light drinker happy.

Except I think there is so much competition they are as low as they can be.  I think it means in this case companies go out of business.

I bet that was fun to research.

Wait, wait...

The headline talks of BEER sales. Why would Bud Light drinkers care?

Well, let's see how many of those I can hit.

I like craft beers, but discovered that in order to have a couple of brews on an evening while out working on the car, or after an afternoon of yard work I needed something that isn't 12%ABV. I happen to like beer, and a small amount of alcohol is relaxing. Discovering that a 6 pack of Coors, Miller High Life or MGD at the grocery store (a recent development in my area) costs a third of what my favorite craft costs for a 750ml was wonderful.
So now I drink cheap beer. Ur isn't quite as good, but I don't have to stop working on the car after half a glass.
