A better question would be "Is Budweiser really beer?"
Frequently referred to around here as "barley pop".
But, hey, a cold Bud is better than no beer at all!
Especially on a hot day!
Some of the good ones are gone now...
Black Label (remember the ads, "HEY MABEL, Black Label!")
Some of the bad ones are gone, too, though;
Great Falls Select ("the headache in a can")
Olympia (not really bad, but not all that good, either)
CM1, USN (RET)
2002 Fleetwood Southwind 32V, Ford V10
Daily Driver: '06 PT Cruiser Turbo
Toy and Toad: 2001 Dodge QC SWB, 360 Magnum, Auto, 4X4
Other toys: a pair of Kawasaki Brute Force 750 ATVs and a boat.

Help me out here. During the late 60's, I was in Boston for awhile. There was some cheap beer sold locally who's name I've forgotten. I do remember that you kinda had to clench your teeth when you took a drink to keep the big pieces out. I'm thinking it was San Miguel from the Philippines? I was in the Navy then (and constantly broke), and there was a big difference between what I liked and what somebody would buy for me if I'd drink it.
Retired and visiting as much of this beautiful country as I can.
Anybody drink Saranac particularly the Black & Tan variety? It is from Utica, NY. I can't get it here in MN and Iowa (nearest place to me that sells it) is a bit far to drive just to get some beer. That is what caused me to start making my own. Only way to get the bitter, hoppy taste I like.
