There have been plenty of occasions where I’ve been lit by 11:15 am… Those instances are becoming more and more rare but…..

That's actually an excellent analogy. And it's about twice the price.

When I was in Dublin I noticed they had Budweiser on tap at all the pubs…. I asked one of the owners and he said it was one of the top 3 sellers.. Blew my mind… I wonder if it’s the same when I order a Stella over there.

Wow. Budweiser has been brewed in Ireland at the St. Francis Abbey Brewery for some time now, but I had no idea they had achieved such market penetration.

I'm with ya on that.

and I definately agree about Brooklyn Lager. Some brewpubs do a good job with lagers, too. Capitol City Brewery and Restaurant, for instance, has a nice Oktoberfest lager that I enjoyed recently. Incidentally, Cap City belgian style beers tend to be pretty good.

I had the same experience in Ireland and was just as surprised as you were. Kind of funny to see Bud considered a drink of choice in a land of such fine beer.

If al I drink is 90 Minute IPA (at least for now), does that make me Joe 4 Pack?

Hmm, I'm sort of surprised you guys like the Brooklyn Lager so much. I thought it was a good beer, but lacked something.. maybe it was the meal I was eating. I'll have to give it another try when the opportunity presents itself.

Have you tried the Summit Pilsener? I'd be interested to hear your thoughts.

As for the Stella, it drinks fine, but doesn't move me.

Since the company that brews Stella Artois (InBev) just bought Anheuser-Busch, I would Imagine that the company's flagship Belgian brew will be seen more and more places with the AB distributors behind them.

Not necessarily. A-B has been the importer of most of the European InBev beers sold in the US since Feb. 2007 and they were being distributed by A-B's wholesalers in most cases already (some states have restrictive laws about changing distributors).

The A-B subsidiary is called "Import Brands Alliance"- the name can be seen on the websites and labels on most of those brands (Bass, Beck's, etc) with a St. Louis, MO address.
