You want good beer, go to Belgium......  America is pure greed, produces any garbage that they think  might make a profit, with enough dumbned down ignorant people to drink it that don't know the difference.  We tossed quality, anything of quality, in this country over 35 years ago......  Now we have idiots..  Do you really expect more?

Blue Moon is a chick beer,imports like Presidente is watered down piss beer.I agree with the Michelob brand.They need to go away already.Don't know anybody who drinks that.In my opinion,Corona & Heineken are the best beers unless otherwise.

The reason those beers aren't selling is that America doesn't want to down a case of piss water just to get drunk. Food and beverages with great taste and flavor matches are in vogue. I'd rather pay more and savor craft quality over crap quantity. All 5 beers listed are lagers competing with the likes of a Stella Atrois. I prefer ales myself because two in a evening are a wonderful treat.

I drink beer for the taste, if it taste like water down beer, then drink cool aide. I like the IPA, German, Czechoslovakian  beers. American light beers are a waste of time and money. Shock top, Blue moon, Shiner are good beers. Brooklyn Brewery produces a good IPA beer. A German friend once told me " you drink beer to get drunk, so why drink light beer at all "

The reason most of the high quality commercial beers are getting their kesters kicked, IS average working class men & women have a choice. And the choice seems to be micro-brewers. High quality great taste and little guy owned. Great American success story.

all american beers except maybe Sam adams is watered down pee. Lite beer is for idiots,we used to call it 3.2 in the military, we hated it, now its everywhere. Youd freak out if you ever had a real beer like they have in germany and other places.You dont know what your missing man.

If you can get it, Sprecher makes an African-style beer called "Shakparo" that is 100 calories for a 12 oz bottle and it is 5.6 %. It's also gluten free (made from sorghum & millet).  The taste is different (and may take getting used to), but for a full 5.6% beer that has the same calories as 3.2% light beers, you can't go wrong.
