When I was a kid, I had a problem with being easily sucked into magazine polls: the type article where you answer 17 questions, then find out that you'll turn into a serial killer, have tooth cancer, Socialist tendencies, a liking for cheap frozen pizza or maybe just cheap beer....
That tropism crops back up occasionally, and I think this Deadspin ranking triggered it:
It's not a poll, per se — actually I don't know how they came up with it — but it caught my eye because regular Coors is ranked 3rd out of 36 "cheap American" beers. I've never had #1 or 2, or really a lot of them. But I've had a lot of cheap Coors in cans, especially when I could get 18 or 24 cans for, say, $12. Michael Jackson — no, not that dead one, this dead one — kind of agreed with me, giving the lowly beer two stars in one of his beer books, which was better than most any other widely available American "premium" lager I could find listed in there.
But almost everyone I know hates Coors, even when they prefer, say, PBR or Bud or whatever. I don't get that, but it's ok. De gustibus non est disputandum. If you like something, good. If you like it and it's cheap, or good for you, or easy to make, great. If all of the previous are true, you should find a way to live off whatever that substance is. ;)
Hope you all had a great 4th of July, and had plenty of cheap beer. :-D
