Even a half-German guy would still prefer imports over MGD or Lite beer from Miller.

I don't know if this is true. I used to have a very good friend in Germany and when I visited her they had a lot of local German beers that they drank and used in cooking etc, but when they wanted to drink something "good" it was Budweiser. I think there might be something about wanting a beer that was not from your home country.

not to hijack the thread, but I should've put 2 & 2 together (hehe... 2+2) between your remarks earlier and the fact you kept pointing out how hot the asian girls were across the room. Nice avatar man & good playing with you last weekend in the 10/20.

She was probably using the "real" Budweiser (Budvar) which is made in Czech Republic I believe. Don't all Europeans hate American beer with a passion?

I think is it funny how most AC regulars find the Borgata drink service to be so great. Yeah the sluts bringing you the drinks are hot, but the selection is weak compared to a place like mirage. One night playing hammered 3/6 there the waitress brought me 2 jaegerbombs and a beer every single time around. That would never happen anywhere in AC.

I was always under the impression that they hated American beer, but that is not what I experienced while I was there. This was a girl and her group of friends and they seemed to love everything American (one year she got me to send her a bunch of American flags because they wanted to wave them at a parade).

I logged in to say this exact same thing.

While the selection of beer is weak at the Borg, the service is great and the chicks are hot. I try not to drink much while i'm playing so a few Coronas is fine by me.

Though I would'nt mind if I could get a bottle of Smithwicks or Bass at the table.

i'd quote this a million times but i dont want to muddy up the thread

to those who dont get good drink service in ac, tip the woman of the night 20 bucks once and get 2 of what you're drinking every time she comes around, thirsty or not

here's to throwing up in the super-fast borgata elevators after 372 rum and rums

Do they serve Budwiser? Budwiser is the King of Beer.

Switch to Budweiser
 
That's why they are getting rid of it!!! Besides being a mediocre excuse for a malt beverage, this once proud american company is now a wholy owned division of South African Brewers.

Anheuser-Busch is the last major American owned brewer. Do all of us a favor and switch to Budweiser. It tastes better, is fresher and the profits stay in the US.

Enjoy!

rankin those crappy american lights
 
Out of the 4 major American light beers, it definately goes

Miller Lite > Busch Light > Bud Light > Coors Light

Anyone that disagrees, well, I don't know what to tell you, except you are obviously wrong.

other1 12-29-2005 06:06 PM

Re: Switch to Budweiser
 
Wait a second.. I never said Coors!

budman 12-29-2005 11:17 PM

Re: Switch to Budweiser
 
Coors is owned by Molson from Canada (they merged and over 50% of the company is Canadian owned). The majority of the profits go to Canada.

Sam Adams (Boston Brewing Company) is just a marketing concept. Until recently they did not even own any brewing capacity. They shopped around to existing brewers with excess capacity and bought up brewing time.

Drink Bud.

budman 12-29-2005 11:21 PM

Re: rankin those crappy american lights
 
Try Budweiser select. You'll be suprised. It has a very crisp flavor and a very clean finish. Once you've given it a try and then go back to Miller Lite you will probably find Lite's aftertaste to be unpleasant.
I compliment you on not being a beer snob. Busch Light happens to be an excellent product that is often overlooked because of its price.

budman 12-29-2005 11:24 PM

Re: Switch to Budweiser
 
One of the most famous beer advertising campaigns of all time was a Budweiser promotion from the 1950's. It was called 'The Budweiser Five Day Test"
What you do is for five days drink only Budweiser, and drink at least one per day. On the sixth day drink whatever beer you had been drinking and then decide which one is better.
I dare you to try it.

Bud Select is the only American beer I will pay for. It is really quite good with a very smooth finish, just as they advertise!
