    Interesting data on corporate beer losing popularity.

    Link: What's killing Big American Beer?

    I say good riddance -- especially to that moronic concept known as light beer. Local brews have flavor, character and freshness that can't be topped.

    I love light beer. I hate those thick brown colored beers with more calories than a pizza. I don't want to feel like I swallowed a bowling ball after drinking a couple of beers. i like my beer like carbonated spring water. thank you very much.

    Then why not drink carbonated spring water instead? Seriously, there are plenty of regular lagers that won't weigh you down. Light beer just seems so half-assed.

    you put far too much thought into it. you either like it or you don't. it's that simple. I'm not trying to make a statement with the beer I drink. I think a frosty cold bud light lime or a Coors light are delicious.

    What I'm enjoying this summer is Woodchuck Granny Smith hard cider. Also, Wachusett blueberry beer.

    Jacks Abbey house lager is it

    The only thing worse than light beer is all those sours showing up

    Who thought you could make a living out of corrupted fermentation

    Nope! Wachusett blueberry is nowhere near sweet -- just a hint of blueberry essence, very refreshing. Try it, you'll like it. Same with the Woodchuck Granny Smith -- just like biting into a fresh green apple. I HATE sweet fruity drinks.

    Coors light??? I can understand why there'd be a desire to remove calories from beer and in certain circumstances why you might even want the alcohol out of it but there is no excuse at all for removing the flavor. There's a misconception among the high volume low taste Big Beer guys that all craft brews are like drinking cement, nothing could be further from the truth. We summer in Maine and there a lot of great crafty's here, my personal fave with seafood is Allagash White but it's an accent beer and honestly is a touch heavy. For cold frosty consumption on a hot day I'm more of an IPA guy although I do like a frosty Shippy.

    I'm sure it was and no one would ever confuse it with the bubbly water that is Coors Light. If beauty is in the eye of the beholder then it's equally true that taste is on the tongue of the imbiber. This conversation inspired me to crack open a frosty Island Time IPA, brisk and refreshing.

    Craft beer all the way. With the ongoing explosion of that segment of the industry, there are more options available both locally, and in stores, than ever before. Including well-made tasty lagers.

    This is a big part of the reason these massive conglomerates are suffering. And they deserve it too, as with the acquisition of successful craft breweries by these guys, Miller/coors, ABI, Heineken, the shady **** they’ve been using for decades has come to light.

    That said, I will on occasion crush a few PBR’s or other adjunct light lager. Game day, golf, or whatever.

    I’m surprised those brands haven’t moved into the craft beer game yet. There will always be a market segment that just prefers those brands, however. See captain insano and college/high school kids. So they’re not going anywhere, but an investment into craft beers coupled with the mass production that they’re capable of would certainly seem to be a worthwhile investment.

    I've become more of a craft beer person, but I don't have a hate for the big beers. They're just meh; though I'll do a Sam Adams or Heineken here and there. For me, it started when I was traveling for work and would have to sample the local beer. Since then, I've found so many good local craft beers, including one in Germany this week that was outstanding, Schoenbuch Adler. It just makes me more curious to try more.

    I've got my favorites, but I'm also and avid IPA hater. I've stay away from the sours as well, but my dislike of those is far less developed.

    I'm not much of a drinker, period, but I do like a good draft beer occasionally with dinner. Maybe it's just bad luck, but I've never had a Heineken via bottle or draft that didn't taste skunky.

    I have a friend who's a huge beer expert and the hoppy stuff he's developed a palate for I can't stand -- waaaay too bitter for me. I generally steer clear of IPAs.

    They're just buying them out.

    Budweiser Is Trying to Fool You Into Thinking Its Beer Is Still Craft. Don't Buy It

    I'd rather have one Guinness or go to Trillium and buy a growler than drink anything from Bud, Coors and the others big beers. They're all awful. I was early in the craft brewing even before Samuel Adams but I think you'll see companies like Sam's the next to struggle. They were great when they were the only game in town but now there's so much out there that's better. I was in New Orleans recently and one of the micros breweries there called Gnarly Barley, love the name, simply blows Sam's out of the water. My point being New Orleans isn't exactly known for craft beer compared to places in the north from Portland Maine to Portland Oregon (said in my best Jack voice).

    I was at a wedding last night ... over 1/2 the guests were millennials.
    There was a choice of about 8 beers and 2 of them were Bud and Bud Light.
    I did not see anyone with either of those 2 ... Amstel appeared to be the favorite of the choices.

    I like imported beer. Heineken, Stella, Becks, etc...

    I’m Canadian but don’t really enjoy Canadian beer. Big brand American beer is generally horrible. Cheap and tastes watered down.

    I was in Vegas a while ago sitting at a table where the drinks were free. I was drinking a Heineken while a group of guys from Texas were drinking Bud. I said to the guy next to me “you realize the drinks are free”. Can’t believe someone would drink a Bud over a good imported beer.
