Yeah, I know this is a bit low-fidelity, but I didn’t want to spend a lot of effort on this one and so I just did a “one-take wonder” outside.
It’s a shame that they put this in a blue Zima-looking bottle and give it such a chintzy look, because I think this is pretty much what regular Bud Light should taste like. Watery, with an adjunct twang on the back end, but a nice, sweet, lager. I’d just call this one Budweiser Premium Lager and call it a day.
Beyond the Pour grade: C
Yes, I know it’s been a hell of a long time since I’ve updated here. Life has been… hectic. Work has been crazy, I’m doing a tiny bit of effort to help my fiancee plan our wedding, and I just haven’t had a lot of time to post here. Oh, sure, I’ve still been posting videos on my Youtube channel, but I just haven’t been bothering to post stuff here.
Well, that’s about to change, because a project I’ve been trying to get off the ground for months now has finally found fruition, and if you read the title of this post, I think you already have a good idea what it is: The Beyond the Pour Podcast.
My buddy Ryan is joining me in this project. We’re going to be talking craft beer, but not doing reviews, but rather commentary on beer news, chat about events, and every episode will have some special topic near and dear to the hearts of beer nerds like us. This episode, we’re talking about the ethics of beer reviewing. Next week? Who knows! If you’ve got ideas for discussion, we’re definitely all ears.
Plans are to post these approximately biweekly, although that may change based on interest and availability.
I’m excited about getting to do this, and I hope my readers are as well.
0:00 to 5:46 What’s we’re drinking now and what we’ve been drinking lately.

Thanks a lot for the support, guys, and if you like what I do here on the website and what I do on the Youtube channel, I hope you’ll give us a listen. Cheers!
