In Australia, we often see American movies and TV shows where the guys are sitting around drinking “Bud”. From what I can gather, that appears to be one of, if not the most popular beer you can get in the States.
So a friend of mine decided to try it out. We headed down to the “Bottle-o” and sure enough they had some Budweiser. Genuine, as it had ben imported.
I must say, it was a mighty fine beer. Very smooth, excellent flavor, an all round winner.
However, I noticed on the label that Budwesier claim to not know of any other brewer which spends as much money making their beer as Budweiser do.
“Huh?” I thought.
Which made me wonder if Budweiser was considered to be high quality lager, not just something drunk at the pub or when you have a few mates over.
So my question is, is Budweiser, in America, regarded as a high quality beer normally drunk on special occasions with a high price tag?
Or is it a very common, affordable beer that a lot of people drink regularly?
Sorry about the ramble, this post was a bit longer then I had anticipated.
