I will admit I yelled at the commercial when it came on. I just yelled bulls*** over and over until my wife said shut up! Personally, I will not drink Bud or other macro beers. Don't care for the taste and I save my beer calories for something I actually enjoy. I also don't agree with their tactics - marketing, squashing the small guys, etc. I am not bothered nor do I care if other people drink AB, etc. It's their money, so spend it where you want. I choose to homebrew and buy craft beer.
Do I think Bud is crap? No. It's a well made lager, but with no real flavor IMO. I would rather have a water than a BudMillerCoors beer.
AB is going nowhere, but the decline in sales has to be concerning to them. More and more younger people are trying craft beer early on. There is a movement across the country to buy things like beer, food and other goods locally. Younger people are part of this movement which is definitely hurting the sales of Bud.
