Sort of the same with Guinness IMO. There are just too many other great choices out there.

    Guiness is a good stout that goes down easy. Comfort. Not a great beer, but good.

    I'd rather just go have a couple of beers. I'll buy you a Guinness, you buy me a Pliny the Elder. Deal?

    PBR might be the most terrible "beer" in the world. My view of how PBR was made is that someone got really drunk one night off moonshine and pissed in a can and called it PBR.

    edit: I like guiness. And I cant find Pliny the Elder down here, every time my dad goes up to russian river he calls me and rubs it in that he is drinking it.

    Deal! I am Irish though, so you get a couple Guiness' in me and I still might wanna fight you though haha

    Personally, I love the taste of Guiness, but i'm no beer snob and hate beers that are too hoppy, so to each their own. I also actually like PBR haha

    Same here, or at least I can write off a mediocre one as " Oh, ok.. I see what they are trying to do here with this one".

    It is ALL about marketing. No more, no less. Simple rule of thumb is when you get that big, you've got the money to market no matter how lousy the product is.

    I am unfamiliar with this following you speak of, but is it something similar to the piece of **** bros that sport Natty Ice for no apparent reason?

    I actually really, honestly, dig PBR. I was burned out on a lot of the craft beer this summer, tired of being a snob, spending too much, and basically not having much fun like when I first discovered craft beer. So, I decided to revisit (revisit is key) PBR. I can say with a straight face that it is a good beer, and is one that is refreshing and great for working in the yard or painting a bedroom during a hot summer day. Same goes for Icehouse. Those two might be my exceptions as far as "Fizzy Yellow Beer" goes. You can still go cheap without being entirely offensive to the palate in my opinion.

    Two months ago I would have written this exact same post over a few PBR's, and tonight I will say the same as I am about to finish my Old Numbskull from AleSmith.

    Thank you guys for finally using brown bottles rather than the horrendous skunky green ones you've been using for years!

    Really? Seriously?

    There have been dozens of craft failures that really aren't acknowledged simply because we in the community (which does more damage in actuality than promoting the art itself) "advocate" craft beer... whatever that means anyways. Its almost as if we are ashamed to dismiss an experimental,infected, or flat out nasty beer only because of its craft status, yet we have no problem loathing PBR and other good blue collar beers.
