There have been a few random beer-related thoughts rattling around in my head for a while, and we've got a report from Herb on the road, so for a little change of pace, I thought I'd use this month's edition to rant, inform and maybe entertain a bit. So, pour yourself a tasty craft beer, slide your easy chair up next to the fire and read on.
Yeah, those guys. You know, the company with the flag-draped-uber-patriotic-all-American ads that is owned by InBev, an uber-Belgian company.
independent source, tests done on Bud, Bud Light Lime etc. found that the ABV listed was consistent with their test results. So why did three different lawsuits in three different cities suddenly crop up? What would lead a bunch of longtime Bud drinkers to feel that they were getting a watered-down version of the King of Beers? I do believe I have the answer - and it is a two-fold answer. A-B will be thrilled to know that a craft beer blogger has come to their defense.
You're welcome, A-B.
"While the kids were paying tribute to Uncle Walt, we wandered to Mt. Dora, a pretty little town in Lake County.
Besides a hundred plus antique dealers, cute shops and a town museum in the former jail house, there is the Mt. Dora Brewing Co. / Rocking Rabbit Brewery. As you might expect with a place having two names, they also have two beer lists. The web site listed a couple of 5.5% beers (okay for a day in the mid eighties). The list we ordered from started with a 7% and worked up to 9.9%. The only real surprise is that we ever left this place. Things are definitely looking better in Central FL!
I live in a craft beer black hole.
Or better yet, throw me an IPA.
Next month: Best Beer For Your Buck! Who's got the best tasting beer for under $9.00 a six pack? This should be interesting.
