    1. We have the some of the best beer on the planet (Sierra Nevada Pale Ale anybody?), and yet it seems everyone thinks we only have the tasteless swine Budweiser.

      Not to mention the huge numbers of excellent micro-brews that grace our land.

    2. The “… tasteless swill …” not the pig “swine”.

    3. Don’t worry, we have Guinness and Carlsberg here in Europe. Crappy beers are a plague of this world.

    4. Guinness is great (had a pint the other night), but the Carlsberg is not so.

    5. Budweiser is owned by InBev, a European company. It is no longer “American.” It can be argued that it never was, since the recipe/branding comes from the Czech Republic. And $10 seems expensive when you can get a 12 of Yuengling for $8.

      I agree.

      We have a shit-ton of great micro-breweries back home in Oregon, yet most people still buy/drink this crap.

      Though they do have some pretty crap beer here in Europe, too. Less people drink it, but it exists.

    7. LOL! I drink BudLight. And befor you nerds knock it down with you beer that tastes like it was brewed with a bag of rusty nails(Bass, Newcastle,ect), do your homework. According to their website, Budlight out sells all other brands combined. So some one besides me likes it too.

    8. That’s because BudLight is lightly flavoured water.

      You’d be surprised at how many sales the “4-year-old girl” niche generates.

    9. Well, if it has to taste like dirt to be a “real beer”, then fuck it. You win. I don’t want to have to hold my nose and choke down a bottle of rusty goat piss to get drunk. Although I do like other beers occasionally (Becks, XX, ect), BudLight is my “everyday” beer.

    10. It’s been really hot lately and I’ve been working outside around the house, so I decided ‘what the hell, I’ll buy some Coors Light to drink during the hot times and later when its cooler I’ll have some Sierra Nevada or some Copperhead Ale to relax’, damn that was a mistake, it almost turned me off beer a togeather. Anybody want a half a case of Coors Light?

    11. Guinness is great.

      And Budweiser, back in the Czech Rep, is called Budvaar (sp), and actually tastes great.

      It’s a bit like the Aussies with Fosters; none of them drink the pisswater, they just export it to all the other eejits (mostly the Brits, apparently).

    12. LOL @ LukeV1-5
      @the3g_ipwn: Budweiser is for people that don’t actually like beer. Go get some wine coolers and drop the ruse, cause we know your game.
      Though American Beer is atrocious. I’m blessed as a Canadian to live in a Nation of Fine Beer connoisseur’s.

      I have just two words for you: Molsen Ice.

      Now that’s some terrible shit there. Broke me from ever trying another Canadian beer.

      • Fucking truth. Molson is piss. That’s the only beer I ever got sick from.

        Molson is not representative of Canadian beer. I’ve never known anyone who drinks it. And yet it sells like hell. It’s so strange because if Canadians want cheep beer they typically drink something better and cheaper than molson (there are plenty of brands out there). What niche are they filling man? The dumbass fratboy who says “bro” a lot niche judging from the ads.

    14. Budweiser: Pee of champions.Want a decent American beer? Try a Samuel Adams or Sierra Nevada.

      I enjoy Guinness, Murphy’s, Newcastle, Steinlager, Tecate and Carona.

      Need to try more European Ales and Lagers. Also curious about a couple of Canadian Beers. Strangely hard to find in California.

    15. @the3g_ipwn:
      #1: Molson is a ‘North American’ Brewery. Canada as a country is only partially responsible. They even brew Corona.
      #2: Never drink Canadian beer purchased in America, because your country’s drinking laws force us to neuter and bastardize the beer before exporting it.
      #3: Every brewery has its cheep swill brand. You picked the wrong one brother.

      Come to Canada first, then pick up a Rickards, or a Big Rock. The Honey Brown or Red ales are very nice. Though taste buds highly differ.

    16. @Puulaahi: What Canadian beers are you curious about?

    17. MrDooves:

      Why in God’s name would I ever want to go to Canada. It’s too cold for me in Kentucky.

      I have had Honey Brown though. It was pretty good too. I drink alot of different brands to mix things up. But, if I am going to start drinking at 9 AM and get Chineese Eyed, I’ll drink Bud.

    18. It’s not THAT cold…. *pout*
      Its 25 celcius today. Give it a month,
      then i’ll be ready to shoot myself.
      At least I’ll always have beer.

    19. Maybe to you it’s not cold. Keep in mind that it has only snowed here 3 times in the 28 years I’ve been alive. And only once did it not melt before hitting the ground, the night I was born incidentially.

    20. Dark beers and Lager’s are the only REAL beers. With the exception of a few like Sam Adams Summer Ale.

      Reply

    21. I always love how the minority always claim to have the only REAL oppinion. Like I said. Budlight out sells all other brands COMBINED. So, I guess there are a few who whould disagree that it’s not REAL.

    22. Do they sell Kokanee outside of western Canada? I have no clue. Truth told, that’s the only beer I’ve every really liked. I live relatively close to the brewery (Kootenays) so everyone drinks it around here but I don’t know if it’s really that common outside of BC/Alberta.

      Reply

    23. Oh, yeah, I’m gonna back whoever up on the Molson being shit thing. I’d never let Molson touch my lips again. Only beer that’s made me puke.

      Reply

    24. @Caio, you can find Kokanee throughout Canada, at least as far as East as Ontario, but not exported. Kokanee is my ‘default’ beer, when I can’t get
      Rickards, Big Rock, or Sleemans. And I agree, Molson is trot water, save for the few good brewery’s they’ve annexed that aren’t bad.

      @the3g_ipwn, Budlight outsells other beers cause its cheap… and rednecks will drink anything. Britney Spears has sold millions of albums, does that mean she’s talented?

      Reply

    25. Yeah, Big Rock isn’t bad. I like their Pale Ale and Grasshopper, though a lot of their off beers are kind of crap. That’s what a lot of people drank back in Calgary (in addition to the standard Molson and Lucky Star or whatever the cheap disgusting brand was). Never cared for Sleemans, never tried Rickards.

      Me, I’m always gonna go for the Glacier Fresh taste of Kokanee.

    26. ipwn seems to think that popularity and quality are closely linked.

      Reply

    27. and he would be wrong. In fact, I find quite the opposite. Quantity/Quality, Expense/Value…: The correlation is often a balance scale. One or the other. But hell, if the whole world loves BudLight, my taste buds must be wrong. You can’t argue with numbers.

      Reply

    28. It’s the whole “all other brands COMBINED” thing. Hell there can’t be that many of us rednecks. If they were Ford Trucks wouldn’t be in the tank right now. And, besides, rednecks are very loyal to the beer they drink. If a redneck drinks Bud, that’s what he drinks everyday.

    29. Dude, it’s a matter of marketing, and distribution.

      Do you know that ‘Friends’ is rerun in pretty much every country on earth. Do you think it’s because Friends is the best TV show in the history of the world? No way. It’s because GE knows the humour is simple and broad enough to be easily translated and that most of the appeal is in tits and ass, and they spend millions making sure it’s spread to every fucking country with more than a thousand televisions.

      If you think popularity = quality in the world of aggressive marketing, you’ve got to explain to me why the Backstreet Boys have charted in every country that has music charts.

    30. “My beer is better than your beer.” “Well my beer could beat up your beer.”

      You all sound like a bunch of four year olds arguing.

      SACK UP AND DRINK WHISKEY!!!!!!!!!

    31. What I like about Bud Lite? Real Men of Genius commercials.

    32. Caio is right on the mark with this one. The ‘popularity because of aggressive marketing’ concept is not just beer, Backstreet Boys and Friends, hell the same can be said about beany babies, Islam, Indian food, Britney Spears and the New York Yankees. The all suck and everyone except the kool-aid drinkers know it, yet money and/or violence (ie, aggressiv marketing) was use to expand consumers of these sub-par items. Ya, I know there’s going to be some cry-baby out there that’s going to say “You suck, Indian food is great” or “Islam is a religion of peace, you hate monger”, all rational people know that Indian food is overloaded with spices to hide the putrid meat underneath and Islam, well let’s just say you have to an idiot if you equate Islam with peace. With that, I think I’ll go get some Sierra Nevada Pale Ale tonight and get my Tiki on.
