First thing I did was to cut the newsgroup headers so this only shows up in alt.beer.
Steve's response is sinister. Chris has come to realize that swill is not worth drinking. I will not drink either French Wines or Sam Adams. I am boycotting both for political reasons. The French were gutless and two-faced over the invasion of Iraq. Sam Adams is brewed in the most liberal State in the Union.
If you live in the mid-west (as in MN. MO, WI, IL, KY. MI, IN, OH, or PA), you can buy Bell's Beer. It is an excellent family of beers. Larry Bell started 20+ years ago as a LHBS (Local Home Brew Store) and today is Kalamazoo Brewing Co. Go to beeradvocate.com and see how many of Bell's beers are rate 4.0 or higher on a 5 point scale. They are awesomely great brewers.
Now if you live driving distance to Delaware, there Dogfish Brewing Company.
You need to go to BJCP.org and read the beer styles so you can see how low on the totem pole Bud and Rolling Rock are and how much higher you want to go.
Also go to Beeradvocate.com and see how various beers were rated by reviewers.
I no longer drink beer unless I go to a bar or a party. I have no taste for wine and prefer rum and coke over everything except a Rusty Nail and Jack Daniel's Single Barrell.
I brew Mead - the Nectar of the Gods. My initial investment in equipment is about $200. My cost per gallon about $7 and maybe less. Behind me is an awesome Maple Wine Mead (costing me about $12 a gallon and worth every penny), a Chocolate Peppermint mead (about $5/gallon), and a Spearmint Mead (about $4.50/gallon) which is going to help me sleep tonight.
Go to your LHBS and talk with them. They have a vested interest in your repeat business. You might like homebrewing beer. It beats the hell out of drinking swill.

Since when do they brew Sam Adams in Vermont? All us socialists drink Long Trail (altho' I suppose one could say they take their orders from the Kremlin down in Boston, these days...)

Oh, yeah? Which beer? Aren't most of them called Bell's? Do they have a Big Bill Haywood Stout or a Emma Goldman Porter or Gene Debs Bock or what?

Sam Adams has served as a "gateway beer" for many people. It's much better than most mass produced beers. It's not nearly as good as many craft brewed beers, but you have to start somewhere. Guinness is better, especially on draft.

Whilst Bush exhibited extraordinary courage in blasting the #### out of a crippled nation, killing thousands of innocents and breeding countless thousands of new terrorists. Of course his decision wasn't two-faced. Twas WMD it was. They're still hiding them they are.

Sam > Adams is brewed in the most liberal State in the Union. Dick, you're an idiot. Sam Adams has been brewed in several states, including a company-owned brewery in Ohio. I assume, since you don't touch products made by parties hostile to the USA (you gumheaded patriot, you) that you of course eschew all consumption of petroleum products, or at least that portion coming from, say, Saudi Arabia and Venezuela, not to mention the bastion of eeeevil liberulizm, Canada.

Yup, Bell's, located in yet another "blue" state, and dang if they don't have a beer named after one o' them gosh-durned pro-labor socialist commies. Better spit out that last mouthful and boycott them too. > I no longer drink beer unless I go to a bar or a party.

You could've stopped with "I have no taste" and still written an accurate sentence. HTH. HAND. -- dgs

Right... the "Red" state that handed GWB the victory?
p.s. The brewery is nearbt... om Central Parkway in Cin. City... it's the old Schoenling Brewery (which Sam Adams gained via backstabbing Schoenling).

So, does Little Kings Cream Ale still exist? If so, who's brewing it? I haven't been able to follow the whole Snider-Fredrick bankruptcy thing.
(Had a friend move to Ohio and I'd sure like to get ahold of some LK's for nostalgia sake- one of my favorite pre-micro age beers.)

Frederick is actually in pretty decent shape now, and a big part of the reason is Little Kings. It's evidently selling like a sumbitch in the Midwest and Oklahoma, they're even shipping it to Canada now. Drink up. I, uh...I kinda like the stuff myself.
