Every Wednesday and Saturday afternoon my neighborhood booze store has a wine tasting. I like to go just because I drink so much beer and like to mix it up a little. However we found out that this Saturday they were going to be doing a beer tasting. I got excited and asked which brewery was coming. "Molson," he said. I thought he was kidding, really. He always has great wines to try, but for some reason he let the Molson guy come in to give a tasting. Of course, my brother and I had to go. Not to enjoy it, but to make sure to tell Molson how bad of beer they produced. Yes, I'm a jackass.
So we go and there he is, Mr. Molson. Actually, he didn't know his ass from a hole in the ground so I guess he wasn't the actual Mr. Molson. One of his discriptions said that Mens Health rated Molson Light the best light beer in America. First of all, Molson is Canadian. Dumb. And when we asked him about this he said, "Oh, well what they meant was the light beer with the least amount of carbs." Dumb. Does that now mean "best." If that's the case I'm going to make a candy bar with the least amount of carbs and claim it is the best. We then asked the Molson rep what the difference was between Molson and Molson golden. "Well, the Molson Golden has a slightly more golden hue. And it is in a green bottle." Dumb again. Great, you added some food coloring and put it in a bottle that lets more light in to damage the beer. But, its good for marketing. How about you get your head out of your ass and put that marketing money into making beer that is worth a crap.
