Beer Madness! 24 (1)Bells Two-Hearted v. (16)Miller Lite

(1) Bells Two-Hearted
v.
(16) Miller Lite

Well, this match up should be a cake-walk. Miller Lite survived the play in game against Bud Light only to go against one of the stronger beers. That said, it all comes down to who shows up at game time: George W* (Beer Drinkers) or John Kerry (Beer Lovers) Fans.

Miller Lite comes from the old-beer-school North, has family connections with foreigners, but has appeal in most places, especially at sporting venues.

Also from the North, Bells Two-Hearted is substance over style and appeals to those who are more versed in the field of beer. People note that while it seems highfalutin, it actually has some very solid points that Miller Lite never seems to address. Unlike Miller Lite, Two-Hearted has worked pretty hard to build a solid reputation in the field and doesn’t rely on gimmicks to win over new fans, just a simple taste. Those that support Bells Two-Hearted are often blinded to the fact that Miller Lite is highly favored in the large Southern States, where Two-Hearted is seen as aloof.  Two-Hearted backers claim that it’d have broader appeal if people would just give it a try.

Out of this, I gotta go with the higher seed, Bells Two-Hearted, and pray that NASCAR dads do not show up to the polls this time.

*Yes, Bush Jr was a reformed alcoholic and doesn’t drink beer. Also, he’s from Connecticut.


Brew Review-Miller Genuine Draft

“It’s all that was left in the fridge.”

The age-old defense for bad beer selection. We’ve all heard it and most of us have probably used it more than a few times ourselves.

Well I’d like to write today in defense of “all that was left.” Is this because I think it’s a legitimate excuse? Yes. Is this because I went to write a brew review and only had MGD in my fridge? That too. So in honor of the legitimacy of drinking a beer because you didn’t have something better, I’ll treat this review with all due respect.

Ballpark Brews: Miller Lite

Natinals

This is the first of a series of posts about beers you can find at the ballpark.  As you can see this post is starting with a common beer…Miller Lite.  Yes, I shelled out $8 for a 16oz can of ML (well many more than one, but that’s besides the point) but it can hit the spot on a hot evening with its cool refreshing taste.  Wait, check that…I am still waiting for any of the hops from the “triple hopped brewing process.”  I expect no less from a Miller Lite, but I hope to find better from the ballpark in the future. Strasburg for the win.
