The problem here, is that Coors beer, that's uh, that's weak pisswater.
 
2014-07-21 12:51:17 PM  
"We have a lot of bar owners who are enamored with craft beers," Coors told the Post. "They are beginning to take off premium light handles and putting bottles behind the bar instead and replacing the handles with craft beer handles. We lose 50% of our volume when that happens."

While domestic light beer sales continue to drop, the more expensive craft beer market continues to grow at 7%, which baffles Coors.

"In this economy, that is difficult to understand. But people are staying home now, not buying cars or houses. They have money to spend. They want to spend it on something that they think has more value...you talk about millennials. The world is very different."


Yeah, he still doesn't get it. Notice that he does not mention the word "taste." As in, "our beer tastes like shiat, so that's why we advocate people drink it as cold as possible, so the cold numbs your tongue."

Frankly, all they have to do is find a good craft brew label, buy it, and mass produce it, and BOOM, market share. See also Goose Island, Shock Top, Blue Moon, etc.

Heh.

That's actually on point:  I've started introducing my neighbors to the wonders of locally made craft beers.  My neighbors wife was like "You've ruined him, used to be I could buy him some Miller Lite and he'd be happy.  Now he wants these fancy artisanal beers".

That made me happy inside.

Truth is, the US beer industry took decades to get over the damage done by Prohibition.  Once brewing was allowed again, only the mega-breweries had survived, and they cranked out indistinguishable pisswater that people drank largely because they didn't have any choice.

Today, however, I'll put American beer up against any beer in the World.  In fact, because we aren't stuck with hundreds of years of cultural memory, we're free to try stuff that wouldn't fly in Germany or Ireland or the UK.

Competition confuses him? Whuddathunkit?

America had a vibrant beer culture before Prohibition, and once it came down, the first brewers to hit the market flooded it with cheap and low quality product, but it was beer, and it got to market fast. We are only now beginning to recapture that vibrant brewing culture again, and it is eating into "traditional" markets where folks haven't been used to competition for generations now.

I hated beer when I was a kid. It was what my father drank, and it was nasty. It wasn't until we got to Germany that I developed a taste for the stuff, and part of that was my father discovering German beers. Suddenly, there was a profusion of brews in the house, and we sampled the new stuff like kids in a candy shop. My father lost his taste for the American stuff fast, and yeah, Germany ruined him for PBR and Budweiser and Coors.

Now then, folks can either embrace this new brew culture, and take advantage of it by diversifying and trying out new stuff, and using their vast facilities and distro networks to their advantage, or they can keep making the same crappy product, and watch as folks turn from them. The big domestic brewers are going to have to either do this, and compete, or they can just watch with sad faces as their market share drops.
Which this article pretty much shows that Coors is going to make a sad face with a trombone farting in the background...

I don't get the hate for American lagers.  It's a legitimate style, and Coors does it very well.  So does Budweiser.  If you don't like that style, that's fine - I don't usually, either.  I prefer big, fat, malty ales.  But I have to say, when I'm eating sushi, a rice-based lighter style beer like Budweiser is pretty nice.   Post-lawn-mowing, an ice-cold Molson Canadian goes down well.

I will always have a fond place in my heart for Coors because my best friend's father always managed to keep a basement bar fridge fully stocked with it despite the fact that we drank it like the water it nearly was.

Free beer is a wonderful thing.

I have a new neighbor just moved in a couple of weeks ago.  He brought his tractor over to help me move something heavy and when we were done I asked if he likes beer.  "Oh, hell yeah!"  OK, BRB.  Ran inside and grabbed him a 6-pack of Boulevard Zon.  He was intrigued and told me that he really likes  the Chimay beer.

His love of good beer and willingness to work with me to build a good fence along the property line made me want to kiss him.

That is kind of a worn out argument, as the hop invasion peaked long ago.  Sure, there are a bunch out there, but craft brewers have been drifting into so many other styles lately, it's honestly hard to keep up.

I don't disagree with your lager argument, in regards to it being palatable, but I'd sure as hell rather drink a Great Lakes Brewing Co. Dortmunder Gold than a frickin' Coors.

You really don't get the hate? It's been shoved down our throats since the 1930's. Bud/Miller/Coors work very hard to this day to keep shoving it down our throats. They work hard to get distributors to keep good beers off the shelves. Despite all of this, non-light lagers are still gaining market share.

The style itself is fine, if that's your thing. The industry behind it is not.

Most people still prefer light beer.  And when I'm out mowing the grass, I do too.  The rest of the time, yeah, I want something with flavor, which is why I home brew now.  80% of the craft beer at the local liquor store is pale ale/IPA.  Most of the rest are stouts.  And I do like a good pale ale, but what's got my attention these days is a medium bodied, barrel aged, dark brown ale.  That's very rare and very expensive at the store.

My problem with the hop invasion is that many restaurants haven't gotten your memo yet. You go to a new restaurant with a sleek bar that *doesn't* just serve light American lagers, and 90% of the time 5 of their 6 taps are an IPA with one belgian-style wheat ale thrown in. Once they get the memo that "good beer list" and "All IPAs!" aren't synonyms, I'll be much happier.

A lot of craft beer isn't very good, but very few craft beers are as bad as Coors.

Given the choice between funny tasting water and some moron with a Mr. Beer Kit and 5,000 tons of hops, I'll suffer the Coors any day, though.

Also, what the hell is the deal with all the coffee-flavored stouts and ales lately? I remember when that was just a joke on the Drew Carey show.

The article is odd because MillerCoors has owned the Blue Moon brand for several years. I thought they already recognized that they needed to diversify to protect their market share. For a mass produced beer, Blue Moon is pretty decent.

I thought Coors has done a much better job tapping into the "craft" market than Bud. Shock Top is ok, but there is still an underlying "cheap" beer flavor that comes through. Bud's American Ale and Black Crown were horrible.

Wow, I didn't know that. Imagine that: a big government liberal ending a useless regulation. Thank god he was stopped before he legalized marijuana or adopted the metric system.

Anyway, I've noticed a trend towards canning craft beers lately, which I am wholly in support of. They are lighter, they let less light in, and keep the beer fresher. They are easier to open and I don't have a cap to dispose of, and they don't smash into pieces of broken glass if you drop them by the pool.

I'm camping this weekend and my cooler will feature assorted crafts: some wheat, some IPA, some lagers, and some Bud and Miller Lite. I will enjoy them all equally.

Lots of place in the city price similar to this. They'll typically have a two-tier system of "domestics" for something like 5-6 a pint, and then "craft/import" for 7-9 a pull. Their might be more variation in bottle pricing, but they tend to price the drafts on tiers.

1. Pete Coors is probably confused by door handles.  By all accounts he's not a spectacularly bright specimen.

2. I'll admit up front I'm a bit of a beer snob. That said, of all the major American megabreweries, I truly think the Coors/Coors Light labels are the absolute worst.  Tastes like tap water and fermented sweat.

Thank god craft breweries are opening up all around me.  Funky Buddha is 5 minutes from my condo.  I took a road trip to Tequesta, Due South, and Saltwater a couple weekends ago, and next weekend I am taking another trip to the new places south of here.  It is a great time to be a beer lover in the U.S.

here, as exmaple

2014-07-21 03:44:40 PM  
There is a bar across from the Coors plant that sells beer that is probably 1 or 2 days old.  In that bar, Coors actually tastes like a decent beer.

The problem is that it doesn't have any preservatives in it and has to be shipped, stored, sold, and kept cold.  If you go to your local convenience store and it is sitting out on the floor it has gotten warm and is now skanky beer.

Came in here to say this.  Crappy beers are barely cheaper than craft beers at the bar.  What's funnier is they charge higher premium prices for "imported" beer like Stella and Heineken which are far crappier than Coors.

Colorado isn't depressed and Pete is confused by life.  Colorado has 100s of craft breweries, they didn't all just open up.

And no, I don't have to drink the same beer as my friends, geez.

Lando Lincoln: max_pooper: Lando Lincoln: max_pooper: JolobinSmokin: Nothing better than an ice cold coors light, while floating on the lake in your boat.

Actually there is: drinking an ice cold coors light, while floating on the lake in your buddy's boat.

Drinking a nice fresh kolsch beer while floating on the lake in your buddy's boat is better.

Naw, I prefer the crispness of a lager over an ale for boating activities.

Ales can't be crisp? News to me.



I never said that but you question shows you ignorance. You should read up on ester production by ale yeasts.

Ow! That was my feelings!: And no, I don't have to drink the same beer as my friends, geez.


I didn't say you did, but I know people who drink craft beers when out with craft drinkers when I know perfectly well they'd rather get the whatever light.
