Free Beer (no, really, it is free, and its beer)

Apparently U.S. Budweiser is doing so badly among young people in the States that they are sinking their ad budget into providing, wait for it, free beer to Gen Y'ers. http://www.stltoday.com/business/art...75f94a313.html

of course, IMHO, you can't even give that stuff away, tasting of horse urine as it does. but that's just my opinion.

It's only for one hour though

I don't know about horse urine, never tried it but kudos to you. I haven't had a bud for a while but don't mind it personally

Feldschlossen makes anything else taste good. Are buds still weak as hell fizzy water in the US?

I disagree.

Mainstream beer here is literally Swiss Piss. Given the large Kanton next door, I find this odd.

I'd drink Bud over Swiss Piss anyday.

I have always hated beer, but in all honesty Bud is not beer rather some watery beer-like substance,even I could drink it

Re: Free Beer (no, really, it is free, and its beer)

I'm not too far from the Budweiser brewery that's in Van Nuys, California. Their beer is absolutely disgusting so I can understand why they're doing so bad. And don't even get me started on Bud Light....

Czech Budweiser or Pilsner Urquell, for a pilsner style. I agree that most swiss beer is pretty awful too....

Re: Free Beer (no, really, it is free, and its beer)

Huh.
Whenever I've had Bud it's been free as well... usually my (then) bf and his buddies bought it and kept topping off my glass so I'd not realize how much I'd had.

So far as the taste, well, they served it with some salt and a slice of lemon in it, it was pretty good that way.


I used to drink Miller Lite when I was the one buying and have been to their brewery a time or three when I used to live up that way. My "favorite" also comes from that general area (their brewery was bought by Miller) is Leinenkugel Red.

Edit:
Forgot to mention... If you happen to get up that way and visit the Miller Brewery, they have free "samples" (2 glasses) of beer following the tour.
