    My venom toward the brand is their treatment of Dylan Mulvaney by not standing behind her after the homophobes were afraid this meant they were going to get butt raped in the middle of the night if they drank Bud Light.
    I agree. It was cowardice.

    drive my folks crazy, had to get a bunch… 

    pizza/breadsticks good when I was a kid
    Back in the day, all of the dough was made fresh every day.  Sometime around 94 or so, they moved to frozen dough.  This was after Pepsi bought them.  Sucked after that.  
    Yeah man I used to make that fucking dough! haha

    Cool story about Petrovic. He should do a Pizza Hut commercial or something
    When you made a fresh pizza or was really good.

    Everything else aside, a cold AF Budweiser is solid. Just like a Miller High Life or Old Style. And you can drink a few of ‘em.

    Champagne of beers!  What one of my buddies drinks when loading up on beers.  I prefer Lite.  Also, significantly fewer calories when tailgating or fishing or anything where a bunch of beer is consumed.

    In college we drank Milwaukee's Best (Beast) and Old Milwaukee (Old Mill Water).  Mainly because it was cheap.  I think you could get a case of Old Mill Water pounders for like $12 at the time at the small grocery store next door.  

    There was a group I would hang with sometimes that drank Ice House.  That was really bad beer with a strong/bad taste.



    Nowadays, I am mostly a craft beer guy and also like Semi-Dry Cider.  If I am in a situation where I know I am going to drink like 5+ beers, like a long tailgate or camping, I will go with what I call "marathon beers" like Coors Lite.  Bud Lite isnt terrible.  Molson Canadian Lite is fine as well as PBR.

    I've often pontificated on what today's college youth are drinking. I'm sure it's still all the cheap shit we drank but there are soooo many better options these days than 25 years ago.

    In college it was kegs of Busch. $26 for a half keg. We kept the Heineken keg in a secret room. Now I prefer scotch. I have a college freshman. They drink much less than we did, at least here in NY. And to stay on point, they seem less interested in the NFL.

    All l care about is wings, spinach artichoke dip, guacamole, pizza pies, kielbasa, maybe a sub or two, and warm chocolate cookies. That and being left alone for a few hours on a Sunday. I hope it is a good game!
    Perfect combos and what do you have for drinks? 

    On the wagon at the moment. So probably a case of plain polar seltzer.  Any good plans? There might be some special chocolate involved for the pregame.   
    May i recommend the ginger lime mule, it is my fav flavor by them now.

    I heard Swifty is jetting in from Japan as a surprise guest for the half time show where she endorses Brandon from the 50 while Brandon and Hunter sky dive and drop onto the field with parachutes, take the mic from Swifty and give a 5 minute speech on their accomplishments. 
    You say a lotta stupid shit but this one actually made me laugh. Bravo.

    Back in 1991 you could get a 40 oz of Old Milwaukee for $1 at the package store on the Norfolk Naval Station. We would buy an armful, drive to the beach by the base and get hammered.

    I’m in good company.

    In high school it was Bud Kingers or long necks, a six pack to a person. Or a keg. A six pack of kingers was $3. Girls drank Lowenbrau quickies and Southern Comfort. Miller High Life was the first beer I got drunk and puked on. Still can’t drink it to this day. A frat on the local campus had a soda machine where the Mellow Yellow button was no label cheap beer for $.25 a can. We’d sneak in and empty it out with quarters then sneak the beer into the $1.00 movie night on campus. As soon as the lights went down you’d hear beers opening and see joints and bowls sparking up. Good times.

    I have not had a beer in four years. But life is too short for shitty beer.
    In college I was too broke for anything but. 
    I managed a Pizza Hut in the first few years of college (Busch Gardens Pizza Hut!!).  The one advantage was unlimited food and beer supply.  There is also a very healthy barter market amongst restaurants and stores like that.  We would trade food for booze, weed, tickets to BG, etc.  There was a time, long ago, when Pizza Hut was good and expensive pizza. 
    I was a cook/driver back in the 90's. Long Live the Hut!
    Quick, mildly interesting story.  I managed one from 92 until like 95.  I think it was probably 93 when I hired this waitress.  She said her husband needed a job too, so he came in and I hired him as a driver.  Well it was Tim Petrovic, the PGA golfer.  He's on the senior tour now.  He had lost his Nike tour sponsor and was broke so he came to Tampa to work on his game.  We ended up becoming good friends and played a lot of golf together at the USF course.  What a stick he was and what a treat it was to play golf with him often.  He ended up having a decent career, won a few tournaments including the St Jude.  He's even better on the senior.  Last year I think he placed second at the US Senior Open.  And whenever he does well and on television, they will always talk about how he worked at pizza hut.  Next time they tell that story, you'll know I hired him.  
    very cool story

    That's really funny.  Also reminds me that 20 years ago, Oktoberfest was a good beer.  But now I think it tastes like shit.  Not sure if it changed when it went mass market or I did.  I feel the same way about Stella.  I used to think that was pretty good, but not anymore.  Also bought owned by In-Bev now.

    I was NEVER a beer snob. I'd drink anything that was cold. MGD, Bud, Lab Light, Blue, even the dreaded Winnipeg staple Club Beer. Now, I can barely stomach anything that's mass produced. Some of it literally tastes like nothing (Coors Light) and others taste like cold piss (anything Assheiser Gross). 

    And I don't like most of the "specialties" that all the crafties make. Eternal Sunshine. Mango Cosmos. Mexican Hot Chocolate. So I'm stuck with buying up all their lagers and ales, which seem to be getting made less and less. Everyone seems to go ga ga over this blueberry garbage, so the crafties keep shoving it out. 
    Flight Risk out NOW!

    I was NEVER a beer snob. I'd drink anything that was cold. MGD, Bud, Lab Light, Blue, even the dreaded Winnipeg staple Club Beer. Now, I can barely stomach anything that's mass produced. Some of it literally tastes like nothing (Coors Light) and others taste like cold piss (anything Assheiser Gross).

    Like you, I don't like the strange specialties.  

    My go to beer, always in the fridge is Jai Alai (IPA) from Cigar City Brewing.  Awesome beer.  The other one(s) I really enjoy are most any Starr Hill beers.  They are from Charlottesville so it's always in every store by me.  And their beers are named after classic rock like Grateful Ale, Ramble On, etc.  But I don't even drink beer or anything very often.  Give me an edible and I am much happier (and relaxed).

    In college we drank Milwaukee's Best (Beast) and Old Milwaukee (Old Mill Water).  Mainly because it was cheap.  I think you could get a case of Old Mill Water pounders for like $12 at the time at the small grocery store next door.  

    There was a group I would hang with sometimes that drank Ice House.  That was really bad beer with a strong/bad taste.



    Nowadays, I am mostly a craft beer guy and also like Semi-Dry Cider.  If I am in a situation where I know I am going to drink like 5+ beers, like a long tailgate or camping, I will go with what I call "marathon beers" like Coors Lite.  Bud Lite isnt terrible.  Molson Canadian Lite is fine as well as PBR.  


    I've often pontificated on what today's college youth are drinking. I'm sure it's still all the cheap shit we drank but there are soooo many better options these days than 25 years ago. 
    My son is a senior at a big school and in a frat.  They drink kegs like we did, shitty beer still.  But then he and his friends pre-gamed at my house on New Years Eve and they had some real garbage.  They were "craft" beers but all different sours.  They left like a case behind and I don't know what to do with them.  I can't bring it upon myself to throw away beer, but I also get annoyed with it in my garage fridge.  

    I have a 12 pack of "flavored" IPAs that have sitting in my garage for a year and a half. Hoping someone steals them.

    Hilarious and also true. I think the last time I had a beer is was a sculpin ale from ballast. It was good. Change that, it was Modelos cans out of a cooler before MMJ. Still have a few.

    I heard Swifty is jetting in from Japan as a surprise guest for the half time show where she endorses Brandon from the 50 while Brandon and Hunter sky dive and drop onto the field with parachutes, take the mic from Swifty and give a 5 minute speech on their accomplishments. 
    You say a lotta stupid shit but this one actually made me laugh. Bravo.
    and “you say a lot of stupid shit” made me laugh.

    Yeah I would go High Life over Bud any day of the week
    no, no, no, no, no! have you tasted it lately? my BIL brought over a 12 pack (cuz he’s a cheap ass) and we both agreed it was terrible. MGD, maybe, but not high life. they did have good commercials, tho, with the manly man - giving his lady a single rose in an empty high life bottle; putting butter on a steak and shaking his head as he watches a neighbor try, unsuccessfully, to back a trailer into his driveway .

    there’s only a few beers I might say no to - high life, montucky (cold snack), olympia and heineken.
