Never has there been a more appropriate use of that meme/headline.

No need to worry, it's 18 miles from the Alabama border.

whew...

I happen to enjoy Bud Light very much.  Tasty!

Why would it be going northbound?  The closest brewery is in Cartersville.

Probably heading to a distributor.

Of course something of value was lost. That used to be water.

Consider it money well spent. They needed to wash the road, and club soda gets out anything.

If I'm the insurance company I'm paying out based on the actual cost of production, not on the selling price.

That way it will only cost about $1.50 to cover the loss.

Frozen concentrated lemonade and a couple tall boys of bud light make for a nice shandy for when you need to cool off without getting seriously buzzed. If there is any left when your chores are done add a little bourbon, put your feet up in the shade and dream of cool breezes.

And in the middle of moonshine country. Even the Rednecks have better things to drink than
drink Bud Lite.

Not my favorite, but a good lawn-mowing beer for the price.  Not everything needs to be a $9.99/six-pack, double hopped 8.0%ABV IPA.

Frozen OJ is still a thing?

Sounds like Sip, Strip, and Go Naked. Can of frozen concentrated lemonade, 1 light beer, can or 2 of vodka, a 1/2 can of water, and ice. Makes about a pitcher full depending on how much ice. Tastes like slightly fizzy lemonade, kicks like a mule. My mother-in-law used to make big batches of them for tailgating.

I know that when I'm working outside in the 110 degree desert heat, I don't want to drink a heavy, dark beer like a Guinness Extra Stout or a Heineken Dark.  No, you want a light, crisp refreshing beer.

I know, I know...Stop liking what I don't like.

40,000 pounds of beer. That's an odd way to measure liquid. Why not say 4,800 gallons of beer was spilled? I'm finding myself inordinately annoyed by this.

Yes I agree as we should all be using the Metric system by now...

(went to elementary school in the 70's) they said back then that we would be using metric in a few years...)

There are a lot of better lagers out there now. I agree some beers are too heavy for the heat. But, as with anything, you need to let people do what works for them

It is probably reported that way because truck manifests are measured in weight, rather than liquid.

I don't like beer generally.

But it's always fascinating how many snobs there are about something like this.


Like, if everyone hates Bud Light, why does it continue to sell like crazy?

The irony of everyone going off to demand their fav craft/dark beers is that the modern mass marketed beers were created in part because of their popularity against those types of beers.

If he's frozen he puts on gloves.

Cold blooded, perhaps... allegedly.

Its the fat girlfriend on a moped syndrome.

No one will ever admit to liking them.

It doesn't bug me what beer people drink. But if I'm out and about and want a beer it would never be my first selection. If it's being offered to me, I'll decline nicely.

/not a beer drinker

It sells because of a massive marketing/advertising budget and aggressive business practices.

These beers were not created to compete with craft beer. Bud Light was released in the early 80s when Sierra and Anchor were the only craft breweries in the country.

/I'll drink it if nothing else is available

Good use of soapy water.
