Bud Lite & Busch Lite are the worst beers made. Yet they are the most
popular beers sold. Americans have no taste whatsoever. I'd rather drink
piss than drink that shit. The next son of a bitch that throws a bud or
busch lite can along my driveway will be shot.

Ditto for all of the big-name popular beers.
Since I don't drink as many, as many years ago ;
so the price-per-bottle is no longer a consideration -
I always ask-for and look-for local micro brews -
... I haven't been disappointed yet !
Support your neighbours - not the huge multi-nationals.

Why exactly are you so mad about this? If those were the only beers
sold, or the only ones available in a typical bar, I could understand it.
The reality is that today the store shelves are stocked with a staggering
array of beers produced by breweries large and small in the USA and from
abroad. The selections are probably 10x what they were just a couple decades
ago. And obviously people must be buying them, or the stores would not
For the record, I see Bush Lite coming in as #7. For the record, all
the beers in the top 20 that I see are the traditional American style
lagers, brewed by the majors, without a lot of taste. But the stores
and bars are stocked with an overwhelming array of other choices.
Speaking of piss...
Years ago there was a columnist for one of the Chicago papers named Mike
Royko. Many/most of his columns could be called "satirical sarcasm" but at
least one was pure truth.
That column involved a tasting of popular American beers. The uniform
opinion of the tasting panel was that they all tasted as if they had been
run through a horse.
Less alcohol means less calories. Theoretically, less calories means a smaller
beer gut. In reality, people who drik lite beer tend to drink more to
compensate, so in a sense it's a pointless exercise.
The lite beers are about 0.5 to 1% less alcohol. But they are supposed
to be lower in calories. What drives me crazy is that well over half the
people that drink it, are NOT on any diet, and many dont need to be. It
seems more like a fad than a need to drink the stuff. Almost every time
I am around beer drinkers, whether it's in a bar, or some sort of event,
I see about 90% or more of the cans are Bud or Busch Lite. Since I know
a bar owner, I asked him the percentage of sales, and those two are
about 90% of his sales.
What really gets me is that those lite beers have less than half the
taste, compared to the "full" beer from that same company.
I dont like any Anhauser Busch beers (Bud or Busch), but if I want a
beer and nothing else is being sold, I'll take a regular Budweiser. But
sooner or later someone is going to hand me a Lite, because they seem to
think everyone drinks it. I'll usually drink it, but I surely dont enjoy
it. The last wedding I went to, had Bud Lite in their tapper. I had one,
the rest of the nite I drank the free soda pop instead. It tasted better
and eliminated the headache I ususally get from Lite beers, if I drink
more than two.
I dont know, but I'm sick and tired of finding those cans along my
driveway, and it's always that same brand. They sure are not from
anyone I know. None of my friends drink that crap either, plus they all
know better than toss garbage on my property. Some people seem to think
that farms are garbage dumps. I get very pissed when people dump crap on
my property. I had a mechanic come here to do a tractor repair, and he
left about 5 soda cans, and some sandwich wrappers on the ground. When
he was done, I got my checkbook, and told him I'd pay him as soon as he
picked up his garbage. He did.
