Another Puzzler

This one irks me even more than that JC Pennys ad.

Dear Budweiser,

I've never really liked you.

I think your beer sucks.

Mostly because your alcohol is rice-based and rice-based alcohols, like sake almost always leave me with a headache whether I have consumed two or ten drinks.

But now you have gone and sold your soul to Belgian-based InBev yet still claim you are an American lager.

How can that beer?

The people have spoken - you can no longer stake that claim.

In all fairness, brewing beer wasn't an American invention - especially lager so your claims are comical at best.

Now could you please stop with the Great American Lager campaign already?

Really, first it was Ford trucks (with their Mazda engines) and now you Bud are coming at me with this.

I don't really care about the sale or your beer.

Maybe I should be taking this up with the ad agency?

And don't me started on the radio spot about how important the glass is to the Bud experience...

Budweiser sucks ass, always has. I find it most appropriate that they've been bought by the folks who make Stella Artois, which is pretty much the Budweiser of Belgium.

Robbo said...

You're right: anyone with a job wouldn't be drinking Bud -- unless it was free.

greg said...

dan- the thing that chaps me about Stella is that - like Labatts - is that it comes in 11.2 ounce bottles... cheating you out of what amounts to half a bottle of beer per six pack. those bastards.

robbo - my thoughts exactly.

Greg M said...

I never knew that Stella and Labatt's both rob you of almost a full once of beer. I think I have to stop drinking both as a matter of principle.

greg said...

indeed, GM, indeed.

and while i love craft beers and i know the cost of gas and hops has gone up, i refuse to spend more than $10 a sixer on beer on a matter of principle as well.

Lucky Lager were 11 oz.'ers i believe but at least you got a bottle cap puzzle out of the deal.

I'll drink (something else) to that, for sure.

Bud, Miller, Coors, any of that crap is a waste of space. Boycott Budweiser.
