Bud isn't beer

I'm not much of a drinker any more, but I do enjoy a really good beer once in a while.

About 20 years ago I stopped drinking most major US labels because they all taste like water. Beers, ales and lagers from around the world have spoiled me because they brew quality rather than quantity.

Now we have this article which shows a lawsuit again Budweiser which was accused of watering down their product.

I suspect many Americans won't care. They are mindless sheep who follow iconic big breasted women, dogs and funny commercials to determine what beer they drink.

bud has always been a

bud has always been a rip-off.  anheuser busch stole the name (and i've heard the recipe, but obviously they fucked that up beyond belief) from one of two breweries in ceske budjeovice in the czech republic.  there's an ethnic german-made beer and a czech-made beer that both go by the name "budweiser."  more than likely, anheuser busch ripped off the czech one, since their logo also uses red and white.

as part of a settlement, american budweiser can only be sold as "bud" in europe and czech budweiser as "czechvar" in the US.  so if you want to try the genuine article, go to your nearest liquor barn and buy a half-liter bottle of czechvar.  then, for shits and giggles, stop into a 7-11 and get a six-pack of budweiser.  i guarantee you they both have the same amount of wort in them.  the taste will be embarrassingly incomparable and the bottle of czechvar will likely get you as high as the six-pack of bud.

with fear and filth and cowardice and shame."

The real (Czech) Budweiser. My absolute favourite beer.
