So the Stephanie Miller Show was discussing Philip Seymour Hoffman’s tragic death recently, and one of the guests was explaining the dangers of heroin. How with heroin, you never quite know what you’re injecting into yourself, or how good/pure/lethal it might be. And then she made the comparison to alcohol–when you see Bud in the store, you always know what you get, and there’s no such thing as bad Bud.
As a beer lover, I feel I have to correct that statement…it would be more accurate to say that Bud is always bad. In fact, Bud is always terrible. However, I agree that it’s terrible in a way which is consistent, and which won’t kill me. It will also never shock me by tasting like a delicious craft brew when I open one up. And while Bud isn’t dangerous, you might waste your life drinking bad beer…a fate not much better than death, in my opinion.
