    We have too many fucking beer snobs and hipsters here in the USA. It all started in the 1960s with the creation of "light" beer that gave America and its national beer great shame. Some guy created it to reduce the calories and alcohol content of beer. Similar to the guy who created "Tab" the first calorie free soda. Where everyone is suddenly watching their waistline. Especially here in the states. Well other countries said fuck light beer you pansies. And for the longest time they didn't make it and even when they did it was still stronger than our light beer. Hence why everyone says American beer is piss, it sucks, it's weak. It's because of the invention of light beer that soiled our named. Which was created by an American. Owades was his name. He created it in 1967.

    While everything you said it true... I still find it humorous that we have the greatest diversity of beers ever created right this moment, and people are still all "But.... but.... Coors Light!" as if the entirety of our vast beer catalog ceases to exist because a 99 calorie beer does. It's the most backwards way of looking at a rather simple topic.

    Like I said, I can go to a theater and have dozens of great beers on tap, and not have the option to get a shitty ass corporate light beer served in anything other than a can. At this very moment the US is basically a beer mecca where you can find pretty much anything type of beer imagined, but people still come back to "but it's water... rofl!" How dense can one be. My local supermarket has probably a hundred beers to pick from. You can even make your own 6 pack from a wall of craft brew choices.

    In the USA we have like a gazillion micro breweries. My local grocery store has an entire aisle dedicated to all the micro brews. It's ridiculous. A lot of these small micro brews are being bought out by the Budweisers and Miller's of the world too. Which that sucks. But people that say American beer sucks. Yeah probably our mainstream beers sure. But we have thousands of others to choose from all over the country. It's nuts.

    Personally it depends on what I'm in the mood for. If I want a beer for taste or a beer to get me drunk. Because the more flavorful the beer the more filling it is. I can't have a full course meal and then pound 4 pints of Guinness. It's just way to filling of a beer. I could have 2 pints. But I could fit 6 pints of Coors light.

    He probably can’t get a visa for Russia.

    Americans getting Russian visas is not easy, especially for his record.

    And he would need a work visa not a tourist visa there, it’s a pain in the Dick to get a Russian work visa as an American.

    Jimmy Smith is better anyway. Rogan has been regressing as a commentator the last few years imo.

    It is ridiculous, and seems like a bubble economy waiting to pop.... But still, anyone saying we don't have anything to offer besides shitty watered down beer clearly doesn't know jack shit about our beer market. We're in a golden age of beer in the US.

    The 'watered down' sentiment bothers me less because it's patently false, and more because it's a weak attempt at humor. It's the "so how's the weather" of alcohol talking points. Like if that's all one can add to convo.... just don't do it.

    No chance it happens in Russia

    To many variables, they will do it in a place they know, like you said most likely at MSG, slight chance it will be in Vegas and even slighter it will be in Dublin

    Russia is one of my favorite countries to work in.

    I could move to Siberia no issue and love it.
