This is me tonite on this the most depressing day in St. Louis history. In-Bev bought out A-B. Booh. I used to be a Bud Light fan. I now find myself lost in the beer world. I WILL NOT purchase another Bud Light in my lifetime. Yes, a bold statement, but I have principles. I cannot be bought out. I have no clue what beer I will be drinking in the future. I suppose this just gives me a great reason to be drinking in the coming weeks. I HAVE to drink to find one I like. Man, I can rationalize anything. No, I'm not an alcoholic. I just like the taste of beer.
I hear so many different stories. A-B had to sell because they were losing money, cutting jobs, etc. On the other side, I have heard experts say a lot of jobs will be cut even with In-Bev buying them out. I seem to recall something similar when TWA was taken over.
I do have a couple of Bud Lights left. If it weren't so late, I would drink one and savor what was once a great part of St. Louis tradition. Yeah, a little cheesy, but don't mess with a bitches brew!!!
