For those of you keeping score at home, I have decided that Miller Lite is a much better beer than Budweiser Select. Yes, for those of us that buy cheap light beer, this sort of revelation is important.
I am a fan of beer; good beer. So long time readers often wonder why I bother to drink cheap beer, typically of the ‘ght’ variety. For one thing, cheap is good. More money in my pocket is a good thing. Why would I not want to get a 30 pack of Miller Lite at Sam’s Club for what amounts to $0.55 a beer? I can use the extra coin to buy more junk food or better yet, just not spend so much money on beer. Who am I kidding; the extra money goes towards all the wonderful junk food or even more cheap beer.
I typically buy something good (say SweetWater 420 Pale Ale) to sprinkle in amongst the various cheap light beer in my cupboard. At the end of the day, I can drink more cheap beer, guilty free – cheap is good, and a light beer makes me feel like I am doing ‘the right thing’ while I am drinking beer.
I am probably not making much sense, but that is excusable, at least in the mind of a sleep deprived dad. No I am not drunk (yet). Getting back on topic, the Budweiser Select seemed like a better deal at $0.48 a beer, but it just does not taste all that great. I am not even sure what is ‘select’ about this beer. This is possibly the worst cheap light beer that I have purchased in the last couple of years.
When it comes to cheap beer, Miller Lite is a better choice. I know Budweiser Select is competing against Michelob Ultra, but that is beside the point. We will discuss other cheap beers later.
