Sub-optimal Beer

Despite massive gains made recently by the Craft Beer industry, beer made by Bud, Miller, Coors and other giants make up the vast majority of beer consumed in the world. Why do so many people drink this stuff? We taste it so you don't have to. (Listed as adults only for the occasional f-bomb, but otherwise safe.)

Sub-optimal Beer Episode 1: "Chelada" beers - May 22, 2008

Show notes

'Tis the season for drinking beer in the sun, which means 'tis also the season for beers that have been enhanced with any number of Summery flavors, the most popular being lime. The success of Miller Chill, which launched one year ago, has prompted Anheuser-Busch to blitz the market with a "limey" product of their own. The consumer can only benefit from this kind of competition, right? Listen as Jen, Rusty, Duane, Garrett, and Tony navigate the citrusy beaches of lime beers. At least we are safe from scurvy.

Ugh. I totally use the word "deign" wrong at about the 20:50 mark.

Great editing and thanks for setting it up, Tony (and Rusty). Let's do it again soon.

Of all the photos you took, you decide to use the one of me looking amusingly ill.
