Time to boycott Leinenkugel's

The retired head of the Jacob Leinenkugel Brewing Co. is joining President Donald Trumpís administration as an adviser on veterans issues.

The Department of Veterans Affairs confirmed Tuesday that Jake Leinenkugel had accepted a position as a senior White House adviser at the VA.

Leinenkugel served as a captain in the U.S. Marine Corps and is the father of two veterans. His brother, Dick, says the job will allow Jake Leinenkugel to make an impact on those who served their country.

1. Why would you even need to boycott Leinenkugel?

Their stuff is vile, wretched, disgusting filth.

4. It's hard to pick a favorite beer, but very easy to pick a least favorite beer!

And that one I don't even need to think about - it's Leinenkugel's Summer Shandy. To call it beer is an insult to beer.

5. It's sweet swill, designed to mask the flavor of alcohol

so that, perhaps, you can get an unsuspecting lass drunk out of her gourd.

There's two problems with this:

1.- Would you want to date a girl that is so dumb as to fall for this ruse?

2.- If she did fall for this ruse, are you the type of animal that would take advantage of her?

Either way, it is a losing proposition.

2. It's nasty, mass produced swill anyways.

Lienenkugel is owned by InBevSABMillerCoors anyways. There's far better beer you can get and there's far better beer in Wisconsin you can get.

9. No offense.....

But Wisconsin can't hold a candle to the West Coast as far as beer.

The mid-west is synonymous with macro-lager swill that belongs in frat-houses.

11. New Glarus and Central Waters both have some beers that will rival pretty much anything

coming from the West Coast.

3. If you had told me in 1971 that Leinenkugel's would still be around in 2017 and so many other beers

would not, I would have laughed in your face.

And have avoided their swill ever since

7. How ridiculous to stop drinking a beer because their retired

CEO takes a job for Trump. Nothing about his qualifications, he just isn't any good because he takes a job.
Is there some reason he wouldn't be qualified for the job? He was a US Marine Captain and father of two veterans.
This extreme partisanship is destroying the country. I have some of their October Fest in the fridge, it is just a good
or better than many other beers and it is made in the USA.

8. Leinenkugel's is part of the giant SABInbevMillerCoors conglomerate.

It's mass produced swill no matter if their founder is shilling for Trump or not. Crappy beer is crappy beer. If you want I can definitely point you in the direction of much better beer, and there's much better beer brewed locally in every state in this great country of ours.
