Well, I guess I have to quit drinking Molson Ice
Now that Molson has decided to merge with Coors, I quit.

I've boycotted Coors for years, because of their funding of right-wing causes and the Heritage Foundation, and other things.

18. Molson XXX (pretty new) has even more punch
...and I'll be saying goodbye to that too. Been drinking Rolling Rock and the Sam Adams' seasonals ever since the merger was proposed. (Are those DU-approved?)

14. I recently switched...
to a german beer called Tucher. Man, talk about killer stuff, I highly recommend it. They have a Crystal (light), Hefe Wiezen (heavy wheat) and Dunkles (dark) beer, with the Wheat beer being my favorite. Very smooth, and thick and just yummy.

15. The good news is that Unibroue
is still running it's own show, despite being bought out by Sleemans...Molson's is pony pee anyway...

Drink REAL beer - like Fin du Monde, or Maudite, or Blanche de Chambly, Don de Dieu, 1837, etc...

Apart from the alcohol content, I cannot see any difference between any beer made by Labatt's or Molson's and American horse pee brewed by Busch or Coors or Schlitz...

19. How about home brewing?
I don't think it can get much fresher than that.

17. Mary Cheney to the rescue!
But, but... she's a LESBIAN!!!! How cool is that? Support Lesbians! Drink COORS!!!

Seriously- here on the east coast, I prefer Sam Adams and Yeungling in all their tasty varieties.
