As does McDonalds, as does Taco Bell, as does KFC, as does Starbucks. Just because you can consistently make a shitty product, doesnít mean you have quality. The so good at being bad argument is dumb and cowardly.





Good and bad are subjective. For every one person that enjoys craft beer, and dislikes BMC products, you are going to find several hundred people that drink BMC products and enjoy them. They enjoy the taste of the beer. Just like there are millions of people that enjoy KFC, that enjoy McDonaldís, and enjoy Taco Bell. Just because you think theyíre "shitty" doesnít mean they are.

The FACT is that Bud Light in Illinois is Bud Light in Florida is Bud Light in Maine. They donít have infection issues that arise. There arenít bottles that are a roll of the dice if theyíre good or not. It tastes the same, no matter where itís consumed and no matter where itís produced. If you canít see how thatís impressive, then maybe you should take off your blinders.

Itís impressive if youíre an engineer, or a QA specialist, or a food scientist. Among my peers that have disdain for the macro brewers, the biggest issue is the activities outside the bottle as opposed to the product itself. If you think about what you drink and care about the brewers that matter, you canít turn a blind eye to the ethics (or lack thereof) among the macro brewers.

"American Lager aged on oak bourbon casks with vanilla spice"
Cool, barrel aged Budweiser.

Also, cool they have the same quality of a 4.2% beer with a bland non-descript flavor from factory to factory that more than likely has most things automated. Yawn.
