What a great video! Beer actually saved humanity and was the catalyst for many inventions! I loved the video and surprisingly so did my wife, who hates beer!

I had their Pumpkin Harvest Moon Ale and it was awesome.

When in doubt I reach for Boston Lager, though the owner is a flaming liberal. But at least it is owned by an American company unlike Bud, Miller or Coors.

Bro, you do the same math that I do when beer shopping.

Unless I've already had a few. Then its only 2 questions?

"What do I really like?"
And
"What is closest?"

I’m surprised that the Dem’s are more into the beers with flavor. I make a mean Dry Irish Stout that blows the skunky Guinness out of the water.

The real trick here is to use nitrogen rather than co2 to charge it.

Isn’t Boston Beer Co is the outfit that had a publicity stunt where they paid for a couple to have sex in a church during services? That says they are a very left wing company.

I’ll take Yeongling (sp?) over that. They threw the Teamsters out.

Finally, one of these “beer brand vs. politics” charts that seems to get it mostly right. The upper right-hand corner should be reserved for “my own brew”.

I have order La Bohemia beer at the mex restaurants around here “No limon” as they are programmed to put a lime slice in any bottled mex beer.

What total, vapid, utter nonsense. I fit the “any microbrew” category...as the rest isn’t really beer.

However I have never even considered voting “D.”

I don't normally drink beer. Normally, I have a mixed drink or a hard cider. I guess that means I'm unAmerican or third party.
If I do drink beer domestic, It's a Blue Moon, Harpoon IPA, or Michelob Ultra. That is unless, I'm at a descent bar or beer garden, in which case, I have a Hoegaarden, Krusovice Dark or a Krusovice Light or another Eastern European Beer. It's Oktoberfest, so I guess I'll be having German ones.

I seldom pay for my own beer. Either I’m somewhere with an open bar or at a party or a friend’s.

My three go-to beers are Coors Light (almost always available, inoffensive), which makes me a mildly high-turnout extreme skew Republican, Heinecken (preferred over Coors Light, but not everyone springs for Dutch beer), which makes me a mildly low-turnout extreme skew Democrat, and Yeungling (my favorite watering hole has this free on-tap and my wife likes it, too), which makes me non-existent.

LOL.

The last beer I bought was Yeungling. Back in July. Still have most of it lying around.
