The Silver Bullet Beats Up Bud!

Posted on January 11, 2012 | By TheEnabler | Comments Off on The Silver Bullet Beats Up Bud!

According to Beer Marketer’s Insights (which, I might add, is a leading source of beer industry information) has come out with the startling information that Coor’s Light is now the #2 brand of beer by volume in the United States. It has pushed Budweiser down to the #3 spot, the first time in 20 years that Anheuser-Busch did not hold the top 2 spots.

The complete top 5 was:
1. Bud Light
2. Coors Light
3. Budweiser
4. Miller Light
5. Natural Light

It seems that Coors Light (when you include Puerto Rico sales) increased….

Oh, thank the Lord for Peter Griffin. What was I thinking? Who cares and who drinks these beers anyway? I know that you can drink a billion of them without getting drunk or full, but water works the same way, and costs even less (Water, currently under $10.00 per case). Granted, I have consumed my fair share at times (see my related post – “Bud Light – My Involuntary Review”) but really, if you have to drink beer, drink good beer. I mostly drink hard liquor, brown thank you, and wine, but will occasionally drink the Sierra Nevada of the moment or a Bass Ale, or a Guinness. Anyway, to end my post I re-post one of my very favorite posters ever. I laugh every time I see it.

Damn lightweight weasel.

"The harsh, useful things of the world, from pulling teeth to digging potatoes, are best done by men who are as starkly sober as so many convicts in the death-house, but the lovely and useless things, the charming and exhilarating things, are best done by men with, as the phrase is, a few sheets in the wind." ~H.L. Mencken

The Dangers of Thirst

"Let your boat of life be light, packed with only what you need - a homely home and simple pleasures, one or two friends, worth the name, someone to love and someone to love you, a cat, a dog, and a pipe or two, enough to eat and enough to wear, and a little more than enough to drink; for thirst is a dangerous thing." ~Jerome K. Jerome
