Milwaukee's What?


I was on my way to meet some friends for drinks and dinner tonight when I found myself behind an 18-wheeler that was transporting a beer called Milwaukee’s Best.

I’m still trying to figure out why southeast Texas would need a whole 18-wheeler full of Milwaukee’s Best beer. I’ve never seen anybody drink one in a bar or restaurant or at a football game or house party. I’ve never heard anyone enthusiastically scream, “Stan’s here and he brought Milwaukee’s Best! Woo hoo! It's a party, now!”

My guess is that the truck was really full of the rest of Willie’s marijuana. Even the cops wouldn’t pull over a truck full of Milwaukee’s Best.

It has the advantage of being cheap. But no cheaper than Old Milwaukee, and not as good.

This is a cheap ass beer. We used it to play quarters when we were almost broke or way at the end of th enight when we couldn't tell how bad it was.

Jack, LilFeathers and Zina - That explains why people are too embarrassed to drink it in a bar.

We have some friends from MN/WI who all buy this crap. And I do mean CRAP. It is foul, foul stuff!

Your erudite readers have nailed it. Cheap and nasty.

It leaves you with the worst headaches and lower GI issues. Natty Ice is much better if you're going for a ridiculously cheap beer buzz.

Kaci, Sophmom, La Sirena - I think I need to start a beer blog. My readers are very beer knowledgeable. Big surprise. :)

I wouldn't even call it beer. I know a few alcoholics that partake of it quite often because it has alcohol in it and its cheap. I think that it probably feeds the unhealthy habits of underage kids and alcoholics and not many others. If you're interested in more beer, food, wine, etc. check out my blog on southeast texas food at beaumontfoody.blogspot.com

I'll have a few beer blogs with reviews of St. Arnold's latest release (a micro-brewery in Houston).

Thanks Laurie.
