The Rock no longer rolls

August 8th, 2006 | Posted by Real Beer

Not sure how I came across this blog post but the headline sucked me in and the message reflects the mood of many who have posted responses to other entries here about Rolling Rock production heading to Newark, N.J. (further documented yesterday the the New York Times).

Anyway, from the blog:

Funny. I always thought that the reason Bud tasted the same no matter where it’s brewed is because it’s “beer” who’s recipe has been watered down over the years to the lowest, most generic piss-water common denominator for the hordes of sheep who fall for sophisticated, multi-billion dollar advertising campaigns.

Amazing the emotions beer brands can evoke.

    I heard the same thing about Bud (lowest common denominator aspect), but I still drink it when the occasion calls for it.

    The only time the occasion calls for Bud et. al. is when you are visiting your inlaws or taking the occasional sips while cooking with it. Its known as cooking beer in these parts. Heck, some people even add it to their laundry load.
