Read this article to see what cost cutting on ingredients and brewing foreign beers in the USA have done to inconic brands over here. If these clowns get a hold of total ownership of Corona, you can kiss that one goodbye too.

I am not a connoisseur of beer; one might even infer I do not like it, and that is pretty much true. When it was imported from Germany, I liked Löwenbräu Dark beer. After some years, it might have been Budweiser. The owner of the restaurant where I used to drink it said it was then being manufactured in the Budweiser plant near Newark, NJ. I Switched to Beck's Dark and, while not as good as the old Löwenbräu, it was drinkable. Then it turned bad too. I pretty much gave up on beer in USA after that, though I had some almost custom made beer from a very small brewery some years ago that was very interesting -- a slight coffee aftertaste. I would not want it for every day though. When in Europe, I like the Belgian Duvel, but I have never seen it where I live. That is the one beer to have when you are having only one. One is enough at one sitting (alcohol content around 8%).
