Protesting a beer plant? What is the world coming to? They do say that the future wars will indeed be over water.

Where is Dennis to pipe in here? He would surely have something to say.....you are missed!

Read the whole story.
It is a US company, and its product (simulated Mexican cerveza) will be shipped to US markets.

I always suspect the brewskis that we buy up here are re-formulated for a Gringo taste bud.

Maybe it is the environment, but Pacificos just don't taste the same when I buy them at our US markets.

They are different. AB-InBev ownes Groupo Modelo but was forced to sell off the Corona, Modelo and Pacifico brands in the US market to Constellation to satisfy US antitrust regulators.

I do SO love Pacifico's but pretty much only drink them in Baja.

Makes them kinda special.....

Same thing I found way back in my Navy day's
Upon returning from a WestPac I drank some USA San Miguel beers WAY different then in the Philippines...

Also the alcohol content was lower..

Making an Impact


A more effective protest would be jumping off the crane.

THAT would draw attention.

I always thought that those Viet Buddists were on to something when they'd do their "Crispy Critter" routine.

THEY knew how to entertain.

I bought some San Miguel a few years back at Trader Joes.
Ended up saving it and feeding it to visitors... it was dreadful.
I buy both Pacifico and Modelo here at our Central Cal Costco but it is not much better than that dreadful stuff from Bud and Miller

Stella's the ONE


Having "thought" that I'd never have reason to buy any beer other than Heineken or Steinlager (which became difficult to find), awhile back someone here (to whom I'm grateful), suggested that I had to try Stella Artois.

I did. And, everything else is history. No reason to buy ANY other beer.

Not impressed with the mass-produced lagers and pilsners on either side of the border. Pale ales and IPAs, good on occasion, but just too high calorie for frequent drinking or pounding multiple beers at a time.. For freshness on hot day, can't beat gin and tonic, and it's fairly low calorie.

Real men drink GOOD c-cktails. Knuckledraggers drink beer. :lol::lol::lol::lol:

Gin Drinkers


"Gin!... I knew there was something wrong with that guy. I never met a gin drinker yet that you could trust".

Anatomy of a Murder 1959.

-----------------------------------

While trust wasn't an issue, my first wife (at 16) LOVED straight Gin.

Which I never could figure out, but I was fond of Scotch in those (1960s) days.

Which she thought foul-tasting.
