Didja notice this guy didn't say what he drank? Probably Buttwiper.
Coors is one of the few decent brewers in the USA as far as I'm concerned.
Where else can you find a beer brewed with spring water, brewed, bottled,
and packaged all within the same complex, shipped out within 16 minutes
of being packaged, kept under refrigeration the entire time it's en
route, and has a brewer-imposed shelf duration that's less than half that
of any other major brewery in the USA? I've toured the Anheuser-Busch
plants in Ft. Collins and in St. Louis. By the looks of their breweries
and the cleanliness inside, it's no wonder that most American beers
taste like piss.

Seriously, of the widely distributed domestic brews I'd say Samuel Adams
can justify their claim to be the best beer brewed in America. At or least
its a viable contender. But it cost just as much as imports (more than some.)
Of the main stream less expensive beers I think Rolling Rock is one of
the most under-rated. But what do I know? One of my favorite cheap
brews is the domestic version of Carling Black Label. I actually
prefer it to many of the so called "premium" domestic brews. The pricing
suggests to me brewers must go to extra effort to make most domestics so
tasteless. I actually brew most of the beer I consume myself.
Is there a rec.beer newgroup we should be cross posting to?

Where is this second brewery? I live in Denver and frequent the Coors
plant. I was just there about 3 weeks ago and they still say on the
tour that it's the one and only Coors plant in the U.S. Note that
in Canada that Molson produces some of the Coors that is sold. That's
why Coors says that the Golden brewery is the only one in the U.S.
>Being shipped within 16 minutes is irrelevant, as AB has MORE breweries,
>and doesn't have to ship their beer nearly as far as coors does, hence,
>the beer you get from AB will STILL probably be more fresh than that
>from Coors, unless maybe you live in Golden.
Distance doesn't matter. It takes 28 hours to drive from Golden, CO
to the east coast. 28 hours of driving under refrigeration is a heck
of a lot better than 10 hours under no refrigeration plus warehousing
BTW, there is a liquor store 3 blocks from the Coors plant that says
"Freshest Coors Anywhere" on it. Not true, either. You get 2 free
mugs of beer when you tour the brewery. I have to say that the beer
inside the brewery tastes incredibly good. Not sure why, but it does.
>Your comment on cleanliness confuses me. As I've understood Coors has
>had problems all along with health inspectors and health department
>personel. In fact, it was just last week when they were accused
>(correctly or not, I do not know) of dumping various nasties in Clear
>Creek. I too have toured both plants, and find the Fort Collins plant
>MUCH more clean.
I've lived in Denver for over 6 years and have never heard of a case
of Coors being accused of health violations. The only thing I remember
is the mouse-in-the-can story, that was proven a fraud. I don't think
a brewery with the size and reputation of Coors would be dumb enough
to dump waste into Clear Creek. Clear Creek isn't exactly the size
of the Mississippi. I toured the AB brewery soon after it opened.
Although the Coors plant is older and shows some signs of age while
th AB plant is only 2 (?) years old, from what I saw, the impression
I got was Coors had more strict cleanliness rules than did AB.
By the way, the Coors tour is more enjoyable, in my opinion. Also,
if you just want to go to the gift shop/bar area, you can opt to take
the "short tour" and they'll let you. Most of my tours have been
of this nature :-)
I know, I know. Take this discussion somewhere else. Gladly. Send
replies directly. I'm not out to start a flame war.
Here's the joke:
How many Irismen does it take to change a lightbulb?
Five. One to hold the lightbulb and four to drink until the room spins.
I agree, though, that Coors is better than Bladderweiser!

I think that I shall never hear
A poem lovelier than beer.
The stuff that Joe's Bar has on tap,
With golden base and snowy cap.
The stuff that I can drink all day
Until my mem'ry melts away.
Poems are made by fools, I fear
But only Schlitz can make a beer.

I also seem to remember that Coors was going to revise their label to say
"Brewed with pure mountain spring water," dropping the "Rocky" when the
new plant actually began brewing. Renaming the local mountain is news
For my 2 C<backspace>/ worth, I really liked Coor's Herman Joseph's, but
they quit brewing it at the beginning of this year. My private stash has
finally run out. :-(
