I hear ya on that. It's is just slightly better than anything made by Anheiser-Busch. I will drink it only if I have to. Too many good imports and of course Colorado Microbrews to bother with that stuff.

Right-o! I miss my English Pub back home. So many yummy things to try, you could never get bored. And if you said you couldn't find something you liked, you might as well quit drinking beer, cuz if you can't find it in that place, you're never going to find it. Colorado microbrews rock. They've got quite a few homebrew stores, which is and intriguing thought.......But I'm terrible with chemistry, so maybe that is a bad idea.....

I usually stick to New Belgium and other Colorado micro brews. I like to drink "local", but also drink "well"

If you measure the alcohol content of "6%" beer by WEIGHT--guess what, it comes out about 3.6% or so. Not much difference between the two. A "secret" from a friend who worked for years in a Colorado brewery.
I worked for the brewery in Golden. 3.2% beer alcohol content is measured by weight. 6% beer alcohol content is measured by volume. If both are measured by weight then the "6%" beer is only 3.6% alcohol. A whopping 4/10% difference. So all of you out there that are drinking the "hard stuff" arent really drinking what you think you are. The alchol content of the beer is controlled and measured the way the government says to measure it.

Since this is the day before Thanksgiving, Thank God for the placebo effect from that additional 4/10%, because beer from a brewery or a liquor store is alot more than 4/10% more potent than grocery store beer. Long live the placebo!
