... because it's light!

So last night I went out with a few friends and a had a beer. Between the four of us that ordered a beer we had a Fat Tire, Blue Moon, Sam Adams Boston Lager and .... a Bud Light! Tall, no less. I asked my friend why, with all the choices available, she would drink a Bud Light. She responded "... because it's light!". She also added that it's not bitter like the ales she has tried and it's smooth. Fair enough! I had her taste it against the Sam Adams Boston Lager, which she "kind of liked", but it was a little more bitter than the Bud Light, in her opinion. So there, we have a positive opinion on American Style Light Lager that's not due to it being cheap or the only choice. +10 for American Style Light Lager!

Because it's light? My feeling is that if you're going to have a beer and unwind, who cares about light? Does your friend mean light as in less calories or light as in not heavy?

haha! this is a good story geoff! thoroughly enjoyed it! However, next time you go out with your friend get her involved in some stella artois. This is my favorite lager and i think she will like it. Have you come across "stella" before? iv had it iun two fools and a few other places. It is the main drink we have in England and i found it can be expensive out here. If you have not tried it then get some down you, i promise you will enjoy!

Stella Artois is my favorite beer and I know nothing about its origin, production process, . . . or . . .

I do, however, know something about the development of the beer industry in Mexico. I'd like to hear what you have to say about histories of beer industry development in assorted countries--particularly Mexico.

Bullcrap it's light. It goes straight beyond light into beer water territory. I went to Anodyne last night and had a Liberty Ale, which is, bar none, my favorite beer. I'm not a big fan of domestics, but the ones I do like (Fat Tire, Liberty) blow away imports.

Analysis of “Beerology 101”

In Beerology 101, some of the readers want Geoff to talk about imported beer. They want his opinion on imported beers. Other readers want more information about the beer industry, such as local pubs or national beer industries like Mexico. He should definitely think about taking his blog in these directions.
