Not Your Father's Rootbeer has been the story of the summer for us. It is amazing, we get a truck load in and it sells out in two days (1.300 cases). We are holding our breath that this product does not lose its mojo at once and we get stuck with product. For now, we will ride the wave until it ends.

It amazes me how crazy people are going over this stuff. But, I hope you sell all of it.

Does no one drink these mass-produced beers, or is everyone just too embarrassed to admit it?


If given the choice between Bud, Bud Light or Coors, I'll opt for a glass of water.
Ok, I have something to admit. My son's friend left a Coors Light in my fridge from last night. Please don't think less of me, but I think I may drink it. If so, I will post a note tomorrow.

I suppose it would be akin to posting plonk in the 'what are you drinking' threads. Sometimes a lite, gutless beer is refreshing when some OTT craft beer might be a bit much, like at a beach, pool, after mowing the grass, moving, etc. But who's gonna brag about it?

I still enjoy a Coors lite from time to time (or a C-minus, as GlennK so amusing referred to it in a thread a while back) or a Pacifico, or whatever sitting in an ice chest...when it's hot, one craft beer can be too much when 5 Tecates are just right.

Totally agree. I spent a hot, dusty day yesterday helping my mom move a half house's worth of stuff into and out of her storage locker (as in she watched while I moved) and three Coors Banquets hit the spot.

I think it's been a couple years since they've made it. Who knows if it'll come back in some form.


That sucks. Indybob introduced me to this, my favorite of their beers.

I do think their 2013 was the last I had.

Some of their beers are still pretty good, the problem is they used to produce Great beer. Read up on the new AB/IB CEO, he's is slashing quality ingredients in all their offerings making him a darling on Wall Street and the bane of microbrew fans everywhere.
