Beer news- the 3rd most popular beer in America now is......
Natty Light enters the seltzer game...
Four Loko would like you to allow them to retort
14% seltzer, what could possibly go wrong?*
Oh you wanna get nuts? LETS GET NUTS!*
the replies are, just wonderful
these are great*
so good *
133 calories seems...high?*
Compared to other seltzers, yes. But it's also 6% ABV*
I feel like there's a level of self-awareness here that I can appreciate. *
great name *
I get "Aloha Beaches" but not the other :( *
Movie reference. Step Brothers. *
My wife’s company has a cider called grapefruit and chill
I just looked it up. Is that co-branding or blatantly ripping off their design IP?*
The Schilling has been around way longer
Yeah, that’s some A+ marketing. *
the ####ing catalina lime seltzer *
going hard for that lady college tailgater market *
I think they’ve found something here with the way they’ve marketed Naturdays and now this.
It was Natty's partnership with Barstool circa 2015 that sparked all of this.
no doubt. it's pretty good strategy *
I've bought two cases of Naturdays in preparation of tailgating season
It's a great boat beer, but my limit is about 2 or 3 before I need to move on.*
I heard the 2 or 3 Naturday limit from several people this weekend.
I’ve also got a couple cases for FB season. It’s a good hot weather beer
What's it taste like? *
A shandy with a strawberry twist
Meh. I don't like shandy and struggle with sweet alcohol drinks. Hard pass*
Where's Little Kings? *
That Modelo jump tho*
What's driving that? I would have thought Corona would be #1.*
Corona drinkers realizing Modelo tastes better?*
Not above a can of Tacate~~~~>*
yes this in part. Corona is shit but modelo is pretty good. Also, it’s just a demographic thing
It's the cool ad with the Spaghetti Western music *
huge marketing push,especially with bars. Costellation grew a ton, and corona was already establishe
Pacifico is great, as is Sol
Yeah, I prefer Pacifico if I’m going that route. *
I'm a Pacifico fan, too. Much better than Corona, which is basically beer-colored water.
Same--I saw my first ad for Modelo just recently. Corona ads are on all the time.*
People have shitty taste in beer
The same idiots who like Taco Bell*
Don’t loop me in with his stupidity*
I'm a snob, but I'm not unaware of what is popular*
There’s a time and place for pretty much everything. Drink what you like.
Ice cold, mass produced? Or other?
Any/all. What do you typically drink?*
My guess is white claw*
Literally every city and town in the United States.*
I think all of the busch lite is drank in south eastern IL*
Busch Light & Mich Ultra have to be 1 & 2 (either order) around here.
Bud Ice makes strong showing for the bang for your buck crowd! *
How does Bud Ice differ from Bud Light from a taste standpoint?*
I'd say comparing the two is kind of like comping Bloomington tap water to Champaign tap water.
it's not...easy drinkin
i used to buy Busch Ice 12 packs at FT Bragg
I don't feel like I see that many people drinking Mich Ultra...
It's everywhere here and was on coastal Georgia*
you'll see Michelob Golden Draft on tap in the STL area
Michelob Golden Draft Light is my favorite of the light macro brewed beers.
Packaged like a draft beer. Very little pasteurization for a packaged macro beer*
Think MGD Genuine Draft. Cold Filtered vs. Pasteurized*
It’s big with middle age people (moreso women) in the Chicago burbs, from what I’ve seen*
I would bet a ton of money the numbers don't show "the south" being the hot sales spot.
I'm a suburban body conscious type
yup, my vector was friends who always do fad diets ordering it at the bar
I'm sure it is. I just don't notice it until I visit my In-Laws in Fla...
Sidejack: I've had a Michelob heavy more recently than a Mich Ultra.*
i'll occasionally buy some Michelob
My fave US macro-brew back in grad school was Coors heavy
Rolling Rock - although I don't know if it qualified as macro back then *
I remember my Dad buying a few cases of it and bringing it back home on vacation.
Also the plot for Smoky & the Bandit *
That's due for a rewatch*
affectionately referred to as "yellow bellies" on the West Coast*
Coors “Banquet” is still out there in the stubby bottles.
5 points for the cool bottle, minus 5 points for the turrible name.*
is that rebranded as "Coors Banquet Beer"? *
It's been Coors Banquet since 1873....I think they are just marketing it.
That's all my neighbors drink. Go to a party and there are 197 ultra's in the cooler & nothing good*
yeah, in Quincy, it is everywhere somehow*
It's a pretty decent beer. Very inoffensive.*
Yeah, i have some in my fridge for chugging
I'm married to an Iowan
I drank two Bud Lights last night after my hockey game. TWO!
White Claw FTW*
heinous. as is anybody who drinks It*
lol, I was just getting ready to post that*
White Claw vs Busch Latte
Truly or nothing*
You a Truly guy? I bet you have a Android too*
You know it, got the S10 last month*
It's basically a four loko that went to private school*
I can't stop watching*
Not my favorite but a decent option. No laws when you drinkin' claws.*
this video is the best
Crook & Marker is the best in this category, IMO*
my wife works for a cider company
It'll be a fad, in my opinion.*
I've never had it, but yes*
No thanks. *
Ain't no laws when you're drinking claws
It is troubling that there's a billion dollars in sales of Natty Light.*
Can one still get a Natty 30 pack for under $10?
Hurts to see it doubling up on Keystone Light.
Natty's always just tasted kind of sour to me.

College roommate interned then was hired at A-B
I wonder how much of that is Naturday*
does that count? is bud light lime part of the BL numbers?*
For this particular chart no. Single beer brand only. There is a separate stat of ‘brand families’*
Really hard to compare apples to apples since it’s so new
Holy shit. *
Actually it probably won’t be that big. I was extrapolating summer sales linearly which
that explains a lot then*
Good question. *
I'd say no to both*
I would assume not*
Had a few sips of that this weekend. Perfectly adequate for what it is*
Why? Some people like cheap beer. *
Fake beer news *
Is it? *
Ultra is definitely fake beer *
like having sex in a canoe*
Lot of lunch hour roller bladers out there. *
I have literally never seen a Bud Ice being drank in my life
My BIL sells for the local AB InBev distributor...and he never has Bud Ice around.*
i had a few in MS a couple months ago *
Can get 2 25oz cans for under $3 in some places. Check brown paper bags*
It makes the best tasting beer bread.*
I saw it a bunch in Utah when I was in Park City.
the only time I've seen anybody drink it was when I still lived in Illinois
