They already are....by buying sell-outs and trying to keep the craft-brewery cred. I did hear something about a 'bud light ipa'....but that may have just been rumor or satire. (I didn't read the article myself) which just shows that they are completely clueless.

However, still many beer drinkers are afraid of any beer darker beers....though some of more mild in taste (though still with flavor) than the standard american **** water. It's about perception of 'dark' meaning hard to drink. I can see why Guinness is trying to market a 'blonde beer'.

I'll stick to the dark stuff thanks...
There are some exceptions, like Jacks Abby, that brew some really good American lagers.

Why? It's another option....it's not like they are replacing the main seller.
