Personally, I prefer the "Other Budweiser" anyway. If you get a chance to taste it, you will not be disappointed.

American beer is terrible. Rolling Rock and Sam Adams are the only two exceptions I can think of (This statement excludes the smaller breweries. Im talking about the big boys.)

Anheuser-Busch bought Rolling Rock in 06 and it hasn't been the same since they moved operations from Latrobe to New Jersey. But Sam Adams is a great American beer.

Once the sale to InBev goes through, all of the Big 3 US Breweries (Coors, Miller, Anheuser-Busch) will be owned by foreign companies (MolsonCoors, SABMiller, InBev). So if you want to buy American, you'll have to go down to the MicroBrew or Craftbrew level...which isn't a bad thing.

I really can't agree any more with this post. Most of the widely distributed American Beers kinda suck anyway, the sale of Bud doesn't change anything, IMO. I've never liked it. If I'm looking to get a beer that I enjoy drinking it's usually a microbrew.

I also agree about Rolling Rock

Bud drinkers only drink Bud they are very loyal to that beer. I think yo ueither hate it or love it.

Personally I hate it. Though I have started to like Bud Light w/ Lime after cutting the grass on a hot day.

Over the winter I was drinking Yuengling, I seriously gained ten pounds due to this. I have now gone back to Coors Light and lost the weight.

Yuengling is America's first ever brewery and now you can probably make the case that it, along with Sam Adams, are the only two produced on a semi-major scale that are worth a crap.

I like them both.

Miller Lite is good though, and has a legit claim to quality. They've won some awards with that beer.

I know alot of beer snobs turn their noses up to beers like Miller Lite but I actually like it once in a while when I want something light.
