J Answers You: Your supermarket and you.

Howdy everyone, time for another J Answers You. Today I'll be talking about your local supermarket, even if I've never been there.

Now we all go to the supermarket to buy food, toothpaste, cat food and various other goods. Sometimes this includes beer. Sadly most supermarkets don't carry good beers. They generally only have what I like to call "watered-down piss" (the common folk may know these products as Bud, Coors and various other terrible non-beer beers).

Today's J Answers You is basically a public service announcement. Don't buy these beers. They are bad beers. They are bad beers. I know I wrote that twice, it's emphasis on how bad these beers are. See, the less people buy these, the more your local supermarket will look into selling other beers (because huge profit margins and all that). You can also always leave requests at your local supermarket asking them to encourage local brewers by retailing their products. This is how good beers get know.

So everyone, show your support for good beers. Remember to support your local brewers and not buy the over-commercialized crap that's being passed off as beer on TV.

PS: Due to a change in my schedule, updates will no longer be posted at 6pm, but later at night. Sorry guys, but work comes before drinking (I doubt my boss would be happy to see me reviewing beer at my desk).

  4. That's unfortunately true. It sucks, but I just don't see supermarkets selling real beer anytime soon.
    Oh well, at least they sell whiskey...

  6. Great advice for the areas that have only one or two main supermarkets that service the whole town.

  7. Well.. I agree that supermarkets should have more "good beer" as you say.

    But I must say that there is nothing wrong with a cold Heineken. It is not as good as some of the beers you review, but it doesn't taste bad and it is also cheaper. ;)

  13. You make a fine point, although most people actually ENJOY Bud and such other drinks. Bleh! My question is thus...What are your feelings on Guinness and Dos Equis. These are the only two I can really tolerate that I can get from a supermarket. Thoughts?

  14. I would've never thought to encourage the supermarkets to hold local beer, great idea.
