A Light in the Darkness

Not the world's greatest week, but capped off with belated fine news from a couple weeks back -- Anheuser-Busch has agreed to market and distribute Budvar/Czechvar in the U.S.

There's good and bad to this. On the bad, screw Anheuser-Busch all over the place -- I feel bad knowing that I'm going to be contributing money to them, however indirectly. But on the good, I would bet this means that ol' Greg's gonna be able to buy one of his favorite beers again. And Alanah and Jes won't be able to mock me any more.

The linked post says they're sticking with the Czechvar name here. I actually think it'd be a good move for A-B to go with Budvar or Budweiser -- people would start wondering "hey, when did this stuff turn good?"

When have I ever mocked you? That's just crazy talk. In fact, I believe our most recent conversation on the subject had you mocking my newly-acquired beer allergy.

And that was just... cruel.

Ewwww, Budvar teaming with Busch? Talk about sleeping with the devil.

Yes, I can just imagine JimBob down in Kentucky wondering why it costs twice as much for Budweiser and wondering how can beer taste so good?

Until we get Staropramen, I won't rag on you too much.
