Even Bud Knows American Beer Sucks

Doesn't this say it all:

Anheuser-Busch Companies, Inc. Bud Select Budweiser Select - Budweiser Select is “a new kind of beer” brewedfor a crisp taste that finishes clean. Budweiser Select was developed using ...

I mean, if Budweiser were any good to begin with, would there even be a need for Bud Select? No!

Can you imagine "Guinness Select"? Bass Select? No, of course not. Because those beers are already good!

America rules in tech. But, boy, does it blow when it comes to beer.


PS. Ooooh, do I have a great New Music Friday concept for tomorrow! Stay "tuned", baby!

Follow the links for the limited edition beers.

If you value quality over quantity, then this is what you're looking for.

And they're from Delaware, no less!

If you think Americans don't do good beer you need to visit Portland, Oregon. I can think of several outstanding beers... I'm thinking Full Sail for instance. Its a big brewery issue not an American brewery issue. Bud sucks but do does Heineken.

Look harder! There are great beers all around, no matter what you like. Harpoon, Magic Hat in new england .. another poster mentioned Dogfish Head, which can be very good. Rogue Ales... Sierra Nevada... Anchor... Brooklyn Brewery.

The problem is, the single greatest factor in the quality of most beer is freshness and quality of transportation/storage. That's why brew pubs that make their own are usually so good.

Buffett seems to think BUD is a good value play, but I just can't get excited about a company whose main product tastes like yak sweat.

Which makes Diageo, with Guinness, seem a lot more appealing. . . .

So if you don't like the #1 selling beers in THE WORLD what exactly do you drink? I am guessing a self proclaimed sophisticated New York guy like yourself likes a Martini. Something cute.

Maybe your boyfriend likes beer?
