Is it the alcohol or is it just morons that can post with out knowing how to come up with and adjective that isn't a four letter word.  Or could it be that you only use profanity when your drink. I have great idea "don't post and drink"  You know you can start home brewing your own beer, see what it takes to make a beer that you will enoy and you never know you may learn increase your IQ and find there are more than just four letter word.

Quit arguing and drink a an Old Embalmer (10.2%) from Widmer Brothers. That'll make you completely forget about giving a crap. Guaranteed.

I think it's been brewed sinince 1896, instead of 1986.  I know for sure that I drank it pre-1986.

I'm sure Southpark's " I'm a redneck and I'm in trouble" Pabst episode had something to do with the Pabst decline ..

I have drank the beers of many parts of the world, I thought Nippon Beer of Japan was good, but there was a beer, I drank in Rio, I believe it was called Brahma Chops, or something like that, anyway it had a head of foam, you could almost chew, and a taste, that was excellent. Most of the German beers are very good, better quality then the ones that are brewed here in the states, under the same label.

Of American brands, I have drank, I would say probably Coors, and Oley of Seattle are the best. 60 years ago, California had a beer called Lucky Lager, No idea if it's still brewed.. It wasn't bad at all. A lot of other beer drinkers must of thought so too, as they claimed to sell enough in 24 hours, to float a Battleship. Personally, I thought Slitz was a great U.S. beer, during it's time.

Sam Adams.  Boston Lager.  Not watered down and yet not "muddy and gritty' Like the  European beers.  I cannot believe I ever drank Coors, Bud, etc.  Watered down trash. Want a Heineken? No thanks I'll just drink from the toilet here.  They can spend all the advertising dollars they want, their beers are garbage.  Sam Adams blows them all away.

Budweiser Beer originated in the land of Pilsner Chek Republic and is still a great Beer if your in Europe to buy it.
