Befuddled Larry Kudlow Rails That Biden Will Force Americans To Guzzle 'Plant-Based Beer'

Now that Donald Trump’s former economic adviser Larry Kudlow has taken his words of wisdom from the White House to Fox News, he wants the nation to know that President Joe Biden is plotting to force Americans to drink “plant-based beer.”

Egads. Apparently the man who declared COVID-19 “contained close to airtight” before more than 570,000 Americans died is not talking about the beer everyone drinks now. That’s typically made from grains, hops and yeast — and not an ounce of steak. (Additives may include animal products, like gelatin, but beer is definitely plant based.)

The bonkers brewhaha was part of Kudlow’s raging criticism on Fox Business Friday against the proposed Green New Deal, which he claimed would end the country’s consumption of meat, eggs, cheese and dairy. None of that’s true; there’s nothing in the text of the plan that would ban those products. (Check out Kudlow’s rant beginning in the video above at 0:55.)

Nevertheless, he insisted that Americans would be left to “grill” Brussels spouts on July Fourth (which are apparently bad not only because they’re vegetables but also because they first became popular in Brussels, so they aren’t very nativist) and drink that horrible beer.

What kind of beer isn't made from plant products?

5. Barley and Hops

Beer is made from plants.

Water, barley, and hops.

Unless it's budweiser. In which case it's water, rice, and hops.

This is ignorant fear mongering.


ETA: Grilled sprouts sounds pretty good to me.

I will never, ever, give up my plant-based beer!

8. All hooch is plant based, no?

grain alcohol has gain.

Vodka? potatoes.

Wine? Grapes.

Gin? Juniper berries.

Pruno? prunes.

I mean, seriously? Next, we'll have to suffer with our plant based cigarettes and cannabis...

9. Yeah, I don't think he thought about it that hard.

The GOP brief is, no doubt, 'oppose the Green New Deal', even if you have to make up the reason why.

Got thrown on the grill.
They were amazing, sweetest carrots I've ever had.
Try it.

If it was straight rice, it would be a rice wine, not beer.

14. I realize that this is not the point of this thread,

but grilled brussel sprouts are delicious. Grilled asparagus as well, come to think of it. As a matter of fact, most veggies are better grilled. Not iceberg lettuce, but romaine, sure.

19. Plant based no yeast?

Since technically yeast aren't plants (they're in their own kingdom). But I doubt Larry knows that. And yeast definitely aren't animals.

20. +1 -- without yeast, beer based only on plants would be pretty poor

No alcohol or carbonation.

Sure some stouts have fish and oyster products in them but all beer is made from grains with some additives like fruits.

I'd be curious to try at least a couple of them, at least to say I've tried them!

31. There is

a sorghum-based beer, which is surprisingly pretty good. It's for people who have to be gluten-free, like my friend Stuart. I stumbled on it at our local Kroger, which has a "mix-your-own" 6-pack for $9.99. I like that so I can try various varieties. I tried the stuff and liked it pretty well.
