I happen to like Coors and Miller High Life as long as they are in the can. Bud just has a sour flavor I can't get behind. After some strenuous sweaty output one tastes fairly good but Buttwiper turns in my mouth if I try for more.

see, people are talking about liver, brain damage etc,  i am more concerned that you are doing strenuous exercise.  ughh. :o

Is it bad that I love Schlitz? Ever since they changed back to the "Gusto" recipe.

Haha, no! I also like Schlitz - Classic 1960's Recipe Schlitz, that is.  :D

Back in the 70s I was a wine salesman for a wholesale wine house that was also a distributor for Schlitz, and Old Milwaukee.  Us guys on the wine side of the business had a standing joke:  "Schlitz is the German word for skunk piss."   ::)

Here is an interesting article sort of related to this topic.

http://www.businessweek.com/articles/2012-10-25/the-plot-to-destroy-americas-beer

Extremely informative! Wish I had bought some stock 4 years ago... Great from the investor's point of view and not so great from the loyal consumers'- who are now voting with their wallets. And once consumer confidence is gone and particularly with beer it is hard to win them back.

Interesting article, but the title is so hyperbolic it turns me off.   There is NO "plot to destroy America's beer".  There is simply a way of running a business that isn't good for beer.

No worries, I'm still riding my bike 12.5 miles every morning.  That way I sweat out all the adult beverages I consumed the night before. ;D

However, I've heard that Mayor Bloomberg is moving to restrict all beer containers to no larger than 12 oz.   ;)

Favorite quote from that AB-InBev article:

Quote
In a telephone interview from Munich, Willy Buholzer, AB InBev’s director of global hops procurement, cheerfully insists that the company still brews the traditional way with Hallertauer Mittelfrüh. He says the reason that AB InBev stopped buying it was that it has a surplus. “We just have too much right now,” Buholzer says. “We need a break for a couple of years.”

AHA!  That confirms my theory that each AB brewery is issued one whole hop cone, which they dutifully wave over each and every batch of beer that they brew!   ;D

As long as he doesn't restrict ABV, I'm OK with that.  12 oz is enough at 10%.

though i don't necessarily ascribe high hops = good beer.

I'd slip it into a cooler at a party full of college students. Someone'll think they're getting awesome beer when they pull those bottles out.

I suppose this only works if you're not recognized by everyone there as a bottomless source for delicious homebrew.

For American adjunct lagers, I like Schlitz in the brown 12oz bottles.  Cheep and drinkable.
