    I understand the difference between a German Lager and an American Adjunct Lager....

    Really that comes down to a flavorful grist comprised purely of lightly malted barley (I am a big fan of Bavarian Pilsner malt). With the American Adjunct variety, you're dealing with pilsner malt and a good percentage of either rice or corn. Now, contrary to what you may have been told, this isn't done to save money. It can be even more expensive using these adjuncts. As far as brewing technique, it's every bit the standard of German brewing. In fact, Lager beer brewing in America came from German immigrants.

    These kind of light beers wouldn't even be able to be brewed in Germany anyways thanks to the Reinheitsgebot also known as the "German Beer Purity Law" which in all actuality was just a taxation law.

    lol @ snobby beer drinkers

    "You pussy that's only ##% alcohol"

    You look like morons. I could drink you under the table with moonshine, that doesn't mean I have better taste than you. Dumb mother fuckers

    How about you just enjoy what you drink and don't worry about other people? There's a thought.

    Doesn’t seem like that could be true. In what areas are most of the bud, miller, and coors lite consumed?

    Liberal hipsters make the most heavyweight beer. It's conservatives that love the bud light.

    When I was in Seattle visiting my classmate his friends were all drinking pussificated beers. Southerners drink real beers not watered down stuff.

    People in Seattle don’t drink craft beers? I tend to think that town has a lot of breweries. I’d guess that in rural areas, a higher percentage of watery Miller/Bud/Coors is consumed in comparison to craft beers.

    Plus southerners are poor, uneducated and unindustrious, so they probably have neither the market not the expertise to support a craft brewing scene.

    Ha come on now. I’m originally from the South (I wisely relocated), and there are some great brewing areas and beer scenes in the South. Namely Asheville, NC (which is super liberal) and Richmond, VA.

    I’ll say that it seems areas that are more liberal do have much more craft beer consumption...probably due to there being more disposable income for buying the pricier stuff and more access in general.

    It's funny how people judge others based on their literal taste. Just shows how material and idiotic everyone in the world is. It's not just America.
