These beers are losing money because People have moved on to American MicroBrews or Foreign Beers.

This is a BS article. It's hard enough to commercially brew a beer whether its a traditional American lager or a new-age craft micro-brewed ale. Why such a slam on the brewer? He's working hard for your enjoyment. I drink and enjoy both. For those of you craft aficionados, I'm not trying to dis you but the American style lager still outsells craft 8 to 1.

miller,budweiser,coors michelob etc all horrible m****duced beer.     it was popular back in the day because the "micro Brew" had not really taken off yet. that and Budwieser was sort of a pop culture beer with all of the marketing, Spudz Mackenzie, the Clydesdales, sports figures pimping differnet brands   etc..     to echo one of the other comments.  There are EXCELLENT  american beers !!  go to the store and try ANYTHING made by Widemere, or Deschutes brewery,full sail,Rogue, bridgeport.     all great beers.  all provide a wide variety from fruity to light pale to heavy dark stouts.

All beer tastes horrible, period.

 

Years ago one of the bottled water companies did a study that involved depriving one hundred ordinary, average American folks of 'sufficient hydration' for several days. After the requisite deprivation period, the subjects were allowed to sample various refreshing liquids like water, tea, beer, wine, mixed drinks, lemonade and a variety of soft drinks to determine the 'best beverage for slaking your thirst.'

 

87 chose water. Eight chose a soft drink. Two chose tea. One chose a mixed drink. Two chose beer. Most of the thirsty test subjects indicated that the beer tasted 'disgusting.'

 

Pretty much sums it up.

If your going to spend money on something to drink, spend a few bucks more and make it worth while. The beers no one is drinking in the article, "SUCK" its flavored piss water. The micro brewers are doing a great job!!

That "SUCKS"  Michelob is all I've drank in the last 20 yrs. But I have noticed it's harder to get at local Drive-Thru's and a lot of Carry-outs.

Guess this ole man'll just have to stock up!

Wow, this is probably the 5th or 6th time I've seen this story posted as big news. Give these businesses a break. There's nothing wrong with any of these products. It's hard enough in the market place. Peoples jobs are at risk with this kind of negative journalism.

Why drink America Bud which is a poor imitation of the real Bud.  Give the Czech Budvar a try...full of
Hop flavor, and around 5 % abc.

Equity indices began the day in the red, but wasted no time regaining their flat lines. Small-cap stocks were not as fortunate as the Russell 2000 spent the day in the red.
