Maybe, the Belge will make the beer actually taste good. Belgian beer is damn good.

Sort of funny thinking about the Repo Man drinking cheap beer Bud from the Home-Depot-credit-card-Fridge in the repo'ed Double-Wide that was double loaned with an ARM.

America itself has become an episode of "My Name is Earl."

I wouldn't call much of InBev's portfolio "damn good" - this would be just one more insipid brew to add to their list.
