Budweiser sends a cease and desist - and are very cool about it

Budweiser tries to keep things fun by issuing a cease and desist through a town crier.

Edit: Clearer and higher quality on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/modistbrewi...9474706456277/ I hate facebook, so for those that insist on watching it on youtube, a ****ty quality version is below until I can find a better one

Yes, only craft beers are classy.

Oddly, the majority of craft beers are actually made by the big breweries.
ie Bud makes some really good beers, like Elysian, Goose Island, etc.

Its kinda a good/bad thing. Its good in that being owned by InBev makes those brands much easier to acquire with a much higher distribution. But, InBev is doing some sneaky things like buying up the total supply of certain hop strands so that other non-InBev craft beers have no access.

Budweiser is a ripoff anyways.

Not that the Czech stuff is much better to be honest.

At this point there isn't a "Bud" product that I like much, not even their "micro brews" that I know of. Though if I find one so be it. Good beer is good beer.

THink I'm hard on In-Bev, not get me started on this horrible IPA craze with the local craft brews.

Sadly, I imagine that a large car with tinted windows showed up, and a man in a suit handed Him a letter and leaned in to whisper something in his ear.

My brother, best friend, and his father in law all work for them. I get all that stuff cheap. They also own 10 Barrel which used to be an OR local beer.

Try living in OR. I swear local small brewers make it a point to try to have the bitterest IPA. I went to a local brew fest and I swear I had to scrape 7 beers off my tongue.

I mean, good beer is good beer. Drink it and enjoy it, that's all that needs to be done. Just recently went to a pseudo-bachelor party for my now brother-in-law with his friends as they dropped the ball on planning him a real bachelor party. Ended up at one point in the night going to a craft beer bar in PA, and I swear to you, that was the worst bar I've ever been in. Sure, there are some good craft beers out there, but I mean seriously, I really wanted to punch one of his buddies because I couldn't stand any of those awful craft beers at that bar, and he was being a snob about craft beer vs mass produced beer. I personally enjoy a lot of the AB brews (and if I'm going for big names, I'm a native St. Louis man, so AB is my home team), and I prefer being able to walk into just about any bar across the country and being able to find a beer I like.

Honestly, if you like a beer, drink it. Don't be like my brothers idiot friend and try telling people they shouldn't drink something just because its mass produced or its a craft brew.

As a home brewer, I do admire Budweiser. Now, don't get me wrong, I do not care for it, nor will I drink it unless there is only Coors Light or bad tap water, and I would taste the tap water first, but I do admire what they have. Think I am crazy? Try brewing the same beer twice and have it come out exactly the same. Then try to do it all across the globe. So, I admire what they can do.
