I remember as a child, when we were on vacation and such, all us kids in the minivan would be instructed to keep our eyes peeled for Guinness on tap.  It wasn't as common outside of Irish pubs ten or fifteen years ago, and drinking stout from the bottle was simply unacceptable.  So when they came out with the draught can, it was a big deal...  But now that you can get Guinness draught at most bars, and now that my dad's friends include a) a guy who gave him a keg-o-rator and b) a high-ranking official at the beer distro/import company, he has an endless supply of free guinness kegs, the draught cans taste gross all of a sudden.  But they were an improvement, y'know?

I mean, if Bud is the threshold then, dumbish, meet my good friend Miller High Life

Et tu, dbd? I mean, I know the Errol Morris ads were great, and it's nice that High Life's a bit cheaper, but... people repping hard for High Life/ Pabst/ Old Style/ "the beer of the prole" mystify me. It has nothing to do with the product and everything to do with its marketing. No thanks.

haha what?  Bud spends more money on one stupid misogynistic frat-geared ad than Old Style's entire marketing budget for this decade.

I rescinded! I rescinded! You all are right! If there is a beer of the proles it's sweat and dirt, brewed with the hops of exploitation and the barley of desperation.

I mean, High Life and Old Style are kinda gross, for sure, but no more than Bud, and they're a few bucks cheaper.  I don't see what the problem is.

I guess it just boils down to whether you have an overblown, irrational hatred for strawfrat boys or an overblown, irrational hatred for strawhipsters.

I get confused. Which one's the strawbeer for the strawfrat boys and which one's the strawbeer for the strawhipsters? And what about the strawproles?

Also Budwieser isn't just a frat beer, in all honesty I really did see normal honest working types drink it, but that was the cheap low-end beer (same price as PBR) in western Maine. Sayin.

Bud has strawclydesdales.

Oh, I'm fine with your [dbd's] reasoning there, so long as it's self-aware. Just can't handle when someone claims one of the American lagers tastes better than the others, when what they're really responding to is the marketing.
"This brand has picked signifiers that more closely match my tastes than that other brand's. Woo!" Ugh.

Edit: xpost like crazy. I now wish my original message just said "cheap beer."

Related question-- are there any good beers that come in cans? Bottles are a hassle to carry anywhere.

Sly Fox!  When my roommate when a chili cookoff a few months back, his prize was three cases of Sly Fox beer.  And he tends not to like hoppy beer, so it was just Pale Ale after Pale Ale for me!

Boddington's is delicious out of a can. It's not flat; it's just that it's got a nitrogen widget, so the bubbles are, like… smaller.

i wasn't aware they were available otherwise. in fact, it's part of their marketing: "world's best canned beer," etc.

then there's the website:

Why cans? We thought the idea of our bold, hoppy pale ale squeezed into a little can was hilarious. It made us laugh for weeks.

It's slightly different out of the tap vs. the can, but it's not like Newcastle where it's like night and day.

Does anyone get more severe hangovers or headaches when they drink more than one or two drinks from a tap that has the nitrogen tanks?

8 beers deep, with another six in the fridge. I've work in six hours. I should stop drinking on a work day.

(I think it is implied that by "attempting to read Foucault", what I mean is that I am sitting here at the computer, while the Foucault text lies open on my bed)

well that's typical! You read Foucault and drink what I imagine is lovely 9% beer, whilst I think about masturbating into a sock and drink cans of friggin grolsch.

xpost with alex, who I was also responding to. man, you messing me about to night. Heart
