“For the red, white, and blue, and the freedom we deserve.”
It might be a fridge-essential, a tailgate hit, the perfect Beirut can, or an off-the-beaten-path brew. Maybe it came from a large production company, a local microbrewery, or from over the oceans.
The only common denominator is that it has to be beer. So crack open that cold one in your hand and listen in, maybe just maybe I’ll sway you onto your new favorite American pastime.
Beer of the Week:
Anheuser-Busch Natural Light
Oh yes, the Beer of the Week is that $13-for-a-30-rack, tastes-like-cat-piss, luke-warm, for-drinking-games-only can of crap know by college kids as Natty Light. So why has a beer snob like myself chosen such a crappy brewskie? Because Matty D and the Thunderdome crew are up at college experiencing the incredible weekend that is the Lehigh-Lafayette Rivalry football game. This is #149 between these two schools and we can’t wait for Saturday. But Friday night will be a rambunctious soiree featuring Natty Light and her other awful beer brethren. Anyone who has lived the college dream will tell you that Natty Light is the way to go: it’s cheap, it’s easy to drink, you can put it in a tall boy, a can, or a keg, and its only 4.2% so you can have way too many. So this week’s Beer Corner is all about raising a glass of craft brew to that shit you drank in college. It is associated with life’s fondest memories!
If any readers or tweeters have any advice on beers to spotlight, give me a shout. Remember, America was built on beer and don’t let anyone tell you differently.
Never stop being merry!Matty D
