I was about to add that point Mike! People are delusional if they think there is something noble about smaller companies and something inherently evil about bigger companies. All big companies started small and all companies NEED to make a profit to grow and survive. I have no love for Anheuser-Busch because of their bullying business tactics and monochromatic product offerings, but capitalism is still THE BOMB!!! The question I have is "Can they deliver a good product and can they play fair?"

As much as you might not enjoy Bud light, it is a well made beer. The difference that many people here tend to forget is that not liking the taste of something is not the same as not having a well made product. The QC on Budlight is amazing. Having the ability to take natural ingredients from across the country, various water from different sources, and different brewers being able to make a product that relies on microbes to make, that tastes the same if you get it in Florida, Michigan, or California is nothing short of amazing. Bash them on how they get the product out to market, or how the industry works, but no one should ever bash AB about the quality of the product that they make. Just because you do not like it, doesnít mean that it is not well made. Quality versus enjoyment are different things.

Might wanna get a step stool to help you get off that high horse because when you finally find out that your beloved craft brewers pull the same corrupt shit and are in it for profit as much as the big guys, you are in for a pretty big fall.



Like selling knowingly infected batches or undercarbonated/overcarbonated batches? WHO WOULD DARE!@!!!!

Ha! ....just like McDonalds sells a "well-made" hamburger! They are both pieces of shit, mass-produced, brand-oriented, cheaply made products that appeal to the lowest common denominator on the flavour spectrum. There is NO skill involved here-- these are giant factories that defecate monotony into the mouths of the masses.

I donít know if then canceling each other out would necessarily be for the better of human kind. Do a google search for "Budweiser Donations" and you will see they donate a helluva lot of money to lots of different charities. Granted the make a lot of money off a sub-par product, and every donation is a tax write-off for them, but they are still giving a lot of money to great causes. Therefore, think before you speak...and think before you wish for a corporation to go away. There are a lot of military families out there who would probably disagree with you. Also, NB4...just in case.

Sometimes I wonder why I soil myself here.
How about Catholicism? Look how many good causes they support yet they are one of the most evil f*cked up entities on earth.
