What I’m drinking …

There is an affliction upon American beer and it’s called “lite.”
It seems if folks drink beer they’re of two sorts. Those who are committed snobs who aren’t phased by paying $10 for a six pack of their favorite triple hopped, organic India Pale Ale, or those who only drink light beer.
To me, light beer is a bastardation. Why drink something that has had half of its flavor and character removed? But it seems as if Americans only see Budweiser and Coors as Bud or Coors lite. I’m a lover of just straight, Coors “banquet beer” in the yellow can. The refreshing Pilsner style hasn’t lost any of its malt foundation that is accentuated by the hops and a refreshing finish that has a note of saffron.
Sure, I’ve had plenty of “lites” on hot days but if you’re really going to drink beer, have a real beer.  What makes it lite is that it’s been diluted by water and you’re going to end up drinking twice as much to feel just as buzzed.

Your grandfather didn't drink lite beer and what did he do? He won World War II.
