Check out "Beer Wars" on Netflix. American commercial brewers are not even producing beer the same way when they first arrived in the US and started producing it. Commercialized beer is nothing more than the low income, middle income blue collar workers of America spending their hard earned cash and making a corporate capitalist even richer. Support you local micro brewers at least the money stays local.
I may be wrong but I don't see any Sam Adams,Bluemoon, etc.or and micro brew logos on the side of a Nascar.
Sam Adams brewed a first batch of "Merry Mischief" this year...a "gingerbread stout" that is very tasty and still rates up there with rocket fuel in horsepower. If they have it next holiday season take an old beer drinkers advice ... try it before the Chivas.
I like heavier beers with lots of hops - IPAs, ESBs (my favorite). Porters or Guiness are a bit over the top for me but I don't mind one with dinner. For chillin' in a hammock or firing up the BBQ, gimme ESB any day. I don't even consider alcohol content when purchasing - I go for flavor. Even different micro-brews have different tastes to their brews, you just gotta find your own favorite. I wind up paying $8-12 for a six pack, but it's worth it to me.
Kinda like the $7/gal milk threat - I don't care.
I love a story where the writer has no concern for the facts. Not that it matters a hill of beans to anyone but Michelob didn't come out in 1986. It's been around since 1896 and has been shipped all across the US since the early 60s.
Sales of domestic beers are down because companies like AB InBev are using cheaper ingredients so the beer tastes differently and even Beck's can now be considered a domestic beer as it's brewed in St. Louis.
