9 Beer brands on the decline

Recommended Posts

I have to say, after coming back from Eastern Europe and having good and very inexpensive beer available, I simply can't stomach the big named beers anymore. I was at a cookout a while back and someone offered me a Bud light, and I was like, this doesn't have any beer in it! How can people pay for this stuff, never mind actually drink it. Now, I rarely drink beer, knowing that I'll never be able to get something as good as a 1.5 liter bottle of Zagorka, which cost me $2 back in Bulgaria and was better than any of the big brewers put out, even better than the less expensive Shumensko or Kamenitza which are about on par with MGD. The only beer even remotely approaching the toilet water known as Budweiser was Ariana, and even that was 75% better than Bud.

Sad times. I'm glad though to see that the big breweries that produce tasteless beer are selling less.

It's sad that Bud Light, arguably the worst tasting beer in the history of the human race, is the number one selling beer. American beer-drinking men, for the most part, have no clue whatsoever.

Good riddance! Waiting for Bud, Miller, Keystone, and other cheap crap to make this list.

Love supporting local craft breweries, whether it's St. Arnold's here in Houston, or Live Oak and Independence Brewing Co. in Austin. Stick it to the man!

Budweiser (the US American brewery, not the East European brand) is good for one thing:

Advertisements

They have some of the most funny ads running of all companies.

Now thinking about beer and ads I have to think of Dos Equis... Most epic beverage ads EVER.

True. I love their ads during the Super Bowl every year. And that time of year is rapidly approaching.

Oh right... Damn, this time I'll try to watch it.

I'm not really that much into Football, but I definitely think that the Super Bowl would be awesome to watch.

It's hard to get friends together for that I suppose as Football isn't very big in Germany.

*sigh*

one of my local bars in town i go to all the time Called the Spot agian tavern is getting this Brew on Tap

the first one in the list Black bear XX stout

http://alamedabrewing.com/houseales.php

A surprisingly light-bodied stout with hints of chocolate and coffee. Despite being the same color as the dark side of the moon, this beer has a subtle and intricate mouth feel. The Black Bear XX Stout has won two medals at the Great American Beer Festival.

they have good advertisements b/c they have nothing else left to sell. They cant talk about their beer b/c it's water. All they can talk about is "having a good time" and partying responsibly.
