Today’s links include the answer to that age-old question, “Would a rock FM station use an unrelated glamour shot to lure readers into a story about beer naming rights?” Hint: Yes.

  1. Nice round-up, Smiley Brown. You’re a true hero, you know. Not many Aleheads could have slogged through that Women’s Health Magazine article. When a post lists Miller Chill as the best beer their panel tested, you know you’re out of your element…

  2. Miller Chill has the distinction of being the only beer that I ever did an honest-to-God spittake with.

  3. To be fair, Miller Chill tastes only slightly better than Bud Light Lime.

    I’ll tell you what- when my Big Beer Boys pull something from the market in my area, sometimes that is a blessing! Good-bye Michelob wanna be fruity flavorless piss! When my customers bemoan their disappearance, I commiserate with them just a smidge, pause, then turn them onto craft beers with fruit adjuncts. I’m proud to say that I’ve made quite a few converts that don’t look back! It’s good to be the beer wench! ;p
