Damn, that remindes me of early Air Force Years in Oklahoma City ~ That's all we could get, too!

Thank you but I'll support a product that is owned/made here.
Didn't know that Ratman! Thanks for the information!

If you look you'll only see SAB. Which stands for South African Brewery. Bud was sued by Miller because technically the corporation name is SAB and Bud couldn't say South Africa they had to refer to the legal entity name (SAB). So Bud had to pull it's commercials. Unless you read it in the business section (how I found out), Miller doesn't want it's consumers to know.

Yes Miller is owned by a foreign brewery, but they employ a LOT of Americans in several regions of the country. More Americans are employed by their distributers.

Also, the Miller breweries brew lots of beer not associated with the Miller label. You may be drinking some of it witout knowing.

I finished the last two Budweiser Select's last night and here is my opinion of AB's new beer.

1. Tasteless
2. No Head
3. Appeared to be flat
4. AB, stick with making Michelob Ultra.
